The Virginia Tech Hokies finished the 2012 season ranked No. 82 nationally in total offense. Their struggles on offense were the primary reason the Hokies had their worst record (7-6) since 1992.
With former offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring now reassigned as the tight ends coach, Hokie fans are excited about the change. First-year coach Scot Loeffler comes to Blacksburg after one disastrous season in charge of Auburn's offense.
Undoubtedly, Virginia Tech fans are eager to see how Loeffler will do. They have high expectations for senior quarterback Logan Thomas and hope he can resemble the 2011 version of himself.
If the Hokies are to contend for another ACC title in 2013, the offense will obviously have to step up. Bud Foster's defense returns nine starters and should be among the nation's best.
Here are five players Hokies fans look most forward to seeing in 2013.
