The official countdown to the beginning of the 2013 season began Monday for the Virginia Tech Hokies. The Hokies opened fall practice only 26 days shy of their season opener against two-time defending national champion Alabama.
There are many storylines to watch throughout the next month. New offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler and his installation of a new offense will get the most attention.
Can new offensive line coach Jeff Grimes find the right combination of linemen in time for the Alabama game?
Which, if any, true freshman will make an impact this season?
These are a few of the questions we will review each week, but before we get to that, we must review some newsworthy items pertaining to the Hokies this week.
