Week Zero gameday Disney

After a lot of backlash looks like the Mouse overlord is making an exception. Looks like I might go down to see it. Will try to get my Tech flag in and on screen.

Doesn't say anything about flags, only signs.

Why were they so concerned with signs to begin with? I understand not wanting bad language because it's a family atmosphere, but otherwise the signs seem harmless to me.

I think it is just general policy for the parks.

Naive reason: signs obstruct views and they want people to see the park around them.
Cynical reason: signs can carry messages or advertising contrary to Disney's and they want to control as much of that as they can.

Naive reason: signs obstruct views and they want people to see the park around them.

Call me the no-fun police, but I think Gameday should institute a similar type of policy.

My wife and I have season tickets to JMU games and were at both Gamedays when it came to Harrisonburg, and one of my enduring memories of the second one is a massive banner stretched between two poles with one of the fraternity houses letters on it.

Not only was it a jerk move for all the people behind them, but I thought it looked bad on tv too cause it blocked the view of the main building behind the set.

You want to get rid of a tradition for everyone because you had a bad experience :/

Recruit Prosim

Gotta say after today some signs are way too much and they do block everyone else's view of the show.

It didn't affect my personal experience that day, since I wasn't in the main crowd area.

But I felt bad for all the people directly behind them, because these frat douches unfurled their huge banner literally minutes before Gameday went live. Imagine if you'd been waiting for hours like all those people, only to have your view of the entire spectacle blocked right before anything of consequence happened?

The signs are often the best part of Gameday. I just feel like some common courtesy should be extended if people have one. That's all.

I agree with you, but I've learned that expecting folks to extend something that should be common, such as courtesy, is expecting a lot. Especially from the 18-25 crowd.

Now get off my lawn!

You kinda know what you are getting when going to GameDay live. Watch on TV while prepping the grill/smoker for the day. Much easier and you don't miss anything.

It has to do with prohibited items at Disney World in general. Because the show is going to be broadcast within the park, they originally prohibited the items that you would normally not be able to bring into the park anyway.

I'm going as well, no sign making for me though. I wonder how much crossover there is for locals here in Orlando who have Disney passes and football fans. We shall see.

So that makes three of us.

The set should be set up on the train station over looking Town Square with the castle in the distance. There will also possibly be a set up (most likely their Home Depot field for interviews) in The Hub near the Crystal Palace. I'm hoping they'll pipe in the audio, but that hasn't been confirmed yet.
Also, I need some ideas for a sign.

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

There is an "Arkansas AND ODU" fan here with a poster with the score of last years game and wearing a shirt about the game.

Tell him since we beat them by 38 in '17 and they beat us by 14 last year we still hold a 24 point advantage

And after this year's seal clubbing we'll have a 44 point advantage.

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

a 44 64 point advantage

Can't think of anything we could rub in his face there...

(PS thanks for the pics and updates)

Looks like they let signs in after all or are they showing people outside of the park?

@hokie_rd

They changed the rules to allow signs from open till noon in the coral, all signs must be taken out or thrown away as soon as show is over.

And he later apologized for it.

I laughed out loud, only because that skit remains one of the funniest to me, but I understand young children watch. My daughter is young enough that nothing registered when he said it. Week 0 and they aren't on their game yet.

@hokie_rd

It's really no worse than some of the ads that they run during broadcasts. I've quite a few times had to explain what an M-rated game was to my 6-y.o. during games on ESPN. Not the end of the world, but it's definitely not a channel that's safe if you're looking to keep those topics from your kids.

Oh I laughed that he said it, I didnt really care about the apology it's football, there's lots of cussing going on. You hear worse things being shouted if you go to the game.

Awesome seeing so many Hokies our today. There were Dozens of us. Only issue was when the music show happened they cut the audio to the show instead of Gameday. Great meeting Disney Hokie with his Bud sign.

It was good to meet you too.

It's Time to go to Work

Ask Disney I did this in real life today. There was a guy wearing a Hokie polo farther back in the crowd, during a silent commercial moment he yelled "Let's go" so I by myself yelled "Hokies" people laughed saying there are so few of you. I yelled fist raised "there are dozens of us".

I also yelled asked Dan Mullen if he was academically cleared to be here today. Got a good laugh from none UF fans.

For anyone who missed head gear, Lee ranted about his pick for Miami, put on a Florida hat, and did the Noles chop. We're back.

He started in rough shape, then got better, and then regressed toward the end of the show. Can honestly say I don't know what I want to happen or how. I love him so much, but there are times you can see everyone else thinking "well how are we going to get this back on track."

I guess my real hope is he decides on his own to leave at some point soon, and they give him the most epic season sendoff ever. Just let him do whatever for ever game.

When they have to replace him, I'm at a loss. I can't think of any personality that can fill those shoes.

@hokie_rd

Watching it from the crowd below you really get a sense for how bad it's getting. He left multiple times, they were constantly moving his chair for him or adjusting him etc. I want him to go out on top not with an incident.

On top? Yeah....he missed that opportunity about a decade ago.

Sorry....just saying...

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Les Miles. Replace headgear with the Mad Hatter.

Replace him with Bud!

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

Corso was great with his "NOT SO FAST MY FRIEND..." on Michael Irvin multiple times. It was sad he is still a little slurry in his speech but I think he did great considering what he has gone through.

I about died when Desmond asked if he was gonna have to choke a bitch, ... And when he started his apology I shushed my wife so I could hear it. Lol.

Everyone talking about Corso not having it anymore just breaks my heart. He is Game Day for me. Corso, Herbie, Fowler, Howard, and now Davis, Maria, and Pollock... These folks are a big part of my fall Saturday mornings.

FOOTBALL IS BACK BABY!!

FUCK MIAMI.... But... If they win, they good for the Coastal...I guess.

Wasn't able to watch, but my favorite still has to be Corso, off-camera but with a hot mic, and someone else's mic not working, yelling "FUCK!"

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

What about this one? I remember seeing it live and not believing what I had just heard:

I feel bad for Corso, its not quite Dick Clark, but you hate to see anyone go through that in public. But Its already not Game Day and hasn't been for years. It's such a spectacle with all their segments that I dont really care for. They are wasting David Pollucks career, he was an amazing announcer. Now he gets 10 minutes of face time to ride rides with Maria. I think Bear's picks was a horrible add. The whole show is just harder and harder for me to watch every year. They just have to many personalities involved and most of them aren't great for the format. This is the most I've watched in a few years because it hadn't been good.

Agreed on the Bear. I have no interest in listening to his gambling lines. Pollack is a bro but that's cool, there's space for a guy like that on a college ball set.

Corso is a legend and I'll enjoy watching him this year regardless of how he does, but it is definitely winding down for him. With any luck, today was just first show rust and he'll be his regular self the rest of the year. As for a replacement for him, I'd have to go with Marty Smith. He's just the right mix of knowledgeable and silly to do the headgear.

Find a game that Polluck announced, he did his homework, they were great. He maybe a bro, but he put some effort in and it showed.

I think the headgear should retire with Corso, do something else.

To be clear, I didn't mean that he's a bro derogatorily - he just kinda talks like he's still in the locker room all the time. And you're right, that guy knows the game and calls it well.

As for headgear, I like your suggestion. There still needs to be some sort of picking at the end of Gameday, might be hard to find something so ubiquitous as using the headgear for the teams. There's bound to be something

I agree that there should be picking under some other gimmick. There are so many to choose from that I'm sure they will pick a terrible one that we will all either find hilarious or unbearable. ;)

My 2019 Season Challenge: only comment with Star Wars memes. (completed as of Nov. 29)

Pretty sure the correct answer is women in university thongs (probably normal swim suit for BYU). They come out in a trench coat and then reveal the pick by removing the coat. I'm 99% sure Michael Irvin needs to be the picker.

EDIT: Women AND Men in thongs!

This is the most sexist comment I've read on here in a long time. It should be men in thongs, too! Plus don't forget to include fat guys. We should have Corso do it a few times first to see how it goes over.

My 2019 Season Challenge: only comment with Star Wars memes. (completed as of Nov. 29)

That's how I came up with the Les Miles idea. Hats instead of mascot heads. And of course, as time goes on, the hats could get more elaborate.

I don't know how the timing might work though with Miles taking the Kansas job. I think he might be there longer than Corso is on Gameday.

Sigh

Of course social media outrage made Desmond apologize for that.

I never knew I'd be so interested in Villanova/Colgate and Youngstown State/Samford, but here we are. Happy football season, folks! We made it through another long stupid offseason.

I do not like Miami. It's taken me two beers and a lot of thinking about how much I miss college football, but I'm actually a little bit excited about cheering for Miami tonight.

A Hokies gotta do what a Hokies gotta do.

I know this isn't about GameDay, but this didn't warrant its own thread.

The Youngstown St vs Samford announcer just referred to Boise State traveling across the country and "manhandling" Virginia Tech.

Huh....that's interesting.....not exactly how I remember that game. Loser.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

If Kellen Moore managing the crap out of 2 minute drill manhandling, then sure.

Well, they did go up 17-0 and still led at the half. We just happened to claw back and fail to run out the clock with a 4 point lead.

After working in Central FL for 22 years surrounded by UF Gator engineers, i was sick of gator fans. As an engineer their weren't that many Miami engineers around, but their douchery is SO well established. So, for this game, i have to root for UF. I dislike them both, but Miami is especially despised.

You do realize he was average at UGA with 4* & 5* talent... UGA fans used to call the opponents 3rd down, "3rd and Grantham" because they were horrible on 3rd down D.

You do realize that he had one of the worst D's in the ACC when at L'ville (with similar talent to VT)...

Play was blown dead for false start.

A play got blown for a false start and he ran through the line anyway and got in Frank's face.

Other than that his only contribution has been getting gobbled up inside on late releases and throwing his body at carriers already going down.

Play before the false start he came in late and dove on a down player.

And the play after he dove into Franks the same way after Franks scrambled for like 6.

To be clear I don't fault him for any of this. It's a strategy to wear an opponent and walk that line of legal late hits and get in their head.

Florida could have at least 17 points right now. Miami may be committing stupid penalties, but not as bad as these turnovers.

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

I am so mad at the way that first half played out. Welcome back to college football went the frustrating route.

Miami just keeps out douching themselves.

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

It's like Florida is actively trying to lose or something man

The edibles just kicked in. Shit yeah.

Looking forward to the half time adjustments from both teams, but Florida particularly. This game feels like it should be a blow out in favor of the Gators but somehow the Caints are winning.

Florida has been tremendously unlucky. Their fumbles came on:

1) A botched handoff.
2) A hit where it looked like their team possessed the ball, was on the ground, then dropped it and was piled on.

Miami's lone touchdown was tipped to the perfect spot and otherwise looked like an incompletion. Miami's O-Line is a MAJOR liability as well.

Outspoken team cake advocate. Hates terrapins. Resident Macho Man Gif Poster. Distant cousin to Dork Magic. Frequently misspells words.

Florida is obviously overrated. Miami is not playing great but good enough to this point. Their QB is 12/14 with smart play calling for him, and the TE can play. If it weren't for awful tackling UF might not have any points

I say go Canes. Any SEC team losing ooc is fine by me, and let Miami be bak, right until they're not

I mean Florida would be winning if not for an unforced fumble inside the Miami 5. They might not be 8 but they look more like a team playing their first game than anything else.

So are the other guys, with a guy head coaching his first game

Don't tell him that...he'll shush ya real quick. You'd think they would want him on the bench with his teammates, but what the hell do I know?

I hate to say this but Frank's QB rating was better that most of Willis single game ratings last year. Only Duke, GT, and Marshall games were better.

Williams rating was equal to Willis's season rating.

Yep, after watching this game and both teams, all I can say is sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. Could have used another week of practice.

Another ten weeks of practice won't fix the Swiss cheese for and offensive line Miami has they couldn't do anything except quick screens or quick play action or the qb was getting killed every time

Trevon Hill with 2 tackles on the night

Straight trash homie

VB born, class of '14

I wonder if Hill is throwing a hissy fit in the locker room and fighting coaches.

You gotta be careful with those TD brass knuckle floating around. Some one gonna get knocked out. And no one wants cheap miami bling imprinted in their face.

I don't know what to make of this Arizona team. Most of the 1st quarter they were trying to make Khalil Tate a pocket passer and got 6 total yards of offense on 3 drives and they suddenly switched to a read-option and got 2 first downs. Their defense is awful as well and the secondary is abysmal. I am beginning to think Manzel made Sumlin and not vice versa. Arizona better hope his buyout is not too crazy. And as I write this, Tate just did a Tebow jump pass. That was crazy.

Wow, I was pissed watching this game and and I didn't give 2 shits about either team. I'd have lost my liver if that was us on the field tonight.

I'm rejoicing in the fact that Trevon Hill is probably being a little bitch and fucking up the team vibe in the locker room. He and Miami are a match made in Hell.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I think they have a bunch of guys that could fuck up the team vibe. Its gonna be fun to watch.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Hill be doing his thing! Dias what the F*(K.

Watching that game gives me optimism for VT in the coastal.
1) Miami D - fast and talented, but the secondary is vulnerable if you can generate some respect
For the RPO game.
2) Miami O line is worse than FSU last year. Their left tackle got worked over all night and their guards were constantly pushed off the ball extremely badly. They have a serious problem up front.
3) Miami doesn't have any scary playmakers -
Combine this with their O line issues and their offensive strategy will have to change or their QB doesn't make it through the season.

Jeff Thomas and Deejay Dallas are dangerous. Brevin Jordan is a good tight end as well, but they struggled to get him the ball outside of screens.

Their OL is bad but for us, we don't have nearly the DL and edge talent that Florida has. Will we be able to take advantage of their protection? I doubt they will give up 10 sacks a game. As sloppy as Florida was at times, that defense is loaded with talent and has better rushers than most teams Miami will face this year.

I certainly don't expect us to get 10 sacks vs Miami. I do expect us to miss less tackles than Florida did.

So are you saying that you don't want Grantham as our next DC?

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

We can't afford Grantham as a DC anyway, but I wouldn't base my assessment of his quality as a DC on one game. He has plenty of film/stats at Florida and Georgia as DC. If he comes back to VT it's likely as a HC.

I agree that obviously we have to be able to take advantage of their obvious weakness.

Jeff and Deejay were okay, but their offense will struggle to put up numbers without a line. Their o line was atrocious - slow feet on pass pro, very little ability to get to the second level and their guards got pushed into the backfield so often it forced the running plays off their angles over and over again.

Florida certainly has talent up front and this doesn't take away from that. My point is they aren't that good as Miami looked very very vulnerable up from on offense. The QB can run a little, but is a straight line runner without lots of wiggles.

Prior to us playing Miami they are going to have to think about managing their QB's, potentially change their offensive strategy and their playmakers won't make as many plays without a like that can block someone. Not just for us - for anyone they play this season.

I agree they need to switch the offense. If their OL is going to be that poor in pass pro all year I'd switch to Tate Martell (to protect Jarren from a Francois/David Carr type season of getting crushed all year) and go run-heavy, and lean on the RPO's for a quick passing game. It's a tough beat for Jarren Williams who didn't play terribly in spite of the OL, but I think it's a viable long-term play for him.

WTH! giving advice to mu?

I couldn't get enough college football so I'm still up and Arizona is trying to kill themselves as well. 38 yard fg turns into a 53 after 3 straight penalties

I don't know about you but I'm glad I stayed up to watch it... Hawai'i punted up 7 with a minute left, and Zona got it to the 31 with 10 seconds to go, when Tate scrambled and was tackled at the 1 after the clock hit 0:00. Couldn't have scripted it any better.

That was a wild finish!

Bill C coming in hot to show that S&P interpreted analytically exactly what many of us saw last night. Miami benefited from a pretty extraordinary amount of luck that turned what should have been a comfortable win for Florida into a nail biter.

One of my favorite things about S&P is that it acts as a great way to double check your "eye test" reaction to a game. Sometimes it shows your eye test was exactly right, other times it may reveal that you weren't seeing things clearly. I love it.

Hopefully I don't eat crow on this, but Manny Diaz is going to be worse than Al Golden for the Canes. At least Golden's teams were somewhat disciplined. It's like when Larry Coker took over and after all the talent left, Miami was horrible. The only difference is that Diaz doesn't have the talent, so they'll just tank immediately. They can't tackle, their offensive line is horrible, they're undisciplined, and they turn the ball over a bunch.

They'll probably receive more votes to be in the top 25 after losing by four to the eighth ranked team, but Florida is probably going 8-4 this season. This was like when Texas and Notre Dame played a couple years ago and it was a close game, so everyone thought both teams were good when they were actually both bad.

Remembers our game against FSU last year...

We murdered them. Miami and Florida was similar to Notre Dame and Texas because both games were close.

I would like to point out that Miami dominated time of possession to the tune of 36-24...and still lost

SEC time of possession. It just means more.

Stay classy Miami. Some terrible people, it's just a game of which you have no control over! Enjoy it and don't let it ruin your life!

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