This feels like the most important game that we have played in a good 4 years.

I want to see this team flat out dominate Pitt.

*but will settle for a WIN.

Outstanding.

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

This will give us a good Insight on how coach Fuente is able to keep the team focused and motivated after a down week then an up week... Now Pitt.
It is amazing we could be at six wins at this point in the season and be Bowl eligible without concerns..

I always put my game face on when the open thread begins.

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

Does anybody know how to listen to the pregame show on the radio? I've tried 105.3 The Bear (NRV) and Fox Sports 910 (Richmond) with iHeartRadio but I can only seem to get music and Jay Mohr, respectively.

Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to have a couple drinks and listen to Laaser and Burnop on my front porch before the game.

Get the "Hokies xtra " app or Hokies "Gameday App" both will carry every Tech radio show, pregame, TTL etc.

The "official" online listening is the TuneIn app. Also the HokiesXtra app has the live stream scheduled for 17:30 (and reminds me to listen to the Kubota Kickoff show before every VT game).

The HokiesXtra (VT GameDay?) app also has loading the bus, Tech Talk Live, the press conference, Sounds of GameDay, and other Hokies media under the Media tab.

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

Man, coming off that Thursday night experience in Blacksburg last week, I can't wait to get this kickoff going. It feels like it's been a couple of weeks since we played.

Not gonna lie... Been watching this all day at the office and am so fired up right now, I'm about to rip everything off the walls and go screaming down the hallway. Look forward to the Hokies adding some content tonight for BilldozerVT to use next year!

Time to crack into the Castle Stormer by Granite Falls. May need something a wee bit heavy tonight.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Granite Falls? Can't believe I've never heard of it! Thought I was pretty well-versed on Charlotte-area beer but clearly I've got some drinking to do. I see it's near Hickory - which are their best beers? My bro lives in Charlotte so I'll make him a list of stuff to get for thanksgiving...

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

They must be newer. I'd not heard of them either until seeing a 6 on the shelf this week. The name caught my eye, and it seemed appraise for playing Pitt on the road, so I took a closer look. The Redhead playing the bagpipes on the bottle also caught my eye, so I kept looking. Scotch Ale with 9% alcohol also rubbed me the right way, so I bought a couple. Can't say I would have said thats a Scotch ale from the taste, but I enjoyed it. Light for Scotch or a nine, with hints of chocolate. I would get it again. Will also try some of their other beers now that I've had one I like, and let you know if I think there are other winners, but I am biased toward high gravity.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I'm going to hold off on looking at flights to Orlando in early December until after the game, but I really want that to be something I need to worry about.

Brentwood Academy (TN) made the #2 Top Play on Sportscenter just now. Cool hail mary tipped by defense then offense before caught in the end zone.

Mention it because I think I've seen TKPers and we have a recruit from there recently.

It would be working to Bucky Rogers

Yes let me read this. 3 guys around Rodgers let me shovel pass to him...again.

Can we just run normal plays please? At least to get things started?

Ok. Lesson: discontinue fwd shovel passes tonight until you're up by at least 3 scores. Wasted.

Ayeee...look at you. High five dude.

Gobble gobble, gobble gobble.

I hate this play calling so far, could be 14-0 instead of 6-0. If they get a TD they are up by 1 with the extra point. I hope this is not like Syracuse!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Can we throw the ball in the damn red zone? March down the field throwing it and then we stop.

Don't run that play please

Wasted opportunities ....whyyyyyyy!!!

So, let's go ahead and burn that shovel pass, yeah? Everybody cool with that?

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

I actually love the shovel pass play in general, but it obviously isn't working.

Throw it to Ford or Hodges in the red zone.

Hodges, Ford, Phillips, Cunningham, Deablo, Carroll...it's a good game to be using all of these guys or a qb sneak but not shovel passes!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

I'm assuming they saw something in film to do that twice . But clearly it's not working

My thoughts exactly.

Once I'm Mr. Beat, only miss a beat.

When the box is stacked what the hell good is a shovel pass behind the line. Might as well be a delayed handoff.

"These people are losing their minds!"

More good kick coverage.

Alright Peterman. Prepare to get FOSTERED!

The one thing Pitt's defense excels at - stopping the run. So what do you do? Try to force it up the middle, in the red zone, where they can load the box even more. Ugh....

Get em D

At least they turned the turnover into points, even if it was only 3.

Optimism can be fun, right?

Lucky break with the penalty.

We'll take it.

"Well, I guess we can discount anything good that happens in this game because Peterman is cooold" - UNC fans

For some reason on the Yahoo sports app, the playcast replaced Evans name with Ken Ekanem for some reason. Looked funny

The playcalling on O sometimes baffles me.

You have a 6'7" receiver vs. the worst pass defense in the nation and you choose to throw 2 inside shovel passes to your FB??

Stick em with the Jab before you go for the uppercut?

Come on D!

Throw that shuttle pass out of the playbook.

Thanks for that forty yard illegal man penalty.

MOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKKKKK

Must be your TV.

They look good on mine.

my parents said the same thing on their tv about last week.

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

Nice pick! Now lets turn that in to 7! We can't keep settling for 3. Get far enough ahead and Pitt will have to go against the grain, become one dimensional, and pass.

Wish it was 21-0, but I'll settle for 13-0 please.

Something that was big besides the INT was the tackle Mihota made on Conner. I think Dadi would have bounced off or let Conner go for a few more in years past. Vinny's just too big

Great job by Peterman finding a wide open Mook there.

TD PLEASE?!

lol he fell

We gotta make them pay for loading the box

Wow looked like a lot of defensive holding on the throw to Bucky.

Yeah, for some reason Bucky got a step on him, then the defender got a step on Bucky. Weird...

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Or not...?

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Well they have interfered twice now with no call.

First 2 plays should always be PASSING PLAYS TONIGHT!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Great VT bounce there.

If we lose this game, we deserve to for stalling out three times in perfect field position

Pitt is making every mistake in the book and we are taking advantage of nothing...

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

EVERYTHING has gone our way and we are only up 6-0. Wonder what happens when the ball starts to bounce the other way?

How the f*ck do you not get touchdowns right there? What is this bullsh*the they're calling?!? I mean d*mn!

Keep this first quarter in mind when the defense starts to give up points later in the game. We've left 15 points on the field.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

While I have picked on Bucky in the past for drops you have to try and throw him the ball more than once.

Is this Pitt or Georgia Tech?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

The defense is on fire!

Anybody else keep seeing this guy when Palmer mentions Peterman

I keep wondering if he bought some of Kramer's stories.

holy shit defense!

Half the distance is about 6 inches.

EDIT: That's what SHE said.

This reminds me of a beamer team of old

Pass Interference.

James Connor is strong, good lord.

These refs are paid off. No excuses for three non calls on grabs

Sources telling me that Jesse Palmer is going to propose to Bucky Hodges at halftime.

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

Okay, time to start fucking mugging them. That's some bullshit.

Well, apparently only 1 ref is watching tonight, the line judge.

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Terrible referees tonight!!! Awful not calling any pass interferences!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

That makes up for the pass interference from the play before.

I'll accept it.

Thank god for pitt shooting themselves.

HOLDING!

Wow, we have gotten lucky on two big plays called back because of penalties. (and gotten screwed on a couple of no calls too.)

-comment deleted-

Pitt is gonna kill themselves with penalties. I'm cool with that.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

And another hold that was ignored leads to an INT.....

Edit: bailed out by Pitt stupidity thank God

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

That no-call pisses me off. Ridiculous.

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

Wow, talk about cutting it close on the game clock.

Perfect.

T Mac is just not getting it tonight.

Great game management, Evans

Dodging bullets like Neo

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

We're winning the game and I'm frustrated.

Offense needs to get in the damn end zone.

Pitt #5 wears short shorts

Jesse said what I was thinking - how is that even legal? I've seen the kids trim the knee pad and roll the pants under, but those are basically compression shorts with thigh pads.

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

That's 14 pts left on the f*king field. Can we PLEASE get 1 f*king TD on this possession!? FFS!

Well that quarter was ALL VT. We better hope the offense starts to click. The tides have to turn eventually and we should be up a few scores when it happens.

Let's hope with the change of direction, the downfield passes start landing.

Statistically dominated; however, 6-0. Hopefully we can get it going on offense.

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

Need to score when we have the wind.

Ford!!!!!!

How was that not pass interference before?

Because pass interference isn't in the rule book for this game. #ACCRules-Not

wow

WOW

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

Love the concentration there.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Isaiah Ford you a bad, bad man

Will that change to an INT?

Edit: No way

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

That wind is blowing hard. You could hear it in the ref's mic.

Ford did not give up on that!

Evans is looking pretty shaky so far.

Balls seem to be floating on him today. Maybe cause its so windy there.

Yeah... if the wind is that bad, it explains a lot.

FORD!

Dude keeps calling Isaiah Ford "Motley"

The defender was motley.

ohhh.

Damn. Even Lawson can't get any playing time on the opposing team.

Was that the definition of a 50/50 ball?

not gonna lie, that was just weird.

That had to stand. Now score

OOOOOHHHH! OOOOOHHHH! OOOOOOOHHHH! OOOOOHHHH! OOOOOOHHHHHH! OOOOOHHHH!

STICK IT IN! STICK IT IN! STICK IT IN!

Great 'catch'!

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

Ford is a dude.

How about a touchdown this time?

Don't worry guys, Pitt may have one of the top defenses in the country, but their offense is awful.

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Also, if we could stop getting mugged by DBs, that'd be pretty neat.

Can we throw it in the redzone please!

Right? A nice TE release w/ a short hard pass minimizes any wind effects.

So painful

I'm going to f'ing lose it

THROW THE BALL IN THE RED ZONE!!!!!

Why, why, why Continue to run into the TEETH OF THE DEFENSE IN THE REDZONE???????

WTF THROW THE FUCKING BALL ITS 5 YARDS TO SCORE

"These people are losing their minds!"

Predictable.

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

Live by the run die by the run, unless someone sees stats it looks like a close game...is what it is I don't understand or get the play calling so many WR's and we do qb runs and hand offs to the RB's. I wouldn't be shocked if we lose WR commits because we do not use the talent we have!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

LOL, no doubt. Fucking stall again in the red zone. Hopefully the defense plays lights out all night....

FTFY

Passing keeps getting us down their territory but we keep running the ball when we get in red zone . No roll out play actions ?

Watch Pitt march down the field and score a TD the next time they get the ball and all of a sudden it is anyone's game.

Their offense is normally good, our defense is playing lights out.

Dammit cornelson, pitt had studied the film. They're looking for Evans, throw the ball.

Play calling in the red zone sucks so far

Didn't they say in August..."Throw to score, run to win"? What the f*ck is going on???

Only thing I will say is the wind looks real bad. Evans had one sure int overturned to penalty and another one snatched back by Ford. I get wanting him to pass, but maybe it's not the best option. Getting a little more creative with the run game would be nice. Not sure how much I like all of the runs up the middle.

True but those were mid range and deep balls. We're getting the ball to the 5 yd line. I still think he can throw a 6 yard laser just fine in the wind.

"These people are losing their minds!"

Slye going for that #25.

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

Shovel pass would've worked

Defense is going to have the get the touchdowns tonight. Glad Foster didn't listen to Fuente when he said you don't have to play perfect defense!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Although you have to worry about the wind affecting field goals too.

I'm hoping JF has something he is seeing and shaping the game for cause otherwise O don't know what is with the red zone play calling

It's windy as heck there. I'm Ok with play calling. Corn is calling a game based on their D and conditions.

sol-a-rex

All I can say in our defense is the short field actually helps this Pitt D. We get less vertical and the front 7 - their CLEAR strength - can neutralize our OL.

But gimmeabreakweshouldbeupbythreescores

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

We need to run the RPO TE drag rout we scored on the first TD at UNC.

Gotta sick feeling we're going to pay for not scoring TDs.

If I have to hear the announcer remind us that Bucky Hodges is 6'7 one more time before we even attempt to throw him a pass inside the ten I may throw my remote. Completely ridiculous that Pitt is one big drive from being back in this game

Damn, c'mon defense.

In the first quarter Pitt:

Ran 6 plays
12 total yard
4 penalties
2 turnovers

Only down 9-0. Of course their defense looking good against us at the moment. Can't help but have a little bit of that sinking feeling even though defense playing great.

Ok guys I just realized I didn't have the right shirt on, i took care if it.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Woody did a great job fighting off that block.

Okay offense drive and score a td this time.

At least getting a punt instead of the pick we can get a lot of yards before kicking the field goal

I don't care if we kick 12 FGs as long as Pitt keeps up this "ALLSTATE cold hands performance".

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

Terrell Edmunds on that last play. But didn't catch it

Also on our runs we need to get to hitting the hole rather than running these delayed runs. Too often we are letting Pitt get behind the play with how many men they stack the box with

WTF this is mind-boggling

Semper Fi

Hodges with no YAC! But a great catch.

Oh and Palmer, height, drink!

Well the pitt defense is good.Evans has a nice touch tonight so far.

Every snap is low and it's costing us time.

Game callers are just as biased as I've seen. ESPN and the ref's hate hate hate seeing VT do good!

"I am awfully proud of the way our team played, the way they prepared, and, ultimately the way they believed."

Please read community guidelines before down voting...

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

I think that catch is going to get overturned. Looked like he bobbled it when his elbow hit out of bounds.

Yea elbow was down out before he gained control I thinks

Is every single snap low?

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

Seems like it .smh

Yes. 100% and needs to get fixed.

sol-a-rex

I'm just saying, if that sideline pass against Syracuse was a catch, that's a catch too. Different situations, but still.

In reality, they will over turn the call on the field. Incomplete.

I hate when instant replay is potentially inconvenient for us.

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

don't we all, lol

Our line is kind of a get in your way OL vs. a we're gonna block you group.

No matter the call, I'll take it over an incomplete shuffle pass.

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

coming back

That slow mo replay made it look closer to a catch. I still think we don't get the call.

Elbow was in.long review is not our friend. Incomplete

Hate to be that guy but doesn't seem like he had control before his back went out of bounds.

Is this different from the Syracuse catch and the UNC catch from last year?

Dude, that is a catch. (I am not bias. I promise.)

Thats complete 99/100 times with Ford.

So what happened to the flag on the play after the replay overturned the catch?

And there it is. It should be 21+ - 0 right now with Pitt knocking on the door.

Don't even care. Fuck the offense. Same thing as Syracuse. You KNEW they were going to get points and the offense needed to keep up. This shit is on the offense so far.

I feel like Loeffler has been coaching the offense tonight.

Time to get it going.

Everyone on offense except maybe Ford and Bucky should be ashamed that they let Pitt back in this game, coaches included.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

I blame the coaches not the players. Our play calling in the red zone has been god awful.

Good point. Cornelson has not put them in position to succeed.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

plenty of game left, we all knew this would be a close one, lets respond and score!

Peterman literally put his nuts in Alexander'a face. We need to put his ass on the ground for the whole second half.

With all that we have had and decided to run into the teeth of their defense and now we are only up a two point lead. If we don't score on this drive, and a td, look for seeeious momentum swing to Pitt. Plus they get the ball after half.

It's 100% Fwen-tay. Jesse Palmer is incapable of pronouncing easy things.

Running it up the middle still?

Why?

What the actual fuck is this playcalling? Run between the tackles again. Yeah. THat'll do it.

Have we tried a run not up the middle yet?

OK, I guess it was so that Phillips would be wide open on second down.

LOLOLOL more runs up the middle. Hey, hand the ball to the running back and let him bounce around like a freaking bunny rabbit behind the center.

I guess our CBs have a free card to tackle before the catch...

Hey Jesse Palmer. STFU. That's not PI? Ok.

"These people are losing their minds!"

Narduzzi was apoplectic. lol

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

He probably is complaining because they told him they weren't going to call pass interference tonight.

Just saying our DBs need to start mugging their receivers until it gets called. Stop pussy footing, jam the shit out of them, and go up and break up passes. Get physical.

Fuck off Narduzzi you've been mugging us all night

Jarvis is my co-pilot.

Wait... are they allowed to throw flags on PI?

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

I'm guessing the refs didn't see Pitt's jersey holding earlier. You can't use that to negate an obvious hold later.

Finally. Narduzi or whatever can shut the hell up.

Once I'm Mr. Beat, only miss a beat.

What the fuck is Narduzzi bitching about??? There have been 3 blatant pass interferences against Pitt and they've only called one. I think you're winning this one

Seriously, it was about time that got called.

They're pretending that since they didn't call it against Pitt earlier, it should now be allowed.

TD!

Cunningham!

Announcers are hilarious. "That pi wasn't as flagrant as the other no call pis. They're not being consistent."

? I agree with them 100%. It was PI, but it was like third most egregious PI on that drive.

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

Yes, but they were almost making it sound like the refs shouldn't have called it because they let Pitt get away with all the other ones. That's pretty silly.

Pittsburgh is a Union town. It's called "Past Practice".

Each to his own ability; Pitt's DBs don't seem to have much.

Exactly.

Oh look. You can get a touchdown when you throw in the red zone.

and your receiver doesn't get mugged.

Normally I'd say go for 2 - but good call to take the point given our struggles.

Where the hell were these play actions earlier!

We had to get stuffed 10 times up the middle to set it up. /s

Sad part is... you're not entirely wrong.

That play that always gets Cunningham open in the end zone, I'd like to see them run it to the left as well. Might be a harder throw for Evans though.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Cornelsen setting that up with all those runs, right? right?

Wow. That wind is BAD. On that extra kick it started left and moved right hard.

Way to respond offense!!

Nardawg sure is upset about his players mugging our receivers

Hating on Narduzzi:

He doesn't believe Pass Interference should ever be called against his team.

I don't feel like checking but I swear at least half of Cunningham's catches this year are for TD's.

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

Good job by the offensive staff lulling the Pitt D to sleep with all the runs in the red zone to set up that late 2nd quarter TD.

Once I'm Mr. Beat, only miss a beat.

Jesse Palmer is a blooming idiot if he thinks the no PI calls are acceptable. He'd be going nuts if he was playing QB and not getting that call. The only thing more obvious would be tackling the receiver, which Ford has also experienced in this game with a no PI call.

We won the first quarter, they won the second. We need a better second half.

Fuck the acc refs.

Fuck Pitt.

Fuck Heinz.

Fuck it all.

This is not a pleasant game to watch.

We better get it together for the 2nd half.

Our defense has looked TERRIBLE the last two drives.

Maybe a little instruction during halftime to the refs on what constitutes pass interference.

And what doesn't.

Fuck everything. The refs. Heinz field. Red zone field goals. 71 yard passes with two minutes to go in the half.

That was pass interference on Stroman, but considering the blatant no calls on us that flag shouldn't have been thrown

Giving up a chance once again may haunt us. Tired of giving away possessions.

Look guys, Stroman's arm was stretched out and was obvious. All you need to do is to pull their jerseys down when they are jumping and you will be fine. That's not a PI.

But we've been our own worst enemy settling for all these damn field goals. This game could already be over

Oh and i really dont want to hear about our damn DBU anymore. They havebt earned it this season

Mook needs to learn to play disciplined, no doubt. He was pretty much singularly responsible for that last td. Well. Him and the refs.

How I feel about that last Pitt drive

Why do you not take a shot there!?!?

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

I'm no conspiracy person, but I am having a hard time believing these refs don't have some bills on this game.

That is unacceptable. We have plenty to blame ourselves for, but that call was the worst I've seen in a long, long time given the way this game has been called to that point.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

Fuente never says much to refs but he needs to get in these refs ears at half about the pass interference bull shit because if they aren't calling it in the second half we won't win

I'm wondering why the f*k there are more complaints about the officiating rather than the botched assignments and absence of the defense in the 2nd qtr and the shit execution and playcalling of the offense in the 1st.

At some point, if the ACC wants to be considered a real Football Conference; they need to dedicate themselves to developing a MUCH better referee lineup.

The ACC by far has the worst officiating of any major conference.

Eh, the Pac-12 has shit refs too.

Frustrating game. I hope this doesn't turn out to be one we perhaps win the box score but because we can't find the end zone we end up losing. That's what it feels like at the moment. I don't know where the passing on the red zone early on was. Did we not know that Pitts defense was good against the run and not the pass??? Did someone mix that up this week??

There is absolutely no way Pat Narduzzi just said "They've gotta call it both ways"

I AGREE PAT

I'd settle if they consistently called PI when the corner has the receiver by the shirt.

Really Narduzzi, they have to call it both ways? I've always thought this guy was a deuche, and he just confirmed it for me.

Pat Narduzzi has quickly passed Paul Johnson as my most despised ACC coach

FUCK! okay. I feel better now.

If I'm Fuente, I'm lighting into this team in the locker room for hanging around with these fucking clowns all first half. Their offense's greatest play is a screen pass. We have had one-on-one matchups on the outside with our receivers all game, and we keep trying to run into the teeth of the D-Line. As has been mentioned, this game should be out of hand by now. I'm sick of this half-empty pro stadium and mediocre Pitt team looking all world because of us. Focus and execute and blow these losers out.

This! This, this, this and this.

It's frustrating we score against "good" defenses and struggling versus porous defenses.

Narduzzi had to say something so when he has to submit paperwork on that broken headset it seems like a reasonable explanation

I hope he gets an opportunity to break additional headsets tonight.

VT's D definitely needs to avoid leaving the entire middle of the field wide open.

Short passes to slow guys should not be 70 yard plays.

Yup. Crappy officiating aside, that was the most sickening play of the game. Just inexcusable.

Nothing against James Conner. He has a great story.

But I'd sure like to see him lose tonight.

lol, is Narduzzi the biggest crybaby in the world? It's because of the refs that you're even still in this game. I'm still nervous about the final outcome, but in a fairly called game we're winning by two scores.

Points.

I think they've ran a commercial for every non PI call. ESPN blows Narduzzi nads

We need the offense to take over and finish drives. I think the defense will get some more stops, but we have to limit the big ones, they haven't had a sustained drive yet

We may need to extend the Hatin' on Narduzzi thread an additional week.

I really dislike that guy.

"Tyrod, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has a man open, CAUUUGHT! Danny Coale, all the way!"

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

You really don't know what sucking is if you didn't live through '92 2-8-1 year. We're 5-2 this year.

I'll forgive them if they hold them to a fieldgoal.

Alright, y'all have gotten weird in here. Have a good night and Go Hokies.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

Crap - Conner is a beast, but we've contained him for the most part (except the one long run.) Gotta stop giving up the big plays.

That was a lost series.

No need to let it define the game.

It was one missed assignment.

You right, we can't just stop playing when we go down in a one-possession game. We CAN'T DO THAT to ourselves.

This is hard to watch. I think it was easier to watch when I knew we sucked ass. This year I've seen what is possible and then we fucking shit the bed twice in important games. I can't take much more.

Uh, we are only down 5 early in the 3rd quarter. This game has been frustrating. But its not over yet.

The defense has totally checked out. They are unreliable and useless at best. Offense needs to win this for us.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

That's embarrassing. No push whatsoever by our defense

Headed downhill quickly.

Grumble, growl, snarl, snap. Now we really need some good play calling for the offense. Get the Damn lead back, this team is not better than we are.
