2011 will mark a season of change for Virginia Tech football.
Adding a new quarterback, new defensive line, and new feature tailback all points to a severe learning curve, and everyone that I have talked to about next year seems extraordinarily nervous.
Yet, not many seniors left last year. Why should everyone be so nervous?
Well, while the core of the senior class was small, their on-and-off the field impact was bigger than anyone could ever imagine.
In 2010, after an 0-2 start, the seniors stood in front of their teammates and demanded that the season not fall any further. It was the seniors who led comeback wins against ECU, N.C. State and Georgia Tech and who played their hearts out in the Orange Bowl loss.
Ah, but fear not readers, there is no reason to panic and I'm here to tell you why.
