Dax may have his limitations as a linebacker. But as a hype man? His potential is through the roof. Love his reaction on Robinson's TD catch and run.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

If he had any more Virginia Tech in him you could serve him for thanksgiving dinner.

Looks like they fit

That's a big undertaking, but he's doing quite well.

Sheesh that's a good one

I love his hype. One thing I fear is the cultural leaders of this team as aging out and leaving. Who will be the next generation to carry the spirit forward? Whether it is Fuente's culture or another coach's, we will need student-athlete LEADERSHIP to get us through the next few years!

Somebody always steps up, we just might not have seen them yet

Dax is a total ball of energy and excitement. I love that he is always excited about something--be it a big play on either side of the ball or playing in the sprinklers in the middle of a game. He brings a spark to the team.

He was probably that kid in elementary school who exhausted the teacher but was still one of the favorites. (I have had many students like this---exhausted me beyond belief and drove me crazy at times but I loved them to death)

Great to have giftory back. Watching these back, it's clear this game was won by the players. Such great individual effort on all these plays. Love it.

I think Divine caused an out of body experience on that hit...

I was just waiting on a bs flag to be thrown for targeting...thankfully it didn't go there.

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

I understand your thoughts, but it was a clean hit.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Oh I know it was a clean hit, but at the moment it happened I thought "please don't be targeting".

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

I fully understand your thinking. Any time one of my teams makes a big play, I am always worried about a flag too.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

I was looking for a flag on the big run by Juice considering how easy that play was and how big of a play it was. There just had to be something stupid like a hold or illegal formation...I was pleasantly surprised.

got that slinky spine motion reminiscent of hunter cantwell

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

That poor kid. That's only one of about 15+ shots he took that game. And STILL kept playing... much respect.
That TV shot of him on the l'ville sidelines with bloody nasal packing stuffed in his nose.....

Shoutout to JHam with a nice pop at the end of the video. That's one of my favorite videos and if I remember correctly Cantwell was talking junk about the D before the game so...yeah.

Man, why does that film look the game was played in the 80s? lol

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

ACCN. I think all the cameras they have setting up high to watch the field instead of trying (and failing) to follow the ball carriers must be second rejects from other networks left over from the 80's because they all look like that.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Divine Deablo aka Kam Chancellor 2.0

Let's Go

HOKIES

Kam's got a teleporter. Only way to explain how he comes out of nowhere.

That wasn't the only time he did that to Vernon Davis either. Davis still probably has nightmares about Kam.

-Stan Lee

"Never half-ass two things. Whole-ass one thing."
-Ron Swanson

"11-0, bro"
-Hunter Carpenter (probably)

And they threw a flag on Kam for laying out Davis like that because "he hit him too hard." (my interpretation)

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

that Kam hit....it doesn't look like it but if you look closely, that's just a Hokie laying out a Terp. Seems right to me

Wasn't that his last play as a Hoo? Then he transferred to someplace where they block?

Folded like a table

#99 wishing he stayed playing QB!

This could definitely be a meme. The ball labeled as the weekend, receiver labeled as me, and Deablo labeled as Monday

Sir, that is quite leg-worthy! I'd call that play "Devine Intervention."

In Bud we trust

Love it.

Coach Mendenhall prayed for divine intervention to win this game. Can't say God doesn't have a sense of humor.

#66 in the lead image really showing how classy a bunch those Hoos are

Which... I'm not saying we're saints at all, but the amount of bullshit that program spouts, and the amount of ridiculous shit they talked to us earlier in the year about how they were doing things the right way and how they had everything together, as opposed to us, Saturday night really exposed that for the bullshit it was. Talked a lot of shit pregame, and they were jumping around and chanting on the sidelines. But the second the cards were on the table, they wanted none of that smoke. Turtled faster than a schoolyard bully who finally encountered pushback.

Nice!

Its also funny, for the lulz I went over to TheSabre during my morning coffee yesterday to see what they had to say about the game, and I was a little surprised to see a consensus "yeah, we deserve to be trash talked right now after everything we said earlier this year". I mean, when your own fans recognize it.....

Hahahahahaha. He's a redshirt Freshman kicker. Read: spoiled brat since he was on the sideline for the game (loluva win) last year but didn't see the field. Talk about a yippy dog barking with no bite. Whatever kid...go sit down and take your L.

It's Bronco's mo. Kemp kicked Chatman early in the game and it didn't get called. Multiple times guys jumped late on the pile or down Hokie player no call. Then the end throwing punches.

They pulled Herbert's leg oddly on a tackle in the 2nd half. It looked really odd to why you'd do that other than to injure.

The Sabre is flippin delusional after the game. Always ready to throw stuff out at us but never willing to accept that their team is just as bad if not worse.

Great to this this once more during football season. Thanks Joe!

The first game (in a while) that I felt like Virginia Tech football looks like Virginia Tech football - big hits, turnovers, dominant running game, physically tougher, guys flying around the field. I'm pleased.

one of the things that's so frustrating about Fuente, to me, is that during his entire tenure we do have individual games like this. Games where we look like a good, tough team. But we are so damn inconsistent that it's maddening. We can look like a tough traditional VT team one week and then look soft and uninspired the next. That inconsistency and inability to find and fully buy into an identity are big reasons I can't support keeping him around much longer. If he is coaching at VT again next year I will expect us to have 2, maybe 3, games where we look tougher than our opponent and then 3 or 4 games where we look softer than a down pillow. The others are games where we look good on one side and awful on the other. The only thing that is consistent about VT football is that we are inconsistent. We have been ever since 2016.

Oh what a satisfying GIFtory. Thanks Joe.

I absolutely love all the shots that show our sideline during big plays. You could tell the guys wanted this one so badly.

Thanks for all the hard work putting this together Joe! Great way to start a Monday.

You could see it from the very beginning of the game. The announcers kept talking about all the energy on the UVA sideline, but that energy didn't last very long. Maybe the energy on our sideline wasn't as noticeable since we weren't chanting like a softball team?

I said it in the game thread. UVa was way, way too jacked up for that game. Sometimes when you allow yourselves to get that amped, the second you face adversity, you fold. We should know very well, its what happened to us in Lane against Miami in 2005.

You could even see it play out in real time. The first couple series, when we were on offense, their bench was jumping around, chanting, getting sooooo hype. By the time we were up 10, that stopped. And you can't tell me that didn't fuck with their heads, making an already bad situation even worse.

Mmm. Another of my favorites (because it keeps the house's bragging rights on my side of the bed.)

Whoever is blocking #22 (Lecitus Smith?) on the Khalil run made that play happen.

Also shout out to Austin Cannon, the other guard who got the block on the other side of the hole

I still can't believe he was literally untouched to the house aside from BB putting the ball in his breadbasket

I thought this might have been the first 2 part Giftory. I always enjoy watching the big plays in GIF form, lets you really take in all the little things that made the plays so great.

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

I like this one because Zandier wrote "KILL" on his face like he's a big tough guy. Then he tried to tackle Tre and Tre blew through it like it was a pillow trying to tackle him

Hokie Club member since 2017

Zandier: "How many tackles did I have on that play?"
TrΓ©: "Look at your number, bro."

Druckenmiller the shotgun snap, fakes short, fires it deep into the end zone it is....caught! It is caught for a touchdown by Jermaine Holmes with 47 seconds left!

The OL (52) that got toasted by Hewitt's stunt at the end of the play just randomly stealing Ashby to block so it doesn't look like he got burnt.

This was the moment that I started feeling pretty good about the game. Could just tell how fired up the boys were

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

But they weren't jumping and chanting Seven Nation Army on 3rd down from the bench. How can you have energy if you're not doing that?
