NEWS FLASH: WATER IS DANGEROUS

Virginia Tech starting senior linebacker Vince Hall remains questionable for tonight's (Fed Ex) Orange Bowl against Kansas with a bruised left knee he injured Sunday at the team beach party. Evidently, he hurt it while “playing in the ocean.”

Virginia Tech athletics spokesman Bryan Johnston said Hall was in the water when the injury occurred. Although Hall rode a personal watercraft (jet ski) at the party, he wasn't injured while riding it, Johnston said.

Head Coach Frank Beamer said Hall was not riding a jet ski when he was injured.

Team trainer Mike Goforth said Tuesday that he believed Hall banged his knee while riding a jet ski.

A team spokesman said Hall hurt himself while "just playing in the ocean."

Kansas Athletic Director Lew Perkins issued a statement denying the rumor that Hall, who was wearing a tee shirt featuring a likeness of a Big Mac, was injured while running away from Jayhawk head coach Mark Mangino.
