It’s almost time for the Hokies to start preparation for NC State, and VT held their last full scrimmage of fall
practice Saturday. Here’s an eyewitness account of the quarterbacks (they looked good), a resurgent Cary Wade at rover,
and how the offensive line is coming along.

Here’s the report:

Good and bad at the QB position, but mostly good. The ball was slick, and I think that contributed a few erratic
passes. Marcus Vick looked very good, except for a couple of overthrown out patterns. It certainly doesn’t seem
like the coaches have settled on Sean Glennon at backup. He and Cory Holt got equal reps today, and Holt
put him to shame from a production standpoint. Glennon sat in the pocket too long once and got sacked by Noland
. Never even saw him. The ball should have been released two or three seconds before Burchette got there.
There was also a delay of game when Glennon was on offense. He just didn’t look very poised today.

Holt on the other hand had a solid day. At one point he completed four straight passes to lead the 2nd team offense
down the field against the 1st team defense. His fifth pass hit John Kinzer right in the gut for an easy TD from
about 25 yards out. Unfortunately, Kinzer dropped it. Holt overthrew Kinzer on the next play, but he was rolling out to
his right and had to throw across his body. He narrowly overthrew Jordan Trott in the end zone on a fade. Very
close to being a TD. So while not a perfect performance, it was pretty good I thought. It certainly should give the
coaches something to think about.

Branden Ore was probably the best player on the field today, followed closely by Eddie Royal and Josh
. Ore had three TDs, one from about 50 yards
