It's finally time for football. Feel free to discuss the Hokies' opener with Appalachian State in the comments section. I'll be around throughout the game as well as on The Twitter.
Be Excited If: Logan Thomas, David Wilson and the offensive line live up to the hype, Tech's linebackers are good in coverage and the Hokies keep their penalties and turnovers to a minimum.
Be Concerned If: Appalachian State avoids an early knockout punch, the Hokies' defense struggles to get off the field and Thomas' accuracy leaves a lot to be desired.
