Its time to stop the Lets Go Hokies chant here. All its gotten is a bunch of poor showings. How about Kick Ass Hokies. We need that kind of mentality

The lack of comments speaks volumes. But it's early.

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

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

Interested to see how many fans (or lack there of) show up today. If we lose this game next week could be ugly

That team sure did suck last night. They just plain sucked! I've seen teams suck before, but they were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked.

This is latest I've ever left town to head to Blacksburg.... Hope the team can give me my enthusiasm back today. But as always, go Hokies!

A Hokie living in Tennessee.

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

This game is winnable. We're due (although I've been saying that for weeks). Comon Hokies!

I'll watch the game. Not sure I'll last to the end if its another horrid shpwing by the Hokies. Hoping for a better showing but expecting disaster.

Just....just win. Please.

We have to go 1-0 eventually... right?

Heard from my student cousin that Kumah and Grimsley are out. Anyone heard anything?

Also, currently tailgating in chicken hill lot. Not a horrible tunrout but definitely less people than BC.

Kumah out, Grimsley wait and see. Expect to see a lot of Tre Turner.

Been listening to Rob Zombie all morning, drinking my out of my Starbucks holiday cup, going full peak millennial in my Stranger Things t-shirt watching highlights of the 2011 Miami Tech game.

Things I would like to see, regardless of outcome.

  • On offense do what works. If that means dropping bombs with your big receivers, then do it. Don't take the foot off the gas
  • On defense don't worry about going 1-0. The defense is so young they need to not focus on winning a game but winning a down. It's kind of like the question, "How do you eat an elephant?". One bite at a time.
  • On special teams we need a little more than what we have seen recently.

GO HOKIES!

We aren't the worst (in a single defensive category)

Looks like we've inspired greatness! /s

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

oof

It felt like we gave up 5 plays of 70+ against Pitt alone.

I so want us to keep our bowl streak alive [... and my Dad used to say, "... and people in Hell want ice water."] If our streak ends, an SEC team (Georgia) will have the longest recognized active streak. The SEC already brags too much.
Come on Hokies get fired up!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Got an oddly good feeling about this game, though it's probably just self-reflected. Let's play a good second half for the first time since Duke, and show some pride on defense. Some toughness, too.

MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

I felt that way last week πŸ˜•

I still feel like Jessie Spano addicted to caffeine pills.

This continues to be my gameday thread post until we return to form

Let's Go

HOKIES

Y'all is spelled wrong

Keep calm, Gobble on

This place is a god damned ghost town. wtf.

Let's Go

HOKIES

Going to watch the whole game no matter what. Go Hokies and please just show some fight.

SLC

School is out of session right and we aren't exactly lighting up the win column. Wish I lived near their and was able to attend games. Appreciate the fact that you can even attend.

SLC

Blanket statement or a response to my ghost town comment? Because I was talking about TKP, lol. ...I've never been to see the Hokies play at home :/

Thought you were at the game.

SLC

Same boat as myself. Lifelong fan born and raised in Virginia but never was able to attend a game and then I moved to California but just visited in October and now my wife wants to move there.

SLC

Well that's something I wasn't expecting.

Definitely less gameday traffic today, but the Lion's Club lot is pretty full, so hopefully a decent for today's game.

Pitt has 3 minutes left in their game before they officially clinch the Coastal

Thank God it won't be Uva . I can find solace in that.

Just unleash the dragon all day long!

All the plays to Tre Turner. That kid is what the offense needs. What a great grab from NC.

..hate that I'm sitting here missing this.

Great pass but I have to say Tre's going to be a big time contributer over the next few years. I'm excited to watch him develop and grow.

Using /s is for cowards.

Looks like theres a good crowd there on TV

DON'T LOOK NOW BUT THE OFFENSE IS DOING THINGS.

Using /s is for cowards.

Yeah...but it's not 3rd quarter /s

We put the K in Kwality

You accidently put a "/s" on this comment.

Using /s is for cowards.

Umm guys? Anyone here?

Using /s is for cowards.

I think we got away with a lineman way downfield on that TD but fuck miami. Ill take it

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Hell of a start. Tre Turner is going to be a big time player for us

Go crowd noise!!

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Ahahaha what a great timeout by Richt

VB born, class of '14

Lol hopefully this means they're prepared to suck more than us.

Using /s is for cowards.

I usually just lurk but I'm gonna help pick up the slack for everyone who seemingly gave up already... Good solid opening drive, let's go hokies!

Everybody must be at their last stupidly scheduled fall wedding of the year. Yeah....ill go with that.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Lurkers are equal to the creep

I missed the TD because of puppies.......Need highlight ASAP.

TD Keene for 6 points

Farley just beat a block and lowered a shoulder. Glad to see the physical play

Floyd is weak on coverage. I'm sure they will try that again, and the receiver will catch it.

Floyd has never been good in coverage. Dodged a bullet there.

Wow......Floyd just got burned....thank you for the drop

Lucky that the miami bomb was dropped.

Lol Miami's offense trying to suck more than our defense.

Using /s is for cowards.

Probably going to catch hell for this, but did the deep ball and WR screen that Miami ran fail because of poor play calling or player execution? /s

facemask lol

Well they got us back on the missed holding, major facemask by Ricky.

This is looking like the Bud Foster run defense so far..

Painful to watch this. Our defense makes two good plays per series and then gives it up with s penalty or long pass.

3rd down defense, woof!

Where's the beef?

Farley is getting burned

Ladler just blew Perry up.......too bad it wasn't a stop

We've really been getting killed by penalties after 3rd down stops this year

I wasn't sure if it was just me or if this was a real thing....

I don't know the numbers or anything but it's sure felt like every time our defense gets some momentum going, there's some penalty on the 3rd down stop (granted that one was a holding and likely influenced us making the stop, but a lot of the time it seems like it's a personal foul after the play or something)

Man I'm used to having so much confidence in Bud Foster defenses on 3rd and longs. What a strange time.

Using /s is for cowards.

3rd and Kong is a good description

We put the K in Kwality

Nice play Hewitt! Good job making the tackle.

Hewitt looking good early. Way to read the play and make a physical tackle there

WHy is Bud up in the box, not down on the field?

He's apparently not feeling well (and kinda looked it when they showed him.)

There was a tweet linked earlier in the thread that mentions he's been feeling under the weather this week

Makes sense, but I hope he can convey his "energy" from up there! ;-)

Has uncontrollable bowel movements from what I understand

TMI

Unfortunately the defense this season will do that to you!

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

you could say he has a problem with the runs?

"under the weather". Supposed to be too sick.

We put the K in Kwality

Thanks

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Farley has no clue how to play cornerback.

He does OK when he has help, but not when on an island.

R-Fr

We put the K in Kwality

Why is Bud in the booth?

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Better cell reception.

See posts just above.

I can't read!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

They serve alcohol up there

Saved by the Miami D being off-sides.

all for not...

For one play, until we throw incomplete and punt...

We put the K in Kwality

There's that vaunted VT offense πŸ˜”

Where's the beef?

Is there a stat readily available that shows average distance to go on 3rd down? I feel like we are always 3rd and forever.....

Hopefully we can avoid a big play this series. 85 yds is a long way to go.

We've only given that up about 20 times this year.

We put the K in Kwality

Yeah, but not to a backup QB, oh wait. . .

Perfect example of our O: get 8 yards on Wheatley reverse, take him out (doesn't come back in). Get 4 yards on the next 4 plays (and 5-Yd penalty) and punt.

We put the K in Kwality

So apparently Perkins was carried off injured in the UVA-GT game. Although I'd never wish injury on anybody he could miss the game next week which is huge for us and our chances.

Backup just scored a 56-yd TD pass

We are getting lucky Miami is not accurate on their passes.

I mean isn't every team saying that about us too?

Our D held them

HORRIBLE PLAY CALLING! Come on 'man

Another 3rd and forever.......

Let's take everything that worked i the first drive and NEVER do it again.

New flash Corny: we CANNOT run!

We put the K in Kwality

Can we please stop running up the middle on 1st and 2nd. We haven't been able to do that for three years...

Why would we suddenly be able to do it against a strong front 7?

Great play Corny

VB born, class of '14

Read option ain't working Corn.

Using /s is for cowards.

Bad play calling, ugly punt

Offense starts well then stalls. Two consecutive three and outs

Run run pass punt again. Getting really tires of this.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

ughhh, in before Miami throws a bomb for a TD on this next play

How the hell are refs not calling holding on the outside!!

#ACC

We put the K in Kwality

Here we go, back to the old Cornelson formula.
1st down - zone-read for 1 yd
2nd down - handoff from shotgun for 0-1 yd
Obvious 3rd and long = 3 and out every drive

D CAME TO PLAY AND FIGHT LETS GO

HOKIES!!

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"Impervious Front" ........lmfao

Hokies Stoned there...

We put the K in Kwality

Stonewalled!

D is holding up their part of the deal... Somehow... This is a depleted group but they are playing HARD and with HEART!

If only our O could do SOMETHING!

We put the K in Kwality

Is Dax our best defender now? He honestly might be.

I like the fight so far.

SLC

Lader and Garbutt receiving attention there.

Who is there left to play DE after Garbutt?

Proctor, Debose?

whoa we stopped a 3rd an short?

Defense is playing with some fire so far. Keep it up and Miami may crack.

Only if our offense can do it's job.

As I stated. Easy pick.

If we score some points they will quit. But we probably won't get a chance to see it...

Yes!!!!

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Any one else really, really excited about KFC chicken and waffles?

We put the K in Kwality

I'm never excited about KFC chicken. #teamBojangles

Using /s is for cowards.

also #teambojangles but they do need to add waffles to really seal their superiority

Another stop by our D!
Please don't let this be a tease.
Stay strong Defense!
Catch fire Offense!
Special teams inspire!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I have bet my Mortgage on a Zone Read on 1st Down coming up.

Ouch

Or that : (

Willis what are you doing...

Way to go, Willis.... ugh

how the fuck was there no PI?

Welp. That's one way to completely deflate the team and punish the defense for playing great.

Now Corny will abandon the pass, run all three downs before punting.

We put the K in Kwality

A bullshit no call PI and then a pick!

uh oh

Thanks offense....

Where's the beef?

Well so much for the improved offense under Fuente.

Well that pretty much erases all of our momentum

I hate Miami so fucking much.

CRAP. the offense gave Miami 6..

That was a hell of a catch.

It also shouldn't have counted. He juggled it when he hit and his shoulder was out.

We put the K in Kwality

Ah the 2011 sugar bowl precedeant

Recruit Prosim

We should flat fucking tackle their WRs. If they aren't going to call blatant PI.

We put the K in Kwality

I have a bad feeling that Willis will react very poorly to that pick and start forcing passes too much from here on out

I hope you wrong, but you will probably not be.

I feel like he will go the other way and start staring down and holding onto the ball too long.

Offense has repeatedly given away games. Let's see if they can avoid a repeat

When you can't run the ball bad things happen.

I'd like to see someone football smart explain why we can't

Recruit Prosim

This season man, things finally start going well and we pull that.

Got to feel bad for the D there. That's pretty deflating.

Using /s is for cowards.

If this game starts going south I would like to see Hooker. Might as well start looking at the Future. QP can only play one more game so I would save that for next week.

SLC

I'm just here for the comments.

Heck of a catch on that touchdown. Willis needs to bounce back fast

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

We have come out flat on O mostly due to poor playcalling by Cornelsen after the first drive.....D has looked strong and there is still no reason to believe Miami O is about to start clicking.....Time for Corny to get his head out of his ass and earn his paycheck.....but we will probably run up the middle twice and then throw it short of the sticks on 3rd and long....

and cue the snowball effect. At some point these guys gotta find the mental fortitude to withstand the adversity and turn it around.

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

Let's see fortitude here. Nothing wrong with the D on that last drive

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Slow developing plays do not work against a fast defense. Need quick hitting and misdirection.

We put the K in Kwality

Just like our first drive that scored a TD

We might as well start every possession at 3rd down. We don't do anything on 1st and 2nd.

Finally the refs are watching the game.

Can't run on 2nd and 17

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Oh yeh?! Corn thinks so,

Looked clean to me.

Agreed. But in this day and age they're gonna look at everything. I bet we can slow that play down x100 and find a millisecond when his shoulder contacted Peoples head.

Where's the beef?

I thought it was mild targeting

Recruit Prosim

Whats the penalty for "mild" targeting? Hah. Targeting light!

Where's the beef?

Willis needs to look at the D, not just get rid of the ball; he's going to get good players hurt. It's frustrating to see him throw the ball to someone, only to set them up to get blasted.

That looked like it hurt

SLC

This offense is just painful to watch. The football equivalent of watching tires spin in mud for 3.5 hrs.

How was that's not an illegal hit to Peoples. Thought that was hitting a defenseless

We put the K in Kwality

Looked like shoulder to the head - but I doubt we get the call.

Launched. Lead with his head. Just happened to catch shoulder first.

The rule is meant to stop the intent of hurting another player. Miami guys was trying g to hurt him, not make tackle.

We put the K in Kwality

He definitely wasn't defenseless. That's a catch and lots of YAC without that hit.

Blame Willis for that awful pass he threw behind People's

Hey Corny: Keene is pretty good. Call more plays toward him...or fake that way. Novel concept, huh?

We put the K in Kwality

If Ladler was ejected, he should be ejected.

Ladler's hit was with the crown of the helmet.

Vanilla Vick!

Using /s is for cowards.

That was way more helmet to helmet than the one called on Ladler earlier this year. Thats the 2nd blown call by this crew against the hokies.

No, they blew the call against Ladler. They got this one right. Just because we got screwed once does not mean every call should follow suit. That was a football hit. The ones that pepper Hokie greats YouTube highlight videos.

Perfect throw. Gotta catch it when you get both hands on it

Recruit Prosim

Wheatly in run jet sweep. Sneaky sneaky!

Keep running it, or at least plays including fakes.

We put the K in Kwality

Miami out there looking to take heads off

I want knees.

Wrong Tech fam

...That's what Maryland does.

I don't give a damn what the fans think cause, quite frankly, I know what the fans want better than they do.

MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

I love Willis. Always tough

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Willis was tired of losing so he transferred here. Oops.

We put the K in Kwality

What's the same about both of those situations?

I'll take "Shitty Play Calling" for $1000.

I chuckled when I heard that.

Where's the beef?

I dont know what targeting is anymore if that was not targeting. Lifted up into peoples helmet with his helmet

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Peoples is the man. He should get the #25 almost every week.

Peoples is far from the best runningback we've had, but he has the heart of a fucking champion

Recruit Prosim

Turner is getting more touches today.

I wish the hell ESPN would stop doing all the side camera shots and stay on the game. Their production manager sucks.

It's the crew that gets the Tech games... it's the training ground for beginners... and it shows.

I don't mean to be hyperbolic but we should design our entire offense around Tre Turner.

I'm joking, but let's feature the kid moving forward, please.

It was designed around Hazelton, until everyone knew it (for weeks!)

Turner is a stud

SLC

TD Tre!

Wow. That was a good drive. Well called and executed. Think we will build off that? Or go into 3-4 series of slog?

We put the K in Kwality

It would be nice to break the pattern

Where's the beef?

Next series will go back to run run pass.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Turner is going to be a playmaker for us, great size, ball skills, and speed. Getting more and more touches and it's paying off.

Tre turner is fast as hell

Yes, time for a Hokie Shot!!

What a way to bounce back

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Now that's what I'm talkin bout Willis

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.

I don't know how this will end, but I see a team building that I will love watching for the next few years

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

That's some sweet play calling combined with execution and a highly rated recruit!

Behold the future Hokie Fans!

To good Friends... good health... and the besting of Hoos.

Willis threw a fake block on that Turner TD. It was something to behold.

Deablo, what the fuck. It was overthrown anyway..

He was beat. Actually a good decision.

We put the K in Kwality

It's a split second decision. He didn't have to do that with help coming in from the side though. It's still a bang bang call he has to make.

Dumb ass play. He wasn't going to catch that.

But, the held with that great blitz. Now, let's go offense.

Dialbo gambled to save the touchdown

What the fuck was that Divine

He knew he was beat, and didn't want to give up the TD

.Uuuggghhh. Ball was uncatchable

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

God damnit Deablo come on

Defense has been on point today. I love their fight.

Alright, we held them.

Too expensive. We're not an adidas school.

I've noticed Belmar, in a good way, on several plays so far... in pursuit down field and fighting through blocks at the point of attack. Keep it going big fella!

It was a trick play.

Willis keeper up the middle for 8.

What just happened with Dax and the other guy on the sideline

Recruit Prosim

Willis needs to be a bit more accurate.

That's coming back

Is Diaz holding a press conference? Why does he have a green screen behind him?

We put the K in Kwality

He's delivering the weather.

That made me giggle.

We put the K in Kwality

Hey guys, did y'all know that Willis and Hazelton really formed a bond last year while playing on the scout team? And they're roomies! /s

"Tajh Boyd over the middle . . . and it's caught for an interception! Michael Cole, lying flat on his back, ARE YOU KIDDING???"

I heard Boykin has big hands.

Only as much as I know that Jarrett Boykin's XXXL gloves had to be replaced at halftime each game because his fingers burst the seams.

At least they aren't talking about cars and peanut butter sandwiches like the clowns calling the BB game the last two days.

Holy shit, not 1, but 2 DBs running hip to hip with a wr

Recruit Prosim

So who was left open?

Middle crossing pattern looked wide open but i don't remember now

Recruit Prosim

Lol it's weird to see our DB's staying behind the play on a deep ball. When the ball was released I just assumed the WR had a few steps on his man.

Using /s is for cowards.

"It's gonna be close". Runner loses a yard.

We put the K in Kwality

was gonna say exactly this LOL

Anyone seen Savoy? He's been absent since GT.

We put the K in Kwality

I thought I saw him sliding a yard short of the first down marker against Pitt

Yep. Forgot about that. Kid has the dropsies. But I hope he gets chances to make up for it.

We put the K in Kwality

Dax is having a hell of a game

Dax havin a helluva game so far. Also good to see ladler back after what looked like a hand injury

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

Love Dax's game & intensity

Dax is a mule!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Well that screen was a fail.

Struggling just to catch the ball now

Recruit Prosim

Miami's DB's have had tight coverage and have been getting their arms in on our last few catch attempts.

Belmar trying to pursue. Gets held/horse collared. No call.

We put the K in Kwality

Once again, Farley doesn't not seal the outside, and now they are missing tackles.

And getting gassed.

We put the K in Kwality

Missed tackles. Missed tackles.

We put the K in Kwality

Defense is a bunch of boys not men. Tons of missed tackles and they get pushed around.

Screen game is killing us.

Using /s is for cowards.

Gotta love Miami's 3 holding.

They're not calling it. Might as well keep doing it.

We put the K in Kwality

2 10 yard dives back to back. Tighten up line

Recruit Prosim

When was the last time we caught an interception?

We caught the last interception.

We put the K in Kwality

Tackling on that screen was bad, but this game shouldn't be close. Offense has been wildly inconsistent and damn near handed Miami 7. I am not happy with our offensive output this half.

Well here we go again. Missed tackles and unable to shed blocks.

That defines our D

The offense can't run the ball. And to many misses and dros on pass plays.

Completely lost our fire. We are sitting back and receiving blocks. Playing react....not attack.

We put the K in Kwality

Attack the LOS

Recruit Prosim

Us being down at the half isn't on the defense, don't get that shit twisted. Offense handed them their first TD and hasn't capitalized on the myriad of stops we've made defensively.

Absolutely. This game again is on the offense

What the hell was that goal line play?

Line up tight knowing a young defense will follow and run around them with your athletic QB. Pretty simple stuff.

Where's the beef?

Belmar got owned there

Very weak end of the half for us. Disappointing. At least we're in this one.

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

40 got juked out of his soul

Recruit Prosim

Yeah, because he overplayed the run instead of staying in his lane. Floyd has the outside sealed.

So we're gonna take a knee and run out the clock now right?

0:33 with 3 TOs. One run and let the clock expire.

We put the K in Kwality

Now that's the D I know!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Well, that was way too easy, all because we couldn't hold on 3rd & 4 when Farley bit and then Belmar overplays on the QB and doesn't trust that his teammate Floyd had the outside. Miami is figuring out our defense. So, our offense better wake up in the 2nd.

Prevent defense bites again.

Matt Ryan smiled at this comment.

Using /s is for cowards.

Just run out the clock. Fuente thinks he can save the TO's for the 2nd half apparently

another second half collapse incoming

Three timeouts left down by three and you take a knee? Teach the kids its ok to give up possessions. Especially since the U gets the ball to start the second half.

Oh great...the third quarter.

So, 30+ seconds, 3 timeouts and they call an screen and let the clock roll. Too many coaches do not look at the end of the first half like the end of the game. Wasted possession. Clear to me Fuente doesn't trust his own offense.

Gotta love the bubble wrap offense. So scared of a turnover that we don't even want to run a play.

Do you trust them?

Lets see if we can move away from the second half offensive let down. Winnable game

Maryland tied Ohio State.
Citadel tied Alabama for a half.
Our defense can't stop Miami.
Pathetic.

The sad thing is I really don't care if we win or lose this game. Complete apathy has set in at this point. There is no fun watching a struggling medicore ACC team play another struggling mediocre ACC team.

It's not like we haven't been in this situation before. We sucked in 2012, 14 and 15 as well but this year feels different.

Just saw someone got thrown out for throwing a paper airplane. So there is some good coming out of this game!

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

We can blame the defense all we want but we are playing freshman all over the place.

What's with all the dropped passes?

The offense has to win this game.

Anyone blaming the defense hasn't been paying attention. The offense is why we are losing.

Where's the beef?

Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full from blaming the OC for throwing passes that hit receivers in the hands but get dropped as being bad play calls./s

Seriously though, I have no idea why they can execute some plays and look inept on others.

Willis could be more accurate too. A couple of the "drops" were poorly thrown balls.

Still having problems with throws over the middle.

I didn't say the OC. The receivers definitely need to catch those balls.

Guess you didn't notice the /s

Why do I dread the second half? Is it because the team consistently gets whacked and out coached in the 3rd and 4th quarters?

The missed tackles are so disheartening. Just sloppy technique. Pick up your f-ing head!

Where's the beef?

Molly McGrath is so.....qualified

Most qualified.

We put the K in Kwality

We started out the second half with a defensive stop.
.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

And a stop,.

3 and out to start the half.

We needed that stop

"The Cup is going nowhere MIkey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I want it to be known that we had more rushing yards than passing yards in the first half (86 rush, 85 pass).

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Are screens considered passing or rushing?

Recruit Prosim

That's how we used to do it back in my day.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I am far from an expert, but it looks like Willis just throws to his 1st read whether the guy is open or not

Slants all day

Where's the beef?

Had to step out for a minute so I am late with this comment, but was Dax not on the field the last possession of the half?

Turner bails out Willis' bad throw.

I kike that Willis appears to be improving in the slant throws

"with all due respect, and remember I’m sayin’ it with all due respect, that idea ain’t worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin’ it on" - Ricky Bobby

Patterson was there but Willis overthrew it

Actually looked like Willis made the wrong read. The DB played outsode leverage and the safety shifted away. Patterson was cutting inside free.

"Peoples with an excellent job of runnering right there"

To good Friends... good health... and the besting of Hoos.

Gotta finish drives.

Patterson can't get open.

Patterson had 2 steps on that DB. He just broke inside and Willis threw outside.

Patterson was open to the inside and almost recovered to the deeper route to the outside but the ball was overthrown. Could have been a miscom but the pass took away any chance.

Our kicker is really bad...i swear he has missed like 5 straight from 40+.

Went from 14-10 to 24-10. Not great Bob.

edit: 24-14

I realize this team could probably figure out how to lose 4 points but its actually 24-14.

Good catch, my bad.

Well that's game because if history is any indication from this season, this team has no idea how to respond to adversity

This team still cannot tackle.

There's a familiar sight. 50+ yd untouched TD runs are our specialty... on defense.

Vent thread? /s

Haha. You first. Guitar Man deleted my last one. Even though I was 100% dead on.

Don't worry guys we are usually awesome in the 3rd quarter.....

Well, once again, the opposing team adjusts. They realize that anyone can run on the Hokies and that's what they are doing. Meanwhile, our offense makes no changes.

When is the last time we intercepted a pass?

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Almost asked this a bit ago. Last one I remember was fsu!

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Our D has giving up 1 play and we're down by 10.

We put the K in Kwality

Game over

It's sad to be able to say that, knowing we can't mount a comeback.

Willis just isn't doing it for me anymore. He's out there just throwing it up into coverage and inaccurate as all get out. Just put in Hooker and ride this thing out. I've supported him but now I've seen enough.

Willis isn't the problem

Recruit Prosim

He's not the main problem but he has been horrific for the most part the end of the first half and into the second. He's making bad reads and just throwing it up into coverage, and when he does find the open man on these slow developing plays, the receivers have to make an acrobatic catch every time. It's just reckless. But I suppose the best we have at this point. Don't get me wrong I love his fight and he doesn't quit, but he's just spraying the ball all over the place right now.

Then we should call quick hitting plays

Recruit Prosim

OFFENSIVE LINE - That's our real problem. They can't control the line of scrimmage, open holes for the run game, but, they are good at helping the QB or RB's up after runs for loses. A good O-line will make Willis great, and Peoples a Heisman candidate. It would also remove 87% of our complaints of the offense.

I count 5 throws behind the receiver, so....

Welp, the offense this game has shown promise a few times but been unable to finish drives... it's just an unending story. These turnovers are backbreaking.

Yeah. That fumble was a killer.

And the meltdown continues.

I'm still going to the UVA game next week to support this team... albeit with low expectations so I may insulate myself from the prospective emotional terror.

I really hope they do so we can see exactly how bad an idea that really is. But, the coaches want to win this game.

Yes, please. The season is completely lost. Why can't we give Hooker a quarter or two, just to see what he can actually do. (My request is based on the assumption that the coaches will actually let him throw.)

Too bad Fuente doesn't like making QB-related "coaching" decisions during the actual game.

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

NO! Save him for the future. Behind this meager O-line, he will get gun shy and always be fearing for his live...just like what happened to Logan Thomas. Once you begin to fear the defense, because your protection is so weak, you lose composure and confidence.

Future? What future? He's already redshirted.

I've never turned a game off early but the rest of this game will be a struggle for me

I typically don't drink but this season's really making me want to start.

Using /s is for cowards.

This has been the hardest season of football to watch in my lifetime.

Lmao Fuente is fucking pathetic how can repeatedly not make second half adjustments.

Just end this season already.

They are bringing extra rushers every time, call an effin screen play.

OK, 3rd &9, they bring the house and no screen or relief receiver, then our "not so special" teams blow it.

So you yank Willis last week when he is actually playing well, but he's been playing like ass since the early 2nd quarter and no QP sightings. Makes sense.

I'm glad someone else is seeing the same QB play this game as I am. I like Willis and he's tough, but he has been bad most of this game. No QP when he's actually struggling, but we alternate him in and kill momentum when Willis is hot. The offense makes no sense at all.

Staff didn't plan well. They can't play qp now because you won't be able to play him next week. If only we would have executed the insertion of qp better. I mean it's the same guy that had success with jerod. Nothing's changed.

For the first time since November 1995 I decided not to watch a VT football game. Then my plans ended early and I thought I'd check on the score. It as 14-10 with VT driving. Within 20 minutes real time the game was another blowout. I can't imagine what the coaches could say at this point that would draw me back in. I've actually had VT football beaten out of me, and I didn't think that was possible.

I've been a fan since 1995. This is the worst VT team I've ever seen. Some of Frank's last 4 teams would blow this one out.

JJ= Not exciting but consistent.

He makes some great plays they just don't look electric. He's a smart kid and a good passer.

I think our offense is a giant conspiracy to make us miss JJ. Coaches rag on Willis' performance post-game, take him out when he's hot and kill momentum, and keep him in when he's struggling to make him look worse. Then we all welcome JJ back with open arms and ride the mediocrity train.

I'll take winning if it's mediocrity.

And the coaches aren't throwing the ball or catching it.

If JJ had Willis's arm, I'd miss him too.

I'm sorry, but Fuente better make a major change or he should be fired. There is no "coordination" in his game or planning.

We have nothing to lose in this game. We're coaching like we have a 10 point lead and are winning the division.

We put the K in Kwality

It's like he's trying to lose games to prove a point. "I told you kids you wouldn't win if you didn't listen to me at practice. You refuse to do things my way, so I'm just going to stand here with my arms folded and watch you lose."

"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

He's the coach, they are not. They should listen and follow instructions. They need to learn to respect and follow authority. A football team is not a democracy. I think in the Pitt games the announcers were talking about player insisting to know "why" before following instructions. This is the root of many of the problems. The players are not in charge. They need to grow up and learn it's not all about them, it's a team game. (This is sounding like UVA was for many of the years past... but they are coming out of it now).

Defense played well enough to beat UVA

Two big turnovers and the offense disappeared. Hopefully all of the receivers will be healthy next week and the offense will show up

Reset all the streaks this year. Bowl streak, UVA streak. Start afresh. Remove the whole '25' jersey tradition. The players don't deserve it right now anyway. Distance the program a bit more from Beamer, I love the guy with all my heart but I still feel there is a shadow over Fuente and his staff that won't go away until the program separates itself from the past a little more.

Fire the appropriate assistant coaches, start afresh and use the youth we have on this team to become better. This comment will probably we controversial but maybe a shit sub 0.500 season might be a good thing in the long run because this has exposed some glaring weaknesses in our mentality and staff that need fixing ASAP if we want consistent, long term success.

College football is a sport where seasons build on each other. A bad season is not just going to spark a revival. This isn't a movie. It's far more likely we just fade into mediocrity because of it. We need to continue to fight and build, not raze the program to the ground

With all due respect to French, we gotta Pickup as many halfway decent JUCOs to replenish our DLine, as possible. I have actually seen improvements from these young defenders, especially the LBs. Then we can start winning games again, with the defense carrying the team.

I can't say the same for the Offense, as a whole. I am not at all impressed with their output. They haven't suffered nearly the attrition as the defense. What's the point in having an offense, if they can't outscore the opponent can carry the team?
