A Look at the ACC

Terry Bowden at Yahoo sports wrote this about the Hokies in his breakdown of the Atlantic Coast Conference:

"With the top two running backs, four wide receivers, the league-best tight end and a majority of the offensive linemen back, the decision-making of new QB Marcus Vick is the only question mark on what easily could be the most exciting offense in Blacksburg since older brother Michael was around. I spoke with Frank Beamer earlier this summer, and when we talked about his young QB it was clear that he believes Marcus Vick is the real deal.

Defensively, Tech returns five of its front seven from a defense that ended up last season No. 2 nationally in scoring defense. With three new starters in the secondary, opponents will try to attack VT through the air. They had better get rid of the ball quickly because DE Darryl Tapp leads a vicious pass rush.

If the Hokies can get past N.C. State in the season opener, they could be undefeated heading into their Nov. 5 showdown with Miami.
