Has the offseason dragged on longer than usual? It sure feels like it.
Maybe that's because the Hokies open their season against West Virginia, a hated rival they haven't played since 2005. Maybe it has something to do with the uncertainty of which quarterback will trot onto FedExField against the 'Eers. Maybe it's because we have to wait until Sunday to watch the Hokies play.
While making this year's trailer — combing through highlights and film from 2016 — I realized it's because the football program is in capable hands. Last season we got a sneak preview of what might happen on the field when a tough, blue collar defense is paired with a high powered offense. It didn't disappoint. Excitement is certainly in the air over Tech's prospects for 2017, and beyond.
It's August and Virginia Tech football is around the corner. It's almost time to fire up your grills, get your coolers stocked, and tailgates planned. Although I can't speed up time, I can offer you this: The 2017 Virginia Tech Football Trailer.
