Spring games score about a two on the entertainment scale. They do, however, provide a glimpse of the product that will be showcased in the fall. Coach Justin Fuente will debut his edition of the Hokies in Lane Stadium. This is a scrimmage, but the message it sends about a program is monumental.

Ohio State certainly filled the 'Shoe yesterday, and some other notables stand out. First year Georgia coach Kirby Smart called out his 'Dawg fans, and they delivered. 93,000 Bulldogs invaded Sanford Stadium for the scrimmage. A SCRIMMAGE.
One thing for sure, we better be able to draw more than that other school in Virginia. They are in a similar situation as the Hokies. First year coach Bronco Mendenhall hopes to fill Scott Stadium. It won't be hard to beat last year's crowd:
