What They're Saying About Virginia Tech's Second Spring Scrimmage

Casey should have a first-hand account of Friday's scrimmage later today. For now, let's hear from the others who were either at the scrimmage and Kyle Tucker, who was no doubt single-handedly crushing a large Funky Q Chicken at the Mellow Mushroom across the street from Doak in Tallahassee.

Offense lights up second scrimmage (Hokie Haven)

"He didn't disappoint in the least not just scoring, but flashing some outstanding explosiveness against the first team defense nonetheless. Wilson displayed some great power and the ability to break tackles, breaking three on one of his big runs. He also showed off an impressive spin move and the ability to block. Wilson ended up with 76-yards on eight carries."

Friday Night Lights (The Key Play)

"Thomas also showed some potential game-breaking speed getting loose for several scampers as well as two Tyrod-esque sideline throws to Coale and Jarret Boykin. Both the first and second team offenses struggled in the final two minutes of the half. They were each given multiple attempts at running a two minute drill but did not gain much yardage."

Virginia Tech launches air offensive in scrimmage (Randy King)

"Could this be Air Beamer brewing here? If Friday night's scrimmage in front of about 1,000 chilled die-hards at Lane Stadium was an indication of things to come, Virginia Tech's offense may be moving much more through the air than on the ground this fall."

Thomas, Wilson and WRs shine in Tech scrimmage (Norm Wood)

"While the offense did its fair share of mincing up the secondary, the first team defensive line had a few eye-opening performances. Defensive end J.R. Collins logged two "sacks" (they were sacks of the one-hand touch variety; very limited contact on quarterbacks) and posted four tackles for loss."

Offense dominates second full scrimmage (Kyle Tucker)

"All-American CB Jayron Hosley sat out the scrimmage with a head injury, potentially a slight concussion, according to secondary coach Torrian Gray. Senior backup Cris Hill worked with the first team in Hosley’s absence and broke up one of Thomas’ passes in the end zone."

"Offense highlighted Virginia Tech's second full spring scrimmage Friday night at Lane Stadium, as new starting quarterback Logan Thomas completed 9 of 16 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns, both to wide receiver Danny Coale."
