A Look At Virginia Tech’s Prospects This Season

David Teel is one of the best ACC area writers. Now with the Richmond paper, Teel takes a good look at Virginia Tech here and sees a team that’s going to be good and one that is already confident.

And they have some real strengths. First, Keve Aluma is one of the ACC’s best big men, second, Mike Young has an experienced and deep team and third, the Hokies have Young, who has justified the high expectations his peers have for him (his fellow coaches think he’s superb).

Could Virginia Tech win the national championship?

Young is trying to calm that sort of talk down but as a coach you know he loves the confidence.
