Let's Go

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

HOKIES!!!

VT BSEE '98, VT MSME '01

Hoping it was just hearsay but has anyone else heard King was suspended for the game today?

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

Yes.

Ah shit. What happened?

Damnit I just talked to his aunt and uncle (football coach) Thursday night too.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Good thing McClease has been killing it. Disappointed that we havent seen King play in ages.

Cue up Dalton Keene again, I guess.

I don't know if he's been suspended. But he's been hurt for a while. Heard he tore his AC joint in his shoulder.

We put the K in Kwality

Heard he skipped out on practice and was late to another. Who knows...

Stick it in!!

Hard, smart, tough.

Let's Go Hokies!

Apparently no Bradburn today. That's gonna hurt us, dude has been borderline all-American this year. I say we just go with thick vick on anything close on 4th down

Thick Vick! That's gold! QP should switch to jersey number 77...you know, double the Vick

THICC Vick.

And double the Vick would be 14. /s

We put the K in Kwality

Why?

Groin injury on Thursday. Apparently dressed for warmups and gonna give it a go

So the needed cure is get first downs before we ever need to punt.

Go HOKIES!

Hokietopher representin in the Westgate sportsbook in Vegas.......got my Eddie Royal jersey on!

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

Does it still smell like 50 years of smoking without proper ventilation in there or have they sorted it out yet

Nope...doesn't smell at all....and thats from a guy who quit in april after 34 years.....

What it does smell like.....is a Hokies victory.......

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

So...what kind of odds did you get on the money line? +750?

+700

Stay strong, Topher. It's tough (12 years here) but definitely worth it.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

NBC is showing the Nats parade. Anyone know how that will affect Hokie coverage?

If it weren't Notre Dame, i'd be worried.

They'll show the game. Won't the parade be over by 2:30?

Edit: Ooops. The parade starts at 2 pm, and is likely the biggest party in Washington for a long time. You may want to consult streaming options if you're in the D.C. area as a backup if your local affiliate is covering the parade.

I'd think it would be hard for NBC not to cover the NBC game. Are you thinking of NBC, or NBC sports? My NBC guide says "Notre Dame vs VT". Looks like NBC Sports is covering the parade.

It won't.

So fucking confusing. I can't wait until cable is gone and I can just pick the game I want to watch regardless of where I'm watching it.

Twitter me

Does anyone know the XM channel? Driving once again through game time

These broadcasters are going to be the worst of all season, we are going to miss the quality of announcing espn brings.

Just go to a bar, that's what I'm doing

oh I'll turn off the sound and will have another game on the 2nd tv

Haven't really scanned the site this week so I don't know if this news is out there yet.

Hearing its going to be Quincy over Hooker, with a lot of Keene in the backfield. Trying to beat them down with a ball control, physical offense.

- "And now Miami wants to talk about it..."

I got you fam

and another Bitter tweet

and another edit: Bitter says John Parker Romo punting in warmups over Bradburn (groin)

Devon with ones interesting

Man to steal a line from the Men In Blazers we are certainly rolling with youth and gonna "play the babies".

Great week to rest injured players, get depth players snaps, and pull an upset before ACC play resumes!

VB born, class of '14

I've decided to play a drinking game by myself where I take a drink every time we suck. I'm hoping to end the game sober, but just in case we're awful I'll probably still be feeling great!

Championship thinking right here

I sure hope you're sober by the end but that's a pretty dangerous game to play with this team this year.

Is that sandman I hear?

edit: I'm an idiot

4 fingers in to a bottle of Wikd Turkey Rare Breed. No matter what happens on the field today I win

That wind is howling...

Like this swirling storm inside?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Man, it looks windy as all get out. After having trouble throwing the ball the bast few weeks, this should continue to hurt ND.

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

Brian Kelly sounded VERY confident

Is it basketball season yet?

WHOAH did anyone else hear "the always humorous ACC coastal" from the announcers. Mute button on hello Jon Laaser

Hokie Club member since 2017

I mean is he wrong? I've always like Tirico. He likely has to be a little biased but he is a solid PxP guy.

Shoutout to the referees for that one.

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

3 & out boys. LET'S GOOOO

Hilarious Farley play but great to get a 3 and out

Farley with the tackle coverage that confused everyone! Great work!

we're starting QP? damn how badly is Hooker injured?

Maybe see what else QP has in a non-ACC game?

Hokie Club member since 2017

I think we are just trying to play to ND weaknesses while allowing Hooker one more week to rest

Enough not to risk him in a non conference prayer game I suppose.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

Total guess, but if he's not 100% then why not give him another week when we're back in conference play.

stick it in, stick it in, stick it in!

Yeah since this game is house money, no need to risk injury to Hooker if he's not 100 percent yet. We need him down the stretch to win the division. I like throwing QP into the fire and seeing what he's got. We really have nothing to lose here.

Eh, I'll chalk that up to warming up and adjusting to the cold weather but we had two guys with windows for 1st down throws there.

At least when you watch a ND game, they don't even pretend to be unbiased.

They don't get paid to be unbiased lol

Isn't NBC the NotreDame Broadcasting Channel?

Honesty, Mike Tirico is way better than anything we are getting on ACCN. And I know he will be biased because it's ND's network so it doesn't bug me.

Get Angry, Bud!

Yikes. Not gonna be able to run on this ND team like we did against UNC with QP. Gotta open the playbook a little more if they're gonna go with Quincy.

Another ND lineman banged up. That could make a huge difference for us, their OL is usually the strength of their team

I really hate the idea that this game is meaningless because we can still win the ACC Coastal and get run out of Charlotte by Clemson. This team, and particularly this staff, needs a big boy, statement win. No one we have left on the schedule is that.

Yeah good point. Kind of puts it in perspective when playing a team that chooses not to even play in a conference

Hokie Club member since 2017

I don't think this game is meaningless, but I also don't think it's worth risking the coastal, the bowl streak, or the commonwealth cup just to get one signature win. I'm okay with the coach's decisions to rest recovering players.

Twitter me

Too much time

Going after Farley is an interesting strategy, but it looks to be working, albeit doesn't look sustainable.

ND backup to backup OL is 6'7 307. Our D-line and On-line will sure get tested today. I hope to be proud of the boys

Hokie Club member since 2017

Dax in coverage has an int?!?! The hell?

Fuck. Yes.

DAXXXXXXX!

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

LETS GO DAX!!!!

Dax got a fax

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

Way to go Dax!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

DAX!!

Dax makes a play in coverage...positivity

Dax couldn't believe that ball came to him

LETS GOOOOO DAXXX!!!!!

Even on PI

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

Turner getting mugged on that deep pass

Yeah I thought so too

Hokie Club member since 2017

Looked like a lot of contact to me, but it may just be mutual hand fighting

Well it clearly looks like, despite his wonderful touchdown pass against UNC last week, QP has a bit of work to do when it comes to throwing the ball

I thought it was a good looking pass to Turner

Hokie Club member since 2017

How was that not PI?

The replay looked like he got there at the same time.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

If by same time you mean early then I agree

Not liking the offensive game plan so far

Did the defender not get there early on Robinson?

VERY early in my opinion

Listening to Tirico and Flutie on this broadcast is painful. Makes ACCNet seem amazing.

We better open the fucking playbook or we're gonna get shit on. ND is gonna put up points

Whew, glad that wasn't picked off.

D gonna have some work cut out for them. Short field.

We are going to get boatraced if QP is this limited in playbook. We are NOT going to manhandle ND with a bunch of sophomore and freshman blockers

not a great punt

2 blatant PI calls missed and our play calling is expectedly conservative (๐Ÿšฎ)

Is having our RB turned TE turned RB carry the ball conservative, aggressive, or other?

Hokie Club member since 2017

Desperate.

They're gonna throw like a million times.

Offense looks completely hopeless. I can't wait to see the French review of what ruined the inside running game this particular week.

Safeties are getting torched by TE's

Ashby's fault

It's not the only play we've seen Floyd or Deablo trailing behind.

Our Safeties are liabilities in the Passing game

They're going to exploit that all day

Ashby... bit and left their biggest RZ target uncovered

Not on Ashby. That was Deablo's man & he let him run right past him

Deablo. Bruh.

VB born, class of '14

Ashby

Took the RB. Safety.

VB born, class of '14

Nope, bit on play action abandoning his underneath coverage over the middle. Ashby

Our safeties are garbage. So many blown coverages by Floyd & Deablo this season

Hmm, well lets just get a first down. Baby steps.

They are really attacking the secondary early. This could turn into a blowout early if the offense doesn't do something.

Is it basketball season yet?

If Ashby is underneath there like he should be he has no throw. Deablo had outside shade

Offense has to show up. ... Kinda wish Hooker were out there, man.

It's all good though, got faith in my boy Quincy.

Deablo's gonna make me drunk

Pollard in on at least 3 snaps

Smart football play there by wheatly.

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

I just want a few first downs on offense. I'm not expecting to win, just want to see some progression

Wheatley out here exploiting rules for field position...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Wow, that was smart.

Is this really our fucking game plan? Jesus Christ

I just picture CJF and Corny "let's catch them off guard and out QP in there and run the ball and control it"

ND's DC: Sell out on the qb run and hand off make him beat us with his arm....

Hokies offensive staff: speechless after multiple 3 and outs

3 & out seems to be the game plan today.

Is it basketball season yet?

Offense looking rough so far.

Cornelson has nothing...looks like a long day.

Plz, let him throw.

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

we can't keep just running up the middle, fuck let QP throw

I think QP has the potential for a very bright future; however, if Hooker is healthy enough to dress out he should be playing.

ND is playing with 5 DL, daring QP to beat them passing....this isn't going well

How many points will we spot them before Willis gets thrown in to chuck it desperately

My guess is infinity. I dont think we are going to see RW again.

Ok we need to seriously open up the offense if we keep QP in. It's entirely predictable right now. We have to let him throw it around some.

Can we please for the love of god.. OPEN UP THE PLAYBOOK

Dude won a 6 OT game making crucial throws. Still won't let him throw. WTF?!!!

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

2 weeks of preparation to keep calling inside runs to nowhere. We had a bye week before this shit.

Today has reminded me how frustrated I am with our offensive coaching staff; specifically their inability to come up with anything creative. We all know that QP is inexperienced; however, do our coaches really think what they are doing is going to work?

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

Terrible things happen to us every off season and bye week. Therefore, we must play every Saturday all year long.

I support this

Yes throw

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

This is looking predictable. ND is making it look easy on these throws

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

Buckle up boys. It's gonna be a looooong afternoon

I approach this game knowing that ND is really a lot better than us. They're bigger stronger faster and more experienced across the board. Challenging QP will be nice, but probably won't look great. Hope for not a blowout but today is about growth, not victory.

Ugh that was a bad throw

If punt block had been on we could have gotten one. Guess we're not taking any risks

Hokie Club member since 2017

Tre has looked like shit today. Not easy catches but if you get 2 hands on it make the damn catch

Yeah pick up your QB making his first start against huge favorites

Hokie Club member since 2017

Man QP showing us that accuracy we've been hearing about

Quincy Patterson has not had a good start throwing in this game.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Patterson clearly is lacking in the passing game.

The people yelling for QP to throw are starting to see the truth.

I'll give it until at least half time before I can say the truth. Confidence is low for sure right now though

Hokie Club member since 2017

Ladler playing good assignment football

VB born, class of '14

Plz, let him throw

Plz, let him keep running.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Corny needs to give QP a screen for confidences sake, just see the ball caught

VB born, class of '14

This. Yes he's not been accurate. But for the love of PBR give him an easy throw.

Ladler has had a few good weeks. Hopefully he's turned a corner.

Upside, defense is playing well so far.

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

Defense has really stepped up so far. Only score was off a VERY short field from a terrible punt. Need something from the offense here with good field position

We're getting chances...

0-6 on throws now.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Alright... so do we keep qp in or put hooker in now because qp isnt throwing it and they have the run on lock...

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

Laze tweeted that Willis warmed up with the 2s. So Hooker is probably not 100% and probably worth saving for ACC play.

Catch the ball!

Hokie Club member since 2017

QP isn't polished, but our receivers haven't helped either.

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

that should've been caught

Nice to Hazleton! It still wasn't a great throw. I think we might be better off with Willis at the moment.

Great call on 3rd down there.

So QP is good on 4th down throws.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

This is fucking embarrassing.

My 5 years old called that 3rd down QB run

Receivers really not helping QP so far today

There we go!!! Great back shoulder throw & adjustment by Hazelton. We really need the WR's to make plays today

A lot of footballs hitting hands today

Hokie Club member since 2017

Your WRs gotta make a play sometimes too

TD Hazleton!

Love the aggressiveness on that drive!!

Catch. The. Ball.

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

Confidence.

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

We're getting the breaks so far!!

The game has no rhythm! Weird.

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

Glorious. QP's been close with these throws and the WRs have had some balls in their hands (tee hee). Knew we'd see some catches getting hauled in.

Good stones to go for it on 4th down, pays off!

VB born, class of '14

Oh man, we really needed that TD to take some pressure off and give QP a confidence boost.

Well good news is....if we drive down the field Johnson just filled me with confidence that he's going to nail a kick when called on. /s

DL is generating pressure but they can't get him down so far. Come on boys we need another stop!

We were very lucky to get the calls on that drive. I will take lucky.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

How did Ashby miss that sack?

Who knows if we can win the game but there's fight on both sides of the ball. They've kept the boys' heads in the right place, for whatever that's worth.

Impressed with DL play so far. Garbutt has looked particularly good this game.

Sooo...who misses Joey Slye? Cuz our kicker cant even kick extra points...

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

I miss Jordan Stout

VB born, class of '14

We Bama now!

Notre Dame is way better than us but we're tied after 1. I'm considering that a small victory

Hewitt was so close there. Damn he shot out of a cannon

God Ashby looks slow as hell today

We ain't playing the coastal today

VB born, class of '14

Great play call by ND there.

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

DL has to feel that screen coming. Yikes

Tisdale has to be more aware of the seal block as well. He looked clueless

Yea. That was a well executed screen by ND. The DL did not see that one coming at all.

โ€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!โ€

Tisdale been caught out a bit on this drive.

They've got to get Ashby help in situations like that. Book is apparently too fast and evasive in the open field. Ashby is so strong in other elements of his game but that's a poor matchup.

D gap blitz and spy the Sam LB maybe unless it's dax

Hokie Club member since 2017

Why can't our coaches come up with simple passes like that help our QB?

Oh right cause we don't have a D1 coordinator

The lack of creativity, even simple things like checkdowns, is really frustrating with our offense.

Nope we prefer 4th and Hazelton

Agree, short route still gain yardage and would help Q get more comfortable. If he could have an RPO, he would be more of a threat.

Well so much for keeping the momentum. What an awful drive by the defense there

ND has that red zone RPO working to perfection...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Belmar is being held on almost every pass play, and its not even close.

Is it basketball season yet?

Overall I feel great. I feel pretty confident that if hooker wasn't hurt, this angry notre dame team would have just tied the game or brought it within 7. Really please with the fight the team is showing today.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

We're losing the TOP so far. This explains the difference in the score.

Where is Conner today? Haven't seen him at all

Stay aggressive, boys. Keep pushing. Keep it close and maybe we can break through next quarter.

I dont see us consistently moving the ball on O today. The D is about to get gassed, and this is gonna be a rough 2nd half

Turner got mugged there

Alright offense. Let's respond

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

Wow turner gets mugged for the second time. What the fuck?

I'm team QP but a closer pass would have helped sell the flag

Hokie Club member since 2017

Wow. How do you not throw a flag there?

Is it basketball season yet?

Finally throws easy pass. Robinson drops.

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

God QP is getting screwed by our receivers

Turner gets abused and no PI then a dropped ball. This is not Cornelsons fault on this drive

Is it sleeting?

Receivers are dropping a lot today. Wonder if the cold is affecting that.

Where is Bradburn?

Groin injury apparently

JESUS CHRIST CATCH THE BALL FOR GODS SAKE

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

The offense has gone three and out on all but one drive, the defense will wear down and continue to wear down at this rate.

We got 30 yards of penalties on our TD drive. Need more from this offense.

The only thing we really seem to have is the QP run, and they seem to be on to that.

If the passing game doesn't work, we can't open up the run possibilities.

ND 21-7 here. Offense isn't doing shit & defense is gonna get gassed

Drops remind me of LT's receivers against Alabama.

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

Can we stop with the stone hands today? Some of these drops would be confidence builders for Quincy in addition to the obvious part about gaining yards.

Refs missed the obvious PI that might have changed that drive.

Can't blame the offense for that.

And TR drops an easy pass that would have given us 3rd and about 5. Tough luck on that drive.

Is it basketball season yet?

Disagree. Terrible missed call but if Robinson catches on 2nd down, QP likely picks up the first on his 3rd down scramble

Sure. But doesn't make the comment wrong. Would have had the first on that one play.

Radio saying sideline message from WR coach is to catch the ball. No surprises there

Hokie Club member since 2017

Once again I'm unable to stream, and there aren't TVs with cable or broadcast here at work. Watching gamecast and reading this, it sounds really bad. QP needs to hit some throws or we need to (I can't believe I'm saying this) think seriously about rotating QP and RW (assuming HH really cannot play).

Hard, smart, tough.

Stalled offense is much more on the shit play by WR's than QP

There is enough blame to go around. The receivers have dropped balls and the qb has missed throws.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Tisdale having his worst game so far

Huge stop by the D there. Definitely thought ND was gonna score

Defense is playing well! Offense is close but not quite fully clicking still.

Not doing the little things well on O. Sounds easy enough to fix but it's easier said than done

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

We're in the game despite the stats. Need to put something together here.

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

Need a drive here, just so the D can breathe for a minute.

Hard, smart, tough.

The receivers are not helping outside of Hazelton today

No, they are not.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Man these receivers are not helping QP gain confidence.

Passing game is clearly struggling. That miscommunication on third and 3 was brutal

3rd & 3 with man to man & kaleb runs a freaking fade. Come on man, WR's are KILLING US

That needed to be a QP run so we can just get a first down. I HATE that call given what we are doing to our defense so far.

Well the great thing about QP and HH is that they can turn any pass play into a run play. Not saying he should have tucked it and ran there but they can if they need to.

โ€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!โ€

They seem to be queued in on the QP runs.

None of it works without at least some passing threat.

QP needs to be on the same page as the WRs. Do they have the same playbook? They sure are making it look hard.

UUUGGGGHHHH 3 and out

Hard, smart, tough.

Nothing positive to say about that drive.

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

6/7 three and outs. I don't wanna hear it when the defense eventually caves. This is bullshit.

Agreed. Offense has to help the defense out

Hokie Club member since 2017

Honestly can't lay all of the blame on Cornelsen right now. He isn't calling plays that compensate for a steady stream of dropped balls because those don't actually exist.

Floodgates are gonna open here soon

This is the worst display of offense I've seen in some time. Defense will wear down. It will be awful in the 2nd half if we cant keep the defense off the field.

TN_Hokie

Defense deserves a better offensive performance with the effort they're putting forth today

Wtf camera angle are they using right now? It's terrible whatever it is

โ€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!โ€

Our defense can only hold so long

Danny is always open
23 can't read

Someone DO SONETHING AAHHHH... ND is keeping us in the game...now take advantage

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

Another great stand by the defense. These poor boys just need a rest.

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

Both of these teams stink. Would've liked to see us closer to full power.

The defense is keeping us in this...the offense has to sustain a drive

It hasn't been pretty but the defense has held up well,

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Yeah its windy, but these are just two mediocre teams

VB born, class of '14

Has the camera work been this bad the whole time and I'm just noticing this now?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Whats up with this camera angle?

Is it basketball season yet?

Notre dame uses the sky cam for plays starting this year. It was really poorly received for obvious reasons, so it seems they have went away from it for the most part until now.

You can see the obvious, jarring difference in the quality of the broadcast when they use it. Pretty sure it was Brian kellys idea.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Grimsley plus targeting!

Usually when it gets too windy they must change to safer camera angles.
Note: this is a concept that Notre Dame does not practice.

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

Great throw & catch. We'll take the targeting too!

Great throw by QP there. Incredible catch by HEZZY to hold on during that bad hit.

The hit on QP is more a targeting foul than the hit on Grimsley

Is it basketball season yet?

I think that's the right call on picking up the targeting flag.

Interesting... fine with that reversal but they better be consistent with that call

So...... where is McClease today? 3 carries so far???

Hard, smart, tough.

Radio guys completely baffled by the targeting reversal

Hokie Club member since 2017

Not sure why. By definition, it was a clean hit.

Is it basketball season yet?

Looks like head-to-head contact, but no targeting. Is there a possible penalty for head-to-head if it was called correctly?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

So the key to targeting is to hit the player in the helmet with your face?

Interesting.

Yes actually. Much lower chance of neck injury when you tackle face up. You're taught to keep your head up, more dangerous for both parties when you put it down.

Did... Did they just run the same exact running play twice?

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

Are you fucking kidding me. QP finally driving & we get a dumbass penalty

Huge mental error lining up there. FUCK. That's so avoidable

That's a fucking terrible call... Hazelton was off!

They keep drawing the line and they don't match up.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Let them play!

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

Ineligible downfield is a pox on the college football house

I'm guessing no PI calls are happening today...

Is it basketball season yet?

Anyone notice the cameramen suck for a National network?

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

That seems like a really silly technical foul to me

Its huge if the defense is reading keys.

Is it basketball season yet?

He wasn't lined up with the ball on my screen.

VT getting robbed on that one.

Isn't the line of scrimmage where the ball is?

Time for Fired Up Fuente in South Bend!

I don't even understand why that's a rule

Then you don't understand football. It tells the defense who is eligible and who isn't.

Is it basketball season yet?

I simply mean does making a guy step a few inches back really the most effective way to do that?

I understand it's a rule, just a silly one, especially as Flutie mentioned the NFL let's guys get away with that all the time

Both guys had their heads at the "butt" of the tackle/TE (I can't remember if we had a TE lined up), that means both guys were "on the LOS. So if you are a LB/CB you recognize that the inside guy is not eligible and that you should be looking for a route from the outside WR or a run (b/c the inside guy is clearly a blocker). It tells those guys a ton.

Is it basketball season yet?

Well...

God fucking damnit

Wow

Fuck us. What a joke.

Good God.

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

TOs will get after ya

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

Well there goes any chance we had of tying before the half.

This didn't age well

This freakin team sometimes

Beating ourselves on that drive.

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

No chance of winning this game with this offense.

We look sloppy, ill coached and undisiplined. This fumble is unacceptable

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

We look like we're using our third string QB.

He's no longer 3rd string when the 2nd string is healthy on the sideline

Which one is the second string? The third string is now the first string and the first string is now the second or third string depending on the previous second strings health.

Wait what?

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Do you think Hooker is healthy?

We may need him.

^this

God is a hokie during football season...that's why the leaves turn maroon and orange!!!

The way Fuente reacted and with a little lip reading it seems as though they practiced that illegal formation

Hokie Club member since 2017

That fumble was a late snap into a jet sweep, I'm surprised it didn't hit Turner coming around.

โ€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!โ€

I feel like Nd should be up 42

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

HOW IS THAT NOT INTENTIONAL GROUNDING

Grounding call?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Every fucking time.

Game changer. I guarantee it.

Why is that not intentional grounding?

I feel like we're getting dogged by the refs.

That isn't grounding?

Our last drive is the type of drive that will lose a game for ya.

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

That, and refs being on the take.

They need to get their heads in the game.

Notre Dame getting every benefit of the doubt.

My guys are fucking savages on the field๐Ÿ˜‚

Throw that Bob Marley wannabe motherfucker outta here. Maynard James Keenan. 1991

We're not helping ourselves but these refs have been VERY questionable so far. Good lord

A TD here and the game is over (or more certainly than it was before)

That spot was.... generous. not a first down.

Hate to make the Ref excuse, but it has been a good while since I've seen a game as one-sided as this.

Not sure how they don't at least review that spot on the "first down"

I don't know if these refs are biased but they sure are bad.

The definition of biased is bad in favor of one team.

Which so far seems to be the case.

But maybe it's just bad luck.

We've had a few gifts like the non-holding call on Farley in the first drive

Radio guys saying Fuente still arguing the illegal formation during the commercial break

Hokie Club member since 2017

In spite of what the commentators said, Turner was a yard behind the line of scrimmage on my screen (looking at the hashmarks).

And so was Hazelton. They both had their heads on the "butt of the tackle" who was 1/2 a yard of the LOS. It was an accurately called penalty.

Is it basketball season yet?

Off the line means lining up in the backfield. Lining up in the backfield is 2 yards or more off the line. Anything closer is considered "on the line" of scrimmage.

Edit: to further clarify, they were both one year behind the line of scrimmage, or in the eyes of the officials, "on the line" of scrimmage.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Oh.

You see this sometimes bite you in the ass with linemen "lining up in the backfield", which means they are more than 2 yards of the line.

We all know the o line is supposed to line up on the los, and if you look again haze was lined up pretty close to where the tackles were.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

The way Fuente is arguing I don't think it was over one yard and I don't think he thinks that's the rule to apply (right or wrong I don't know) but we will find out more after the game. Radio guys wondering if he had already had that formation run by officials

Hokie Club member since 2017

Totally agree. Loved how the tv crew drew their yellow lines (incorrectly) to prove the officials right. Poor officiating.

"Great protection all day".... haha. he's been on the run all day.

Is it basketball season yet?

Ashby is so fucking unathletic

Ashby oooooof

Taunting much?

Am in enemy territory and everyone hated me going ape shit on that TD.. good times

Who knew the Hazelton fumble was just a setup for the Notre Dame fumble-recovery-touchdown?

What a cool way to end the half.

3D chess right there

-They're letting QP throw more this game but he's missing throws and also the WRs have dropped some catchable balls. At least they haven't shied away from throwing because of that. I'd like to see them get him so easy throws though. It seems like most of them are all deep shots

-Corny needs to get McClease and Keene involved more with the run game. Its way too predictable with Patterson. Plus it looks like he's calling his own number too much on some of the reads so maybe just switch to handoff plays instead of reads.

-This officiating crew is garbage. They've missed blatantly easy calls on both teams.

Holy Fucksticks

Need the offense to come out and scheme some open easy throws for QP and get some offense going. The TE misdirection stuff against Miami was great to ease Hooker into the game.

Man, this Nats Parade is awful. The speakers are a snoozer clown show. Bummer after that awesome 98 yard fumble six. Can we go back to the game please? Jesus.

Question: when was our last defensive score? I legit don't remember

had a punt block TD against UVA last year.

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

Looks like the last true defensive score was in 2017. Stroman, Walker, and Floyd all had defensive TDs.

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

Let's not forget the stuff by Floyd the play before the fumble return!

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

Come out and establish the same suite of runs from the UNC games. Positive yardage on early down to get Quincy some rhythm and confidence.

Lmao our offense has been so bad. That comparison was brutal. We are fortunate to be 14-14, time to capitalize on that fortune and pull the upset with a better second half effort.

I'm really happy that I got to watch Brian Kelly give both a pre-game and halftime speech.

/s

"Character will win out."

So...

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Fuente "Our defense is keeping us in the game". Who thought the defense would be getting praise after last year's team.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Hazleton can't be stopped today

That last play of the first half was a 14 point shift in score.

That's huge.

PASS THE BALL TO TUCKER DAMON

Would be nice to be able to get Patterson out of that QB power when there are 6 guys on the LOS for the D.

Is it basketball season yet?

We keep getting calls. The gods see doing us favors

Almost another ineligible receiver downfield on that long pass play. Gotta watch where they're lining up!

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I know that body language from Tre, that's a lower back injury. Hope it's minor

Terrible play call in third down

Agreed.

That should have been some kind of pass.

Or at least somebody else carrying it.

We throw deep to the far side of the field on 3rd and 2 and run the QP power on 3rd and 7. Sounds about right...

3rd and 6. What an awful playcall.

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

Corny on 3rd down is not good.

Just too obvious

Corny is not good.

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

Patterson doesn't seem to be running with the same authority that he ran with against UNC

Is it basketball season yet?

ND's line is much better than UNC's and they've been keyed in on the QP run.

This. We need a passing game to have a running game.

This is Notre Dame, not UNC... ND actually plays defense.

Cornhole played for the FG attempt.

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

Guys our kicker hit a 40+ Yard fg....#hope

And the Hokies take the lead! 17-14

You mean a position with Hooker right?

I hope that he was in the endzone....a big difference between starting at the 2 and 20...

Me, too, but any is better than Notre Dame possession.

How was that not a touch back

Of course they spot that shit at the 2 instead of a touchback

What a terrible spot!!!!

EDIT: How has this happened to us twice this season? That was a seriously egregious call.

Is it basketball season yet?

Wow. That's bullshit

Ah fuck

Let's have a quarter and a half long TD drive.

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

Okay I'm on the "refs are biased" train. That spot is awful.

I've never seen so much complaining about a VT takeaway.

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

It's because it was such an amazing and athletic play he deserves the correct call. We are all PUMPED for him

Hokie Club member since 2017

How can that spot be wrong?

After all, the homer ND commentator agrees.

I think that's actually the right call? They give you the ball where the catch is made instead of where your momentum takes you...meaning the end zone in this case?

You're supposed to get the end zone in that scenario.

EDIT: I've seen guys catch it at the 3 yard line and get the touch back.

No way he had possession at the 2yd line.....these refs have been calling bogus calls all game....

QP with the big run after the defense bites on McClease.

Tre turner has just been awful today. Dude can't get separation at all

I'm not sure he's healthy. At least he doesn't appear to be.

Is it basketball season yet?

He's also playing a very good DB, but he has definitely had some chances.

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

That's because ND DBs are tugging on his jersey right as he jumps to make a ply on the ball. It's happened a couple time today. I think having some better thrown balls coming his way would help too.

Weird, the refs decided to overrule their initial gut instinct to screw us again and actually placed Haze's catch in the right place

DLine has come to play today...

Hell of a stop by the defense on that series. Let's go offense!!

Refs, in huddle: "Hey, guys, we can't cheat 'em that bad. Let's give 'em three yards back on the spot, and maybe they'll be satisfied. We'll get them back somewhere else."

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

This has been the defenses best performance in two seasons

17 ate his wheaties this morning

Hokie Club member since 2017

Why are they holding on a fair catch?

The only person who knows its a fair catch is the guy catching the ball.

Is it basketball season yet?

It would be great if the offense could generate another score with the wind at its back.

Is it basketball season yet?

QP is working and looking better....but I think we're up 10-14 points with Hooker. The early first half probably isn't a 3 and out fest and that might be enough. I'm really not impressed with Notre Dame.

It hurts not having Hooker out there. We're winning this because of defense, which is not what I would have expected.

Holding on a fair catch. When the fair catch happens, the penalty should be void. Just my opinion.

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

Deablo is really giving the Catholics some problems.

Now we need the offense to give them some problems by putting some more points on the board.

Not enough love for this post right here

Win or lose, I'm really proud of this group of kids today!

Sure, but I mean...let's win right?

Why do you throw first two downs & then run? Why not use QP's size in the red zone?

Because that's what they're expecting, and they're all over it.

I do not like that play calling...pass, pass, run?

Jerod had a tendency to make that play call look genius. But I tend to agree, that 3rd down play should have been the second down play.

Can't settle for the FG there....ND has the wind this qrt...

I think I would've gone for another run play there instead of passing. Eat up more clock.

eating clock in a 1 score game? Seems......a little overly optimistic

The designed QB run was INCREDIBLY obvious

THAT'S A SAFETY

You can blame the playcalling there, but if the throw is a little bit better, one of those is a completion.

They double choppin?

Hey refs that's what it looks like when you catch the ball on the 2 yd line

Exactly. If you are going to call it that way then be consistent

Hokie Club member since 2017

Safety !!!!

1 yard line. Be consistent.

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

If Deablo's INT wasn't a touchback, that's a safety.

Wow, unbelievable

That's a safety

I wish we had score a TD but we are up by 6 in the fourth quarter. If anyone had suggested we would be leading in the 4th quarter against ND, I think that the Hokie nation would say, "I'll take it.'

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I don't get this.

Our guy was ruled down on the two yard line. Their guy gets to walk it back to the end zone?

Consistency, please.

HOW IS THAT PLAY ANY DIFFERENT THAN DEABLO'S INTERCEPTION?! THAT'S BULLSHIT!!

But he took a knee in the end zone after NOT calling for a fair catch?

Dax... we had a 3 & out inside their own 10 how the fuck do you let him get that first down. Jesus Christ

Why not bring pressure on 3rd and long.....man we needed a 3 and out....

Pretty sure the tackle moved there. Officials having a totally putrid afternoon.

After further review. I was caught by the cameras trying to give 25 yards to Notre Dame...

Now they're gonna fucking call targeting on us & confirm it. Such bullshit
