College Football Preview

The Post published its 2009 College Football Preview on Thursday.

The section includes a big-picture look at the hard-to-predict Atlantic Coast Conference, in addition to breakdowns of each of the schools in the Washington region.

I previewed the Hokies. In addition to position-by-position breakdowns, there is an article about Virginia Tech's offensive line, which is hoping to forge a new identity.

In the past, the Hokies' offensive line has been a source of concern; it helped to allowed a combined 96 sacks in the past two seasons. But with several more athletic, veteran linemen returning -- and camaraderie that has been built, in part, through playing online video games together -- the some of the see their potential to help the Hokies' offense grow.

"Everybody thinks we're sorry, that we're not worth nothing," Jaymes Brooks, the right guard, said of his fellow offensive linemen. "We're just trying to change that."
