Hate Week Quotes

Posting quotes is not something I do much of, but after watching Virginia Tech's weekly media session on Monday, and reading what the Virginia players had to say, I decided to. I get the feeling that the Hokies, at least the ones made available to the media, are focussed on the Hoos, and want to win this football game every bit as much as we do.

The following quotes were scraped from articles by the writers on the beat: Norm Wood, Mark Giannotto, Andy Bitter, David Teel, and Mike Barber.

Don't ask Bane Gayle what time it is.

"We don't have a clock," said Gayle, a Bethel High graduate. "We have a Cup."

It's a reference to the Commonwealth Cup, which is rewarded to the winner of the game — and has been in Tech's possession after the last nine meetings.

"I don't have no empathy, no sympathy for those guys," Gayle said.

Yes, we're still more than a week away from the Tech-U.Va. game, but it's never too early for a little trash-talking, especially in Gayle's world. He's not shy about providing bulletin board material for U.Va.

"They talk about how they have the clock in their locker room, countdown to Virginia Tech," Gayle said. "They think so highly of us. We're not going to disappoint them.

Logan Thomas on why Virginia wasn't a major player during his recruitment.

"If there's one thing I hate, it's losing, and the way things were, it didn't seem like things were going to get better anytime soon," Thomas said at Virginia Tech's weekly news conference. "And another thing is that their fans weren't as passionate as they are here and you always want to play in front of a sold-out crowd."

I'd like Virginia to be the worst in football forever and ever too, Jack Tyler.

"I would never say that I would wish anything negative upon anybody," linebacker Jack Tyler said, somewhat diplomatically, "but if there's one team in the country who'd [I'd like to] be poor, it'd be UVa."

/Logan Thomas looks up, points at the scoreboard.

"On the field, I think the last nine years have kind of spoken for themselves," Thomas said. "I don't think anybody thinks anybody is better than anybody, but at times you kind of get the feeling that because their school is prestigious, I guess that they feel they're better than we are. But I think everybody knows who the better half is."

The text below doesn't do Andrew Miller's serious face justice.

Miller said he'll make sure his teammates are focused this week on beating Virginia, not being distracted by the possibility of reaching the league title game on Dec. 7 in Charlotte

"I will not pay attention at all. I like to focus in. our one thing this week is uva and that's my main goal," Miller said. "Actually, I don't like hearing people talk about that because that's not our importance right now. If that happens, it happens. But I think that's a sign of losing focus if that's what we're focusing on. Because this week should be all about uva, no matter what happens afterwards, it's the fact that we need to come out here and win the Commonwealth Cup."

The #newhoos are interested in Saturday's football game too.

"It's been forever since we beat them," defensive tackle Brent Urban said.

What would a victory over the Hokies mean? What would it feel like?

"It's something I've thought about for a long time," defensive end Jake Snyder said. "It's something we talk about all year long."

"I don't think anything can wipe away nine losses," fullback Billy Skrobacz said, "but it would be a big win."

Pride is a powerful motivator.

"We're not really playing for much at this point other than pride," Skrobacz said, "and there's a lot of guys on this team that have a lot of pride."

I like it

I support Coach Frank Beamer.

VT '10, Born & Raised in the 804. Hokies, Keydets, Army Black Knights, NY Giants, NY Rangers, and ATL Braves.

Found this quote also...

9 straight is awesome, but 10 straight is better. A lot better. Make it happen. Fuck UVa.

Leonard

These players really want to smash UVA until they can't be smashed anymore. I love it.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I want the french beaten so badly that when the game is over, they have to throw away their equipment.

Just win. The punchlines will write themselves for the vanquished once the battle is settled.

Viva El Guapo

Great quotes, glad to see that the Hokies are fired up for this game. I hate LOLUVA as well!

Touchdown Tech - Bill Roth

Its fine to be fired up, but wait until after the game to talk trash. If we win, walk up to that dipshit OC and let him have it.

Correy

Screw that! We let him have it before, during and after...and for the rest of his life.

True Hokies STICK IT IN!!!

STICK IT IN Army of Virginia Tech

Fosterball

I'd rather us mop the floor with them and have our defense completely SHUTDOWN (dare I say shutout? We are about due for another...) that clown's offense, and no Hokie say a word to the OC after the game. Just have the TV camera pan slowly over to his face only to see how stupid he feels after that loss.

This one is my favorite so far this week, "Yeah, I know about the whole Thomas Jefferson thing, but we are talking football and I mean really, Thomas Jefferson, this is football we are talking. Who cares when your team and your fans suck so bad?"

Fortune Favors the Bold

aahhhhh I can't wait for the epic quotes after the game!!!!!! It's going to be a great one, after hibernating all day Friday I will wake up in bed put on..but not watch the duke game and then bamm 3'oclock doomsday will have begun!

I will also make sure to drop my kids off at Exum Day Care since there will be some harsh words used from 3pm-3pm the next day

"I'm high on Juice and ready to stick it in!" Whit Babcock

I want James Gayle miked up for this game.

"Go Hokies!" - Thomas Jefferson
@HaydenDubya

...and Dadi, that kid goes fucking nuts in between plays

"Go Hokies!" - Thomas Jefferson
@HaydenDubya

That last quote from Gayle is priceless.

Rip his freaking head off!

I think I've posted this joke before but I can't find it...so here it is

A guy goes to a bar with his dog and the bar tender won't let him bring the dog in. He pleads with the bartender to let him bring the dog inside...

Patron: "Aww, c'mon, let me bring the dog in, he does tricks"
Barkeep: "What kind of tricks?"
P: "Well, he loves to watch college football..in particular, Virginia and Virginia Tech."
B: "Okay..?"
P: "When Virginia wins a game the dog runs to the end of the bar and back on his hind legs. When Virginia Tech wins a game he runs to the end of the bar and back on his front legs."
B: "That's interesting; what does he do when Virginia and Virginia Tech play each other?"
P: "Well, when Virginia Tech beats Virginia he does back flips down to the end of the bar and back."
B: "That's pretty neat, what does he do when Virginia beats Virginia Tech?"
P: "I'm not sure, the dog's only 9 years old."

"I like to hit a home run early" ~ Whit "knows how to create a Buzz" Babcock

Up-vote! Did you hear this in Dr. Torg's class?

#BeatPitt

No, I can't actually remember where I heard this joke. I think when I originally heard it it wasn't about LOLUVA and VT but I tailored it to work. I've been telling that joke since the dog was 7(2011) and I took Torg's class in 2009 or 10. Awesome class though! Thanks for the leg! Here, you can have one too :D

Go Hokies!

"I like to hit a home run early" ~ Whit "knows how to create a Buzz" Babcock

Yeah Torg's class was the bomb. That's where I heard it probably last fall. The assistant athletic director for football operations (some long title like that) visited the class and told it to us. A personal favorite joke!
