Georgia Tech Football Players React To NCAA Punishment: 'Motivation Is Coming Out Of This'

After the NCAA and Georgia Tech revealed that the school's football program is now on four years of probation and the 2009 ACC Championship no longer exists, current and former players took to Twitter to gripe. Nick Claytor might have the best argument -- he wonders whether Phil Smith's broken leg can be vacated too. Names like Tony Hollings, Derrick Morgan and Mario Butler have checked in so far, while Demaryius Thomas has again denied doing anything wrong.

And, yes, a few Georgia Bulldogs had a little fun with the news as well.
