For his first start as Virginia Tech's quarterback, Michael Brewer was pleased with his performance but by no means satisfied.
BLACKSBURG — One productive game was all it took for Virginia Tech’s two talented freshman running backs to move to the top of the depth chart.

Football season is officially underway, with the Hokies' season opener in the books and No. 5 Ohio State up next on the schedule.
It was a decent season-opening win Saturday for the Hokies, who had plenty of offensive contributors in the 34-9 victory against William & Mary. That was the theme of my game story, which you can read here.
BLACKSBURG — Willie Byrn beamed as he rattled off the ways the Hokies’ offense has the potential to be better this year than last, the sheer number of young play-makers ready to contribute chief among them.
BLACKSBURG — Virginia Tech’s new offensive options have accounted for all of its scoring against William & Mary so far Saturday, with the Hokies taking a 17-6 lead into halftime at Lane Stadium.
Finally, the offseason is over. Virginia Tech hosts William & Mary today at 4 p.m. The game is on ESPNews. I'll be there covering it.
It's back. The weekly matchups post is in its rightful place here on Friday morning. My prediction will be at the end.
Virginia Tech's long list of nicked up players in training camp was limited to just a few when the Hokies put out their official injury report Thursday night.
We came, we chatted, we uttered dozens of profanities at our worthless office Internet connection and threatened multiple times to chuck our computer at the wall -- all in an hour and a half of fun/frustration.
Virginia Tech dropped the Frank Beamer extension news at 4 p.m., which made for a busy night. We'll cap things off with some video from coordinator interviews.
The Wednesday coordinator takeaways returns as a regular feature on the blog. But I'm paring it down to five total takeaways from interviews with Bud Foster and Scot Loeffler each week, just to ease my burden and prevent things from getting watered down.
Frank Beamer doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.
Give David Wang credit. For a guy with such an extensive injury history, he sure does have a good spirit about it.
The first Tuesday of the regular season is in the books. Here are some earlier posts today in case you missed them:
Marshawn Williams felt a little timid on his first two carries back in Virginia Tech’s scrimmage last Friday, somewhat to be expected after the freshman tailback was limited at practice for close to a month after hernia surgery.
With all the preseason debate about the Hokies' quarterbacks, tailbacks, receivers and offensive linemen, a position overlooked is the fullback.
Wide receiver Willie Byrn was redshirting back in 2010, so he, like many others in Blacksburg, assumed the Hokies' sluggishness against James Madison, a team from the Football Championship Subdivision, would fade over time.
The Hokies updated their depth chart Sunday, likely finalizing what will be the lineup when they take on William & Mary in the season opener Saturday at Lane Stadium at 4 p.m.
It's officially game week, at least in terms of how the Hokies do their preparation
Virginia Tech’s offseason of uncertainty came to an end Saturday when the Hokies named Texas Tech transfer Michael Brewer as the starting quarterback for the William & Mary opener Aug. 30.
The Hokies' last scrimmage of the preseason is in the books. We had plenty of coverage of it.
I wrote about freshman receiver Isaiah Ford's big night -- and big August, really -- for Saturday's paper. That story is up online right now.
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.
It was a full day of interviews with offensive coaches, with plenty of info at three big areas on that side of the ball.
Offensive players and coaches spoke to the media Wednesday before what will be just a regular practice this afternoon.
