Last place finisher, is still a finisher.

We put the K in Kwality

His time is 2:27...if this is a marathon he's not finishing last with a time like that

But you don't know how long the race is...May be a fun-run.

We put the K in Kwality

good point....but if you're nearly dropping dead after a fun run, you should probably stop running of any kind

that's a lot of flags and quite the finish line for anything other than a marathon or similar long distance race

I once did pretty much did this act thing. I was in a fundraiser fun-run, probably came in 30th (out of 25). Collapsed across the finish line....wrapped myself up in the flag (not the US flag...just whatever was nearby) and took a victory lap. It was a touching moment.

We put the K in Kwality

This is so appropriate

It's game day, Hokie family.
Sport your colors.
Perform the game day rituals.
Cheer loud and long for our team - loud enough that they can hear us all the way up at BC from where ever we are following the game.
Let's start Bud's final season right!
GO HOKIES !

Reppin VT in RHB, fam!

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

How's everybody feeling about this one? Listening to the Two Deep made me feel a lot better about it.

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

Nervous as always but I'm doing my best to soak in every moment of Bud's final 15 games

I see what you did there...

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

Honestly, last (& the off) season has helped me to lower (damn near remove) any expectations. I believe they're capable of avenging last year's loss to BC. But because of everything, it's a tossup. I still feel apathetic. Maybe I'll pluck up when/if we win. Don't screw up. Make it a great game.

I feel the same way. I'm hanging at the pool as I type this and I'm only mildly concerned about making it back in time for kickoff. I'm not even sure if I have a cool beer ready to drink... plenty of bourbon though to either elevate my excitement or numb the pain.

Let's Gooooo!!!!

Ok time to help technology challenged fireman TKP family. Have TIVO which allows me access directly to Hulu app. Was going to start free trial, but I read online ACCN isn't on regular Hulu. How do I make sure I am getting ACCN during free trial?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Hulu live is a separate service but still runs through the regular Hulu app. Sign up for the trial here. This will have ACCN.

https://www.hulu.com/live-tv

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

If you're doing the free trial you should get it. The cheap (I think $5.99) version doesn't have ACCN.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Fair warning, a lot of smart tvs etc. don't supporr the new version of the Hulu app that it requires for live tv. I have a Vizeo 4k that is only 2-3 years old and it wouldn't support the new Hulu update app so I just bought the newest 4k Roku stick and it works perfectly.

I don't even know how to figure that out. I would hope since the app is native to the TiVo box it would work.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Depends on the age of your TiVo and of it constantly updates itself. Chromecast or something is a good backup just in case.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

I am unable to get live TV using the Hulu app on my Tivo box. It only gives me access to the Hulu library. So, I just use my laptop to stream ACCN via Hulu and then push it to my tv with chromecast.

This. Most of those native apps built in to boxes and tvs are really crappy.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

Meanwhile my gen1 chromecast was still working great last night

edit: on my 13 year old LCD TV. Suck it progress

via GIPHY

I have 3 originals and no issues. Barely touched them since I plugged them in.

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

So Hulu live sports DOES NOT work with TiVo or. Active Hulu app on Samsung TV. So going to have to stream via HDMI from wife's Apple computer. Jesus I hate this shit. I just want to watch a TV channel and be able to use my six tuners to have six games on at once!

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Same here.

I was going to stream straight from laptop, but realized that in addition to my TV, TIVO Roamio, and Apple TV 3, which only support the Hulu Classic app, I had a fire TV stick that I bought a year ago on Prime Day.

The fire stick runs the Hulu app that supports Hulu Live.

But it does seem harder than it needs to be.

I bought an appletv 4K last night to try out for Vue, instead of the ps4 pro, or my Roku express, and it has by far the best integration of vue over the other two.

Gives me the ability to rewind directly from where I am on any program that is recording, and gives the entire recently watched channels the ability to pick up from whenever you last changed the channel. First time I've felt I'm no longer losing anything from dropping the actual cable box.

Has better picture quality too than anything I've used before. Surprised Sony is giving the appletv better functionality than the ps4.

Transfer portal segment on Game Day was dumb, didn't mention VT, and forced me to explain "F@&k that" to my 6 and 8 year old. Shame on you ESPN, but totally not surprised.

Hokies!!!

College game day is just so gimmicky now. They need to get back to the basics. I guess that's what happens when your trying to fill 3 hours of a program.

Fellas.

I'm a groomsman in a wedding during the game today (I know) so I'm going to have to look at updates on my phone throughout the reception and somehow keep my wife from getting TOO mad at me.

Pray for me & LET'S GO HOKIES

You have terrible friends if they schedule a wedding on opening weekend of college football. Everyone here is thinking it, I'm just saying it. I told my wife when we got married earlier this year that we would not be getting married during the season and that I would stand in 100 degree heat outside if it meant our wedding wouldn't be during the season.

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Told my wife the same thing earlier this year when we got married as well. Luckily this is the last wedding of the year for us

I feel like there is a slight pass for this weekend, as folks might not have paid close enough attention to the calendar, since it's still August.

Of course that's probably because my cousin is getting married today and I'm posting this from a hotel in NC waiting for the festivities to start.

In Cape Cod for a buddy's wedding this weekend. He's a wahoo so football season isn't important.

Where on Cape? I'm in Sandwich

And sandwich is in me!

Hate to pop your bubble there, but the 'hoos I know are actually paying attention again. Making bets and talking a little trash, even. They ain't crowin', but they're lying if they don't admit they harbor a quiet hope for this season. May we trash those hopes yet again.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

I second this, I chose a late March wedding instead of a football season wedding.

Real friends don't get married during football season.

Finally, the wait is over!

LET'S GO!!!!

Let's Go

HOKIES

It's here. Once again, we will be talking about football games. Not recruiting, not off field issues, not rumors or conjecture or hear say, we're going to talk about football. To all those who stuck around throughout the off season, I salute you. To all those who are popping back in, grab a drink and let's go!

I am so excited to watch this game today. We wanted to visit the in-laws in B'ham for the weekend, so I brought our AppleTV so I could stream the game through YoutubeTV. My in-laws are Bama fans, so they'll be downstairs watching Bama-Duke.

By the way, I'm paying $50 extra for YoutubeTV, on top of our Comcast package, just because of ACCN. Ridiculous!

I have relatively low expectations for this game and the season. Still, I hope the guys ball out and earn respect this season.

Did the ACCN just randomly stop working on Hulu Live for anyone else?

same for me. no idea what just happened. ESPN2 appears to be having the same issue as ACCN. Hoping they have it fixed by 4pm.

Strange how the timing works out on these malfunctions.

Systems get a lot more stress with all of the extra traffic from Gameday.

Looking on Sling and I don't see ACCN!

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

Of all the things to discover 90 minutes from kickoff. Lol

Just added ACC Network to my DirecTV package. I think the lady said my TV bill went from $60 to $90. Website said it was only $17 jump, but fuck that, I'll worry about it later. Go Hokies!

Shit. That's quite the jump up.

Yeah, I don't think that's right but I'll look at it and handle it on Tuesday.

It's included with my package. I have the choice package, I think. Definitely paying less than that.

My wife asked earlier if we had the ACCN with the package I selected. I told her there was nothing to worry about - she gets everything she needs with my package.

You must have quite the package.

Are we not doing phrasing?

Anyone need a ticket to the game? 50 yd line. Free to my hokies!

I'm so fucking nervous. If they can just get this year started right....if we come out and look like crap it's going to get ugly fast in this fanbase. So ready to get last season put behind us.

I'm trying hard to limit my expectations. That's so damn hard though. Hoping for a great game and a victory by the good guys.

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Not feeling like that was a great start. We really needed to step on the gas early and put points on the board. I feel like if BC decides to with 3 yds and a cloud of dust we are screwed. DL is gonna get gassed and manhandled by that big BC OL

The worst thing is that they tried 3 totally different plays. Run, short pass, deep ball. All ended with zilch.

Just the first series. Be chill everybody. STAY FUCKING CALM.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Bad play calling on the opening drive. Don't like getting back into routine 3rd and longs.

Horrible play calling on both sides so far. First one to make a good call, wins.

Well..so far the O and D look.....the same.

Love the low percentage fade to the sideline on 3rd down....claasic Cornelson

If our offense is really supposed to be the strength this would be a really good time to start showing it.

We put the K in Kwality

Agree. Offense needs to carry the still young D. I'm still hopeful that CornFu delivers the promised offensive firepower.

I hate ACCN and I hate Cox.....awful effing launch. I don't wanna by Hulu, Vur, Sling etc. First missed opening kickoff in 20 years.....heading to the bar.

Cue up the vent thread lol. Rough start

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

Gotta love Farley jawing on the PB on first drive and then getting burned for a TD on the next. Hopefully he can redeem himself.

Edit: my bad, wasnt farley on the TD coverage.

Where's the beef?

Yep, just saw that. Edited my post.

Not Watts either...

These play calls suck

two three and outs... less than ideal gentlemen

Still waiting to see this Fuente offense.

Let's go D

Our offense is just offensive.

We put the K in Kwality

Cornelson is a joke.

I'm starting to agree.

Agreed for the past three years

Go for it

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

Make the correct read on the option, damn!

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

Not a good sign...

Offensive play calling is exactly what I remembered. Glad it's all back. Crap.

Weak call there

Our third and short running game... it's so painful to watch.

Kendricks came in as a man!

We put the K in Kwality

Oh boy

VB born, class of '14

With all the hype over Robinson, let's see him get the ball!

Good physical play by Kendricks there

Holy shit this is not good

No pressure on the QB. Can't cover FBS receivers for that long

That was Farley getting beat...

We put the K in Kwality

We still cannot get any push on the OL. Every running play looks completely painful.

Fuckin farley

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

Ughhhhhh

Touchdown Tech!!!

JFC

Can't blame Farley there. Foster blew that call. Not many DBs that can cover for that long, even in the NFL

10 secs to throw there...all those DL recruiting misses hitting hard now

This sucks but Brown has thrown two dimes deep.

Using /s is for cowards.

This is going to be a looooooooooong season...

D Line no pressure at all.

SLC

Only rushed 3

We put the K in Kwality

Hot take. Our corners are just garbage.

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

I wouldn't say that yet. Foster only brought 3 with a D line that is nothing special. Corners are gonna be hard pressed covering that long at any level

I think it's a combo of no pass rush + inadequate corner play.

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

Disagree. Can't let the QB have 10 seconds to throw. You can only cover for so long

That's on the pass rush btw. That was a backyard football route at that point

Foster only rushing 3 on those long 3rd downs isn't going to get it done.

Is it basketball season yet?

Agreed, that was a defense of Farley

Is that because we don't think we can get pressure even with 5? So might as well have extra guys in coverage ....

Guys it is early....but the eye test says this year won't be much different than last

Hot garbage all around lol

VB born, class of '14

Defense looking solid against the run and short stuff. Struggling to cover when Brown is passing under no pressure.

Good stop! Now let's get the offense rolling!

Great work by the defense there.

Vice can recruit talent, but the on-field product is just abysmal.

Beginning to think No

I was wondering the same thing. All this talent and size on OL. Passive upright bullshit

I'm starting to wonder if it's a technique coaching issue on the offensive line.

French says it is.

Willis is our leading rusher

We put the K in Kwality

Willis is sneaky athletic.......

Good to see the offensive play calling is still hot flaming garbage
Ok even a blind squirrel...

This didn't age well

One good play doesn't change that. Also looked like there was some kind of confusion on Willis turning to his left after the snap. Would be interesting to see if it was a busted coverage more so than a good play call....

(add if applicable) /s

Protection looked beautiful there.

Great protection, the entire secondary bit on the play action, and Willis threw a dime. Exactly how you draw it up.

Using /s is for cowards.

Everything is good now FAM!

Lets all be positive for the next 10 minutes until or the sh!$ hits the fan again.

Is it basketball season yet?

Until that happens. Secondary still looks like an issue.

Where's the beef?

Damn. Tyree laid the wood on that hit. Hope he's OK

B-E-A-utiful!!!
LET'S GO!!!

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

Honestly I like the effort level and aggression of the defense so far, but we HAVE to get pressure on the QB or it's all for naught.

One of these days an announcer is gonna slip up and say "You know, for a white guy...!"

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Pick 6 time guys.......

Or not......

nice hit by Murray!

Our D line is getting no pressure

Big stop! Pleased with the run def so far.

Where's the beef?

If stop on 4th down right there

Classic "break but don't bend" defense

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

Defense came to play against the run. I love it.

Still desperately seeking a pass rush

Whatever direction we go with DC next year, it's time to bring in a new philosophy. Small DLs do not work in today's game. You generate no pass rush and get blown off the ball. Even if it takes a few years to transition, I think it's definitely time to revamp.

I mean we had a pass rush in 2017... it hasn't been that long. Lack of talent is a bigger issue, but I agree we need bigger DE's in general.

I'm team Glenn Schumann and bring in the 3-4. No one can run fosters scheme like him, so it's time to just turn the page.

What a stop!

we are stopping the run ... so far

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

nice stop!

Flowers is torching us, but we are stopping Dillon

Willis needs to move his eyes. That batted ball was too easy BC he was staring at one spot

it's a good thing it was batted down at the line.. #34 read that pass like a newspaper and was in position for the pick-6

Our run blocking is horrid right now.

Is it basketball season yet?

Most definitely. However, BC always has good lines on both sides of the ball. I hate starting with a conference game. We need some warm up games.

That tipped pass might have been picked if it wasn't tipped...

Using /s is for cowards.

The DB was standing in front of the receiver, that was literally a pick-6 waiting to happen.

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

ACCN on Hulu. Can't fast forward the commercials.

So I guess they'll make money, anyway.

There is absolutely zero flow or continuity to our offense right now. So disappointing with the talent that we have.

Is it basketball season yet?

Is hazelton playing

Our O is same old same old πŸ˜–

Our kick coverage teams are coming in with heavy shoulders. The returners might want to start thinking about fair catches

I saw an open Tayvion on that play that got batted down ... Let's see what he's got!

That was UVAish

Where's the beef?

I thought Willis was working on reading progressions? Dude can't stop staring down his target

3 and out....nothing changed for last year...this is not looking good. UGH

There was a pass rush....

We missed a big opportunity on that BC fumble

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

And then we let then off the hook on 3rd and forever

Bud getting worked right now. My 5 year old knows a screen or draw is coming there

A fucking basic screen on 3rd and 22

Inexcusable nobody got off their blocks there

fuck off

Who?

Where's the beef?

Really 3 and a mile

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

Literally, the only thing BC is doing is on 3rd and long

Is it basketball season yet?

We are no longer DB U.

We really needed a warmup game to start the season this year. We are not looking all that good so far.

Where's that RI game when you need it?

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

No, we need to be better, an O-line for the run game, and DBs to cover receivers.

We have to improve our play if we expect to beat Boston College, Alabama, and Clemson this year.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Hey guys. He made a joke. Get it? Guys?

...Lol sorry just playing.

Using /s is for cowards.

You mean Boston College, Clemson, Alabama, then Clemson again!

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

BC is stacking the box and blitzing. Let's get the ball out wide. Spread them out.

Do you have any way to contact brad cornelson?

Where's the beef?

He must of got my text.

Tell him we said "hey".

We put the K in Kwality

Mark Herzzzlick is not even hiding his homerism.

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

Yea earlier he referred to the BC side of the field as "our side of the field."

Using /s is for cowards.

Honestly feel OKAY about the defense so far. Several 2018 moments already, but they are stopping the run and they are getting stops.

That said, we have to figure out a creative way to get a pass rush if we can't get it from the DL. Any QB can look great without pressure.

Seriously, BC has done its only work on 3rd and long.

Offense really needs to start grinding out some 3rd downs or the D is going to wear down.

Is it basketball season yet?

If we had a run game, i'd be soooo happy.

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

Also wildly disappointed in our OL so far. Too soon to make a sweeping reaction, but this doesn't feel any different so far.

Foster has to start bringing some LB bliztes. This DL cannot produce ANY pressure.

Letting the QB sit in the pocket for 8 secs and wait for your CB to lose coverage ain't workin.

Maybe Bud thinks that this kid can't sit back there and beat us with his arm. He's already missed a couple of wide open throws.

Is it basketball season yet?

Not saying its the right call, but I think he is gambling on Brown not being good enough to make plays, so he is opting for more coverage. So far it looks like the secondary needs all the help it can get.

Where's the beef?

216-93 total yards. We are getting gashed but the defense is showing up when needed, but that can only last for so long.

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

Hope the offense can eat up some clock and score. Our DL already look tired after each play.

Sitting 3D row. Hewitt just barfed everywhere. It's hot, so hopefully he's good.

Game's making everyone sick.

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

I can't believe we're tied at 7 right now, feel like we've been terrible other than one offensive series.

We put the K in Kwality

I cringe when we have a team in third and 10 or more!!!

I thought I read this wrong. Then I realized how insanely accurate it is.

I'm not thrilled so far. Not surprised either.

Holy catch walk-on.

Where's the beef?

Willis got crushed there. Good poise.

Using /s is for cowards.

Nice catch, Kaleb!

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Willis is still locking in on his primary WR.

Is it basketball season yet?

Wow great catch by Mitchell!!

KeShawn King hit that hole really quick. He is far quicker than we have had back there in a long time

Robinson!

Is it basketball season yet?

ROBINSON HAS BEEN UNLEASHED

This BC announce crew has been quiet on this series

they looked much better that drive. Hoping the 1q was just 1st game jitters

TROB SIGHTING!!!

Sighting??!!

Announced his friggin presence.

We put the K in Kwality

Nice long drive and score. the defense should have had a chance to catch their breath

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I am impressed with the effort by the WRs so far. GO HOKIES!

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Tayvion with the veteran stretch for the TD

What a great drive!!
LET'S GO!!!

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

I'm feeling better about the passing game and structure. Offensive line play and running game have me worried.

Perhaps the passing game will open up the running game... maybe... please?

Where's the beef?

Holy cow! We #WRU baby!

"Tajh Boyd over the middle . . . and it's caught for an interception! Michael Cole, lying flat on his back, ARE YOU KIDDING???"

Is it basketball season yet?

TayRob has skillz!!!!

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

Anyone know where Hazelton is?

Apparently a lingering injury (hammy maybe?) from the preseason

Reported he has a nagging issue from camp. Can't tell you if he is able to play if needed though.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Looks like he isn't in on the two TE package. Tre and Tayvion seem to be the favorites, a Heze sighting or two, Kaleb Smith. No Haze yet.

EDIT: Injury. I lied.

Did you know and Willis are roommates?

We put the K in Kwality

wondering the same... has he been on the field? if so may just be double covered

Well I think it's pretty clear that the WR position is easily the strength of this team.

Using /s is for cowards.

I feel like I've never heard of half these receivers and they all look huge.

I hate our complete lack of a traditional run game, but Willis is a heck of a QB if he can be consistent. That was an NFL strike over the linebacker to Robinson.

757 is back

I honestly can't believe we're winning this game

They're trying to lose harder than we are.

We put the K in Kwality

Why the disbelief?

Where's the beef?

We are settling in. We really needed a warmup game before this.

Keshawn hitting the hole quicker than Galen Scott. We need that north-south.

hey, a pass rush

I believe the running game really struggles because of Willis' lack of ability to read the D. That play where Holston got crushed is just one example. If he could get better at that, i think the O really takes off.

As for the D, i think the lack of a pass rush is by design. As some have mentioned, Foster is betting on Brown D'ing himself. Hasn't worked on a couple of occassions, but i think most would have agreed with that strategy pre-game. The offense wasn't doing the D any favors in the first Q with all the 3 and outs.

Lack of 3rd down defense will get after ya

Where's the beef?

So no Garbutt, either? I'm just stunned by how much time this dude has to throw...

Nightmares of Heath Miller

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

Sigh... Our defense is not improved.

are we rotating our defensive players a lot more than usual?

Much. Also doesn't help we already have two injuries to safeties.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Our defense stinks

This D does not stink. Already its miles ahead of last year (gap integrity, physicality, swarming to the ball). BC has a good offense, and our D is still young.

Is it basketball season yet?

Maybe on the run game

Waller gotta make that tackle.

That was a good play by Dillon. Seemed like Reggie sold out more than he should have to the initial direction of the play

We're going to need to score a lot of points this year.

SLC

At least one more point.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Was Floyd out of position there? Wondering if he should've been covering the lane Dillon went through to score

I think it was Belmar who got sucked in (#8)

Is it basketball season yet?

yeah he crashing to seal the cutback along the LOS but got there too fast combined Dillon getting disrupted early and making that cutback deep in the backfield

We are lucky it's 14-14. The defense is not playing well at all. They are getting overpowered.

Not sure what game you're watching, but this is not a good take.

Is it basketball season yet?

Agree, run def has been pretty good so far. Pass rush and secondary is a project though.

Where's the beef?

The offense is going to have to win this game. The secondary is not giving me any confidence so far.

AJ dillon is wrong

Where's the beef?

Things I will miss about Bud Foster: many things.

Things I will not miss: small defensive linemen.

Real in-depth analysis of applesauce by this broadcast team right now.

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Anybody else accidentally bitch at Kumah about that drop?

Welp

3 and out, with a fumble. Offense is no better

And we tried to cheat! Okay, now I'm concerned.

Where's the beef?

ughhhh

Horrible protection, poor ball security by Willis. Absolute trash play.

yeah he fumbled it, but im also not surprised he did, he got lit up really badly.

77 just standing there watching

oh cmon

That play looked like old VT

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

You mean "current" VT?

Is it basketball season yet?

Not happy.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Well this isn't great.

Can't be disappointed if you never had positive expectations.

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Put Hooker in /s

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

Farley's redemption!

Where's the beef?

Unfortunately nothing about this team has demonstrated that they are significantly different than last year which is disappointing.

The 10-2 and 9-3 were overly optimistic. The easy schedule might get us to 7-5 but yea, really no better. Is there a reason we would be? It's basically the same team.

Let's Go...

I think the arguments were 'experience' and 'health.'

I back CJF, but what is going on that we are not improving, losing players. Waz up?

So much time, thank god Farley broke it up

Farley is making some plays, we need to clone him.

Garbage.

That don't look back for the ball DB move is killing us once again.

We put the K in Kwality

Been complaining about this for years. Im sure someone will come along soon to tout the success rate of the face guard tactic.

Where's the beef?

DBU

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

That was a great throw and catch...

Is it basketball season yet?

DBs stink.... this is going to be a LOOOOONG game/season

That was a perfect throw

Like I'm telling you that was absolutely flawless.

Absolutely beautiful. I'm not even mad at that one.

Agreed.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

. . . and not perfect defense at all . . . ugh.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

And a better catch

Well the fade works against us at least...

#thingsiblamethemvsfor

Our secondary is still trash

Waller couldn't cover Tom Brady on a fade route.

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

Well, another season of my interest in VT football waning

Hold on man. First game of the season. only down 7 in the first half. At least wait until early 4th qtr before you start losing interest in the whole season!

Where's the beef?

Honestly, I'm just bored at this point. The schedule is boring, the team doesn't look to have any improvement. Just not a lot to get excited about

BC is going to eclipse 400yards before half. There is very good reason to worry.

If we don't get any pressure, this QB is gonna keep looking like Tom Brady out there.

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

Corny needs to step up his game right now. BC has a very young and inexperienced defense, and from a talent perspective they can't match up.

Is it basketball season yet?

Jeremy Webb better come back cause Waller and Quillen are still fucking TRASH that don't belong on a power 5 depth chart

Fades and go routes continue to be a problem for us . Not good and zero pass rush .

Update: secondary picking up where they left off last year

We bad. I'm sorry friends. We are about to experience another season if mediocrity.

sol-a-rex

#adjustmentsplease

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

I'm not sure Cornelson knows how.

I'm not a coach obviously... I just find it hard to believe this is the best option at QB right now. Feels bad man.

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

I'm on beer # "i'll be happy with a winning record"

So are all the "segments" on players going to be about BC players?

Is it basketball season yet?

Still Jekyll and Hyde. This team looks around .500 right now.

Put. In. Hoo. Ker. πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½

If we give up points, we must score points; it's science.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

I hope all of ya'll throwing shade on the D right now are watching the pathetic display of offensive ineptitude that Corny is putting on the field right now.

Is it basketball season yet?

oh the suckage is a united team effort right now

Offensive issues are being highlighted because our D isn't giving them ANY room for error.

I agree. We are going to give up points this year; many; however, there is no reason why our talent on offense can't outscore most of our opponents. Hopefully Fu will put in the back-up OC sometime soon.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

3 and out... our offensive is consistent

I've seen 0 juice on defense. Absolutely 0

I don't like to weigh in on things during the game, but I'm afraid Vance Vice isn't as good of a coach as we think he is.

He's been the best recruiter on the staff, but he has not shown the ability to teach run blocking. He had the benefit of the Jerod Evans bulldozer making him look good in year 1, but since then the run game inside the tackles has been among the worst in the country.

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

I agree. He's a terrific recruiter, but the on field product is questionable.

So to summarize, Run D: B+/A-, Receivers: B+/A-, all other phases of the game...D/D-?

Let's Go...

receivers have had a few big catches, but over all its been trash. bad blocking, lots of bad hands on easy catches, a few good catches doesn't offset that.

Defense has already given up 330 yards. This is ugly. There is just no energy. No swarming the ball. No enthusiasm. Doesn't look good.

In good news, my three year old fell asleep. Don't have to listen to that anymore.

Yea but now you have to listen to these announcers.

Using /s is for cowards.

Still less annoying.

We are once again "ass my dude"

The offense is the problem right now. D is better than I expected...

Not great. But better than I expected.

So I guess our offense looked great facing our defense in practice. That's where the expectation for a good offense came from?

Yikes

Defense has given up 330 yards and that's good?!?

Game threads are toxic yikes

The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about turkey leg votes

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

so, we're not quite done with a half of football. I really hope we have some kind of adjustments at halftime because there has been no pressure on the BC QB and it means our already questionable DBs just have no chance.

Lets hope that the 3rd quarter goes better than it did last year.

Btw, pour some salt in the wound, Feaster had a pretty solid first half for USCe. Could have used him with our lack of a run game.

Let's Go...

Maybe Feaster saw our OL's run blocking.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

are you kidding me?

...and that's why I cringe on punt returns.

We put the K in Kwality

Blown punt receptions, wow that hurts

We're not a good team

what the fuck

How fucking hard is to to field a punt????????

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

LOL

lol. what a joke.

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

if that isnt hokie football, i dont know what is.

NBA!

Thank god for Reggie.

I'm at a loss for words.

Sigh. This could be it. UVA wins the basketball Natty, ends our 15 year streak, and wins the Coastal.

Let's Go...

How do I delete another person's comment? This hurts.

We need to get this seared into our brains because it is a very likely scenario

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

This SUCKS

Feels like 2018.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

We have all the right people in the locker room now............................................................................................................except the head coach and coaching staff

Unfortunately, it looks that way.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

This team just looks poorly coached or something.

No pass rush, no O line push, bad coverage, bad special teams.

Down 2 TDs this might be game over

LOL

That is some serious trash all-around this half. We gave them the ball in our territory twice.

So not to excuse away the field possession but without...dare I even say it..."fluke" esque plays, it's tied maybe?

Let's Go...

Yup, VT is no good at this football thing anymore.

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

We're a basketball school now.

Oof. I got nothing.

Where's the beef?

Welp. We are officially 2018 again. D going to continue to get gassed with the O doing nothing. This team looks totally defeated right now. Fuente isn't going to like the reporters on Monday morning.

Is it basketball season yet?

The 2018 team won 6 games. I'm not convinced this team can do that.

What the actual fuck was Belmar doing???

we're gonna get blown out

Lol just the first half y'all. Chill.

Mitch (2)

This is just straight up denial

Is it? Or is it an exclamation of realizing that we have a another one these to sit through?

If you play it, they will win.

As history has shown, we play MUCH better in the second half.

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

Do we?

Let's Go...

Insert Kristen Bell laugh-cry gif

Almost bet on this game cuz I was so confident we'd win...I'm glad I didn't trust myself.

I saw this article in the Roanoke Times that Fuente will have all cylinders firing now. Really?

Fuente clapping his hands let's go let's go. Yeah keep that up while you are about to get blown out.

Come on brother. Guy's job is to lead this team.

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

This team ain't any better.

Fuente doesn't have the answers at this level.

flirting with upvoting this...but would just ...feel...so...bad

Let's Go...

Sloppy sloppy play in every aspect

Just putting off the inevitable, but missed hold on the TE.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

So that Mike Young guy is recruiting pretty well am I right?

Using /s is for cowards.

It was official last year - we are a basketball school now.

While they do have twice the points, BC doesn't have twice the yards. #SilverLinings

It's like nothing has changed

Touchdown Tech!!!

Because nothing has changed. No energy. Lackadaisical play

welp. Looks like this is another season where our only goal is to keep the UVA streak going.

Glad to see the defense has improved

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

On a positive note, a loss today and we still control our destiny in the coastal! /s

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

Hate to say it but has Bud just taken the offseason off? All preseason to prepare for a team and this is the performance/effort they give?

Pretty apparent that NBA and storm is a brewin' was an attempt to sell tickets this year. If this keeps up, Fuente is coaching for his and Whit's job. Defense isn't good, but offense isn't what we were promised either.

Edit - also love the downvotes too. But Whit goes as Fuente goes. Not gonna get much love from donors spending tons of money on baseball when football is spinning in the mud. Truth hurts, but if this season goes south, donors are going to rise up.

Fuente was already coaching for his job. He's now coaching for his job beyond week 3.

Whit's job is beyond safe. The basketball hire gives me nothing but absolute confidence in him.

Fuente on the other hand...

Hard disagree. Appreciate all the gains in non-rev sports, but Fuente is clearly Whit's guy. He is tied at the hip.

Think it's time to totally forget the old guard and start over.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Really, we aren't even going to try right now?

Is it basketball season yet?

Are we going to see anything different from the coaches in the second half? Seriously, anything?

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

I cant be the only one that's noticed belmar running at 50% effort all game?

(add if applicable) /s

Not too upset about the defense, I didn't expect much from them. But the offense is really disappointing so far. I thought they would be really good. Hopefully they improve in the second half

dammit Holston down after a good run

Marching down the field at a good clip here.

Can someone give this team some turkey bacon at half?

Does Herzlick really have a mohawk?

Mohawk? Yes

Really? No

It seems like our 2 minute offense has been way better than our regular O since last year

Spoke too soon

My bad

Willis looks so awkward when he runs

Concerning 1st half for the d. It's hard to say that this team will clean up 'giving up 22 yards on an obvious screen pass' situation, or 'leaving guys so wide open that they can stop running and still catch the ball'. That's a lack of fundamentals which doesn't get fixed with tweaks. We'll see. It's still great to see the guys on the field.

"How you doin', Randy?"

Get Turner out. There's no reason to risk injury the way this is going.

Hate how prophetic this was.

If you play it, they will win.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used." -The BoD

3 turnovers in the first half. Never gonna win that way.

Where's the beef?

Not with this defense.

The telegraphing continues.

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

If he had waited for tavion to clear it's a TD

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

great

Where has hazleton been?

Seriously. Has he been in on a play or...?

Let's Go...
