Hokies!

Maybe I'll see some of you beautiful bastards there. MAKING MY WAY TO BLACKSBURG FOR MY FIRST EVER GAME AT LANE!!

Congratulations! Great night for a 1st time visit

It should be a great atmosphere. Pack appropriately it might be a little cool for a September game last time I checked forecast.

my first ever game in lane was when we trounced top-10 Clemson in 2006. First games are the best. This is a good omen...we're going to win tonight. Thank you Reesejenks520!!

Onward and upward

Mine was Georgia Tech 2012 Journell game winning field goal

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

Mine was 98 Temple. Not a great start.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Mine was 95 Miami

1990 Bowling Green.

Lane was crazy! /s

Also Bowling Green but 2012

uva - the taint of the ACC

you picked a hell of game for your first VT game with 95 Miami

I had to drive up to NOVA so I left at halftime of that game. As far as I'm concerned, if I didn't see us lose, we didn't lose.

Ring Design Chair

Syracuse 2001 - Grant Noel played the opposite of good and we let Cuse run back a punt for a TD. Not ideal.

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

Mine was 2004 Western Michigan 63-0

Proud Hokie since 2004.

1982 Miami Hurricanes. 14-8 Defensive struggle.

Got to see that as a little kid. That was the team that had QBs on the roster named Jim Kelly, Vinny Testaverde AND a guy named Mark Richt

This deserves its own thread.

1995 Boston College, freshman year

Mine was vs Pitt in '96

This is my first as well...my freshman year.

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

The three foot orange ones? I got one of those when my friends parents took us to at VT game in the late 70's. I don't think my parents were happy when I brought that thing home and it quickly disappeared.

Have a nice, obscure 1st game in Lane.

VT-Akron 1991.

It's about time.

I'm expecting you to pull off a win, dammit.

Make some noise. Have fun!

Mine was 2002 Pittsburgh. FML.

WOOOOOO REEEEEEEESE

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

Holy shit, what a game to end up at for your first - that's so awesome. You're gonna be our good luck charm!

First ever game for me was 2002 vs. Ark State. Was a typical early season matchup. You've picked a helluva game to be your inaugural one!

Have you entered your PICK 6 on CBSSports yet? Click Here!

That was my second game. First was Western Michigan the year before. Both were Hokie Kids Club games. First big game was USC at FedEx and we had second row 50 yard line seats that I still don't know how my dad got. Best guess is former Redskins DE Bill Brundige was his boss at the time.

My first ever VT game was "The '83 Squeaker" at UVa, but my first game at Lane was...wait for it...the VT-WVU game in 1986. Slugfest that the defense kept us in the whole way, sound familiar?

First game in Lane was 85... as an MV. I was the eastern shore when we ran onto the field and made the state outline :)

YES!!!!!!

After this morning, I will take no prisoners, show no mercy. I want blood.

The only mountaineering tonight will be over a mountain of skulls formerly belonging to practitioners of consanguineous marriage.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

consanguineous

context tells me roughly what this means....but I've never seen this word before (probably a good thing, tbh)

Onward and upward

Con- = with/together

sanguine = blood

This is great, but really makes it is the audio of the crowd reaction.

Football Thursday night,
Hokies will smash Mountaineers.
Cousin fuckers cry.

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

Well alright, if you say so!

FTFY

I'm guessing the Bourbon took over about 3/4s through this one

Onward and upward

Honestly 'neers had too many E's and I'm not creative enough for all that. I was obviously grasping at straws towards the end.

AME tonight?

They had maroon helmets in practice some sharp eyed folks said. I'm hoping for the '99 throwback uni AME

VB born, class of '14

It is interesting that they haven't announced the uniform combo yet.

Doesn't seem like the Pry staff has uni reveals before kickoff (so far). I can't recall one through the first three games. Also keep in mind Pry came from Penn State that seems to rarely vary their uniforms.

I thought they revealed last week's unis on Friday

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

I have an email from earlier this week that said it was Hokie Effect AND throwbacks tonight...

I was doing fine keeping focus on work this morning, but as it's inching closer to noon, I'm starting to REEEEALLY struggle. Is it time for bourbon yet??

Damn work getting in the way of bloody mary and bourbon time!

I love the tickle of Dickel in my belly

Pork butt is in the smoker.
Cole slaw is getting happy.
Beer is in fridge.

It's gameday, and I'm ready to rock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AND WVU hate high high high.
Grew up with a neighbor across the street that had season tix along with a WVU mailbox. Annoy a$$. My dad went to Marshall. So I've hated WVU for a long long time.

Ready to see the Hokies roll in the Coal Bowl!!

Posted here, just for the Thursday game day vibe. Entrance from 11/8/2012 entrance, FSU game. The video between the "Let's Go Hokies" chant and the first notes of Sandman was superb. The best part is right before the last narrator line in the stadium video, the stadium goes silent. Chills. Hope we have something extra planned for tonight.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

This remains my favorite game as a student, the energy was electric all day

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

We do have Mutts wearing maroon and orange overalls, so that's a start.

when you enter Morgantown......

Can't wait to see the level of hype on the broadcast tonight...got a feeling the Terrordome is gonna feel pretty special this evening.

East Tennessee State, 1980 was my first game in Lane. Interestingly, the last game in Lane that season (which I also attended) was against WVU.

"You punish the opponent, so when they leave here THEY KNOW WHAT HIT 'EM, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME?!?"
