When Virginia Tech wide receiver Ike Whitaker got busted for public intoxication last Friday after blowing a .33 on the ol’ Blood Alcohol Meter, he did what any reasonable young collegiate athlete would do: He blamed his coach.
(Beamer, picking out the next life he wants to ruin)
Apparently, Whitaker blames his drunken escapade on the fact that he was self-medicating after Frank Beamer suspended him for missing a morning practice. Beamer suggested that Whitaker transfer to another school if he wanted to play during his final year of eligibility, but Whitaker should make no mistake about, he wouldn’t be played for the Hokies again that year.
In response, Whitaker turned back to the bottle.
