GRAPHIC=TECH Despite having over 100 players


at his disposal - Frank Beamer opened
up summer practice at Virginia Tech
this afternoon a little shorthanded.

The Hokies knew coming in that
they would have to plug the holes in
the defensive backfield created by the
departure of Jimmy Williams and Justin
Hamilton to the NFL.


GRAPHIC=ROLAND MINOR Then today they found out that


Roland Minor also is out for at least
six to eight weeks and most likely
longer.

The redshirt junior, who started
all but one game at cornerback last
season was involved in a car wreck
earlier this week in his hometown of
Washington, D.C.

Minor injured one of knees and
his wrist in the wreck and had surgery
this afternoon at Montgomery Regional
to repair the dislocated wrist.

Fortunately, he did damage his
knee bad enough to require surgery.

This Afternoon The Minor injury certainly isnt' :00 the worst thing Frank Beamer has had to
deal with as he begins his 20th season
at the helm of the Hokies.

Sean Glennon opened practice as
the number one quarterback, but that
could change by the time the season
opener rolls around as Cory Holt and

Ike Whitaker are anxious to state their
case.

The Hokies will practice again
tomorrow in helmets and short and go
into full pads for the first time next
Tuesday

The Hokies found out today that
they will start the season ranked 16th
in the brand USA Today coaches' poll
that was released this morning.

Oklahoma is the preseason number
one. West Virginia is 7th, Florida
State 10th and Miami 11th.

UVA's Opening Practice Groh has deemed the 2006 campaign :00 a "rebuilding year" on numerous
occasions.

One of the players UVA fans
didn't expect to have around this
season has been reinstated not only for
summer practice but for the entire
season.

Tony Franklin - a co-captain in
2005, was suspended for one game after
violating team rules last year and did
not play in the Music City Bowl after
his arrest for marijuana possession.
Al Groh says he's decided to give him a
second chance.

a season ago, so you might think the

wasn't exactly a good omen. A severe
thunderstorm and ensuing flash flood
that rolled into Knoxville just before
the start of practice and forced the
team to scramble inside.

a year ago, and 6 starters return on
each side of the ball.

66 players showed up on the
first day of workouts, and 21 of those
are seniors. That's 2 more than
Glenvar had last year.

Johnson hopes that experience
pays off in a big way in 2006.
