Pro wrestling article belongs elsewhere The Sun has reached a new low with its prominent coverage in the Sports section of Kevin Eck fulfilling his fantasy in an event that is not even a sport ["Bumping up: A longtime pro wrestling fan finds getting into the ring to be an exhilarating (and painful) experience," Monday]. First, the article belonged in the Today section with the rest of the entertainment news, not in the Sports section. Second, more coverage was devoted to Eck's fantasy than was devoted to NCAA wrestling all year by The Sun. It's ridiculous that real athletes are ignored in favor of Eck's idiotic venture.

Few college quarterbacks have come into their first season as a starter with the kind of expectations that follow Virginia Tech's Marcus Vick. It is nothing new, considering the kind of scrutiny Vick has already faced. Ever since he was growing up in Newport News, Va., Vick's progress - and his missteps - have been measured against those of his big brother, Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl quarterback Michael Vick. But after seemingly falling off the precipice called fame last year when he was arrested twice in a five-month period and suspended from school for a semester, the younger Vick has emerged a star in his own right.

GOOD MORNING --Marcus Vick-- What's the fine connected with the latest charge? Several million in NFL money. Question of the day Will Texas quarterback Vince Young be successful in the NFL? Success in the NFL is so unpredictable, but based on Vince's performance in the Rose Bowl, this seems like a no-brainer. Kevin R. Mack Joppatowne Texas quarterback Vince Young will be succesful in the NFL, but he has a little more work to do on his passing for the next level. Derrick Burnett II Randallstown I think he will be very successful in NFL. I believe he could be a great receiver or running back if not at quarterback.

SUFFOLK, Va. -- Marcus Vick was charged yesterday with three counts of brandishing a firearm at a McDonald's in Suffolk on Sunday - one day after he formally announced plans to turn pro and two days after he was dismissed from the Virginia Tech football team. Vick, 21, surrendered to the Suffolk Magistrate's Office after three warrants were issued for his arrest. Bond was set at $10,000, Suffolk police Lt. Debbie George said. Vick posted the bond and was released, according to his lawyer, Larry Woodward.

College Park -- He didn't grin and didn't seem to be exaggerating. With a straight face, Marcus Vick called his performance "horrible." This quizzical assessment came just minutes after the Virginia Tech quarterback ran for a career-high 133 yards in the Hokies' 28-9 win over Maryland last night. He also threw for 211 yards - just 12 shy of another personal best. It just goes to show you that one man's horrible is another's Heisman. Even though Vick will choose to dwell on the three interceptions - which were glaring but had zero effect on the final outcome - he is on a new playing stage now. His older brother is called Superman.

BLACKSBURG, Va. -- The rivalry between Virginia Tech and Miami began a decade ago when the Hokies, 0-2 to start the 1995 season after being shut out by Cincinnati, beat the Hurricanes for the first time in school history. "It was kind of an ugly game," Miami coach Larry Coker, then an assistant under Butch Davis, recalled of Virginia Tech's 13-7 win. "Tech went on to have a great year, and from there they built and built and kept building." The Hokies didn't lose again that season, finishing a 10-2 campaign with their first Big East championship and a victory over Texas in the Sugar Bowl.

The Orioles have claimed left-hander Brian Burres, 24, off waivers from the Giants. Don't pretend you've never heard of him. He went 9-6 with a 4.20 ERA in 26 games at Double-A Norwich and was 5-2 with a 2.11 ERA in 11 games in May and June. Still not sure? He was drafted in the 31st round in 2000 and made the Single-A California League All-Star team in 2004, going 12-1 with a league-leading 2.84 ERA. He's 32-21 with a 3.84 ERA in five minor league seasons. Oh come on, you're not even trying!

Va. Tech (8-5, 4-3 Big East) Strengths: The Hokies no longer have to worry about juggling quarterbacks, which they did much of last season, because Marcus Vick was suspended for the year last month. Not having that distraction will help Bryan Randall, who needs just 523 yards to become the Hokies' career passing leader. Virginia Tech's defense should be a strength, as usual. The Hokies gave up just 24 points to No. 1 Southern California in their season opener, and they held the Trojans' vaunted offense in check for most of the night.
