Thanks! Is there any way to know at this point whether it will be available for me? I am in Blacksburg and can't make it to the game. Due to having kids all day while the spouse works, I can't go to a bar or anything to watch it. Any way to tell if I will be able to watch online? I don't know much about how all these networks (etc) work. Thanks in advance!

You should be able to watch it on ACC Network Extra which is available on WatchESPN.

Yeah I saw that but what about black outs or whatever? Is that a thing still? I just remember years ago trying to watch it espn3 or whatever it was called and sometimes I couldn't watch.

Thanks.

Blackouts don't apply to the online broadcasts generated by ESPN.

If you experienced a blackout, then it was most likely for a game that was on TV somewhere.

That makes sense. Thanks for the explanation.

Well thanks to Irma I'm missing the game. Hopefully I can get a decent internet game out of ESPN. Let's put this away early and get some quality reps in for everyone.

Same situation as Fireman-Counting on internet/power being around long enough to watch. I'm hunkered down here on Marco Island, FL waiting for this bitch to show its ugly little face. She better bring a good show for all the hell she's put me (and many others) through this week.

GO DAMN HOKIES!

Work obligations. Wasn't thrilled. Actually had made a plan Tuesday to grab my fianc and kids and head up to Roanoke (where I grew up) and "just so happen" to purchase a couple game tickets.... But I was told to stay with the building (Captain goes down with the ship I guess haha). So my supervisor and I are here. WatchESPN has been locked (wtf?) so I can't see the game!

Side note, one day my wife and I plan to retire to that general area. We love Sanibel, Captiva, Marco...taking the Key West Express from Marco to Key West was the highlight of my vacation a few years back.

Stay safe! Thoughts and prayers with pretty much the entire state of Florida for the next three days.

Cut to B2VT at kickoff

Don't let this comment take away from the fact that Arkansas blew a 24 point 2nd half lead in the Belk Bowl.

It seems that the obligatory greeting for game day threads was overlooked, so allow me...

HOKIES!!!!

If Tech wins any game by a hundred. I think my mind would break

Is It Luck?

So to be clear. This game is online streaming only. Correct?

Yes

Is It Luck?

FTFY

Has hokietapes ever put an online only game on YouTube? Think that's the only way I'm gonna be able to see the game since I'll be out during it.

If it's on WatchESPN, I think they have replays.

You can find just about every game in some format on there a couple of hours to a day afterward.

Edit: Not by hokietapes, but in general.

Someone the other day mentioned that DIRECTV sometimes has alternate channels that shows some of the watch espn games. I can stream it but I'd prefer to be able to have it on the tv regularly

Fam!!! Gonna be on the field for Enter Sandman, and I can't wait.

So...I don't have ACCN extra option my watchespn app. Anybody else have that problem? When I search for the game it just says it'll be on ESPN goalline.

Since it's not a linear channel, it's only going to show available when there's actual games being played. (Assuming you're looking at your phone.)

ACC Network Extra does show up in the list of channels on the WatchESPN app for Amazon FireTV.

Awesome thanks...just an analog guy living in a digital world.

Happy to hear Mason will be in the press box! Way to go pal!

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

I'll be trying to watch the game on my phone during a baby shower. Wish me luck.

Best o' luck brother man

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

I have a feeling JJ throws at least one pick. Some of his throws seemed rather weak and ill-advised last game. I still am amazed at how luck he was on that pass to Carroll. Still expect a big win though.

Really? That was opposite of my take. I thought the coaches did a great job not giving him a lot of options that were dangerous. He underthrew two deep balls to Phillips but I'd much rather him under throw them over throw.

The CJC catch was a pass we saw Evans, Brewer and LT complete regularly. You throw it where only your guy can get to it.

He might throw some picks but I didn't leave the WVU game concerned about his arm strength or decision making.

Some of the passes had an element of risk, but he seemed very accurate to me. His decision making was great.

Agreed, certainly not all of his throws, but honestly a few seemed to lack some zip on them. I don't know if his mechanics weren't set or what but some of his throws just seemed dangerous. Plus, he is a redshirt freshman after all. He will certainly make mistakes and make some bad throws. I doubt we see a Jerod Evans-like start to the season where he doesn't throw a pick for like 6 games or something crazy like that.

Jerod had an INT against BC (game 3) and 3 lost fumbles in games 1 and 2. Corn and Fuente really like how Jackson takes care of the football. I think the big time stats for Jackson will come.

Me too for sure. But I think he will throw a few freshman picks. He is already more careful than a normal freshman, but he is still a freshman and I certainly don't have the expectations yet for him to be a top QB in the country. Eventually, but not now.

I disagree on the decision making comment. I thought he made a lot of good decisions and threw the ball away when he should have. Way better than Grier in the decision making department. Mountain hey-zeus definitely got lucky on several passes that he should not have tried to force in there.

I do agree with the arm strength comment though. Seemed to float a few and under threw some deep balls.

Where's the beef?

Yeah that is a better way to put it. It really all stemmed from the arm strength on some of the passes for me. Some of the poorer decisions from me were probably based on the fact that there was a higher chance they got picked based on the pass being floated kinda.

{edit- wrong thread}

My sister is getting married today at 5 (bride/groom are wolf-packers) and my obligations toward preparations are done until then. Let's get this put away early so I'm not otherwise occupied at the start. LET'S GOOOO!...

WatchESPN not working. Anyone else having an issue? It keeps telling me im not authorized to watch when i clearly am. Fuuuuuckkk!!!

Where's the beef?

Yes. Nothing on espn app. Tried iPad, appleTV, Sony (Google play). Very pissed!

We put the K in Kwality

Im just getting the "your program is about to begin please stand by". I am streaming through my ipad to the tv on chromecast. Its espn/acc network thats fucking out.

Where's the beef?

WatchESPN through AppleTV here. It's still on the "ACC Extra" screen - no game yet. 3:30 ET start right????

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Same here

Is it football season yet?

Keeps kicking me out saying too many concurrent feeds. I'm only one in house that uses it. Also never loaded past your event is about to begin screen.

I'm getting event is about to start, please stand by...WTF!

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

Not working for me either.

SLC

I'm stuck on "PLEASE STAND BY"

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

#can'twatchESPN

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

Mine says it hasn't started yet. Still says event is about to begin.

I have it on the watchespn app on my iphone but cannot get it on ie or chrome on my desktop. frustrating.

SLC

Meanwhile espn8 showing UVA game. About 3,000 people there...

We put the K in Kwality

Mine hasn't given error messages, just stuck on the ACC ESPN Network Extra "Your Event Is About To Begin Please Stand By" page. No feed. If these fuckers (generally speaking) expect the new model to be streaming content and cord cutting, they need to get their shit straight. If this is the standard, they have a long fucking way to go before live content streamed is a reliable way to go. I'm pissed right now...

Still isn't working

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

Another stellar job by ESPN.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

WatchESPN says it's blacked out for me

Anybody at the game? Has it actuslly started yet?

Where's the beef?

Getting error messages now wtf.

SLC

I just got it on my Amazon FireTV, WatchESPN app. Missed opening kickoff. Took several attempts, though.

Works through the app on my iPhone...

15:37hr local time and ACC/ESPN Network banner still up. Aggravating.

Same here - works sporadically on iPhone and iPad. Will NOT work through AppleTV. So, I'm. Ow Airplaying from my phone to my television. Frustrating.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

No game here

Is it football season yet?

well this sucks that we can't watch

VT CEE Class of 2016/2017

5 years, 2 degrees, 33 football games as a student, and 2 Cassell court stormings later, I bleed Maroon and Orange

I'm out of the country and can't find any streams....can anyone help me out?

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

Just came up here.

Is it football season yet?

Not even showing as an event now

No luck yet.. Using Amazon fire TV and watchESPN app. Hanging on the load screen now after popping with errors the past few minutes

Has this thing kicked yet?

Just restarted the stream and got it to work. 12:20 to play in the first....Fuck WatchESPN

I would root for the Russians before I would root for Virginia.

Just got it on watchespn.

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

First I got game is unavailable, then apparently I'm getting some network connectivity error. Please fix this ESPN!

espn3 complete trash. every since they merged espn3 to the main espn site, all the streams are unreliable with constant stuttering or unable to load.

this is bullshit

Thanks ESPN

Keep calm, Gobble on

The new site really looks cool.

Well, except for the detail that the video is unavailable.

Just connected for me. Xbox on optimum.

And playback just stopped. Too many concurrent streams on my account. I'm the only one!

Me too! This stream has gone from sugar to shit. Got a streaming error x 3.

Where is Lawson?!

Won't even work on my computer. Frustrating as I don't remember having too many issues with espn3.

Gonna watch red bulls vs fire. Hopefully somebody will post a good YouTube vid.

Finally got it to work

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

Espn can kiss ever corner of my ass!

We put the K in Kwality

Both online and on my Sling TV (Roku) I am getting:
Your event is about to begin
Northern Virginia, Verizon FIOS

This doesn't look good.

1st down Delaware, listening to the radio

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama
- Mike Burnup

Got internet radio link by any chance?

still not getting it. trying on 3 devices.

Not seeing the game as available on Roku or iPad

Finally works on my phone... but I'm trying to watch it on one of my computer screens so I can do work. Windows 10 app is extremely slow in authentication, so I'm going to the webpage instead.

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

Greg Stroman Almost Pic- Delaware to punt

Finally Working for me on Xbox and Laptop

It's spotty but I got it working on my Ipad. However every time I try to cast it, it goes down again.

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

Roku up and running

Can't get it to cast to my TV. Every other app works without problem. I've never had problems with WatchESPN before but this is a colossal load of shit

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

Got it to work on phone only. already upset last week when I found out Spectrum blocks ESPN streaming through a chrome cast. Never thought I would say I miss time warner cable.

They do? We had no problem streaming and casting a D2 game last weekend.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Can't chromecast it from PC or android. Called Spectrum and they told us to go through Time Warner Cable... So.. that's awesome.

Ruxin if we lined up every girl you had sex with in high school we could rush for a 1000 yards behind them in the NFL.

Fuck this shit and fuck ESPN

Terrible feed here. WatchESPN sucks

Is it football season yet?

Just magically appeared again on roku and now works.

I honestly want to see a lot more running from our backfield rotation this week.

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

So someone please explain to me what the ACC network will be like once it gets going. Will it be straight dog shit like every other ESPN streaming feed?

Had to restart and got to see part of Delaware's drive. After punt went to commercial screen and now its stopped streaming. Error playing video. Thanks ESPN

Well i had it working on my phone and thats gone now also and my two year old just puked all over the living room rug. FUUUUCCKKKK!

Where's the beef?

I could have given zero fucks about the puke if the game was actually working. Game not working, kid pukes, dad has a fucking meltdown. We were both screaming mad! Anyways, all cleaned up now but the lil' guy ruined pineapple for me. Only one left puking is ESPN... Fucking losers!

Where's the beef?

Use interent stream. Posted link in another comment

working seemlessly on android. Failing repeatedly on their website with my mac.

I guess I'll be watching on the small screen...

Fucking espn. They probably fired all their network engineers instead of all the other useless TV personas.

Ugh...getting nothing here on any device. Very frustrating. Going to radio

Watched half of Delaware drive and two plays with audio for different plays for Tech and then it cut back out.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

i got it for maybe 15 seconds...worthless

Gave up on the PC, tried the ESPN app on my Amazon Fire TV (infinite loading circle), and finally gave in and tried the WatchESPN phone app->this works, but not ideal.

Able to watch other WatchESPN games like Wake Forest vs Boston College, just not this one.

Dear ESPN and Cox:

Same Here

Go Hokies!

It's not your cable provider its fucking ESPN. I have Verizon and the shit don't work!

Where's the beef?

"An error occurred during video playback, possibly due to network connectivity or being in a backgrounded browser tab. Please try again." 5th time I've got this message.

Why isn't this game on regional TV? This is the first game I can remember not being on TV in 5 years. Games vs. FCS teams are usually on CSN, CSN+, or My20 (FOX5 Plus now in DC FIOS).

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

Yeah I keep getting that same error. Like why do they even care if it's a background tab. Fucking cunts

Mine wasn't even in a background tab!

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

It just started back up on my iPad.

Was about to post this very thing.

I think I heard the same guy congratulating Stro after the punt return TD. I think he's a part of the feed for the duration. Hopefully he'll at least be entertaining.

Offense looks brutal right now

Is it football season yet?

Listening on the radio... sounds like Jackson's looking good but the receivers can't catch the ball to save their collective lives.

Looked much better on the 2nd series than on the 1st

VT '13, Georgia Native in Alexandria, VA

I don't understand how you're doing this, but thank you

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

Not "my" stream in sense that i am the creator. "My" stream only as in the one i am watching.

Sorry for confusion, but happy to help

Why aren't we running the ball?

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

Yeah weird game plan so far. Though id be complaining less if Clark or Savoy caught their passes

And Clark drops the ball. On a dime from JJ. Then Kumah drops a sure TD.

Where is Lawson?!

Savoy?

Yea but if JJ hits Clark in stride the defender wouldn't have been able to get a hand on him.

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

Couldn't get the stream working in a browser. WatchESPN app on iPad is finally working and able to connect to Chromecast. Stream is smooth now that it's working. I'm signed in with a PlayStation Vue account.

Good thing we didn't miss anything

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama
- Mike Burnup

Aren't missing much. Offense doesn't look prepared against a far inferior team at the moment

Dude. The receivers don't look prepared. Two wide open bombs dropped - excellent if risky passes.

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

The Oline hasn't blocked anyone yet in the run game.

For those who can't watch it, offense isn't hitting on anything right now, so you're not missing much.

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

Lol, so much for the ACC Network.

I'm on AppleTV ESPN App ACC Network Extra in the DC and it says "Not authorized."

Yet the Indiana game is available.

Working on my phone, using airplay to watch on AppleTV. The video quality is surprisingly good, but man that was difficult.

Twitter me

Works on my Galaxy 7 through the ESPN app...website on my laptop freezes after 15 seconds. hope this helps. Our receivers can't catch.

Went to try to get it to work on my xbox and it says I have to go to authenticate, but that website gives an error too. Nice job ESPN

VT BSEE '98, VT MSME '01

so, far, on offense, VT has established that they only have one WR threat. Savoy and Clarke drop very catchable balls.
t

To summarize so far, the stream/feed sucks a fat one, the offense seems to be trying different shit to see if they can get other stuff going (appears disjointed/out of sync), and defense is playing well, especially Floyd.

Run the ball!!!! Get some easy first downs.

Just to chime in here, also doesn't work on the PS4 WatchESPN App, and I tried going to the website as well with no luck. In case anyone is wondering, I tried using a VPN to get the website to work, and it looks like they block everything now I f you use a VPN. So phone it is.

STRO!!!!!!

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

Stroman punt return touchdown!! Fuck Yeah!

Beamerball is alive. Stro with the punt return TD

Batmanstream.com for anyone who can't see it

These people

Stroman untouched 61 yard punt return for TD

STROOOOOOOO.

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

workin on iphone...nice run greg!

Nice relaxed punt return by Stroman. Hopefully wakes up our receivers

We will struggle if another receiver doesn't emerge. And right now, we have UNO.

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

Nice stop. But i want some SACKS

FWIW, I got the Amazon Fire TV to work.

And that's why Amazon will win the war of the machines.....

Where's the beef?

End of first and only 7 points. Not exacrly what I imagined but hey we're winning

Stroman housed a punt and I missed it trying to pull up WatchESPN on my computer when it was working fine on my phone.

I should have left well enough alone...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Two guys that caught a lot of heat in prior years now look like some of the best we have on the team (Motu and Stroman) - really impressed with the development of both.

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

We have been out-gained 63-26.

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

Clearly from the previous comments on this thread I'm not the only one having issues streaming this...I missed most of the first but got to see the stroman return. We need to sustain some drives, and the WR's need to step up.

So if this game is not on TV on any channel anywhere, why are there commercial breaks? If the online feed is the only place to see the game, and the online feed isn't showing actual commercials, why do we keep getting the ESPN Your Event is in a Commercial Break screen?

What would you have them show? The broadcast still needs a break from time to time and I'm sure the radio feeds want to get their commercials in

Wow, this offense...

Is it football season yet?

Classic let-down game. Team doesn't look focused at all. Poor performance so far.

I literally have three brand new computers a brand new ipad and high speed internet and the only fucking thing that works is my damn samsung galaxy on lte service. FUCK YOU ESPN and FUCK YOU COMCAST

Burn it....

Where's the beef?

the strangest thing is that the game feed works on my phone until I try to broadcast it on my chrome cast on the TV. Could this be an issue with too many people trying something similar and ESPN being dumb enough to believe people would only watch on the phone? Forthe record,the record, I have no idea if the two or related or not but I found it odd.

Where's the beef?

Same problem I had. Casting finally started working with about 7 minutes left in the half.

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

What the hell is going on with our offense? Is this by design? Are we trying new shit or limiting game film opportunities for upcoming oppenents? Or are we truly not good enough to move the ball on Delaware?

Looks like poor execution so far.

Hokies game is only game fucked up. We have gotten every other game to play on every device. Only iPad will
Play Hokies game.

I'm streaming mine on my laptop which is connected to my flatscreen via hdmi. Decent. Not great but decent.

I couldn't get Syracuse vs MTSU to work either (also an ACCN branded game). But yeah the games on televised ESPN networks seemed to work.

Mihota at tackle

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

You had to think he'd start seeing some time with the lack of a two deep at DT. I imagine him being a Jim Davis type of '04 and playing a little bit of both spots. Not sure who picks up the slack at DE. Desperately thin at both spots if you ask me.

This game is dreadful. I think we have 1 first down

Hahaha, the false starts are great.

Where's the beef?

So many Delaware false starts... lulz

11:13 in 2nd - DE how many penalty yards (29) than we have in offensive production (28). Es no beuno.

Anyone know if ESPN has a customer service line? As soon as I don't need my phone to watch the game, I'm fixin' to make a nasty phone call.

Where's the beef?

Not sure, but instead of waiting for your phone to free up, maybe you can quickly sign up for Google Voice and use your computer (if you're near one) to give them a nice Saban-esque ass chewing.

We called, there was no answer.

Ruxin if we lined up every girl you had sex with in high school we could rush for a 1000 yards behind them in the NFL.

Shocking!!!

Where's the beef?

Not gonna lie, that personal foul call for roughing the passer was quite bs.

Is Stinespring calling plays in this game?

No...we're letting him call them from Harrisonburg

crazy talk man. we've had excellent calls and guys dropping balls left and right. JJ missed the lollipop to a WIDEOPEN back down the middle as well. the plays are there.

Offense looks asleep, defense dominating.

Bad underthrow by JJ just there

That this game isn't being broadcast regionally AND the online stream does not work is absolutely unacceptable from the ACC. We are a ranked team and one of their biggest football fanbases.

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

Best thing to do is let Whit hear it. Twitter and email.

If you give to HokieClub let them hear it too.

Agree. The service is complete bullshit.

Seriously! How is that not interference?

Where's the beef?

our receivers can't get open and drop passes routinely...poor combination

Jackson throws a very nice, catchable ball. We just don't have anyone who can catch it (several easy drops).

We put the K in Kwality

Disagree. He's lofted several passes way too much this game resulting in severe underthrows and allowing defenders to recover. There have been some drops but also some solid plays from Delaware too.

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

I'd have to agree, with your disagreement. He seemed tardy on a few completions, drops AND misfires. Some of its probably experience, and maybe a little of last-week hangover.

And some "coach'em up" material for this week.

Hokieball, you are a funny game.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Offense still looks incapable against freakin Delaware to this point.

Good confidence booster for Slye though

this is a classic beamerball game....by golly, it's been a while

Redemption on the Slye!

Good to Slye get his confidence back up on a great kick. But why are we not running the ball, and why are we only throwing long balls. Let's try some check downs. Not understanding the game plan so far but in CornFu I trust.

McMillion-Dollar Man... I'll see myself out.

Again. How many interceptions and penalties do we have? It's not always what you do, but with a young team avoiding STUPIDITY is paramount. We've done that so far this year.

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

As long as he scores Touchdowns I'm down with McMillion

O/U on the McMillion...I'm setting total at 20...take the over. but the other guy says it properly...WTF!

Definitely the over. By my count we're already at 9, and the offense hasn't done much yet.

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

I think the feed has a serious delay. Right when Savoy caught the pass on the feed, I heard Skipper go off for the touchdown.

Also this announcer is giving #45 the business...hilarious...

Streaming technology still has a ways to go... Even with the fastest internet, it still takes ~30 seconds to convert the video format to something that can be streamed online.

Don't know why they're melting down, given that this is pretty normal for them.

I like the move.

EDIT: Despite the result.

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

Offense can't move the ball. Defense can't get pressure on the qb. Kicker sitting at 40% on the season. Not good Bob...

Short week coming off a hugely emotional game against a P5 team. I'm disappoints with what I've seen but am not surprised we haven't been as crisp as we should be. Let's get the win and move forward.

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

Was expecting 30 points minimum with offense slicing and dicing, we have 17 with a punt return and a field goal.

this game is really boring.

Almost wish watchespn wasn't working....

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

I don't think so.

The only thing more frustrating than watching your team not perform as well as they should is struggling to get your cable to work. Is it you? Is it your computer? Is it cable? Is it ESPN? Should you tune into one of those popup sites and play wackamole (and risk a virus) to watch the game? Nah.

See below you finally got yours working, here's to hoping you didn't get all the popups from previous sources.

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

Thanks to Fernley (but not ESPN), I was able to watch some of the second quarter.

Now ESPN seems to be working.

VT needed a lighter game this week, but they still have a lot of kinks to work out.

Buzz is just one long run-on sentence.

Yada, Yada, Yada, Drive for 25.

Very underwhelming first half...but it's better to be underwhelming and win than look awesome and lose. Ask West Virginia.

For the people who listen to the HokieSports radio broadcast, why does the one announcer keep saying "ladies". It's kind of weird to me.

He's saying Laas. Jon Laaser (pronounced laser) is the other announcer. Threw me off the first time I heard it too.

Finally got the feed working on one of my computer screens just to watch that segment with Buzz and Frank.

Hopefully the game is less laggy than that was.

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

This is boring. Of course I just want a win, but against lesser opponents I want to see domination.

Are the wr not getting open. Everything seems to be deep down the field and you can't see the routes on TV. Not really sure what's going on. Seems like a crazy conservative game plan or JJ is not pulling the trigger at all.

Rushing 3, dropping 8 will give young QBs a fit.

Bend but don't break.

Delaware has had 2 great drives stopped. The first missed FG was the result of the being an FCS team, but this was all on our defense. I feel better about that one.

we're winning....in a blow out....and a shut out....what are you talking about? are you crazy?

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

That we struggled mightily to get to a 24-0 lead against FCS Delaware with 4:52 left in the fourth quarter. Can you honestly say you are pleased with the performance today? The outcome, okay I get it, but the overall performance?

Look, I don't know how else to explain this. I am glad we are winning and will win this game, but the lackluster effort to get there sucks. I've seen this team play like this too many times against rivals like Pitt, Mia, etc. It will cost them in a game down the road.

Where's the beef?

I just think you're overreacting. We have a freshman qb and only one really seasoned wr. Our offense is going to be a bit of a patchwork deal most of the season. I don't understand why you're so frustrated by this team not blowing the doors off of a lesser team in their second time out on a short week.

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

You're right I probably am. But the fact that we couldnt put pressure on the QB and our OL couldnt create any push for the run game is very concerning.

Where's the beef?

the fact that we couldnt put pressure on the QB

Uh...wat?

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

You can pick apart my gripping in segments all you want. If we play like that when Clemson comes to town, we are getting blown out. Bottom line.

Where's the beef?

That's fine and all, but you're literally just making shit up. We got pressure on their QB all game.

"I mean, you know, fuck them, but good for them." -Too Druck to Funk

Stats from ESPN show 4 sacks and 5 QB hurries. Not sure if that fits my narrative or not when you put it in the context of an FCS team that is supposed to be dominated. Perhaps im letting last weeks performance cloud/invade my perception. But yeah, I literally just made that shit up.

Where's the beef?

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

27-0, in a short week following a huge game against WVU with an offense starting a lot of freshman. I'm not too panicked about it (didn't down vote you FWIW, just giving my two cents)

Overall im not panicked also. I just don't like seeing our DL and OL struggle against an FCS team. It spells trouble down the road.

Where's the beef?

WVU played in the same game we did, and didn't struggle at all today despite LOSING that game.

It's alright man. You seem to be new here?

This is disappointing, but it's not the end of the world. I'm not jazzed about his game either, but we are winning, and it's a short week after a big game. We've done worse.

Actually not new here been on here for a few years.

Where's the beef?

I've also been around long enough to know its not the end of the world. Hah. Just frustrated.

Where's the beef?

yea, I get it. VT is treating it too much like a scrimmage. Josh Jackson still needs time to develop. I hope he turns the corner, but his accuracy and elusive run ability are average. His decision making is very good for a freshman.

But, trying to make the team better in this game seems to be irrelevant to helping pay for scholarships of players. Perhaps you can explain the connection.

You're right. My correlation there was not correct. My apologies for getting frustrated.

Where's the beef?

That game was super frustrating to watch. I 100% agree on that front. Offensively, gotta be more efficient then that. But, I'm not sure how much of the game plan was to see what works and what doesn't, but I think VT found a lot of things that aren't working right now.

I'm just hoping they improve on this game. Overall, a positive result with the win and shutout (luckily, their kicker sucks). The tape review will be good way to improve the team.

Bottom line is this is a classic let down game. It's better to get these out the way as we can still workout these issues with our next two opponents before the big showdown. We are a young team don't forget that.

I get that it's out of his range, but Slye needs to start making some kicks purely for his own confidence

Terrible game

...what are we doing?

Why isn't this fun to watch? in fact, this is quite tedious

Offense is just flat. Glad we are playing an FCS school this week.

We look horrible on offense. Can the receivers just not get open? At least our defense came too play.

SLC

Looks like the defense is finally starting to shut things down late, but offense man stop being offensive

Soooo it looks like the school president, Sands was the first celebrity "Let's Go Hokies" chant leader. Doesn't sound like it went well.

...cause it's a dumb idea...

We put the K in Kwality

It's not a great idea but I'm pretty sure the Hokie Pokey wasn't going to be raucous today either.

Everybody is probably asleep

I am barely excited to watch this game for free in confort of my home. I can't imagine being all that excited for a lets go at a game i payed for.

Glad it wasn't an actual celebrity though. No disrespect to Sands, but... ya know...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

It's a bad idea. Traditions don't just pop out of thin air. We already have the chant at the beginning of the game. Thoughtless and lazy idea in a poor game gets poor results.

Wouldn't really say this was a 1-0 kind of day. More around .5-0 today.

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

The WV game sucked the life out of us appears.

Yet, they hung a 50-burger on ECU.

It didn't suck the life out of them

Jackson seems like he doesn't want to run it at all. He has a lot of time and room but just sits waiting for someone to get open. At some point if you have the room run it.

Our OL is garbage.

We put the K in Kwality

The OL is doing well, French? But the backs are RS doing very well at all at pass blocking.

absolutely zero push by the OL in the run game. They are not performing particularly well.

Is it football season yet?

No push, sacks against 3-man rush, missed assignments.

We put the K in Kwality

The sack happened after 9 seconds the OL can't be asked to do much more than that.

wish we had at least 3 more TDs but oh well, lets get the W and move on with our lives. ECU next week makes me nervous

ECU got handled by JMU and slaughtered by WVU. If they give us trouble after this wake up call, I'll be concerned.

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

Nice throw with the defender in his face as well.

Cam is 10 yards away from another century mark. I wonder if he stays in at this point though.

I love the excess bitching with a 24-0 score. We have work to do in all areas, but the team is doing ok.

Love that we are winning. Hate how its come with such poor execution

Lol watching the special teams guys try to hype up the crowd after that kickoff was slightly depressing.

Q4 against FCS team and our starting DL is still in.

on the plus side Tremaine is playing like a man possessed!

Jalen Holston sighting!

Was the 2nd down play an option? Holston left JJ in the dust if it was...

Looks like it was supposed to be, the way JJ was running after the snap.

Jackson needs to stop backpedalling. He had a lot more time had he stepped up in the pocket. He's done it a bunch of times.

I am not impressed.

Where is Lawson?!

Listening on the radio. Laaser sucks. Bill Roth is a god. He made it look easy and I took him for granted.

And "Watch ESPN" is an effing lie when you can't watch anything

I was able to acquire WatchESPN connectivity during the second half.

Laaser is fine.

I absolutely hate, hate to be that guy. But I was at the game today and had the worst gameday experience I have ever had. The security absolutely sucks. A mob of people almost rioted because it was taking way too long to get through the gate on the East Side. The gameday security is an absolute embarrassment. Events with 100k plus can get through quicker. Then fight through all that to see a half ass effort today.

Love the Hokies always, and I will continue to support the program, but the gameday experience is lacking severely from what I knew as a student. May be my last year holding season tickets.

They were waiting until the espn coverage started...

We put the K in Kwality

But the games not over yet?

Edit: which gate, talking to people in the past they have had issues with majority of people trying to enter through 3 gates instead of spreading out entry.

Sorry you had a bad experience brother. Having worked as a stadium staff member for 2 years ('15-'16), I can say that the biggest problem facing Rhino is lack of employees/high turnover. Trust me when I say that they are working hard to fix it, but very much have an uphill climb.

Sounds like Bristol! That bites!

Where is Lawson?!

Always go through the middle of the East Stands by Stadium Woods. There's never a line

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

That's the entrance I use all the time and normally this holds true. Today, that was definitely NOT the case. Not sure exactly what the problem was.

Yes holy cow that gate was horrendous. The gate between the Barn and the woods is usually slam packed, but damn it'll at least move. We got in line at 3:00 in the middle of the east and ended missing two, maybe 3 series.
