Reloading Virginia Tech must replace magic bullets on defense
The three-point loss to Kansas in the Orange Bowl wasn't the end of the world for the Virginia Tech football team, of course. But it was a window of opportunity for a top-five ranking, and it may be awhile before that window opens again. Not that the Hokies will devolv...

At quarterback for Virginia Tech: Yin and yang
For most college football coaches, having two starting quarterbacks is like having two girlfriends -- it seems like a great idea at first, but it will come back to bite you. Credit Virginia Tech's Frank Beamer and offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring, then, with tur...

Tech has quarterback quandary at a bad time
The Virginia Tech Hokies are undeniably fun to watch. They always have been. Their defense is opportunistic and aggressive, their offense freewheeling, their special teams perhaps the best in the nation year after year. Beamerball, they call it. Moreover, under Frank B...

Hall goes out, Hokies’ season gets tougher
No one had a clue. Virginia Tech linebacker Vince Hall, the team's leading tackler, was joking with reporters after the Hokies' victory over Clemson last Saturday. When it was mentioned that Clemson had run 90 offensive plays, Hall quipped, "Well, I was in there for 84...

After LSU debacle, Taylor’s the guy
Maybe there was a silver lining in the grim dark cloud that enveloped the Virginia Tech football team last Saturday night. If nothing else, the 48-7 Bayou butt-kicking at the hands (and feet) of No. 2 LSU hastened the long-anticipated debut of freshman quarterback Tyrod...

Virginia Tech’s top-10 rating is on the line
It's a bit ironic, because Virginia Tech has long been criticized -- even by its fans -- for its soft early season schedules. If you took a poll of Hokie Nation this week, though, most would be happy to see a James Madison or William & Mary or Ohio University on the m...

Jason Worilds has a knack for ‘Beamerball’
Jason Worilds is Frank Beamer's kind of football player. He's fast (a high school sprinter), he's aggressive, and he's a monster in the weight room. But best of all for the coach who made "Beamerball" a national catch phrase, Worilds blocks punts. "He's had a great pr...
