Spring practice is a great time for college football fans. It gives them a small dose of football and even a game. Unfortunately, the game is an intra-squad scrimmage, but it gives fans an opportunity to see how players have progressed from one season to the next.
The Virginia Tech Hokies begin spring practice next Wednesday. The biggest storyline this spring will be if new offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler can take the Hokies' offense to another level.
Head coach Frank Beamer finally decided to make a change at the offensive coordinator position after another middling season and fan unrest. Hokie fans have long felt Beamer was too loyal to former coordinator Bryan Stinespring and it was holding the program back.
The defense has always been in good shape with longtime coordinator Bud Foster. The Hokies expect to have another outstanding defense in 2013.
How will the offense respond?
Here is a position-by-position preview for the Hokies as we get closer to the onset of spring practice.
