Best Hokie Football Moment

Well, we've already dwelled over past heart-breakers, so what is your fondest memory of Tech Football?

Mine would be the Miami Home game, Fall 2009. There was a heavy rain all day long, but we came to play! Rookie QB Jacory Harris and the U were getting all the hype, ESPN saying "They Were Back." Bud Foster posted on all his defenders' lockers comparing VT's stats to other defenders, to get them pumped up. It worked. In a complete rout, the Hokie offense, defense, and special teams all clicked and punished Miami all game long. RMFW rushed for two TDs (and 150-yards total). And who could Matt Reidy's short TD-return off a blocked punt?

That game killed my first iPhone (now I use the unbreakable Motorola droids), but it was totally worth it! Jacory Harris would never get a win against us, and Randy Shannon only beat us once in his short time as Thug U's HC.

Sure the 2009 season brought us plenty of heartbreaks, but I will remember the best moments since it was my final season as an undergrad.

I put the BC loss of 2007 as my least favorite moment, so getting revenge in the conference title game might have been the sweetest. Getting to beat the crap out of Matt Ryan was some great revenge.

Oh, and this one even though I was very young I still remember it:

Rip his freaking head off!

I was on a road trip during this game. My dad and I almost wrecked the truck when we made that field goal!

this is the game that really hooked me on vt football. i was living in bburg and rooted for tech but after that game i was in.

#ALLMAROONEVERYTHING

My roommate cried after Graham hit that field goal.

That was the moment we knew we were going to the National Championship game. The rest was a formality.

I was there and I was 12 years old. After Shane made the FG some guy picked me up that was behind me and started swinging me around. It was great. Undoubtedly the best moment I've wittnessed in VT football.

That was amazing

What a great finish. Anytime WV can go down and cry is good to me.

This would rank second for me right after Shane's FG in Morgantown. I remember jumping out of my seat after I noticed Coale was wide open and getting cheese on my leg from my nachos - great moment in Lane.

#SamRogers4Heisman

Two come to mind

1. Shayne Graham's kick to beat WVU in 1999
2. The realization midway through the second quarter of the BC game in 1999 that we were looking at the NCG...pure bliss.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

Rushing the field after the 99 BC game after the undefeated season was one of my first and best VT memories. Being so close to the coaches and players that had just put VT on the map was incredible, even if sitting on the old wooden bleachers wasn't.

Oh, and that game gave us this image too:

My First and Favorite Hokie game

My 11 year old ass may have gotten splinters from the south endzone bleachers but from that day on I knew I was going to be a Hokie.

and here

I believe this was everybody Hokie's background at some point.

BC '99

This one gets my vote. The most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. I wonder if one of the goal posts is still in the duck pond.

Go Hokies!

Isn't one of them in Big Al's?

2009

What made this game so great was that it was a blowout after having the final drive win the week before against Nebraska.
I remember seeing Danny Coale down the sideline, pointing and trying to utter why hasn't he thrown it yet! For the Miami game, I just remember being soaked, Jacory Harris getting sacked a bunch of times and not having a voice for a couple days.

How could you forget that awesome blocked punt!?!?!

The last true beamerball moment IMO.

Beamerball....

I miss beamerball so much. Those were great days

YES

The rain game, so good. I remember talking to Miami fans on the way in about how it was gonna be close.

There is a chance you can see me rushing the field at the end of this clip.

Every single time...

Every single time we beat UVA. Especially after 'someone' defaced (I would argue upgraded) their field with spray paint.

???

Wasn't the year that their field got painted the last time we LOST to UVA?

In 2004 my freshman year when we played WVU at home. I remember all their fans (WVU) getting off 5-6 buses (must have been a couple thousand of them) in front of Cassell and chanting F the Hokies and talking non stop trash on the way into the stadium. At the time i believe they were ranked 5 or 6? And we were unranked.

After a blocked field goal for a TD and some nice defensive stands we pulled it out. Everyone in the north endzone charged the field and made a b-line straight across the field to the visiting section in the south endzone to chant Lets Go Hokies. WVU fans started throwing anything they could on the field at the Hokie fans gathered in front of them.

That was my favorite moment besides Tyrod vs Nebraska, to stick it to those bastages from WVU

@VTimHokie85

Great one. That was my sophomore year. The previous year we had lost in Morgantown, and I remember some especially questionable officiating in that one. To beat them at home was sweet. The best part of the '04 WVU game (aside from rushing the field itself) was the fact that the North Endzone bleachers were literally creaking for the better part of the game because the majority of us kept pounding on them as hard as we could anytime WVU had the ball.

Fun fact - my profile pic is from earlier that same day. For the College of Science Homecoming, we did a chemistry demo and got the Bird to hold up one of our demonstrations. We blew stuff up, lit stuff on fire, made some slime for some kids, and beat the couch burners - great day!

Mom was in the bathroom

when we blocked the field goal. We still haven't let her live it down.

I had to go and find the video for this to start my day off right. Then I watched it a few more times.

I remember the complete chaos in the North at that point. It was awesome.

Try living in WV and dealing with their bullshit everyday. I love bringing up how The Black Diamond Trophy is OURS.

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

Druckenmiller to Holmes

Also, Miami 2003. The 2003 team was generally loathesome, but they sure got this game right.

I was in the stands for the 03 Miami game. That was the best game I ever attended.

03 Miami

The stadium was just nuts for this game. We blew them out. And this happened:

I would say

Beating Tennessee in the 2009 Chick-Fil-A bowl. That might not be a big win for anyone else, but to me it was. I live in Bristol TN/VA so I live in the mix of the Virginia Tech and Tennessee rivalry everyday. Tennessee fans are worse than UVA fans to me and I can barely stand them. They are so annoying. I was so thrilled to watch their hearts break on Facebook during the game. And when I returned home. 37-14 baby.

"Tyrod, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has a man open, CAUUUGHT! Danny Coale, all the way!"

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever the hell is playing Tennessee.

Living on the TN/VA state line and am way too excited for 2016.

Oh. My. God. Yes. My sister

Oh. My. God. Yes.

My sister is a Vol so my whole family went down to the game. She was being such a bitch when our first drive didn't go anywhere, and totally flipped when the refs (rightfully) put 2 seconds back on the clock at the end of the first half.

She was such a harridan throughout the entire game that we forced her to stick around for the trophy ceremony. Victory has never been so sweet.

My husband and I repeatedly used the phrase "Thirty seven-fourteened" after that game...

2004...the rollercoaster season.

2004 was definitely up and down and I was fortunate enough to attend most of it. Was there for the 'pass interference' call against USC. Was there for the missed FG against NCSU. Was there for the WVU win and enjoyed the only time my feet were placed on Worsham field. Was there for our valiant, late, effort against Auburn in the Sugar Bowl.

But the best moment for me was one that I watched from Blacksburg as we traveled down to South Florida and beat #9 Miami to clinch our first ACC title. Friggin' sweet.

04 PI Call

Up until Danny Coale's catch, that PI call on Hyman was how I defined being screwed by a ref. I was in the second row, feet away from where Hyman "pushed off," and I can assure you, it was clean.

several

1. 04 Western Michigan: it was my first home game and I remember marching out on the field as a Cadet and just being a part of the atmosphere, really cool.
2. 05 West VA: They are nuts there! first road game, very hostile environment against a rival, walked away with a W, good stuff.
3. Nebraska at Lane, just because VT is usually on the other side of those types of win, so to pull a W on that was nice, plus it was an out of conference (As mentioned before.. are nebraska fans some of the nicest fans you have seen?)

Getting revenge on BC is also good, and any time beating UVA is good, although I think the 07 UVA game stands out to me as they were actually somewhat good that year.

Sugar Bowl vs Michigan

When Danny Coale caught the game-winning TD. If that wasn't a catch then I don't know what is.

Maybe once we land Aaron Moorehead, he can teach us what constitutes a TD catch in the Pac-12

2004

#12 Virginia Tech 16, #10/#9 Miami 10- I watched from the lounge in Pritchard on the old half broken tube tv with some HS friends as Royal broke a tackle on a dart from Randall for the game winning score. We went nuts in the lounge as Davis batted down the last passes to secure the win. Perhaps my fondest Freshman year memory was walking around campus afterwards, victory smoke in hand, listening to everyone in the Pritchard/New Res/O'Shag/Lee quad blasting Enter Sandman from their rooms celebrating the most improbable ACC Champion in quite sometime. I also remember watching some of the postgame celebration and seeing the lost look on Swofford's face.....loved it.

The WVU blocked kick was also the loudest I ever heard Lane and I think I went to nearly every home game (minus three) in my four years- including BC in 2007/2005, GT in 2005, and Maryland in 2004.

In person:2010 ACC

In person:

2010 ACC Championship game. We had nose bleed seats with Hokie fans beside us and FSU fans in front and behind us. They talked trash the whole game and finally gave up with about 5 minutes left in the game. Seeing Tyrod play one of his best games ever was great.

Not in person:

Probably watching the Miami game with a bunch of church buddies. Total beat down. Most gratifying game I've ever seen.

The 2011 UVA game was pretty awesome too. I'm pretty sure I talked trash on twitter for the next 24 hours on twitter.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

@VT_Warthog

2011 miami stands out to me. it was a great game but it was also just a great day to me. we grilled out, my brother (who likes miami) was in town, and we had some friends over. just one of those days when everything was just perfect. family, good friends, good grub, the hokies were playing, and the booze was flowing.

then this happened,

hokie magic, perfect day

Enter Sandman

I remember looking at one of my friends and we both had that face of, why the hell did they just play it again! Luckily it was one of the few times they played it near the end and it didn't result in a lose. Seen too many of those. It was pretty awesome watching LT3s touchdown from the North Endzone.

Following his lead^

In person: This is a tough one. I went to the Temple game in 2000. Saw Vick play. That was unforgettable. Game wasn't even close, but it was one of the times he jumped straight over a guy to score. Just watching him on the field was incredible. The last game I went to was UVA in 2010, however, my first time seeing us play the Hoos and of course a very satisfying experience. Some guys in my section were stomping on and pouring beer all over a Cavaliers hat and after the game at Hokie House everyone was in high spirits except for this one drunk Wahoo fan playing pool by himself. He looked so sad, and I was so delighted.

On TV/elsewhere: I thoroughly enjoyed BC round 2 in 07, as well as WVU 04, and a lot of others people have named. But I think my favorite was UVA in 2004. That was the year after they beat us and I was with relatives in Cville for Thanksgiving. Watched the first half with that long Pearman run and Jimmy Williams running him down from behind, then we left to go back to Blacksburg at halftime. We turned the radio on to the UVA guys (they were terrible) and as soon as we tuned in we hear "TOUCHDOWN VIRGINIA TOUCHDOWN WAHOOS." I'm a little ashamed to say we got so disgusted that we turned it off (couldn't find Roth) and drove the rest of the way without knowing what happened. We get down past Roanoke and turn it back on to find that Tech had not only won, but absolutely throttled their ass. 24-10. Beautiful. The Hoos did not beat us that day, nor have they since.

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

On TV- 1999 WVU. By the time that game ended I had about 10 people in my West AJ dorm huddled around my 13 inch TV, my parents called and I got calls, AIMs, ICQs (remember those?) from friends form home.

In person was 1999 Syracuse for mostly petty reasons. I was sitting section 17 not too far from a group of Syracuse fans that kept shouting "Overrated" from about an hour before kick-off until midway through the first quarter. Our section started shouting it back in the 4th quarter before they left.

These are the 2 games I was thinking about too.

I was a freshman in 99. We watched the WVU game at a friend's apartment off campus. I remember as soon as Shane Graham hit that field goal the entire town of Blacksburg erupted at once.

Syracuse was a night game at home, and it was COLD. We came out and dominated the entire game. 62-0.

2010 acc championship game

2010 acc championship game was incredible. was there with my dad got to see tyrod a last win as a hokie, a win and conference title ill always love it. my freshman year was 2004 when we beat wvu my first huge game as a hokie on the rain was amazing. but that 2010 acc title game with my dad in the freezing rain was incredible

tyrod did it mikey! tyrod did it!

1995 Sugar Bowl. My first Hokie game. My first bowl game. My first flight.

I was 5.

Hahaha, but seriously, we did beat Texas at that game. And that was fantastic. And I got some cool souvenirs from New Orleans, which I still have. We got stuck in the airport for two days on our way home, but other than that our trip was great.

1998 Music City Bowl was pretty great too. My little brother had just been born and we carted him and all the grandparents to the Opryland Hotel. We had a blast there. The game rocked, too: we #BEATBAMA.

Other games that were great:
Miracle in Morgantown, 1999
Beating Miami to win our first ACC Championship in our Inaugural ACC Season, 2004
Tennessee, Chick fil A Bowl 2009
38-0, 2011

Great ones I witnessed in Lane:
aTm and Miami, 2003
UVA, 2004 our first conference win against them in our first year in the ACC. And UVA was ranked. And it was the glorious beginning of #NINESTRAIGHT.
Nebraska, 2009
GT, 2012 first OT game in Lane Stadium ever. And we won. I just think it's cool to have seen that history. Who knew the season who take such a dive after that??

Beating Duke in 2004-05 in basketball was awesome.

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

and

in 2011! That's where my profile pic comes from, we rushed the court and a couple of us started hanging on the rim. I made the local paper!

How could I have forgotten about that one? That was amazing!

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

1. 1999 WVU- best finish to a game we have had
2. 1995 UVA- huge win, back when UVA was an actual contest
3. 2003 Miami- such potential that year, but all for not
4. 1995 Sugar Bowl vs Texas
5. 1993 Independence Bowl- love the end of the first half. Typical Beamerball

Best moment in person: Dyrell Roberts' 98-yd kick return vs Alabama. It got me so excited because it made us all believe that we had a chance to win the game

Best moment on TV: 2003 miami for so many reasons, but mainly the Terror Dome and #ALLMAROONEVERYTHING

#Whitness

and also at Clemson 2007. Overall the most exciting game I've ever watched.
DJ parker INT return TD
Eddie Royal punt return TD
Macho Harris Kick Return TD

IMO biggest display of beamerball ever

Tyrod's big breakout game in a hostile environment

#Whitness

I remember looking at my friend and saying "Pick 6 on this play" and sure enough DJ Parker takes one to the house. Those were the days when you could say stuff like that or call a blocked kick and wholeheartedly believed that it was going to happen. Doesn't seem that way anymore.

Rip his freaking head off!

zero defensive touchdowns in 2012. did we have any in 2011??

#Whitness

We did have a blocked punt for recovery for a touchdown, but that was againt Appalachian State.

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

We had a safety against FSU, that was the only defensive score this year.

Rip his freaking head off!

I can't believe no one has mentioned the 2008 UVA game! We beat UVA in heartbreaking fashion and we got into the ACC championship! I was in fifth grade at the time and I still remember when Purnell Sturdivant made that sack on Verica how loud Lane got! Maybe the loudest I've ever heard Lane and I've been going to almost all of the home games since 2004!

I love Virginia Tech, regardless of the outcome of every game.

The '99 WVU was such a significant game in my life (I was 10 years old) that I can't remember much of anything about any VT game beforehand. It's my #1.

#2 was probably the '09 Miami win. In addition to kicking ass and taking names, I will always fondly remember that the only ponchos Kroger had left were clear kids ones (and I'm a big dude, 5'10" 250) so the thing only went to about my waist...and all of the water drained direcly into my pockets, ruining my phone and wallet. Well worth it.

#3 was Nebraska. Just OMG. Right before the Danny Coale catch, some 40ish lady and 20ish dude got busted right outside the North End Zone for a drug deal. Not sure how, but I'm positive it was a sign.

#4 would be the 51-7 ass-whooping of Georgia Tech in 2005 (my first game in the North End Zone...my awesome big sister snuck me in). When I first heard Enter Sandman there I just about shat bricks.

1) The moment that launched the Virginia Tech program and probably saved Frank Beamer's job: the last two minutes of the 2nd quarter of 1993 Independence Bowl.

2) The Druckenmiller comeback in Charlottesville in 1995. Second best sports radio call in my lifetime behind "Matteau Matteau Stephane Matteau."

3) It may seem silly to you guys, but winning the ChikFilA Bowl against Tennessee was a huge win for all of us who grew up in the shadow of Rocky Top football on the Southwest Virginia frontier. Being there in person made it sweeter.

4) Beating FSU for the 2010 ACC title, and getting to be there with some of my best friends growing up.

5) Every time Brandon Flowers made a tackle, it was an event.

Games that I "attended"

To keep this short, I only included games that I attended. I use the terms "games" and "attended" loosely. You will see why.

In chronological order:

1999 vs. Miami: This was our first real test in the 99 championship run. I was in the old North Endzone (the rickety green ones) and they were shaking because it was over-capacity. Miami jumped out to a quick 10 point lead and I remember thinking that we had finally met our match. Slowly, Tech was able to gain momentum and eventually scored 43 unanswered points. In the 3rd quarter, we knocked Miami QB Kenny Kelly out of the game. I tried to shout "Oh my God, we killed Kenny!" - but my voice was gone by that point.

2000 vs. Georgia Tech: The game that never was, but it gave us this:

2002 vs. LSU: I couldn't get tickets to the game, but during halftime, we raided the student lots where the LSU fans had taken over. Got a decent haul of LSU flags and car magnets. Also we BEAT NICK SABAN.

2009 vs. Miami: Took my brother to his first college football game (graduated from GMU). We got hammered before the game and he ended up losing his ticket. We had to scalp another ticket and and then snuck him into our section, where we met the guy who found his ticket (I wasn't mad, it was our fault for losing it). Because of this, we missed the first touchdown and walked in just as Boykin was scoring the second. Even still, my brother said it was the greatest sporting event he had ever attended. We rushed the field afterwards.

2010 ACC Championship vs. FSU: This game made me hate Jimbo Fisher. The game was clearly over and he kept calling timeouts and running plays. Didn't matter, though.

*edited to correct dates.

99 Miami game

That's the team that had Clinton Portis and Ed Reed on it too.

99 vs Miami

I just watched that Miami game. I hadn't seen it since it first happened. it is crazy to watch that team. They were special. It just feels like our offense was so balanced and our defense and special teams were soooo good. I hope that we can get back to this quality one day. it was amazing. Plus it is so wild to hear so much VT love from the commentators. I hadn't heard that type of love in forever.

“I hope that they’re not going to have big eyes and pee down their legs so to speak,” -- Bud Foster

Love the comment

After the last TD, which was a fumble recovery in the end zone, the announcer said "They've already wasted the fireworks. They can't take the points off now." They weren't sure if the play would be called back since it was kicked forward into the end zone.

#Hokies

I really liked our comeback

I really liked our 4th quarter comeback win in 2004 on the road @ GT. I remembered i was sick in bed in the dorms with mono and still had enough energy to scream my head off with that comback B Randle had in him. Josh Hyman with that sweat diving catch in the endzone, and Eddie Royals huge TD.

Now that i think of it that whole 2004 season had alot of great memories...

@VTimHokie85

2007 Florida State game

This isn't my favorite moment, but it definitely sticks out thanks to the douche bag fsu fans in front of me that thought the game was over after we blew the 14 point lead, but we came back to win 41-20. I will never forget the 3rd and 31 play

#TouchdownTech

Logan Thomas in the background

That game was so frustrating, a classic bad offense type-of-day.

Then this play happened and all the anger was flushed out of my system in a nano-second, to be replaced with joy and hope. Great game.

'95 Miami Game and '99 WVU

I was a freshman for the '95 Miami game and it was sick. We tore down the goal posts and took them downtown and blocked off Main Street. There were people swinging on the stoplights in front of Arnolds at the time.

'99 WVU game because I locked myself in my appartment bedroom freaking out and then went ape shit when Vick ran up the sideline and then Graham nailed it.

One of my favorites as well...

Watched this one eating breakfast with my brother while deployed to Afghanistan. Good times.

2007 at Georgia Tech

The start of a major comeback from a minor setback. Hope for the rest of the season. Beating them after the loss the year before. Beating them in their own uniforms.

Great road trip with @hokie20. Met up with some friends prior to the game and drank my ass off. Met the Clubhouse Tailgate guys for the first time and haven't gone a VT game without tailgating with those guys since. Our seats for the game were awesome.

Just a lot of great memories from that trip.

A bullhorn, a bottle of whiskey and a dream.

this is bball but definitely worth a mention

i didnt even know this happened until watching vt sports today the other day. btw, can we get some hd cameras for vt sports today? it looks like absolute shit.

It's definitely the longest 2 point basket ever made.

Rip his freaking head off!

Apparently one by Marshall in the 80s beat Les Henson's.

Marshall's was 89' 10"
Henson's was 89' 3"

I have no idea how you could fit 7 more inches between Henson and the line, but that's why they didn't ask me to judge it.

Hadn't heard this about Marshall.

But we were watching this in Vawter hall when I was a sophmore. It was so weird....there was like 30 seconds of utter silence...then it just exploded in the halls. Totally wild.

The only way it could be a longer shot would be to move a bit more toward the corner of the court. Les was pretty close when he turned, but there might be a foot or two there.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

I have a few

1) Beating Cincinnati with a goal line stand in the Orange Bowl. Beating Brian Kelly was sweet.

2) Beating Tennessee and Lane Kiffin in the Chik-Fil-A Bowl. The look on Kiffin's face when the refs had to call back the UT when Tech called a timeout just prior to halftime. Also probably one of Stinespring rare games where he brilliantly called the plays. Ryan Williams was a beast that night and was completely unstoppable.

3) The Nebraska Comeback. Tyrod to Danny Coale! Then Tyrod's Happy Feet to Dryell Roberts to seal the win. Priceless when Bo Pelini chucked his headset behind him and one of the Nebraska players caught it.

4) The Final Drive. Logan Thomas quarterback sneak for the WIN! Alonzo Tweedy's tackle of Lamar Miller and the field rushing of the Tech's bench to seal the outcome! Boo-yah!

5) My first night game ever at Lane Stadium versus the Bumble Bees on Labor Day.

6) Destroying Miami on a rainy day and watching future NFL tight end, Jimmy Graham drop sure passes that could have gone for first downs, and seeing Randy Shannon's face becoming more pissed at that. That was after Bud ripped his defense for allowing Rex Burkhead to run wild the week before and posting the words on the lockers, "You have a responsibility to continue the tradition at Virginia Tech." Those players were mad and they were led by Jason Worldis.

How about Clemson getting schooled in Beamerball? Probably the last time we saw Tech dominating Clemson in all phases of the game.

I support Logan Thomas and make no apologies for it.
