Let's go Hokies!

What have you done

Win the line of scrimmage, minimize big plays.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Has our front 7 ever looked that bad in the history of ever? All starters were available too.

LET'S GO!!!!

HOKIES!!

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

Run the damn ball!

Score more points than UNC. That will be the key to winning the game.

Wait, I thought it was TOP.

TOP is the key 100% of the time for 80% of the games.

Anxiously awaiting who's able to suit up this week...

I've been periodically refreshing twitter all morning awaiting that Andy Bitter "list of players out" tweet.

Jermaine Waller warming up!

Woohoo! That is key #1.

Andy Bitter reporting that Jermaine Waller and Devin Taylor are both going through warmups, so that is at least promising news.

Umm who broke the first comments rule?

Also can someone tell me how I should feel about this? Part of me is still every game is a practice this season. Part of me is starting to get on the hype train.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Nervous. With level of anxiety dependent upon how much of your life you've given over to the O&M. Or....just me?

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

No

This is going to be great for the ACC.

That's why I tried to fix it as soon as I saw it.

Wins add to the hype. We can just ignore the losses this year.

Last time they did what... Like an hour prior to kickoff or something

Definitely nervous to see it. I genuinely believe we are a better team as a whole, but injuries like the past two games will be pretty hard to overcome against a team of UNC's quality.

It would be ridiculous for me to say that I've been nervous about this one all week and I actually lost sleep last night over this game.

Boy, that would be ridiculous.

No it wouldn't

Quick redo of last year to refresh:

Missing some Ladler, Hazelton, etc.....

I almost forgot about the "Dalton Keene as RB" experiment

I damn near needed a defibrilator for that game.

We happened to be sitting right behind two obnoxious UNC fans (who were from SWVa). Needless to say the end of the game was sweet.

Way better than last week, but safety will be a big issue.

It will but at least they got a full week of reps in practice. Getting top CBs back is huge to help the safeties some.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Luke Tenuta being out is a pretty big deal...

Edit: Having both DD and Walker back is great! Reading is tough sometimes...

Is coronavirus over yet?

Yes, but luckily we have depth on the OL.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Wondering if Nester will be RT1 today?

also, DD is still out per Bitter's tweet

Looks like DD is out actually.

HUGE HUGE HUGE that Tisdale is back.

We will need a legendary VT linebackers performance without Deablo (and Jenkins, who stepped up admirably last week)

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

Seeing a fuller (nice) DB group has me feeling more optimistic than I was on Monday

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

I'm assuming this means Deablo is out due to contact tracing? Which would mean he will be back next week, right?

I think someone said he needed a negative test and didn't get one.

If it is contact tracing, I believe it is auto 14 days

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Right, I'm saying I believe I've seen mentioned that he wasn't contact tracing and instead was a positive that needed to test negative before getting back on the field. Personally, I do not know which is true.

Having a full coaching staff will be nice too

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

They just said on Gameday we're missing one coach, but didn't say who.

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

All of our full time coaches are back according to Bitter.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

I hate how much ESPN is up UNC's ass...their boy Mack

Earlier, on Game Day all of them were picking VT to win. They also had a nice feature on VT and our ability to overcome the adversity the first two weeks to win.

Dammit, of course I missed that part lol.

The world doesnt hate VT like so many seem to think lol.

No doubt. Sadly, it's more about apathy than hate. And that's on our program to fix.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Agreed, for me personally it's just every time I've heard something about this game during the week it was all talk about UNC. Sucks I missed that segment.

Seriously!? Dang it, the 1 day my lazy butt sleeps in until 9:00 (CT)....

I think we are being honest with the tracing... ND had 7 positives and only 4 out for contact tracing. UVA has 7 out now.

I think we were hit hard but if it is true that once you test positive and return, you aren't tested for 90 days, we will be full strength soon lol.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

ESPN had a bunch of stuff about COVID that I saw this morning. A couple postponements, and it said Baylor shut down football operations which makes it sound like it's running rampant through their program. (These were just headlines, didn't read the articles - been busy with other stuff).

As we anticipate the game today, please take a moment to support a Hokie currently in ICU in Colorado, Joe Ferrara, who was involved in a terrible hiking accident a couple of weeks ago.

I don't know how to feel about BB starting. I get it from the perspective of not throwing Hooker out there cold, but also you gotta throw him out there eventually. I can see the logic both ways.

HH will play when we're up by 40

So second quarter.

Everytime I see this All State commercial I keep expecting the kick to wake me up out of this nightmare of a 2020.

According CJF in the pregame interview Laze, sounds like HH will get some playing time today. Didn't really mention QP.

Confirmed? Or still speculation?

Duck being out for UNC hurts them. They are also missing their nickel and most stout DT. They are thin in the back end.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Man Corso is struggling. Sad to see that.

It's sad to see, but I'm all for letting him stay on as long as he can. If it makes his (likely) last years as good as they can be I think he's earned that. Still doing numbers too haha, leading the superdog standings through this week.

Doing the Tomahawk Chop after picking the Gators was just sad to see. I love Corso, but man he's just not there anymore.

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

We cannot leave Newsome that wide open

Dan Orlovsky is already annoying as fuck

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

Carolina is driving very efficiently right now.

This could be a long day.

A really long day

We're not going to get to Howell with these quick throws. Need to drop back the ends and clog the throwing lanes.

We put the K in Kwality

Howell is getting the ball out quick

Our tackling is shite.

We put the K in Kwality

First few games seemed like gang tackling with sure tacklers. We'll see if they start flying around better. Things didn't look as crisp as they did the first game.

Rough first drive for the D. UNC is methodically moving down the field dinking and dunking. Going to be tough to stop that.

You can definitely tell the impact all the absences have had on our conditioning.

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

We need to bring the ball carrier down on first contact. Way too many broken tackles.

I'm going to need more alcohol

Well our defense looked Charmin soft that TD drive

partly due to soft coverage and sloppy tackling

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Playing from behind with Braxton Burmeister is going to be a fucking nightmare

The run game was always a big worry. We have not looked good against the run in either game this year, so this can't be surprising. We need to make sure we don't fall behind big.

I'm already tired of these announcers rubbing Carolina's back....

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

This defense is...bad. It's weird for me seeing teams running the ball down VT's throat the last couple of years

Not good Bob.gif

They're going to throw the ball around all over the field to get our defense tired, then run it up the middle all day long.

We'll get to see how JHam and company adjust. Need a points and a long drive to give the D some rest.

Hopefully the offense has a ton of points in them today. Woof.

Sam Howell 5-for-5, overcame a 10 yd holding penalty, and methodically moved the ball down the field. I guess if they are going to score every drive, it's better for it to take 5 - 7 min each instead of 3 plays for 75 yards. The first dropped pass on our side is going to hit hard.

You called it.

Looking like the 2018 defensive front on the drive... Need to make some adjustments

Hokie Club member since 2017

We get gutted up the middle

I think our D is gonna come up with a couple of turnovers in this one, but also give up some yards. Hopefully our offense will ball out.

Big play Tre with the drop

We put the K in Kwality

Tre's gotta catch that ball.

Herbert got 5 on his first carry. that is a good start

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Tre had got to catch that

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

WTF at that guy wrapping up Turner's legs well after the play

All I know is if tre gets injured I don't feel great about our other WRs

Hokie Club member since 2017

Inaccurate throw. Bad drop

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 mean TT was standing still and it was a little inside. But that was 100% on TT. Hit him in the mitts and he flat dropped it.

We put the K in Kwality

This is going to be a long afternoon. I can already feel it.

Burmeister threw behind Turner there

I do not trust Burmeister to throw, at all.

Yeah we haven't seen consistent short to mid range passes from him at all.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

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

Tre has got to make that catch. Not the easiest but the types of plays that have to happen when playing a top 10 team

We're going to need some answers on both offense and defense today.

It's not fair that we have to play this team without our starting cornerbacks.

Waller and Chatman are starting brother. Our safeties are out.

Ah. Gotcha.

Sure doesn't look like it.

I already need a Hooker

Tre should have held onto that, but that is HORRIBLE placement from Burmeister. You force Tre to go against his momentum and Tre had run to cut up field if that ball is put in front of him. Awful play.

Solid 7 yd gain on 1st down.

Followed by 2 throws...naturally

What has happened to Tre this year? Dude has fallen off the face of the earth

He hasn't looked healthy to me. May be his plantar issue. They haven't been targeting him a whole lot and I think the staff is using him as a decoy.

Bad drop, but that was one hell of an awful throw. Could have thrown in front or into Tre and its a catch, instead threw it behind. Inaccurate.

That was about a 180 from how I wanted the game to start

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Burmeister could have easily picked up the first down with his legs, too.

Just a bad play all around

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

How much did they screw that up?

Let us count the ways...

Wtf?! We're going for it???

We put the K in Kwality

Never mind. Great pooch punt.

We put the K in Kwality

Are we really going for this...?

Whelp, lets see how the defense adjusts. It'd suck to be down 14 halfway through the first quarter. At that point you have to rely on BB's arm and that hasn't been impressive...

JK. 7:08 into the first, not even half way.

BB with the nice pooch punt.

Dang. Look out Bradburn, nice punt by BB.

We need to pressure UNC into bad decisions and mistakes. Like that false start.

We put the K in Kwality

Burmeister channeling his inner Aussie

Nice distance on that kick

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

BB going for the 25 next week.

Our QB can punt...that's cool

Yeah that's cool, but I would rather not be in position to know whether he can or not...

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

How bout six yards on first down we run until they show us they can stop it

RUN. THE. DAM. ROCK

Really can't end up 14-0 here. Just feels like no one is winning battles on either side of the ball. Probably fortunate to play 2 awful teams to start and we're going to be exposed today.

Jesus Christ they are going to run all over us today

Incomplete pass. Sweet!

We put the K in Kwality

And we give up 16 on first and 15.

Run up the middle on 1st and 15

Not touched until he's 12 yards downfield

Ugly

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

...then drug Dax for 5 yards.

We put the K in Kwality

Unfortunately, their failed plays are usually 100% their fault.

This reminds me of the Pitt and GT games a couple years ago. Defense doesn't look like they're remotely able to stop any play

That was a three stooges tackle.

this is gonna be a long day

Daz fucks us up ever year.

Their WRs are playing the way I wish ours would

We put the K in Kwality

Defense looks flat out awful so far. We are about to get blown out.

Did UNC grease their uniforms or what's happening here

So far it's ALL UNC. ALL DAY.

Gonna be a long day.

We are gonna lose this game by a massive margin

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

Defense is being exposed for exactly what it is....soft. The difference between Virginia Tech and the top tier programs is that those defenses arrive with an attitude.

And that they don't have 10 players out from their 2 deep.

โ€œThese people are losing their minds. This is beautiful.โ€

Dude our CB's have been out 2 weeks, DD is out, freaking our defense has been playing pretty well given who all has been out. But having that many DB's out against a QB like Howell is, let's just say, less than ideal. Hell, our defensive coaches have been out a lot. The coaches probably have to shift schemes some from week to week depending on who they have available. We haven't even seen our defense, so not sure about calling them soft.

I'm not making excuses (or like Reese said "reasons"). We're depleted and decided to play. If we get houses because of depth we lost fair and square.

Now if it rains, that's totally excusable ;)

We put the K in Kwality

All I'm saying is he called our "defense" soft. We haven't seen our defense because of said reasons. Our defense from game to game isn't good because of that also. When you can't practice because of COVID, guys will be rusty, and it takes less than 2 weeks to lose peak physical performance. I'm just not going to criticize our defense a lot because of what they've been dealing with. So yeah, if we lose because someone scores a shit-ton of points, that'll happen and just hope our offense can score more.

Chatman got fucking roasted. Oh my.

Tackle him for PI. It's only 15 yards.

We put the K in Kwality

He wasn't even close enough to tackle him for PI.

Tackle him at the LOS before the snap.

We put the K in Kwality

Hate to be that guy but this game is already over

Yeah this D is shellshocked

Well, no.

But the trendline is definitely there.

Our DL has been non existent and thr LBs are way late

They're doing a terrific job getting the ball out quickly like a smart play caller would, can't really blame the dline when connor is defending nobody

Okay this D is terrible so far

Connor can't cover Newsome.

They're gonna beat on that all day..
Just like 2019.

Oh boy

Complete joke of a defense. This is more what I expected from this team before the season started.

looks like we're going to get blown TF out. that's too bad

Well when you're getting gutted for 10 yards a carry up the middle, you're gonna get eaten on play action. It's gonna be a long day fellas.

We just lost our recruiting region

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

Seriously, why do that?

I'm already not enjoying this game.

Brother we lost that a few years ago..

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

We already lost it.

But it doesn't really matter because Mack Brown is old...definitely nothing to worry about.

Lots of zone it seems in our secondary. Missing our Safeties will make it hard to run man coverage i bet

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Serious 2018 defense vibes. Just pathetic and useless at every level

Don't worry our CorFuFense will come out and drop back three times for deep passes and punt. Completely panic and go away from our strength.

We need a sustained drive. Even if we don't get points. D needs time to adjust and rest.

We put the K in Kwality

...and 3 and out. Gained a whopping 6 yards. We now have a total of 11 yards.

We put the K in Kwality

Defense isn't going to get a stop all day. Out of position, not interested in tackling, no energy. 2018 type of start for this group.

when do we start complaining about Fuente?

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Like, I don't understand how UNCs offense is so good in Mack's second year and we're still waiting for ours to show up in year 5

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Sam Howell, year two.

You can't overstate how important a QB is. Makes everyone on offense look better.

You mean other than scoring 45 and 38 points against P5 in-conference opponents? How many points did you want them to score before you considered them "showing up?" Yes, we started this game for shit, but that doesn't mean it won't pick up in this game and we won't score a lot of points today and against other teams in the future. Maybe this team is ranked #1 in the country in rushing defense.

Alum already started with that a few posts ago. Just without his name in it.

Oh hey look vtkey is ticking Fuentes taint again

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

It's not over, but if we don't answer soon it most certainly will be.

1. Need a TD drive here and the defense a chance to stay off the field.

2. We need adjustments on D. Justin Hamilton has a hell of a first game to fix.

Too early to quit. Need some points here

Yep. Cant bail this early.

Sort of wish we would do that.

Is coronavirus over yet?

To carry on my sentiment from last week, I'm ready for Hooker

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

We were behind by ten before we scored last year (I think)

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I knew they were going to score. I didn't know our defense wasn't going to try.

Orlovsky is an idiot, Brown just ran straight up the field

I wonder when the last time I felt this hopeless regarding our defense. This is really sad.

When the WR can't get his arms up, that's PI.

We put the K in Kwality

Hooker needs to be in now if we plan on throwing. BB just doesn't look capable. Terrible 3 and out

wtf was that throw!!!!!

I defended BB last week and I believe he was solid. But if we don't put Hooker in soon, Fuente and Corn can walk back to Blacksburg.

UNC D knows that BB is only going to throw it Mitchell or Robinson

Was there no other option than a quad covered TE?

I missed the first few minutes. Is hooker still on covid protocol?

No, he's available. BB Is the new Ryan Willis... it's going to take 29 turnovers to make a change

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

Good lord. Cmon coach.

Nope. He's available. Fuente doing the same stuff he did last year, stick with his guy until we get beat so bad he doesn't have a choice but switch to HH.

Get Braxton outta there

Screw that. Put him at safety. Maybe he can tackle.

We put the K in Kwality

Hooker and his missed practices can't be worse than this.

Run the damn ball!!!!!!!

Can't stand Cornelson

Ugh. Wondering if I should just go back to bed at this point.

Good decision there, Mitchell only had 15 guys covering him

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

200+ yard rusher. Dont give him the ball. makes sense

WHY WE NOT RUNNING IT AND WHY WE STICKING WITH BB

Our. Offense. Is. Not. Good.

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

why stop there?
Our. Defense. Is. Not. Good.

WE. ARE. NOT. GOOD.

6 plays:

2 runs
4 passes
Herbert has touched the ball 1 time.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Give the damn ball to Herbert

Why are we not running the ball???

VB born, class of '14

Gonna be the in a 21-0 hole soon because Fuente loves his weird pet project from Oregon more than the only home-grown QB who has actually had legitimate success in his entire VT tenure

What the fuck did we do all week?? It's unreal how different these two teams are from this game last year

PUUT IN HOOOOKER ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ-๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ-๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

UNC 59 VT 7...at halftime

At least i bet the over

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

Long time, no talk, but... if we don't see Hooker next drive, especially if defense still doesn't show up here, I might pull my hair out. Pathetic start.

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever is playing Tennessee.

Shoot I'd settle for QP if Hooker isn't ready. QP played well against UNC last year, might trigger some PTSD on UNCs side

The offense has been as bad as the defense so far, but the offense gets to punt,

Uhh...so have we even handed it off to our longshot Heisman candidate yet? Looks like another genius Corny gameplan!

Let's Go...

We need a stop for 1 yard. Give up 4.

We put the K in Kwality

Not giving Herbert the ball is just stupid.

2 possessions.

Herbert with 1 touch.

Makes total sense.

Cornelson is an absolutely inept OC

Can't blame him too much when UNC does literally whatever they want on offense and Burmeister can't pass

Cant blame him? Just run the ball with your star running back it's not that complicated

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Can we put Waller as all 4 DB spots?

We put the K in Kwality

UNC O-Line got some big dudes.

Let's Go...

Waller seems to be the lone bright spot so far.

We are about to be down 21-0 in the first quarter before we pick up a first down.

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

Take that Dazz

Defense looking like they're playing in the Pro Bowl

And Chamarri is gone.

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

...and Connor makes a stupid ass play. He's gone.

We put the K in Kwality

He at least lead with the shoulder. But their going to boot him.

We put the K in Kwality

Get Conner out of there. Stupid undisciplined play.

Connor about to be ejected

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

Oh come on 22

And There goes our bright spot

God dammit Chamarri. That's just poor discipline.

And connor is gone what an idiot

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

and that's targeting

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

Bye Conner

Hendon must be miles away from game shape if they still won't play him. He's there to be a an emergency QB in case of freak accidents.

No. This is coaching. Our D getting shredded, making no adjustments. Our O needed to establish the run game, control the clock and make smart play calls, but panicked on the first drive and started throwing single receiver routes.

We put the K in Kwality

Connor is gone.

21-0 here soon.

The difference in offensive talent and playcalling is embarrassing.

Fuente will never be able to recruit NC again after this game.

This game is proving that Fuente's ceiling is 7-8 wins with the recruiting and coaching he puts together. We will never be able to compete with legitimate talent under him.

The defense is awful, but we have a rookie DC and entirely new staff. Not a pass, but you can at least expect it. The offense being completely unable to do anything yet again is an indictment on he and Corn and an embarrassment.

And we're missing a lot of players including our starting safeties on that side of the ball.

Edit: nevermind. In the moment play

I can't watch this anymore. I have better things to do with my blood pressure.

Newsome got in his head and he decided to play like a moron.....and now you're gone. Great work.

If you're gonna target at least get a real shot in you fucking dumbass

This game is getting away from us fast

This is atrocious.

This is the worst defensive performance since Pitt 2 years ago and probably Top 5 worst defensive performances since 2000. I mean, this is horrid. Every element of our defense is getting dominated.

"Not what we needed" is an understatement...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

my new estimate for this game is 56 UNC - VT 17

It's always darkest before the dawn ~ Thomas Fuller

You think we're going to actually score?

We put the K in Kwality

Embarrassing performance so far all around. Team looks slow, undisciplined, and physically outmatched.

The refs are blind to the holding.

That's the way it's been called all year. We got some of those the last two weeks.

These "targeting" calls are starting to get really out of hand in all of College football

I don't understand, you don't think that was targeting? It doesn't always have to mean helmet to helmet contact. The review took about 0.002 seconds as a formality.

He physically cannot stop. How well started sliding after Conner committed to a target point at thigh level. Yes the hit looks bad but it is on the qb not the tackler. We need some common sense on these plays.

Poor tackling.

Boy we look like a ๐Ÿคก show of a team right now

On ABC

We look like a joke on every phase of this game. This is pathetic. What a fucking miserable job of preparation this week. Holy shit

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

Anndd this game is over

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

Game

Match

See yall later

This is going to end up as the worst loss in the Fuente era

Ah yes. Slapping knees is a phenomenal tackling technique

That'll do it. At least the rest of my Saturday is free now.

Duck that, targeting?

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Well, fuck.

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

Man didn't see this coming. 21-0 is going to be tough to overcome

Big Brain Brad: They can't stop Herbert from going for 200 yards...if I never give him the ball.

Do we have any receivers that can play DB? Can't do any worse

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

Pain

They just want it more than we do. Plain and simple. No emotion anywhere on the field or sideline from us. All about swag and emotion on theirs. They want to be good. Seems like we just want to be average at best.

Justin Hamilton should never be able to call another defensive game a day in his life. Should have stuck with the Zoom calls apparently. What a shit show

need someone to post a noob noob gif from Rick and Morty

TV off. If the team can't put in any effort, why should I care.

Have a good Saturday ya'll

This is hitting 2018 levels for sure.

Very interested to see what this team does to finish this game. We will learn a lot.

It's been a long time since I've felt in this much despair this early in a game. We can't stop them, and we can't give our D a breather. Horrible start....

I'm not going to be mad at Fuente for losing a game. But one has to wonder what this would look like if Herbert had actually touched the ball on the first two drives.

Fire Corny at halftime.

Is coronavirus over yet?

21-0 with over 4 mins left in the first quarter.

0 first downs for our offense. One rushing attempt for one of the leading rushers in the nation. Holy shit what are we doing. This is fucking embarrassing

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

Clarification: The leading rusher in FBS in YPG

One team came looking to play and we are not that team.

Is anyone but me a bit disappointed in this LB crew this year? Some of it has to be scheme. Certainly we aren't that bad are we?

On Defense, I can at least understand.

We are trying to run a system we simply don't have the personnel for.

We don't have enough talent or depth on DL and our secondary is thin and too slow. That's why Mitchell and Wiles are gone.

This is a reality check to that end. Although the energy just absolutely sucks which isn't excusable.

But offensively, we aren't even damn trying to play to our strengths...its bad coaching.

Jameson or Woodford Reserve?

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

There goes our NC to VT campaign!

Let's Go...

Too true

Seems to me that the gloves are off.

What else do we have?

Ok hurry up to get the d out there even quicker.

Burmeister again.

What the fuck are we even doing right now.

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

why is Burmeister in
why is Herbert out

Corn is doing fuckall again

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

WHY THE FUCK IS BURMEISTER STILL IN?!

we're seriously putting in BB right now????

Is Herbert injured?

Is coronavirus over yet?

Is Fuente injured?

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

Fu is a complete joke. He defiantly refuses to admit he could possibly be wrong year to year.

Burmeister still???

Turn out the lights the party is over

Do not understand why we aren't seeing HH

Pronably gonna turn it off soon to keep my blood pressure down and not ruin my Saturday

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

No Hooker. Not even trying to get Herbert involved. Completely undisciplined play defensively.

Not a good effort so far.

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

Screen pass, QB run, screen pass, QB run. Lol.

Well this game is gonna make me polish off this bottle of Basil

I love the tickle of Dickel in my belly

Big Play Trey shows up.

Finally!

UNC with 8 in the box, can't run against that. They're daring BB to throw, knowing he can't.

Good point, I'd be frustrated if we consistently ran it into the teeth of their defense. I guess Blackshear is out there because he's supposed to bring the shiftiness and speed.

Should have been an extra 15 on #2 there.

We put the K in Kwality

Herbert still only has one attempt

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 suppose they're trying to set it up so that it's not all of UNC against Herbert, but I'm no expert.

Cornelson thinks he is out with Covid

It's being dictated by the D.

Hasn't been on the field this drive. Something must be going on.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Since we are down 21-0 after the first quarter, it takes us out of our gameplan to run the ball and control the clock. Now we have to pass to catch up and close the deficit.

Yeah, but came out of that game plan on our 2nd
Offensive play of the game.

We put the K in Kwality

Agreed. We definitely put ourselves in this situation. I am fully convinced at this point Corn doesn't know what the hell he is doing and just picks random plays out of a hat.

And we sure as shit aren't going to catch up passing with BB

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

Where on earth was the flag...

They seem to be eating those.

Big Brain Brad: Herbert is the tits, UNC is expecting him. Let's throw them off by giving him one touch a quarter.

I changed my shirt, VT will start playing better now

I figured someone was doing something wrong.

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

It worked! Touchdown. Apologies to everyone for starting off with the wrong shirt๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Please don't let it happen again.

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

We put the K in Kwality

I probably need to do that too.

Blackshear only got 1 yd there. But you see it...he should've been tackled for a loss and than out of the guys hand.

We put the K in Kwality

Herbert's 1st run is 5 yards but let's not give it to him again. Corny or Stinespring who's worse

To be fair, A lot of our runs are probably reads by burmeister and it may be the right reads to keep it instead of give it to Herbert. Still, id like some designed runs for him

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

First and goal.

4 plays to get 6 yards.

VB born, class of '14

Oh boy...

Someone finally pointing out the obvious. The guy is flat out terrible.

Wow...this ain't a good look

Are we sure he meant it in a negative way?

Based on history; yes.

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

Yes, if it weren't negative there wouldn't be the "guess" in there

3 qb runs up the middle for nothing then fade on 4th?

This is just embarrassing; however, 1000% percent true.

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

Holy shit straight up tagged and everything.

Let's Go...

It's not looking good boys...

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

How are we NOT running Herbert? Are we saving him for when we are down by 35?!?

It will add to the Heisman lore when he brings us back from the grave

Don't want to bring down his YPC.

We put the K in Kwality

Herbert with a great block on that run.

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

Aight been shitting on Corny all day so I'll tip my hat on that Mitchell TD

Let's Go...

Yeah it's one of Corny's "go to" plays in that situation, Mitchell feasts on it

Mitchell for 6!

Now we need a stop defensively and maybe we can get back in it

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

that was a good play, lets have more of that plz

Disappointed Herbert didn't get the touch there, but great call on that play

We would need to take 4 delay of game penalties to get it back far enough to keep his average touchdown yardage.

We put the K in Kwality

"Positionless player"?? WTF is this analyst talking about?

We put the K in Kwality

Herbert with the block! Maybe we can get him some touches now

That was needed

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Let's get a defensive stop now. Let UNC make their adjustments on the sideline and throw hooker on the field.

.....our coaches aren't that smart. They will just allow INC to adjust and we will go 3 and out

Herbert with 1 touch today ladies and gentlemen.

Is coronavirus over yet?

UNC totally baffled

Fu: "See, I know what I am doing."

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

I love it when a plan comes together /s

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

OK that's a really cool play design

We cant stop them

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

If you're Hooker and you don't see the field today, especially in a game like this, you almost have to consider the transfer portal after the season

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

(again)

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

Something still has to be up. I seriously doubt Fuente would be holding him back just because Braxton is 2-0

Wow!

Defense got a stop!

One of the leading rushers in the nation and he gets 1 touch in the quarter. SMDH

The coaches did not get these guys ready for this game. Body language on the field and sideline say it all.

VTMidge

3 and out. Great play by Strong to knock it out.

nice play by Strong!!!

Good god. Lucky there. 3rd and 2, we give the receiver a 5 yard cousin

We put the K in Kwality

I'll allow it gif.

What a play by Dorian Strong!

good field position...

Hey, we got a stop!

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

3 and out, alright!

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

Shocking they punted there......I am NOT punting if I'm UNC. VT can't cover the 5 yard out.

Strong play there

If only this was ACCN, orlovsky could say 'i know it's zeroth down, but they're treating like it's negative oneth because of four down territory"

A defensive stop??

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I haven't seen Fu smile one time today yet.

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

Game over. Conner out? Game over man

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

I think the D is taking the RB away on the zone read.

HOOKER!

Yay hooker is in

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

Well looks like the BB experiment is over for now.

I'm really glad to see hooker in the game. But that makes no sense. BB just had a good series drove down the field and scored and they pull them out.

We put the K in Kwality

That's Fu for you.

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

If Fuente wants BB to get the first quarter reps, he's going to get the first quarter reps, dammit

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 guess the logic is it's pre planned who gets to play which quarter, so the qb doesn't have to look over his shoulder when he makes a bad play.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Mitchell has to catch that.

I'm so confused lol. We didn't bench Braxton after the three and out type drives, then we bench him after the TD drive

I am not sure that it is a benching.

It's not.

More of a rotation.

Not a fan of the plays there, but that was a bad drop

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

Completely offensive

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

What the hell was that drive? Seriously....what the fuck.Your defense finally makes a stop and you take out the QB that just took you down the field to put in a QB that's cold. What the hell is that thinking???

One thing is abundantly clear. Corny is still Corny. And until Fuente makes a change there, we will always have these terribly head scratching moments throughout the season.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Every year we just seem to have a couple games where the game plan was just horribly wrong.

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

We had quite the opportunity on that drive. Not impressive at all.

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

Big chance wasted there with good field position to make this a game again. 3 and out instead.

Since Hooker went 3 and out, I fully expect Fu to let BB finish the game, regardless of performance

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

You called it.

We put the K in Kwality

I am not happy to be right.

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

So frustrating. You finally get a defensive stop and that's the series you call? Corn ain't it fam but we know that already

VB born, class of '14

Should have been Hooker before that, but it feels so insane to pull him AFTER Braxton leads a TD drive.

Clearly time for QP

I gotta say I think Fu needs to go back to calling plays. Didn't he call them against NCSU?

We put the K in Kwality

This is just stupid. The QB Decision makes no sense whatsoever. Our Defense is depleted. You know its going to be a shoot out so you need to put your best players on the field to win. Hooker is the best QB we have. Instead, we start Burmeister. Burmeister stinks it up to start. We're down big. He stays in. But then Burmeister actually gets into a rhythm and leads a TD drive. Yet then you make a switch and go with Hooker? What are we even doing out there today?

corny took unc -5.5

At 500 comments before half; oh boy ...

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

Blackshear should be running the Jet Sweep action out of the slot with Herbert getting touches.

I have absolutely no idea what Corny has been doing all week, but its atrocious.

Is coronavirus over yet?

If they can get it to within 7 by halftime that's a huge win and honestly have some momentum.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Fu is just completely incompetent at QB management. This makes no sense at all.

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

Burmeister back in. Ok then

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

Herbert shows up.

On 4th down, when they are expecting run.

Hurry Brad, it worked, so let's nevwr do it again.

Driving with BB. Nice runs by Herbert and a good catch by Tre.

This Herbert guys pretty good. Maybe we should have been giving him more touches

Gave Herbert the ball..would ya look at that

If we had done this the first two drives we might be winning the football game right now.

Is coronavirus over yet?

4 x 7 = 28. Math checks out.

What a block by Mitchell!!!

Lets go baby, getting some momentum. Took their knockout shot and got off the canvas!

Feed Herbert and the O line.

Come on defense another big 3 and out here.

Someone I guess finally pulled Corny out of the booth. Settling into our gameplan and feeding Herbert the rock. Do not understand the QB switching though at all.

Guys I apologize, I wore a orange shirt to start the game...I've changed it since we went down 21-0, my bad y'all.

Well, it musta been one of us changing shirts (or both). Looking forward to scoring a lot more unanswered points.

I changed my shirt because it had puke all over it.

We put the K in Kwality

What were you doing near the defense?

Made the mistake of watching the first quarter.

We put the K in Kwality

Me too lol

Does Bryce Watts even play for UNC?

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

He elected to sit out this year due to COVID.

opted out this year

Cam'Ron Kelly 800% blew that tackle

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I don't care who plays QB, just give the ball to 25

This would be a great time for Tyler "Heisman" Matheny to get an INT

Last two BB drives looked like the drives from our first two games. Need to keep it up.

Big props to Mitchell on that TD whose blocking was immense.

Boy did we sack up after that opening haymaker

Atta boy Herbert!

Need a big D stand here

Sorry guys, didn't have my VT shirt on. Changed and we scored 2 unanswered TD's, and kept UNC to 3 and outs. My bad. I won't let it happen again.

this is the third game in a row where Herbert has made it abundantly clear that he is the best player we have on offense

What a block by mitchell!

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

Let's get a turnover so we can continue to feed Herbert!!

James Mitchell be like

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Now we find out if JHam made the right adjustments or if UNCheat got too conservative on O with the big lead.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

This thread is hilarious.

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

Ugh. Boomerang coasters suck.

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

A) Pretty sure that's an Arrow Looper.
2) You aren't wrong at all
D) a Boomerang would definitely describe this game

It's definitely Zoomeramg (Vekoma) at Lake Compounce

Amazing what happens when we feed Herbert...

I love the tickle of Dickel in my belly

Methany missed that tackle.

My dog had surgery last week and didn't want to put her jersey on at the start of the game. That was fixed about 5 minutes ago! She apologizes. Go Hokies!

Open field tackling is killing us.

Our run D is garbage

Oh boy Matheny....

Matheny is missing a lot of tackles today. diving at legs and not getting it done

He is a walk on though so how much do your really expect.

We are really missing Jenkins tackling today

So I'm guessing we just wanted to spot unc 21 points

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

Suddenly we can't tackle again.

We put the K in Kwality

Sooooooo many weak arm tackles

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

The tackling is so so so so so so bad.

Back to shredding our defense, again.

4 running plays and a TD.

Offensive defense on that drive.

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

JFC we cannot tackle

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

What the hell is going on with our tackling today? Just pawing at the RBs

Our offense putting points on the board won't matter if our defense can't tackle...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

FYI, I hate Dazz Newsome

Daz Newsome talkin' shit

Unfortunately we have let him earn it this game. Hoping for a turnaround so that he can eat it later.

Newsome is such poorsport glad he didnt come to Tech

Not sure what I hate more, Dazz Newsome, or the fact that he's not on VT.
