Legs to all for getting it right.

What happened to Waller considering he played last week?

Injury in the 4th quarter last week

There's a lot of material there

I really should break down and get a subscription to something that includes the ACCN. However, we haven't lost yet when I haven't watched, so for the sake of victory I'll refrain today. Sorry about last week.

Go Hokies!!

I'm with you here!

Go Hokies

Anyone have YouTube TV? I don't seem to see ACC Network at all on the list any more. Can't find the upcoming listing for our game.

update edit - nevermind, working again

Yeah I'm watching ACCN on it right now. Maybe reboot?

Can you ELI5? so exit YouTube TV and go to ESPN in my Roku? Whenever I do that, they ask me for my cable login, which I don't have.

Yep, separate app. You should be able to log in with YouTube tv as your cable provider. Also in YouTube tv when you view live listings, check that you're not on "Custom" listings. You want default, or at least that's how I got it to show up.

I had to scroll up to the "Live" tab (channel listings), then scroll down to find the ACCN channel.

They had the game listed as "Teams TBA", so it wouldn't show up anywhere else on the App.

Looks like it hit the backup RB room and the rest of the OL room that didn't get hit during the initial breakout. Thankfully it didn't claim Herbert.

Dear Lord please protect Khalil Herbert and all those who dwell around Khalil Herbert

Loluva is losing by two touchdowns to wake. Yay!

uva tied the game up at 23 apiece with a field goal. Wake scored 14 points in in 90 seconds plus a field goal a bit later. Less than 2:30 left when uva failed on a 4th and goal. Wake is running the clock out.

When uva tied the game, all the uva players were dancing around on the sideline. Now they are not.

It's a good day when the joy gets sucked out of Hooville.

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

Woah what a pick!

Just for the record, I think Tahj Gary (whose on the "out tonight" list) has some really good upside. Very similar running style to Herbert and a body to carry some weight.

HOKIES!!!!!!!

It feels like a college football game again with the band & a few fans here.

After watching the disaster that the UVA offense is, it really is amazing that Fuente and co. somehow have three quality ACC QBs.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I don't know how anybody thought they were going to to replace Perkins this year. It was literally impossible for them.

What we are seeing now is just how many problems he masked for them last year. And it don't look pretty.

We think we have issues here, and we do, but I'll still take our situation over theirs.

How about the numbering committee at LOLUVA? Had to look at their roster. QBs with #36 and #98? What?

NCSU got their 4th win today...out game is looking more impressive.

(No comment on the bad coaching decisions they made)

We put the K in Kwality

It'll definitely help us in the analytics... because they can't tell they started the wrong QB against us haha.

And here we go with the EJ Manuel head nodding.

Did you see him at the Town Hall the other night? /s

(Not political...trending pop culture)

We put the K in Kwality

I did not sir. I'm glad. I get dizzy watching him but it's like watching a pendulum going back and forth. I get hypnotized.

Something is wrong with Mark Richt...he has "dead eyes"...also looks like he got the politician chicklet tooth cap treatment during the last week.

Could it be related to the heart attack he had last year?

I doubt it...he didn't have those eyes and teeth last game.

It's not like they get any press...after all they have a basketball player on their uniforms. If that isn't prime branding, I don't know what is.

Duke player flexing while running into the end zone just looks wrong.

We put the K in Kwality

Hey y'all. Sorry for my abrasiveness a few days ago. Let the UNC loss stew in my mind too much last week and put me in a very negative place. Love this community and truly do respect each of you. Even when I'm critical of the program, I always want what's best for VT. Looking forward to a Hokie win tonight! Let's go!

Jk...we don't take thing too ser....

Hopefully this drive gives us some time to work on the defense because we were getting spanked on that BC drive.

No one is better at making teams use timeouts on fourth down than us. What an electric quality.

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

We have a stud RB, an OLine full of bullies, and a dual threat QB with big play receivers and a really good TE.

Enough with this "look over at the sideline for 5-7 seconds stuff", line it up and exert your will with tempo

WHY CANT WE SIMPLY WATCH THE FREAKING GAME. PLEASE STOP WITH THE AWUFL CLOSE UP CAMERA ANGLES.

Dammit...they jinxed him!

We put the K in Kwality

54 yards feels dicey for a college kicker. Not sure I like the call

And now we gave them good field position. Great.

I prefer to go for that. Kind of no man's land as a kicker and you give the ball back at the same spot either way.

How can a WR be that wide open?

We put the K in Kwality

Bad decision

Defense has me thinking we may need to steal some more possessions via turnover...

This aged really well.

Looks like we didn't work on tackling this week...

We put the K in Kwality

So...

Same as last week.

D looks just as bad...wow

Our defense is so bad

Edit: haha yes reverse jinx, works 60% of the time every time

We are very lucky...but no complaints.

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

BC loads gun...aims at foot...and fires a clean shot.

We put the K in Kwality

Gotta protect your Johnson better than that

Speaking of that Tennessee had two highlight clips today - a TD run and one of their receivers laying on the ground with a defender above me and just casually kicks him in the nuts. Someone who knows how to do it ought to put a clip of it in here.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

This D is get manhandled already...

BC already has 44 yards rushing. They haven't gotten more than 84 in a game this year. At this rate, they're going to beat that by the end of the 1Q.

We put the K in Kwality

Holy shit, how are we this lucky? Two fumbles to bail our D out. BC is manhandling the line just like UNC did.

Welp...

I will gladly take these turnovers.

They look like the only stops we will get so far.

Fumble bitches!

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Fumble recoveries saving our asses right now

You know what... if BC keeps fumbling in our territory all game, that's cool.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

... Thank God for turnovers

We did have really nice penetration on that play...cause them to run into each other.

We put the K in Kwality

I mean ok I'll take 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

Wow.

VT can't tackle, but they're coming up with these turnovers.

I'm loving our game plan of play bad defense and get a fumble. JHAM BALL

Hokie Club member since 2017

If we could supplement that with some tackles and pass defense, I'm on board.

They cannot score if they can not hold on to the ball!

But defense, please make the tackle!

I prefer it when the other team is imploding, to be honest.

Slow your scroll.

Soooo does Hamilton know what he's doing ?

Y'all remember a few years ago when we would force a ton of fumbles and seemingly not recover any of them? Ironic that our luck changes on that during a year like this.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I understand that almost every team in the country is struggling with tackling because of no spring and covid protocols, etc etc.

However, we look particularly "soft" and I don't say that as some kind of generic angry guy screaming at his tv kind of way, but more of just a casual observation based on what we've seen so far.

You're not wrong.

That bud expression is about right

LOTS OF HERBERT PLEASE

Yeah, dude is just... how the hell did he end up at kansas....?

Hello herbert

It shouldn't take 30 seconds to get the play in from the sideline.

But it give the VT defense more time to get themselves together

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Herberts vision is insane.

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

Who is this Herbert character?

We should feed him the rock

Hooker left Tay out to dry there. Great job to hold onto that.

Tre was wide open for the TD down the sideline too that play ...

Maybe we can win a 49-47 game. In Herbert we trust.

Herbert's vision is great. It reminds me of David Wilson's vision

Did the same thing during the UNC game. The way to keep a good offense (and a subpar defense) off the field is to run. We didn't give it to Khalil enough...

Herbert should have 20-30 carries a game. Less than 15 in the first half is shameful

The biggest joke of a VT defense I've ever seen

We are sooooo bad at defense

Sigh. Should have been stopped before the 1st down

That was painful to watch because it felt emblematic of our defense to that point.

This D is doo

Well that was fun

What the hell was that?!

He was out I see

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

2 defenders, not a single arm used to even attempt to tackle.

He stepped out, but still pathetic. What are the coaches doing at practice?

And usually arm tackles aren't the greatest anyway... Not good...

Hokie Club member since 2017

Doesn't matter that he stepped out, their offense can do whatever it wants with our D

^^This^^

And we still refuse to give Herbert the football...

Is coronavirus over yet?

The play following the Amare Barno tackle was what really kept this drive going. Murray gave up a 30 yard pass play on 2nd and close to 20

I almost wish we went out and got a completely different style DC. Even with Bud the last decade, our defense has not learned the basic fundamentals of tackling

Well I thought we should win against BC but I'm not feeling like we will. We are getting nothing on defense. Unreal. I'm not sure who we'll beat with this defense. I mean it's getting to the point where it's not even serviceable.

Our defense did better when he was out with COVID.

At this rate it may be his only season. They played clearly better when he was nowhere close to the sideline

We are so soft at the point of attack

So, according to bovada this morning, we are 13 point favorites...make that make sense

This defense isn't stopping any team this season.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I think so far BC has converted 10 of their 5 third downs. At least thats what it feels like so far.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

When the double the yards needed, it should count that way.

We put the K in Kwality

The defense is looking like an FCS school playing a P5 tackling wise

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

I think the post mortem of the Fuente era will be that they could never put a complete team together. The offense was bad when Bud had a good defense and a great offense will be wasted by the worst defense in our lifetimes.

Just can't explain it.

We have got to do something to create movement. We are receiving blocks and getting handled. Either sit back, or blitz.

We put the K in Kwality

Clemson very well might drop 100 on us later this year

Tisdale just got dragged for 5 yards on that tackle. Yikes

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

give him a break, he is like 6'3" 195

clearly a guy who suffered from not having team / s&c supervised workouts

I wonder how much better our form tackling would be if covid was never a thing?

Hokie Club member since 2017

I dunno, other teams seemed to not forget how to do it.

WR was wide open with three guys just looking at him.

We put the K in Kwality

Our D is flatfooted....all of them. We sit and wait. Don't pursue and attack. Weirdest thing I've seen. Especially since our OL is driving and pursuing blockers down field...thing D would have noticed.

We put the K in Kwality

Ashby looked like he was stuck in mud/playing in slow motion.

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

That's called the JHam stare down. It's a new wrinkle in the defense

Hokie Club member since 2017

This defense is remarkably bad!

Screw it

That was the drive we delayed for awhile.

No idea why we were favored

We may "surpass" 2018 this year.

This decense is just awful.

This looks like a crappy d2 program defense .

The defense is still awful.

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

What has happened to Ashby this season? He's been practically invisible out there

The lack of dline recruiting is finally showing its head. We need some of these recruits to outperform their ranking.

Yeah our defense is just bad. No sugar coating it. This defense sucks. We don't have an answer for anything right now.

Our lack of recruiting on the defensive side of the ball is glaringly obvious this year. Bud's scheme masked so damn much.

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

If our defense keeps playing like this we lose by 4 TDs tonight.

This is worse than the 2018 defense - they're every bit as bad but not young anymore.

J-Ham's body of work is bad right now...very bad.

Few more beers and I might do all my Christmas shopping from these commercials

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

Well, it should probably be 21-3 at this point. so there's that.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I don't see more than 2-3 wins left on this schedule.

Well Fuente has fucked up all the other streaks, might as well fuck up the bowl streak as well.

Which would be epic in a year where everyone is bowl eligible

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 feel like Fuente definitely asked for an experienced defensive coordinator and the braindead athletic director wouldn't go over $1M per year salary because reasons.

You're seeing VT's commitment to football right before your eyes tonight.

VT panicked and went with the Bud Foster recommendation. Did not think Odom wasn't going to sign but Arkansas threw $$

Like I know we don't have SEC money but it's so hurtful to read stuff like that. I want them to be all in on football like me and I'm just a random alum.

Bowl streak is fine. The NCAA got rid of the win restriction this year. That is probably the only reason.

Oh I mentioned it.

Just saying it would be so Fuente to get left out in a year where literally everyone is eligible

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

Can we score a touchdown now?

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

Yes.

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

When BC is a more appealing football option than VT to recruits you as the VT head coach should be looking for a new job.

The defense is embarrassing. Out of position and soft. Just ugly.

It probably should be 21-0 again. This defense is atrocious.

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

Defense. What is that?

It's an illusion
It's all an illusion

Should I start worrying about the Liberty game?

Yes

VB born, class of '14

Our defense is so damn bad that anyone can beat us.

It's pathetic in Duke and NCSUs part that they didnt

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

New scheme that the LBs we have arent really suited for, walk ons in the secondary for 3 weeks, our offense is going to have to carry us for a few weeks. We do look better than last week but still not good.

I'm not sure what game you're watching, but we do not look better than last week.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Meanwhile UNC looks like garbage against a crappy FSU team

Do our defensive coaches actually coach during the week or do we just play volleyball or softball? I find it hard to believe we are this bad. Like you actually have to try to be this bad

BC's special teams appears to be not good...which is good for us maybe, I'll take the field position

Damnit I'm out of bourbon.. dare i make the beer switch...?

I think I got my monkey's paw wish from the days when I wished the team didn't need to lean on the defense... Sorry

Is it bad that my excitement for a TD is immediately tempered by thinking how quickly will BC score on their next drive?

Hooker is the Truth since 2018.

If you do it right Hooker has always been the truth

Wide open. Nobody near him

The closest person was Belmar??

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

Yep, leave the guy open who has more catches this season than Tre Turner, James Mitchell, Tayvion Robinson and Kaleb Smith combined. Not important to cover him.

Nobody within 5 yards of the receiver on 3rd and 10

Good God how are we this shitty on defense

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

And wide open too! The TE is QB's favorite target so why play so loose on him?

Our DL hasn't been close to this QB. Say what we want about the other positions, but if we had a DL that could do.......anything, it would help out a lot.

BC 100% on 3rd down tonight (4/4). Two of those were 3rd and long

Is coronavirus over yet?

They should take a knee on 1st and 2nd and just play the 3rd down.

Dax in this series...looks better against the run...HE'S RUNNING FORWARD...instead of taking himself out of the play. Maybe that will help?

why did we fire Wiles!!?!?!!?!

Because his recruiting is a major reason why the D is where it is now

Fair point.

Not game related, but how is UNC down 17-0 to FSU

I don't think it will hold up. UNC appears to be the better team by far but big plays are killing them.

We will literally have to score a TD on every drive the rest of the night.

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

RMFW would like to have a word

Man don't get me wrong I loved RMFW, but Herbert just has that extra factor we haven't had in nearly 20 years.

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 for some reason see Lee Suggs. He's a power runner, more speed than you give him credit for, but great vision and a between the tackles runner.

And he's also a TD machine. TD Lee has that effect too.

I don't disagree, but I did say since KJ and since KJ outlasted Suggs here, it still counts.

Boom. Lawyered

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

Can we please score a TD before the end of this half and another TD to start the second? That would be nice.

Definitely don't leave BC with any time after this drive.

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

It's bad when the ACCN announcers are making excuses to why our coaches can't figure out how to unleash Blackshear.....

Incredible punt coverage ... almost

BC has and OL named Mahogany...bet he smells nice.

We put the K in Kwality

Smells nice but super dense

Well, the plan to score on our first drive of the second half sure didn't work.

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

oh come on

Worth the hit

I don't know how much ass Oscar Bradburn is getting, but it is mathematically not enough

Chicks love the punter

DL push looks much different that last few series.

Like actually there.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm not sure why BC even bothers running. They can pick up 15 yards whenever they want through the air

Gotta love YoutubeTV. I havn't had to sit through one of the commercials you guys keep mentioning

Why do I feel like this is going to be a 40-38 game when it is all said and done?

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

As long as we're the 40

We put the K in Kwality

Why is it when they need 12 yards, our DBs sit back with a 13 yard cushion?

Robber coverage?

Robber is out with COVID.

This is without a doubt the worst defense ever put on the field by a VT football team.

Google the 1950 team. They gave up 61 to Quantico.

3rd and 2...they gain 3.

We put the K in Kwality

It could be 3rd and 15 and they'd get 16

Is coronavirus over yet?

Reed seems really ineffective. I've heard he's hurt

Great defense by Strong there!

Is coronavirus over yet?

What a play by Dorian Strong!

Dorian Strong is gonna be so good in a year or two

VERY impressive play from strong

OK 3 and 10- what are the odds???

What? A STOP?

Edit: Oooppsss.....4th and 10 what are the odds? 1000%

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Of course they get it.

We put the K in Kwality

WIDE. OPEN.

We ain't winning the TOP today.

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

I honestly wouldn't have felt bad about betting my house on them converting 4th and 7.

4th and 7

Wide fucking open 15 yards downfield

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 are sooooooo bad.

We aren't fundamentally sound at any level

Is coronavirus over yet?

Defense is a complete joke

This D is inept

I sure do hope that our offense is ready to score a touchdown.

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

And they score a TD on the next play

Jesus Christ the Hamilton experiment is an abject failure 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

I get that we have a new DC, a new scheme, and players who haven't practiced a whole lot. But when the fundamentals are so terribly broken, you have to wonder what in the heck is going on throughout the week.

Is coronavirus over yet?

51 put on ice skates by the QB there

If Deablo doesn't leave Long QB has no where to go

We had multiple chances with third and long downs on defense and they were still able to drive it down there

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

BC ain't scared of a 3rd and long OR 4th and long. Not. Good.

Hokie Club member since 2017

Deablo has to make that play.

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

I figured it wouldn't matter if BC started the drive at the 1 or the 20

Hey, did you guys know the defense is a hot dumpster fire?

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

I wish it was actually that good. I think this is the Cherynobel fire level defense.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

There's no other way to put it. Our defense sucks.

I knew we would miss Bud, but this is a joke. This defensive staff is not P5 quality

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

Kinda all comes down to that PF on Reed was a little ticky-tacky. He was in motion of hitting him when he let the ball go (and made the effort to hit him in chest vs. head). We kinda just start sitting back again after that. Lost our aggression.

We put the K in Kwality

Is there an actual plan on defense or is it just go play zone just behind the sticks so they can get the third and long every time?

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

And another 100 yard game for Herbert.

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

feed herbert

This defense isn't going to get better anytime soon. In fact, recruiting on defense will catch up in a couple of years.

Ha! Imagine what that will look like

Is coronavirus over yet?

I imagine my bourbon budget will be higher

Gotta love the Herb

Juice saves our ass again

He is just so impressive.

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

I feel like we're the Virginia Tech Herberts atm

Hookers and Herberts?

Even a bad run for HH gains 4.

We put the K in Kwality

That puts Herbert over a 100 yards rushing in a game again

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

123 actually

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Barely got that one yard

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

Hot damn that kid can run

Blackshear with nice block.

We put the K in Kwality

Welp, the defense might suck donkey balls, but the offense is pretty darn good

Not your Beamers VT anymore, that's for sure

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

Does Hendon have the smallest shoulder pads in CFB?

How come when we score I get depressed that we are going back on defense?

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Big play Bert is unreal. Hooker is running this offense at HIGH OCTANE.

Also, for everyone who isn't a two screen type person, you're probably going to get to watch a whole hour of Bama Georgia game after ours ends... that started at the same time... because CBS lol.

We gotta decide. Is it Herb or Bert? Both great nicknames.

I swear whoever operates the graphics for ACCN doesn't even watch the game, they are incapable of changing the down and distance until one of the announcers says what it is and even then the announcer is usually wrong about it and the graphic goes up incorrectly.

Tell me again. Which is the better runner Hooker or Burmeister?

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

I'm gonna slit my fucking wrist with a Spurtle if I see one more of these ads

Can you imagine if you got your tongue stuck in one of those?

I'll take that over the same election ads over and over again that we are getting in SC.

THIS GAME IS DRUNK.
