Eleven Years Later, Some Similarities and Some Differences
by Jim Alderson, 8/19/04, 3:15 pm
Remember the last time Tech began play in a new conference? It was
1993, the first year the fledgling Big East Football Conference played a
round-robin schedule. The BEFC had been founded in time for the 1991 season, but
it took until Ď93 for all members to rearrange their schedules in order to
play each other.
Expectations were not high for Tech heading into their first season of BEFC
play. Some things havenít changed.

behind Bryan Randall, and that Cory Holt will hold down the #3 spot. But despite this depth chart move, the issue doesnít
appear to be completely settled, leaving the door open for Holt to continue to battle for the position.

by Jeff Ouellet, 8/17/04, 1:10 am
While offense sells tickets, the true tale of the tape in college football is on the defensive side of the ball.
Witness the 2003 Hokies, who had a standout rusher, a record-setting receiver, two solid quarterbacks and the best

Hokie Men's Soccer Looking to Reach New Heights in 2004
by Jay Jenkins, 8/15/04, 11:15 pm
As soon as the final word came down that Virginia Tech had been accepted into the Atlantic Coast
Conference, skeptics popped out of every nook and cranny saying that the Hokies would not perform up
to the leagueís standards in Olympic sports. They said they would not be able to compete with the
powerhouses of the league in baseball, golf, tennis or track & field. While that debate will
be settled on the playing field, the Virginia Tech menís soccer team hopes to erase most of
those doubts right off the bat - this fall.

by Will Stewart, TechSideline.com, 8/14/04, 11:50 pm
A 20-yard touchdown pass from Bryan Randall to tight end Jeff King was the biggest offensive
highlight on a day when the Hokies gave most of the snaps to backup QBs Cory Holt and Sean
