An opposing coach's view
The big, talented Hokies have an abundance of weapons
"At 6 feet and 211 pounds, tailback Kevin Jones is strong and physical. He runs a little too upright, but when he gets out in the open he's something.... Quarterback Grant Noel doesn't make mistakes. He controls the tempo of the game.... Center Jake Grove, tackle Anthony Davis and guard Luke Owens are solid....The defense has a hard-nosed, blue-collar mentality.... Safety Willie Pile is a quasilinebacker. If you don't watch him, he'll make a lot of plays at the line of scrimmage."
