Let's go!

HOKIES!

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

NOT A FAN OF PITT

NAFOP

"Don't go to, go through"

Line has moved to 5.5? Easy money betting on pit

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

KCCO

Saw something saying Pitt is w/o 16 players.

They are down 7 starters Tech is down 2.5 ( Waller has only played two games this season)

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Somehow I forgot this game was at 4 and not noon. I appreciated the extra time to get my chores done.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I do appreciates the opportunity to get some chorin done today.

Finally getting settled into the new house. Had some time to finish getting the guest room ready for my brother in law to stay with us this week.

This season has been weird. This is the week of Thanksgiving, the last game should be this upcoming week, and the Big Ten is sitting here playing their 4th or 5th games this week and it's 70 outside. So confusing.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Wow. Seven posts in and no "Fuck Pat Narduzzi"? Apathy really has set in.

Officials before the snap: " Aww Pat, Shut Up"

FUCK PAT NARDUZZI!

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

Bingo.

Nester, Waller, Strong among those listed as unavailable for us today.

Trying to get amped up for this has been difficult.

EAT SHIT PITT

Beautiful day in Madison to watch some football!

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

Are we really 3rd in the country in sacks?? That shocks me. I'm shocked

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Did we ever get a list of who exactly is out? I heard "12".

How can the receiver block downfield while the ball is In the air?

We put the K in Kwality

Pitt out 3 OL starters and they are marching easily

Well...we're holding them to about 8-9 yards per play.

We put the K in Kwality

How can our D be this bad? No pass rush, but receivers are wide open.

We put the K in Kwality

If we win...does Fuente stay? Asking for a friend.

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

The majority of Pitt's offense consists of short passes.

Our defense is playing right into their strengths.

Doesn't exactly seem like a recipe for success.

We are down our 2 top CBs.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Now let's see what Corn spent all week drawing up 🙈

Looks about right. Loosen them up with a 3 and out.

We have them right where we want them.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

A rare stop inside the red zone for the D

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

Holding them to a FG there seems like a win for our defense.

I like Fuente. He represents us well. Just wish he'd win.

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

Glad to see Herbert

...and three and out..:

We put the K in Kwality

You type faster than me. I'll drink.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

And 3 and out to start.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

lol this offense

Danny is always open

Don't disagree with the third down call there Putt just played it well.

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

It was good to go against our tendencies. Just need to push the tempo of it (or hold the fake longer) a bit. Can't telegraph it and have it being slow developing.

We put the K in Kwality

Depends. Was that a play film showed would work, or did they think lets fool them by not running, so let's throw a pass that has the same risk and reward as a run.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

The pet the puddie tat as you enter the stadium is sooooo cute!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Pretty sure it's a kitty

We put the K in Kwality

3 and out, just like Corny drew it up. Heavy heavy eye roll

Taylor, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has A MAN OPEN, CAUGHTTT!!!

Another Brad Brad Brad and punt. With this defense so far, might not be a got game plan

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Playing the long con...making sure we have time on the clock for the last possession of the half.

We put the K in Kwality

This slack commercial will be the death of me today

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Hippie beard and nuts commercials. We're doomed unless we have a spurtle sighting.

I wonder how many of those read option plays are actually called hand offs. Doesn't seem like HH should make the wrong read so often if he has an option.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Defenses do things like scrape exchange to make things tough on the QB, but that seemed to be a strength of his game coming out of HS. If it isn't an option, they still go through the motions to tie up the backside edge.

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

I'm watching on espn app...so need someone to update those quality #GOACCN commercials for me.

All I get is those stupid Nissan/Heisman House ones.

We put the K in Kwality

Dax and dat towel, baby!

We put the K in Kwality

Definitely the 12 man on the team when not one of the 11 on the field.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Nice wrap up tackle by Conner.... That's not something he usually tries, so good for him

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

We decided to be a defense team again.

Holy shit we fielded a punt!!

Turner fielding punts now

Blackshear probably deserved being yanked from those duties

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

The wounded duck! Exactly how it was drawn up...

Hey we caught a punt things are really looking better.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

FUCK ME

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Man, screw Corn. Whyyyy get all cute.

Herbert has to eat that.

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

FIRE BRAD CORNELSON IMMEDIATELY!!!!

Stupid cutesy plays

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Herbert. Don't pitch the ball if TR aid falling down.

We put the K in Kwality

Why are we getting cute with trick plays this early? Geez. Textbook way to lose a game.

Lulz

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Why would Herbert toss that ball after seeing Tre slip?!

Holy back to back turnovers Batman

Play call was crap, but Herbert should have not pitched it and just taken the broken play.

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

Cornelson tried that play against Liberty and it got absolutely blown up. To go back to it 2 games later is insanity

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Equipment manager is on the shit list again. Between a Hooker's self tackle in the 4th last week and Tre just now. Get. Longer. Fucking. Cleats.

Well...this game has gone full-on stupid.

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

Looks like Corny is too desperate to trick Pitt to see if we can actually beat them. Throw it down the field, please.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

this game is pretty ridiculous already

Defense saves our ass

Somehow we just improved field position with that exchange.

We put the K in Kwality

FUCK ME BETTER, THANK U CONNER

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Why, why, why that play call. It's like Corn is trying to force Tech to fire him! Keep it fuckin simple!!

Alright, good play there

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Fire Cornelson.

Defense looks serviceable

Offense is a shit show

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

We're in five down territory now

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Time for another double reverse..

They'll never see it coming!!

3rd down QB draw...

3rd and medium QB draw right on queue, I kind of want to turn off this game already

3rd and 6, QB draw

It's like clockwork with Corny

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

......and 4th, good lord

Omg. QB run on 3rd down.

Shocking!!!!!!

Lol Hoffman is borderline dirty/silly. Anyone else see him flop on the Pitt guy after the play was over?

Is lil braddy boi on the field for this game? So he can see his shit up close?

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

I don't think that we are self-scouting. We've had so many drives compromised this year by verticals on 1st down.

Corn is a terrible OC

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

It's starting to become funny

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Is cornelson serious with this shit? Fucking garbage.

Where's the beef?

Early whistle

Fire Cornelson. Terrible calls.

4th and 3, QB draw from the shotgun after 3rd and 6 QB draw from shotgun

Brad Cornelson, ladies and gentlemen

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

What the fuck. Does he want to be fired or is he just that stupid? Holy shit.

Where's the beef?

The only reason we had 4th and 3 was because everyone in America knew that 3rd and 6 play call just on Pitts side of the 50 was going to be some type of QB run up the middle. That's the only call

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

I mean it's so predictable it's legitimately sad. He's a guy who plays Madden and only runs the same 4 plays because he's playing on Rookie with sliders

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

If 3rd down picked you 3 yards, 4th down should pick up 3 yards, it's simple math

Recruit Prosim

QP can lay down and get two of them.

We put the K in Kwality

Apparently not

Early whistle, fuck

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Ducking stupid playcalling. Shotgun QB sneak in 4th and 3.

We put the K in Kwality

HH was eight yards from the 1st down marker when he took the snap.

We put the K in Kwality

Well I am really glad Holston earned some reps.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Why are we taking the ball out of Herbert's hands? If we are going to stick to the run that's fine, but give it to a damn RB.

TV off.

Im done with this team until Dec 17th.

This is a clownshow

If we're going with those runs on 4th down, can we please see Quincy?

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

We've attempted one downfield pass. If your to play short and cute, so it with more than 1 run play.

We put the K in Kwality

We shouldn't see the same running play twice in a row to convert a 3rd and 6. QP wouldn't have made a difference. Brad cornelson is a terrible OC and he needs to go immediately.

Where's the beef?

two people can't tackle someone, this game is gonna be rough

Throw the ball down the field. Stop running the same 4 plays all game.

Is it really that hard to wrap a player up on a tackle

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

This is pathetic.

Why is there a 10 yard cushion on every play?

Cornelsen needs to be fired immediately. The QB run on 3rd and 6 and 4th and 3.......Fuck

5 timeouts before 10 min of play. These coaches know they get 3 a half not 3 a quarter right?

EDIT: turns out the ACCN graphic was off

Cornelson should have to uber it home tonight

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Do we even have a first down??

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

No

Sorry - we have one. Picked it up on 1st down on drive #2

One, off the tipped pass that Turner grabbed

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Fuente does absolutely no coaching during the game. Just stands with his arms crossed. Would be refreshing to see him do anything active.

We put the K in Kwality

He coaches like a coach who knows he has a prohibitive buyout

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

We cannot tackle today

Pat, put your mask back on, your breath is terrible and we are tired of seeing you cry

Yelling at the refs during his own timeout without his mask and six inches away is classic Narduzzi

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Thats because chinballs told him its not a mask but a chin warmer.

I guess another win but our O can't move the ball at all

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

Fortunate to only be down 6

How many points are we spotting them before we start the offense this week?

Dude. The offense needs to get their shit together. Our D is keeping them at bay even with no moral support coming from the offensive side of the ball.

Down 2 FGs. Corny will believe we're down 2 scores and immediately try 2 deep passes and a QB keeper and punt.

We put the K in Kwality

Nah. Corny can't see more than 10 yards downfield.

He just doesn't understand the game his coaching in. Zero adjustments ever.

We put the K in Kwality

Damn near spot on!

Except we're afraid to pass.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm saying 13

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

Losing to Pitt's kicker, about par for course this year

Take. The. Free. 25. Yards.

This team is just not fun to watch. I have no faith in our offensive coaching whatsoever.

I'm excited to watch the NCSU and LU game tonight

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

Bets on first play call. Qb sweep.

4 yard pass that will teach them.

Herndon?

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

They've been atrocious

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

I hate our OC.

We put the K in Kwality

Apparently we are going QB draw on 3rd down regardless of situation

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Lol "Herndon" Hooker on a QB draw on 3rd down. Shocker

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Tough to watch so far

fucking ridiculous

So predictable....

Is coronavirus over yet?

I think we are reaching GOT season 8 levels of disappointment

Danny is always open

I wish Arya would hurry up and stab me

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

Are you freakin kidding me? Fire Cornelson. We need more than 6 plays in the playbook.

The bigger issue is we need more than 1 play on third down

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Was anyone not expecting QB sneak there? Anyone?

Guys, Im SHOCKED! A qb run on 3rd down.

Wait! We brought in our RUNNING QB, that'll fool them!

BIG BRAIN BRAD

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

It's just incredible to watch Fuente make stupider and stupider coaching decisions each week

Corny has a knack for calling a play that will get us halfway to the first down. On all three downs.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

My goodness, that QP QB power was horrendous. Line couldn't move anyone, slow as molasses developing, and QP just runs right into the back of the OL.

Maybe Corny is just setting up the pop pass on a future third down

Brad is playing 3D chess when we all are playing checkers.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

If the game is checkers, that is game you should play. I am not sure what he thinks he is playing, but if it's football it is not good football.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

...in two weeks.

We put the K in Kwality

Pitt run d legit. Must pass

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

Hopefully we keep trying to run. We have what two passes so far?

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

They called him Herndon Hooker on the play

But the notable part was that Patterson was in on the play

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Offense on track for 110 yards. Feels like the Pitt home game 4 years ago in the rain when we totally sucked.

I'm gonna need a lot more beer for this

Just poured #4. Kids coming in for Thanksgiving, so I got a 15 sampler from Oska Blues, one from Victory, and a third 15 of blue moon. May need to get more.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Pitt already has 132 yards.

We have 27 total fucking yards! And 12 of those were on the deflected pass TT caught.

We put the K in Kwality

Feel bad for the players. Play calling gives them zero chance to succeed. Really playing into their hands.

Herndonrules

No adjustments being made to what the D is playing at all. Cornelson is incompetent. Over his head.

I'm really not a fan of the give them space zone coverage that our secondary plays.

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

Time to change my shirt already. Not sure I can watch anymore

do we ever make contact with the runner before 5 yards?

D Line is Pitts strongest, so running sweeps and options to get around them is the only way to run the ball successfully against them, which is why we wont..

I mean we averaging 0.8 ypr. Corny clearly knows what he's doing.

We put the K in Kwality

Honestly, we are just a bad football team. No sugar coating, this. They are just bad. The players are going the best they can and it's just sad watching this play out the way it is.

Fuente failed us. He doesn't deserve another year.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I think we have enough evidence that coaching is at least half the problem.

Oh I am not blaming the players. They are not being put in a position to win. The coaches have failed them.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

No. We're a poorly coached football team. We have some talent. Just not used well at all.

We put the K in Kwality

Lol poorly coached = bad. I just don't get why people refuse to admit that this team is bad but they'll use all sorts of synonymous to describe this team

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

I think that's what he was saying...no denying the talent on the team, or the effort from the players... but the coaches are squandering it

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

This team isn't 10-2 good, but with half decent coaching they would definitely have a shot at 7-8 wins this season, but that's too much to ask of Fuente and Corn.

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

Commercials seem a lot better/normal today. Pretty sweet laser tag ad.

Nobody let anyone behind you so give them all the 10 yard passes. Hey isn't ten yards a first down? We will stop them in the red zone.

Fuente needs to go.

Pitt is doing to us what we did to them a few years ago. Pass after pass to the flat to Ford and Cam b/c the DB's just would refuse to press up.

This is what I found when I searched for "Fire Corn"

I'd buy the T-shirt.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I've been watching this, instead of watch Fuente drive things further into the ground, these past few weeks. Pretty good depiction of the Yom Kippur War (I have a lifelong passion for MilHist, to be fair).

Valley of Tears

VT '10--My avatar will flip, when things are right at VT again.

Rick Monday... You Made a Great Play...

Romanes Eunt Domus

I think i could randomly pick plays out of a hat and call a better game than this.

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

Guaranty it wouldn't be worse.

We put the K in Kwality

Wondering if there's a point where we start to be okay with losing as long as a change comes... ridiculous this is where we are at after having this coach since 2016.

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

FFS. The defense is staying strong. I can't wait for the anonymous source that leaks the halftime "discussion" that Hamilton has with Corn.

Starting to wonder myself if I'd rather see a win against UVA but keep Fuente and Corn another year, or a loss against UVA and a cleaned house.... It's sad that I'm thinking this way.

I've never seen us completely whiff on so many tackles that should be guaranteed stops.

Pussy ass arm tackling. It's pathetic.

Where's the beef?

Defense needs some help. The O has to do something on this drive.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

We are going to lose this game 21-0 all with field goals.

Surprised we didn't call timeout before the long field goal.

Got to make sure we have the right folks on the field.

And losing to Pitts kicker by more than a score...time to open a Dogfish 120 Minute IPA...

Easy there... you need someone to talk to. Like me. Yes. Split the 120 with me.

Still had them today at Sterling Costco thank goodness

Okay Corny...Let's see your 9-point play???

We put the K in Kwality

Miracle we are only down by 9 after getting our ass Kicked by a shittty Pitt team.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

$10 says another 3 and out

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Ridge wallet is military grade!!!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Actual question - when was the last time we hit a receiver in-stride?

1999

We put the K in Kwality

Danny Coale, Nebraska

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Of course we go qb draw from shotgun on first down.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Somebody PLEASE replace the voiceover lady on the VT commercial

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

Man that could have been a TD but that pass was butts

9 in the box...QB run

We put the K in Kwality

Fingerhut commercial is a fitting commercial for a game Corny calls.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

This is to hard to watch I'm off to grill some country ribs. Fire Fuente unfortunately even with that who would want to come to Tech. Dumpster fire!

That's a touchdown if hit in stride. Told you the qb sweep was coming up. I was just a drive off.

Did QP throw the pass to Mitchell? He's in now and threw the screen to Tavion.

We put the K in Kwality

Dunno, but he's in right now.

Why exactly do we have Herbert returning kicks again after we essentially lost him for two game due to a hamstring? Is the benefit anywhere close to justifying the risk? These are the mind-numbing coaching decisions that leave me shaking my head.

Ok so we were setting up that pass to Mitchell during the entire first quarter.

Wonder what we are now setting up for us to break out in the 3rd

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Quincy throwing passes to ankles

Fade coming.

Think HH got hurt on the QB run?

We put the K in Kwality

Nice Brock.... 15 unnecessary yards. Stupid...

Hard. Smart. Tough.

How are all of our QBs this inaccurate on seemingly easy passes

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

The problem is not the QB. Changing who takes snaps is not solving our issues this time.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Qp taking over. Bad penalty on Hoffman

Welp, knew that 15 yarder was coming.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

2nd and 25 and you FUCKING RUN A DIVE FUCK YOU CORNY

I hope you didn't see third down.

I did. There were more obscenities

Stupid penalties.

Hallmark of a poorly coached team.

Another crap call

WTF, 2nd and 25 and we're having delayed handoffs?

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

2nd and 25. Run up middle for - 1

Wtf is this offense??

lol game off, really what the fuck is the point of of a qb draw on 3rd and fucking 26

This is laughable. This is making Frank's conservative approach look like the air raid offense.

Bring back pro style power offense

Recruit Prosim

We are just continuously running into tackles. It's baffling.

2nd and 25 against best run D in the country. Draw play for -1 yard. Genius

We put the K in Kwality

And 3rd and 26, qb draw! Genius

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Answers with QB sneak. W-the living-F is Cornt possibly thinking?

We put the K in Kwality

Holy fuck. Can we fire a coordinator in the middle of the game? This is pure shit.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I'm out..

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

El oh el. No matter the distance, third down requires a QB draw.

I don't know what to do but laugh and drink more beer.

A QB power on 3rd and 26? What in the hell am I watching?

Oh. My. God.

Qb draw on 3rd and 26.

Why don't we just fucking forfeit?

Holy crap can we rush up the middle some more??? Are assuming we are going to wear their DL down while they rack up fg's on offense???

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

A fucking qb draw up the middle on third and 26? I know we are in decent punt range there, but seriously?

I'm calm now. You don't play for the punt. I have no idea what goes through that man's mind sometimes.

Just like banging your head against the wall, again and again, expecting different results, insane and a headache

So we've run QB draw from shotgun on 3rd and 6, 4th and 3, 3rd and 1, and 3rd and 26

It's so predictable it's legitimately sad

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Third and 26, qb up the middle. Why not...

Why am I still watching this game? 3rd and QB run is not an effective strategy when you do it EVERY SINGLE TIME. Bring back OC Stinespring.

I guess we don't know how to pass. Why did we recruit so many WR's?

C'mon man. Fucking pretend to try to get the first.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Pathetic play calling.

Mitch (2)

I've really never seen a coach as completely and totally terrified of completing an actual third and long play as Justin Fuente.

Wow, total give up play call. That's all you got? How many QB draws so far today?

Herndonrules

Are you kidding me? 3rd and 26. Qb draw? Fire his ass now and email me the playbook I'll text the calls in.

I'm more convinced than ever that Corny should be left at the stadium. QB run up the middle on 3rd and 25? Fuente needs to kick him to the curb

Hmm, Hooker injured? Pulled b/c He can't make Corn's play calling not look like shit?

We going QB draw on all downs from here out? Gonna be a great watch!

This is laughable playcalling. A three year old could do better. How can fuente not take over? Seriously.....

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

3rd down QB draw...

So we move the ball through the air, and then call runs when behind the chains. I guess we have certainly kept Pitt guessing.

If Fuente is gonna go, I wish he had the courage to go out guns blazing....

The fact he won't even try and take over for 🌽 and call plays himself is so frustrating

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

Because he literally doesn't care. $10m-$12.5m buyout if he just doesn't do anything

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

did Whit already tell Fuente he's gone in a few weeks so the coaching staff dgaf right now?

More excited about the Lego Star Wars Holiday Special than anything coming out of Corn's playbook.

Not even trying. SMH. It's like Fuente is already gone...

Is coronavirus over yet?

I honestly think this staff (offense at least) has mailed it in.

Bad week to give up sniffing glue🤷‍♂️

Corny and Fuente have agreed to split the buyout and live in the Caribbean for the next 3 years on VTs dime. The only conclusion I can draw

Corn is going to have to save some of that money, cause he will never get another job after this

I mean at least try to get into FG range or the first on third. Wtf...

When you are playing Pitt, I would look for some PI calls (if you ever pass)

We might as well throw Burmeister out there at this point.

Bad play calling, stupid penalties, and zero effort. Why am I watching this?

Corny must have blackmail photos? Worst play calling this year.

Watch Pitt sink and dunk their way 90+ yds

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

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

This defense isnt going to hold up all game. Our offense has to do something, and they look the most incompetent I've ever seen them look.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Corny playing the long con

8 games running to set up that play.

We put the K in Kwality

Where's this playcalling been?

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

Forget the play calling. Let's talk about hitting a receiver in stride and let that sink in for a moment.

Corn loves to set up one play call for at least 1-2 quarters of vanilla play calls

Yeah. And now we're only down 2. Genius!

We put the K in Kwality

Play Knox Kadum, Corn! You coward!

Got to give credit. Nice call and throw

That was a decent play

Hit Turner in stride

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

That was the entire 1st qtr setup

BIG PLAY TRE

That's it. Our 42 straight QB runs was to set up the bomb to Big Play Tre

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Lmao almost posted the same thing. We're going to just tank an entire quarter and a half to set up one play. Brilliant!

NCAA 100% setup play

Never mind...Corny is a genius. /s

We put the K in Kwality

Credit where credit is due... Nice play call, blocking, and Hooker's best pass of the season.

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

That play worked

Let's put that one on the "Allowed to use again" bucket.

Every 15 draw plays.

I think Corn studied the film extra this week. He was able to find a weakness in this Pitt team... their top 5 run defense

Edit: I'll take it

Finally a good play call. Touchdown

Fake the QB draw and you literally get a 1 play TD drive

Dear Corny, that should be your 'A-ha moment'

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

On the replay looks like we got away with a hold

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

The longer Witt let's this continue the worse it will be. I want Fuente and Corn gone right now.

I don't even care about that touchdown play. I'm the offense is pathetic

I'm the offense is pathetic

Hint: make this post after we run up the gut for 1 yard on 3 and 31.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

To be fair I actually was. No live action for the game out here in AZ

What is Shane beamers agents number? Asking for a friend...

How many people think Fuente called that play?

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

He didn't take the clipboard away during Wake, Liberty, or Miami. Why start now?

Blitzing our ass off. They're missing 122 starters. We get no pressure and they get 12-15 ypp

We put the K in Kwality

Our DBs play soooooo far off the receivers

I don't understand why we always give such massive cushions on the receivers while on defense

I mean. We had a four man rush, so we only had 7 guys back to cover the field.

We put the K in Kwality

Because they can't cover?

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

Taylor sets back 3 yards behind the stick. Waits for the WR to run him over (easily getting 1st). Taylor gets up and celebrates.

We put the K in Kwality

I don't understand the 10 yard cushion tech gives receivers

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Complimentary football. This team just can't even

If a guy has 11 catches in the first half shouldn't he be a receiver to cover?

No because that's man coverage. We don't that. We run zone and only allow 15 ypc.

We put the K in Kwality

37 missed the tackle twice on one play

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

Maybe double cover Turner? Maybe use your arms and wrap up?

Herndonrules

Murray needs to come off the field. His tackling is non-existent.

We put the K in Kwality

Since our Recruiting is straight terrible we literally have no other option

Defense was complete chaos on that drive.

Is coronavirus over yet?

DJ Turner has ELEVEN catches with 6 to go in the half.

Maybe scheme to cover him...

Edit: I'll keep drinking

And even the announcers are wondering why w are giving up nine yard passes every play.

We should consider trying to tackle one of these games. We'd give up a lot fewer yards.

I don't care how many former Hokies are on the defensive staff, they're complete garbage and they've all got to go.

Blitz hasn't gotten home all day, Hamilton.

They're throwing right where you are blitizing from.

We are just not a well-coached team in any aspect.

If I had a dollar for every time Lasser has said "wide open", I could buy out a contract

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

At least one change on offense this week — I haven't seen Blackshear taking snaps as a RB yet (unless I've missed it)

QB draw incoming

oh wow a nice WR screen who would have thought

Turner just got mugged, no call

Pat yelled at the ref and told him not to call it.

We put the K in Kwality

Oh, good. 3rd and 5

We put the K in Kwality

Tre's draft status is tanking with every pass thrown at him.

Oh Turner that should have been caught

ACC should fine him for that. That's the exact thing they are trying to prevent.

Did we really just call the exact same play we tried to run before the first one was called dead?

Yes

Tre's hands and maddeningly inconsistent. Glad he caught that one, but f$@*

Hey! Pass over the middle. Something good happened.

We put the K in Kwality

Big dick Tre with TD #2

Fantastic catch by Turner there, making up for his drop.

Pitt is vulnerable in the air. Hammer them with it.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Better do a QB draw then -Corn probably

Man, total 180 now with the offense. Throwing the ball down the field and attacking the weakness of this D finally.

Looked like tre hurt his left arm or hand.....nice grab though!

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

Great... we get the passing game going and BJ decides to take a play off

Honestly, that should have been the 2nd kick out of bounds by Johnson. The previous one he was bailed out by the fair catch

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Yup. I was thanking the receiver on the one prior for the free 10 yards.

Zero pressure

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

[bracing and hoping not to see a flag]

JHam is not ready to coach at this level. His players cannot tackle and he has stuck with the zone giving Pitt easy quick throws all day. No adjustments to the game. The offense is going to have to win this game.

No paas coverage either

Not an indictment against him, we thrust him into this role because of the incompetence of our administration and staff. He simply isn't ready for this yet

Recruit Prosim

Why does it take him almost a full half to realize you can pass the ball?

Hooker, Corn, or Fuente?

If Conner had turned his head, that's an easy INT

That's always frustrated me about our corners

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I've always hates the face shielding coverage we employ

Where's the beef?

We literally do not cover receivers prior to 8 or 9 yards downfield. What in the absolute fuck

A giant sloth on quaaludes could get open against this defense.

I still have eligibility?

Where's the beef?

Why are we playing soft coverage on 3rd and short

Our secondary's scheme this year has been confusing

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Where the hell is the flag for holding on that one?

BS! Crappy spot. The refs game him the 1st down

"It's caught"
"It's caught"
"It's caught"

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Why are we waiting for the qb to run into our tackle past the line to gain

IT Doesn't help if you get a clean shot and totally missed the quarterback

[whiff].... 6 points

DAMN! No.pass coverage!

everything is a joke.

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

Terrible angle by the blitzer, then the DBs are covering air I guess.

That looked like PeeWee football

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Welp, our defense is now right in the middle of shit show status right now

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

That play was a gigantic UGHHHHHHH

I mean seriously?! Blown sack and the WR is sitting wide Effin open in the end zone to field the punt-pass.

We put the K in Kwality

This Marshmellow zone scheme is shit.

A ball floating like that should NEVER be completed

Boy, if it had worked, this Justin Hamilton story would have been a great one.

It... has not thus far.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

This soft zone on the edges is just abysmal

Bud got away with it because we could get pressure on the QB. But we don't have that now, so we are just giving away yards at will

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Can we please play for same D we did last week? Man-free with LBs 4-6 yards deep?

We obviously cannot play zone.

We put the K in Kwality

That would be an omission of guilt that this staff doesn't know what they're doing, so they can't do that now

Recruit Prosim

Glad we spotted them 9 pts before we started to play on offense.

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

Can't wait to play the slow tempo offense and not score before the half

Turning into the UNC game, both defenses suck against the pass.

JHam has to fix something. Pass coverage were you let the guy catch the ball and trying to take them is not a good plan!

Posting pre-emptively... 3rd down an draw

Again, zone coverage for a score.

I really want a coach who will call third down plays actually designed to get the ball past the first down marker

Good job, Hooker, you just sacrificed Smith on that one.

Don't pump fake to the guy you throw to. You're setting up a bad hit and that's what just happened. That's a high school mistake

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Hell yeah I hope we really go for it here.

Hooker quick kick?

Taylor, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has A MAN OPEN, CAUGHTTT!!!

Watch Pitt still drive enough to get within FG range

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

4th and 1 on our own 33. Would totally be CornFu move to go for it. Get 1-yard. TO on downs. Then Pitt scores on the next play.

I'm sick of this. Cornelson really should be fired long ago. But Fue is so slack assed this won't happen. No fire in anyone's belly. Just sad.

Lol we weren't going to snap and we still get a false start

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

We are such [weak willed cowards]

What? Tight coverage? Who was that?

We play to not lose and still lose every game what a shitty sequence there

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Boring conservative disappointment

My lips are sore from chef's kissing

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

lol these announcers think we have any semblance of a two minute offense

Can't wait to see how we have no plan for getting points here

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Are you implying we had any kind of plan to begin with?

A short pass over the middle isnt the way to get 70 yards in 30 seconds?

Let that hand swell up over the half

That was a punt that had to be fielded as a fair catch

We have three timeouts let's push this ball downfield

I don't trust we will

So does he play for field goal or run out the clock. Wow, a pass

Why dont we run a slant to the middle? T
Pitt has so many in the box, its open

A pass to the middle of the field for 5 yards.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

They are giving us the pass in the middle. TAKE IT!

Lol took a time out just to get smacked

For as much as we have improved in run blocking pass pro has been sad

Halftime assignment, name one coach that you think is better than Fuente that he has out coached......

I'll wait.

Taylor, looking desperately, now throws it deep, has A MAN OPEN, CAUGHTTT!!!

Dave Doeren

We put the K in Kwality

Every week that passes makes me glad that fans weren't allowed at games this year, because attendance in Lane would be just flat out sad the second half of the year

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

As I assume we all already knew, Hooker isn't all that good and our coaching is terrible.

Ready for the next guy. It's hard to believe the next 3-5 years won't be dark times.

Our two minute drill is a steaming pile of shit. No pass protection and hooker has no idea how to throw it away and avoid sacks. This offense is run by a complete maroon as buggs bunny once said

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

I wish I cared about basketball at all. It would give me some glimmer of something to look forward to with sports this year.

Just try it. It's super fun! I'm all in on coach Mike Young and his fistfuls of popcorn.

Get Angry, Bud!

The halftime show correctly called out tech's soft coverage and extremely poor tackling. It is definitely not the lunch pail defense That is on the coaching staff.

YOU TELLIN ME WITH ALL YOUR TIMEOUTS AND 30 SECONDS YOU COULD SCHEME UP MORE THAN FIVE YARDS OFF A PASS TO THE MIDDLE OF THE FIELD!? Well..:pssshhh why don't you try out to be the OC then 🤦🏻

To be fair, we didn't even use two of those TOs.

Wow, good kick....ugh

Remember when Fuente was supposed to be a QB whisperer

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

And losing to Pitts kicker again, good job by the defense though

Let's go Herbert!

Just checked score on my phone. After last two weeks I said nope not watching. Went Christmas shopping with the wifey and now eating sushi. From what I see it's another sh$t show. Not gonna dedicate my time to this mediocrity. And I am glad I did not.

Blackshear has been such a disappointment this season after all the preseason hype he was getting from the staff

Feed Herbert

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

We look like UVA. There I said it.

Where's the beef?

Nah, that gives us too much credit

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Pitt couldnt of guessed that was coming on 4th down. No creativity

QB run on 3rd or 4th down...where have I seen this play before?

Absolutely awful playcalling again. Should be a TD though after replay

Agreed - he put the ball on the goal line.

Nah man never crossed the line

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Cornelsen is absolutely awful, but we are also far, far, far past the point of being able to use him as a scapegoat and not directly tying his playcalling to Fuente as a HC.

Fuente is the reason Cornelson is still employed.

The buck stops at the top. No excuses. Fuente has ruined the Virginia Tech brand and the next coach has a hell of a lot of work to do to build it back

Apathy doesn't begin to describe it

Meh. ✌️. I'll watch the rest if we win somehow.

Whether he got in or not, the spot is way inside the half yard line they spotted it at.

4 plays inside the tackles with the exception of a gimmick play that didn't work. Nothing to the edge, no jet sweep action to move someone out of the box... nothing.

We are the only defense that can play essentially prevent defense as our base coverage and still give up huge passing plays like that

Fu - 10 wins, 9 wins with Beamer talent, then 6 wins, 8 wins (3 of those against Furman, Rhode Island, and ODU), and now likely 4 wins. Arguably three of the top five worst losses in school history, ended the win streak, ended the UVA streak, recruiting at the bottom of the ACC. A move has to be made, no excuses at all for keeping this awful staff.

We are so soft

Is coronavirus over yet?

What a fucking joke this team is. Feel for the kids but they just arn't good enough either

Were gonna end the year on a large skid at this rate

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Pitt kicker 15- Virginia Tech 14....what fun

I'm convinced that Vegas makes us a favorite as an inside joke to bettors - a promise that there will always be at least one covered spread every week

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

The general betting public (not the serious bettors) see the VT name and think we're still a good program. They don't watch enough to know we're a dumpster fire. They just know we were good once. So Vegas is setting the line knowing it'll get a lot of public money on those people.

FUgly and getting FUglier, FU.

Big respect to Dzansi for getting like 50 yards downfield

We have some good player, and some that can't hold their own, and that's costing us

Question...what would our record be if we hadn't got Herbert?

Yikes...

Is coronavirus over yet?

I credit the offensive players for trying, at least. It's not their fault their coaches have a penchant for setting them up for negative results.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I've switched to Pete the Cat with my kids.

Since Xfinity refuses to carry the ACC Network, at least I'm not paying to watch this dumpster fire. So I guess that's a positive.

3rd and 12, anyone feeling a qb draw would be a GREAT play here?

Everything is falling apart...Johnson misses

Brian Johnson has completely lost his mojo

>:(

Lol, totally a VT way to end that drive

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I don't think even Clemson can keep us from being the noon game on ACCN.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Maybe we'll get lucky and they'll kick us over to RSN instead

That would be the best outcome for my mental and physical health.

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

Are you kidding? TV loves a bloodbath

Can we just leave the coaching staff in PA and roll with a player coached team the next two games? Can't get any worse, and it'd make it more entertaining I think.

Down 19 and you miss the field goal nice. Even if I was rich I would even think about donating a dollar to this program right now

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

Horrible investment. Need confidence in things improving, before I'll donate again. A coaching change would make me warm up to giving money..

The sad part about this is we haven't hit rock bottom. That'll be the next 2 to 4 years depending on how long Fuente is coach

Yup. The next couple of years are going to be ugly. We are going to have to be very patient with the next Head Whistle.

I can't believe this dude has turned me so negative. I wanted him to succeed so bad. Seemed like such a good hire at the time too. Just very disappointed

You and me both. I was overjoyed with his hire. Hell, 2 years ago I was still onboard. But things are just so damn bad right now.

I want VT football to be fun again. This isn't fun

I want VT football to be fun again. This isn't fun

Exactly this. Whether we were going .500 or competing for ACC Championships, Tech football had kept me invested since I've started watching. Now, this shit isn't fun, like at all. To the point that I have minimal feelings about the games because we're just finding ways to not show up on one or both sides of the ball. We're getting out coached, out played, out hearted every game now. I can handle losing if the team competes and looks like they had a chance. Getting embarrassed and expecting to lose takes out the joy that goes with watching sports. At this point, I think I'd be happier if we didn't play another game this season.

You're not the only one.

He was one of the big names at the time, but unfortunately sometimes these things just don't pan out. There were some red flags that I think were overlooked. He got credit for giving Memphis a pulse, but he had never managed a P5 program with serious expectations before, and had never been a strong recruiter. Those things were glossed over, and unfortunately there was a lot of learning on the job. Just wasn't a good fit.

Is there anyone left on TKP who truly thinks we should retain Fuente? We're getting absolutely waxed by a 4-4 Narduzi coached Pitt team

Rayo is flaming me up this thread for saying he should go, so there are a couple

I would've been that guy 4 games ago but I think I was just blinded by hope.

No you've just said it like 1000 times and everyone on the site agrees with you

If you don't like it, skip the comment. Nobody is forcing you to read a goddamn thing.

Some idiote on Tech Talk Live's Facebook thread said monday night that the problem isnt fuente its the "campus culture". Some idiotic fans (non from TKP though) still think this dumper fire isnt on Fuente.

The halftime show correctly called out tech's soft coverage and extremely poor tackling. It is definitely not the lunch pail defense That is on the coaching staff.

To the announcer..."thanks Captain Obvious!"

The UVA game is going to be ugly....

We have no hope of winning another game this year.

Eaten alive by Kenny Pickett.

EATEN. ALIVE.

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

I hate how numb I am to this. It breaks my heart.

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

Same here. I feel so.....uninvested?

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

No tackle defense

Honestly at this point I hope we just get run out of the stadium.

The coaching leadership is so lacking we need some dramatic results for actual changes to start happening

I agree. But can we afford to make a move with the COVID deficit in the budget?

Can we afford not to at this point? I feel like the product on the field right now will cost us a whole lot more long term than making that decision right now re: the buyout

FYI Pitts kicker has more points then our offense.

And probably more tackles than our defense

Wow that was the epitome of the entire season

At this point I just want someone to come in and make us a tough football team again.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Fuente is not the coach I hoped he would be. Pathetic.

Is that Kenny Pickett or Tom Brady?

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

Let's be honest here. The coaching sucks, but the personnel is really bad as well. I know we don't want to rag on the players, but as someone said earlier, there are some really wink links on both sides of the ball. Scary thing is, with our recruiting, it's gonna get way worse.

Pitt has identified the biggest weakness, our back seven, and they are hammering it over and over and over again, because our players are either incapable of competing or our coaching is so stubborn that they refuse to adjust. I'd bet Pitt has really just been working from a base of a few passing plays today. No reason to change because we refuse to try and compete.

To be fair, Pitt is a pass first team this year. so they haven't necessarily identified a weakness so much as played to their strength.

Is coronavirus over yet?

True, but when it's the same play right and the same play left, it's by design. They know we're giving the 10 yard cushion, no matter what happens, so their just taking the free yards. Because we're nice, we're gifting them a bonus five or ten after the catch with our patty cake tackling. I mean 7 has like 20 catches today. That's finding a weakness and going back to the well until the D decides to take it away. Luckily for Pitt, we have no interest in taking the 5 yd hitch or out away, so...

I just wonder if Coach Beamer had held on one more season could we have had the same success in 2016. Or was it just Jerod mixed with luck???

This offense can look good if you have a phenomenal talent. Evans made these coaches look good. But it's clear now that the coaching wasn't the reason 2016 was productive. I think if Beamer stayed, Jerod plays elsewhere, and we finish with 6 or 7 wins

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Yea Jerod was going with Fuente whether it was Memphis or Blacksburg and we probably would have started Motley in 2016 had Beamer stayed.

Is it too early to start that Pitt vent thread?

Get Angry, Bud!

The Justin Hamilton hire is starting to look like the James Johnson hire.

I willing to give him a pass. He's installing a new system with absolutely no practice and he's got a bunch of new faces on the field. Additionally, as bad as we've recruited, the really bad recruiting has been on the defensive side. He has almost nothing to work with.

Is coronavirus over yet?

How many punts have they had?

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

JHam needed to leave Buds system in place for this year. No reason to even attempt the install after spring camp got canceled. He wasn't an outside hire unfamiliar with the current system. He played under Bud, coached under Bud and probably could have gotten input from Bud as the season went on. Honestly that is probably the biggest fuck up of the season. It also quite possible that Ryan Smith and Jack Tyler are better play callers than JHam. I think he is in over his head.

Not sure I can do the same. 4 field goals and 5 touchdowns against you when you are playing 'keep everything in front of you' is just bad coaching. If you are going to give up that many scores might as well take chances.

I thought the 4 FGs were huge wins for this defense.

Additionally, if the offense does anything at all, Pitt doesn't have the opportunity to score that many points.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Good Lord. The announcers called the play as soon as they lined up and they still gained 6.

How can these idiotic announcers figure this out and our coaches cannot.

I repeat the ACCNetwork announcers are seeing trends that our coaching staff doesn't.

Hey, at least we are all now saving on our electric bills now that all the devices are turned off.

I can't wait until December 16th

My lips are moving but there's no sound
Someday somebody's gonna get run down

Well we have made Kenny pockets NFL tape today.

Holler at me when he's gone. I'll be around for my intermittent basketball interest.
