Va.Tech Leading Rusher Out For Season

I don’t care who it is, you hate to hear this. Virginia Tech announced today that Darren Evans, 2008 leading rusher and Orange Bowl MVP suffered a left torn ACL in practice today and will miss the upcoming 2009 season. You can read the full report on espn.com here.

An injury like this goes way beyond football and who you pull for. If you’ve ever been close to anyone who has suffered such a setback, you know the agony that ensues. I speak for Bama fans everywhere when I say we are pulling for him.

The up side for the Hokies is that they have a full month to get ready for the season without him, but what will that mean to their “perceived” already limited offensive attack for September 5th? Who lies in waiting to step in and take his place?
