There are actually 6 players from this game on our Fantasy rosters:

Adrianne's team: BC Defense
FIghtin Gobblers: Greg Dortch WR, Wake
nick's Team: Scotty Robinson WR, Wake (on Bench)
Walker, Hokie Ranger: AJ Dillon BC RB; Matt Colburn II Wake RB (on Bench)
kevin's Team: Tom Sweeney BC, TE

Walker, Hokie Ranger is a solid fantasy name. I take a lot of pride in my fantasy team names lol

Shouldn't of dropped Anthony Brown a few days ago...

Fugazy

Dillon looking very good. Foster will need to have a great plan to slow him down this year.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Cam Akers was supposedly a top 5 RB in the country and I think we did a pretty good job with him

Dillon has a better line in front of him and a team that actually knows what they're doing most of the time.

team that actually knows what they're doing most of the time.

Not something I ever expected to be used to describe a Scot Loeffler offense on TKP.

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

However, Scot Loeffler is calling his plays...

He was successful last time he called plays for Addazio, looks like that could be happening again.

Washington just Grimsley'd a BC DE

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

Lots of karma being dealt so far

Aj started hot, but Wake is containing him now

Looks like you spoke too soon, Reese

Yeah, I'm sure Bud is watching and building a gameplan accordingly

Wakes returner is shifty, I feel like he's gonna get one this game

Where'd everyone go

I'm still here, man

The founder of r/cfb was a Louisiana Tech fan who often had the game thread to himself... This made me think of that

Lmao that's hilarious

Holy crap.

That dude is a legend.

Aj is eating again

Hurricane coverage during college football gameplay? Two of my favorite things combined

Qb has some wheels, but his youth is definitely showing

Get some experience on him and I think he has the potential to be good though

Perhaps

Looks like a catch to me

You called it

God damn right I did

Ya'll gonna downvote this, but I'm bouta speak the damn truth.

That BC fan was not random.

Lol, I think that Joe tessitore guy might want to look into it as a career

I feel like Boston College is about to break this thing open

Boston College is in for a world of hurt when they come to Lane.

"Oh wow lots of discussion about the BC Wake game."

*Sees man standing in the corner talking to himself...

Using /s is for cowards.

What's this guy talking about?

No idea, man

Good game thus far. BC Oline, if they would just run between the tackles look like they could pancake the Wake D, but they're just a bit to cute with the calls so far. I see them pulling away in this one unless they keep shooting themselves in the foot.

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

Special teams imploding

Loeffler getting too cute on a play call? No way.

Wow!!

Watchin the ODU game too, honestly they looked overmatched. Lookin at their schedule I honestly don't know if they'll get a win until VMI towards the end of the season. Not sure if the other teams are good but historically they're about average so I'm guessing ODU will struggle.

Fugazy

What channel is that on?

Espn3/Espn app

Fugazy

Thanks

I think we'd have like 6 pics against this Wake qb

Brilliant drive by Wake. The QB has a great mesh point.

Boston College got some thick cheerleaders though

Hokies gonna drop 80 on ODU if they want to

Boogie Basham from Roanoke VA for Wake. I wonder if that is any kin to Bernard Basham (I played football with him at PH in the late 80's)

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

Wake has 9 players from VA I think. This kind of random possibilities and stories about VA kids is why I'm planning on VA recruit post on each team we play once we get to ACC/Notre dame games.

Fugazy

BC-WF both looking very beatable

I think BC is starting to get going here. Their line looks large. Wake selling out on the run, and now brown's making them pay.

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

Wake Forest's OL are no slouches. They opened up a 5 yard den for the Wake RB a few minutes ago, he didn't make it outside, but he walked to the front of it waiting for a hole to open up.

Parents of Carlos are Carlos Sr. and Crystal

watched the ODU game. They are... not good this year.

I like Bobby Wilder and the job he did building that program out of nothing, but 5-7 last year and 0-4 so far this year is going to get a lot of people calling for his head even with a 10 win season two years ago.

Proud of Lefty man, I know he wasn't everyone's favorite OC but I thought he worked his balls off trying to improve our program. Glad to see he's having some success up at BC.

I think he's in a place where he's going to be successful. Boston College won't blow anybody away recruiting, but like Boise and GT, they rely heavily on their system. He's got a complicated, long-term system, and I'm not sure Auburn (or even we) are patient enough for that to finally pay off.

Too much talent wasting- let's simplify this a bit and win now.

His system does work better with a bell cow RB and a good oline. We didnt have either one when he was here. However, his play calling still lacks. He calls to many cutesy drive killing plays.

This BC-WF game is low key entertaining

low key entertaining

*low key thicc

E X T R A

Both OLs are blowing the defenses off the ball.

Both OCs think they need to pass for whatever reason.

I'm enjoying this game. The quick freshman QB for Wake has some moxy. The guy creates a great mesh point. He's thrown into coverage a bunch but that drop by Dorch was a perfectly thrown ball.

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

That Cade (WF) kid reminds me of Fox.

I'm thinking the VT Wideouts should have a big game vs BC. Hazelton and Hezzy should get 200+ yards alone.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

WF DB's are horrible. Every pass play has at least one wide open WR.

The BC game has the potential to be the 2nd toughest game at Lane. Our dline won't really be tested but once maybe twice up to that point with a running attack that potent and definietly not with that quality of back since Cam Akers. FSU's oline is garbage and had problems against Samford, so I'm not sold on our Dline being able to handle a strong oline with a great rb just yet. I'm sure they'll do better than Wake but it'll be a big challenge. I imagine bud will load the box and dare Anthony Brown to throw to win the game.

Fugazy

Well, our DB's will definitely play better. WF's DB's have been just sad.

I know I don't know what pass interference is, anymore.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Watching Narduzzi being "puzzled" will always get a leg from me.

Just realized this morning that all our away games (outside of Pitt) are within a few hours, either NC or VA.

yeah man. Every other year is the year of the home game. Even years are the best.

That was a post in one of the other threads last week or so.... Essentially EVERY away game except for F$U is technically a home game, especially if you live in NOVA... They are all within driving distance.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

I'm halfway paying attention to this game. Not sure if BC's pass offense is really good or WF's pass defense is really bad tonight. Probably both.

I'm wondering if ODU being terrible will help drive ticket prices down for next week's game because of ODU fans bailing. Norfolk is so close to me but I don't want to pay a crazy price for a blowout game.

You'll get them for $10 outside of the stadium. Would be great if we make it a home game.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Eh... 20,000 seats, in the middle of a big Hokie population center, I highly doubt street value will drop below $50 or so. I know Hokies that ordered ODU season tickets to guarantee themselves a seat.

I won't mind paying $50. Just trying to avoid $100+ that I'm seeing right now on Craigslist/Stubhub. Guess I'll wait until gameday.

If you can tolerate missing the kickoff you can probably score some cheap ones. Worst case scenario you listen on the radio on the quick drive home.

It's Time to go to Work

I'M HERE REESE. ONSIDE KICK A'COMIN!

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Sorry I left ya hanging, had to go make dinner for the kids.

Thought it had a bugger bounce than that. Remember like...geeze it's been 10-12yrs ago, we did an out-of-nowhere onside kick with the kicker essentially just rolling the ball and everyone else going for the blocks...easiest recover ever. I've been waiting for that one to be dusted off at some point.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

glad BC pulled that off. I don't know if our SoS can take too many more hits with miami and FSU underwelming and Florence/ECU depriving us of the W this weekend. Also, ODU looks...bad.

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

Somebody had to keep the party going!

The best game of the season is on today, Kansas vs. Rutgers.

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

Game of the century!

The best game until the thrilling conference matchup of Rutgers and Maryland, you mean. Brings back echoes of the great matchups of past conferences, like Rutgers vs Temple in Big East days. So important.

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 find it hard to bring myself to root for Florida State today. I understand them winning helps our strength of schedule, ...but... its FSU - and fuck FSU.

I feel the same way. I just never want them to win anything ever again. Is that so bad?

Is that so bad?

Not at all, my man. Not. at. all.

I'm on board with the camp that our strength of schedule doesn't matter. It's only going to matter to get into the CFP, and the only way to get there is to knock out Clemson in December.

Otherwise, the bowls don't care.

I think the ACC is more fun when FSU is good. Ideally VT, Clemson, FSU, Miami would all be elite every year.

I'd settle for having 2 top-shelf programs, as long as one of them is VT

I want one of two things to happen:

1. Win most of their games from here to help our SOS
2. Collapse completely in a black hole of suck, not go bowl eligible

If they go 7-6 again I would consider that a disapointment.

I'm enjoying watching the Gameday crew drag sitty Twitter fan takes.

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

Anyone catch the last segment of SportsCenter before GameDay started?

Finebaum was going on about Boise St vs Oklahoma State. He kept referring to them as "Oklahoma", but I figured it was because both teams were State or something. Until the very end where he mentioned Kyler Murray (OK's QB), and the SportsCenter host just looked awkwardly at the camera.

I heard from the other room, but I figured maybe they switched coverage for a lil bit. That's great.

I knew Awful Announcing would pick up on it.

I think I'll make some beer brats, caramelized onions , and potato salad today.

After realizing what was happening in this thread, I have fully stocked you with 42 turkey legs, so maybe eat those instead.

Haha, appreciate it fam

Can't wait for the Ohio Bobcats to destroy my little ponies' cavs.

How the heck does Ohio at Uva at Vanderbilt (with game moved less than a week before kickoff) get ESPN2. Woulda been streaming only for us......

It was originally streaming only, but the other games moving around opened up the spot on ESPN2.

GA Southern at Clemson had the 3:30 spot on ESPN2, but that was moved to noon on ESPNU, replacing UCF/UNC.

There were a couple of other games that got bumped up from online only or SEC Network Alternate to a real TV channel.

Good slate for noon games. Cuse-FSU, Miami-Toledo, Pitt-GT. I see all these being pretty even.

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

If all of them are even, it pretty much proves that our schedule this year is extremely weak and that weeks 1 and 2 weren't flukes. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

FSU looks like it has FCS DBs next to Cuse WRs

I really hope FSU can look better today... Looking unlikely so far.

A Hokie living in Tennessee.

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

yeah...not helping our cause at all. We're gonna have to win every game.

Hmm, makes me wonder. Would you rather FSU tank this season and put the bowl streak firmly in our control but also tank that quality win or have them do well for the rest of the season and benefit our SOS?

Good question.

I suppose the answer is that if they're going to be bad, we need them to be so bad they miss a bowl.

Looks like we're in luck

How can Florida State be this deep in talent and have an oline THIS bad?

Came here to say the same. 'Cuse is beating them on the edge every single snap.

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

Fake Injury!

Heard the Cuse fanbase boo'ing too.

I don't think the Landon Dickerson miss is hurting us much.

TKPhi Damn Proud
BSME 2009

To his credit, he looked a little banged up even against us

Being banged up doesn't mean you play dirty and make late hits though.

I am already drinking, but it's worth saying again... It's 1000% obvious (/s) that the FSU player is faking that injury.

FSU's turnover bookbag is cute.

I was wondering if I saw that correctly.... a turnover back pack?

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

I love the way the announcer described it:

"Latest Turnover Incentive Device" or some such.

#extendbronco

Francois looks scared every time he throws the ball. Prob a combination of his injury from last year and that crappy line play .

Go watch 2016, he is hit on 60% of the plays if not more. He takes a huge beating..

Temple up by 7 on Maryland. Would love to see Temple win that one.

FSU's offense is pathetic. In the rare event they do have a positive offensive play, it's almost always called back for a penalty.

Yeah saw them talking about the heat and humidity in there shortly after he went down. But I refuse to let facts get in the way of my narrative /s

Well, you've got to feel for the Noles. It was a hot and humid environment in the Carrier Dome. They probably aren't used to that kind of weather in Florida.

Plus, that Syracuse tempo will get after ya.

#DoSomething is the absolute worst hashtag that a school struggling as badly as FSU could be using. They're going to be the butt of jokes all season.

Between this and the backpack, I feel like they're *trying* to be the butt of jokes.

This reminds me of my sophomore year at Longwood... I lived in a co-ed dorm (same dorm all 3 years I lived on campus). Anyways, the building I lived in was H shaped and the hall I lived on sophomore year was adjacent to my freshman hall... There was a couple who came to Longwood as a couple who lived on my hall from freshman year. There were times that the guy was on a retractable leash----she would yell for him and you could hear the leash retract as he answered. So we get back on campus from a break and she is having a hissy fit. She YELLED down the hall "(Boyfriend)!!!!!! SOMEBODY STOLE MY TOOTHBRUSH!!!!!!!! DO SOMETHING!!!!

Nice to see the Refs calling that "Illegal blocking/man downfield" on those RPO's. 4 of them so far in the FSU-Syracuse game.

How 'bout Pitt?

So yea, I guess no matter how talented your players are, it is not easy to install a new system.

This game is tough to watch.

The Taggart should tweet his system so it works with who he has. Same with Frost.

Its not the system. The system is not complex at all.

I'm not convinced that Taggart is a good coach. FSU is undisciplined, and they seem to lack the classic FSU swag that we are used to seeing. This group looks completely lost and unprepared each week.

Is it football season yet?

I think some of it is the system since it is asking pro style players to run a very different system. But I agree they look very unprepared to run that system. Fuente knows what he had and called plays that they could run, FSU can't run their plays. They look unprepared for pretty much everything, Their run blocking is just confusing.

*after Loeffler any play calling looks better unless you have an AJ Dillion.

Agreed. If you saw this game right before halftime, FSU's lack of preparation was glaringly apparent.

they seem to lack the classic FSU swag that we are used to seeing

Did you miss the "swag surfing" or whatever that was before kickoff on Labor Day?

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

You're awful nice. Taggart is in way over his head.

This 'Cuse FSU game is the embodiment of #GoACC

That was a coaching (or QB decision making) malfunction in the FSU game.

You can't throw in the middle of the field with time that low.

Francois is getting clobbered back there.

Their offense is a malfunction.

Damn near 6 quarters since FSU scored a TD against an FBS opponent. Let that sink in.

Damn near 6 8 quarters since FSU scored a TD against an FBS opponent. Let that sink in.

Syracuse is used to playing shootouts so it's interesting to see a defensive game vs FSU. I think this game is confirming what we all suspected: FSUs defense is good but their offense is awful.

LMFAO, OH GAWD.

Wow Willie channeling his inner Time Cop with that clock management

Alexa, show me a poorly coached team.

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

FSU= dumpster fire

That's not a dumpster fire, that's taggert's chair. 🔥 🔥

Might end up being the worst FBS team we play this year. Will be a close race between them and UNCheat

I know Jimbo got a nice pay bump going to A&M and it puts him closer to Houston for family reasons, but you can't help but wonder if part of reason he left was he knew the oline was going to be dumpster fire this year. Oline issues like this are not something that can easily be fixed with 1 or 2 good recruiting classes.

I missed what happened to Dungey. Can someone fill me in?

Hey got tackled on a play, after he was down an fsu player hit him helmet to helmet and he went to the sideline for concussion testing.

And now it's time to show the world
That victory is ours tonight

Late hit concussion.

Why is the Carrier Dome so hot?

I'm sure Syracuse is using their massive Humidifier system when FSU is on offense to injure their players. Isn't it obvious?

Perhaps you're being sarcastic but in case not, the Carrier dome is ironically not air conditioned.

Dino making the Espn reporter run after him after halftime was lame. She kept up with him though.

I'm going to unapologetically say it: FSU is full of the most prima donna, Deion "Primetime" wannabes I have ever seen in my life. Yeah they have shunned us to go there because "iron sharpens iron" or whatever, but the instant they are faced with adversity, they give up. Weak, pathetic, and fake. And top VA talent is wasted going there. Sick of it. #VA2VT

Maybe not so much after this year...

So, now FSU's being accused of fake injuries?

Can't wait to hear from Taggart on this.

Priceless to hear the Cuse fans booing the FSU players for slowing their offense down with injuries.

Syracuse starting to wear out FSU on the ground is a really bad sign. If Florida State doesn't score on their next drive they're finished.

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

FSU getting a taste of their own medicine as they're players go down.

Where's the beef?

Looks like a few of us are drinking!

Where's the beef?

It's gameday. Cheers!!

FSU getting gashed now.
They suck!

Year 3 is coming up!

"It just happened too often so it's hard not to" - Taggart on whether he thought VT was faking injuries.

Miami in a dogfight with...Toledo

Toledo having probs breaking serve.

Whoa... Timeout. Miami 28, Toledo 21?? Wtf?

I've always enjoyed watching Toledo play. A lot of people sleep on the Rockets! They are a good team.

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

Starting to think Taggart's offense is too simple to be lethal.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used."
- The BoD

Oh, it's definitely lethal. Lethal to their bowl streak.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Man FSU offensive tackles are slowwww

FSU is so trash lol

Willie might want to miss that return flight. I thought Syracuse would win, but not roll them like this.

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

I know were hatin on the noles, but F syracuse at the dome. Beat us, Clemson and probably now FSU in the span of a couple years at home.

Fugazy

The Dome is the ACC's house of chaos so I can't be that mad. We only have to see it once every 12 years anyway.

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

Florida State may not win 3 games. Time to finally put the bowl streak* to bed.

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

Well, I guess we opened our season against a creampuff after all.

Not that we didn't already suspect this, but we can't really take too much from that FSU win other than the fact that the offense really needs to continue to improve.

VT offense: 17 points against FSU D
Samford offense: 26 points against FSU D
Syracuse offense: 20 points and counting against FSU D

Is it football season yet?

Ditto, our D doesn't look as tremendous considering how much Syracuse is dominating them. Their offense looks completely inept. And yes to the offense, granted we played @FSU but we gotta keep taking steps. Duke will be a good barometer for the offense, they may struggle to score with Daniel Jones out so our defense may be enough to win but it'll be the first real test in several weeks for the offense.

Fugazy

It irks me when people try to compare how we fare when looking at who has played who and the differences . Coach Fu played conservative as hell once we went up . I think he knew he didn't have to do much on the offensive side of the call to win the game after a couple of quarters . Buy yes FSU sucks

The post wasn't meant to be negative about the offense, it was simply an observation.

Fu/Corn may have played conservative, but there were certainly a lot of execution type blunders that held the O in check most of the evening. Chalk some of that up to it being the first game.

They took a positive step forward from an execution standpoint against W&M.
I hope they take another positive step forward in each of the next two games as well. If they don't it might be business as usual in Blacksburg on the offensive side of the ball.

Young team, growing pains expected. Just an observation.

Is it football season yet?

don't underestimate the carrier dome cursed heat...FSU is still bad though!

I actually feel bad watching FSU. They are horrible. I'd be shocked if Taggert lasts til mid season. It's one thing to be rough around the edges when installing a new system but the team is just horribly unprepared and undisciplined. An embarrassment to watch.

With how bad we are finding out FSU's offense is, I guess we really dont know how good our defense is yet. They moved the ball pretty well against us, we were just able to keep them out of the endzone.

But he doesn't have his people yet. /s

Yeah they're not Taggert's 4/5 * recruits, they're Jimbo's 4/5 * recruits. Give him time /s

Getting rid of Willie would cost $21 million this year. Not to mention the multi year contracts with guaranteed money for assistants. FSU is now the newest basketball school in the ACC.

So is Pitt our main competition for the Coastal this season?

Is it football season yet?

yes

That's not saying much because Pitt looked terrible last week against Penn State.

Yeah, I saw this when it happened. That's just poor coaching right there, man.

Saw that too. Terrible play and coaching.

Lord FSU's oline is terrible. Francis (yes, Francis) is getting visibly pissed at all the hits. No chemistry on that team. While I agree our win didn't say much about this year's Hokie squad, damn if it didn't feel good at the time and I'm not gonna apologize for it. Fuck SOS and all the other bullshit. The schedule is what it is. I just hope we continue to grow and get better, taking care of business each week. And the worse teams like FSU and Miami are, the happier I'll be.

I'm also not sure why FSU doesn't play with at TE on the LOS. No additional blocking for Akers or help blocking for Francois. They really just running 4 wide, reminds me of when the old ball coach with the Redskins would only keep a back and have everyone else out wide and the QB would get crushed.

Who you taking first; Scott Frost or Willie Taggart?

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

I think Frost is def worse. Looks like Jimbo left at the most opportune time like he knew what he had. Taggert's gotta get brand new guys, but unless Frost comes back and wint atleast FSU beat the FCS team they played. But I imagine Frost might have a longer leash than Taggert.

Fugazy

Taggart's gotta get brand new guys? FSU has had some of top classes each of the last 5 years. And all higher ranked than any class VT has ever signed.

RECRUITING CLASS AVERAGES LAST 4 years

FSU 5th
SU 56th

Nebraska hasn't played an FCS team, theirs got cancelled in week 1. Troy is a really good G5 program that beat LSU last year and only lost by 7 at Clemson the year before.

Frost, no contest...Troy beat LSU last year and Nebraska doesn't have much talent, so it'll take awhile...Taggart was 47-50 before this season, and only had one 10 win season in the AAC, he's trash as a coach.

Give me Scott Frost. Taggart has all the talent in the world to work with. Nebraska was in a much worse state as a program going into this season.

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

I still think Scott Frost is a great coach. His first year at ucf want great either, it takes time and Nebraskas talent level is extremely low.

I think taggert will eventually pull it together and make fsu at least respectable, but no he's not a great coach. Right now I think they are suffering from the extreme hype they had coming into the season retracting so quickly.

I liked this from the FSU Board "Yeah how do opposing fans and announcers not see that? This is the worst or second worst team in the ACC (UNC is awful too) and could very easily go 2-10 this year. Congratulations Cuse, you still suck."

It's like the opposite of greatness recognizes greatness, Garbage recognizes garbage!

Who we want to get crushed today? Ok St or BS st?

Despite our loses to both of these teams, I actually like both programs. I'm just hoping for a good game.

I do hope, however, that LSU beats Auburn.

I am not. Go tigers!

I predict a Tigers win.

In fact, I guarantee it.

Boise. It's always Boise.

Duke up early against Baylor. They benched little Brewer after his WR fumbled the ball fighting for yards. Not sure I understand - he was the #1 ranked QB last week on PFF.

Duke's backup QB looks like Daniel Jones 2.0. Accurate, good arm, doesn't put the ball in bad spots, and somewhat athletic.

..well that's not what I like to see.

Don't get too upset - I'm not sure he has thrown a ball past 15 yards, most have been less than 5 yards downfield. 2 of 9, but I would bet 3 have been him escaping pressure and throwing it away. A few drops.

Duke's OL can be exploited by our guys.

Well, so much for not being able to throw deep.....not a lot of drop off for the Blue Devils. Only been watching on and off, but they wont be an easy out.

That's not why they benched him. He struggled in week 1 and the other QB performed well so Baylor has been going with a QB rotation ever since.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Gotcha - I just saw he was lights out last week, and played well when I watched last year (WVU/TT) so I thought it was a no-brainer over a guy from NCST who never came close to playing there.

Also, Duke:

Where can I find Duke football fan (lol) hot takes about their S&C coaching staff?

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

Jesus... looks like the bug that got UNC last year moved on to it's next victim. Truly shitty.

Michigan struggling against that vaunted SMU defense.

Former Hokies OL coach Jeff Grimes now the OC at BYU. Calling a hell of a game on the road against Wisconsin. Happy for him, always thought highly of him.

Alright guys. We are overranked as fuck. The FSU game didnt mean fuck all. We have no idea where we atand as a team. We could go 5 lises to 0 loses. No idea where we stand.

EDIT: Yayyy beer. Not very tactful, what yall don't say fuck, but I stand by my opinion. The FSU win was basically beating up on the worst team in the conference and then we crushed an FCS team. I literally have no idea where we stand as a team.

Alright?

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

You can say that about a lot of the teams in the top 25. It takes at least 5 or 6 weeks to really get a good sample size for ranking teams.

Seriously, it's his opinion.

Last I checked, people were allowed to have those here.

Given how FSU has played since, VT is still a bit unproven.

Did you forget the /s

Koastal,

Couple things:

1. It was also our first game of the season, in a very hostile, humid, night environment. So all things said, we performed quite well (as a team). You can argue that our offense underperformed, while others will say Fuente called a conservative game given our defense's performance. Also, FSU's defense is no joke.

2. This game was at Syracuse, where we got embarrassed as a 3TD favorite (IIRC) last time we played there. Let's not forget that.

3. We didn't lose this weekend. Right?

Nah, FSU is some dogshit. Basically snatched the win from an FCS team. I stand by FSU being a bottom 3 team in the ACC.

I think the win there was a good win, but it was against a very bad team. We just didnt know how bad they were. Like this FSU team is gonna miss a bowl for sure.

But yes, we didnt lose so thats a good thing i guess.

2. These effect games don't work. Alumni (especially older) are always going to wear maroon in the west stands. The maroon effect is the only one that really works. And it's intimidating as hell. Which brings me to...

3. Actually, if everyone stripped in the stands there's a fair chance the other team would be so distracted that it wouldn't matter how well VT played they'd win easily. Bold strategy. It's crazy enough that it just might work.

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

That is a great play for North Texas but, man, I feel for the Arkansas players because they would have been flagged and/or ejected if they had blown that guy up.

Yeah, at least in high school that's unsportsmanlike conduct. Faking being done with the play is stupid and dangerous. Half the players playing football and the other half thinking the ball is dead is a lovely way to get things really screwed up.

Unfortunately I feel like the combination of us not playing and FSU crapping the bed again is going to result in a pretty sizeable drop in the rankings for us this week.

Meh. We'll be ranked in the teens and had one less chance for someone important to get hurt in a game that lowers our overall strength of schedule.

In the human polls, we will only drop behind teams that have impressive wins. The voters have long forgotten that our son over FSU is the reason they inflated our ranking in the first place.

Even if we do drop a bunch, we have all season to make up for it. And it doesn't really matter much as long as we still have a number next to our name, unless we're fighting for a top 4 spot at the end of the year.

Miami didn't drop when they canceled the Toledo game so neither can we.

You might be overestimating how intelligent the ranking system is. Generally speaking, if you don't lose you don't drop unless somebody has a really impressive win that causes them to shoot up.

LSU is about to do just that.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

They were already ahead of us.

I know, I meant they'll jump up even more in the rankings with that big win.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

They're already ranked ahead of us though?

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

My goodness, Ohio is bad. Methinks UVA feels pretty good this week only to come crashing back to reality in the ACC. Can't hate Bronco's scheduling philosophy though: looking good is looking good, even against putrid competition.

Is what they're doing "looking good"?

I do agree that scheduling weak opponents and just trying to make a bowl is what they need to do.

I mean, they went to extraordinary lengths to keep this game on the schedule, as it's one of their "gimme" wins for bowl eligibility.

Notre Dame better stave off shitting the bed for another couple of weeks.

BYU just went up 24-21 with 10 minutes to go. I'm not sure Wisconsin is a noticeably better team in this one.

And then BYU got a sack on 3rd down to force a punt. Upset alert!

I'd like to point out that whisky was a 23.5 point favorite in this one. The over/under was 50...one of those lines was pretty spot on.

BYU, wow.

Their coach ices the Wisconsin kicker with two of his three timeouts, and the kicker misses, giving BYU the game.

That's a coach.

BYU's OC is Jeff Grimes...

Both sides of the ball looked a bit more physical than Wisconsin.

I would love to know what they saw on film to know that Gaglionone was a kicker they could ice like that. Maybe they just thought they'd give it a whirl?

Awesome win, great coaching.

I love how he took two, and then the kicker had to wonder if he'd take a third.

You'd have to be ice man for that not to mess with you a little bit.

But it is the job.

Wisconsin at the end of the game: they are too good, we can't take any Mormon

Dude's doing pretty well for himself for a guy whose last job was a coordinator position at Oregon State.

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

That probably knocks them out of the playoff. The Big 10 West isn't good enough to absorb this.

Eh, they play both Michigan and Penn State. If they end up 12-1 they're probably in.

FUCK WISCONSIN!!!! WOHOOO!!!!!

Now can TCU beat the Buckeyes and make it a real bad day for the Big 10

It's going to happen. Justice for those nozzles.

Maybe FSU will stop stealing our croots now? 🤔

Our D is going to have a field day with Perkins (UVA). He really struggles in the passing game (don't let the numbers fool you. Mostly skill guys making big plays). And though he is fast in the open field, he isn't very quick.

Question for you smart football minds:

Does prepping for different "handed" QBs change how the OL plays? When Alabama swaps out Tua (lefty) and Hurts (righty), do they have to flip their assignments mentally now that the QB's blind side is the opposite?

More an issue on OL for blindsided protection.

And wide receivers. Spiral is clockwise for righties, counterclockwise for lefties. Might not sound like much, but when you're used to clockwise, a counterclok zip from Vick might throw you off. But Vick threw it 300mph too, so...........

I was never the athlete that we have a WR (hell, I wasn't the athlete that we get to kick or punt), so my impression may be a bit different than a real WR. A good friend in high school was our lefty QB. He had a good enough arm that the Mets drafted him as a pitcher. He threw a beautiful ball but even when just playing catch with a football, his throws were weird to catch and felt like they were going to spin out of my hands, since the ball spun the wrong way.

It's so convenient that the Alabama Ole Miss game ended just in time for the OSU TCU kickoff.

How is North Texas beating Arkansas by 27 points?

Because Arky sucks. Did you see the punt return for a TD?

No but given the final score I trust that it was embarrassing for Arkansas

I posted this in the week 1 thread not realizing it had been bumped for some reason but the plays TCU is running look so familiar and I just hope we can run this offense as well as they do. They are going at a ridiculous pace.

TCU lost this game the moment the WR held for no reason and took the TD off the board

That was such an unnecessary hold

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Not so fast! TCU is running circles around anOSU right now. If they can keep up this tempo, they are going to wear out anOSU's defense. OSU's offense might start to press to try to keep up. TCU has the speed to keep up.

I can't believe that almost worked.

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

This Ohio State-TCU game is taking what seems like forever. Which is about as long as it took Urban Meyer to admit his wide receivers coach was abusing his wife.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

Nah, it's over now.

TCU's wheels have fallen off.

That was just my effort to jinx TCU and spark the comeback.

Nice job!

TCU in one gif.

They have one hell of a pit crew

Dallas... we have a football game.

I turned off the game and started playing Rocket League again. TCU: you're welcome

LMAO, an OSU player goes down and Fowler asks Herbstreit, "No way that could be an attempt to slow down the game." Herbie shrugs it off and keeps talking about his Bucks.

Eff Ohio State. They can sit on a nail and rotate.

Pretty clear that everybody does it.

Including Florida State.

But like Taggart says "I guess it's part of the game now."

I'm a bit surprised the Canelo-GGG judges went the way they did.

Utah almost had a fat guy pick 6.

Damn AzSt lost because of a targeting call. Receiver gets mauled on a hail Mary-like play. Looked like he caught it anyway but while evaluating the targeting call on replay, they saw he didn't.

There is no reason not to target a player in that scenario. Targeting should be a spot foul.

I mean, pretty sure the player has to miss the first half of their next game, but yeah it seems pretty shitty.

So if it was just PI instead of targeting nothing changes. Heck, even the NFL has targeting as 15 yds. 1 play causing a rule change, just because a team didn't tie it up on a hail mary pass seems like a bit of an over reaction.

Jeez reesejenks520 at least use a different username...

I've been made! The jig is up!!
