2015 Virginia Tech Season Preview
Frank Beamer’s squads at Virginia Tech have been so consistent over the years that when the Hokies finish a season with 8 wins, it is almost always an abnormality. Virginia Tech lost quarterback Logan Thomas, and star cornerback Kyle Fuller, and Antone Exum to the NFL draft following the 2013 season, and come into 2014 with question marks at those positions. But don’t count the Hokies out, Beamer has brought in a load of young talent, and junior quarterback Michael Brewer should have the offense mastered for the first kickoff. Look for the boys from Blacksburg to come out in typical Virginia Tech fashion, with outstanding special teams and stifling, fundamentally sound defense. We will know early what to expect from the Hokies as they travel on the road in week 2 to the Horseshoe to take on Ohio State. An October 4th matchup at North Carolina could be between the ACC Coastal Division’s top two teams.
