2010 is the chance. Sure there have been chances since then. But with the maturing of Tyrod Taylor, the mega-core of the stacked backfield, a seasoned set of receivers, and a solid offensive line, the Hokies appear to have one of the most balanced attacks we've seen this side of the turn of the century.
So Boise State will travel to -- lets face it Hokie Country -- Washington DC to open the season on Labor Day. By all accounts, the 2009 [Insert U-word] Broncos will be ranked in the top five, perhaps as high as two or three. They return 21 of 22 starters from that squad.
The Hokies return eight starters on offense and for once the questions are on the defense and special teams side of the ball. However, we can always count on DC Bud Foster to put together a solid team.
If you follow the buzz on the boards, the Hokies are stronger, faster, and generally more talented at every position. Faster in the secondary. Stronger on the line. This means one thing. The game will be exciting. I can't wait!
