Let the over hype begin- da bak for at least a week
Chick-fil-a bowl against Georgia as pretty darn pathetic.
Disney was also willing to pay for 50% of the production. So it wasn't quite give us more money. Now some reported they wanted 50/50 on all spidey stuff like venom 2, sinister 6, etc. But they would pay for the right to make more money.
We don't know how he was prioritized on the VT recruiting board but it doesn't make any sense to call it a big whiff just because 247 and Rivals talent evaluators were way off.
I know DCWilson gets hammered because of his, well, unique way of stating things. But he's not wrong. This is a defense that can't afford to lose anyone, especially at DE where we have no depth. A few badly timed injuries, and suddenly we're playing a 210 pound walk-on on the edge.
Even if the guy just flat out couldn't play, then that means this is either a bad whiff in the recruiting process, or a failure to develop a player. Either one is a huge disappointment.
There is no positive spin to put on a former highly regarded recruit leaving the team 9 days before the start of the season.
Obviously it is practice for the post game for Nov 29 after we have asserted our dominance yet again and Bud like Frank goes out with a win in Lane North.
yup - i'll take it. no upgrades needed
Pretty sure this was the inspiration for that drill
There was mega hype.... I could be wrong, but I feel like that game was the first time ESPN used their "skycam". Either ever, or at a college game.
They should drop the plates on their Beat Tech paver when they're done. Maybe that'll get them over the hump this time around.
This is tough because what is the criteria?- the impact of the loss, the way I felt, most time invested by fans for an awful result?
Here's my list:
1) Worst destruction of NCG hopes- 2005 Miami. We win that game and beat a top 25 FSU team in Jacksonville, Tech gets its rematch with Southern Cal. '07 vs BC a close second.
2) Most head scratching loss? Kansas in '08 Orange Bowl. Should've won game by 27+. Also the most frustrating as I drove from Richmond and spent a ton of cash on that one (senior year at VT).
3) Worst feeling loss- '07 vs BC. Sat in the North Endzone getting soaked for four hours just to watch that awful ending. Also the second to last time I broke something after a loss (2014 SCF Game 1 was the last....had to plaster a hole from my empty bottle of Johnny Walker Black when DG flubbed the puck)
4) Dumbest loss- '10 vs JMU.
5) Most "what the heck just happened"? '04 vs NCSU. I thought the Pace kick was good from where I was sitting.
That might just be a corn then cause at memphis with Novell they ran the RBs a fair amount and its continued even more under Novell, which had 2 RBs go to the NFL. Lynch never ran as much as the QBs at tech.
Evan's did run a ton, even more so that we ran Logan. But neither Willis or Jackson came close to Evans. Evan's also did a lot of single reads and run. Not something an offensive coordinator really controls.
I'm gonna put this out there as a call for help. I am currently in a position where I will not be able to watch anything on ACC Network. My cable providers do not offer ACC Network and because I live in a US Territory I can't get access to Hulu TV, YouTube TV, Playstation Vue, etc. I have tried to backdoor my way into those cable cutting services via VPN servers to fake my way into the US but they all seem to have identified those VPN servers and boot me. I don't want to get Guamed and miss those games as this will be the first time in 6 years that I will be able to be home and watch every game but it looks like I am going to get Guamed. Anyone have any ideas on other services that I might be able to use to watch those games? Any help would be appreciated.
Villanova at Colgate
Youngstown State @ Samford
Miami (FL) vs Florida
Arizona at Hawaii
Actually it's hard things together.
👆This! From the highest high of winning at Ohio State to crapping the bed at home against ECU one week later. So infuriating!
Clemson doesn't have as many Olympic sports as us if I remember correctly. They have club teams for students who still want to rep their school playing a sport that they love, but they aren't funded by Clemson's athletic department. This might be an unpopular opinion, but we should consider doing the same.
There should also be alcohol sold at games for the love of everything that is holy.
Practicing the vitals after their inability to drop to the ground and recover 2 fumbles that cost them a 15th straight loss...
I implore you to look up the history of elite 11 QBs. There are tons of flops who were much higher ranked than QP and failed at blue blood schools.
Temple was a conference game at the time
We were up against Temple and still lost. It hurt so bad. Temple wasn't just bad for a season or two.
But he had awesome hair.
I know. Like, he has to be just as confused as the "players."
"I got suited up and grabbed my whistle for this?!"
Honestly I bet that is hard as shit though
