GIFTORY: Frame-by-Frame Highlight Reel of Virginia Tech's 38-0 Shutout of Old Dominion

The Hokies thumped the Monarchs.

[Mark Umansky]

Virginia Tech earned its second shutout of the season, secured College GameDay, and remained undefeated. Cue GIFTORY.

SEXY SCREEN.

That feeling when you realize College GameDay is coming to Blacksburg.

LOOK WHAT I FOUND.

Wait for it. Wait for it. ... There it is!

"See in my opinion, I thought it was a one-on-one matchup with Cam," said Josh Jackson of his Phillips-to-Peoples touchdown pass. "So I just threw it up to him, and saw it got tipped, I think it hit Cam in the hands, and Peoples caught it. I just kind of laughed. Then I saw Fuente and I like, 'Oh crap.'"

Consider your GIFTORY request honored, Charles.

GIFTORY, out.

I love the girl in the white brimmed sunglasses (second to last gif) that's looking down her shirt and is like "Yup, they're still there" then proceeds to lick her lips.

She's just checking out that 2nd half airplane bottle of bourbon.

I completely missed that when I created it.

The woman farther up is licking her lips too. What is going on over there?

For some reason everyone forgot the sun worked that day, and chapstick was nowhere to be found. I was guilty too. There wasn't one cloud that day and the sun was brutal.

Funny you brought up "there wasn't one cloud that day"

As one does, I was drinking.... and during a lull or time out (I forget) in the 3rd quarter, trying not to heat stroke, I randomly blurted out "I JUST WANT ONE CLOUD!"

Apparently the neighboring fans thought it was funny.

Chicks dig it when Frank drops the mic!

In Bud we trust

The Wyatt Teller shrug when Jackson throws that TD tip is awesome.

Teller to JJ "Better lucky than good!"

Where is Lawson?!

Better lucky than good.

This is what I get for not refreshing the page before posting.

^^ Both of y'all can take a two-day-old drink. :)

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Hadn't seen the mic drop, so that made my morning. I'm convinced Frank could do damn near anything and it'd be amazing.

I haven't seen much talk about the Lets Go Hokies "tradition" this time.... how was it? Did they change up anything from the first week?

Yes. They had a music video start blaring and cut the crowd off right in middle/end of "Let's Go" and before "Hokies".

It was much improved this week. Frank did the first "Let's Go" and then the crowd took over in the usual cadence.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

Now let's do that again against Clemson. Drop the mic, With the win!

Jackson and Teller's reaction to that TD is my favorite part of the whole play, lol

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Now figuring out a way to gif Kyle Chung picking off the corner on the Cam screen

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Pop quiz time: what coverage was VT in on the INT (first gif?)

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

I have no clue, idiot at football other than what you've taught me here, but I am going to guess man free. Seems like everyone is man to man except Diablo at free safety. Amirite?

Robber?

Defensive

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

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

Man free? Looks like only one guy deep with four guys in coverage.

I think I counted a 5-man rush with one of the D-lineman dropping into a zone. Means we sent 2 LBs on a blitz, so maybe out of a dime package as well?

EDIT: Dime package makes sense on 3rd-and-long in an obvious passing situation.

#LPD coverage

Let's Go

HOKIES

is there a previous post or information session I can attend to learn more about defensive schemes and packages?

been watching all my life and know the basics in man vs zone, but since I never played I don't know the ins/outs of particular nickel/dime, etc schemes.

Cover 1 Press Man #NCAA14

Cover 1 robber? Or spy?

Edit: it's cover 1 robber. I see the LB drop back into coverage

Let's Go

HOKIES

You are correct. I missed that LB dropping when I posted my guess above. Have a leg.

Thx. LBs show blitz and bring the heat with the boundary LB dropping back as the robber.

Do we get an "A", French?

Let's Go

HOKIES

Isn't robber coverage where the safety covers the zone closer to the LOS and the corner covers the deep zone. This way the safety is considered the robber since he is jumping the WR route on his way to intercepting the pass (ie robbing). Looks like Deablo is the deep zone the entire time.

"Facyson is a baller."

I thought robber is where the DE drops into coverage after showing rush so the QB assumes that space is clear.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

sometimes its referred to as the DE dropping into robber coverage on a zone blitz, but more often it's simply referred to as a zone blitz where the DE drops into a short zone coverage..

when I think robber I think a safety coming downhill or moving laterally at the snap to undercut a route that the QB might expect to break open over the middle based on linebackers vacating the area they'd normally drop back into by blitzing or following an RB out of the backfield.

I think you are correct. I think we drop an end into coverage on quarters some to take the zone of a blitzing linebacker to prevent the QB from making the hot read pass into the zone left by the blitzer. It looks like man with a single safety (man cover 1 as said above) to me, with Mihota spying the QB, though he might have the RB.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

correct... 'robber' coverage generally refers to a safety coming up and playing short zone, often by sliding under an expected post or crossing route. They either rob the offense of the route or rob the offense of the ball, depending on whether the QB notices them... Linebackers or linemen dropping back and playing under short routes can be considered robber coverage as well.

Single high

Looks like cover 1 with a spy on a fake blitz.

We wont win the race until a trophy is in the case!

Thing I love about that screen play:

  • Peoples selling the run fake instead of bailing straight to the flat and tipping off the D.
  • Jackson selling the rollout to the right, getting all the D to cheat that side.
  • O-linemen selling the run fake and getting "beat" before getting a clean release.
  • O-linemen convoy giving enough space they don't get in each other's way.
  • O-linemen keeping their heads on a swivel.
  • Chris Cunningham getting a sweet block on the linebacker at the 2nd level.
  • Hezekiah Grimsley getting a sweet block on the linebacker at the 2nd level.
  • Braxton Pfaff's 4 second 20.

Things I hate about that screen play:

  • Wish it would have happened on the far 20 -- that play would have gone for 80 yards easy.

I don't know the ODU player crumpling to the ground in front of the line of blockers screaming "not in the face" was my favorite part of that screen.

That's what she said.

Where is Lawson?!

I personally think Jackson could have sold it a bit more while rolling out. He only rolled out a few steps before opening his shoulders to go to the opposite side to Peoples.

Against a better D, they might sniff it out?

You can tell this is the son of a coach. More concerned with the response from his coach than the crowd.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

From JJ's comments, it sounds like Cam was supposed to be there. Does that mean Peoples was supposed to be somewhere else?

"Our job as coaches is to influence young people's lives for the better in terms of fundamental skills, work ethic, and doing the right thing. Every now and again, a player actually has that effect on the coaching staff." Justin Fuente on Sam Rogers

People's postgame interview noted that he was running a wheel route so it was where he was supposed to be. Fuente stated that normally the play doesn't go for that long so the overlap doesn't normally happen... jus goes to show The wheel route is always open

I swear to drunk, I'm not God

Just like Danny Coale, the wheel route is always open.

You had me at meat tornado.

Yeah, except Cam didn't catch this ball.

If you're reading the above post and thinking, "is this guy serious?!?," you can safely assume I'm not.

I think Peoples was running the right route. Fuente said they don't usually hold the ball for so long on that play before throwing, so that's why the spacing was messed up.
Edit: Beat me to it

Peoples looked to be on a wheel route. Play design probably expects a good bit more separation between cam downfield on a deep corner route at 30+ yards and the wheel route at 15-20 yards. Maybe designed as a zone buster (deep safety stays with Cam = Peoples open, deep safety crashes on Peoples = Cam open) but ODU was in man-to-man.

Jackson held the ball a little long before realizing it was man-to-man and Cam was in single coverage... then he put a lot of air under the ball, which allowed Peoples (who played FAST against ODU) and the DB covering him to catch up to Cam & his defender in the endzone.

In rewatching the gif though I think Cam catches it if Peoples isn't as far downfield. The DB covering Peoples disrupts the ball Or at least Cams vision causing the bobble

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Consider your GIFTORY request honored, Charles.

Thanks Joe!

New life goal here.

The man himself...

Nicely done!

I gotta ask...how did you know? No one else in the frame had any idea.

The camera man is an assistant principal at the high school I teach at. My brother (sitting to my right) and I had been posing and throwing up the VT hand signal right before this shot, thinking we were live then. I threw the thumbs up after that when the camera man waved at us, thinking that we had been on tv. Not realizing that I was live at that point.

What do you use for GIF creation? Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, like 800 times.
