ESPN Insider Travis Haney wrote about Virginia Tech's chances of winning the national title this year -- a scenario made possible thanks to a blossoming star at quarterback and one of the nation's toughest defenses.
Virginia Tech will have one of the best quarterbacks in the ACC in Logan Thomas, but the surrounding cast has questions to answer. Expectations will be high for Bud Foster's defense, but is Beamer Ball just a memory? The Hokies have plenty of strengths, but Haney also points out some weaknesses that they will have to overcome.
This Virginia Tech team has a striking resemblance to the ones in recent years: It has question marks, but it has enough talent to have a chance, both on the conference and national levels. Now, if it could just clear the mysterious hump that has sequestered it in those recent seasons.
