Mindset for bama

This is the mindset Beamer and Co. need to get into this offseason, matter of fact right the fuck now, before signing day. This is the attitude that we need to have around our campus and football team. Go forth and commit this act of badassery and become relavant, make other teams and conferences afraid to face us. We should do this wearing #ALLMAROONEVERYTHING!

They are not immortal

Man when he says that shit, you know hes fucking ready to roll. This is how I want us to practice, lift, eat in everything we do be ready to beat these jokers!

There are wolves and there are sheep, I am the sheep dog

I think VT's mindset should be on themselves

Here's the mindset: WE'RE GONNA WIN.

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


All I've heard the last few weeks is #BEATBAMA #BEATBAMA now everyone I see on the social media world is tucking their tail.


This kind of

dominating performance by Alabama is EXACTLY what we need. They'll be so high on victory they won't even know what smacked them in the face next August.

I hope McCarron isn't too attached to that chest tattoo... because Jack Tyler is going to knock it right off of him. CLOWNEY STYLE.

because lol

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

that is

Probably the funniest thing I've ever seen.

That is

awesome. And exactly what I want Jack Tyler to do to McCarron. That would be wonderful.


All he's going to hear leading up to that game is about how good Cooper is, I hope that really pumps him up to take it to 'em.

Rip his freaking head off!


Ex has been tweeting about him all night, so he's been watching him. Which is what I like to see.

Ex is the man.

What Exum didn't say

Is that he's working on his next rap video.

One Reason VT has a Fighting Chance

Alabama's offensive line was dominant tonight, but 3/5 of that line, and both TEs should be gone, losing considerable size and experience (current starters in bold):

71 Cyrus Kouandjio 6-6 311 So.
63 Kellen Williams 6-3 303 Jr.

65 Chance Warmack 6-3 320 Sr.
78 Chad Lindsay 6-2 290 So

75 Barrett Jones 6-5 302 Sr.
70 Ryan Kelly 6-5 288 Fr.

61 Anthony Steen 6-3 303 Jr.
77 Arie Kouandjio 6-5 310 So.

76 D.J. Fluker 6-6 335 Jr. (expected to leave for NFL)
79 Austin Shepherd 6-5 312 So

That's a loss of 67 lbs on that line. Granted, the underclassmen will probably get bigger and some players will get switched around, but it may be Alabama's greatest weakness in 2013. With VT's D-line peaking in 2013, this is the battle VT has to win to walk out of Atlanta with a win.

🦃 🦃 🦃

I think Alabama is going to be a high powered offense next year. McCarron is one of the better quarterbacks I've seen (despite his crying), so if our D-Line can win that battle and get some pressure on him we might be able to get the upset.

Rip his freaking head off!

More like Exum has to be able to handle Cooper and shut him down while Edwards, Tyler, and RVD shut down Lacy/Yeldon/Henry or whoever the bully of a running back they have lines up back there. I hope Lacy goes pro but things are still tough with everyone behind him after seeing Henry kill it in the All-American game this past weekend.

I've always believed that if you can get pressure on any quarterback then they'll make mistakes. That's why I think if we can get some pressure on him he'll make the mistakes that our secondary can pounce on.

Rip his freaking head off!

Roll this

As another blog suggested, lets not just beat Bama, lets eat Bama. Gobble on, you Gobblers. Boo-yah.

If it ain't orange, it better be maroon...and if it ain't maroon, it better be soon!

We're going to need

a massive case of dysentery to sweep through the Bama locker room the day before the game.

I think that the secondary will be the key to beat Alabama.

They need to be disciplined enough to stay home on playaction, and they need to be physical enough to come up in run support. Frankly, I don't think Jarrett or Bonner is physical enough to consistently tackle Lacy in the open field right now - here's to hoping they both can put on 20 lbs this summer.

I've always thought.....

count-down clocks were silly, but I am starting to see some value in an official BEATBAMA clock situated somewhere on this site. Joe - whaddaya think?

I have something in mind, not a countdown clock, but something else I think people will like, a take on what we usually do here in the offseason.

Anyone know when tickets go on sale? I know they're not out now, but I want to get them through Tech because anywhere else is going to be way too expensive.

Rip his freaking head off!

I checked on this a few days ago...

....emailed the contact at the C-Fil-a Kickoff web site and got a reply that said they anticipated selling only through the schools. The reply was silent on the sale date despite me specifically asking, so I'm assuming they haven't set a date.

Unless you're a season ticket holder or student, I'm guessing you will be getting these on StubHub for $200+. Apparently there is a high cost to see Saban kicked off his high horse.

Thanks. I am a Student, but I wasn't able to get a ticket to the ACC title game last year because they sold out so quickly (had to buy on in the Clemson section).

I'm just scared that if we lose one of their fans will rub his nuts on someone's face.

Rip his freaking head off!

haha, that's the opposite of every other neutral site game VT goes to...

Remove the empty trophy case. Replace it with a picture of 'bama hoisting the national title. BEATBAMA.

Twitter me

just a heads up....espn is already calling for bama to 3peat and be favorites to win next year. guess they didnt hear about #beatbama

tyrod did it mikey! tyrod did it!

maybe a stupid question ... you don't need to be a student to use student tickets do you (i.e. present student ID)? I know several students who could possibly get me tickets .. but obviously I'm not a student

Unless this is different no

Bought parents "student" tickets to Chick Fila Bowl, Orange Bowl, and Chick Fila Kickoff.

no, you don't. there are just a set number of tickets reserved for students to buy... but they will be paying the face value like the rest of us, and they have the right to sell/give it to a non-student. it is not a "student ticket" like at home games.

Livin the Dream

Follow me @HokieBarek

TECHNICALLY you need to be a student...but TECHNICALLY if you have a student ID, they don't know the difference or when you graduated...

EDIT: For home games that is. Away games are a different story as stated above

So is an unranked VT vs. #1 Alabama where Gameday goes next year or do they go to the LSU-TCU game?

Rip his freaking head off!

Never mind, I didn't realize Clemson-Georgia is Week 1. That's definitely where Gameday will be.

Rip his freaking head off!

media hard-on for all things Bama and ESPN's obvious disdain for the "constantly overrated" Hokies ... not a doubt in my mind that Gameday is where the 3-peaters will be.

Thanks for the info about the student tix everyone .. How many tix can a student typically get? I don't mind paying face. I just don't want to end up on stubhub paying $200-$300 for tickets.

Praise every football god there is that Exum is coming back. He's going to be an excellent leader and just what the team needs.
