No. 2: The Hokies' Plan B

Virginia Tech's plan was to redshirt quarterback Tyrod Taylor, the gifted sophomore from Hampton, and give the car keys to senior Sean Glennon. After a season-opening loss to East Carolina in which the offense sputtered, the Hokies junked the plan. Taylor wasn't a cure-all, not for an offense with green-as-grass receivers and an inconsistent running game. But his abilities helped Tech to its second consecutive ACC title and BCS bowl game, and he was named ACC championship game MVP.Dave Knachel/Virginia Tech, Daily Press
