    Football took a back seat, way back, to far more important issues at Virginia Tech after the horrific April tragedy. This season, more than ever before, the football team will be a positive rallying point for the school and community. With one of the nation's best defenses, led by LB Vince Hall, it has a serious chance to make plenty of national noise.

    They had their chances. Four or five of them could’ve left old Blacksburg for the NFL and its riches.

    Xavier Adibi would have been a first-day pick. Branden Ore had potential to be taken in the top 100. Vince Hall. Eddie Royal. All of them could have declared and gone pro to make plenty of money. All of them leaving could have put the Hokies in a tough spot.

    But Adibi, a quick and mean inside linebacker, Ore, a prolific running back who scored 16 times, Hall, the team’s leading tackler, and Royal, a dangerous wideout/return man, have all returned for at least another season. And that means VT has the chance to build on a ten-win season that featured a squandered opportunity against Georgia in the Peach Bowl, and a defensive effort that keyed a six-game winning streak to close the season. During that stretch, Tech allowed just 29 points.

    Now, with 16 returning starters and scads of impressive reserves back in the fold, the Hokies should have the ACC’s best team, top defense and be a legitimate contender to play for the national title. As for the national scene, a Sept. 8 showdown at LSU will be an early indicator.

    Though Tech remains a highly successful program, having won ten or more games five of the past seven years, it’s been a while since it’s been considered a threat for the national championship. Even a loss in Baton Rouge wouldn’t kill title hopes, considering one of the year’s biggest non-conference games comes early in the season, but the program has to focus on the bigger picture. Obviously, that involves far more than just football after the tragedy and horror the school has had to deal with.

    Now Virginia Tech has to deal with all the attention of being a national story week-in-and-week-out for reasons other than just being a great football team. There’s a new kind of pressure the program will have to deal with, and that’s dealing with being the distraction and rallying point for a community desperate for something positive.

    On the field, the offense has to be consistent in ACC play -- it can’t suffer its annual bizarre in-game, nationally televised meltdown -- and has to play up to its capabilities. It’s ACC title or bust, with an eye on even bigger and better dreams. And bigger and better responsibilities.

    What to look for on offense: A big dose of Ore. He averaged 20 carries a game last year, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see that number swell several times throughout the year. That would help a Tech ground game that was erratic at best last year, mostly when Ore was banged up, and should help take the pressure off QBs Sean Glennon and Ike Whitaker. Whoever’s throwing (it'll be Glennon to start) gets back the top eight targets from last year, including Royal, David Clowney and Josh Morgan.

    What to look for on defense: Tech was amazing last year, allowing just 219.5 yards of total offense and 11 points a game, both best in the nation. With eight starters back, including Adibi, Hill, tackle Barry Booker and corner Brandon Flowers, the Hokies again will be stifling, and capable of making the offense’s job much easier. The overall formula will be the same, using the front seven to swarm to the ball and into the backfield, while hoping the secondary can use its speed to keep the big plays to a minimum.

    The team will be far better if … an offense which ranked 99th in the nation last year becomes more efficient, more balanced and more consistent. The Hokies don’t have to be Hawaii, but they can’t rely entirely on the defense. Glennon or Whitaker must get the ball downfield more often, and the ground game must produce more than 3.2 yards per carry.

    The Schedule: The first half of the year should be a walk in the park with the exception of that trip to LSU that'll be Tech's chance to make a national championship statement. Another visit to Death Valley, Clemson's version, will be the chance to make an ACC championship statement. After the layup at Duke it gets rough, playing Boston College, at Georgia Tech, Florida State and Miami before finishing up at Virginia.

    Best Offensive Player: Junior RB Branden Ore. Ore arrived in a big way last fall, parlaying a physical, no-nonsense running style into a 1,000-yard season with 16 touchdowns and a spot on the all-ACC first team. An old-school Hokie with a habit of moving the chains and wearing out defenses, the junior is also surprisingly valuable as a receiver on screens and swing passes.

    Best Defensive Player: Senior LB Vince Hall. Along with teammate Xavier Adibi, Hall helps give the Hokies the most physically imposing linebacking tandem in the nation. Tech’s leading tackler for the last two seasons is a versatile predator who fills the gaps quickly in run defense, covers well and at 6-0, 245 pounds, and can blow up opposing linemen.

    Key player to a successful season: Junior QB Sean Glennon or sophomore Ike Whitaker. Glennon appears to have the job after spring ball, but if he struggles, things could quickly change. The statistics say Glennon completed 56.3% of his throws, but he matched his 11 touchdowns with 11 picks and never threw the ball downfield with any regularity. Granted, it was his first year under center, but he wasn’t a dynamic weapon by season’s end, although he had improved. Whitaker might turn out to be the better option, with far more ability and immeasurably more mobility.

    The season will be a success if ... the Hokies win the ACC title. That early date at LSU might be too much to overcome to play in the national championship game. The defense should be among the best in America, if not number one overall, and the offense should be a bit more consistent, no matter what the quarterback play is like. It’s time to win the conference and be off to the BCS. The team is too good for anything less.

    What you need to know: Can Tech win a national title with a mediocre offense? It was 99th in the nation in total offense, but it did a great job of taking advantage of all the breaks generated by the defense. Eight starters return, led by ACC Player of the Year candidate Branden Ore at running back, but he needs the line to be healthy for a full season, and better. The passing game has good pieces, but it has to be far more consistent considering there are four talented senior receivers returning. Quarterback Sean Glennon had a good off-season, and now it has to translate into better production.

    Returning Leaders
    Passing: Sean Glennon
    170-302, 2,191 yds, 11 TD, 11 INT
    Rushing: Branden Ore
    241 carries, 1,137 yds, 16 TD
    Receiving: Josh Morgan
    33 catches, 448 yds, 4 TD

    Star of the offense: Junior RB Branden Ore
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Junior QB Sean Glennon
    Unsung star on the rise: Sophomore OT Ed Wang
    Best pro prospect: Ore
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) Ore, 2) WR Eddie Royal, 3) OT Duane Brown
    Strength of the offense: Wide receiver experience, Ore
    Weakness of the offense: Veteran line depth, proven passing game production

    Quarterbacks

    Projected Starter: There was expected to be a big quarterback battle after junior Sean Glennon had a bad year completing 56% of his passes for 2,191 yards and 11 touchdowns with 11 interceptions. Problems on the line didn't help out, but he struggled mightily with his consistency, closing out with an awful 94-yard, three interception performance against Georgia. He worked hard, was much sharper and much smoother this spring, and now he appears to be a leader for the offense, rather than just being along for the ride. At 6-4 and 221 pounds, he has good size and a little bit of mobility, but he's not a runner.

    Projected Top Reserves: While Glennon appears to have taken the number one job by the horns, sophomore Ike Whitaker isn't far behind. Back after getting treated for an alcohol abuse problem, he'll make things very interesting if he keeps progressing in practices. At 6-4 and 204 pounds, he has great size, a fantastic arm, and the speed and athleticism to become a dangerous all-around star.

    The third man in the mix is junior Cory Holt, a good-sized reserve with good mobility and a huge arm. What he hasn't been is consistent when given the chance. He has the measurables, and he's been around to system for a few years, and now he has to provide more of a push for the backup job.

    On the way is Tyrod Taylor, the team's top recruit when phenomenal speed and a decent, accurate arm. He's not huge at only 6-1 and 185 pounds, but his athleticism makes up for it. If he sees the field and burns his redshirt season, that'll likely mean something disastrous has happened to the season.

    Watch Out For ... Glennon to be far better. He might not make the major step up like, say, Bryan Randall did a few years ago, but he showed this spring that he'll be more accurate, and will do a better job of utilizing his talented receiving corps.
    Strength: The backups. Glennon might be the starter for the next two years, but there will be a sizeable portion of Hokie fans who'll be very, very curious to see what Whitaker can do. Glennon will be good; Whitaker might be special.
    Weakness: Glennon's running. The Hokie offense likes to have a quick, mobile quarterback who can take off at any time. That's not Glennon. If he's not accurate, with a completion percentage around 65%, his "game management" skills don't always make up for the other problems.
    Outlook: This could get interesting. Either Glennon will be better, and the offense will benefit, or Glennon will struggle, and there will be a quarterback controversy. While Glennon will be better than he was last year, the moment he has a bad stretch, or loses a game, there might be a call to get Whitaker in.
    Rating: 7

    Running Backs

    Projected Starters: It'll be Branden Ore, Branden Ore, and a dose of Branden Ore thrown in. The junior was the entire offense at times last season highlighted by a two-game stretch against Southern Miss and Clemson with 410 yards and four touchdowns. With good power in a 5-11 and 202-pound body, he's mostly a quick back who makes things happen inside and out. After issues earlier in his career, he's matured off the field, and can be counted on time and again on in coming off a 1,137-yard, 16 touchdown season. He can also catch a little bit.

    Senior Carlton Weatherford is a former walk-on who's carved out a role for himself as a blocker and a high-energy spark-plug for the ground game. After bulking up to 230 pounds over the last few years, he should do even more to pave the way for Ore, and he should be used a big more as a receiver.

    Projected Top Reserves: With George Bell transferring to D-II Catawba College, sophomore Kenny Lewis, Jr. will play an even bigger role after finishing second on the team with 215 yards and two touchdowns. A 5-9, 195-pound speed back who spent most of last season getting his feet wet again after spending two years in the Cincinnati Reds farm system, he's a mature 24-year-old true sophomore who should be able to handle himself well as a starter if something happens to Ore, like he did late last year.

    On the way is super-recruit Darren Evans, a 6-1, 204-pound speed back out of Indianapolis who rushed for 7,220 yards and 127 career touchdowns, leading his team to four Class 5A state championships. He scored 61 times as a senior. 61. He has it all, and he might become a key backup early on.

    Weatherford might be the starting fullback, but it might be just a question of time before sophomore Kenny Jefferson takes over. He's only 5-9 and 222 pounds, but he's a devastating blocker who can run a little bit.

    Watch Out For ... Lewis to get a lot more work. The passing game will be better, but the Tech offense will still revolve around Ore. He has to be fresh for the big games, meaning the backups need to get 10-15 touches a game. At the moment, that backup is Lewis.
    Strength: Ore. When he's on, he's a next-level back who can carry the entire attack and force defenses to focus solely on him. Everyone will go into every game focusing on stopping Ore first, but he still can produce when he's a marked man ... most of the time.
    Weakness: Backups. Evans or Jahre Cheeseman had better be ready to roll if called on. George Bell might have been a major disappointment considering his prep hype (injuries had a lot to do with that), but he was still a decent insurance policy.
    Outlook: Can Ore stay in one piece? He got a lot of carries over the first ten games of last year and suffered an ankle injury. As long as he's right, the running game will be effective. If he's dinged up, there will be big problems. Even with Ore's big year, the Tech ground attack was still 90th in the nation. That'll change with the expected improvement on the line.
    Rating: 7.5

    Receivers

    Projected Starters: The corps might lose leading receiver David Clowney, but it gets back the team's yardage leader, senior flanker Eddie Royal with 31 catches for 497 yards and three touchdowns. One problem; he had seven of those catches and 102 yards in one game (the loss to Georgia Tech). Unlike the rest of the main receivers, he's not all that huge at 5-10 and 181 yards, but he makes up for it with his speed and quickness. Shackled a bit by the passing game over the last few years, he's a home run hitter who mostly slaps long singles and a few doubles.

    Senior Justin Harper isn't always the most productive split end, but with his 6-4, 204-pound size, good deep speed, and the potential to be far more productive than he's been over his career, he's too enticing not to get on the field. He has to be far more consistent and use his advantages to create more mismatches after catching just 21 passes for 324 yards and a score last season.

    The tight ends will likely be more involved in the passing game this year after rarely getting anything their way. 6-3, 281-pound sophomore Greg Boone is more like a smaller third tackle. He also catches like one. He has the athleticism to do far more, but first, he has to improve his concentration when the ball comes his way with too many drops and only five catches for 68 yards and a score.

    Projected Top Reserves: Harper might be listed as the starter going into the fall, but that'll probably change, 6-1, 219-pound senior Josh Morgan started most of the time at split end last season making 33 catches for 448 yards and a team-leading four touchdowns, and now he needs to do more. With his size and next-level potential, he could be something special if he can put together all his talents and be the type of number one overall receiver who most secondaries have to worry about

    2007 Virginia Tech Preview - Defense

    What you need to know: For two years in a row, Tech has led the nation in total defense, and last season, was number one in scoring defense allowing 11 points per game. There's no reason the D can't be even better with eight starters returning led by the 1-2 linebacking punch of Vince Hall and Xavier Adibi. Corner Brandon Flowers is emerging as one of the best in the nation, "Macho" Harris is a good defender on the other side, and the line is loaded with size, quickness, depth and experience. As good as things were, and will be, it's not like the D played a who's who of offensive machines, so the overall numbers might be a tad bit overrated, but make no mistake about it; this is a special defense.

    Returning Leaders
    Tackles: Vince Hall, 128
    Sacks: Chris Ellis, 4.5
    Interceptions: Victor Harris, 4

    Star of the defense: Senior LB Vince Hall
    Player that has to step up and become a star: Sophomore S Kam Chancellor
    Unsung star on the rise: Sophomore DE Nekos Brown
    Best pro prospect: Junior CB Brandon Flowres
    Top three all-star candidates: 1) Hall, 2) LB Xavier Adibi, 3) CB Brandon Flowers
    Strength of the defense: Everything
    Weakness of the defense: Proven linebacker depth

    Defensive Line

    Projected Starters: Three starters return to the great Tech defensive line led by senior tackles Carlton Powell and Barry Booker, but they'll be part of a four-man rotation. The 6-4, 280-pound Booker isn't huge, but he's the team's most athletic interior pass rusher. Along with 1.5 sacks, 12 quarterback hurries and seven tackles for loss, he grew to be tough against the run with 52 stops. He's gotten so much stronger over the past two years that he can be used as a regular, every-down tackle if needed.

    The 6-2, 294-pound Powell got over the ankle injury that limited him a few years ago to have a nice 38-tackle, 2.5 sack, 6.5 tackle for loss season. While he's not as athletic as Booker, he's active with a non-stop motor that makes up for a lack of pure pass rushing ability.

    Also returning is the team's leading sacker, senior Chris Ellis, at one end after making 4.5 sacks, 38 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, and 16 quarterback hurries. At 6-5 and 260 pounds, he's big enough to hold his own against the run, while also having the raw speed and quickness to blast off into the backfield when the ball is snapped. He has to come back from off-season shoulder surgery, but he's expected to be fine at the start of fall practice. As good as he's been, he could be a lot better; he has the measurables to be more dominant.

    On the other side, it'll be 6-2, 260-pound junior Orion Martin taking over the vacant starting role left by Noland Burchette. Martin, a former walk-on, has plenty of experience in the rotation making 29 tackles and 12 quarterback hurries last year. While he's not Burchette, he should have a big statistical year if Ellis performs as expected and takes all the heat away.

    Projected Top Reserves: Battling with Martin for the open spot will be sophomore Demtrius Taylor, a 6-0, 233-pound speed rusher who'll move over from linebacker. He's hardly an every-down end, and he still has to learn the position, but he's quick and should carve out a niche for himself.

    Playing behind Ellis will be 6-2, 240-pound sophomore Nekos Brown, who'll also push for the open starting spot. He had a nice first season as a reserve with 29 tackles and 12 quarterback hurries, and now the former linebacker should blow up with a little more time. Always moving, he makes plays with good hustle.

    Booker and Powell might be good starters, but senior Kory Robertson and sophomore Cordarrow Thompson can be considered No. 1A on the depth chart. The 6-2, 335-pound Robertson has first round draft pick size, quickness and potential, but hasn't come close to putting it all together, lacking the motor and the drive to dominate. Despite being a regular, he only made 16 tackles, one sack and two tackles for loss. He's far too good to be so average. If the light finally goes on, he'll be dominant.

    The 334-pound Thompson provides more bulk in the rotation behind Booker. While he's a run-stuffer with his size, he's quick enough to be a regular in the backfield with two sacks, three tackles for loss, and 14 tackles in a limited role last year. He'll be a far bigger contributor this year.

    Watch Out For ... more plays in the backfield. As good as the Tech line was last season, it didn't crank out enough tackles for loss. There's too much quickness and talent at all four spots to not do more.
    Strength: Athleticism. This isn't a small line, considering the top two backup tackles average around 335 pounds each, and everyone can move. With a few exceptions, the line is full of high-motor playmakers who swarm to the ball.
    Weakness: Young tackles. Thompson will be a starter next year, but there needs to be time carved out to find a few tackles for 2008. Considering Tech likes to use a rotation of several players, several new stars have to be found for when Booker, Powell and Robertson are gone.
    Outlook: There might not be any sure-thing all-stars on the line, outside of, possibly, Ellis and Robertson, if he plays up to his potential. Even so, this will be among the ACC's most productive lines, with good pass rushing from all four spots, and good drive and motors from most to make up for any mistakes. This is an active group that'll do what's needed to allow the stellar linebacking corps to do their thing.
    Rating: 8.5

    Linebackers

    Projected Starters: There isn't a better returning linebacking duo in America than senior inside defenders Vince Hall and Xavier Adibi. The 6-0, 240-pound Hall, who plays in the middle, led the ACC in tackles last year with 129, and has 241 over the last two years, while also showing off impeccable timing when it came to get into the backfield making two sacks, eight quarterback hurries and 10.5 tackles for loss. Even though he didn't do too much against the pass last season, he's shown good quickness and instincts in pass coverage throughout his career. With his big-hitting style and skills, he'll make several All-America teams.

    Hall will get most of the headlines, but Adibi isn't far behind when it comes to talent and production on the strongside. While not huge at 6-2 and 226 pounds, he's all over the field in pass coverage with nine big plays against the pass, three interception, three sacks, 6.5 tackles for loss, and 82 tackles. His game is all about speed, and while he'll get pushed around by more physical blockers, he's unstoppable in space.

    The one question mark is at weakside linebacker after losing Brenden Hill, who made 52 tackles and had a great year in pass coverage. To start out, 6-2, 226-pound senior Corey Gordon will get the job after making seven tackles as a reserve. A lack of overall playing time is the main issue; he needs more reps and more work to figure out what he's doing. Hall and Adibi will take care of just about everything, so Gordon simply has to make the plays that come his way.

    Projected Top Reserves: Gordon has the edge in the battle for the weakside job, but sophomore Cam Martin, a safety playing linebacker, will see plenty of action. Only 6-1 and 207 pounds, Martin comes over from free safety where he'll try to shake the injury bug and be a factor. With good speed and toughness for his size, he should be decent against the run, but his strength will be in pass protection.

    Backing up Hall in the middle will be junior Brett Warren, who's back after suffering an injured foot and missing nine games last year. While he only played in four games, he made ten tackles and showed he could grow into a steady reserve. He's a tough 6-0 and 227 pounds.

    Behind Adibi is 5-10, 216-pound junior Purnell Sturdivant, a promising prospect a few years ago who hasn't been able to make much of an impact. Mostly a special teamer, he made ten tackles last season but has the speed and athleticism to do far more.

    Watch Out For ... Hall to be a Butkus Award finalist. It was almost criminal how failed to get much in the way of All-America recognition (by everyone but CFN), but that won't be a problem this year.
    Strength: Hall and Adibi. With two superstars like Tech has, everything else falls into place. You could play weakside linebacker and come up with a big season with these two along side.
    Weakness: Size. Speed and athleticism makes up for a general lack of bulk, but while Hall is a tough 240 pounds, there isn't much in the way of sheer size. Tech gets smaller when it brings in the backup.
    Outlook: The linebacking corps is more than just Hall and Adibi, but it's the All-America duo that makes it special. They must stay healthy. Gordon appears ready to shine in a starting role, even though he hasn't done much of anything over the course of his career, while Martin, Warren and Sturdivant form a small, but promising backup trio.
    Rating: 9

    Defensive Backs

    Projected Starters: There's been some sensational corners at Virginia Tech over the years, but 5-10, 190-pound junior Brandon Flowers could be the best of the bunch. A good tackler with 51 stops last season, he was a rock when the ball was in the air with three interceptions and 18 broken up passes. While he doesn't have the raw speed of DeAngelo Hall, and he's not as big and physical as Jimmy Williams, he has the potential to be a first round draft pick and grow into a truly special corner if he keeps working.

    On the other side will once again be junior "Macho" Harris, who picked off four passes and showed flashes of brilliance. What he hasn't been is consistent, and he isn't anywhere near the same league as Flowers when it comes to coverage, but he's a phenomenal athlete with 6-0 and 200-pound size. If he can bring his A game every game, he could grow into an all-star.
