We are all aware that Tyrod's personal best is 1,036 passing yards so far at VT, right?
I picked 2,000 yards (instead of a higher, more impressive mark) for a couple of reasons. First, Tyrod has only managed to get about halfway there to this point. Second, even if our receivers improve exponentially this season, as some predict they will, our offensive scheme simply does not lend itself to Big XII-esque passing numbers. We're a run first offense, and with Darren Evans, Ryan Williams, and Tyrod Taylor in the backfield, why not run first? We might conceivably not see another 3,000 yard passer at VT in the Beamer era.
Hope springs eternal in Hokie Nation, apparently, with 60% of respondents thinking T-Mobile can double-up his previous best and break the bimillenial mark.
I will say this: if Tyrod can manage to fling it for a couple thousand yards and a dozen or so touchdowns without a reduction in output from what should be the best backfield in the ACC then our offense might actually be fun to watch this season.
Thanks to all who voted. We're sort of switching gears with this week's poll question, so please don't forget to vote!
