Hokies' Holt Preparing Like a Starter
Our fearless Commonwealth college sports reporter Zach Berman was in Charlottesville yesterday (as he likely will be all week as Virginia gets ready to play host to Miami on Saturday), but the story in Blacksburg was all Cory Holt, the third-string quarterback who will start against Maryland next Thursday night if neither Tyrod Taylor nor Sean Glennon is sufficiently recovered from his ankle injury.
Holt is a fifth-year senior who appears who has been playing wide receiver since spring practice. He appears to know the offense well but obviously lacks significant game experience. Here are stories on him from the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the Virginian-Pilot, and the Daily Press.
On its face, it would certainly seem to be an advantage to face a team forced to play its third-string quarterback. But considering the Hokies weren't getting tremendous production out of their passing game before the injuries, is a fifth-year senior getting a chance just what they need to shake off the doldrums? Or do you think it will all be irrelevant because either Taylor or Glennon or both will be healthy enough to play Thursday regardless of what is said publicly in Blacksburg before the game?
