LETS GO!

HOKIES!!!

LET'S GO!!

HOKIES!!

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

201 pushups last weekend, guessing we will need more points based on all the players out on D this week. Let's Go

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

Just saw the end of the Pitt-NC State game. NC State came from a score back and beat Pitt in the waning seconds, NC State used a different QB, but it makes our win look a bit better and Narduzzi took a loss. It is a great way to start the day.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

hahahaha EAT $*%# PITT...Nardouche gonna be salty tonight

With the players out today, I'll be happy with a win of any kind.

EJ Manuel just said that Divine Deablo has been a leader offensively and defensively ...

He did go to free shoes, not the brightest bulb...

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

So our top 4 corners are out....neat.

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

Mark Richt really is something.

He's on something surely

Fuck Pat Narduzzi

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

Mark Herzlich... The only football announcer worse than Phil Simms... SMH

Is coronavirus over yet?

Not great bob.

God the ACCN "Huddle" is painful

Do we have any The Key Players out today due to COVID?

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

Either I have COVID, or this broadcast does.

I actualy got a negative test result back today, along with my wife and daughter as well. 3 for 3.

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

I'm having some difficulty breathing. Got a test today, will find out in the next few days. Hopefully allergies or something.

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

Let us know what you find out?

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

Tested negative. I think I had a reaction to the furnaces being turned on in my apartment.

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

Walk on Matheny starting.

He got an interception later. That has got to put him on a mountain top

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

So, is the broadcast freezing up on their end...or just my hulu?

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

Mine, too, in Florida.

Mine is too in NY. WTF Hulu??

Must be ACCN.

The NC State game looked fine.

I take that back, not sure what the problem is.

Working fine on Sling for me

"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

Hulu don't fail me now.

Might have to do a sling free trial...

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

This shit is gonna make me lose my mind

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

Of course - no issues with the ads...

Yep, at least the commercials are working

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

Wait, seems to be working now

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

No issues with YouTubeTV

The one thing I wanted to watch this week.

With some many out on the defensive side of the ball, the plan may be to run, run, run. We had good success last week with that, let's hope it works again.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

What's happening to the quality of this broadcast?

Does the broadcast have COVID, too?

true frosh Dorian Strong starting at corner.

PBU #1

Herzlich - "Good to see Duke run the ball early"...on a 1 yard loss

So we not gonna have them for next game either basically?

Mitch (2)

This was my thought as well. Are we gonna be 20+ players short versus UNC?

Is coronavirus over yet?

Dang!

T Rob gotta hold onto that.

There's 1000 meals to force the punt!

Love that play call, DB made a play

Jesus Christ Robinson

What the hell Tavion...

Very cool.

C'mon Tayvion. Muffed one last week as well.

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

What a dumb play

Tavyon is having a ridiculously bad game already

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Annnnnd here we go....

Is coronavirus over yet?

Belmar seems to be living rent free in the Duke backfield today. .

What an enormous blunder.

Holy shit.

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

Robinson has no hands today

Did that actually happen

Mitch (2)

If you are sprinting backwards to catch the ball, STOP and let it go; please.

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

Making Freshman Stroman look like an all american kick returner there.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Not too early to turn it around. Let's get it.

Yakity sax

"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

That's it. Fuck Coach Cut, we need to blast these losers. Unbelievable.

That's a high school level mistake. Let the ball go at that point. And you just cost us a touchdown. Well done

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Worse than high school level if we're being honest.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I'm not looking at #83 the rest of the day if I'm Fuente. Two awful plays

At least bench him for a couple series. Those were two bad, BAD mistakes. The drop probably cost us points and the muff literally gifted them a TD. He's created at least a 10 point swing already.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Who is our backup punt returner? Might need to put him out there.

Nah, not yet. He definitely messed up, but our return game increased significantly once he was put in last year. Give him a chance to turn it around.

two weeks...two fumbles

Nope. He was awful last game as well. Can't risk those plays. Next man up.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Ah that's the team I remember.

We always like to spot the other team 7, particularly when we're short on personnel.

You know, to keep it interesting.

Yikes.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Zero reason for Robinson to see the field the rest of this game. Already two enormous mistakes less than 5 minutes into the game

We're short on personnel, but I agree.

Somebody can go ahead and give Robinson a ride back to the Burg, he's clearly not needed in Durham.

He's done that over shoulder shit too many times. Shibest should have shut it down a long time ago.

Let's all remember that we had almost no mistakes last week after an extremely limited Fall camp. We are due some mistakes along the way. It's a long game and TR is still a true sophomore.

We good fam.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Robinson has looked really bad in punt return to start the season.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Jeez, tough crowd in here today. Two bad plays no doubt, but Tayvion is one of our better players both on and off the field. Bend his ear a little bit, than pat him on the butt. We're gonna need him before the days done.

I'm fine with him getting more snaps at WR but no chance that I put him back out for a punt return. He can prove himself by catching a pass but no team can risk a 50% muff rate on punt returns.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Yeah, I'd agree with that.

This comment aged well.

Wasting good defensive stops and already behind. Not a good start when short handed on defense.

Well shit

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Sweet - we won the Belk bowl last year.

This camera angle is super weird.

Need more Quincy

Are we gonna see Hooker?

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

Por favor Fuente?

Even Bradburn letting us down. SMH

34-5 yards...and we're losing

Burmeister is not a good passer

it's not exactly wrong...Robinson isn't helping him out tho...lots of drops already

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Now we know who Tyler Matheny is!

WALK ON INTERCEPTION!!!!

Damn we needed that pick

DBU

MATHENY TIME.

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

Loves me some walk-ons!!!!!

We put the K in Kwality

Well that play was just bad all around from Duke.

But I'll take it

DBU!!!!!

Matheny runs like Gump lol

Hahaha that was hilariously slow

Who? Let's go!

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

Fairfax VA represent-in!

We put the K in Kwality

We need an official time on Matheny's 40-yd dash

Still timing....

We put the K in Kwality

Play calling is hard

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

WALK ON!!!

Need a score following this turnover

VB born, class of '14

Need some points off this turnover.

Get the friggin play in! Faked the snap with 19 second on the play clock then just stared at the sideline until we had to take a TO.

We put the K in Kwality

Stupid mistakes and penalties.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Well at least we aren't FSU.

Please, please, please let Jax St beat them. That's all I want for Christmas

We put the K in Kwality

Where is the Oline from last week?

Dukes d line is just a little bit better than NCSU. Get dipped and check out french's preview.

When do we put Hooker in the offense?

post TD edit: I spoke too soon

I'll be honest I didn't see the penalty that extended the drive

Glad Robinson is still on the field for that catch!

OL REALLY struggling right now

Is coronavirus over yet?

Ok maybe he shouldn't have been benched....

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Good catch Robinson

Ok 83

Great pass and catch on that td.

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

Great catch

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

Good god. What a catch.

We put the K in Kwality

Robinson's mea culpa

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

Mitchell great snag!!!

And should've been a D-hold as well.

We put the K in Kwality

Back in it boys

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

Hell of a play there

New ballgame, boys.

We put the K in Kwality

Another great catch

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

We got a bit of a gift on that drive.

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

TOUCHDOWN BIG STONE GAP!!

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

TD Mitchell!

Aye good response

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

That was a nice answer

Incredible production value on this broadcast all around

Omg this camera work is something else

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Need to make this stop

Thank God

Brice had to eat it, as he's dragged to the dirt by the defense.

Ooookaaaaay

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Damn that was a good punt

VB born, class of '14

Ashby with a nice sack.

Big stop there. D was gassed

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Team HamSmithClaeys is holding their own today

Robinson has stone hands today.

So...are we only throwing 25+ yard passes?

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

Where is Tre Turner?

Some cryptic stuff on twitter about him possibly being sick this week? Buffalo Wild Wings... maybe food poisoning? Total speculation based on the tweets I saw.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Mark Herzlich blows chunks. About to tune out the network broadcast and listen to Laze and Burnop.

that's what I'm doing! no accn

Go Hokies

I mean he is so biased it's not funny. Every time a penalty is in our favor he chalks it up to us acting. The guy shoved Burmeister a mile out of bounds, and the DB practically tackled Smith on that PI.

Why the hell do we continue insisting upon throwing the same fucking route up the sideline?? The receivers are not getting the separation for that to make any bit of sense

Let's do more than just throw up the ball until we get some more points on the board.

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

Do we have a 3rd down play that's not a 15 yard vertical?

U G L Y punt

Didn't he kick it left footed?

We put the K in Kwality

So...uh...what is Bradburn up to today?

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

Burmiester has completed 4 passes.

We put the K in Kwality

Still has only completed 4 passes

We put the K in Kwality

How many drops have we had now? And the one to Mitchell was just a hair overthrown. Receivers aren't getting any separation and have the dropsies today.

1hr 5 min later...7 completions

We put the K in Kwality

Shadley downing that punt. Glad to see that guy back

Edit: x3

What exactly is our game plan today??

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Duke is stacking the box and playing press man. Quick fades are the appropriate response play call. Just need to execute.

Get Angry, Bud!

Not to lose

We put the K in Kwality

Yeah, I should've recognized the vintage Fuente plan.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

win

Go Hokies

Big difference.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm going to need French to tell me the constant go routes are setting us up for something...

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

Middle-crossing routes are wide TF open

We put the K in Kwality

He actually suggested quick fades might be a popular play call in his game preview.

Get Angry, Bud!

Welp...its back to the...
When in doubt, throw the Fade offense.

Cornelson back for sure

Anyone else notice that Evan Fairs' jersey only says "Fair" on the back?

That's Fair.

We put the K in Kwality

Not fair

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

Fare?

We put the K in Kwality

Fair enough.

It would really help if the OL could run block. It looks really bad right now up front.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I want to see Hooker at this point.

Our defensive front 7 can be dominant at times.

If only we didn't have the ronas

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Alright offense let's get it going

Yeah I'm thinking we all got over our skis last week. I don't see anything here that makes me think this team's a contender. Yes I know it's early, but the same problems I saw last week are rearing their ugly head again.

Some of the players are different this week.

Let's get seven more, boys!

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

THIS CAMERA WORK REALLY SUCKS

Is coronavirus over yet?

App is worse. It's about 2 plays behind...when they actually show the play.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm ready for Hooker now

What is this play calling? You're shorthanded on defense and you're throwing long balls and giving the ball right back to them.

If it works, we're happy with it.

I'm not going to be overly critical just yet.

I don't have enough alcohol for this game

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I have plenty for both of us... will drink harder

I'm making a run at halftime I'll grab ya something

"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

Man if only.

Its lonely watching VT by myself

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I've seen enough Burmeister. There are two better QB options on this roster, use them.

Playcalling has done him no favors. We have almost abandoned the run and just want to throw bombs all day apparently.

It works in Madden

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Hooker time

Is a cardboard cutout of Corny calling the plays?

They brought Stiney back for this week.

We put the K in Kwality

O-line is getting whipped

Um...... can we see Hooker now? .....please?

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

I don't think the QB is the problem.

We don't appear to have any cohesive offensive strategy against a team that puts 8 in the box.

Yeesh.... I will stop calling for Burmeister to sit. Not fair to the kid if that's the case

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

This is definitely not on Burmeister. Gameplan on O is shit and receivers are really rough today. Calling for Hooker or QP is laughable.

Damn we need a Hooker

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

KCCO

ahhh VT offense making Duke look like the 85 Bears on defense...

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

Time for the escort

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

The issues on offense are directly related to a terrible performance by the OL. They have to get better no matter who is in at QB

Is coronavirus over yet?

I need a hooker

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Uninspired offense would be an improvement. I would just abandon the passing game if we are going to go 3 and out any way. Grind it out and give the D some rest, and maybe open some passing lanes while we are at it.

I am disappointed in the offense. The defense is depleted and I feel like it's only a matter of time before they break. We really needed the offense to step up and cover for the defense today.

Justus Reed is good

We put the K in Kwality

Just killed the fly that's been bothering us since the start of the game.

And I have the Burnop and Laaser broadcast perfectly timed. Good things are happening.

Give Matheny the Lunchpail.

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

A scholly would probably be more appreciated!

I think this has been mentioned, but if ACCN is partnered with ESPN.... why is their camera zoomed in in such a way that you can only see the O-line and D-line... Can't see shit.

And what I mean by the partnership comment, is that one would expect better quality than a HD high school camera job.

Why would you expect the camera work to be a level above the commentators or studio show?

Or why can't we get a broadcast crew that can a) research and b) distinguish 2 diff teams from the same state. According to what we heard earlier we played in the ACCC and won the bell bow last year. If they had more time during that exchange I'm sure they would have mentioned the Michael Vick finished 2nd in the heisman last year too.

ACCN is partnered with ESPN

Does ESPN know that?

YOU CANT DO THAT DUKE

"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

Tyler Matheny getting all the fantasy stats today.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Walk on Sack!!!

Matheny stepping up today.

Time for the offense to step up.

Matheny you the real MVP

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Feels like a HS game

Hoping for Hooker after the break

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

Impressed as hell by our D staff today. We have a great system in place with some great coaches. Backups really stepping up.

Meanwhile on O, who the hell let Corny back in the booth? It's becoming painfully obvious that he is the weakest link on this team.

Matheny have yourself a day kid!

ACCN production still garbage

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Well Tre is alive at least

Would love to see what Hooker has to offer today. Need someone to go out there and make some plays. Either way, need some energy on offense.

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

Just gonna throw it out there, play calling seems worse this week. It's 90% qp scramble or deep fade. Noticeably slower tempo as well

Recruit Prosim

Some of these late drive 3rd down calls are a little better

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

Wait why isn't Hooker playing?

I'm ready to wildly speculate

"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

Then you've come to the right place.

Yo that wasn't a good decision to throw that pass.

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

What ever happened to that pass up the middle that we used to hit Sam Rogers with?

He took it with him.

We put the K in Kwality

Burmeister's throwing is looking a lot like what we saw on the Oregon film tbh. It's improved, but I don't think he's a better passer than Hooker by any means.

yeah I've been less than impressed for sure. he's not going to win us games through the air unless he improves dramatically

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

He doesn't have a cannon for an arm, but seriously? How many balls have our receivers dropped today? And we kept calling verts when receivers were getting no separation.

This has been a great drive

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Appreciate the 4th down effort

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

I like the ballsy call on 4th down. I thought they were gonna try to draw them off an call timeout

VB born, class of '14

IIRC We used to run that play with Dalton Keene a bunch (and even others like Sam Rogers before him)

That was a good play call from Corny.

Need a TD here. Pls

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

A FG is better than nothing.

Bad throw high and behind. Single read. Crap

VB born, class of '14

Hmm, we don't really do the option/pitch anymore either.

They've been all over Mitchell every pass. Ridiculously blatant arm and jersey grabbing.

Recruit Prosim

I've noticed that.

Seems to me someone should be pointing that out to the ref.

It's intentional and I assume it's a coaching directive. It's shitty the refs are just letting it happen

Recruit Prosim

Damnit! Hell of a play by their safety

"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

Grabbed his jersey

They been hanging all over our guys all day

"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

Defensive stop and we have enough time to get another score

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

I still think we need Hooker in the game now.

I really really wanna #2 out there to begin the 3rd

"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

Gross, TMI

Ugh missed a word lmao

"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

Would have loved the TD, but the defense got some good rest there. Another stop, score again and get the ball after the half

Feels like no one is getting separation on the defenders and the offense is not the COVID mash unit. Concerning.

Those fan cutouts in the endzone are kinda weak. Need some VT cutouts to fill in the gaps.

I get a feeling that our passing game is really simple to learn on film.

Multiple throws where Duke DB are leading the recievers to the ball...they know what routes are coming.

How does the ref not see Mitchell's jersey grabbed?

Oh boy. Would've loved a fumble. Great play though

Folks, we aren't putting Hooker in the game unless things get ugly. He has had extremely limited practice in the last few weeks. QP is raw as a passer. Burmeister hasn't thrown a lot of balls today that I thought were super bad, maybe the throw into double coverage. Receivers aren't catching the ball and get shake the coverage today. And our gameplan has been wtf until the last drive. We can't always clamor for the other QB when the game gets tough.

We can't always clamor for the other QB when the game gets tough.

Ha! Valid reasons have never stopped us before.

Barno with the strip sack!

Per the lovely ACCN graphics, Duke just punted on second and 10.

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

I have no idea what is going on in this game and I haven't even started drinking!

It's gonna make for GREAT meme material though!!!

I thought they were going for the fake.

Broadcast shows 2nd and 10 and they are punting on 4th and 3

I was so confused!!

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

The ACCN down and distance graphics are terrible.

So Duke punts on 2nd down... awesome job ACC network

Damn Duke punted in 2 and 10. Bold strategy.

The ACC Network is so fucking trash. Duke just punted on "2nd and 10"

SmithClaeys Ham getting good pressure at the line

I'm so confused. What's the down? What's the distance? It's like the ACCN is toying with us now!

I swear it said 0th and 6 at one point

"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

I think I saw that too they switched it real quick

ACCN is such garbage

You see 3rd and 2 was actually 1st and 10. Therefore 4th and 2 was 1st and 10. See?

We put the K in Kwality

Hope we can get at least a FG to end the half. And then we get the ball to start the 3rd.

These guys cant get down or distance right on every other play.

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

Is it just me or was that not 10 yards? More like 4.....

17-7 would be great at halftime

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

Absolutely abysmal play-calling and time management right now.

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

Our "end of 2nd" special

Not sure if it isn't intentional.

30 seconds... What we got

First ACCN doesn't even know what down it is.

Secondly, we need a throwing threat if we want this offense humming. Hopefully hooker is back sooner than later

Between the announcers, the camera work, and the down/distance tracker on the screen, this broadcast is miserable

whoever is tracking the downs for ACCN is drunk!

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

Oh I thought he got the first down lol accn

I don't know if Burmeister knew that he had a free play. Would have been nice to just see him heave one downfield IMO.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Lazy play calling when you have a chance to get back to back possessions with halftime. That's frustrating.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Burmeister is making bad decisions and now wasting the entire clock in this 2 minute drill to do nothing. Just don't understand why Fuente is so committed to him.

EDIT: this post was made before the int, take him the fuck out PLEASE

I'm convinced the person running the down & distance graphic heard Herzlich call it a 1st down and put up the graphic saying that (keep in mind that I actually have no idea how these things work)

Bermy likes getting hit.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Mustard up MOFO

We put the K in Kwality

We just ran 2nd and 9...got a 5 yard offsides and now it's 3rd and 2.

We put the K in Kwality

Andddddd there it is. Sweet throw.

To be fair. Lewis was wide open

We put the K in Kwality

What the hell was that???

Ok put Hooker in what the hell was that throw

Oh my God, what the fuck was that

Where was Burmeister throwing that one

That's awful

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Ok now that was a horrific throw. Don't know if that was a miscommunication or what, but that was way bad.

It looked like it slipped out of his hand, he was trying to hit a slant underneath it looks like. It was wounded duck wobble spiraling too.

Who in the fuck was the throw going to????

Seriously it's Hooker time

does this crew even know what football is? I have seen enough of BM...

Gross, TMI

What the hell is going on in this thread?

But in Quincy please

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

Freaking terrible pass by BB

Ok, burmeister can take a seat now

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

HH please. Need someone out there who can ball. BB does not have it today.

"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

Belmar in beast mode today!

An extremely depleted defense is keeping us in the game with 0-3 Duke. Our offense needs to figure this out.

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

That was 30 minutes of bad football, except for dark horse Heisman candidate Tyler Matheny.

As of right now, he's got my support.

Can we nickname him the Honey-badger?

We put the K in Kwality

I think that one's taken, but you're on the right track.

Pretty sure they have the same name.

We put the K in Kwality

Depleted defense pitched a first half shutout. Thats impressive.

Our defense is legit good

Imagine how good it will be when Hamilton is calling plays

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

This game is not helping Fuente's case when people question his QB evaluations every year.

I think you're overdoing it a little.

Is he? This post specifically just says that Fuente seems to be giving ammo to his doubters, not that he's wrong or making bad decisions. For doubters (like myself) his decisions last year with Willis and so far with BB haven't quelled my doubts.

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

It just me or has Fuente put on 40 pounds in quarantine?

It might be that smedium shirt of his.

...in his pants! Boom!!

We put the K in Kwality

Hooker better be starting the 2nd half after that awful performance at the end of the half

Quick thoughts. D playing lights out. O line Not getting out of it as a push as it did last week, but if you read the analysis that was expected. Still think we're doing much better than they are. Probably win by touchdown

I want to give big props to the defense as well. They have controlled this game. Two true freshmen starting in the secondary and a walk on. Pass rush has been really solid so far. Big props to Belmar as well. Hopefully his form continues.

... So his face is flushed right

I'm not throwing in the towel on BB yet. He's had a couple bad throws, the overthrow to Blackshear was horrendous, but I think the gameplan to start the game was terrible. Receivers have been pretty poor today, so many drops and just no separation. Playcalling kept wanting to throw deep to the outside, which isn't BB's strength but he didn't put the ball in a bad spot. We just got away from the run and finally started to get back in a rhythm there at the end. I think we just need to forget about the 1st half and come back out and get back to basics.

Defensively, wow what can you say. Very impressive coaching job and effort from our backups today.

Mark Richt. Is. The. Worst.

We put the K in Kwality

I legit think he's drunk. His face is flustered, his words were slurred, laughing...

I'll have what she's having

We put the K in Kwality

EDIT: I was wrong

He did suffer from a heart attack about a year ago. I don't think he's been the same since then.

I really want to post Peter Griffin stroke face. But I'm a better person than that.

We put the K in Kwality

I think we're more likely to see QP than HH.

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

In that case, we stick with BB for now.

What happened to our running game?

Our defense is old school good this year. Unfortunately, our offense is old school blah.

BB is a pretty good runner but man-o-man, outside of that TD pass to Mitchell, his throws are horrendous. He's left several picks out there, including one that should have been picked before we kicked the FG.

I don't see what he brings to the table that a healthy Quincy or an unpracticed Herndon can't out-do.

Someday needs to remind our QBs that we have Tre freakin' Turner out wide.
And someone needs to light a fire under out OL's butt.

Burmeister has missed at least two reads on the option.

Tre has been MIA today and the corps as a whole isn't getting separation. Seriously come on, QP can throw a mean fade but let's not forget ND last year.

I get that maybe HH hasnt had the reps the last few weeks...but did he forget how to play football in that time? Or forget the playbook? What am i missing here....i get that he may be a little rusty. ..BB looks rusty today so whats the difference?

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

Mark Richt is very obviously on painkillers

He sure makes the viewer wish we had some.

Can we name our defense "Just Defense"?

We put the K in Kwality

But then you're missing out on all the fun you could have with something like "Smithfield Claeys'd Hams" or something like that

Our school advertisment this year is about COVID

yeah everyone in the world is wondering why Hooker isn't playing...Burmeister isn't good

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Must be a reason Hooker is not in the game. At least there is no QB controversy going into next week (if Hooker is ready by then). We just need start maulin and get this W.

Hendon Herner? I think these announcers are drunk.

Almost as good as the time one of the Raycom announcers said our quarterback was "Tayrod Tellie"

BB's arm strength is questionable

He doesn't have great arm strength, but damn if our playcalling doesn't keep trying to prove it. Wtf are we doing there on second and short.

Run the fucking ball.

Get Burmeister out of there

That's 2 drive ending horrible throws in a row

BENCH BURMEISTER

He should've taken off instead of chucking it deep to Tre a play before

We have to get QP or Hooker in here. Burmeister is not getting to done.

2 yards. We sling it long and then almost throw a pick. Very ideal.

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

So frustrating. Unless I missed one, Herbert's last three runs have been powerful with good gains. Why the hell we throw twice after that great run, I have no clue.

With as thin as our secondary is, it was only a matter of time. Too bad we don't have an offense that can protect our our defense. New season, same shit.

We've gotten lucky with the defense to this point. We pissed away over half a game with Burmeister at QB getting nothing done and now need to start worrying about putting actual points up.

If it was 31-10 and the D was the issue, then I would say, makes sense, everyone is out. O is pathetic.

You're right. D has given up all of 7 points through 3 quarters

Unfucking believable. We need to make a change or we lose this game.

I better see Hooker in the next series....

If I have to watch BB go 3 and out again I may lose my mind

Haha typical VT football.

I don't know why I get excited.

If we lose this game it won't be because the terribly depleted defense (and defensive staff) didn't play (and coach) their nuts off.

Our offense really needs to step up here.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I miss the jet sweep...

defense doesn't have the bodies to keep having anemic offense

Let's see if Fuente puts the same thing back out there again. Gotta score to win.

Yeah he's out of bounds

It looks like he probably is but unless they got a better view, it would be hard to overturn.

This would be the only time the damn ACCN cameramen can find the football

"The Big Ten is always using excuses to cancel games with us. First Wisconsin. Then Wisconsin. After that, Wisconsin. The subsequent cancellation with Wisconsin comes to mind too. Now Penn State. What's next? Wisconsin?" -HorseOnATreadmill

That's why I don't get going all the way to the sideline. It doesn't take much to step out, or getting a tiny nudge that carries you out of bounds. Why not 2-3 yards away, not right along. Ugh

geometry. you want to force your pursuer to take the worst possible angle in pursuing you. You do that by making him take the widest angle, you do that by making him cross the largest lateral distance. Hence going as far as you can to the edge.

And stepping out of bounds, regardless of geometry.

Edit: just stop short of the sideline by about a yard then you get the benefit of geometry without the risk of stepping on the sideline.

Then he just would have been tackled there.

I mean cut up the field a yard in from the sideline, same trajectory he took, just not all the way to the sideline, and force the guy to tackle you. He would have made it past the 16 even if he had been tackled if he hadn't stepped out of bounds.

if we don't score here take Burmeister out

No soup for you!

Take him out anyway. HH is our starter and we need to put him in the damn game.

Moar 21 please

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

I didn't see that being definitive but what do I know.

Oh, good we can settle for a FG

We put the K in Kwality

Nice return. Need to put it in the endzone.

2 weeks in a row that Herbert has run into the sideline. Maybe run up the middle.

We put the K in Kwality

Huh?

Last week he had a nice run. Broke outside and step out of bounds.

We put the K in Kwality

It's a kick return that he almost took to the house. If he runs up the middle he ends up down at our 25.

My only point is you can run to the sideline, just stop a yard shy of getting there. He's a monster for sure, just frustrating to see his runs cut short by stepping out of bounds.

QP can lay down 4 times and score. Just sayin.

We put the K in Kwality

Agree...this is QP territory.

Not sure why we aren't using him here.

WHYYYY

Edit YESSSSS

VB born, class of '14

The down and yardage indicator is just sort of random.

That play was 1st and 3.

We've even seen the elusive "0TH" down today

They were doing that last week too. Most people don't know that's what happens when you divide by zero

Are we not even trying to do any Reads on offense?

I officially hate these announcers.

Tough run. Needed that

That would not have been that close if we had gone with QP on the 2.

Why are we not going heavy and shoving it down their throat?

We put the K in Kwality

Good tough run by BB

You know this offense is easy to read when even I could tell that we'd have Tre on jet sweep action there.

Back on top. Need the D to find some energy now.

Please put in HH or QP on the next series. Burmeister is having a shit game and it's not getting better.

+2 yard advantage and up 3 points. #goacc

We put the K in Kwality

Anyone remember the rumors last year that Burmeister would have been the starter had he been eligible? What if Fuente is doing that thing where he's sticking with his guy, kind of like last year? If that's the case, hopefully it won't take an absolute waxing to make the change...again...for the 3rd time.

Hewitt playing well today. Justus eating up two blocks every play

I'd take BB over Brice. He was wise leaving Clemson

Alright 83

BB to TR for a big gain.

Why is all that shirt grabbing being allowed every play?

Guys, Herbert can play

I heart Herbert.

Shout out to Kaleb Smith for the downfield blocking.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I guess that's why they are playing Bermeister.

Now that's a drive!

Very nice play call on the TD.

This is the gameplan we wanted to see to start the game. Great drive. And great catch by Robinson on the long gainer.

To be fair we opened the game with a long pass to Robinson but he didn't bring it in.

Great drive there!!

Can't believe I'm saying this, but the D squad sideline reporter clearly made a good insight.

She mentioned that BB looked pissed off and determined after his last score. Guess so

Ten point lead.

Would be nice to see a big play on D to really put this one away.

Nice! Chewing up the clock and keeping the Defense rested

Uh it only took 5 plays. Still going to take the rest, though.

We came out pissed the f off this half

MOTHERFUCKIN' SHADLEY!

We do look physically tougher than they do

Wow. RB face mask?

why the hell aren't the punt returners starting deeper? Every single time, they're running backwards

I am pretty sure one of the coaches told him where to be and they did that based on what the punter has done in the past. Did Duke put in a different punter than they have used in previous games this year? Or, has he recovered from an injury? I'm not saying it is or isn't bad coaching, just that it a lot harder to do it right than to complain in hindsight.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I love this new defense. We can give up a first down, but we keep the play in front of us. Very solid play. I don't feel like anyone is just out there freelancing.

Our receivers are getting assaulted regularly

Run the damn ball. Geesh

Not to make an excuses for the announcers, but I feel like doing play by play from home a few hundred miles from where the game is being played would be a little trickier

Also doesn't help that the production team is as disorganized mess.

HERBERT IS A MAN

Run the damn ball, Brad.

I love Herbert..for real

3rd and Herbert.

Just run the damn ball!

It's really promising that Herbert's big play propensity has carried through both games.

Shame that Herbert was a grad transfer... I could get used to seeing him.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

We'll get him again next year if he wants to

Best news (reminder?) I've had in a while!

Hokiesports just lists him as a "graduate student," so I was going by that.

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

Cornelson is incredibly predictable as a playcaller.

His passing game has zero complexity.

Amen

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

That was a good call. He schemed the receiver open. Throw was good too, he just has to hold on to that

He can't catch the ball for them.

There was nothing wrong with that play call.

Would you trust BB with a complex passing game?

Get Angry, Bud!

Well, and to be fair, with the level of COVID issues VT has, the game plan has to be something that your whole team understands.

I'm hoping that later in the season, less COVID will mean more complexity.

that's the loudest I've ever heard it at Wallace Wade! hahahaha

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

Pumped into the stadium. Bitter mentioned hearing Teerlick being loud enough to hear over the pumped in noise.

Hot take - Duke isn't as bad as they looked last week, and we are not as good as we looked last week.

They were leading UVa in the third quarter.

7 turnovers (I think) will do that to ya

SHIT

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Duke looked solid in that drive.

I really wish we hadn't spotted them 7.

And we looked gassed and disinterested. Not a good recipe to close a game out.

And that's where the lack of depth hurts us in the secondary.

Screw you, Covid.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I live BM as much as the next guy. But 32% completion (8/23) isn't going to cut it. We've shit down Brice and he's completing 54%

We put the K in Kwality

We didn't shut him down that drive. And his percentage went up.

BM Ana's got to complete some passes we could/should be up 10-17 points right now.

Crap, did Brice wake up?

Depleted secondary is starting to show the tired legs. Offense has to give them some help here.

that might be the end for us...forgive me for not having much (any) confidence in our offense to produce here and I completely forgive our defense. depleted, inexperienced, with new coaching staff..this is the season that our offense needed to carry the defense. that's not happening here and its friggin Duke for crying out loud. very disappointing

Yeah we don't score on this drive, our odds look really bad for winning this game.

Have faith friend!

Tired D. Time for a 7 minute drive and score treat up the clock.

Our front 7 on D is gonna have to get Duke behind the chains. Our depleted secondary is gonna get torched on play action otherwise.

Keep. The. Ball. On. The. Ground.

Time for a 21 takeover.

Wish granted!

The most tech thing ever would be to settle for a field goal and then give up a touchdown. But that's the old tech.
