Virginia Tech is preparing to face two quarterbacks when it plays Virginia on Saturday.
After seeing his defense get uncharacteristically abused by North Carolina on Saturday, Virginia Tech defensive coordinator Bud Foster offered a simple solution for the Hokies' woes.
Tariq Edwards may have returned to the field for the Virginia Tech football team Saturday, but defensive coordinator Bud Foster said the junior linebacker is still a week or two away from really being ready to contribute and challenge for a starting role.
He didn't need to return the shoe.
Torrian Gray's voice sounded horse and raspy.
Demitri Knowles apparently was one of the last Hokies to find out. Told that the maroon team, for which he'll be a wide receiver, will start Saturday's annual Virginia Tech football spring game at Lane Stadium down 21 points, the redshirt freshman was taken aback.
Virginia Tech believes its defensive linemen can be giants. Or at least play like them.
When the Virginia Tech football team held its first scrimmage of the spring this week, coach Frank Beamer described the performance as "ragged."
Danny Coale remained a team player to the end.
All Jack Tyler wanted was the same opportunity to play as everybody else.
Soon after the Sugar Bowl matchup was set, Virginia Tech free safety Eddie Whitley was bombarded by text messages about Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson.
It seems No. 11 Virginia Tech has spent more time defending its Sugar Bowl selection than celebrating it.
Shane Beamer spent 11 years away from Virginia Tech, but his dislike for Virginia didn't wane.
Lane Stadium roared as Virginia Tech stuffed Miami's fake field-goal attempt in the first series of last Saturday's game. Then, Alonzo Tweedy saw something sobering: teammate Jeron Gouveia-Winslow limping toward the sideline.
The smile creased Bruce Taylor's face a split second after he heard the question. Was he aware what year Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato is?
"It wasn't a front. It was the real thing," Foster said. "And I think everybody saw that."
Defensive coordinator Bud Foster said he thinks Taylor's teammates responded to his honest and unbridled passion for the game.
