Let's get it baby

How many TKPers are up here today? Walking around the parking lots and the official tailgates, I wouldn't be surprised if we out number Cincinnati 80-20.

There's only 100 people there? That's not a good look.

There might be that many people in the port-o-potty line near my car right now.

They should have brought more than one, with a crowd that size.

Who knew all 100 would need to go at the same time though?

It's early. It'll fill up.

Thanks. There have been rumblings on the board about his status for next season. Didn't know if that had anything to do with it.

I got off work at 6am and got stuck in a mother fucking snow drift until 8. Please god let us win and verify that that you aren't just fucking with me.

Why the hell is the watch espn feed in Spanish? Doing this for anyone else?

Initially I was only seeing Spanish but it would not play so I restarted my Roku and the English feed showed up.

Yeah I just backed out and it changed to English

Nice up the gut run by Peoples for the first down.

Good start with a mix of runs and passes

We always start off good. It's just when the defense adjusts and we dont..

I am liking that we have gone aggressively at their corners. I think we have an advantage there.

Come on D!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

ok let's go defense.

wait, they have a dual threat qb????? thats not good for us.....

Is Caleb Farley out?

Well, I guess we'll read the review from French highlighting how Dax isn't good in coverage again.

Is it basketball season yet?

Well shit...

Our D is just all or nothing.

We put the K in Kwality

Ugh

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

Perfect play call against the blitz there

Dax bit hard on the option route. Good play call.

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

Our secondary is not fighting through blocks today.

Today?

Is it basketball season yet?

well that was too easy

Well that was a an aggressive blitz...which is exactly what they wanted..

Easy TD..maybe try to mask the Blitz a bit next time?

That TD didn't have anything to do with the blitz. Dax got beat, thats all.

Is it basketball season yet?

Dax was the only guy within 15 yards of the RB..which was a direct result of the Blitz

We were in man free (i think) on the back end and Dax was responsible for the RB. He just got beat.

Is it basketball season yet?

Has rivers been held out from his injury in the GT game? I know Dax has been pretty beast but has Rivers gotten much play or has Dax replaced him on the depth chart?

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

I think Dax has taken over, but I also think Rivers is still gimpy. He hasn't been in the rotation.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Our DBs need a long lesson in getting off blocks

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

Yikes. Love Dax but he is playing out of position. He doesn't have the speed to cover out in space.

Yeah, I don't know if Bud just likes Ashby more at Mike right now or what, but Dax is not a backer.

Getting out coached all ready.

Indecisiveness from Willis on that 3rd down.

Man, cant see the chains and the LOS animations don't seem to be working. First world problems

Yeah. This is frustrating and something I don't recal having to deal with over the past couple of years watching any game.

Here comes the 3 in outs for us and 88 yard bomb TD's for them

I can hear some "Let's go Hokies" cheers in the background.

Thx. Missed it.

Oh no! We are going to see a back up QB today.

Is it basketball season yet?

During the last Military Bowl, the Cincinnati qb went down and it worked out pretty well for us.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Oh God, a backup. We're screwed.

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

How was that not grounding?

Outside the tackle box and a rb in the area

VB born, class of '14

It wasn't beyond the line scrimmage so the tackle box doesn't matter. It was quite a few yards away from the rb.

It's also kinda hard to get anything on your throw when you have a 300-lb DT pulling your leg the other way.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Not wishing the guy to be hurt but the QB going done might be just what our D needs.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Or maybe not.

The only thing that would be abnormal and unusual (for our case) is if they actually called it.

I wouldn't be surprised if Cincy's QB tore something there. The knee isn't supposed to twist like that. Hate to see that.

98-yard pass play here. We've waited all year for this.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Well now it'll be a 99 yard pass play.

Would have been nice...

Wow, we're backed up after that punt.

Isn't this how a struggling VT team beat a thriving Cincy team back in the day? By knocking out the QB?

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

Wow, zero run blocking on that 1st down play.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

That qb draw actually was a good call and terribly blocked

VB born, class of '14

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

I disagree with the fact you cheer for injuring opponents

VB born, class of '14


In actuality, I'm moreso cheering the action and effort of our defensive players paying off. If one of the opposition's key players getting his knocked out da game happens to be one of the rewards, so be it. Good for the defense. Good for our players. Great (possibly) for our team.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

Ridder headed to locker room

Not great - another 3 and out.

Why do we go 3 in out but their team gets to have the ball for like 10 minutes?

Our OL is straight up soft today.

Is it basketball season yet?

I'm not trying to be a P word, but at some point Cincy has to get flagged for the extra stuff after a play. On almost every position they have a player pushing, dragging, shoving a facemask, etc.

Yeah - 75's block continuing out of bounds should have been flagged on their last drive.

And at some point they might actually call it. Until such time, business as usual.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

It is obvious that Fuente does not trust his JR quarterback to not throw a pick. Really handicaps is at times though.

It really is the only explanation for always calling QB Draws on 3rd and long.

"Sooner or later, if man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we must fill our heart with tolerance."
-Stan Lee

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

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

At some point with a RS-Jr QB who has been in the system two full years now, you've gotta take the bubble wrap off the offense and get a little more aggressive. Our number one objective is just avoid turnovers at all costs.

I'm just ready for a fake punt.

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

Not inside your own 10 though. Did anyone check Hokie Sports for the roster updates?

With their QB out, I would expect mostly run plays.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

And then they throw a big pass.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Except for that perfect pass.

Fuente is the one that has no trust in his backup

Defense looks like shit today... in 2018 form

Today? Just saw your edit.

Is it basketball season yet?

Yeah, I realized I needed to correct myself

Hmm.. It's almost as if we had one of the worst defenses in FBS this season.

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

This season.

Three missed tackles on that play, should have been held for no gain.

Just turned the game on ... This looks like a typical VT offense & defense from this season.

Ladler completely whiffing on the tackle of that RB

Tyree didn't turn around the entire time. Yikes.

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

Well guys. This has been a tough year. Unfortunately I think the Bear may have been right.

This is about to get ugly

Will just keep rewatching the first five minutes of the game and assume the rest of the game is like that.

Our transformation into a soft Big 12 team is nearly complete.

The final part of the transformation is learning how to score more than 24 points in regulation.

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

Yeah regardless of their backup qb who is a starter and started for 2017 our offense isn't doing crap.

As usual their running game looks poised to pop a big run. I hope we survive this one but offense needs to get something going. Not looking good at the moment.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Its the backup QB curse.

Is it basketball season yet?

Lets have a 10 minute review on a VERY easy call.

Is it basketball season yet?

Our defense has a hard time with the difference between "hitting" and "tackling"

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

Holy crap how many people touched him and he still got that close

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

If guys like Tyree Rodgers and Jovonn Quillen play real snaps next year this defense is sunk. Need to find a way to replace those kind of guys with talented freshmen or transfers.

We are in the back field on every short yardage play, we just can't tackle.

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

Why can't we take a RB to he ground?

We put the K in Kwality

Thought maybe the 4 extra weeks of practice would have produced some improvement or signs of progress...nope.

Hard not to start questioning our coaching.

If the problem really is youth..shouldn't more time = better play??

No one wants to hear this, but we simply aren't a talented team defensively.

Is it basketball season yet?

Really....

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

Part of the problem is that it's not our DL in the backfield. It's mostly secondary guys. Those guys are undersized and generally poor tacklers.

Zero pressure on the QB only makes things drastically more difficult for the DBs. Our secondary is bad and don't have a single pass rusher on the team. Not a great place to be.

At this point, it's not a youth thing. It's talent and coaching.

Yep this defensive staff is awful.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Yes, Mitchell and Nix are bad. Bud and Wiles haven't recruited enough talent to put a competent, competitive D out there. Also spare the 'well guys went to the NFL' schtick. Guys move on from every team in the country.

That wasn't sarcasm.

I hate to break it to you, but relative to every other team in college football our guys are as young as they were at the beginning of the season.

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

Their running backs keep reaching for yardage we gonna get a fumble

"with all due respect, and remember I’m sayin’ it with all due respect, that idea ain’t worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin’ it on" - Ricky Bobby

Fumble, but...

That was their strategy all along..

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

Fumbling into the end zone should not be rewarded, but thems the breaks.

We stink

We wouldn't be here if not for a fumble into the endzone.

Wish they had the same rule as NFL does (or did), where only the ball carrier can recover for a TD.

We put the K in Kwality

Hopefully our offense can at least produce a decent drive. Even if we don't score let's get some yards.

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

Is it basketball season yet?

Walker just went to the locker room I think.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Probably to change jersey from the holding.

We put the K in Kwality

With an early game, I wasn't able to watch but just listen on the feed. I didn't hear Walker's name at all, what happened to him.? We really miss him

Walker was disruptive and effective in the first half (just wasn't getting tackles due to double teams). He was out for the entire second half for unknown reasons (I assume getting banged up).

Click here to destroy wall.

Before the gloom and doom people pile on: Cincy has been luckier than good so far. I like us down the stretch.

Ehhh....they are looking primed for a big run. Don't agree with this until our defense can get some decent pressure and tackle a running back.

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

D had looked pretty good in short yardage plays. Came just short of making a couple of great stops. As long as Walker is OK

If we go 3 and out again, fuck it put in HH or QP

HH is not dressed today. QP is the backup.

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

HH in street clothes

"with all due respect, and remember I’m sayin’ it with all due respect, that idea ain’t worth a velvet painting of a whale and a dolphin gettin’ it on" - Ricky Bobby

Okay but it's more offensive playcaller than QB play that is limiting our play so far.

I know it's early in the game but I've already had a heavy beer...time for another.

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

Gotta recover those loose balls. Makes a difference. I feel like the defense was kinda off during that last series (sloppy tackling, running into each other, not recovering lose balls, etc). Need to get it together. Alright Fuente (& Cornelsen). What say we open up the playbook on this next possession.

Anyone else catch Ricky Walker going to the locker room during the PAT?

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

I don't know what game you all are watching but I'm pretty encouraged by how the game is going... they certainly aren't running on us at will like I was afraid they would and we are tackling better than I thought we would (one or two plays excluded). If not for the big pass play on their last scoring drive, which I felt like was pretty well covered I don't think they'd have scored. All in all, I'll take it, and I'm mildly optimistic for the 2nd half.

What this game really needs - and I think all the people standing in the rain at the stadium will agree with me here - is more replays, penalties, and miscellaneous stoppages of play

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

Nice drive and... the FINISH! But these refs really suck hind tit.

Waho's suck

Fumble recovery is not really a skill you can improve. It is mostly luck and usually averages out to 50/50 given a large enough sample size. We've had our fair share of fumble luck this season (UNC and UVA games were won due to recovered fumbles; also the FSU game had incredible fumble luck for the good guys),

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

The defense has caused 4 (maybe 5) fumbles. They have recovered a big 🍩. Unacceptable. Should've grabbed at least 2.

Keep calm, Gobble on

Had a lot of fumble luck before today

Khalil Ladler with the back-to-back FF. What a stat.

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

Didn't Cody Grimm have 3 in row against Duke? On the first 3 plays of the game?

We put the K in Kwality

Here's all that fumble luck in the opener coming back around

Defense is still pretty bad, was hoping for some improvement.

I must be watching the wrong game... I've been incredibly down on the defense all year and I'm loving what we're seeing today (especially in comparison to the rest of the season).

Yeah, must be. Not at all impressed with watching these guys operate when they're lining up or just their general awareness during plays. Seems like something gets lost every play whether it's proper alignment, angles to ball, or weak-ass shoulder tackles. Not going to get it done in P5 football.

I think tackling has been pretty solid. There was one play I recall with a couple missed tackles but thats it. Getting decent pressure on dropbacks. No big run plays aside from the one with missed tackles. Generating good push on short yardage plays. Forcing fumbles (would be nice to recover one or two). Even the big pass plays had good coverage, just bad results. I'll take it for the first half... we'll see how the 2nd half goes.

Edit: The 2nd drive of the 2nd half is what I was expecting.

Defense is still bad.

Looked bad on that second drive of the second half... but I maintain they were solid in the first and way better than what we saw for the majority of 2018.

Okay, well they're still really bad.

I'm not sure why you think repeating that you thought they were bad in the first half is worth anything... what exactly were they bad at in the first half? Or do you just like saying the same thing over and over again?

Finally, a 3 & out.

Our entire offensive line was pushed back 3 yards into our backfield on that stretch/OZ, embarrassing.

Is it sad that I almost think most of our run plays would have equal results if we just had no O-line? Just a non-factor. No physicality.

Thought McClease was about to go full David Wilson on that. Thank goodness.

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

I hate that the time out can be called just as they are kicking. That's stupid.

We need a kicker that can hit FGs

It really shouldn't matter, Johnson should be able to hit a 40 yarder.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

A little late response as I am at work, but, though it shouldn't matter to a kicker who can make the kicks, it's the fact that a coach can tell the ref as the clock ticks down, "I want a time out just before they snap." and they do that. There's no pressure on the coach to wait for the last second and try to get in the TO just before, and potentially miss getting the TO.

The amount of rage I felt for that split second when they blew the whistle....

Practicing our motto, ut prosim, or, "that I may serve," is imperative in recognizing what it means to be part of the Hokie family.

Run a slow developing play to the short side of the field on 1st and 10, run a QB draw on 2nd and 14, throw 7 yards short of the sticks on 3rd and 12, miss the 40+ yard field goal to end the half.

Tied 14-14 with sorry-ass Cincinnati. Jesus we're a joke. As soon as their starting QB went down you had to know this was going to be a tough game because for some reason our defense makes backup QB's look like the second-coming of Peyton manning. Really hope we have a dramatic turnaround in the off season because we are garbage

...after the PI made it a new set of downs

Correct.

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

So I'm supposed to just know which 2nd and goal play he is talking about? Because both of them were fine play calls Willis just didn't throw it away.

It was a great playcall. Fake the run, which often works on the goaline, roll the QB out and if it's not there, you're outside the pocket and you can throw it away.

Except it wasn't a designed rollout.

It was a designed run. The "rollout" was improv.

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

Curious how you know that.

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Only a great playcall IF it works (which it didn't).

This is the point in game threads where the assholes just start downvoting everyone else. What did Rocket say that was worth a downvote? Come out into the light with that weak shit.

that was a blatant PI

Yay!

Is that a....third quarter touchdown?

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

Cunningham TD play!!

Cunningham reappears!

They always forget about Cunningham!

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

FUCK YEAH, BIG DIKT CUNNINGHAM!!!

Touchdowns only Chris

wow that mud hill looked amazing after the Touchdown

Haha that is literally the Chris Cunningham play.

Using /s is for cowards.

I just picture him showing up to practice to run that play a few times and then going home.

wait we scored a TD in the 3rd quarter ?

Yep. In fact, we did it in the 3rd vs Marshall, so we're kinda on a streak.

Great playcall by Cornelson there. Sure would be nice to have a 7 point lead here though

Hell of a drive right there.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I want a defensive score.

Yes. Me, too (or two).

TD!!

great play great play long third down shit the bed

Another coverage mix up which keeps the drive alive...I need alcohol

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

I do too, but I have friends coming over later and can't be drunk when they get here.

Sounds like you need new friends..../s

I didn't say I wouldn't be drunk when they leave. . .

Farley with a blown coverage on a huge 3rd down

How do we know that was Farley? Looked like a perfect play call against cover 2, which Floyd was a bit slow getting to.

Is it basketball season yet?

I'll take one of those fumbles from earlier now.

It seems like that happens to our seniors in bowl games way too much

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

Well we survived the third. Now what.....

We survived the 3rd for once.

Took a peek over at the sabre...someone called Dax a "fat dirty redneck" lolol

He's not fat!

He's just big bonned!

Five yard penalty to prevent a big play is smart.

#11 on Cincy's defense needs his teeth knocked in. He runs his mouth constantly, even at his own teammates.

This d just is bad

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

Anyone got a report on Rick?

Clearly he's out, but with what?

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

Floyd has zero chance of getting to the edge in cover 2.

Is it basketball season yet?

Dax is just took big and slow to keep up on a wheel route.

I wish we'd stop giving them yards.

We are playing 10 yards off their WR's and then wondering why they are picking up 3rd and 7's.

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

three times in a row we just give the receiver the sticks

Been doing it all game. 3rd and long and we play 8+ off the LOS

WHY THE FUCK ARE WE PLAYING SO FAR OFF

...and yet there's no one back to prevent the long play.

We put the K in Kwality

how many 3rd downs have we given up?

All of them.

Again. They just suck

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

Great job accounting for that pesky QB rush.

That was on Ashby.

Add Hayden Moore to the list of backups that have torched us.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

When their starter went down I literally turned to my wife and said "that's not good, we've gotten torched by backups this year....and this backup has a lot of experience."

It seemed almost impossible that nobody tackled him before he scored

Yes it does, it's 2018

Not for long mercifully

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

That was embarrassing top to bottom on that play

Gettin tard of this "young" team shit. They've played a whole season. If youth is the issue on this team then that
