The Hokies had their first open scrimmage on Saturday and for those of you that watched it, you know that one unit will grade out a lot better than the other. For those of you that didn’t see it, then let’s just say that the offense could use a little more work.
The only good takeaway from this first scrimmage is that the normally predictable offense of offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring has added the wrinkle of the pistol.
Other than that lone revelation, the defense dominated the game.
The defense ran circles around the offense, but it isn’t time to sound the alarms yet. Growing pains are to be expected after losing four starting offensive linemen, two starting receivers and an All-American running back. If this continues until the spring game, then it will be time to worry.
Being that this was the first chance the public was allowed to see the 2012 Virginia Tech football team, the following unit grades are taken from this scrimmage alone.
