SHUTOUT

I didn't think we'd win this game.

A lot of other Hokies didn't think we'd win this game, but, you know what?

Everybody in unison, "What Joe?"

We won the game.

Do you know what else? Something else magnificent that happened today?

Everybody in unison, "What Joe?"

BC didn't score a point against us.

So you know what? What we didn't hear today this afternoon?

Everybody in unison, "What Joe?"

Because Neil Diamond should never be put on the back burner. Just look at him, weaving, shaking and grooving his shoulders and buttocks in a fashion pleasing to the women in the audience. Throughout the video he's making an argument that every piece of fabric on my and your body should be covered in denim and studded in rhinestones.

Here are some thoughts on the game, leave yours below.

  • Tyrod was 16/21 for 237 yards, but it felt like he played much worse. He's doing an excellent job of buying more time in the pocket, but then he's squandering his earnings. There were a handful of plays when he had a lane to run, but he was indecisive and he dragged out the play too far, it then ended up in a loss of yards or an incomplete pass.
  • Foster's second half adjustments were the difference again.
  • There were too many penalties.
  • Wilson, Evans and the offensive line were out of sync all afternoon.
  • Slowly but surely GW is starting to come around, in Foster we trust.
  • They're young, but I trust this secondary more than any, ever.
  • Hazley was butter, but we need to convert a short field for six and stop settling for three.
  • Everyone knows the end around to Wilson is coming.
  • The read option out of the gun had been working. It's a shame we don't run it more.
  • That was a big effing win.

TT is still not very accurate passing the ball

Several attempts were off the mark. One where it looked like he was trying to hit an open Danny Coale in back of the end zone but almost had it picked, throwing it at least 8 yards short. If he threw it high it was 6 points.
I looked at highlights from previous games including BSU and saw the same thing. Receviers are doing a good job when the ball is close but too often have to make big adjustments to make the catch. The throw-catch game just doesn't look smooth compared with other good passing teams. Maybe that is why teams still play us for the run and aren't too concerned with us passing. Late last year that all changed when TT started catching fire and the run game improved along with it. I think we will continue to improve but would like to see it now.
