We just finished speaking with coaches and players after Friday night's closed scrimmage, the Hokies' last of the preseason.
We had another solid chat today that went for about an hour and a half. If you missed it, the replay is below. Just as a heads up, we'll move future chats back to 12:30 p.m. on Thursdays once the season gets underway next week.
As the words left his mouth, Virginia Tech running backs coach Shane Beamer knew the message board response would be predictable.
As usual, here is some video to cap off a day's worth of interviews.
