Not much information is being released with regards to football practice, but we’ve managed to pick up on a few odds and ends in the last week.  Today we’ll discuss everything from the quarterbacks, to virtual reality, to the weather forecast for the Spring Game.

Lydon Gets Reps with the #1 Defense

I’ve written repeatedly that the Hokies need better production from their mike linebacker this season.  Both Andrew Motuapuaka (r-Jr.) and Carson Lydon (So.) need as many reps as possible, and may the best man win.

Motuapuaka missed some time last week with a calf injury, which allowed Lydon to get reps with the #1 defense for the first time in his career.  Motu’s injury is not serious, as far as I know, and he could be back practicing with the starters by now.  While I wanted Lydon to get reps with the #1 defense, I didn’t want it to happen like that, because Motu needs a lot of work as well.
