Let's go!!!

HOKIES!!

I'm Photographing a wedding in Roanoke today, I hope to look at my phone by the ceremony and see a blowout and QP has his first college TD.

Edit: fuck! Am I glad this wedding was super busy and I didn't get to see the score till it was over. So yea....I'm just gonna faze that out and make sure I never see highlights or read anything about this.

Also I'll be back in a few days when leveled heads prevail again.

Question. Are we technically 3-0 after they forfeited the game?

No.

Outside its night time, but inside its LeDay

I was thinking the same thing... he shakes bc he's so excited!... freakin. awesome.

I'm ready with my iPad, HDMI cable, and my grandmother's cable account login!

I'll save everybody the bandwidth, but you're getting shit done and that's commendable.

How are you using a cable login to stream?

Got my XBox One, my ESPN app, and my FIL's login

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Pretty sure ESPN is not covering this one.

The game is absolutely NOT on ESPN, either on the TV or their streaming service.

As far as I know, there's no way to stream our game unless you have a streaming TV service like Sling or Fubo or YouTube TV or Hulu TV.

Edit: apparently if you have a cable login that includes the channel you can watch it here: http://www.cbssports.com/cbs-sports-network/

This link shows the Toledo-Nevada game for me.

It appears that Comcast carries the channel, but subscribers don't have on line access.

I'll be on the road for most of the day. Gonna try the tunein app for the first time. Hopefully it doesn't suck down too much data

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

If you have Dish Network, you'll probably have access to CBSSN to see the game. Heck, here in PA, I have a harder time getting Tech games on the ACC Network. At least CBSSN is a national network.

If we don't have cbssn, what are our other options? Any recommendations, folks? I've got fios up here in Nova.

I'm doing a free trial of fuboTV

I'm planning a free trial of Hulu TV

Free trial of YoutubeTV.

I hate that YouTube TV isn't available in my zip code. Doesn't make sense why they don't at least let me subscribe to the national channels, even if they haven't made any deals with the local stations yet.

Burned my hulu trial last year, youtubetv it is...thanks for the suggestion.

dang it! feed delayed until 4:10!!!, probably crossing this one of my list of cord-cutting options...

Use the links below. Currently online no subscription at CBSSN website

Channel 1216 for anyone with Cox in the 757.

I've found CBS SPORTS HQ. Is that the same as cbssn?

I don't think so, but then again I can't figure out CBS' streaming options for sports. I've always assumed the options are "none".

I believe a Hulu subscription will get you in.

Hulu TV, not the base Hulu subscription.

I'll be at the game and will take some pictures

We put the K in Kwality

Cbssports is apart of my cable package here. Guess I'm lucky.

Are you able to view the game on line? Xfinity doesn't show up on the provider list when I try to log in at CSB Sports web page.

We put the K in Kwality

Yeah I guess it's not part of my package ☹️

You said "package"...

We put the K in Kwality

I don't have much in my package...*sob*

So glad to watch the Hokies again! My wish list, in order:

1) Win
2) No Injuries
3) All the right practice to be truly ready for Duke, ND, rest of ACC play
4) 1st qtr= 1st string, 2nd qtr = 2nd str...... 4th qtr = QP4!!!
5) FSU to win and look like a good football team

Go Hokies!!!!

5) FSU to win and look like a good football team

Gettin' greedy!

Where's the beef?

I guess I'll get a stream from Reddit...

I'm in an airplane on the way to Qatar atm. Wifi on the plane but it's a bit dodgy. Hope to at least follow game tracker. I'll be landing around halftime, I think

I've got my free trial of YouTubeTV ready since I wasn't able to make the trip down today to Norfolk from Newport News

So the Nevada Toledo game still has over 11 minutes left, so will they delay kickoff or just miss part of the game on TV?

Wondering the same, coming down to crunch time here

Yeah...any alternate ways to watch?

I just signed up for 7 day free trial of YouTubeTV (YTTV) (committing to a cancellable $40/month after that). YTTV is saying the game starts at 3:50(!). Whiskey Tango.....anyone else seeing this?

Maybe this is being caused by the all-important Nevada-Toledo game. Grrr...some way to treat the #13 team in the country. I could see this if we were unranked but CMON MAN.

Toledo better hope and pray they're right

Fuck Toledo. Nobody cares about Toledo PAAAAAAWWWWWLLLLLLL

HOKIES

What the fuck is this shit

I feel like this happened a couple of times last season when we were on CBS Sports Network. They schedule their double-headers too close together or something.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

the stream's coming up blank for me is anyone else having the same issue?

EDIT: Had to disable ad blocker to get it to work

Using Chrome? Switching to MS Explorer worked for me.

They're saying you can watch in the CBS sports website

I don't even know what I see in the mirror anymore

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Another reason why ACC fans aren't as into football. You have to work way too hard to fucking watch. FUCK SWOFFORD and his BS delay of the ACC Network

This isn't an ACC problem. We're the visiting team. This is on ODU's conference TV contract.

Yeah but still. It's never a bad time for a "FUCK SWOFFORD"

What pisses me off most is the CBS Sports channel is still playing commercials like they aren't 30 mins behind schedule...

I have video but no audio.....probably a blessing if I had to guess on the talent of the broadcast team

That's better than I got. I can't even watch it yet

Stupid Toledo. I'm trying to play the game on the link but it's not working. :(

And the VT fanbase crashes the feed on CBSSN......

Yep. We killed it.

Yep, lol. Saw the first couple plays before it crashed. Seriously, they're going to keep a game on with two unranked teams and a two, likely three possession game?

I can hardly watch the steam it's so choppy... I'm mad

the feed sucks

Is it football season yet?

these announcers take the cake for being the worst already

Did we knock out their QB already?

This Nevada - Toledo game might be the most garbage game I've ever seen in my life.

The only downside of taht quick td is our defense is going right back out

True, TOP is the key to victory after all.

If we go up big, those guys are only playing one half

WOOOOO LETS GOOO!!!

HOKIES

Did Peoples get faster over the offseason or is ODU just that slow? You could see the exact moment Peoples decided to turn the extra gear on.

He isn't suffering from that ankle injury any more. He wasn't the fastest guy on the team but he does have speed.

His HS numbers suggest he was a pretty good running and I would assume pretty fast. I think it was a matter of decisiveness and hitting the hole on time to not run into a crowd of defenders. We also can't discount the improved performance of the O-Line.

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

Boy ODU really must be that bad when Steven Peoples looks like the fastest player on their field.

Our depth chart says "Willis -OR- Hooker"- I sense this being more of a Hooker type of game.

There is so much O&M in those stands, it's beautiful

Wow, either our D is asleep or ODU is way better than FSU (or both)

Farley actually played that ball really well, great catch by the receiver, but overall we are getting no pressure on the QB.

http://www.cbssports.com/cbs-sports-network/ switched over to the VT game and has been more reliable for me, but the stream quality is lower.

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

Is the defense going to play or are they gonna embarrass themselves

That was unimpressive DB play by our freshmen

DBU getting burned left and right

What happens when we play man

Recruit Prosim

Awesome D!

Not watching but how bouts some pressure. Get em straight Bud..

Year 3 is coming up!

Defense needs to wake up. This isn't FSU. You can't mess around. It's ODU!

Just how bad is FSU?

That means plenty of live reps for our young DBs. I am Ok with this as long as we dont continue to get beat.

The old ECU strategy. They were pretty successful with that in a few games against us. Hopefully ODU isn't.

Where's the beef?

Lol, c'mon man

I think our secondary wasn't challenged at all against FSU. Pretty bad drive against a QB that can actually throw. Hopefully that shakes off some cobwebs and the defense starts stepping up.

I want to reiterate, that was really good coverage by Farley, the receiver made a great catch with Farley's hand on the ball.

That said, overall, that was an AWFUL possession by the defense.

how can i watch this stupid game on my xbox??

"I thought the kid right there you're talking to right there played his nuts off."

No pressure on the QB, letting him throw fade routes into single coverage all day...need to make some adjustments

According to the announcers, this game is now on upset alert because ODU scored a td..

No more JJ runs. Unnecessary risk of injury

There is Ximines......damn it French why are you right

Really questioning how prepared our guys are especially given an extra week.

It's early. They'll wake-up and realize that they will have to actually play. This is ODU's Super Bowl. They aren't going to just roll-over and let VT win without a fight.

Good grief...cannot block a 3-man Rush from ODU?? Its time to wake the hell up.

These guys are sleep walking in this first half. They had better wake up but I am not surprised given how young we are.

I'm not really surprised tbh, having an unexpected by week can completely throw off any rhythm we were building.

It'll be okay, I also have a suspicion that if any other quarterback gets to play today it'll be Quincy

It's just the 1st quarter calm down everyone

Can we just stop throwing the ball until we have a comfy lead?

No, we'll get sacked with a 3 man rush.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

There's pretty big buzz around having us down in the 757

Get used to it, we'll be back here several times.... oh and at MTSU... oh and at Liberty....

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Josh Jackson just flat out sucks. Absolutely no pocket presence and slow as hell

I don't know why people keep telling themselves he is going to "turn a corner" he doesn't have the physical tools to do so.

I've been saying that Jackson is like a Sean Glennon with a little more pocket presence. You can scratch the pocket presence part now.

Jesus JJ sucks ass

JJ is shook and had Chris wide open up the sideline.... takes one look and takes a sack

JJ's play is definitely not inspiring confidence...this looks like late-2017 JJ again.

Dunno if that was an RPO or he simply decided to tuck, but that was a poor decision.

Wow wake up call.

WTF was that. Got to make a decision and stop tiptoeing.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

JJ is awful in the pocket.

2nd year and JJ still can't get to a 2nd level read if his first option is covered

"ODU going ODB"

OK, I'll give him that one. That's funny.

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

That's ridiculous. Get JJ out now

Jackson appears to give up on the play almost immediately. What is frustrating is that he thinks he can run to get out of the situation.

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

Yikes. Here's to Justin&Bud&Co. saying some dirty words to them in between quarters.

“Stats are for losers.” -Mel Kiper Jr.

Let JJ continue to brag and laugh about that dad bod...

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

.. C'mon and do the same thing defense.

I'm sure someone else has already said this, don't worry I'll drink for it, but how bad are these fucking announcers. I never want to play on CBSSN again. We got a worse crew than Toledo-Nevada.

Vols Fans are more delusional than LOLUVA

I actually really love them lol

Besides calling nijman one of the best pass rushers.

Agree to disagree I suppose. Play by play guy just yells everything he says and the color guy doesn't know anyone's name and stumbles over everything he says.

Vols Fans are more delusional than LOLUVA

Hokie in Tennessee

I've resorted to muting them they are so bad.

I still for the life of me don't understand why we continue to play Josh Jackson. Even at his best it's hard for me to believe he's the best option we have at quarterback.

Rational me says it is still early, probably coming off a sleepy week, and yadda yadda.

Irrational me say this is the same shit we see every week. JJ is a mediocre game manager and will never be a game maker/breaker.

ACC really sucks this year.

It really does. This is a really down year for the conference. If Clemson doesn't get the CFP spot, the ACC are the ones left out this year.

Pretty sure that was a called QB sneak, which makes it a horrible play call..

Whys is CBS in Richmond streaming the Alabama game? I can't stream the game except from a shady ad riddled website

CBS Network has an SEC contract. Not sure what you were expecting, but they can't show a game with an ACC team, unless there's an SEC team as the home team.

Weird, cbs is streaming the Alabama game here in Nova too

Jokes aside, it's on cbssn

I've tried to pull it up there but they don't have a Xfinity/comcast sign in option

A Hokie living in Tennessee.

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

I'm not happy about the start either but we all need to calm down. There's still 3 quarters of football left to play. We had an unexpected bye week and a lot of our players are playing at "home" in front of family and friends. We will be fine. JJ will be fine.

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

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

Well, this place got toxic pretty quick.

We are getting worked by a barely D1 team and a backup QB...

Hokie Football.

Same as it ever was.

Haha of course it did. We are the 13th ranked team in the country playing OLD DOMINION on the road and look awful.

Carter Blackburn is a complete, total, and utter asshat. He's calling this game like its 35-0 ODU.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

There is a ton of gray area between being okay with it and acting like the season is over, the defense sucks, and the QB should be benched. It isn't an either/or situation.

You were saying?

These announcers want ODU to win so much.

A Hokie living in Tennessee.

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

It is ridiculous how much these announcers are ODU homers. I am tempted to turn on the radio broadcast and mute the TV.

Yea it's really unbearable. I want our own homecooking

Recruit Prosim

If you aren't invested in either team you always want to see the underdog win. Especially when it's a high ranked team

"I'll put a quote here to distract you from my inane comment."-Me

Yes, but that's not your job as an Announcer. Your job is to be provide an unbiased call/analysis of the game. Its not about what you want to see.

If you want to unabashedly gush over the team of your choice, go fill out an Application to be on their Radio Team.

Yeah, I can't remember the last time that this happened. Announcers always are on the side of 1) the favorite, until 2) the non-favorite outplays the favorite (esp a 4 TD underdog).

That never happens if you watch most other top 25 teams. Bama, Clemson, Ohio state, Michigan. None of them get that treatment

So as the scores were going across the bottom, my five-year-old says "look, there's North Carolina. They're called U N Cheat."

I have never been in the bench JJ camp. And I'm not saying we should. I believe Fu and Corny know this team better than anybody else. BUT a showing like this so far makes you wonder. I still think if he's out there he's the best option but this game has to get better.

I'm not saying the seasons dead now I'm not in that camp either. Just makes you wonder what a more mobile guy would do. JJ isn't getting through any reads.

If josh Jackson is legitimately our best option at QB then our offense is going to continue to be boring/limited. Kid just doesn't have the athleticism for RPO's and other stuff we want to do. Please Fuente, stop being stubborn and try another QB

He is a pocket passer being shoehorned into an offense that requires mobility and he doesn't even have the best arm on the bench.

The ONLY reason he is laying is because he was already the starter. A fair, clean slate competition there is zero chance this is the best of the 4 options

Yeah I saw him look slow as hell & then throw a wide open TD. I get it we scored, but we should be moving the ball much better than we are. Scoring doesn't take away from the fact that JJ hasn't played well

That should have been going on ALL GAME, not just isolated occurrences

Recruit Prosim

I don't like the "get rid of JJ" talk either because we should trust the coaches to be smart enough to play the best man.

BUT reality is that JJ at QB means we will be a "dont beat ourselves offense" rather than an "go win/dominate this game offense". With how young our team is this year, him not being a better athlete or a better qb will lose us some games this year. Heck, it might lose us the game today.

To me, it is INCREDIBLY frustrating that he looks like he hasn't made any gains physically. Especially seeing the before/after photos of a lot of the team this year. That makes me think that he doesnt take the offseason conditioning/lifting program as serious as he probably should.

On the INT JJ didn't even try to step into the throw. Tried to throw it like an end zone fade. With his arm strength? Nah

No don't worry he didn't show any arm strength last year. He'll show huge improvement into his 3rd season in the program....because.

The QB and secondary should be ashamed of themselves with this effort so far. They're playing like shit.

LaRussa has had a clean pocket for most of this game. Why can't we get any pressure?

That last TD is on Fuente. He needs to let it go to the half

Did he really think our offense would've gone 70 yards and scored with a minute left...

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

How could you possibly blame Fuente? The Jackson pick was with 3:50 left. We're playing ODU sorry we actually tried to extend our 1 TD lead

There was one minute thirty seconds left when he called the first timeout

We had a seven point lead and get the ball to start the second half.

Our DBs have been getting picked apart. If ODU wants to run it into a brick wall and go to half let them

We needed to regroup regardless. The odds of it being tied were greater then us having a 14 pt lead at half.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Probably preaching to the choir here -- I don't care if the rest of the QBs on the roster can't play better than JJ, but he needs to at least show some better body language on the sideline. This team needs energy, or this 757 trip is a waste.

Nick Saban didn't give a shit about seniority when he put Tua in after Jalen had gone, essentially, 200-0 as Alabama's starter. We aren't moving the ball on offense at all. Make a change for christ's sake.

He definitely should have been starting the whole time.

Seriously though, what does it take for Jackson to take a seat? Our defense gave him the ball like 4 times inside FSU territory to put the game away and he never could. He was awful the entire second half last year. This game has been pathetic. It's all on our defense when he starts.

JJ is a decent qb but he just doesn't fit our system

I feed off of nightmares

Imma take a shot at semi-objective look at the first half after I've vented my hot takes earlier.

    Defense
  • Defense has been burned many times
  • Very vanilla playcalling on defense could be a factor to this
  • Overlooked an offense that still has D1 caliber athletes
  • Missed tackles
  • Lack of urgency/aggression
    Offense
  • Very limited playcalls
  • I think the balance of runs up the middle v. throws is quite skewed to runs up the middle
  • Very vanilla offense. Very vanilla...
  • HOT TAKE ALERT: JJ hasn't looked hot in his few throws, lacked pocket presence, and overall urgency

JJ's one TD was an easy read/wide open, he hasn't really made any tight throws to my knowledge. Again, I think this is a factor of vanilla playcalls, but his pocket presence definitely leaves something desired. Hopefully this wasn't too arm chair QBy!

Also, probably didn't prepare for an accurate passer in a backup QB.

Fuente is pissed, basically said we got beat in all three phases of the game and the team needs to step up and respond.

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

Watching the highlights of all the games today I noticed one thing, when the pocket collapses the QBs scramble to buy some time and/or run for a first down. I don't know a lot about football, why doesn't our offense do that? Is it just a different scheme?

Is JJ wearing a glove on his left hand now? Was he wearing it earlier?

Glad we are running Jackson, they aren't accounting for him properly and he's burning them right now.

ODU no longer respecting the pass

Is Mcclease injured? I don't think i've seen him at all

Is Wheatley out today? Haven't seen him

Pretty sure he was part of that injured group that did not travel.

We basically ran that whole drive. We really couldn't have had Hooker out there to do that? Feel like he would've broken a couple of those runs for TD

I don't get it either. Jackson is not adding anything in the passing game, so why not put in the better running QB.

Where's the beef?

I don't know who pissed off Steven Peoples, but thank you!

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

STEVEN PEOPLES IS A FUCKING MAN!!!

At least People's wants the W.

Keep feeding peoples, settle down the defense and we should cruise to a win here. That said, the chinks in the armor are known, and I remain unconvinced with our offense. I'm not burning the house down, but unconvinced.

Hopefully the defense has made some adjustments

Really? Bested on special teams over a non-fielded punt? These guys are fucking horrible.

Hard to put into words how annoying the play-by-play announcer is

has anybody else noticed that the ref with the H on their shirt is a woman. not that there's anything wrong with that.

Go Hokies

There's at least 5 female refs, which is nice to see. This is the first game I've watched that has had one.

There's actually two of them I think...or the ref that stands back between the safeties has a case of the man boobs.

Also, I love Hazelton, but we should try someone else on PR. He keeps fielding ones he should fair catch, and letting ones go that he should field.

The defense got the stop. Now it is time for the offense to take the game over.

Unfortunately that did not happen on that set of downs

Alright time for play action, and a big TD to give ourselves some breathing room

Everybody just needs to calm down. It's the orange jerseys. As long as that clown suit that is decidedly lacking in maroon doesn't make another appearance, we're still set to make the playoffs. It's all good.

That roll on the punt was just unfortunate. Good set of down by the defense. I'm actually not as upset with the defense as most on here. We were spotty in pass coverage, but this should probably be a game where we are scoring much more than we are. Nobody would care how the defense played if we had 31 or 35 at the half.

Based on the trending through the second half of the season last year, the stalls against FSU, and then today, it is does not seem plausible that neither Willis, nor Hooker Hooker, nor QP2 could do better than what we're watching today.

Dalton Keene couldn't have been more open and JJ...

didn't see him at all..

C/ATT YDS AVG TD INT
Josh Jackson 7/13 79 6.1 1 1

Not great Bob. I know, I know, he catches a lot of shit. But this is an ODU team that get torched by Liberty. JJ should be able to do a little better.

He's even fucking looking at him!

Where's the beef?

This really says a lot about decision making which is supposed to be his thing?

I think we see a change next drive

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Especially if ODU ties it up

Where's the beef?

More missed tackles... yuck

Where's the beef?

DL getting no pressure

This is garbage. What the hell are they doing?

I can tell ya what they aren't doing. Playing football!

Where's the beef?

I know our defense sucks today, but there are so many missed holding calls.

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

Yeah scratch what I said earlier, I am now upset with the defense.

Where is the D? WTF

JP

If Jackson comes out for the next series we don't care

This is sucking

Year 3 is coming up!

I can accept the defense having struggles, we expected them too. We were literally told all offseason that JJ was the second coming of Jesus Christ, so there is no excuse for us only scoring 21 points against ODU

you have to be kidding me, why does this happen every year???????????

JMU!

Year 3 is coming up!

I'm officially in panic mode.

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

Time to change my VT shirt! Clearly I wore the bad luck one for this game. Everything will turn around once I change and move to another spot on the couch.

Worst game since Wake Forest 0-0

Ain't ready to play

Year 3 is coming up!

So this defense is as bad as we were afraid of

This is such a terrible performance I just have to laugh at this point.

This D is missing Dealbo big time. Ladler looks lost at FS and Hunter looks lost at Whip

I seriously can't believe this is happening.

Legitimately nervous now

Fsu clowned us

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

Lack of discipline on defense is ridiculous. Georgia Tech might run for 800 yards.

I can't stand these announcers

They suck...almost as much as our D right now....

JP

2 weeks to prep and practice. Did they practice at all?

Mom and dad are freaking out, wife's yelling, I'm just laughing. Being a VT fan takes an absolute toll on the human spirit.

if you're from DC you should be even more immune to this shit

Seriously. WTF!

We put the K in Kwality

No surprise after watching this game why Ladler was starting in front of Hunter.

Temple in '98....I was at that game. We need to step it up now!

JP

Best comment from earlier in the thread

So glad to watch the Hokies again! My wish list, in order:

1) Win
2) No Injuries
3) All the right practice to be truly ready for Duke, ND, rest of ACC play
4) 1st qtr= 1st string, 2nd qtr = 2nd str...... 4th qtr = QP4!!!
5) FSU to win and look like a good football team

Lol they are talking about the recruiting implications of this game. Just shoot me in the head.

Virginia Tech ain't played nobody PAAAWWWWLLLLLL - the damn truth

Where's the beef?

We are worse than Liberty! And U.VA did better than us today against a better team...

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

The defense cannot win us every game. At some point the offense has to win us one, and that point is right now. JJ doesn't habe the capacity to win a game though

Did we only dress 22 for this game? Sure looks like it. I mean if you're not getting job done. Put someone else in!

We put the K in Kwality

There was a walk on playing CB this last drive. Foster is trying to see what will work.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

MAybe try 2 deep

Looks like defense has rotated quite a bit actually.
