I love Marty Smith, but don't get it twisted:

dude went to Radford.

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

So did Coach Beamer!

Edit: A little history courtesy of Radford University (link)

As the war progressed, Radford continued to survive through enrollment drops and further changes. In 1943 a merger was proposed between Radford and nearby Virginia Polytechnic Institute as part of a statewide effort to consolidate higher education institutions and give students the most adequate opportunity for a broad professional and technical education. As the Women's Division of V.P.I., Radford students would have the opportunity to pursue the same programs available to men and duplicate courses were eliminated between the two schools.

Let's Go

HOKIES

Ha, yeah. For grad school.

I find your equivocation disturbing.

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

Marty grew up just over the mountain in Newport and has been a lifelong Hokie fan. So, how is it NOT home for him again?

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

I know where he's from. I know who he pulls for. I was making a "but he went to Radford, so he'll never be one of us" joke. Sometimes we make jokes on here.

Besides, what's Marty gonna be? A Radford fan? Is that even a thing?

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

Gameday just said something about the Hokies wearing something special today. Anyone have any #sauces on this? I saw the official twitter posts about #allmarooneverything, but I didn't notice anything special.

I believe they meant AME to counteract Clemson being known for orange. They were leading into the uniform segment.

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

Clemson in all-white, regular orange lids.

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

Marty is the best.

I'm so hype

Let's get it today

How awesome was that Enter Sandman intro to the show

Question - not sure where else to put this.

Do you have to print out a physical paper ticket to get into the stadium? Or will they let me in by scanning the barcode off the PDF on my phone?

Twitter me

I've never done it on my phone or seen anyone do it. I would definitely print it out to be safe.

Print it. They will NOT scan phones!

Print out a bunch and bring your friends!

Gameday never disappoints.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

That stupid Miami chain. LPD > every damn thing.

Gameday gave the lunch pail some serious respect. They did a segment on Tennessee's new tradition of the "HTB" (Hunt the Ball) trash can and talked overall in general about some of the other "gimmicky" props being used by lots of teams. Then at the end of the segment, they said some props are "REAL" and talked about the lunch pail and what it means (including what's inside it).

And fired Skipper

Damn. I thought Skipper was doing a fine job and didn't deserve to be fired... Even though he did crash the ship on what should have been a three hour tour.

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

Definitely an original with some purpose behind it. Love the lunch pail and Bud! Not a gimmick in any way

FAM WISH I COULD'VE MADE THE TRIP. FREAKING IRMA RUINING THINGS.

TIGERS x2 (Clemson+Memphis) GOING DOWN TONIGHT.

EXIT LIGHT...

If I were guest picker:

So, here's what it says on paper:

  • Tigers are defending national champs.
  • They have superior talent at almost all positions.
  • They have superior depth at all positions.
  • They have faced and beaten better teams than we have this year.

(Lowers paper, looks at camera)

The Hokies?

The Hokies have stones!

Hokies for the win!

(Then I stand up to the sound of breaking glass, and do the Stone Cold Stunner on anyone who picked Clemson)

Wow. I haven't seen upper quad since it's been finished (at least that half). Damn it looks good with the T in V logo in the sidewalk and new dorms. That aerial shot was gorgeous

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

I am really shocked by the height of the buildings there. Been a long time...

Spotting quite a few hokie stone jerseys out at Gameday, fam

What does everyone think of the actual gameday setup?

I think it's strange that they put the Coca-Cola stands in the shade - you can hardly see them, lighting is weird. Also in the main stage shot, I wish you couldn't see that eyesore that is the brick backside of Squires. Wish it was all Hokie Stone. Torg looks great though!

Reporting live from the Pritchard-AJ lawn, scene is calm with occasional crowds headed to see the tail end of the Game Day experience. Every few minutes raucous cheers of "Let's Go...Hokies!" ring out from Alumni Mall, echoing between the Hokiestone-clad buildings and through the trees whose leaves are starting to show the telltale maroon and orange signs that fall is here. Folks, it's game day in Blacksburg, and it doesn't get any better than this!

Bruce is taking his celebrity picking very serious, look at home pouring through his notes between picks

I got the impression he may have been stalling so Corso had less screen time with that crack addled tiger head on

Thank god, Corso picked Clemson!

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

Does anyone know if he did that on purpose for the Hokies or if he was legitimately picking Clemson?

Haha Bruce was so quick on all his picks until ours and then he straight up stole the show.

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

He didn't need notes for that one.

He had so many notes! Dude was prepared!!!

Hokies.

Man, what a day! Sunny and 70 here in suffolk. Moved the tv outside and just cracked beer #1 for the day now that the daughter is down for her nap. Oh I wish I was in bburg!

Well shit, the show ran over and didn't record the Corso pick.

Paging Eshiben, I hear there are going to be thunderstorms in Blacksburg tonight!

If that's true I blame Corso...

I've been trying to watch various games on espnplayer for the last few hours and I'm getting constant buffering despite a good internet connection.....am starting to loose hope and am worried I won't be able to watch the game later....can anyone help me out with a stream?

Drink lots of beer. That should help with the streaming problem.

And if the prostate is enlarged, there will be serious stream issues...it may slow down to a trickle

Let's Go

HOKIES

I had a dream that James Clark caught a game-winning 80 yard bomb from JJ with the last play of the game to go down as the greatest finish Lane has ever seen. Finally, an (ex) OSU player gets to score on Clemson.

I'll admit, it used to be when VT was heading into a game this big, I used to really feel like a W just was not going to happen.

But all week and certainly all morning today I've just had this feeling that this is a totally new era for the good guys, and I just feel like they are going to get it done in front of the most lit stadium you will see all season.

It's going to be ugly, and it's going to take everything to pull it off. But I just feel it. Time for VT to flip the script

I normally don't like ESPN game promos, but I'm digging ours!

That's great to hear! I was there for the '03 Miami game and hope it's every bit as wild tonight with a similar outcome!
Go Hokies!!!

No way I make it through this game. I'm already so drunk

And I've already taken a drunk nap...woke up started again.

Heard Fowler on ESPN radio say that they were going to plug into Tech's audio so we hear Sandman loud and clear. He also said he's a huge Metallica fan and hoped to see them sing it live one day.

Fam, I've had my house broken into twice and my truck broken into in the last 8 days. Everything of value I own that was in my house is gone, and everything sucks. I could really use a win. (Sorry, not sure why I'm posting this here, I just need to vent).

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

Lets get a win and then move!

Where is Lawson?!

Hang in there.
Things will get better .... hopefully starting with this game.

Umm don't know of the news is out but appears Peoples is out, if him eating hotdogs at the in laws tailgate is any indication

You're correct. I don't like it.

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

Yeah he stated he had foot and ankle swelling, didn't elaborate anymore than that really

Let's get it on!! Waiting is the hard part

So says Marvin Petty.....

Please play with focus, effort, and zero quit. That's all I ask. (early penalties or lack thereof will be very telling)

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

Got my big ass class ring on, all set!!

I just started tearing up, watching everybody bounce to 'Enter Sandman'... missing that from 20+ years ago...

"...sticks and stones may break my bones but I'm gonna kick you repeatedly in the balls Gardoki!"

Go Hokies!

That was maybe the best coverage of Enter Sandman I've seen.

Bradburn's first bad punt? Crikey!

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Three and out, bad kick.

Not the best start.

...and there goes the standard slow start.

DAFUQ?

Good coverage by Facyson, it was just perfectly thrown.

I noticed the uncalled holding on that one.

Just last last time with the early 3rd down conversions.

YES! Holding them to three on that one was a victory for the defense.

Nice job.

ABC gave Enter Sandman a good coverage. I've never seen them actually allow it to be heard. Good job ABC

Alright good hold. Let's get Jackson settled and we will be fine

That was a victory.

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

A good defensive stand.
Now we need the O to roll.

Shegog huge right there

Shegog and Edmunds executed very well.

Come on offense! Take what they give you and let's get some points.

They're new QB is good, Jackson show us something special !!

Ahh hate that 3rd down there. If you want to go tempo then go tempo

It was a bit too predictable.

They checked the defense, and thought they knew how to get a yard. Just didn't work.

Where is James Clark? Murphy has fielded both kickoffs.

Those guys in turkey costumes have clearly been drinking since 9 AM.

Michael Vick sighting.

Sorry, unrelated thought.

Can't keep digging a hole for ourselves like this.

I'd say we're all feeling nervous but dude, please stop already.

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

Who's nervous? I came into this game expecting a loss.

Maybe, but I don't want to see it given away.

Make it competitive.

Yeah I think that's pretty clear given the string of extremely negative posts since kickoff.

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

If we want to run we should put Bush in the game, I don't see Jackson running far against Clemson and hate the thought of him getting injured.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Terrible idea.

No it's not.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

People need to read the community guidelines before down voting!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

strange, and passive play-calling on offense. What's going on?

That is what we do.... In bud we trust

Where is Lawson?!

We do tend to give away points in these games for some reason.

Can't do that and expect to win.

All games

Where is Lawson?!

What is up with the nonaggressive Bud calls this year. Our offense needs to step their game up. Another 3 and out and our defense won't last til halftime

He's brought the heat a couple of times, they haven't gotten there.

No pass rush. Dear KJ - you'll start from day 1.

He's right you know...

This ^^^^^^^^

Guys just seem a bit shaken by the big stage. Clemson is definitely playing much more composed.

As I put in my expectations, two early 3 and outs... now time to get it together.

We need a big response right now to get this crowd back in it.

That's on trem. Edmonds. He has to get his head in the game.

If they go up by 20+ before the half then that will decrease my confidence and belief that we will win.
EDIT: if they go up by 20+ and we haven't even scored a TD yet.

Trevon Hill does that jump on your back tackle quite a bit...fun to watch

Defense held. Let's go offense. Do something.

I hate football, so stressed

Ok..spot them 10. Better than our usual 14-21

Great job by the defense. Now the O needs to give them a break.

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

North south carroll please. No time to dance against that clemson speed.

Yeah, don't think, run

2 bad punts of 3 so far

Those end-arounds need to be executed WAY faster in order to be even minimally effective against that unit. I want at least a TD and 1-2 FGs before the half.

Would feel much better if we didn't give up that long TD; even with our lack of offense so far. We can do this.

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

I agree - we can hang

Outside of one breakdown the defense has looked pretty good so far. Clemson made some huge plays on the first drive to convert on 3rd but other than that I'm pretty happy with the D. The problem is that at this rate they are going to get gassed sooner than later and if that happens things may get ugly

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

The lack of pressure being generated by our front 4 is causing problems for our backend.

Two missed tackles there.

Mook got destroyed on that play by the QB

So did Edmunds.

So whose nightmare is this?!

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

This level of competition is MUCH higher than we've seen all year. It shows that we aren't used to it. Mook thought he could just run in there and get that QB. Not quite. Better break down and swarm.

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

Team motioning like we stripped the ball from Etienne. I mean, at least five guys pointed the other way. Can we get a look? Guess not...

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

THAT'S how you contain a QB. Bring Tim Settle near and let nature do the rest.

So we have had 2 very stupid penalties. Killed a first down and now killing are field position. Not acting ready for the big stage.

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

Offense needs to make a play now.

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

I want to upvote this 10 billion times but I don't have enough turkey legs

Meanwhile, Troy is up three scores at LSU.

I liked this game much better when I played it on NCAA 14 this morning...

Bad side: starting at own 6
Good side: (provided the offense executes correctly) Clemon D stays on the field longer. But they gotta be methodical, patience & get the shit done.

I'm glad to see the taunting rule is gone. Can't wait to see Settle tea bag their qb.

Again. Our youth is showing. We are being affected by the big stage. Still taking it in. Cam dancing, TMAC thinking. 2nd half should be better.

Edmunds is not having his best game.

I guess we're lucky Bryant can't throw

And Spence can't kick

hear hear!

I said it. I've said it MULTIPLE times. If the guys want to defeat a team of THIS caliber, they've got to come out equaling (if not excelling) the intensity of the crowd. They needed to have been preparing HARDER this week in practice than the way they are going to play tonight.

Got bailed out big time that drive

Lord, please let us sustain a drive........

More beer incoming.

These people
Are losing
Their minds

That's my strategy. We always look and play better when I'm drunk

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

Should be 3-0 right now. We really need a TD to turn the momentum now and make Clemson start doubting.

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

Probably just preaching to the choir here, but I despise Larry Culpepper.

Bryant is not hitting all those passes. Our Defense is doing its job. The offense is underperforming and not even playing with fire. They're getting pushed around. TMAC is all slow twitch and CAM is dancing. Get upfield and just get the first down. We can get back in this game.

Well, MOSTLY. There was a 2nd down passing play had both the DBs beat for coverage (thankfully Bryant overthrew yet again). But if that pass were shorter, 7 more pts for Clemson.

I disagree. Our secondary's open field tackling has been disappointing, but they've only scored 17 points in the 1st half. So far, this is on the offense's inability to do anything. Basically normal VT football against top 5 teams

I agree this is on the offense, but I have one correction to make:

Our secondary's open field tackling has been disappointingabysmal

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

I love Slye, but he's been arguably the biggest disappointment this season.

Let me add that I'm rooting for him to get back to last year's form. We'll need him at some point this year.

The offense has started to move the ball.
Slye missed but the problem may have been the hold.

Tough half there...

We were moving the ball during that two-minute drill. It'd be nice to have been that aggressive over more of the half... but I guess the coaches have their plan.

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

I was just trying to create some positive energy. I understand that one comeback game does not mean that we will always come back to win big games.

If it was 10-6, like it should be, I would put our chances at 50/50. Being down 14 means our team needs to show up in the second half with a whole new attitude. We need a break and we need touchdowns.

Our team right now looks like Rocky in Rocky III when Mickey had been scheduling all those cupcakes so he could keep the title. We are obviously not used to seeing this talent level - that QB and several of their receivers are making our players look like they're in slow motion. We will see if there are any adjustments that can be made second half. I just would like to keep it respectable and not turn it into a turnover fest.

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

So you're saying it's time to get the eye of the Tiger....?

You can tell we are basically outclassed in talent. This first possession for Clemson out of the half has huge implications. They score, it's over. But the ball movement was nice at the end there. Maybe we can build on that.

I wouldn't say it's over, but it does cause a significant, drastic statistical dive.

Yup. Looked like he gave zero effort or had no idea where his man was on one of their 30-yard gains and Te. Edmunds had to come over and clean up his mess

It's not over until it's over. Offense was looking better at the end of the half, time to get settled in and move the ball. I love Bud's D (feel free to quote that) but our offense has to keep moving the ball.

Did I mention that I love Bud's D? #wejustsackedyou #weknowyoulikedit

Time for a Kelly Bryant turnover on the opening drive.

No matter what happens in the second half, I want both teams to keep winning until December 2nd.

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

Agreed. This feels like A BC '07 situation (Except way less heartbreaking) where we get them back in the ACCCG and (hope to God) get sweet revenge.

this is about what I expected score wise. They have more talent and more depth across the board, and their very well coached. I am disappointed a bit in our D's tackling. Could have got off the field a bit quicker with some better tackling. And Edmunds breakdown on the long RB TD is exactly what you can't afford when you are undermanned. I do think there are cracks though. Force Bryant to make plays down field on D, and stretch the field with more passing on O. On offense it seems we are doing everything within five yards of the line of scrimmage, which I think has led to Clemson creeping up and crowding that five yard area. Make their secondary make plays because their front seven on D is the best in the business. Want to see the boys come out and let it fly in the second half, and whatever happens...happens. Nothing to lose at this point.

No use sulking over this one. We just aren't there yet.

The crazy part is that we are one defensive breakdown from this being a 7 point game.

The fact of the matter is that the ACC is all across the board better now than 10-15 years ago when VT thrived.

Beamer and co. got complacent, our recruiting slipped and our playcalling didn't evolve while teams like Clemson and FSU reloaded and took advantage of VT and Miami's complacency.

Merely getting back to the level we were at 10 years ago isn't enough, we need to surpass it and that's not going to be easy. We're nowhere there yet.

Bud has to figure out how to gameplan for mobile QBs. Designate two guys to spy each play. Play zone in the secondary and watch the backfield. If he runs toward the LOS, fucking EVERYONE in the secondary should fly to the QB and meet him with FORCE. He is 220 pounds. Hit him and wrap God damn it.

64 yards against the best (Or at worst 2nd best) D in the country and you think Cam is disappointing? There's still a quarter to play too. Plus the NFL needs possession receivers as well.

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

Cam>Ford

Cam may be a bit better than Ford, but it will be tough for either to have a career in the pros.

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

Who is calling these stupid plays? We got down the field without it. We don't need it.

God I thought cam was hurt

This sounds ruthless and mean, but if an injury to one of their opposing players increases our chances of winning, I'll take it.

Agree. The post above is tasteless and not in the spirit of what it means to be a Hokie. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt due to his history of regrettable drunk comments.

seriously! What are we thinking?

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

Man there was nobody open for CJ anyway.

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

Wow...just fucking go for it if a fg isn't what you want.

We've crossed over into desperation and looking pathetic.

That fake wouldn't have worked against anyone.

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

Why do we get cute with our playcalling in the redzone

You had 12 yards to go. WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT.

Holy fucking shit! Really? That while sequence. i just don't know.

Where's the beef?

Every good thing the Hokies have built from a perception standpoint is getting blown up before our eyes.

Pants shitting in a big game, conservative and BAD play calling

With a bunch of recruits in attendance.

How about they kick our ass at every position?

Where is Lawson?!

The odds are much better to have your QB make a throw on 4th and long vs. having someone who is not your QB make a play.

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

No! You take the points when you get them, I hate dabo's face smiling like that holy moly

Fuente's smirk of disgust made me die a little inside.

I wish we had kicked to help the final score impression and to give Sly more opportunities.

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

Also with the way the D is playing, if the offense can get anything going, being down by 18 and getting 3 scores put us in the lead not tied.

Why do OCs always try to outsmart the opponent. Why abandon something that was working for us to waste 2 plays trying to be cute.

Stop getting in our own way ffs

I wish we just went for it

I love Fuente, but that was some bad coaching on that drive. He needs to get in Corn's ass for the Carroll play, and whoever thought it was a good idea to run a fake FG on 4th and 12, wow...just...wow.

Just let JJ drop back and pass the ball. Even with them knowing it's coming, he's actually had a decent pocket for most of the second half. And throw the ball downfield, not east-west!

Stroman wow.

ut oh. redzone offense again now. Love the effort there.

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

YESSSS COME THE FUCK ON. STICK IT IN COME ON HOKIES

Thought for sure we were just going to set up for another field goal and fake it. /s

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

Yessssss lets go

God bless you, Stroman.

Two more TDs. Make that shit happen.

Stroman the spark!

Observation: Savoy is much more effective on the jet sweep than Carroll. And that's not just based on that touchdown run.

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

We are one touchdown away from a 7 point game!

I thought we would go for the block but that was so much better

They are going to keep running their QB now; low risk plays (which also have worked well for them tonight). We need to shut them down and create a turnover.

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

I have to say despite the score we actually got pretty good pass protection this half. Especially impressed then the tailback had Hback blitz pickup

Man that took balls of steel to not call for the fair catch right there. I love it.

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

Stroman had no business catching that punt but heeeeyyyyyy!!!!!

Where's the beef?

If he didn't at least fair catch it we would have lost a lot of hidden yards there.

There's a reason why he's my favorite player. He just has no fear when it comes to punt returns. Doesn't hurt his coverage skills have drastically improved to the point where he may be our best CB.

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

We think that we are so much more than we are.

Where is Lawson?!

Sigh. Musky go sober up.

Not really messed uup. We got used.

Where is Lawson?!

Wooo I can give out legs now! Feel like Oprah

there's hope, only a fool's hope, but just a sliver

if only we'd kicked the FG on 4th & 12

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

Now I am more mad about the stupid fake field goal. (. . . and everything else bad that has happened tonight.)

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

This is the first game I can remember where the #25 has been a let-down.

THAT'S the tackling I've been wanting all game.

Tremaine meet Ms. Kelly!

Kelly Bryant... I don't think I know her

That is a NASTY tackle. In a good way.

FUCCCCKKKK HIM UPPPPPPP

Tremaine should definitely NOT go pro after this year - he is not ready. Now that was an EPIC tackle in space - EPIC - but he clearly has some things to learn. Just IMO - hard to turn down $$$$ if its in your face.

I believe this COMPLETELY nullifies the "men among boys" sentiment. More talent and depth. Sure ok. But we can beat them.

yes! down by 14 with 11 mins to play, and the defense playing much better

Has Clemson made many mistakes? None really except for a few penalties --> it's hard to beat a loaded team when they play basically perfectly.

Are you fucking kidding me!

Where's the beef?

THAT is why we are not ready. WE are not Ready guys. Sorry.

Well, we had chance

Are you FREAKING kidding me?

2 Turnovers. Can't win that way.

No PI call and then that?

Welp.

make that 3 scores, yuk

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

News flash -
God is not a Hokie. There is no God.

Offense is basically -4 points this game. That's awful.

Deja vu (circa 2012) on that play...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

14 points off of turnovers. Clemson is a better team. Giving them an easy extra 14 points makes winning almost impossible.

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

Well, it's nice to share. Clemson hardly needed a gimme though.

Why can't we have nice things?

Just not ready yet .

These people
Are losing
Their minds

Alright I'll say it again but add on. We are 3 bonehead mistakes (the Feaster pass, the fumble, and that rediculous interception) from this game being tied. Man that's frusturating.

Edit: And add in the missed field goal and the fake and we would be winning right now.

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

Unfortunately, if we are going to be the great team that we expect to be, we have to execute all of those plays the exact opposite way.

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

Bingo. Great teams don't make those mistakes in the big game.

And add in that we are lightyears behind Clemson, and will be for awhile

I'm not saying we're on their level yet but the numbers are the numbers.

That kicker just lost his job as the backup kicker.

Downvote for that? Sarcasm is lost on people I guess. I guess it's just the FOOTBALL God that isn't a Hokie
