    Thumbs down Tech is a joke

    Jackson has already returned to practice. Why didn't they call it what it is -- a suspension. Don't call it a dismissal when you know the kid is coming back. Give me a break. Did anyone really believe he wouldn't be back.

    Re: Tech is a joke

    I expected more from Knight, but not from Tech. I guess living in TX for 7 years has tainted my view. When I think of Tech, I think of Troy being robbed of the Doak Walker Award and the kid from Tech getting it. As I recall, he was dismissed from the school after that semester - 0.00 grade point. I believe it was Byron Hanspard -- he was good - but he was no Troy Davis!

    Re: Tech is a joke

    How does this even surprise anyone? This is the state of college hoops. Apparently not even BK is above it.

    When McD suspended Taylor I really think McD did it because he thought it was best for the kid, not so he could send some sort of half hearted tough guy message.

    Re: Tech is a joke

    OK guys lets look at this objectively. ISU and TT coaches both suspended a guy. TT brought him back. Does anyone here think that Taylor won't be back for our games? The only difference I see is the team name. I hate TT as much as the next guy, but come on.

    I don't think Bk would suspend a guy to send a tough guy message, he would just throw a chair at him or choke like he usually does.

    Re: Tech is a joke

    Well, from what I understand about the Taylor suspension, it was something that came from wanting to get Mike on the right track academically. In his post game show after the EA Sports game, McD said that he just wanted to keep him from falling on his face at semester.

    JJ was "dismissed from the team" because of academic stuff. Perhaps it's a poor word choice on the part of the general, but it sends a different picture to me.
