Maybe a dumb question, but will this game be nationally televised on ABC? I had to unexpectedly travel to central Wisconsin (two hours north of Madison) for family reasons this weekend.

Yep.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I think so. It is here in SW Virginia.

Sounds like your trip could be for not great reasons. Hope the fam is ok, fam.

I believe so. It's airing here in Rapid City.

Shit.... Last time a game day thread didn't start with "Lets go" we lost to Clemson.

Get it together people.

Morning Hokies, how y'all doing?

I'm gonna have to take a nap at some point today. My littlest one isn't feeling so well, so we've been up most the night.

BUT I'LL BE READY TO GO COME GAME TIME!!! FUCK MIAMI

LET'S GOOOOOOOOO

It must be going around...

LETS GOOOO

HOKIES!

Welp, wrong reply button.

LOL I got ya

Good guy wasknick

Either this game will be close win for either side or a blowout win for the good guys. First game all season I've been nervous about.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

My gut tells me this should be a fucking blow in favor of the good guys....

My brain says to temper my expectations, and be prepared for a wild ride.

So, you all know I love Marty...and I know it's his job and all...BUT WTF IS HE DOING IN THIS SHIRT?!!!!

Marty, oh no...

His job?

We are the Hokies. We will prevail. We will prevail. We will prevail. We are Virginia Tech.

He was wearing it for an ESPN promo. So...yeah...his job.

Which one did you go to?

Boxcar in Greensboro. I have nothing to compare it to, but I had a blast.

I've been to the Boxcar in Raleigh a few times. Always a fun time!

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Important question:

Do I mute the TV and listen to Laaser and Burnop in sync with tonight's game OR do I listen to Fowler and Herbie?

The only problem with radio over tv, is the radio broadcast is usually ahead. So you know the result of drives before the happen.

For those who listen to the radio while watching our games on TV, is there a good way to get the radio audio and TV video to sync?

TiVo or other dvr Device.

I would expect radio to be ahead of the TV broadcast, which DVR wouldn't be able to help. Is this not the case?

That is correct.

Yep, DSP is a hell of a thing, but it does have latency.

The Hokie Xtra app stream was behind the TV coverage last week. You could try using that.

So late the the response here - but I use the TuneIn radio app and listen to WTON 1240 out of Staunton VA. The radio is about 30 seconds behind the tv broadcast, so with Comcast X1, you can pause live tv and allow it to sync up.

Fowler and Herbie are better than most national combos, but I'd go with our guys every time. Plus I kind of enjoy the delay, because you get to hear the awesome events described, so you kind of know something good is going to happen once the TV catches up.

GOOD MORNING HOKIES!!!! It's game day finally! Checking in from the other side of the world in Guam. Gonna take a short nap here soon and then back up at 5:30am for the 3:30pm games. Today is going to be a great day!

Hahaha wow. I have other friends in Guam that will.be watching. Hokie nation knows no bounds.

The Miami narrative on ESPN is so nauseating...how the hell is Miami feeling disrespected?!

Miami feels disrespected in every game. Every. Game.

It's a talking point that's 30 years old.

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

because VT didn't recruit any of their players.....

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

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

Man, Dez picked Miami on Gameday. He's usually at VT lean easy. Surprised at this pick. Bear picked them as well. Spread is so close that it's basically a "pick'em" game.

If our defense can play as solid as they have played and not let any big plays bust then I think we take the win. If they give up the big plays might go the other way.

Getting more nervous now as it's getting closer. I think we may need Slye in this game. We can't afford to go for it on 4and 5 from the 20 like we did last week. Again, I'm assuming that was more due to the weather and the score at the time. I say we take all the points we can get.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

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

Dez picking Miami is a good thing.

Gameday just talked about the game, and they're all going with the Canes because the team feels disrespected. They even all said going with an emotional pick is stupid but did it anyway.

I couldn't feel more confident going into this game. People are openly admitting that logic is thrown out to think Miami will win. We got this

"Some days you’re a horse and some days you’re a horse’s ass. I’ve been a horse’s ass for a little while." - Roy Halladay

Pollack said he was 💯 Hokies

Only 2/3 went with Miami and one of them was because "he knows for Miami players..." I don't think much stock should be placed in their picks.

For a company that seems to be loving the ACC lately, I find it odd that ESPN said we'll "almost certainly" know who plays in the ACCCG after this week. Do they not see that we have more Coastal games after this week? Maybe they think we only have LOLUVA left on the schedule?

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

Pollack's loving us today. Says VT should have a decent shot at CFP if they win out. "Their schedule is GT, UVA, and some other team that they'll beat!"

Gameday!!!!!!!

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

I think I've been accidentally watching this gif for 14 straight hours

I believe that's way above the 4 hour theshold to seek medical attention.

LET'S GOOOO...

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

HOKIES!!!!!

So get this - I'm on my way to Charlottesville decked out in Hokie gear to set up my tailgate for a game being played in Miami.

Long story short - I'm a VT alum with stepdaughters at VT, and yes, at UVA (I came into her life too late to show her the light - lord knows I tried!). The Wahoo is a senior and my wife and I are going down to "chaperone" the 4th-year fifth (Google it). I said fine, but prepping for the Hokies big game takes precedence, so I'm wearing the O&M proudly.

Any C'ville Hokies in tailgate withdrawal come by have a beverage or brat, and make fun of the drunk Wahoos. We'll be at 1946 Lewis Mtn Road.

You can get drunk on Zima?

Lol, this weekend is different. The 4th fifth tradition is drinking a fifth before the game. My daughter is sharing with us, but the guys are working on their own. However, in true Wahoo spirit, one of the housemates is drinking a "fifth" of wine......

Amazed they can get the stick out of their ass long enough to actually drink something that'll get after ya. It's amazing the things we'll take on for our kids. But at least you'll be giving them a taste of what they'll see in a few weeks. Hokie turnout! Now if you were a fighting man and opened up a can on them well it'd be a typical experience for them when Hokies show up.

David Pollack was talking about if we beat Miami, win our final three, and the rematch and beat Clemson in the ACCCG on Gameday. "Why not Hokies in the final four?"

"Tyrod, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has a man open, CAUUUGHT! Danny Coale, all the way!"

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever the hell is playing Tennessee.

1-0 baby!

let's go 1-0 seven times in a row!

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

Yeah and then someone mumbled something about "two-loss conference champions" being a discussion to definitely have later, as if they think we would have two losses if we win out. Anyone else notice this BS?

Still I loved how they completely dissed Nar-Douchey and Pitt when talking about our games remaining after scUM.

Someone post their Hokie tailgate food!

Reach for Excellence!

VT Football: It'll get after ya!

Proud Hokie since 2004.

Not a tailgate (more of a home-gate), but I'm smoking 6 pork shoulders for this game with all the fixin's!

Pics or it didn't happen.

This is the before. The after will have to come in about 3hrs (once they've been on for 22hrs).

Lot 18 is in NOVA today doing the same thing!

Woke up to my fiance bringing me an Irish coffee and my Chancellor jersey in bed.

Its Gameday!

For other Hokies like myself that are out of the US, you should check out US TV Now. It is mainly for military and ex-pats, and you can watch without a VPN. The free account has network TV so it has the game on ABC today. One of the local channels on there had the Duke game last week (also free) and it was the best quality stream I've ever gotten in Asia.

VT BSEE '98, VT MSME '01

You just changed my life. Down in Oz with a VPN but the ABC go site has been terrible lately. I just watched the Klempson game with this...perfect. All the thanks.

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

Help!
On the road for the weekend, need to know the best place to watch the game in Winchester. Suggestions?

"The workhorse again... OOOOOHHHHHHH... Terrell Skinner just got flattened!"

I went to union jacks in the walking mall downtown for part of the UNC game a few weekends ago. Its alright for a chain bar.

Where's the beef?

50/50 Taphouse is a pretty good time. I don't frequent Winchester though, so there might be another more Hokie-leaning establishment another TKPer would know of.

Mark?

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


Edited: Wahlberg

"Mark from Winchester" is a phenomenon that happened, like, a year ago(?). Can't remember his handle on here, but kind of a legend.

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

Oh damn, thanks for the info. I haven't TKP'd hard enough the past 2-3 years. Grad school will get after ya.

50/50 Tap house is your best option. Source, I am from Winchester.

Sipping some dogfish old school while getting the 2yo ready for bed. Should be primed for game time.

Drinking a coffee stout I just kegged on Wednesday

I think it may have contributed to the near heart attack I had watching Clemson- North Carolina.

Repping VT here in Carter Finley, this place is lit!

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

Watching that now. They always play Clemson tough.

Win this one and we're in the top 10 Monday morning based on how other games are playing out right now

Win this shot and it's 8-10 ranking next week ladies. I can't handle this.

Where is Lawson?!

Man there is a huge opportunity sitting right there for this team tonight.

Note the time!

Ok just downed my first vodka. I'm a leg whore. Leg me. Pacing myself for the late game.

Easy does it......expect nothing. I can't afford a new TV right now!

Where is Lawson?!

Warming up on some Buffalo Trace. I have some Blantons and some Yellowstone bourbon and Glenlivet 12 when things get serious. Good thing I get an extra hour of drunkeness sleep tonight

You deserve a leg for the Blantons a personal fav. It's Eagle Rare here tonight with the only limit being how this game goes.

Willett is another fav of mine, but its difficult to get in MI. I have a source that comes up from KY every couple of months. I usually get 3 or 4 bottles each year.

Bourbon or Rye? My wife always has a bottle of Willett Rye open and another in reserve. She usually can only find it when we drive down to Cincinnati/Covington.

Bourbon. Haven't tried their Rye, yet.

Anything made by Buffalo Trace is alright in my book. Finding it here in Winston Salem at the abc store is always hit or miss. I want to try the Pappy Van Winkle 23 year.

A friend of mines dad worked for one of the NASCAR teams and got a bottle of PVW 20 yr family reserve as a gift or something. Damn I wanted a drink of that.

I can't decide if the game thread will be a good place to be win or lose or even worse than usual?

Opening shot of the stadium. Maybe 50-60% full.

We put the K in Kwality

Was about to post that unsurprisingly the turnout is pathetic.

WHY AM I SO NERVOUS ABOUT THIS GAME?!?

Cause this determines the coastal

Technically it doesn't since UVA beat GT... but yeah...

I really want us to win one of these national primetime games. Yeah we beat WVU but this is different. Tired of being the bridesmaid.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Oh shit. Both of the Mothership's talking heads picked us...

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

Yeah, but Desmond didn't so its good.

Booger picked Bud over the Miami quarterback, I thought his comment was entertaining.

Do we ever win the toss? Seriously.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

I'm pretty sure we won it last week against Duke

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

For some reason, feels like we lose the toss more than you would think. No worries. I'm on edge. :-)

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Saw the opening shot and was like "wow there's alot of....pe **shows upper section*** ahhhh nvm"

UVA lost to richmond

I was hoping we were going to clobber the QB on that reception.

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

I was right there with you.

Alexander has to lay the boom there....

Where's the beef?

Great job getting to the QB. Let's keep that up.

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

Tim Settle fought off 3 defenders. BEAST

Anyone else not able to find a seat. So nervous.

They are already trying trick plays and two false starts, they seem scared.

UT PROSIM

Try the stadium. Plenty there.

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

Gotta smash Rosier in that play. Bad conversion to give up, but I like what I see from the D line

I thought Ryan Switzer got drafted?!

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

This is looking like the typical slow start

My nerves are not holding up. Can't yell like a banshee either. Little one has stomach bug. I hated that dumb qb pass.

Rosier is only going to make 2 or 3 of those plays tonight.

Refs gonna start calling this center for his head snaps???

Where's the beef?

DLine getting decent pressure so far. Need to keep it up.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

Goddamn QB scramble.

We put the K in Kwality

Damn someone told them about our Achilles heal!

That was absolutely crappy. We were totally outplayed there.

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

The app is absolute shit tonight.

We better pick off one of those wounded duck WR throws.

We put the K in Kwality

MOOKKKKKKK

Now THAT is our team! LET'S GO!!!

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

Mooooooooooooooooooooooook

I know its early, but that stop could be a game changer

Where's the beef?

I agree. Let's call the game and go drinking.

We put the K in Kwality

If only it were so easy

Where's the beef?

Mook Fucking Reynolds.

We put the K in Kwality

MOOOOOOOOOOOOOK

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

Oh hell yeah big win right there

M000000K

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

good stop, buuuut, I think that should've been a PI on Alexander

Or false start on the center with tourettes or the holding when berrios tackled the DB of rosiers long run....

Where's the beef?

Possibly. He did get his head around while the ball was in the air and then turned back around. I wouldn't have been surprised if they called it.

They are allowed 5 yards, but looks like the WR was holding onto the inside jersey.

Good no call.

Goal line stand! MOOOOOOOOOOOOK!

2 trick plays, one off the wall read option. They can't beat us straight up.

MOOOOOOOOOOK!!!!!!!!!!

Fucking MOOOOOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKK. Is it just me or is it a wonderful thing to see him wrap someone up?

Warning- Filter lost.

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

That wasn't a QB scramble that was a called run the whole way. Let Walker get upfield and bam big hole to run through.

...and they missed the open filed tackle on Mook.

We put the K in Kwality

Great stop!!

This is a game where I think you need to take all the points that you can get. We'll see if that decision is costly at the end.

Ball was at the 15 when he slid - bad spot there.

OU has 785 yards today. Damn.

We put the K in Kwality

I'll take dynamic Mcduo and a score and lots of TOP.

Why are we not throwing at all?

Oline c'mon

Can't block 8 with 5.

Our lack of a deep threat is hurting us bad.

Any other school put their student section on the 50?

We put the K in Kwality

Not happy with that result; however, we did change field position if we get a good punt.

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

Can't run against 8 in the box. Need to play action there.

OC needs to see that and play all against it.

We put the K in Kwality

And McMillion misses a pass block badly.

Just expressed the same sentiment but in a more angry tone to no one listening in my living room.

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

Although we stalled, probably consider that series a win (goal line stand, gain some yards, punted, penalty).

We put the K in Kwality

We basically flipped the field there.

Expect more blitzes, because holy shit.

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

Yeahhhhh this is going to be tough.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

3 and out here would be great to stem momentum they have

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

Come on Adonis. Wrap up. Is Stroman injured?

Alexander gave too much cushion.

Would love to demoralize them with a forced turnover and score.

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

Good seeing SS on the sidelines. Like that guy.

We put the K in Kwality

Stroman house it please!

We need to score. I need a beer.

We put the K in Kwality

My butt cheeks clenched so tight right now

Just keep running the damn ball. Run defense seems weak.

Our punt was basically 60yards. Theirs 37. Hidden yardage, boys. Hidden. Yardage.

We put the K in Kwality

I don't get how they can be pumping artificial music and noise when our offense is already lined up.

Because it's Miami

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

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

An de bak!

It's supposed to be illegal (well, against the rules).

We put the K in Kwality

Slow start for our Offense. Bend But Don't Break by our Defense. Not too surprised. Now time to start scoring.

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

Yeah not surprising but was hoping to punch them in the mouth.

I wouldn't call it slow. We did move the ball a bit and get some first downs. Maybe, sluggish?

Regardless, I will take some scoring now, please.

We put the K in Kwality

I think Dalton Keene is gonna be monster down the road, and I also think he has a big ass play or two in him from here on out. Picks up blocks in the backfield harrrd.

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

He is what you call a Willing Blocker.

We put the K in Kwality

Seems like we are slowly getting settled and it helps that haven't been behind in this process.

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

Lol Arby's with the shout out.

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

Love JJ, but excited about what a more athletic quarterback adds to offense.

Damn QB draws! JJ isn't fast enough for those!

Cornelsen needs to stop calling non option play runs for Jackson. He's not fast enough to make that run.

Idk about you guys but if I'm not on fire, I wouldn't like to be sprayed with an extinguisher.

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

Pin them deep Bradburn!

I'll be damned. Miami does have fans. There's a surprisingly decent crowd at this game.

“You got one guy going boom, one guy going whack, and one guy not getting in the endzone.”
― John Madden (describing VT's offense?)

Their line is holding almost every play

Our defense is the best unit on the field, but Miami's play calling has been better so far

Great call. That screen pass was well timed.

We put the K in Kwality

Disagree, Miami's D has been the best unit so far IMO.

Well you can thank our bland and questionable play calls.

Won't argue with that...

Unfortunately, you are correct (so far tonight). We are now being totally outplayed.

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

Hill's gotta wrap him up, there.

This PI call is BS. He was playing the ball

If they're going to call that, they need to start calling holding on the OL.

We put the K in Kwality

Alexander getting abused

Horseshit!

"I'm a Miller Lite guy, always have been, since I was 8." -John Daly

They won't get many 87 yard drives tonight. I just hope the PI calls and lack of Off holding calls go both ways.

PI call in the end zone was garbage. Both were questionable imo. However talking heads fully agree with refs and they keep the drive alive.

Some fairly conservative play calling for VT so far, especially on short third downs

The Dude Abides

I hate Miami so bad

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

I'll give them 1 if those 3 PI calls. That's hard to overcome. Basically, just throw it up deep and rely on PI to get you a first down and keep the drive moving.

We are even punting like shit.

0 return yards. That's not bad.

We put the K in Kwality

40 yard punt with no return is good tonight. The Miami return guy is good.

This feels like our offense from the Clemson game. Playing way too scared and worried about turnovers. The only reason this isn't worse it because Miami isn't as good as Clemson on offense

Lot of football left but I want to see the playbook open up a bit and I want to see us not get behind the chains.

It's like steinsprings calling plays again our offense looks so bad right now

LB and safety both running to the same hole. Opened up a huge hole for the RB. Gotta be smarter than that.

Motu was out of position on that play. Fuck!

I wasn't going to do it but I'm breaking out the (relatively) heavy stuff now. Just can't take this one sober.

Slow starts rearing their head again. Worst possible start to this game.

Got it pretty well covered there.

Offensive play calling is a LOT easier when your QB isn't getting mauled on every play.

Jackson isn't all that fast. Fast is the hallmark of a successful VT QB.

Everything that can go wrong will go wrong. It is a theme and has been since last season. Tennessee, Clemson both times, and now Miami. Big stages are not our thing, neither is playing in the Carrier Dome. Hate to say it but facts are facts and they do not seem to be changing.

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

Tackling has sucked and the DL cant get off blocks.

Where's the beef?

I have to agree. We're doing okay in the running game, but it's enough on its own, and we need to trade some blows. Miami's throwing it over everyone's heads to talented receivers = points (bs PIs or not). The offense is going to have to throw it around too to score some points.

If we had a good RB that first carry of the game was 6 pts.

Where's the beef?

I'm trying to stay positive... it's still very doable. I just wish I could figure out what the offensive staff is thinking

If you have any fast offensive plays to add to the running game, it's time to add those in.

There isn't a lot of time back there, and there isn't going to be. Pretend you're playing the VT defense.

You've got to get it out of there fast.

Seriously. On a day like today where the playoff path opened up like a Christmas present, we needed to come out and blow their doors off....

That game is why I'm still coherent right now.

Things that have CONTINUALLY plagued the Hokies (yes, even during the ENTIRE Beamer era:
-ball security (fumbles particularly)
-poor tackling fundamentals
-slow execution on offense
-poor preparation mentality
These are the things that still plague this team even while Fuente is here. It is BEYOND imperative that this team eradicate those to achieve the ultimate objective. I feel like the killer instinct has started to change for the better.

Now that's the HokieMacGruber26 I've come to know.

I agree wth you except for the comment on fumbling (at least this year.)

Sorry, but that fumble would happen to anyone. It was a helmet directly to the ball and if the arm was in the way it would be an injury. Super unlucky (par for the course for Miami) that it was a bounce right into a defender's arms. Can't disagree on the rest.

My bourbon is gone and we've got a full half to play yet. Tomorrow is gonna hurt.

Sounds like today is hurting. Gotta have a reserve.

Actually it is. I've never woken up hungover at 7 PM before. And I left my reserve in Virginia. Looks like apple brandy for the second half.

Just got into my bourbon!

Savoy has cost us points twice. He was bound to make some mistakes, but this is the worst possible game for this to happen. Game is still very winnable but something has to change.

The helmet on the ball thing is just one of those things. Yes, it's preventable, but it's also one of those things that is relatively random and challenging.

The hallmark of this O system is misdirection. We need to see more of that. Miami is over confident and cocky, use that pursuit against them.

We put the K in Kwality

I like that. Yes, let's do more of that.

This is my biggest hope. A lot of these runs we have been working are hopefully going to open up some big plays in the 2nd half.

I think it's time to have a little fun, y'all.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

You mean like doing the wave.

Yuck

Where's the beef?

Don't know what to say, but we keep finding ourselves in these situations where we start slow. I think this team has been vastly overachieving so far this year. The abundance of inexperience on O may contribute, but I don't think early playcalling does us any favors. Like Jackson a lot, think he's solid, but I honestly think he's the QB we need now, not in the future. Lack of serious running threat at QB limits this offense, and it's evident AJ Bush isn't the solution. We have 1.5 reliable receivers currently. Let's play D and hope we can pull this one out.

If we can just score 12 more points than they do in the second half, we have a chance.

Guys for real? Y'all are intelligent fans (thank you French). Everyone here knows our offense is set up for the second half based on misdirection etc. we're down ELEVEN with a whole half to go. Everyone on here knows damn good and well Bud will make adjustments. Yes I'm upset too bc it should be 14-10 or 14-6 and I loathe Miami as much as anyone, but let's not jump off a cliff YET. We're fine. CornFu are not idiots they will make adjustments as well; with as much as we ran in the first half I hope like hell that they saw something I didn't bc there can't be any other explanation for the lack of passing we saw. We good. 1-0

Call me GMHokie, let's do this!

I knew our lack of offensive aggressiveness would get us at some point. Outside of Cam we have no offensive identity. Miami taste blood now. If we don't score within our first two drives it may be over. Man I wish we still have Evans.... He made folks play better. Who's our leader on O? Come on fellas fight!!!!!!!!!

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

YES!!! Keep fighting D!!!!!

Sneak!!!!

Way to redeem yourself Savoy

I propose we call him Reginald Floyd

I second this motion. All in favor?

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

My two-yr old began saying "dilly dilly" after seeing this commercial. Totally out of context.

Where's the beef?

Motion passes.

Thank goodness. Now go play defense.

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

That's what I'm talking about

SLC

That's how we play!
LET'S GO!!!

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

Yes!!!!!! Finally!!!! Way to fight fellas!

Hi Five everyone

SLC

"I got you, fam." - Bud to Fuente, probably

About friggin time!

Should've let Reggie run that last p,ay.

We put the K in Kwality

Miami is gonna go back to the running game again. Let's see if the defense steps up and tackles.

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

We've got a pulse...

I hope we are in Rosiers head and he does not feel comfortable throwing and we take away the run game from them. Let's go Hokies, Positive vibes this half!!!

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

I had the utmost confidence that's exactly how the second half was going to start.

Back in the game here!

Best start we could be hoped for. Now let's fucking lock in and show them we ain't kiddin.

Warning- Filter lost.

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

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

I'll say it again -- Surprise on D this year is FLOYD -- yeah he's had some miffs, esp in the passing game, but man...he's been money a whole lot.

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

I'm tempted to recreate the chain and send it home so that they can put it in the lunchpail.

Come on D. Hold on. Give it back to the O again!

The sky is falling!!! /s

I hope we light Rosiers ass up on this drive

We need to get our hands up if they are going to throw quick. That's what made that INT.

"This is me with cable. And this is me in the second half." - Justin Fuente, probably

This same team rushed for 62 yards against unc...

We put the K in Kwality

so confusing

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

They need 5 yards. We play 10 off the WR?

We put the K in Kwality

Need to step up the run D. We're better than this.

Spoilers follow!

Turn over chain!

We put the K in Kwality

That's a lucky bounce right there boys

STRO!

News flash! Rosier aint that good!!!

Where's the beef?

GIVE US THE IMAGINARY CHAIN AGAIN!

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

Who was it on here that called 3 INTs tonight? Legs for you.

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

Lots of time left!

Hoooooly shit our D finally made it from the airport.

Stroman!!!!!!!

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

Stro wants that fake air chain too!

If you get enough interceptions, there's no time for that nonsense.

Go across the field and steal that POS from their sideline!

Love hearing the lets go hokies over the canes fans

Where's the beef?

LET'S DO THIS!!

DBUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

SLC

Rozier came in with 4 picks on the season, now has 3 in one night. Epic.

ATTENTION: Whatever you are wearing don't change, however you are sitting don't move, whatever you are drinking, stick to it.

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

I haven't changed anything since the first half... except I've stopped drinking (for like 10 minutes...) I may not start back up now....

Warning- Filter lost.

But my glass is almost empty. I guess I will stick to Buffalo Trace and save the Blantons for when we win.

I switched beers at half, but have enough for second half
