If the refs had called holding instead of PI, we'd keep the ball here. :/

DOGGONE IT REFS

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

bummer, man, savoy has got to reel in those easy passes...

Can't put tipped passes on the receiver.

UT PROSIM

Unless they tip it

UT PROSIM

That was for Cam. The previous one was for Savoy.

He means the EASY pitch and catch the play before

Savoy dropped a pass that hit him in the numbers, on the prior play.

How come we just don't seem ready to play at the start of the game week after week?

Drop. That's savoy.

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

Great recovery by Brandon there. Wow.

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

So, if they can review this to see if the ball was tipped, can't they see that he was being held well before the ball was thrown?

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

Savoy. Youth.

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

I hate this announcer, isn't it the same "take that Virginia Tech" guy from the Purdue game?

Why does a tipped pass negate DPI? Still theoretically kept the receiver from catching the ball, no? (Serious question, I don't understand the rule here)

Stupid answer, but it just is.

Rule is that once the ball is contacted by either team in the air, all bets are off. I have no idea what the exact wording is, but the idea is that the ball in the air has been "defensed" once tipped.

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

Hm. That's dumb. Haha

NFL rules say that the rule applies from when the ball is passed to when the ball is touched by anyone. That doesn't explain anything at all, but it's the definition of the rule.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Think of it like a pass downfield that gets tipped up high. If it looks like somebody might catch it, you can then tackle that person before the ball falls to them legally (It's basically a fumble until it hits the ground once a pass touches somebody).

TD Savoy!!!

Consider the situation where the CB covering the intended receiver tips the ball just before it gets to the receiver.

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

Good defense

Great faycson.

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

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Once is a chance. Twice is a trend. Jj has now entered the brewer realm of tipped passes. Watch that for a continuing issue.

As much as it's bad that Cam isn't out there, it may be good to help the younger guys step up and grow up. Great work by Savoy and Murphy on that catch!

Wasn't the defenses fault, BC got two lucky bounces.

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

Who is playing right tackle, because whoever is over there isn't playing it at all. We might as well throw a pass to him since he's not blocking

Sack was a numbers issue. I don't care who's playing the position, he can't block 2 defenders.

Kumah got bailed out there

Not really. he was down then the ball was stripped.

KUMAH!

Kumah's most impressive catch-and-run yet. Also, that's not a fumble at all.

Bad play calling. Jet sweeps, QB runs? Just the wrong personnel for those plays, IMO. Fine to do those in the middle of the field to set stuff up, but you don't waste play SN in the red zone, and that's what both of those were, wasted plays.

I'm liking the relationship building between JJ and Savoy.

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

and with Kumah

Go Hokies

Anyone else want to see what Fox can do?? Fuentes tried all the other HB's

Maybe having Cam out is making the rest of the receivers stepup.

But I still want Cam back in the game.

I agree, just saying that is nice to see the other guys making more plays.

Hey look Chung didn't hold his block again. I'm sensing a trend...

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

it's not a trend, it's the way he plays

I love that Eric Kumah just wears his mouthpiece in his mask. Literally have never seen him put it in his actual mouth.

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

Doesn't look like Cam is coming back. Should be a great chemistry building game for all the wide outs

Great block by Keene on that

Let's get this game rolling. Offense and defense firing on all cylinders

Man outside of 1 play Keene is having an awesome game. He's a better blocker as a freshman than any of our WR's.

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

It's been mentioned already, but Cam being out is going to be huge for the growth of this team. Kumah is stepping up something fierce. The better chemistry Jackson can develop with Kumah, savoy, Keene, pimpleton, etal, the better for the rest year, as well as next year and beyond. Great opportunity to grow the offense.

$1,000,000 stairs?

"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

they have no Engineers there

I was wondering that myself. Maybe it was built in some historical area or something but I don't get it.

I am currently installing a 6 story million dollar stair. Not too difficult if using the right material.

"Facyson is a baller."
-CFB

We build multiple million dollar stairs every year. Easy to do when owner wants all high end finishes on a large stair or if it is curved or spiraling

As long as at least this score holds that will be three of the lines met in the first half. I'll be three for three.

Shoutout to the BC offensive lineman that signaled a first down when they gained no yards on 3rd and 2.

Great defensive stand, lets get 7 more on the board before half.

Great play call by BC just bad throw.

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

Time for another Power series to march down for score. Hopefully a good mix of run and pass.

Mook blew that up

He's definitely playing amped up.

why do we try running to the right, there's no blocking over there.

Should have been a touchdown there.

Savoys gotta fight for that ball. If he comes back to get that, it's at least a PI.

Jackson has to lead Savoy. Bad throw

Yet that is PI on us all the time for the DB not getting his head around...

Slye now needs 1 point to tie Shayne Graham's all-time scoring record

Looks like we need to get a touchdown then, if we're playing that you can't go over.

I think we're also seeing how important Cam is to this offense. JJ was learning to really really rely on him in tough situations.

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

Actually, I think this is good for JJ. He depends on Cam to bail him out too often even if it means throwing into double or triple coverage the last few weeks. Now he HAS to go thru progressions and build trust with the other receivers. This will help in the long run.

this /\

I think that we're seeing JJ put up 202 yds passing against a team that AVERAGES allowing 142 yd/gm passing, while the best WR in the ACC and a serious AA candidate is on the bench.

What happened to Cam?

Hurt his foot on his catch in the first quarter.

Foot injury. Don't think they have announced anything else yet.

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

Just pray nothing is broken

Just a sprain but not broken.

So many people in this thread are acting like Virginia Tech is a top 10 team and that BC is garbage. In reality VT is solid team trending upwards and BC is a solid middle of the road power 5 team. A 17 to 3 halftime score feels pretty good. Repeat this performance and tech wins 34 to 6 and most fans would be pumped city.

Not sure if BC is quite middle of the road P5, but they aren't far from it either.

I WANNA BE PUMPED CITY SO BAD!!!

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

Jon Laaser just announced on radio that Cam has a foot sprain, won't be back in for the rest of the game, but x rays were negative for fracture.

BC gives up 154 yd/gm passing (all games) and 142 yd/gm at home. JJ has 202 passing yds in 1st half. Great to see our QB lighting up a D that's selling out to stop the run.

According to HokieSports:

201 72 Passing

THat last stat is of course the most important one.

Just saw the new academic commercial featuring the new logo....

I don't like it.

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

Team looks a bit uninspired (not surprising after last weeks hype), looking forward to the bye week. Hopefully coach can get them focused for the 3rd so we can get the starters off the field early.

Hmmm, this is the D that held Clemson to 7 pts, through 3 qtrs. Seems like you are under selling VT having 17 pts and 255 yds while the guy who accounts for over 40% of the receiving yds has been on the bench.

Anyone notice how many snaps have been really high

Coleman Fox sure hasn't lived up to his "Impact Player" status noted at the start of the game tonight.

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

Definitely an ugly win

Happy for the win...but jesus, that was one of the most boring games I've watched. Just nothing going on with offense tonight.

I Cam't imagine why that was...

I thought we recovered fine in terms of other guys stepping up (Savoy, Kumah, Keene all contributed a lot tonight) - we just couldn't get out of our own way - the early turnover, all the fuuuuucking penalties, couple drops, and some really bad misses by JJ, when he wasn't running for his life.

Offensive line was a big disappointment tonight, esp after playing what (in my opinion) added up to a pretty darn good game against Clemson, net-net.

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

I mean, let's just call it what it was. We played poorly. Not at all to the level of our capability. The run game was quite terrible, especially against a defense that was supposed to be poor defending it.

I'd wager that French's review will point out that half the sacks were on JJ, not the OL.

I'd wager the same. And he'd be right.

Unfortunately, the OL is responsible for blocking for the running backs, too.

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

That said, Chung had a BAD night.

It just seemed like once we went up 20-3 we just started screwing around. On the plus side a lot of good plays made by Kumah, Dalton, and Savoy. Kinda glad they kept Cam out....

Time to go 1-0 against BYE next week!

Also...why do wins at Chestnut Hill seem so underwhelming lol

People on other boards are absolutely trashing Jackson right now. He was 22-33 and over 300 yards without Cam for basically the entire game. What more could you want? He's a Redshirt Freshman.

Crap like that is why I pretty much only come here any more. It is just nonsense.

It really is. I understand wanting your team to succeed. Everyone does but to be so critical as to trash a kid who threw for 300+ yards and completed 67% of his passes is beyond the pale. Don't understand how people can be so toxic over arbitrary things.

"...When we step on that field, they bleed like we bleed and we're gonna show the world."
-Corey Marshall

Threw for more than double the pass yd that BC allows in a game, and basically ran a "burn the clock" O for the last 20-25 min of the game.

People on reddit are basically calling for Cornelsen's head on a stake.

I've never seen so many people in an outrage over a win. May need to stop with those live threads.

There were a lot of calls that had me shaking my head.

I mean, I don't disagree that the play calling was suspect at times. The redzone efficiency is worrisome. We are limited at times as is on offense especially when a player as dynamic as Cam goes down. But Cornelson and Fuente have both shown the ability to put together solid game plans and put them into action. I consider myself a little high-strung as a fan but good god people are insane.

"...When we step on that field, they bleed like we bleed and we're gonna show the world."
-Corey Marshall

I go back and forth on what I think about Cornelson. I have been harping on the slow starts vs. Delaware and ODU as major red flags. Regardless, your plans go out the window when you lose your best receiver. With that in mind I think we did what was necessary to put enough points on the board to win while taking some risks in terms of passing to a lot of green players. Consider these numbers: Sean Savoy 9 for 139 yards, Dalton Keene 4 for 66 yards, Eric Kumah 4 for 53 yards, Henry Murphy 3 for 40 yards, Travon McMillan 1 for 13 yards, Cam Phillips 1 for 11 yards. That's an amazing 14.6 average yards per reception mostly to receivers who have not put up huge numbers in previous. games. I think at times last year we saw opportunity present itself and our team take advantage of it and put up massive numbers. If we consider Fuente's philosophy: Pass to Score, Run to Win you can see that was pretty consistent with tonight's game. Once we took a big lead we went away from all the passing and for the most part stuck with a somewhat pathetic running game. I think we need to reconsider some of our QB runs. I don't know if that is a blocking issue or if JJ is too apprehensive. I have noticed the delay plays on the QB keepers are either not fooling the defense or are so poorly executed they have become a liability. I will reserve my criticism for Cornelson's play calling until after our next game. With a bye week we should be able to either integrate more players along with getting Cam back or get those other players more snaps in practice if we don't get Cam back. As always I'll take the W and I'll also take the extra playing time given to green players.

My quick thoughts:

D very solid
DL still over pursues
OL was subpar (run blocking was terrible, Chung stood out...in a bad way)
Play calling is very curious. Our last 3 red zone drives, 0 pass attempts (1 sack, but we didn't even get the ball off). We seem afraid to throw...DCs will notice this.
WRs looked good/solid. Youngins stepped up (inconsistent, but good progress)

We put the K in Kwality

D very solid

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

We certainly have been conservative with our passing game inside the red zone. I don't think we trust any receiver to go up and win one-on-one. I don't think we are even comfortable throwing the ball up to Cam against a quality opponent like that. Last year we had Bucky and Ford. Eventually a WR will develop and be able to climb the ladder and make similar plays but right now we just don't have that.

"...When we step on that field, they bleed like we bleed and we're gonna show the world."
-Corey Marshall

But what happened to the Chris Cunningham special? And why abandon the quick slants when they worked all night?

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

That's a good point. The only ones who know for sure are on the staff. It's definitely frustrating watching us pile up offensive yards and not be able to turn that into 6. It's something that needs to be looked at and I'm sure it will be especially with the upcoming bye week.

Ugly win, but a win. Glad we get a week off to deal with these injuries.

I understand the BC defense is good but when will Chung lose his position to someone that can actually move his feet? He got beaten badly so many times tonight.

Unfortunately I think Chung won his position over players who aren't even as good as he is.

Our running game in the second half was ugly, the announcers were ugly, the referees were ugly, the fans in the stands were ugly, the play calling in the second half was ugly, the penalties were ugly. Let's face it, this was one flat out, thorough, thru and thru, uninspired, downright UGLY game. Strange, but I can't figure out why I'm so unhappy about having a win. It almost seems like a miracle we didn't manage to loose this one.

i very much felt the same way. this might be an unpopular opinion, but I think we have lost our edge when it comes to physicality. I remember when we used to swallow QBs and RBs up in the backfield on a regular basis. I remember when we used to be so good at one on one tackling in the open field that the opposing team would be physically afraid of us lining up at the line of scrimmage. I just haven't seen that with any sort of consistency. A few plays here and there are nice, but this used to be our bread and butter. Too often it seems like the backfield is pristine, or the WR or RB or even more embarrassingly, the QB takes 3 hits before he goes down 10 yards later than he should have. Even when we do make the tackle, so often the defender barely trips him up giving him another yard or two as he sprawls forward, as opposed to crushing the guy back onto his ass in a commanding fashion. I think we have lost our edge when it comes to physicality.
