Tomorrow Is Another Day

I was confident in a Hokie win going into yesterday's game. In fact, I'd assured myself there was no chance we'd lose to Boise State, and for no good reason too. Oh sure, if you had asked me I could've given you specifics: Ryan Williams, a matured Tyrod Taylor, my faith in Bud Foster, etc... But really I believed, like everyone else, that fate had our back.

Preseason ACC Roundtable

From time to time I'll engage my fellow ACC bloggers and participate in a roundtable question and answer. Brendan From Old Virginia is hosting the first discussion. He'll include my answers in with everyone else's and I'll let y'all know when it's up on his site. Let's get cultured people...

1. At UVA we have made wholesale changes to everything this past offseason: the coaching staff, the offense, the defense, the uniforms, even the color of the equipment shed. What change or changes on your own team are you most looking forward to watching play out on the field this season?

David Wilson Will Play

Coach Beamer announced on his teleconference today that David Wilson won't be redshirting. Wilson has been nothing short of amazing during spring practice and summer camp (55 carries, 265 yards). He worked with the first team kickoff return during Saturday's final scrimmage and, according to those who saw it, had a spectacular 43-yard return. He also busted off a 25-yard carry against the starting defense.

2010 Nike Pro Combat Jersey

On August announced Virginia Tech would be one of ten schools outfitted with Nike Pro Combat uniforms.

Nike worked diligently with each university to bring relevant elements of the school’s rich heritage into the futuristic elite fit uniform designs. The collaborations with the universities produced the highly customized uniforms that will be revealed just days prior to the start of the 2010 college football season.

Below and after the jump are two picture of the jerseys and team shirt.

Ryan Williams will look dapper toting the rock in anything.

Eric, Josh and I all picked Miami to beat us. We felt we owed y'all an apology. Here you are:
