1) Which true freshmen have played so far that you wish hadn’t? – jdbowman

Chris Coleman: Here’s a list of the true freshmen who have seen action thus far…

DB Devon Hunter
RB Jalen Holston
WR Sean Savoy
WR Hezekiah Grimsley
LB Rayshard Ashby
DB Bryce Watts
TE Dalton Keene
LB Dylan Rivers
WR Kalil Pimpleton

That’s the complete list, unless I missed one.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of playing Rivers or Rayshard Ashby.  As far as I can tell, Rivers is No. 3 at mike, and Rivers is No. 3 at backer. It’s hard to get reps to third string players during the season, and playing them on the kickoff team doesn’t exactly get them a lot of decent work, since Joey Slye booms all of his kickoffs out of the endzone. That said, we knew that the Hokies weren’t going to redshirt all four of their linebacker recruits this year.  Playing two and redshirting two was always the likely scenario, in order to get some spacing.  Ashby might be the frontrunner to start at mike next season, and Rivers could be the starter at backer if Tremaine Edmunds leaves.
