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.
Were you expecting somebody else?
But that Tyrod... I feel the same way with him out there as I did when Michael Vick was out there. The next play could be a big play. Any play has a chance of going a long ways. Tyrod gives you that same element right now. - Frank Beamer
On August 18thHokieSports.com 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.

This is last weekend until December without Hokie football.
/takes deep breath
Men do something nice for your wives, fiancées, girlfriends, side pieces or booty calls this weekend because going forward there's only time for football, grilling, lawn games, tailgating and drinking.
The coverage here is going to pick up next week as we focus on Boise State, so strap in and enjoy the ride
After being wrong in 2009, taking the Hokies over Georgia Tech, I feel secure in proclaiming Virginia Tech the best team in a very, very deep Coastal division. It stands to reason that the best team in the Coastal is the best team in the conference as a whole, right? My confidence stems from the simple idea that the Hokies enter 2010 with the offense as the undisputed strength; in my mind, there’s nothing to worry about on defense.
Since next week is going to be serious talk and all, here's one last facetious post. I present in descending order from indifference to flat out hate all twelve of this year's opponents. I used an arbitrary beer fueled formula known only to my mind based on prior social interactions, game results and stereotypical information to rank them. To be fair and balanced, I will mention one complimentary thing about each school.
12. James Madison University
+ Who doesn't enjoy beating up on your best friend's little kiss ass brother?
- Their nickname is the Dukes, reminds me too much of that crappy school in Durham, NC.
11. Central Michigan University
+ What's not to like about a two hour road trip to Bells Brewery, one of the very finest in the nation?
- It's only a matter of time before the stench of DickRod spreads north west.
Eric, Josh and I all picked Miami to beat us. We felt we owed y'all an apology. Here you are:
Even when getting pummeled to the ground Jacory throws up the "U".
- Who's delivering the shot to Jacory's chest?

With the start of the Hokies' football season only 12 days away, now is as an appropriate time as any for us scribes to make our humble predictions. Eric, Josh and I are going to pick both the outcome of each game as well as assign a confidence of win percentage. The latter is an idea inspired by Bud at Tomahawk Nation. It's an easy concept, basically we'll assign the percentage chance (0-100%) of Tech winning a given game and then derive our expected wins for the season by adding up the confidences and dividing by 100.
Occasionally, I do wish I lived in black and white times. End zone celebrations were simpler back then, one only had to pump his arms in the air and walk back triumphantly to the sideline after scoring.
Dignified gentlemen could wear piped plaid pants without being ridiculed.
