  • The mystery of why Virginia Tech linebacker Alan Tisdale was suspended for his team’s first six games has been solved. Tisdale was suspended for gambling.
  • There apparently was nothing nefarious. He didn’t bet on college football. He self-reported that he had bet on the NBA Finals. All of the bets were placed legally on FanDuel.
  • All told, Tisdale placed about 100 bets totaling about $400; none of the bets exceeded $5.
  • His total winnings: $41.
  • And for that, he missed six games. C’mon, NCAA. Lighten up.
