PREVIEW: Beamer, Hokies looking to rebound after last season


BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- Frank Beamer and Virginia Tech hope the nightmare that was last season was an aberration.

The Hokies finished 7-6, barely qualifying for a bowl game, and saw their nation-best string of 10-win seasons end at eight.

Beamer says his team learned about being ready to play last season, and he is counting on his 27th edition of the Hokies to be better.

There's new help on the scene -- offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler and two new assistants -- and holdover players that give Beamer hope.

Quarterback Logan Thomas seems to have flourished under Loeffler's guidance, and Bud Foster's defense looks stout.

The Hokies say they are on the right road, and they will have to be right away. They open against No. 1 Alabama on Aug. 31.
