Cornelson said the offensive line is the deepest he has ever been associated with and expects the line to have very good depth. He said that he has heard the talk about Patterson emerging as a possible starter from fan bases, but so far there is a guy named, "Willis" that doesn't plan on letting the starting job go anytime soon. He also mentioned the work ethic of the team. They all came in focused and ready for the season. Many players stayed after practice for weight lifting and other things that needed to be done before the season started.

Foster said that the defense has the experience factor that they lacked last year. He said that the defense was only second to UConn as far as being the youngest starting unit. He saw a lot of anger and focus on the defensive players when they came to practice. Unlike performance, the attitude and focus cannot be measured and he was very pleased with this going into the season. He said that what you see in Dax is for real. His temperament is like that in everything he does, including taking a chemistry test :-) He said that attitude has rubbed off on other players as Dax always is the first person to the weight room and last to leave the practice facility. It has gotten to where other players are coming with Dax and staying late to lift weights or whatever is needed when practice is completed. Dax has a brother and Foster is letting him know about the history of brothers playing at VT.

I cannot remember if Cornelson or Foster said that the coaching staff is probably one of the best staffs, if not the best,he has ever been associated with as far as a total staff working together.
