French and I attended the open scrimmage this afternoon. We wanted to give you an accurate practice report as quickly as possible, hence the following stream of notes. Much of this was written at Texas Roadhouse on our phones, so appoligies in advance for any typos. If you have any specific questions, ask them in the comments and we'll be happy to answer them. If you attended pratice, please leave your thoughts. --Joe
1) 1st team offense ran either pistol or the shotgun almost 70 percent of the time. Pistol featured dual motion, usually with the tight end moving from a set position to a wingback (similar to Clemson's TE Dwayne Allen) and then the flanker motioning to either run or fake a sweep. Also, as the scrimmage moved to 1's vs 1's, the Hokies featured the fullback out of the pistol, starting in an offset I and then motioning to a wing.
