New temporary era starts today.
Lets get the dub, boys!
ESPN has the line at Miami -7
That was the Duke line, I forgot to change it. Good looking out.
The Price is Right
I'm all for JC, but your comment warranted the following....
Bob Barker hitting Adam Sandler gif...
Feeling excited about games again. Go Hokies!!!
Radio kickoff show starts now. 106.7 fm for those in the dmv if you don't wanna stream
Last day in vegas.....parlaying the hokies and the over i think.
Lots of HOKIES in Miami tonight.
Doesn't look it in this picture but Hokie Nation is representing
Boston College was like this, too (the stadium probably isn't even half that big!)
How can you be JasoninArlington if you're in Miami?
JASONinMIAMI this weekend
That's outta whack!
I am actually really excited about a game foe the first time in a few years, let's bring Kiffin to da U!
Lets get Manny Diaz fired y'all.
Watching the next-VT-head-coach bowl, and just based on score it looks like Napier>Freeze.
I was not blown away by Napier and his team but Freeze was not impressive at all.
The Louisiana defense was fantastic. The offense didn't put up huge yardage because they had 5 or 6 turnovers and gave the O a short field all night. Ran right over Liberty.
Maybe both coaches were distracted all week fielding calls from Whit's office.
The one thing I noticed that I did not like was the use of heavy link chain as a reward for a good defensive play - smacks too much of the obnoxious Miami chain.
Now we need Marshall and Louisiana to play in the final to pick our new coach.
I wish I was there. Had 2 free tickets if I wanted them but have too much going on to spend a day out of town right now. Killing me!
At least the beer is cheaper on the couch I guess
JC Price confirms that Corn will be calling the plays on O and the same for Ham on D
Really interested to see if Cornelson fails harder without Fuente holding his hand or maybe he'll soar without the anchor. Either way, I hope a journalist has the stones to ask about predetermined throws/handoffs
VT's minuscule chance at the Costal title seems gone (Pitt just went up 48 to 38 over Virginia) with only 1:47 left in the game.
NTL, the team still has something to play for - JC Price, beating the hated hurricanes, to mention only two. Let's go
Pitt will have the better record; however, when the ACC determines that Kenny Pickett is actually in his tenth year, Pitt will be disqualified. /s
It's officially gone. Just have fun and get play loose.
We'll be decorating soon
Just saw Tre warming up on the field, so the long trip down was successful.
History will be made tonight.
JC PRICE, I AM READY FOR YOU TO HURT ME. IT'S OKAY TO HURT ME BECAUSE YOUR NAME ISN'T JUSTIN FUENTE.
JC Price looks like a deer in headlights in that clip! Here's hoping the players make it easy for him
Somebody get those guys some raincoats.
"Let me tell you who loves Miami right now and he loves them right back." Excuse me?
JC Price is the first former Hokie to be the head coach for Virginia Tech since Frank Beamer. (my Captain Obvious contribution.)
It worked last week so...
what the hell show us the game not the booth!
Lol, I was like I don't want to see Wes Durham's gut all night.
I have no idea what is going on right now.
Neither does VT so far.
Gotta love the high quality ACC Network coverage. Missed the first play completely, then the 2nd play gets replay review and they don't even show it
Was more important to see some consumer products.
ACC network is bush league.
Great start by the broadcast team......🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
Welp...if the question was if Corn was being held back by Fuente.
Think the answer is pretty clear...
Nope, he's just a terrible O.C.
Hey, they finally showed the second play.
How the fuck does that even get stopped for review??
I think the broadcast crew needed to call a timeout there.
Why run that?
It wasn't close.
And then not take the slide. Ugh
Not good coverage on that punt
No, I'd say not.
We were lucky he was shirt tackled.
or on that pass
I think that was a great throw, bit of a pushoff.
How has waller regressed so much
Well, Miami made that look easy. Ugh
The defense was shredded on that series.
Yeah that was way too easy. Not a great start.
Mental note: don't drop Barno in coverage... geez. Know your personnel!
The way he covered the flat makes me think he was supposed to have help over the top
I can't imagine a coverage designed to have the DE cover a receiver to the back of the end zone.
I'm not sure what Hamilton was thinking on any of those play calls that drive
That play was so odd. He dropped in coverage and then went forward to defend .... nobody.
Dropping DEs in coverage is usually a recipe for a bad time.
Well then.... this is an underwhelming start....
I love Hamilton as a Hokie but I can't see him being retained with the next coach. Our defense is just not good with the fundamentals under him.
Same. Great Hokie, but not ready to be a DC.
Not good Bob...not good
Anemic 1st drive...check.
Poor Punt coverage...check.
Letting Miami's 2 biggest weapons abuse you on their first drive...check.
Just ready for this season to be over at this point.
So glad I didn't root for UVa.
5 offensive plays in, and i'm not sure that JC said anything to Corn...
Holy cow - Blumrick is alive!
I seriously thought he was done for the year.
Connor Blumrick is gonna fight?
CONNOR BLUMRICK IS GONNA FIGHT!
Is this a Dragon-esque autocorrect?
Did BB get hurt taking his big hit on the first drive?
edit-guess not, he's back in
he was pretty slow getting up after that 3rd down play. Given his history I wouldn't be surprised.
I thought Blumrick's knee died?
It got better
I honestly have no idea what to expect from our backfield tonight after that - positive or negative. I'm 100% guessing, and I'm sure Miami is too.
I like this offense. It's working right now
Are we reading the defenders or are calls just working out tonight?
QB runs and Miami trying to cheat. What's old is new again.
Are we trying a 2 QB system tonight....?
Nothing to lose baby.
So..... Tahj making an appearance?
I'm pretty sure BB actually made a read and kept on that big read option.
Nice drive going . Now punch it in
At least we got some points
Word. It's still early, take the 3.
Screens not fooling anybody
Try harder, Brad
Playcall was fine. Two blockers whiffed on the only LB over there and he made the tackle. If they block him it was a 1st down and lossibly a TD
How the F does Turner only have 2 TDs on the season?
you know who our OC is, right?
BB looking wobbly
BB doesn't look right...
BB really can't throw, huh? So stupid running for four on third and seven.
The shutout streak officially continues post-Fuente
Can we please not destroy Burmeister's body in the first quarter tonight?
Will we see a third QB tonight?
BB walking a bit sideways.
I'm watching on ACC network (DirecTV channel 612). The sound is horrible. Anyone else experiencing the same?
Gotta give credit to Price. We got the ball down the field and points on the board.
Now, if only the defense will take the field this series.
I'd just like to see a coverage team....
Jeez. I didn't expect that the second would be as bad as the first.
Did I see a QB make an audible or call at the line?
Our special teams are not standing up to our tradition.
coverage team slipping and sliding all over the place
When we kick Corny out of Blacksburg, make sure James Shibest is with him.
Why are Hokies falling like bowling pins on the kicking coverage?
It's a wet field, maybe they just need to slow down
God, the D looks slow
They're gonna run Daley...
Roddy Jones sounds elated about the potential for targeting here
I hate targeting.
So do guys with concussive brain injuries.
Agreed. CTE sucks but it's a workplace hazard when you put the pads on. The targeting rules are archaic and draconian - ever since targeting has been enforced, it's been poorly applied half the time. And it's undoubtedly led to the decline in solid tackling in football.
This targeting looks worse than the one in the UVa game.
You lose good players for the duration of the game on one play.
I'm not sure how many more mistakes we could make.
Was hoping JC would maybe breathe some life in this team, but we look like a mess.
Too much wrong to fix.
Edit: I retract and apologize for the below. I'm sorry.
Jesus fuck this team is garbage. I think I'm going to find something worthwhile to do with the next three hours. So sick of being an indisputably trash team. 😡😡🤬🤬🤬
Tre turner and tayvion robinson going to the locker room to change cleats/ spikes. Field conditions suck
Miami seems ok.
I would expect so, since they know their own field better than our guys do.
Seems like the kick coverage team has a poor set of spikes on too.
Did the staff not anticipate a soggy field? Sounds like it has been raining in Miami for days.
We may really miss Daily before the end of this game
Wow. We play this terribly on defense next week, Armstrong is gonna throw for 600 on us.
Justin Hamilton isn't exactly shining in his post Fuente tryout right now
They've had a lot of wide open receivers so far.
Plus the ball is coming out pretty quickly so no time for a pass rush
Not really. Enough time for the receiver to get 30 yards downfield. No pass rush and they're just picking on Walker with Rambo
Hope the equipment team brought the longest metal studs possible, because we need them.
This defense looks lost.
defenseEntire Team looks lost.
How does a CB line up Offsides???
Stupid penalty by Dax
Going downhill really fast
Lol this team doesn't give a shit anymore
I don't know about all that, but special teams and the defense has been pretty lost out there.
The QBs are running pretty hard.
Boy, this is um.... I don't even know what.
Edit: I retract and apologize for the below. I'm sorry.
I would 1000% prefer if we just forfeit at this point. This is a terrible team, and will be a terrible team for years.
Just turn it off then
Way ahead of you. Have fun.
I shouldn't have said this, I'm sorry.
I'm incredibly proud of this team tonight.
Holy fucking shit, guys
Let's just add roughing the kicker on too....
Whew. In the words of Emmett Smith, we are about to get blowed out.
i go away for 5 minutes to make popcorn and this place falls apart....
replace pizza with popcorn
You have to have the popcorn before the game, CMY style.
Oof, just checked and Brennan Armstrong threw for 487 tonight against Pitt. Clearly no rust and no apparent issues with his ribs.
Could be really bad next week if the defense plays like this.
Yeah, dude looked like nothing ever happened and he just went to spend time with Peyton freakin Manning
Good slide, BB
We are going to live and die by the QB run, I guess. Hope BB doesn't die.
Is Blumrick just a WR wearing a QB's # while playing RB?
Makes you wonder why the coaching staff having only BB and Knox decided to only bring in a running "qb" over the offseason. Clown show.
We'll be needing BB next week.
Also, a defense.
I don't know if anything's really gonna help next week
At least nobody is playing for anything serious.
A bowl game, maybe. But do we really want to see more of this?
every pass leaving BB's hand...
And BB floats a pass to Tre that is in no way close to being a first. Can Bullock be any worse?
Unfortunately, probably yes
might as well play him, he has 4 games, we have 2, maybe 3 left
We have 2. I love Hokie football, but there's no way that, with this game's trajectory and LOLUVA looking like they did today, we win one of these two.
I feel like the players are checking out. We needed a good start in this game and clearly didn't get it.
Burmeister is a gamer and tough as hell but his arm is a liability at this point.
We may need Price to actually play.
This made me laugh out loud. Needed that
That throw went 10 yards and was wobbling all over the place. We really are going to have to try and win the game running only.
Well, if we had as many Offensive yards as Penalty Yards, we would be in good shape at this point.
So far the offense looks bit weird, don't mind tempo but that is gonna have to stop if the defense keeps getting worked
anyone else getting Gotham Hammered tonight just to get through this game?
Thinking about the "getting hammered " part
I already told my wife she's going to need to get up with the kids in the morning.
Getting turnt like batman.
That looks like Robitussin. Pass the bottle, Batman
Sigh... The next coach is going to have so much work to do. It is going to take years to fix Corny's screw job.
Whit let it get this bad
What happened to the creative playcalling we used last week?
I mean, Blackshear had the best game of his career last week. Has 1 touch/target thus far.
What happened to our defense?
Equally terrible. But doesn't look like they're doing anything different schematically. Offense looks like a different team.
So we are pretty much just outclassed in talent and speed......
I mean we got worked by Syracuse, BC and Pitt this year. We've lost to ODU and Liberty in this regime. Talent is a piece, but it's more than that. Schematically. Tactically. Philosophically. It's rotten.
They called pass interference on us but no holding on their offensive line!!!!
Zero pass rush and secondary is getting worked.
This is embarrassing
This defense just looks so lost.
No pressure at all.
But one thing the refs aren't calling at all is HOLDING.
They are really attacking Waller so far and it is *not* going well for him.
waller is getting destroyed
Glad we're battling the Canes and the stripes tonight.
DB's and Safety's look like FCS players out here.
Waller is getting abused big time and he's struggling
The entire secondary
Waller should stop talking trash every chance he gets and actually cover Rambo.
Conner's play sucks...
He's lost all confidence and swagger...checked out. It's not helping at all.
I'm getting the feeling that next Saturday is going to be very bad.
Waller can't cover the ground with a blanket.
Massive rebuild job for the next coach. The disparity in talent is very apparent.
We are more talented than Duke and GT and that might be it
We are not more talented than GT.
It looks like we have given up. Don't these guys know if they look like crap they won't do any good in the transfer portal next year?? They should play and put a good show on the resume.
bye bye Hilgart
Fucking this-so much
Bets on halftime score?
I'm going with 28-6
Good night yall
Yeah...we're not a good team. Sucks to say it. Soft, Stupid, undisciplined...funny thing is most of these players are 4stars. Either they were overrated or poorly developed.
G - Soft
R - Stupid
I - undisciplined
Well, we'll see how this next offensive series goes for us, but if we don't score I'm out. Defense is lost and doesn't know what they're doing, special teams has let two monster kick returns go, and the offense is...a CornFu offense.
Just the corn now...
These guys have just checked out. The season is functionally over.
This team seriously lacks talent. And whats worse is that we don't have speed or strength either.
Be prepared for a ground up type of rebuild folks.
I love our players because they are Hokies, but....we just don't have the horses. The damage Fuente and co. did to this program is going to last a few years.
D is getting shredded, gonna be a long night fellas
at this rate, ugly ass brennan is gonna hit over 500 yards against this so called "defense" next week. good lord this is horrendous
Thank God they're not playing to get into the ACC Championship.
would be the most lopsided acc championship play in game ever
the roster, culture, demeanor, personality, etc. of this team is too far gone to flip a switch following a simple HC change. this is going to take a couple years, folks.
Luckily the portal can expedite this process
63-10? Is this going to be areality? Or will Diaz show class?
Diaz is fighting for his own job. Doubt he lets off the gas.
"Diaz" and "class" do not belong in the same sentence.
You must not spend much time in Florida- there is and never will be anything classy about Miami. City, school, teams. Nothing.
Fo real lol. Miami is about as classy as a West Virginia strip club.
I had no idea the level of pain that is provided by bourbon through the nose..... Thank you for giving me a new piece of knowledge tonight.
Well the defense looks completely out matched tonight this and next week could be ugly
I know Ryan Smith has gotten lots of love, but both Waller and Strong have taken huge steps backwards this year...having trouble seeing the confidence in him.
It's not bad enough to have to watch crappy football, we have to watch interviews with old Miami players?
Oof that looked like a Burmeister concussion. Still playing though
Is this our attempt to keep from getting two head coaches fired in two weeks?
At least the offense hasn't given up.
It's wet, our QB has a lame arm, and Miami is the worst tackling team in FCS.
So naturally, we are relying on BB dropback passing all night long.
that ball by Blumrick was an absolute wounded duck
you have managed to offend wounded ducks
Well I guess we see why Blumrick doesn't throw
No wonder Blumrick only runs the ball. Woof!
I honestly hope Fu doesn't get another coaching job anywhere again. The shape he has left our program in is downright malfeasance.
Unless its UVA, Miami, or Pitt.
incognito program killa fuente
How can our qbs not complete screen passes?
Because Fu and Corny are the QB whisperers.
...just imagine how talented Andy Dalton and Paxton Lynch were to overcome that coaching.
BB is still chucking down the field .. even if being inconsistent
Is Blumrick unable to throw any forward pass?
About as well as I can.
He was a 5th string QB at A&M for a reason
He hit him right in the hands. Cameraman has to pull that in.
I'm seeing some of the stuff the coaches liked about Burmeister.
BIG PLAY TRE!!!!!
Even if they overturn the call, it was an incredible effort
Turner just did WHAT
BIG PLAY TRE!!!!
Looks like 6 to me... the ref was RIGHT THERE and made the call for a TD.
excuse me - TWO REFS were right there and made a TD call.
So glad he's wearing the 25
BIG PLAY TRE! NEVER gives up
We just ignoring the PI on that too? C'mon Refs.
Probably gonna be overturned but fantastic effort by Tre
Edit: welp nevermind
You can't see the ball in any of those replays.
Tre deserves that catch.
VT QBs screen passes: hysterically bad, but I'm not laughing
Big Play Tre: hysterically amazing catch and I am laughing and shaking my head in disbelief
*edit: Tre should be one of every Hokies all time favorite players
Is it nerves?
Roddy Jones is seriously negative towards VT tonight
jumping for joy over the targeting and now discounting this catch
Why should we expect anything else?
In my backyard, that is a TD
You are the man, Tre.
If that's a catch, that's the best catch you'll see all damn year. That's absolutely fucking insane right there.
I wonder what % of our goal-to-go plays are run into the boundary side of the field. So fucking frustrating.
Great catch by Tre to bail us out!
i'd wager to say its a lot closer to 100% than not
It was a catch
3 & 25 haven't given up-FUCK MIAMI
VT still alive in this game, but they need to show some signs of defense.
Seems like Tre could drive back to Blacksburg before the defense shows up.
What a catch by tre
Lol Hamilton can go, too
Wow! Waller getting worked over beyond belief
this might be our worst defensive performance ever
Good thing miami respects our secondary.
Well that didn't take long for them to respond
Waller burned again
Dude is checked out. Injured maybe?
WRs wide open all day. Unreal.
Should have been holding, but, whatever.
Defensive holding might be the best strategy for our secondary right now... At least it'd take Miami longer to score.
Ready for a clean slate. I hope JHam is successful elsewhere. Good guy, but not ready for this stage.
With no pass rush, this will contact night
what happened to waller
what the hell??? i get up again the the U is celebrating... what happened this time???
receiver ran right past Waller
1 play for a TD
Waller is trash tonight..does he realize this night will be on his draft tape lol
This is what football looks like when you don't call holding.
Where's the defense?
I think you have to bench him or switch assignments or something.
Yikes... At this rate, nobody is going to be retained. If this is a job interview for everybody they are not going to be here next year. The transfer portal is going to be our best friend and enemy this offseason.
I can comfortably say J Ham will not be retained.
Geez... at this point the only person I would consider keeping from this current staff is JC.
Armstrong is going to set every single game passing record against us next week.
Goddamn it. You had to remind us
Safety play has been horrid so far but waller is getting picked on and he's supposed to be our too corner
So is Yellowstone good? Might start watching it right now.
You could probably binge watch it during this game.
It's a slow burn to start, but stick with it, it gets really good.
I watched the first 15 minutes at half and definitely am intrigued.
We're gonna need more than 5 yd passes if we want to take the lead.
*Corn being given 2 good running backs and designing a scheme around running 2 qbs instead.
Can't blame corn when the defense is pretty terrible.
Corn's offense is actually putting points on the board.
Just not as fast as the defense is giving them away.
One touchdown isn't really putting pts in the board.
The defense is still in Blacksburg lmao
JHam..... good thing has not the interim... lmao mans got a full plate as is
Is there another Fuller is the works...soon
Let's hire Fuente again at halftime just so we can fire him again at the end of the game and leave him on the tarmac.
Waller and Peebles both let the receiver get by them. Seems like one of them should stay behind the receiver.
It was Conner...they both stood flatfooted....pretty inexplicable
What the actual fuck? I went to the bathroom after the kickoff and they've already scored? At least the offense is trying, what the hell is the defense doing?
good thing we have a QB who has big play throwing ability to bring us back and go shot for shot with these losers
Another Big Play TRE
Tre ballin' out... he may have just knocked himself out of the game.
wow that shouldn't have been thrown but big play Tre strikes again!
Tre's doing everything he can
We haven't allowed a 300 yard passer all year and Waller is fixin to do just that by himself in the first half🤦♂️
Not by himself, no one does on defense is doing anything to help.
I haven't been able to say this all year.
But tonight, effort-wise, the offense is outpacing the defense.
Yeah, I try to block the Garrett Schrader game out of my memory too.
I hope Tre is ok...
One of the only guys who looks focused and ready today.
Can ACCN quit it with the flashing strobe light commercials?
I'm not leaving here until I see a spurtle commercial
The strobe on TAC light disabling an intruder is hilarious 😂
Need to get one to shine in Miami QB's face. Might be our best defense.
Someone get Waller a TacLight so he can see the field properly
Old enough to remember when Waller was getting a pick per game and on the way to an all-ACC year.
If he's that banged up, get his ass out of the game.
If he's not, get his head out of his ass. He's killing us.
nice catch, Jones!
The way he bounced off the defender though... get that man a few plates!
Um... horse collar?
I thought so too but in the replay it looked like the other hand was around the front which I think takes it out of the horse collar category.
Burmeister is gonna get a WR killed
Glad I'm not the only one. Seems a bit high
Great catch by Jones. Way to introduce yourself to the fans.
that was 6 if BB can make that throw to Gallo
How do you miss that?????
we need a new QB next year
We need a whole new QB room next year
Burmeister isn't going to last another 2 quarters.
2 quarters? He may not be functional 2 plays from now.
Is that the first blitz?
If BB gets one more ding he's going to be done for the night... with Blumrick unable to make a completion that means we're going to get a half of Knox to try and do something
Love Burmeister for his effort but he has no business as a P5 QB.
I think it's more playing right now as banged up and mind f-Ed as he is
FUCK! I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF HAVING A QB WHO CAN'T THROW THE GODDAMNED BALL!
But sister is just so bad. His passing skills are like HS bad.
Weird auto correct. Burmeister.
But Sister = Pussy Touchdowns
The former is from WV?
I appreciate your autocorrect.
That's a new autocorrect nickname
Upvote for the autocorrect
God damnit that's a first if he trusts his legs and goes outside there.
Amazingly, we're still in this game.
But the defense would have to show up at some point.
Well, they may just have. Hope my comment looks stupid later, but hard to see out O catching up, much less keeping pace.
You want Cornelson to get him killed before the new coach comes in???
We should try the slip-kick onside recovery. Worked out for Purdue....
BB3's passing is painful
these are some bush league camera angles... and Waller again...
GD that was an easy 6 if he can just catch the ball
It's an ACC Network production. What do you expect.
We needed that INT .... It went right through his hands
Thank God for the Tropical Storm conditions. They may actually give our D a chance to get a stop.
Artis makes an appearance.
Wallers best play of the night and we cant even get a camera shot of it....🤦♂️
For God's sake!!!!!!
Defense got a stop.
This rain storm may be our best defensive adjustment.
sweet! thanks for the free yards!
I didn't know you could tackle the punt return before he caught the ball? Haha
The rain is our only hope, forcing them to run
Clearly, the defender beat the ball there.
There's no "half second" rule.
Blumrick is a pinball out there that keeps rolling forward
This field is terrible.
Honestly if miami was smart, they'd just run go routes until we figured out what they were doing. They've got the speed to burn us and it wouldn't mean losing their footing....
Why put BB back in...?
It's legit raining right now.
We tend to like the rain, right?
Miami didn't think this one out...
Maybe they did and it's a very creative and cryptic way of being open and honest about their lifestyle
Maybe they had some Bojangles before the game
Existence is pain.
BB is so bad y'all, it's like unbearable.
Corn and Fu both played QB at a high level- But somehow we lose the best QB on our roster to TN and are stuck with inconsistency. That will be their legacy
this would be a great time for a turnover.
Use Miami's aggressiveness against them.
Edit: yeah, they figured that out.
Lol..Manny mercifully taking a knee
umm.... Did Fuente EVER pull the team aside like that before going in to the locker room at the half?
Only every single time
pretty sure he did it every game
Holy shit. Two knees with 1+ minutes left.
Horse on a Treadmill I believe they just said they don't keep score by time of possession on the broadcast. Any input?
I'll say this, van dyke got some deep game. Add that to the Christmas list.
I know it gets old seeing HH stats; but he's 13 of 16 for 164 yds and 2 tds in the second quarter. Edit to correct attempts to 16.
Is there really a need for updates at this point?
you're right; but I just like to see HH doing well. Wish he was doing it for us.
Probably should post these in the other games thread. There does seem to be a lot of interest in his career.
I think it's a good reminder for all the people who supported the staff way longer than a reasonable amount
Tre Turner our for the rest of the game "out of an abundance of caution" (per radio guys)
He's proved all that he needed to.
Could have easily shut it down for the rest of the year after GT.
Terrible, drive all the way down just to play a half before going out.
It's a good call though. Getting totally soaked in rain like this would only make his respiratory issue worse.
We outshined Miami 238-236 and are down 15 (including they only have 1 rushing yard). That makes no sense.
Because waller kept getting burned
Their special teams yardage and us settling for multiple field goals
kick coverage showed up.
Nice play byvWaller finally
I'm seeing signs of defense out there.
Decent coverage on the kick off and the defense looks like it is doing a bit better getting a three and out. is there hope?
The D is playing sharper, better adjustments, thanks JHam
Kinda wonder if it was something simple like longer spikes
Got a stop. Yes!
Whatever they did on defense at halftime is reaping dividends so far.
Seriously get BB out of there
Who is 55? You had one job,
braxton is horrendous
Lost fumble. Unblocked defender.
He should have been blocked. 55 pulled to help out the TE and he apparently forgot what he was supposed to do.
Whoo, Gallo got BURNED
He was supposed to have help, 55 pulled and then had a massive brain fart.
I saw that on the replay. Talk about a "fuck, what was I doing again?" moment....
And.....now time for offense to shit the bed some more
Bang, shot right in our own foot..ugh
Why in the world are we dropping back to pass? Come on, you have BB who can barely throw as it is and dropping back to pass in a driving rain storm.
I hate that turn over chain
Class-less as Miami.
How did I think this team was good two months ago....#sad
Any chance Tahj rode down with Tre? Might as well.
I feel like other than the year where we switched to Hooker mid season, we consistently regressed as the year went on under Fu
2016 & 2017 were pretty consistent, too.
We've definitely started off strong a lot.
If CB could only complete a 5 yard pass.
Cornelson will not be missed why hell are we throwing so much run the damn ball stop being cute
Is Waller even in?
do we have a GA with any eligibility left that could play QB?
This team is so bad at so many fundamental parts of the game.
Defense came out to play this half.
To escape that only giving up three was exceptional.
They're fired up, at least
There just wasn't enough room for Waller to get best deep...
I haven't been seeing 2 on defense since halftime.
You miss the tackle for loss on the first series after half.
To give the defense and JHam credit, they have done pretty decent to start the second half.
Note: I think it takes experience to make game plan changes at half time and even more while the game is in play.
Absolutely incredible to see Blumrick running like this tonight. I was convinced he had a major knee injury (torn ACL level) earlier in the season.
Look at the big brain on Brad!!!
It's almost like Running the ball makes so much more sense in a torrential rain storm.
Edit: well not when you make it completely predictable and slow-developing
Blumrick has a great fake handoff.
I stand corrected.
What a drive.
Kalab Smith TD on a pass from Blumrick?????
Who is this team that came out in the 2nd half? I like it a lot better than the 1st half
That's what is sad here...this isn't a good Miami team.
Had we shown any pulse in the first 25 minutes on D, we would be right in this game.
our receivers have been making plays all game
Texas Jesus runnin like a deer and throwin for 6. What is this???
The ghost of Frank Solich is running the playbook now
Wow, Blumrick passed for a TD!
That was easily top-5 tightest spiral throw by any an this year.
Beating a dead horse, but a pick six from Waller earlier would've been nice.
Unaffiliated guy who is watching his first Tech game
"Is the roll out wide run your only play?"
Lol... Brad Cornelson, never change
Blumrick throw'd a ball good??? Fantastic!
If we win the QBs owe the WRs a beer. The receivers are balling out today.
Damn straight JC.
Finally some fucking nuts!!!!
who's nuts......jcs nutssss biatches!!! fu prob wouldve called a to right before romo kicked it
No fucking shit we got that!!
ONSIDE KICK RECOVERY!!
That must have been one helluva halftime session
finally some post-halftime adjustments!
OK, that was a gutsy assed call.
An onside kick worked for us! Special teams are still alive for us
Price is pulling out all of the tricks. I love it.
DO IT! Nothing to lose boys, it's rugby now!
Love the point in the wrong direction by 56 there!
Gutsy call by JC. Let's go!!!!
Holy shit that was awesome
KEANDRE KO FOR HEISMAN
Now they're stacking the box.
Unfortunately, Blumrick is running out of moves.
EDIT: This didn't age well. I guess he had more that we realized.
Amazing what pressure does
That was actually a good screen call...our OL just ran right past defenders...ugh
OH MY GOODNESS HOW
are you fucking serious wow!!!!!!!!!!
HOLY SHIT WHAT A CATCH!
Lol holy shit
Oh my god what a catch
WHAT A CATCH!!!
But how did Blumrick and Lofton pull that off?
What a catch by Lofton. Our wide receivers are balling tonight
The receivers are fighting hard
OH MY GOD I did not expect that
Is Texas Jesus a decent QB???
What a throw by Blumrick and catch by Lofton!!'
Personal foul at the end there.
OMG we're back in this
Wow, we have clawed our way back into this game!
What a second half !!
Blumrick's confidence seems to be skyrocketing
We got us a football game ladies and gents!
Who knew Blumrick was our best QB
None of us, that's for goddamn sure.
Hokie football is fun again!
Do you live in Colorado?
Not sure why this got down voted. Just wondering if we knew each other. Some of you are too fucking sensitive.
Most likely just a fat finger downvote. No need to take it personally.
Haha, not taking it personally but three times in a row is not just a fat finger. Its just stupid childish bullshit.
Oh my god we're in this game..
Whatever was said at halftime was LEGIT
Amazing what happens when you have the stones to actually roll the dice sometimes
And this is why Fuente is gone.
This! And also we barely play Lofton all year and he can ball. I know Blumrick was hurt a good bit but wow he can actually throw a little if you let him!
Is this corney's interview tape.
Did Fu hold Corny back? /s
oh he had lofton for the 2
Blumrick with 2 TD passes. What the fuck is happening?!
No way miami could have prep'd for Blumrick as a passing QB
This is what it looks like when a QB takes what's available.
Regardless of the two point conversion, I'm so proud of these guys coming out guns blazing in the second half.
Would be so happy for them and JC if they can pull this off!
I think I saw fireman celebrating that td!!
Lofton and Jones have both made huge plays..and we've barely utilized either of them all year.
What is happening?! Let's go boys!
Also Blumrick has the dirtiest jersey on the team
That's a good sign of a QB that leads by example. Not saying that BB doesn't give it his all. Just a statement
At this point, I can't help but laugh. It's beautiful.
Blumrick for Heisman
Remind me why Lofton didn't play more the rest of the year?
He probably fumbled once in practice.
Nature is healing
I feel a turnover coming
Three man rush on third and ten. Come on J Ham.
And soft zone. Way too easy
coming back though for holding
About goddamn time they called it!
Thats' coming back.
Tackling looked like keystone cops out there.
Finally called holding because it was a tackle.
The hold was the only tackle that occurred on that play.
The whole spring football season needs to be nothing but tackling drills.
Our secondary is weak sauce
We need this rain to continue.
This team has no quit in them.
What a quarter of football
This ID Police thing is hilarious. I need to know how many people purchased this thing.
Am I actually excited about the 4th quarter? What is going on right now???
Well I guess we can put the stupid rumors that Whit is going to go to Lynchburg to interview Napier today to bed.
Could have done that earlier and hopped on a jet this afternoon.
absolutely....for a dude that doesnt show his cards...do you think he wouldnt show up to this game? hes not trying to prove any rumors true
Teams usually travel Thursday evening Friday morning so he had plenty of time.
What the hell? So apparently we play better in the rain
Guess that TV shot answered my question of whether Whit was in Miami or trying to schmooze Napier in VA
wow thats a bad spot
Oh boy that's gonna be close
That's an awful spot! Please challenge it
Wtf was with that spot?
