    Well today is day folks!! Big 12 Media Day!! With 12 teams!! Now you thinking to yourself when did Big 12 get two more teams. After last year the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets have left the ACC and have joined the Big 12 conference. With a new conference comes new challenges for them and the existing members of the BIG 12. Georgia Tech is one the few teams in the nation that run the triple option and teams now have to prepare for that. Virginia Tech comes in with one the best defenses and they are the defending National Champions. With a conference comes new offenses such as Texas balanced attack and Oklahoma's no huddle attack. Please feel free the ask questions and have a great day.

    The Hokies are the defending champions and have one of the best defenses in the country. However, they struggled last year offensively, and this year's team possesses a less than stellar receiving corp. The cornerback position is also suspect, and with the pass heavy offenses that the Big 12 has, how do you see Va Tech performing this season?

    Offensively yes we did struggle for the better part of the year but during the second half of the year we improved alot. Logan Thomas started to complete passes and use his legs more. Also our running game came together in some of the biggest games of the year in the second half. We brought back our stable of backs and will continue to use the ground and pound to win games. We dont count on one wideout to do it all because a group can do more than 1. Yes, the Big 12 do have teams that have great passing games but they also have not seen a defense like ours. Yes we did lose one of our corners early to the draft but we have 3/4 of our secondary and 3/4 of our d-line coming back as well so the defense should peform very well.

    CJTHA1, what are some of the challenges you face with repeating for a national title, especially now that you are in a new conference. (also what time are we playing tomorrow?)

    Rekkapryde, how do you think the triple option will fair against the Big 12 defenses?
