UNC Opponent Preview - Virginia Tech

The folks over on TarHeelBlog have put together a preview of their game against us.

https://www.tarheelblog.com/2018/7/10/17548754/unc-tar-heels-football-la...

Love the subtitle ("The Justin Fuente Hokies have made a point of making Carolina look bad."), and there's a pretty nice nod to Bud Foster part way in ("[With all the losses], DC Bud Foster may have his work cut out for him, personnel-wise. That said, I'll never bet against that crazy hillbilly.").

It's a decent high-level look at what we return, so I thought I'd share it here.

Reading that makes them almost seem human.

I never met a project that couldn't justify a new tool.

Well I'm sure back to back blowout losses have humbl......I can't type that with a straight face

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

I'm amused at the "Glass houses" comment about the rumors of cheating with regards to Josh Jackson. Like that situation is an any way comparable to what happened at UNC.

Dont expect folks with fake degrees to understand that 1 < 3000

Keep calm, Gobble on

1 that was actually being investigated by a legit review board vs 3000 is more like 1 < 3 billion

One student athlete possibly cheating versus an entire department faking grades for decades (allegedly). Same same, right?

Oh wow. Look at this gem:

I would be remiss to fail to mention the last two outcomes: the 34-3 loss in the "Hurricane Game" should have been delayed, but Hokie Twitter assumes we're WAY saltier over this than we actually are.

They're not salty but they're still talking about how it "should have been delayed." What does this statement say about the toughness of their rival NC State that played in the same hurricane?

They're almost as delusional about their program as loluva

Give them a break, you know it only rained when they were on offense.

I might actually buy them not being salty, because there is a ceiling to how much they care about football down there.

is it the roof, you ask...no. Far lower than the roof.

Not to mention that their field actually drained all the rain unlike the pool that NC State played in. Their fans gave up right after halftime when we scored. That was a great game to be my first VT game I've been to.

They've done a bunch of... interesting metal covers over the years

....What the hell did I just watch....

That went from cheesy as hell to huh I wanna watch that again in over the span of 3 minutes.

I've also been hearing many covers of that song lately.

Exactly my thoughts on the video, which is why I posted it. Liked the outtro, too.

A strangely interestingly sorta stupid but catchy song with vocal highlights and decent guitar. Not sure why I liked it at the time, but I kinda sorta did.

And we didn't hear Duke having an epic toddler meltdown after we beat them in torrential rains at Lane last season...

Probably because Coach Cutcliffe has actually made Duke football tough.

As somebody who remembers that team before him, that felt weird to type.

Coming from someone who hates Duke as much as LOLUVA and will make up shots to take at them out of thin air, you're absolutely right.

Maybe they should hire a meteorologist to give them forecasts about potential conditions they'll be playing in....or ya know adjust their game plan based on conditions

Taylor, looking desperately throws it deep..HAS A MAN OPEN DANNY COALE WITH A CATCH ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FIVE!!!!....hes still open

After the whole article of how many breakout players we lost, they predict themselves to lose at the end.
I guess being outscored 93-10 in two years will do that to you.

Right...it's a different year. They'll keep it close to the tune of about 31-10 or something

I was actually amused that they think they'll keep it within ten.

This article makes Flagpole Sitta start playing in my head.. You know the line "Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding....."

I would be remiss to fail to mention the last two outcomes: the 34-3 loss in the "Hurricane Game" should have been delayed,

Matthew was not a huge hurricane like Harvey and Irma that were legit storms to postpone a game...

Last year's 59-7 blowout featured Tech running up the score, and was the closest thing I've seen to Bunting-era football since, well, the Bunting .

We were up by 5 touchdowns at the half! Did they expect us to stop playing after halftime so they could UNCHeat their way back? And the weather that day was perfect for football and they couldn't get down the field. The only hurricane anywhere nearby was the one coming out of the speakers when our sound guys were trolling them by playing "Rock Me Like a Hurricane" all game long.

They could probably supply the whole state of NC (and maybe even VA) with salt.

Question: do games @UNC count as home games? Is that Lane South?

Hokie fan | W&M grad

I would say yes. Especially if there is more O&M in the stands than crybaby blue.

We were up by 35 at halftime, and 45 after only 5:06 ticked off in the 3rd quarter, at which point we pulled the starters on offense. FFS, even Coleman Fox got 3rd quarter touches.

Not our fault they couldn't keep a bunch of backups out of the endzone.

Who can forget Mitch staring off into the distance...

FOSTERS: Australian for defense

At that point, he was just thinking about kissing titties.

Fifty thousand people used to live here. Now it’s a ghost town.

He goes by Mitchell, thanks

Interesting choice of words and punctuation. What I read here is that the loss should have been delayed, not the "Hurricane Game".

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

You know, if you don't count this article along with every other one they've published, this blog is very reputable.

Got a reasonably clean layout that doesn't make my eyes bleed. There, I said something nice about it.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

DT Ricky Walker (#8) looks like a budding star in the middle.

They we're on to something with this, but then lost all credibility with the next sentence...

The dropoff from Settle to Walker shouldn't be felt too much— he amassed 12.5 tackles for loss and did not play starter's snaps behind Settle and Vinny Mihota, who also returns.

🤔🤔🤔

Edit: As I think about it more, whoever wrote this is correct. Ricky didn't play starter's snaps
behind
Big Tim and Mihota last year, he played his starter's snaps BETWEEN them

That and he has started 5 more games than Settle. Statements like this is why some say ricky is under rated/valued

BUDDING??? They don't even know what they've done there....tip of the stetson...I guess

This might be the funniest thread I've read on here in a while. LOL..
