1: How does VT’s quarterback situation stack up with the quarterback situations of their ACC opponents this year?

Chris Coleman: This is a great question, and as you pointed out in your post where you posed the question, there is a lot of quarterback turnover in the ACC this year. Let’s take a look at the situation at each ACC team the Hokies face in 2014:

Georgia Tech – Last year’s starter, Vad Lee, decided to transfer to James Madison in the offseason. As far as I’m concerned, “Bad” Vad could have stayed, because he didn’t turned out to be the kind of “Bad” that Georgia Tech fans were hoping for. His replacement is likely to be Justin Thomas (r-So.), though Timmy Byerly (r-Jr.) made things closer than expected this spring. Thomas threw two interceptions in 17 attempts last season. He can obviously run, and he has some experience, but he’s yet another new guy that Paul Johnson has to break in.
