Beamer: Tyrod Taylor to start

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Well, Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer accidentally slipped on his Hokie Hotline radio show and said that Tyrod Taylor will start on Saturday against Virginia. I didn't hear it, but a school spokesman confirmed it, and Beamer did too, at his weekly press conference today.

Beamer can and will start whomever he pleases, but I would think that's a pretty big punch in the gut to Sean Glennon on senior night. With the offense struggling under both of them, it would hardly seem to be that damaging to give Glennon the courtesy of the start in his last game in Lane Stadium.
