ATLANTA -- Reggie Ball, who has taken nearly every snap at quarterback for Georgia Tech this season, has been ruled academically ineligible for the Gator Bowl.


Cornerback Kenny Scott is also academically ineligible, the school said Wednesday.


"You're disappointed for the young men and you're disappointed for the team," coach Chan Gailey said. "Although this is a very, very bad ending to the careers of these two young men, we can't forget the contributions they have made to the Georgia Tech program the last four years."


Ball, a senior, passed for 1,820 yards this season while starting every game. He threw for 20 touchdowns and was intercepted 14 times, but was criticized for inconsistency, especially after Tech's offense sputtered in a regular season-ending loss to Georgia and a loss to Wake Forest in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.


Scott was a three-year starter. This season he had 50 tackles, two interceptions and 10 pass breakups.


Georgia Tech plays West Virginia in the Gator Bowl on Jan. 1.


This may not be all that bad.....Reggie Ball can be terrible at times.
