Week 8 Other Games Thread

Memphis scored 42 points in the second half to beat Houston. They had been completely shut out in the first. Ouch.

Can't believe Memphis pulled that one off last night, their defense looked like suit for most of the night... But they forced turnovers when they needed to. This game has been close for the past few years, a must watch watch.

Sidenote: did anybody see that silly ass ending to the KC-oakland game? I've never seen anything like that before!!

Going to see powerhouse ODU faceoff against blue blood Western Kentucky tonight!

WKU at -7 is free money.

Edit: This is why I don't bet.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

This is why I don't take betting advice from random people on the internet.

Sneaky good game of the day: UCF@Navy

Ucf 31-21, so maybe not

Gotta day I'm pretty interested in the BC LOLUVA and Pitt Duke games at noon

Edit: it will also be interesting to see how the orange comes out against Miami after their huge win last week

Gonna pin that BC win to our chests and wear it w pride. Looks better every week.

With that said, UVa is playing more like UVa today. The score makes this game seem closer than it is, even at 24-7...

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

My ACC rooting guide (other than the good guys, of course) for the day:
UL over FSU, because FSU deserves the karma
Duke over Pitt, because....who am I kidding, nobody cares. OK because Coach Cut is a good guy.
WF over GT because we need GT to lose...and CPJ.
Syracuse over the U, because we need them to lose too. Ok, this isn't so important to us, but you gotta admit, it's always fun to see them figure out they ain't bak yet.
BC over LOLUVA, just because.

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

Duke over Pitt, because..........FUCK PAT NARDUZZI

Wow, Doak Campbell is empty. FSU, stop trying to be LOLUVA, it's not a good look.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

Yeah, next time I see an FSU fan tweet about support for their team, I'm sending an image of that empty stadium. Nationally ranked team with the returning Heisman winner and you can't come close to filling the stadium?

Forgot about BC running all over UL, last week.

7-7 on like a 90 yard reception by Texas.

Holy fuck, there's people at the game in hooville. Did I fall asleep and wake up the day after thanksgiving?

I've been drinking.

It's apparently "Young Alumni Reunion" weekend. They are also calling it "Bowl Game Day" 😂

They did not actually call it 'bowl game day'? Did they? I guess these are the same people that brought us #hardthingstogether.

I've been drinking.

Not officially, but according to my brother who chose the wrong school that's what all of the students are calling it.

10-0 BC over LOLUVA!!!!!

Holding BC to 180 yds through 3 qtrs and giving up a cheap TD, when ahead by 3 scores doesn't look so bad right now.

Umm that BC win is looking better and better.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Glad to see that Loeffler hasn't forgotten the most important thing from his time in Blacksburg.

BC definitely didn't get that snap off in time, but hey 76-yard TD against UVA so it's all good.

That's the 2nd play in 2 possessions that went for a 76 yd TD.

You usually get a half to full second to get a snap off after the play clock hits 00 because of the slight delay from the time it takes the official to stop looking at the clock and to look at the center/ball. Having said that, that was one really slow transition.

Well. The UVA we all know and love finally showed up!

Beat me to it...all is right in the universe again

This is as good a D as BC has seen, including ND

-BC vs LOLUVA announcer

What an absolutely absurd statement. LOLUVA is top 20 statistically, but it's been against the likes of W&M, UConn, and UNC plus 3 middle of the pack D's.

Oh, and Lefty's guys score again, to make it 24-0 in the 1st half.

If you sustain yourself on sadness, tears, and shatter dreams (as I do), check out the sabre. They are in full fucking meltdown.

I had gut feeling it would be perfect storm today.....

Apparently, at LOLUVA, this means playing a team with a pulse.

Basketball references already showing up on lesabre.

UVA is getting smoked. Honestly expected more from them today. Maybe...juuust maybe, Boston College is, dare I say it, decent?

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

They play good for 3 quarters

You expect WAY too much from LOLUVA. This is their 1st real test of the season. I wasn't expecting 24-0 early in the 2nd, but I def expected BC to win by more than 1 score.

This was supposed to be LOLUVa's most winnable remaining game. Hahahaha!!!

Naw, they still have to play Pitt. Would be beautiful to have them still on 5 W's when we play them and crush their hopes of making it to a bowl game.

No screw that I don't want to play a UVA team that is on the verge of bowl eligibility. That would be their national championship.

that's one of the worst INT's I've ever seen in my life, and I've watched a LOT of college football

I assume you're talking about the 'throwaway?' I had to call mrs. Lwyr from the kitchen to make fun of benkert.

I've been drinking.

Benkert looking like the guy that we all know and love, with an UGLY pick while trying to throw it away.

Benkert looked like he shit his pants then just gave up.

Has lefty ever lost to LOLUVa?

Other than today, the only other times he's faced UVA was with us.

So...yes?

Loeffler's never lost to UVA, no.

Interestingly, he's never beaten them by double digits, either. Let that sink in, and then get sad about recruiting from earlier this decade.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

He has experience doing so, never to the tune of 24 pts in a half.

Uva d given up over 300 yds half way through the SECOND QUARTER!!!

Scott Loeffler's a genius!

UVa fans: I think we could go to a bowl game this year

Why does Bronco ALWAYS look like he's sniffing a fart?

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Because that's what his team is.

I came here to make fun of lolUVA

LOLUVA was the benefit of 2 gift calls that resulted in BC punting the ball (phantom holding on the WR) and then the LOLUVA TD (phantom DPI in the endzone that made it 1st and goal, instead of 3rd and long at the BC 14).

Keene and Cunningham may have career games vs LOLUVA. TE's have been open all day long.

Is BC not that bad? Or is loluva fucking terrible?

I've been drinking.

Hopefully both

I think Okie St probably pulls it off, but Texas defense playing really well.

Still amazing to me that a program with those resources and recruiting grounds has been bad for as long as they have.

I just saw the UVA score scroll by during the Duke broadcast

🤣😂🤣😂

They are such 💩

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

BC with 473 yds of O, 34 pts, with over 2 min left in the 3rd. LOLUVA with 7 pts on 129 yds of O. Half of LOLUVA's yds were 1 drive and the TD was greatly assisted by a poor DPI call by the refs.

Between this and the Louisville game, Loeffler is making us look amazing right now.

UL D is not good (ok, they are horrible), so I didn't want to put too much credit to that game. LOLUVA is supposedly decent on D, but still giving up 500 yds to BC.

I saw a shot of Mendenhall walking away on TV a few minutes ago, and the resemblance to Al Groh was amazing.

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

UL & FSU all tied up again, 5:25 left.

Is Texas going to be back as a top 10 team next year?

Chances are.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

My wife's Hawkeyes tied w/ a min & half left.

And NW playing for OT.

And FSU with the LOLUVA-like fumble!

UVA just burnt Lindell Stone redshirt to come in at QB because Benkert was so bad.

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

He came in for a play when Benkerts helmet came off.

Why would you burn a redshirt if you knew your starter was coming right back?

Because LOLUVA, that's why.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

I know, right? Just dial up a wildcat play for one down and make the best of it with a direct snap to the RB

Gotta practice the qb rotation thing for when they play us?

Louisville with the field goal. 5 seconds left.

Good to see FSU go down. I'd like to take the asterisk off of our longest bowl streak.

That's one "LOLUVA" for the number of points their offense just gave up on that dropped-pass-turned-INT.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Also, why is that a RB playing QB for UVA? I just came in the door.

I have absolutely no idea why Mike Gundy has played soooo conservatively on offense today

Because he's a man and he's 40

wow way to ruin the entrance ESPN2...turn off your crappy music!

"Take care of the little things and the big things will come."

Wow.....Ehlinger with the colossal fuck up

Wahoo What Da Fuq?

They thought they were better than they were because the bottom of the ACC Coastal is really, really bad.

Last week, they sealed their win over UNC with an obvious missed facemask call.

Crowd loudly booing Da Undefeated Totally Bak U playcalling. Up 7. At home.

Fans are Bak too👌🏼

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

I don't believe you. There's no way there are enough fans at that game for there to be noticeable booing.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Football moms, man. They can yell.

Fisher is right about this. Fans are ridiculous.

That's still not a good look on Fisher IMO. It has a "my dad can beat up your dad" ring of immaturity to it.

Yeah, he lost his cool.

But Fans B ridiculous.

He's won a national championship, ACC Championships, and this is the first season he hasn't won at least 9 games. They lost their starting QB in the first game of the season. You do have to remember that these are student athletes out there. If you're a fan of a team, you shouldn't be booing them or yelling nonsense at the coach after a loss. It just makes the fan base look bad.

HELL YES! FAM!

Does this mean we win the battle of NC2VT?

Edit: meant for other thread, but still stands.

Dungey has so much heart.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

U's coach running his mouth at Cuse's QB. Trash

The tv commentator was saying Diaz was complimenting Dungey, I can't see Diaz trash talking the kid after Miami won the game.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Dungey certainly wasn't reacting like he said anything nice. He went from disappointed to mad as hell after Diaz said something to him.

It wasn't Diaz.

Different assistant coach that was jawing with Dungey.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Wow Pitt won an ACC game. Did not see that coming. Duke has really gone down hill.

Miami is vulnerable as hell but no one wants to talk about it.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Yeah I am sure they know their winning streak days are numbered, they get a worn down UNC next week and I hope Miami wins and can get to 7 or 6 but at least stay at 8 so when we "upset" them in 2 weeks we can make a big jump in the rankings. I just hope Ga Tech doesn't beat us the following week. I hope we don't look past Duke but to be honest Pitt and U.VA don't scare me and Duke seems to be dropping too. Miami and Ga Tech are my only concerns and Ga Tech more so than Miami.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

It's going to be critically imporant that we be able take care of business next week to keep our starters rested because the following two weeks are going to be physically brutal.

That other narrative is too strong.

Fine with me. I want Miami in the top 5 for our game. I want Herbie and a Richt hamming it up in a dimple filled interview. I want Testeverde in camo on the sideline. I want Uncle Luther and Nevin Shapiro leading them out of the fog. I want Donna Shalala singing the National Anthem in a slinky cocktail dress. I want Larry Coker to emerge from his Nosfaratu coffin. I want a jet ski bringing in the football. I want LeBatard as the head referee

Give me all the the Miami anyone can take.

I'll take Justin Fuente.

I for one, do NOT want to see Donna Shala in a slinky coctail dress

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Don't forget Jimmy Johnson and Bitch Davis.

Edit: that was swype, but I'm leaving it.

I think everyone is talking about it.

KSU GOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Where is Lawson?!

Big10 is overrated this year. Penn St is about to roll Michigan and it shouldn't surprise.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Psu hasn't played anyone, but they are fantastic.

Notre Dame exposing USC hopefully once and for all. This ND team got pretty good again in a hurry, but with their remaining schedule don't know if I see them running the table

Just give Saquon the Heisman tonight.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

So remember that signature win LOLUVA had, BYU, they are losing BADLY to ECU.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

...Oh man

It's for nuggets like this that I read the game threads after the weekend!

Run to Win. Pass To Score

Weird. After the weekend of upsets last weekend there were exactly zero upsets involving top 25 teams this week.

*RankingsOnATreadmill does not respect ND over USCw as an upset, as it has been plain to see all year that USCw has been overrated

Looking at the AP Poll, I will be surprised if there's much if any movement in the top 10. Everyone was either off or won. Maybe Miami might jump Clemson, at least on some individual ballots, since Miami > Syracuse > Clemson.

11-14 could get interesting. We should definitely move up with #13 ND beating #11 USC. #12 Washington was idle. I think ND gets #11. We're moving up at least one spot, and we could possibly jump Washington.

Prediction: VT is #12 or #13.
