Well, it's one of the best.

Virginia Tech fans showed some concern in 2009 because the Hokies' defense had a slight "drop-off" -- it was in the top 12 instead of the top 10. Really, it's no wonder Virginia Tech fans are ready to tie Foster to his desk chair and keep him there forever.

Since Virginia Tech has been in the ACC, no other defense in the FBS has played better defense more consistently. Over the past six seasons -- a span of 80 games -- Virginia Tech has allowed its opponents an average of just 268.33 yards per game. Foster has played an integral role in the Hokies' 62-18 record, .775 winning percentage and three ACC titles.
