HERE IT IS!! GAME DAY BABY!!!!

LETS GOOOOOOO!!!!!

HOKIES!!!

Edit

That's not a big enough glass.

Thats why he keeps refilling it

Where's the beef?

That gobbler has freakin laser nostrels.... That's so bad ass!

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

Eyes? The dots you see behind where the lasers originate are actually the "ears".

Regardless, can we make laser nostrels a "thing"?

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

I don't know about nostrels but I am all for laser nostrils!!

Have a leg. Apologies for the douchebaggery.

Looking forward to seeing what is looking like my only game in Lane this season. Go Hokies!!

Happy Hokie Day !!!!!!!!!

As soon as I finish my free hotel breakfast with all the old people talking about going back to Florida I'll be back at Tech for a game FINALLY!

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I've never had a tougher time avoiding the look-ahead to the next opponent.

Just imagine what the players are going through

Photographing a wedding Today starting at 2. I will be keeping along through twitter till it gets embarrassing.

So I'm guessing 15 mins of monitoring should do! Go Hokies

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

If past performance is any indication, you might want to skip the first 15.

ETA: If you haven't started watching yet, I'd recommend skipping the second 15 as well.

What is the O/U on espn watch working today?

Light 'em up!

Where is Lawson?!

I'm hoping it's better for 2 reasons:

-ESPN learned from the last cluster.
-2 PM start time is offset from other games starting at different times, so overall site traffic will be different.

I would say that the sellout would make it easier because more people would be at the game, but ODU probably has a significant fanbase that will be streaming as well.

So this game is on watch espn right?

It's on the Upcoming Games on the WatchESPN app.

Hope they're focused and get it done...early. No injuries, nice execution of a condensed playbook, more experience for our 2-deep's. EPW will be a happy camper. Go Hokies!

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

I'm calling a pick 6 today.

Will it be Stro, Facyson, Motu or Deablo?

Why not all four?

OT: just learned to use GIFs from my phone. Today's been a good day...

Experience watching this team tells me one side of the ball is going to lay an egg today. Hopefully it's not both sides. Conditions are right for a flat performance. I still think we win, but it might be more Delaware-esque than any of us want to admit.

Here's hoping none of what I just typed comes to pass. LET'S GOOOOOO

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.

Or this week we finally even out.

anyone know the radio station itll be on? ill be driving

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

Let's Go

TuneIn app has Tech Talk Live, may also carry the game.

Yes, the TuneIn app always has the game and works well

Then you're probably not going to want to watch what we do to their 17 year old QB today

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

I can only watch the first half live, so hopefully we have an ECU 3rd like half.

whats the app to listen to the pregame on iphone?

I'm hoping for a blowout but what I really want to see is continued success in blocking from both the 0-line and the skilled position players. I truly believe that if we can get good blocking from these two pieces of the offense Tech will be able to go undefeated or at least be a one loss team headed into the ACCCG. Ideally we have no injuries and we play so well that we get our backups in after the half. Go Hokies!

Wait it's gameday? Quick to the Beamercopter! #LetsGoHokies

Please let the ACC network work today.

So am I correct that this won't be televised on cable, and the only option is to stream it?

Twitter me

Hope the starters run it up early and get the 2nd half off. No injuries.

And we wait...

IT'S ACTUALLY WORKING THIS TIME!!!!

Ok ODU.

Buffering. Buffering. Buffering. Not as bad as previous weeks, but still not great compared to pretty much every other streaming service (including those who stream live)

Joey slye isn't good

He hasn't been mentally there all season.

Chick involved! That's a joke.

Where is Lawson?!

he's good at kickoffs

We need to get some Kicking competition to push for the starting job. Sly is going to burn us one of these games with his inconsistent kicking.

Pour some Beer on it

uh . . .

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

Awesome start..................................../s

Where is Lawson?!

Doggone it...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

27 yards...

It's fine

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Dagone Joey..

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

Biggest off-season transfer could be Wright Bynum, the holder from last year
Oscar Bradburn could be the problem in the kicking game

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

It's because those Aussies spin the ball in the opposite direction due to them growing up in the Southern Hemisphere.

This is a good comment.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

I would take that... seems like it would improve with repetition, but they've probably had hundreds, if not thousands, of practice reps over the last few months already.

To good Friends... good health... and the besting of Hoos.

Hey Joey,

Y u no kick FG good anymore?

Let me be the first to use the names Joey Slye and Carter Wiley Warley in the same sentence.

Carter Warley?

"We were at the pinnacle, and we did it for years," Foster says. He pauses, nods, takes a deep breath. "And I did it with the best guy in the business."

Ah, I stand corrected. I guess that means someone else can still be the first.

I really would like to know what's bugging Joey. He's so goshdarned shaky....

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

Just playing the long con and setting up for a safety at the beginning of this drive, duh.

/s... everyone looks like they're timid today again. Why do we start games like this all the time? This ain't gonna cut it next week.

We will lose a game this year due to the kicking game. Not today - but eventually this is gonna cost us.

I pray we never have to count on a Slye FG for a win. That boy is shook.

I heard that Clemson lost their kicker for the year with a torn ACL.
Sly will be OK and will win games for us.

He also might lose us games. Almost happened vs WVU.

Defense is looking solid as usual. Still, the 17 year old kid has got a head on his shoulders and an arm to go with it. Just needs to not play at a sold out Lane.

Seriously, how many 17 year old kids have ever played in this tough of an environment? Baptized by fire as they say.

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

I mean, I know it's only the second possession of the game.... but I'm getting the feeling that we're looking ahead. We just look flat today already. To me at least. I could be the only one. I'd be ok with that

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

You serious?

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

I mean, maybe my excitement is way over the top... this is the first game I'm able to actually watch since WVU (thanks Irma..) so it's been building for 3 weeks... I might just be a little hyped.

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

Yeah, I'm thinking that we're keeping the playbook closed this week.

Killa cam

The play calling in the red zone is leaving a lot to be desired

Yerrrppppp

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

It definitely leaves a lot to be desired. Obviously I think they're trying to settle Jackson in, but I also have a suspicion that they're trying to keep it as vanilla as possible so Clempson has very little game tape.

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

Ok. Joey is good again.

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

Don't know why we keep trying to run JJ. I would like him not banged up for next week...

Our soft o-line?

That sounds like even less of a reason to call JJ's number on run plays.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Not a fan of this Red Zone offense/play calling. I don't really get the point of the QB draws.

Twitter me

Game strategy aside I'm surprised we're running JJ as much as we are against ODU. I've been in and out of the room with a sick kiddo though and haven't been watching too close. Have they been mostly reads or designed QB runs?

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

They are setting something up with JJ's running.

Where is Lawson?!

Observation from 2nd possession:

Cam Phillips will eventually be canonized as the patron Saint of orthopedic surgeons.

Yeah, he did break that guy's ankles

I had just texted a buddy that Cam has an endorsement contract waiting from an orthopedist somewhere when I read this.

Seems like we're being pretty vanilla in the red zone. For now I'm okay with it, let's save some surprises for Clemson. But if it stays close we may need to open it up a bit

Ohhh Stroh....why the fair catch with everyone coming back to block???

I have to say that QB is a heck of an athlete and is really playing his heart out.

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

Why does my stream keep buffering??? I've missed a lot of plays. ...

ESPN can't handle streaming properly. I won't speculate as to the reason, but it's almost certainly not a bandwidth issue on their end.

It's awful for me too. I'm almost ready to turn it off and listen to the radio broadcast. The commercials play fine of course.

"We were at the pinnacle, and we did it for years," Foster says. He pauses, nods, takes a deep breath. "And I did it with the best guy in the business."

Glad it's not just me...frustrating

Mine has been sweet. Very sharp pic. Replace your modem! /s

Where is Lawson?!

I switched from the ps4 to the computer somewhat better

TKPhi Damn Proud
BSME 2009

I'm not feeling confident about next week as of now. Maybe we're keeping it vanilla to hide our plans?

C'mon ACC Extra! Why u no work right?

Friends don't let friends go to LOLUVA

You're getting Extra. Extra bulls**t.

Trevon is getting some love today

Haven't seen a lot of Peoples today. Granted that may just be because the stream keeps freezing and skipping plays...

Why is Jackson throwing like Mr. Magoo today?

Their corners are playing pretty tight right now. I expect to see the deep ball on play action sooner than later.

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

#ACCNetworkExtraBuffering

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

We are on pace for a solid 12-0 win today.

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

Stinger? Nut shot? Doesn't look too serious.

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

We are going to get annihilated by Clemson if we can't figure out how to stop these slow starts

At least I'm able to watch the commercials without buffering....

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

I literally am buffering during every other play. I get all of the horrible color commentary between plays and then it freezes right after snap.

ESPN IS SHIT

Me too, it almost seems purposeful how well timed the buffering is.

ACC network is terrible!

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

I get the feeling that ODU is going to become the new ECU for us

Lets hope not considering we play ECU and ODU back to back for the next two years

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

ESPN stream is complete garbage for me.

Just arrived. Whats happening.

JJ meh.
Placalling meh.
TreMac getting lots of carries.
Slye bad.
Slye good.
ESPN stream shit.

This 17 y/o has a lot of potential. Don't look forward to playing against him in the coming years.

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

I don't think we'll face a 17 y/o qb next year...

___

-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.

Their punter seems to be really slow. Wouldn't be surprised if we went after a few and blocked one.

Confidence Level: Plummeting.

JJ looks rushed. Not comfortable at all.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

How will he look against the #2 sacks D next week then?

Well odu was number 1 so, better?

I swear to drunk, I'm not God

LOL, exactly.

Savoy was wide open.

Jackson is not so fast...

Clemson would be up 28-0

Where is Lawson?!

Eh. I mean the offense looks a little rough but on a day when our defense is currently pitching a shutout I wouldn't necessarily predict Clemson to be on pace for 100.

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

So... about this offense... What's up? They're clearly talented, so I just don't understand.

Purposefully vanilla playbook hiding anything we might use against Clemson.

Pacey needs to pick up the pace. The whole offense is dragging this first half

We were down 24-0 at the half against Arkansas. We were down 17-7 against ECew. We won both those games. We have a (r)Fr starting at QB, he's gonna look like a freshman sometimes. We're fine y'all.

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

It's not about winning. It's about all these issues that are going to be exposed against real teams.

Great. Clemson is coming next week. Being down by 17+ points is not a viable plan if we want to beat real competition. Let's not pretend Arkansas was a good team.

At one point against Clemson in the ACCCG last year we were down 35-14 in the third quarter. It's not a sprint, it's a marathon. The sky is not falling.

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

Unrelated to on-the-field matters, but I have had absolutely no problem streaming. Android WatchESPN app and Chromecast.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

It appears our offense is buffering as well...

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

PS4, 100 mbps down, having trouble streaming. No problems with literally anything else.

Edit: TKP decided I wanted to reply to you instead of the person above.

Brandon is playing his ass off. There are more commercials on the stream than TV!

Where is Lawson?!

The same two commercials on repeat.

The irony of a DirecTV Sunday Ticket commercial buffering is palpable. For those who haven't tried the web version, it's almost as bad as ESPN.

Facyon sez: "Med School can wait. Imma make this tackle for loss".

Look, I totally get the need to keep it close to the chest, but can we at least put our points into the upper teens or somewhere in the 20s BEFORE we do the vanilla thing!? Letting them be this close to scoring range is TOO risky. They'd love NOTHING more than even a slight chance to JMfU us.

#FUENTEenFUEGO
Waho's suck

Anyone else's stream keep stuttering?

Yes. So frustrating

Only when it's live football. The damn commercials all come in just fine.

Aren't all tackles technically "touchdown saving tackles?"

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

Saw that coming a mile away. JJ's been looking the ball in all afternoon.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

just when they start rolling...

On that play, was there a second hot read? If not, there should have been.

We don't love dem Hoos.

y u do dis?

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck, don't ever come on my show and talk about your football." - Colin Cowherd

Ugh. JJ got tricked.

Yup. Good to be learning that lesson sooner than later.

Just an FYI for anyone having buffering issues.

I have now switched to my iPad and have not buffered once. My high end laptop cant stream for more than 1 minute without freezing.

The app must work better on mobile devices.

I noticed that last week. Didn't get it reliably working on my desktop (didn't try my laptop), but my phone had no problem.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Not there yet but having visions of:

Strictly speaking, we're already past that point.

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

True. I was seeing more like 3-3 but that vision has been abated by that last series. I really want to see this thing turned on!

Leg for truly classic and appropriate gif.

This stream is killing me. It keeps dropping into a lower quality and then plays fine, but then they bring it back up to best quality and it freezes literally every 3 seconds

I just switched laptops (same type) and haven't had any buffering for about 5 minutes. No idea why.

Well, the stream has improved. I changed nothing and it's been buffering less.

This guy is going to fugging drive us crazy!

Where is Lawson?!

Off-Topic: Andrew Ford and UMass just got the ball back with 1 minute left, down 4 to Tennessee...

Good lord the stream is terrible. I just gave up. But get this. I decided I'd do the "gamecast" instead where there's the little football field with the logos that move based on a play and I'd pair it with the radio call. Guess what? ESPN's game cast sucks as well. It's been stuck on a VT punt with 12 minutes left in the 2nd quarter for the last 15 minutes.

ESPN's online offerings are horrible. Old school radio only for me

I don't know if you have tried another device or not but my IPad has been perfect.

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

Eh, it just evens out for all the ones they can't do in the hallways of the dorms.

The scrum for the touchdown is the greatest football call of all time.

This is undeniable.

For all those watching the game at home. Turn on ESPN during halftime. Ark-A&M going into OT.

I know it was a touchdown, but that didn't really feel like a good decision on first down....a more athletic defense may have picked it off.

Peoples having a day!

Side note , odd to see all the issues with the stream. 2nd game in a row WatchESPN has been silky smooth in HD for me here in Scottsdale

All them QB draws were just luring ODU into the chest bounce pop catch we just saw. Fuente truly an offensive genius.

Everyone's getting onto the offensive stat sheet today.

Kumah for 6. Who's with me?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I am! Hopefully Kumah is too!

The missed long connection was mostly him misjudging the trajectory and jumped too early. We need him to start making those plays and become a deep threat

If he kept running it comes over his left shoulder. Notice he always has to turn and face the ball.

Where is Lawson?!

ESPN needs to get with AWS and learn how to dynamically scale their streaming capabilities. This is lame.

Yeah just left the game at halftime (kids) and disappointed in the feed at home.

Now ESPN is buffering, cutting from the game and going to a commercial.

Looking forward to seeing some Bush

And #6 too

We were talking about the game still, right....?

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

In a game against Michigan, the ref's rule that Caroll Kumah? catch a drop.

Fuckers.

ETA: fuggit... I'm drunk. Whoever, whaterver.

Glad they didn't review that one; last angle looked like the ball bounced off the turf.

I've been impressed with Peoples's run today. He did a great job locating the hole and falling forward. On the other hand, McClease is not powerful enough to fight for the extra yard. I'm interested in seeing what Holston can do later today, but it looks like he's not trusted by the coaching staff in passing protection yet

I'd love a defensive or special team TD.

If Stroman stays in the game, we may get one. ODU's punt coverage doesn't look fast.

I'm going to say it.

That Freshman QB for ODU has stones, and doesn't make many bad decisions.

I like him.

I may just fear him in the future.

The kid's pulling some T-mobile moves in the backfield.

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

Keep the foot on the gas pedal!

Where is Lawson?!

We should try to get Peoples to 100 yd rushing

AUSSIE AUSSIE AUSSIE

Oi oi oi

I swear to drunk, I'm not God

Who is playing FS now?

Pauses in the feed and intermittent resolution issues. Piss poor effort by the worldwide leader in sports.

Special TEEEEEEEms.

DUrhhh.

How did he get out of that? Williams has a bright future

Williams is going to be a pain in our asses for years!

Where is Lawson?!

More buffering going on here now. Just for a second but bothersome.

Where is Lawson?!

McClease is a hard runner. Not the biggest guy and he's not going to break many tackles, but he make break a few ankles.

Where is Lawson?!

TOUCHDOWN.

Bye.... all of the students

Why not enjoy the rest of the afternoon at TOTS?

95 unanswered points. Casual.

Most boring job in the world: kickoff coverage team for VT. Excellent.....

You get to amp up the crowd (unless you're playing at ECU I guess).

Did anyone else catch Frank Beamer dropping the mic after the "Let's Go, Hokies!" Chant?!

Did it work any better this time?

Not sure. Just saw the reply on the stream. Best part was the cheerleader running to midfield to pick it up after him

God I hope someone got thaton video. It was great. They cut into the "let's go" chant with a music video. Frank looks around like "wtf" then literally does a mic drop and casually walks off the field. The second coolest part was the officials coming up to shake his hand and wish him well as he was walking off. His post coaching existance must be so cool.

I definitely saw it on video somewhere. I'll look for it, but it might have been Snapchat.

What happened to Holston? Why are we seeing Fox before Holston?

That's what I was thinking

Garbage time but not sure how to feel about non-garbage time given ODU had starters out on defense. I suppose only time will tell.

I'm so screwed. Took the over at 57 points...

So the announcer said that Fox was the 54th ranked RB in the country coming out of HS.????

Where is Lawson?!

ESPN, you suck at streaming games.

We win TOP.

Game over.

Seven and a half minutes left in the game, and I had my first buffer!

The worst I had had today was some fluctuation in video quality, but now it appears that ESPN is getting sleepy on me...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Fox gets coffee.

He is always closing.

Those are some large running lanes.

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

Fox knows how to read blocks, I'll tell you that.

(Right as I'm typing this, he bounces off Plantin's back.)

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Agreed. His cuts have been phenomenal. His size is really a big concern if we want to play him against better teams thought. He may be a great returner though

Yeah, I had him pegged as a returner as soon as I saw his recruiting video. I'd be surprised if he doesn't crack that depth chart next year with Clark and Stroman graduating.

Lol the garbage time RB's lead in rushing 2 weeks in a row.

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

Not sure if anyone else mentioned this, but Bitter tweeted that Divine Deablo is on the sideline in crutches and a walking boot.

I can't get the stream out here in the boonies to see for myself, but that sucks if true...

That would be terrible news....he has been great this season, and we'll miss his athletic abilities against other spread teams

Can confirm saw him after the game in street clthes and a boot being driven to the locker room. Hurt his foot or ankle on that interception.

I can't overemphasize how nice it is to be able to play our backups against "creampuffs" in the 4th qtr.

Fox ended up being the leading rusher.

JJ is going to have to be much sharper the next time out!

Where is Lawson?!

Fox had more yards rushing than ODU.

38-0 BRO!!!

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.

NOW we can look to Clempson (who only leads BC 7-0 at half).

Virginia Tech Hokies are averaging 40 points per game, defense is allowing 10.25 points per game.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Monarchs shall never win

Hello all you boys and girls I'd like to take you to the inside world It's quite an irregular place to be But never fear you're safe with me. Well maybe

100% This is our house who ever comes is going to get a good lesson DONT FUCK with the HOKIES

Hello all you boys and girls I'd like to take you to the inside world It's quite an irregular place to be But never fear you're safe with me. Well maybe

Virginia Tech has allowed zero points at home this season.

This comment is WAAAAY underrated

I swear to drunk, I'm not God

My prediction is that will STILL be the case after next week

Welcome to the Terrordome

Deablo in a boot. Get ready for the DBU shuffle. Welcome back Adonis.

Is Adonis's return confirmed?

Not yet, but I think it's pretty safe to assume CJF will play him against Clemson.

Laser said he went in for X-ray, results not in, but our for the game. Didn't sound good.

We put the K in Kwality

Did anyone else notice and get really annoyed about the music cutting in after the last "LET'S GO" with CFB and before the "HOKIES" response?

Anybody know when the last time we had two shutouts in a season? Or two home shutouts in a season?

We put the K in Kwality

Yes. We've have multiple shutouts twice:

In 2006 we shutout Northeastern (38-0) and Duke (36-0) at home.

In 2001 we shutout WMU (31-0) at home; Rutgers (50-0) and West Virginia (35-0) were road shutouts.

Actually, there were 4 shutouts in 2006. Kent State (the Brandon Flowers BOOM-POW game) and UVa were the other two besides NW and Duke.

Leonard. Duh.

You're right! We had multiple shutouts in 95, 97, 98, 99, 01, 04, 05 & 06.

I thought I remembered back to back shutouts in 2005. (Duke and Ohio, 45-0 both weeks)

That was still 11 years ago. Good to end that streak :)

Sorry if I missed this, but was Clark#89 out today?

I know there was only 1 KO to return, but he was the only WR I didn't see at all today. He seemed to get several series in prior games...?

He played but not much.

Hunter didn't dress today.

Why?

He was listed as questionable on the injury report. Hopefully there is nothing more to it than that.

Clark was in uniform, but did not play. Henrico Murphy returns kick- singular_ and did it well. Murphy also got the start at WR.

Anyone else on the East Side notice how bad the crowds were in the concourses, ramps and anywhere else shade was?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Didn't notice. Was in the stands baking

don't know if this has been posted, but the ESPN app is available on Directv. Easiest way to get to it is point at the ESPN channel and after 30 seconds a popup will tell you to hit the red button to go there.

At that point you have a selection of watching any game that ESPN has going.

This seems to have replaced the "ESPN Scoreboard" that the red button used to bring up.

Worked fine for the ODU game, although you couldn't pause or record it.
