Georgia Tech’s quest to get out of the cellar of the ACC has taken a hit.

Glen Rice Jr., the team’s leading scorer and rebounder, has been suspended indefinitely and will not travel to Virginia Tech this weekend, head coach Brian Gregory announced after practice on Friday.

Rice Jr. was suspended for the first three games of the season for a violation of team rules.

Gregory did not get into specifics about the latest suspension.

Rice Jr., a 6-foot-5 swingman, is averaging 13.0 points and 6.7 rebounds per game this season. Georgia Tech has lost 12 of its last 14 games and currently sits at 2-9 in the ACC.

The rumor is that Glen Rice Jr. got caught in bed with Sarah Palin Jr.
So he was dismissed for wanting some man-love?  I didn't think that was allowed by the NCAA.  Title IX or something like that.  I also find it strange that Sarah Palin would name her son Sarah, she must really like that name.  It seems it would get mighty confusing around the ol' Palin household.  Imagine Mr. Palin having to ask, Sarah is that you in the bathroom or Sarah?  The probably just call him Junior...or Al.

This is the "clean out" year in the ACC. A group of bad coaches such as Sidney Lowe, Oliver Purnell, Frank Haith (just wait a few years at Missouri), a burnt out Gary Williams, the guy at UVA and the guy at Georgia Tech who looked good in a suit, but had NO discipline and COULD NOT coach, left recently. Bennett has gotten control at UVA and the others like Gregory are now fighting to restablish discipline and recruiting and fundamentals at these various schools. The ACC has the best group of coaches right now as it has had since its glory days. It will take them a few years. Only Seth Greenburg seems to be slipping.

I've been a fan of GT b-ball since 1989, and Hewitt had to go, just like Cremins had to go when his time was up.  Cremins had to go becuase he never recruited depth and it started to slow the programm down.  Although Hewitt was a good recruiter and a good person, he was a terrible coach.  They had zero half-court offense, they turned the ball over at an all-time high, they couldn't shoot free throws and they never, ever won on the road.  He had more losing seasons then any of them.  He HAD to go, GT didn't have a choice....Gregory inherited a team that would have sucked for anybody, they will be better next year, and will make a tun for the ACC title in two years.  Trust me, you can't judge a coach by 3/4 of a season - give Gregory some time.

Ala Adam James false sense of entitlement syndrome!  "Me no think the rules apply to me"  "Me offspring of Great Player from Michigan"  "Me thinks I am better than the rest"  "Me no follow rules"  "Me call Daddy if you try kicking me off team"

I think they were satirizing the one night stand that Glen Rice and Sarah Palin had in 1987.  No need to get serious here!!!!

Maybe Georgia Tech should consider suspending its abysmal basketball program.  You know a program has thrown in the towel when they are expecting a chronic loser like Gregory to run their program.  Looks like GT has flushed its b-ball program down the toilet.  Honestly, they deserve to suck after firing a solid coach like Paul Hewitt.  Keep in mind Paul Hewitt led them to the national title game in 2003: farther than the esteemed Bobby Cremins ever led them.  My oh my does it suck to be a GT fan.  Their football program is trash as they cannot win a bowl game to save their lives and now their basketball program is in the dump.

Perhaps they would have lost 14 of their last 14 if Rice would not have played. Does not sound like it will make a lot of difference with him gone.
