The ACC Kickoff (aka media days) is fast approaching. I’ll be using the blog to count down to what we media members consider the unofficial start of the football season. This isn’t a list of the 25 best players on Virginia Tech’s roster. It’s a list of 25 things/people that will determine whether the Hokies’ 2012 season is a success or not. That includes players and coaches from both Virginia Tech and, occasionally, a few of its opponents.
OK, so summer just started. But before you know it, instead of firing up the grill in your backyard on a warm July day, you’ll soon be packing up your tailgate gear and bringing it to the parking lots around Doak Campbell Stadium in anticipation of the only thing that matters in Tallahassee: football.
