Another Athlete to Leave Tech Because of Shootings?
Well, it appears Augustus Gilchrist is not the only athlete saying he wants out of a scholarship at Virginia Tech because of last month's shooting spree. Tight end Brandon Barden apparently wants to transfer to Vanderbilt. He lived in the dorm where two students were shot and killed. Barden's mother said her son was having second thoughts about choosing the Hokies over the Commodores - and that the shootings were the impetus to make a switch. Wonder how the NCAA will feel about that as it potentially weighs waiving the one year football and basketball players normally must sit out when transferring.
