GIFTORY: Frame-by-Frame Highlight Reel of No. 12 Virginia Tech's 62-17 Blowout of William & Mary

The Hokies dominated the Tribe.

The House always wins.

Perfect form on the suplex.

SCRUM.

Big squeeze.

Air guitar.

🥞

Punter made a hell of a play. Also, poor punter.

Hooker, nice.

For the record - and I will die upon this hill every time an announcer brings it up - that's a maul, not a scrum.

in that case, I'm pissed Kumah wasn't involved. If there's mauling going on, it should be done by the Bear.

I yell this at the TV EVERY TIME they call it a scrum!

(I played club rugby for VT many moons ago)

I only pay for TV service during college football season.

Had to check your bio to see if we played together. I don't think the women had a club team back in the late 80's, and you would have been too young to be on it, so I'm going to say we did not.

But your most memorable moment is definitely worth the read, and a leg.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Back down to 7!! That ought to teach you!

I was class of 2008 as well and we had a fraternity brother on the men's team. The night the ladies rugby team came to party at the house lives in infamy among my class. Good times.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

To W&M punter: Gutsiest move I ever saw, Mav (someone gif me, i'm getting ready to drive to work)

@CraigThompsonVT

Their punter was great. He had great hangtime and distance.

"Dick to Hyman? DICK TO HYMAN!" - Guy in Lane Stadium crowd when Richard Johnson hit Josh Hyman on reverse pass in 2004.

Live, I thought the TD by Jackson was helped by pretty much everyone. Now I see that it was essentially Chung vs 5-6 W&M guys with a little help from Keene.

Chung absolutely deserves a game ball for that.

And this is why you work the sled during the off-season.

I think I saw where his dad made the trip down for the game since the Eagles had the Thursday opener.

Sure enough...

Danny Coale Caught That Ball!!!

Who is Dad and Who is Son? 😳
Pops looks Good!
Give that man some pads!

SCHokie

I think his eligibility might have run out...

You need to keep reading downthread. His eligibility may be done, but Kevin Chung's sure hasn't.

No no no. Kevin Chung is his other son. Eugene's eligibility ran out ages ago.

I'm looking forward to the next 4-6 years of Kyle Chung's career at VT.

Heard he is coming back as Kevin Chung and will start at left guard for Quincy Patterson in 2020

How do you pronounce that name, I wonder.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I like how Hazelton is standing around watching then gets pancaked by Pfaff to push Jackson in

1-0 every week

Came here to comment on that. He got blown up.

Push or be pushed. Simple as that. Sandbagging sonuva....

Thanks for pointing that out. I can't stop laughing.

Hazelton standing around was a common theme that needs to be addressed.

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

(More on that from French tomorrow.)

I love how the pile got into the endzone and forgot to bring Jackson along. Heads up move by Jackson to extend his arm as he went down

Really solid move. I don't know how he was able to know just where the line was, but he did, and got the ball over it.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I'm guessing that he just felt the maul being pushed away from the EZ and tried to ensure that it was over, if they were close.

You mean the scrum, right? ;^)

Trying to avoid hairbrush girl.

I like the heads up. But in blowout win against William and Mary, I don't want our starting QB's extended arm anywhere near a 10 man pile

The Dude Abides

Keene lost outside leverage on the pile/scrum/maul and allowed it to work back outside. Could blame it Hazelton failing to get out of the way and working back to the wrong side.

Edit: second look shows Peoples completely overran the play when he was next outside.

Guess that's what happens when they make you run like a WR.

TFW you almost get a sack on a corner blitz, but instead bite on the fake hand off and end up chasing the QB 69 yards for a TD.

and the QB separates from you while at full speed.

Good thing we weren't playing Ole Miss, I hear they are really good at chasing Hooker.

Awesome as always, although I'm a little surprised that the excessively long shot of Fuente randomly chewing gum at 2:28 in the 3rd didn't make the cut. It had no bearing on the game but more of an indication that he was in "I came to kick arse and chew bubblegum, and I'm almost out of kicking arse" mode.

didn't Hazleton have a pretty impressive sideline catch at one point? Our stream was spotty, so I might have been looking at another game, but I seem to remember him making a great play on a really long gain.

Oh, and I thought Keene had more of a Dave Grohl thing going, but Rambo works.

I think Rambo is a nickname of his.

He did have a nice catch, and the throw from Willis was even nicer.

On "The House Always Wins," you can almost see the disappointment on Trevon Hill's face as he blows up the play one second too late.

"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

There were two TD's that should be been credited to the offensive line more than the ball carrier. It was wonderful when the scrum formed and carried the ball carrier into the endzone.

But totally agree :)

House's sack would have been a personal foul in NFL.

Watching the NFL is unbearable compared to college football

What about that tackle is flag worthy? He doesn't launch, doesn't lead with his helmet, doesn't hit the QB in the head or in the side of the leg.

He drives/lands his weight directly on top of the QB, which the NFL has been overly sensitive about this season.

lift-and-slam of the QB and lands with his full weight on him.

Did anyone else catch that awkward camera shot between William & Mary after the Hooker TD? It looks like William was staring at Hooker a bit too long...

Man, Hendon Hooker looked so much like Cam Newton on that run...
