#20 Virginia Tech
Beamer ball is close to being alive and well…great defense, and a playmaker at QB. But to be considered whole, the special teams has to come along. The pride in “teams play” in Blacksburg and with the head coach will provide for enough emphasis on that part of the game to make it a difference maker again.
These guys could be ranked higher however; the offense’s progress will depend on an inexperienced offensive line and running back crew. Maybe the talented group of receivers can be more of a factor early to give the QB options in the run/pass decision making process.
The Hokies schedule sets up for 9 wins without much of a stretch. If they can establish the running backs early in the season 10 plus wins are possible.
Coach Taylor’s countdown includes #21 Michigan State, #22 Auburn, #23 Stanford, #24 Notre Dame, #25 North Carolina and the bonus #25-B Boise State. Keep tabs on the daily countdown via our Facebook page and on our blog. How will your rankings stack up against Coach Taylor’s?
