Updates on Virginia Tech's spring football

Happy Monday morning, everybody. Here's some reading to recap the weekend that was.

Virginia Tech held a spring football scrimmage on Saturday as each Hokies' kicker tried to establish himself as the top guy. Wind stymied their efforts, as Coach Frank Beamer still does not know who will win the job.

Also, quarterback Tyrod Taylor was sharp, the secondary performed well and linebacker Bruce Taylor continued his solid play this spring. Read more on that here.

Away from the football field, there was news. Two of Virginia Tech's assistant basketball coaches interviewed for head coaching jobs elsewhere. If both were to leave, the Hokies would have lost all three of their assistants, but as a commenter on that article noted, it speaks highly of what Virginia Tech has done recently.

And finally, the No. 20 Hokies baseball team beat No. 1 Virginia on Sunday the final game of a three-game set. The Hokies dropped the first two games of the weekend series.

VT will have their hands full with BSU. The Broncos have a string of undefeated seasons that include humiliating beatings over Oregon, Oregon State, TCU and Oklahoma in recent years. Boise may have the best coached team in college FB. They play smart and very physical and have both outstanding offense and defense. They have the most accurate passer in college FB and tens of thousands on rabid fans who follow them everywhere and are LOUD. My advice to VT is to get ready and prepare like never before. You can be sure BSU will have every VT play over the last 4 years statistically analyzed in a spreadsheet and have prepared a whole bunch of plays specifically to use against VT. BSU also has more trick plays than a Las Vegas hooker. If VT hopes to win, they will need to bring their "A" game. One more thing, they need to study the one and only team that has BSU's number, at least on offense. There is only one team that has managed to consistently score big against BSU. In fact, one team has racked up 135 points against the might Broncos in just their last three games. That same team took Boise to a 4 OT thriller in '07 only to lose 69-67. That same team dominated the second half of their game against the Broncos in '08 outscoring them 31-17 only to lose by 7. Finally in '09, that same team outscored BSU from the second quarter on and still managed to lose. Who is it that can score, seemingly at will against Boise State and run up 135 points and yet still lose 3 close games? There is only one team that has done that, the Nevada Wolfpack and their # 1 in the nation rushing offense lead by the most overlooked QB in the country, Colin Kaepernick.
