Payne Suspended for Academic Reasons

Virginia football coach Al Groh announced today that redshirt freshman tailback Keith Payne (Herndon, Va.) has been suspended from the Virginia football team for failure to live up to his academic
responsibilities.
"The University of Virginia is all about ambition, accountability and
achievement," Groh said. "Our football program is aligned with the mission of the University. Keith is not holding up his end of the deal despite significant direction and effort from many people around the University. We hope he will respond positively to this challenge, do what is expected of him and return to positive status."
