NCAA: Virginia Tech RB Michael Holmes Dismissed

Virginia Tech dismissed tailback Michael Holmes from the university due to misdemeanor assault and battery charges.

Virginia Tech dismissed tailback Michael Holmes from the university due to misdemeanor assault and battery charges. 

The decision was made a month ago by the Virginia Tech Student Conduct Office. Athletic director Jim Weaver was informed last week and confirmed Holmes is no longer with the school. 

"He's permanently separated from the university."

The Richmond Times-Dispatch's Mike Barber reports the 20-year-old Holmes "was charged with malicious wounding, a felony, and two counts of simple assault, after an altercation in the 200 block of College Avenue early Sunday morning, April 21, hours after Tech's annual spring game."

Holmes was found guilty of a reduced charge of misdemeanor assault and battery on June 13. Barber says the two counts of simple assault were dropped. 

ESPN's Heather Dinich writes the reduction to a misdemeanor could have allowed Holmes to be reinstated to the team, as long as Weaver was cleared by the school. The athletic director then clarified he already heard from the Student Conduct Office even before he made a decision. 

"My role in this was non-involvement because it never got to us. The decision was made on campus before it ever came to us, and that might not be the commonplace, but it is certainly, I think, in effect at many schools."

Dinich adds Holmes was given a suspended-12 month jail sentence and a one-year probation for his involvement in the altercation. In addition, he was also ordered to pay $13.403 in restitution and not to have any contact with the victims. 

Holmes was the fourth-leading rusher of the Hokies in 2012 with 280 yards on 70 carries as a redshirt freshman.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
