just one day until the much anticipated battle with Boston College, Tyrod Taylor
is still a game time decision for Thursday night. He has been getting work since
preparation for the Eagles began this past weekend, but Frank Beamer and his
staff are playing things close to the vest when it comes to the quarterback
Taylor suffered a high ankle sprain in Tech’s 43-14 win over Duke on October
13. Sean Glennon played very well in relief, completing 16-of-21 passes for 258
yards and two touchdowns. Beamer has stated that Glennon has had very good
practices in preparation for Boston College.
As of now, we don’t know which quarterback is going to start. We don’t even
know which is getting the majority of reps with the first team in practice. We
don’t know if we’ll see just one quarterback, or both. Don’t count on knowing
any of that until tomorrow night.
Vince Hall, still recovering from surgery, is definitely out for the Boston
College game. Brett Warren will start in his place again. Warren did a great job
against Duke, finishing with 11 tackles, three tackles for loss, a sack and an
interception. He’ll make his second career start against BC.
Whip linebacker Cam Martin, who has been down with mono, will play against
Boston College. He returned to practice on Monday and got a lot of work.
However, Cody Grimm will start at whip. Grimm has gotten more preparation time
in practice than the ailing Martin.
Men’s Basketball Picked 10th in the ACC
The ACC media picked the Virginia Tech men’s basketball team to finish 10th
in the ACC this coming season. Here is how the final voting looked.
There are 64 voters in the preseason poll, and all of them picked North Carolina
to win the conference. The voters were nearly split between Duke and NC State in
Virginia Tech lost Zabian Dowdell, Jamon Gordon and Coleman Collins, who
combined for 320 career starts. Longtime contributors Markus Sailes and Chris
Tucker, who played in 197 games between the two of them, are gone as well. As a
result, the Hokies will have a very young lineup on the court this season. The
good news is that this is the most-hyped freshman class in Virginia Tech
The Hokies tip off their season against Elon on November 9, the night before
the Florida State football game. Tipoff is scheduled for 7 pm.
