LETS GO!!!

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

HOOOOOOOKKKKKKKKKIIIIIEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are wolves and there are sheep, I am the sheep dog

Where: Blacksburg, Virginia | Lane Stadium (66,233)

Seating capacity is now 65,632. It was reduced some time back for accessibility purposes. I wish it was still 66,233 though because it was easy to remember. 66 divided by 2 equals 33.

or, 65 = (63+2)

Thanks! Now I can remember without having to look it up

Oh hell yes. Number of the Beast, baby!

Lol. I was thinking the same thing. Join and you'll get 6 bottle openers. 1 to use and 5 for the pentagram.

So, do we think we'll be able to get this game on the ESPN app? Will it be blacked out? and where will it be blacked out?

It is listed on the app. So it seems like they are going to cover it.

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

yes. blackouts only occur if a game is on a cable station as well under the right conditions.

Always choose joy.

How is attendance?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I mean, it's still over an hour from kick-off....the stadium would be [relatively] empty even if it were Bama vs OSU

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

Yes, but if you told me there was a football game today, I would laugh at you. Parking lots are empty.

well, I'm not surprised. I just think it's funny to ask about attendance an hour before kick-off...I know tailgating could potentially tell the story but it's not a perfect indicator.

I expect the stadium to be less than half full :(

I wish I could be there, but I'm a bit far for the trip

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

Chris Coleman on twitter says only 25-30k expected... not good.

That's also including students, who probably snagged close to 10k tickets. Wouldn't expect all of those to be used either, it's a dismal day today. Lane will be very empty today.

So it will look like LOLUVA during the height of the season?

Wrong thread.

Attendance not looking good

It's all relative.

What do you expect from an impromptu game where people had to actively buy tickets for a dreary day vs Marshall?

Still, I'd have liked to have seen better.

Anyone local to DC area with fios know if that generic college football place holder on WDVM is our game?

Where's the beef?

Wondering the same thing.

Hate that we couldn't get 7 but points are points.

VT goes on the board first.

That's a good sign, though I'd like to have seen a little bit of offense.

I wonder how much that fog will affect the passing games.

Is the offense going to show up? 2 yds on 3 plays? Come'on!

Let's hope that wasn't the start of our scripted plays and the next time we get the ball we will drive and score like we generally do on the first possession of the game.

I hope we don't have to listen to Vatech the whole game...

I love it. Straight into my veins

Not sure we have the offense to match our lack of defense.

They are quite literally tackling our DEs on almost every play. How is that not holding?

This is the most frustrating series I have seen. Almost every pass play we've had good pressure on the qb.

Ok, defense shows up in the last set of downs. One good thing about this defense is that they never give up.

Nice job getting out of that without any Marshall points.

Please throw it away.

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

Freaking terrible playcalling

Really?

I thought that drive failed because someone missed a block and Willis held the ball instead of throwing it away.

On that 2nd down play, Mclease was jogging across the field while Willis was scrambling... that wont get it done.

Is it football season yet?

Its clear, and has been so, that the staff doesn't trust Willis.

This didn't age well

That sack is a perfect example of why Willis isn't normally our starter. Looked directly at McClease going across the middle and didn't throw. Then he doesn't throw it away and gets sacked...

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

Mclease was jogging with a defender in his hip pocket. Tough through while on the run.

Is it football season yet?

He was still standing in the pocket when McClease was open. But it was a tough throw. Once he rolled out that ball needed to be in the stands.

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

theres our one big run given up

Adding to our record

Good effort watts

Oh my god....

Someone messed up royally there.

Bang... giving up another big play

Bryce Watts does NOT give up on plays.

Still, how does that run happen?

Replay had Ladler and hunter I think both flowing towards the motion which left that side of the field wide open.

If hunter, #17, stayed put or towards that side he would have had the tackle or at least been in position to make the tackle.

Be interesting to see how many "big plays" (50+ yards) we've given up this year as oppsoed to any other. Feels like 2-3 per game

VT has given up the most 70+ yard plays of any team in FBS. Not a distinction you'd like to own.

What a throw there by Willis. Avoided the potential sack, stepped into the pocket, reset his feet and made one hell of a throw.

Moving out of the pocket and making an off balance bomb throw while Tre makes a great catch after having 2 steps on the DB. That was one of the better all around scoring plays this season.

Using /s is for cowards.

how many times do we have to bounce off the guy before we actually tackle the guy? the tackling technique has been terrible for years, but this is bad even by our recent standards.

He went away from the gap and joined the big pile up on the line. Ugh.

Now this is the offense I do like. And that was a throw worthy of the MF tag by Willis.

watched the 2002 replay last night vs Marshall of which I was in attendance and sloppily inebriated. what a stark contrast from today's game, our fans, team, program, etc. We had some big boys on that team and unbelievable backs. The line it up, head smashing sound was insane. D was crazily wild too and flying every where with jive talking confidence. Fans at peak lane loudness on every D-3rd down was awesome too.

MIss that...

Some one said Hollifield is our Grayson Allen... I think he's more like our Ben Boulware. Intensity, emotional, and destroys opposing offenses that opponents hate.

Who said that to you? And did you punch them in the face?

Nice run back on the punt by Hazleton, but it did not look like we set up blocking for a return very well.

Interesting offensive start here in the 3rd quarter

Our offensive line cannot block for a run play.

On offense. So far the defense/ special teams are doing well.

Should've been an easy throw, but again Willis holds onto the ball too long and throws behind him in a panic.

Kumah tried to pick up the DB. That would have made a cool highlight.

If he was able to pick up the defender off the ground that would have done incredibly entertaining not to mention one of the best highlight clips ever!

this 3rd quarter, its been all the receivers choking. willis hits them in the hands, and they drop it.

Not so fast, Willis also missed a wide open Grimsley on a slant earlier in the 3rd. Instead he got sacked (and then sacked again on the next play)

Receivers didn't take back-to-back sacks. Yes, but it ain't all them.

Unfortunately, we expect them to show up for more than a few plays. Even if we win if they play most of the game well we dominate, what a new idea for this team

Good play Willis, keep the ball and take the sack. Stupid play
