We are wearing metallic orange helmets. Which jersey and pants uniforms? (Did I miss the announcement?)

Who needs uniforms?

Play ball!

The right ones can be pretty important

Dont Know which Uni's ECU will wear

Looks like maroon jersey and white maroon pants based off of the VT equipment Twitter.

Edit...I fucked up.

please, God, let us blow them out.

Haven't seen this broadcast crew combination lately, I don't think.

Being the ACC Network game of the week 2 of 4 times is something, right?

Just woke up at a house in Charlottesville because one of my best friends from high school is getting married, in Charlottesville, on a UVA home game day. Something only a UVA grad would do... to be fair his future wife told me last night they had it this weekend because the two of us Hokie groomsmen had told them if they had the wedding on the Bristol weekend, we wouldn't have come.

Have fun today in Blacksburg folks, beat the crap out of ECU. Also, go Chippewas

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

To follow this up we just walked around "grounds" for the past hour. I saw one group tailgating in a completely empty parking lot. By group I mean 3 people sitting in chairs behind a car wearing orange. There is no buzz, no excitement and nobody giving a crap. It's almost sad. Makes me appreciate Blacksburg and the game day electricity that you can feel in the air every Saturday all the more! We've certainly got a special environment for football and college overall. Go Hokies!

When we're losing some of these 4/5* talents to the Boohoos maybe part of our recruiting pitch should involve a walk around of a UVA tailgate

Let's Go...

I'll be driving to NoVA from HR with my 14-month-old and maybe my wife pending how sick she feels.

Any radio stations for listening to the broadcast? No XM/Sirius radio.

You may need to check the IMG list on HokieSports.com and bookmark or print it out (assuming you're on the road already). Not sure your phone situation, but the broadcast should be on TuneIn app.

WNIS 790 should carry you for a while; they also stream, but probably blacked out.

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

The TuneIn app worked really well. Dropped a couple times due to buffering in 3G areas but once we got up to DC the radio was strong enough for the remainder of the drive. Only downside was accidentally streaming the ECU broadcast at first. Figured it out quickly and switched to Burnop/Laaser. Wife now wants to mute the TV and listen to the radio at home.

Even considering the game, listening to them was the most entertaining experience I've had watching a Hokie game away from Lane.

AM 910 in the Richmond area.

Download the HokiesXtra app. You can listen to the live stream on there the whole way

Even though the game is on the ACC Network, will watchespn still be streaming the game as well or will it be blacked out

"Welcome to the Terror Dome." -- Corey Moore

If you are in the ACC's footprint, the game will very likely be blacked out. This being said, you should not need cable (as a cord cutter). Stream through the ACC Network (linked above) or click here for what antenna station to tune into. Hope this helps!

There was no watchespn blackout week 1 for me, even though it was on locally. I think the new deal with ESPN that created a ACC Network as part of ESPN3 might have done away with that.

Lets hope for a good turnout that sticks around after halftime homecoming votes. I want to see an old fashioned beat down.

Very nice.

The HighTechs are way hotter than our cheerleaders

Of course I talk to myself, sometimes I need expert advice.

I remember, way back in the day, buddy & me would go to the atrocious VT basketball games regularly, Basically to give the winning opponents a hard time, and the enjoy the HighTechs.

In the early days, I think they were pretty risque. Seems like they've toned it down since, but, yeah, they often seem to outshine the cheer squad.

Hey Emma. What do you think of ECU?

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Listening to College GameDay as I type this and I realize how far off the radar we are. But I'm at peace with it because of where we seem to be headed. Let's win this game today, which would mean winning the games we were supposed to win, let's get out healthy for the bye week, and let's see what both coaches come up with after having 2 weeks to prep for UNC.

We have a ways to go, but look how far we've come! Get loud in Lane today if you are at the game! I want my TV to ROCK!!!

Go Hokies!!

Yea, we've been way off the national radar for 5 years or so. It's hard to swallow, but I get it. When you've been a .500, middle of the ACC team for several years, and you aren't a traditional power, there just isn't much to talk about nationally.

Realistically, we're much closer to a Kansas State (in terms of national rep) than we'd like to accept.

Hopefully, Coach Fuente gets us back into the top 25 regularly. I definitely see the potential and like what he's building.

Anybody know if the ACC Network checks location of your stream? I'm in Ecuador and haven't tried this yet.

I've relied on the radio stream through IMG previously, so I can always fall back on that.

Works in California. Not sure if it works outside the US though.

Always choose joy.

Have you tried hotspot shield or a similar program?

How's everyone feeling about UF-UT? I know a Tennessee win looks better for us and I don't really like either team, but I hope Florida beats the hell out of them. Can they both lose?

"The workhorse again... OOOOOHHHHHHH... Terrell Skinner just got flattened!"

I want Tenn to lose bad. We should have beat them. As far as how the Tenn loss looks for us it doesnt matter we arent in the running for the playoffs take it away Jim Mora:

I can't root for Tennessee in anything....I just cant.

I know it looks better for us with a UT win, but I fucking hate the Vols. Go Gators!!!

UT will get exposed sooner or later when they play a solid team that can prevent mistakes. Should've been by us (those mistakes), but UF can certainly do so this weekend.

This is it. If we win, we're good again. If we lose, we suck. No inbetweens. GO HOKIES.

Oh Boy Skillet

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

Slightly off topic but I was watching the ACC pregame show and the talking heads were making their picks for the Atlantic division champion. Apparently Clemson is the predominant favorite due to the quality of Brent Venables defense.

I found it mildly amusing that his claim to fame (according to Wikipedia) is being one of five finalists for the 2006 Broyles Award. That particular year's award was won by none other than our own Bud Foster.

I just love how short the memory and attention span is of most media members.

I think Buds best years are still ahead and I can't wait to see it.

GO HOKIES!!!!

All maroon uniforms (except lids) for an orange effect game. Bold move Cotton...

I kinda really like it

I like it too...but maybe not for orange effect

The more I look at it the more I like it. On my low def small screen TV (sick kids have the big screen and Disney movies) the helmets look almost like chameleon paint, transitioning from orange to maroon depending on the light. Assuming it's not just my crappy TV, I think it's a sweet look.

I hate it . We did the same thing against Ohio State. It makes no sense.

Fans you wear orange for orange effect but team you wear maroon how stupid is that

Semper Fi

they dont have orange jerseys this year

So long as we get the ECU monkey off our back, we could be wearing the Hokie Tracks helmet and I wouldn't care

HTHokie93

So has your position softened in light of the spectacular beatdown we witnessed?

Watchespn was blacked out in my area but that ACC link had my back.

we're both crying.

Probably one of the most beautiful punt returns I've seen since Eddie Royal.

Even though, y'know, Stroman's no good at returns or anything.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

What a run. Its pure poetry in motion.

Who was it that called Stroman running one back while wearing Beamer's 25?

I owe you a drink.

That was pretty. He waited for his blocks to set up and everything.

We put the K in Kwality

Permanent number change for Stro. Just keep that 25. Hell yeah!

“I turned down 12 other opportunities. You know what I mean?” - Fuente

That was a bomb of a punt, dude outkicked his coverage. Also great awareness by one of our guys not to get a block in the back penalty right after Stro made the catch

Logan 3:16

I think that was #20.

That was Newsome, and he pulled up JUST in time. I noted that too.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

AND THATS WHY HES WEARING 25 TODAY!!!

Breath, breathe

Hokies, Local Soccer, AFC Ajax, Ravens

One of the gunners fell down right after the snap. I had a good feeling when I seen that. GO HOKIES!

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

The ACC Network feed is really crisp on my iPad.

And kudos to the broadcast for not only pointing out #25 and the significance, but giving us a shot of Beamer #25 after that beautiful score

How was that not PI? Receivers were blocking Edmonds while ball was in air (forward, screen)?

We put the K in Kwality

PI does not apply if the ball is caught behind the line of scrimmage.

Same reason Mook wasn't flagged against Tennessee when he tackled the receiver before the ball got there.

This is the exact play I thought of when this came up.

The Mook play was a lateral, so different rule. But I get your point.

We put the K in Kwality

2nd time that ECU probably should have caught a long ball. I'm a little more nervous right now than I was going into the game. Special teams aside, I don't feel like we look as sharp as we did last week.
*Edit* But you can't complain about two stops in two drives. It's just an un-justifiable feeling that I have.

They were making those catches the last two years

A new season...new hope

I see where you're coming from, but this is the game Bud wants to play. Getting good DL pressure, taking away the run and short passing game, and forcing them to bomb it down the field for low-percentage chances is exactly what he wants to do. ECU may hit a few of those big plays, but it's not an effective way to run the offense.

QB contain!

What's
Important
Now

Lets go D!!

Getting pressure with three pass rushers is huge.

"And then the real chess match began." - Justin Fuente

This QB's completion percentage is a little off his season average as of right now. Our D is better than SCar, I'm confident in that.

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

They got a first down, fire Foster! /s

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

KCCO

Haha first time he over threw him so progress

A new season...new hope

Except for the 3 or 4 times it happened against Liberty. That deep ball just isn't consistent enough (read: at all) to be effective.

I wish they'd replay the 3rd and short play.

Same here. I thought forward motion would have got it?

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

dang, shouldve been 6

Evans/the offense just can't get anything going.

On the plus side, Ludwig is averaging 47.5 yards/punt.

when he doesnt hit someone in the back with the ball lol

It's ok ACC Network. I didn't want to see that play anyway.

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

Why didn't go for it. Give it to Rodgers up the middle for like 3 yards!

Who is this RoDgers you speak of?

punting is fine with our defense. zero reason to give them a chance at a short field

Logan 3:16

Offense has started off a bit cold...

Good lord our defense looks evil.

"And then the real chess match began." - Justin Fuente

These open recievers are not nice...we've been lucky so far.

Defense looked great on that series! Defense of old didn't settle for 0yd plays, they always looked to drive teams backwards. I love seeing teams punt on 4th-and-15 without any penalties.

Great field position. Let's get it going on offense.

"And then the real chess match began." - Justin Fuente

Chuck straight up destroyed that dude. Glad to see he got up

Taking away the first read and Evans is in trouble

What is up with our players getting hit by punts?

We have some good running backs...it would be nice to just run and pound once in a while instead of doing sweeps and options.

Hard for some folks to admit but it's the truth. I don't care as long as we score and win.

Mitchell Ludwig seems to be aiming for Terrell Edmunds. He's hit him in the back twice on punts.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

So the receiver is allowed to hug the DB now?

"And then the real chess match began." - Justin Fuente

Looked just like that iconic photo of Rodgers trying to get his first TD.

You guys have to excuse me, there's obviously a delay on my feed.

I'm at work and had to pause the feed to go help someone, so I'm a bit behind too. At this point I'm about 1 ECU 3 and out/punt behind at the moment, but should be able to catch up and use the "Go Live" button at half time.

the offense was a little late getting to the game but they seem to have arrived now

So the receiver is allowed to stiff arm the DB right before he catches the ball too?

Seriously. Fayscon was right in his hip pocket and that last second little push gave him just enough separation.

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

So I guess we are not going to see offensive pass interference today uh.

Do you think it's difficult for guys like Fayscon to change techniques from DB coach to DB coach? Just wondering if in the heat of the moment in a game if these guys revert back to not looking for the ball...

He was looking for the ball.

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

Yeah on replay I saw that. Disregard comment.

bend don't break

Defense is swarming to the ball

I noticed this too. Even on incomplete passes near LOS two or three guys diving for the ball just in case. Love the aggression.

What the hell? Am I in the Twilight Zone?!?

Well I was prepared to say thanks for the jinx.... but apparently it didn't jinx anything

Logan 3:16

Our red zone production is just outstanding.

I wonder if anyone but Zay Jones will catch a ball for ECU? He has all 5 completions right now.

No

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

Seeing Adonis pick up that blocked kick and return for a TD would have been great, but I like these results better. Our offense established chemistry, moved the ball, scored a TD, AND gave the defense a good breather.

So the offense just deflates the ball now ?

This is so awesome. I've waiting for this feeling for over a decade and a half. I feel like our offense can score at will and I feel like our defense can do the same. I'm so effing happy thus far this season! I just hope we keep it up against increasingly better talent.

Are we going to Boston College ECU? PLEASE DO!

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

I thought that tweet posted earlier was going to jinx the defense. Big Timmy saw that it didn't. You just placed the hex. You better hope Tim Settle saves you too!

9 minutes left in the 2nd qtr and its 28-0 bro! LoL. Is this real life?

A VT receiver going up over an ECU defender and hauling in the catch. It's like a bizarro world version of our last couple of ECU games.

I'm seriously so giddy and excited right now, I don't know what to do with myself.

Yes yes you should.

holy crap...28-0

"We have no offense today."

Heh.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

This first half has been everything VT football should be. Yeah, we started out a bit slow but damn, these guys are playing out of their minds. Offense rolling, defense is annihilating everyone, and special teams, well, it's vintage.

Wait, VT can execute and score on a RB screen? Times are a changin

.....

The skill position blocking was executed perfectly on that play.

Someone pinch me.

This is amazing...just amazing

Great play design!!!

"Don't go to, go through"

What am I watching?

I love the fact that it is obvious that J. Evans knows how to lead the offense. It is great to see this confidence in our QB.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

That was great blocking by Bradshaw on what was a just beautifully designed and executed play. Watching this game with a perma-grin. Such a fun team to watch.

This does not get old. An actual offense. A fundamentally sound defense. Special teams that makes big plays. In Blacksburg. On homecoming. Life is fucking amazing right now.

I thought I saw a complete VT football team effort last week against BC.... granted this is just the 1st half, but wow this is an even better showing.... against a legitimate offense to boot!!

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Okay defense, I think you need to look out for Zay Jones.

Regarding the improvement in our offense from Q1 to Q2, and I don't remember ever saying this before, but it's possible that our OC is making in-game adjustments. Weird, right? I know other teams do that, it seems like we are finally joining that fad. /s

Just so wonderful...to see competent, fluid, and confident offensive play! Oh and lets not forget COMPETENT COACHING!! Almost teary eyed just soaking it in...lol.

-Being aggressive, being tough...that's the Virginia Tech way.

We're going all Boston College on the pirates thus far... and I hope we run the score up to 90.

It's almost halftime, wrap that shit up, rub some dirt on it, and get back to it!

Nooooo I could stand it being a bit closer game if this is the tradeoff.

Jarvis is my co-pilot.

Evans very smart to go down there. If he's feeling it in his ankle, better to stop the game, let the med staff check him out, and let Motley have time to get checked in.

Evans looks like hes in good spirits so I wouldn't assume anything too bad. Maybe sit until the beginning of the 3rd, or even the rest of the game. I don't think he's out long term though

I hope you're right.

Jarvis is my co-pilot.

31-0 with the D and special teams going full bore, let Evans rest it

Well, he's walking around, so that's good

They've ran 3 KOs out of the end zone. Two of them they were tackled shy of the 20 and the third tackled at the 25. KO coverage has been great too!!

Those Hokie cowboy boots are hot to death

Mook just made up for that slot receiver getting by him with that QB hit!

WE JUST RELEASED THE KRAKEN!!!

Evans doesn't look to be in too much pain, which is good. There's a bye next week, too.

Sucks that we're just boosting UT's SOS right now. Especially if they win against Florida today.... ugh, what could've been.

Admittedly I don't know too much about Florida right now, but I think UT looses that game.

Florida's d line is legit legit. and UT's o line is...shaky. That right there I think will be a big factor in the game, but on the other side of things...Florida lost their starting qb to injury, and their starting a qb that previously played for Purdue

I'm actually more worried about Tenn tanking our SOS

Love this. I want ECU to come to dread this game so much that they cancel the series. This is a good start
