A Stanford blogger briefs us on the Cardinal prior to Monday's Orange Bowl.
Virginia Tech is having to delay its flight to Miami for the Orange Bowl because some players in the 757 are still stranded at home.
The Hokies have not had a lot of success against quarterbacks who wound up being selected in the first round of the NFL Draft.
"But now, Foster has decided to move sophomore Bruce Taylor from mike to backer and play Taylor’s backup, redshirt freshman Jack Tyler, at mike. This doesn’t mean that Edwards definitely won’t play in the Orange Bowl. Foster could still play Taylor at his regular mike spot at points during the game, in which case Edwards would be the backer. As of this moment, though, Foster is practicing Taylor only at backer, and giving him all the first-team snaps."
The Hokies are rumored to be wearing orange helmets against Stanford. It would be the fifth different helmet they've worn this year.
The Hokies are struggling to sell their allotment of bowl tickets. But don't blame the university or its fans.
