Hokie Links 8/6


I came across several interesting links over the last couple of days that I wanted to share. If you're psyched about football season coming up and camp starting tomorrow, you might want to scan these to see what you might've missed. Here are the 8/6 links.

  • Andy Bitter of the Virginian Pilot takes a look at the Hokies recently released depth chart and notable changes from what has been considered essentially common knowledge since the end of last season.
  • The Washington Post interviews Bud Foster about the interchangeability of several players and his contingency plan if things go wrong.
  • Andy Bitter looks at several position battles that should take shape in the coming weeks.
  • The Washington Post examines which freshmen could be impact players this year for the Hokies with Beamer playing more freshmen right off the bat over the last couple of years. Though I disagree with one guy they've picked, their arguments are pretty well-reasoned. It's an interesting read.
  • Mike Barber of VT Effect provides four potential obstacles that stand in the way of the Hokies winning the ACC in 2012.
  • The Washington Post also reports that Tech could eschew conventional wisdom and start a freshman at WHIP despite having an incumbent starter and two experienced seniors at the position.
  • This article from Fansided 150 talks about Sam Singer, a 2013 basketball recruit who the Hokies have offered are very interested in.
  • This article also from Fansided 150 confirms that Virginia Tech offered 2014 Missouri offensive lineman Andy Bauer. The Hokies are in need of offensive lineman, so maybe this is evidence that the Hokies game plan has changed and they are continuing to look at players who are already committed elsewhere.
  • Andy Bitter makes his ACC picks for the 2012 season, but may be second-guessing his decision to pick Virginia Tech over Florida State in the ACC Championship game.
  • Bitter also does a fan Q&A about the ACC for the Roanoke Times, and it's pretty Virginia Tech intensive.
  • CBS Sports breaks down pertinent questions the Hokies need to answer to have a successful season.
  • CBS Sports does a best case/worst case for the Hokies in 2012. Personally I think these kinds of things are a little silly, but if you're into it, definitely check it out.
