Issue #23 of the TSL Extra

The latest issue of the TSL Extra features an outstanding profile of offensive line recruit Tripp Carroll, plus articles pondering the past and the future of Virginia Tech football.

This month's lead article, "The Future is Now," takes a look at the surprising 4-0 Hokies and suggests that maybe it's time to stop being so surprised when Tech football does well.

In recruiting, we've got a great article about Tripp Carroll's decision to attend Virginia Tech that is written in his own words, plus a look at VT recruiting target Fontel Mines. We also bring you the third of our "ranking the recruits" series, where we take a look at the 1992 class that included Billy Conaty and Bryan Still.

New writer Rick Abraham ponders what a big-time Virginia Tech football has become, and we've got another interesting installment of "Inside TSL."

Here are the details on this month's articles:
