Hokie Matchup: vs. Furman

The Hokies took on a team from Greenville, N.C., last week, and this week they face Furman, from Greenville, S.C. (Yeah, I had never heard of them either.)

Coach Frank Beamer announced around noon Tuesday that the red shirt was being ripped from Tyrod Taylor to give the Hokies the extra boost needed on offense. This move was described as a move back to the two-quarterback system that failed in last year's Orange Bowl. Beamer also said the decision wasn't a reflection of Sean Glennon's performance against ECU. And if you believe that load of crap, I've got some beach front property back home in West Virginia to sell you. It's being billed as a duo-QB deal, but expect Taylor to be on the field more because he knows much better how to get the job done.

Will the Hokies prevail over Furman today at Lane Stadium? They'd better, or everyone will be left scratching their heads. The real test, though, will come next week against Georgia Tech in the Hokies' first ACC matchup.
