Get Your Mind Right For Thursday With This GIF

It's been awhile since Box graced us with a glorius gif and I thought VT's first appearance in the big dance warranted a gif a la MascotMock style. Though it doesn't meet the quality of Box's GIFs, it's the thought that counts, right? (My apologies for the changing size Hokie head...)

And because I found this while searching for Bucky images...

If you guys want to get in on the fun, here are some cutouts.

*Disclaimer, I have no beef with Wisconsin. Find myself cheering for them more than many teams in the B1G. Looking forward to a good game. Also, I'd be willing to make this a regular season thing come football season with Joe and Box's blessing.

This is great. Makes me miss the Box.

These are really entertaining, thanks for putting in the work! I think it's more than acceptable for you to make these for all 6 games VT will be playing in the NCAA tournament.

I was hoping we could get that creepy turkeys-circling-a-dead-cat video and replace the cat with a badger.

I was thinking about it, but that one is a lot of work to get the layers right. If we beat Wisconsin I'll give it a go with a wildcat.

Gotta believe, baby!!!

If you play it, they will win.

I love Overwatch...take your god damn turkey leg

Good game, though I've been playing it so much I'm getting a little burned out. Maybe it's just me but I always seem to get the teams filled with whiny ass clowns that think they are best Overwatch player of all time and wait what, why are they dead, that's totally the teams' fault and not their own! I was just turning chat off to ignore them but....well, trolling them is a lot more fun *especially* when I go to tank with Mercy :D

Wait...I enjoy trolling them when I go Mercy with a tank....

You guys should pick up Titanfall 2. The player base has grown kind of stagnant and it was doomed from the beginning thanks to a horrible launch date (BF1) but it's still a decent size and all the DLC is free and they're continuously updating it.. It's only $20 right now at Best Buy for GCU members or $25 at Amazon. I highly recommend it. Best multiplayer game I've played since CoD4.

I got burned out cuz tbh...they put out too much content and I just didnt want to buy that much...also I'm bad at FPS so that had something to do with it too.

I think that's just pc gaming community in general haha. Overwatch got a lot of people that played League of legends and that's how the LoL community can be.

How do you practice this game. I've never played anything like it and I am horrible. There are so many options I don't know how to start. It's also hard coming from playing FPS like COD for so many years.

You kind of gotta take your lumps in quick play for a while before you really find your favorite heroes. I've put in an embarrassing # (over 200 hours worth, honestly) of hours on this game, and I, just this past weekend, started training myself on Winston.

I came from COD-only style shooters and never played LoL/Dota/etc. It took a bit of practice, but now I have more fun with Overwatch than I ever had with COD

So I learned a lot from streamers on twitch...alot of streams arent good for teaching but others I can learn a lot (i.e how to do the genji dash/melee combo before the nerf). Also as the guy above me states, just chugging away until you eventually "git gud." For Overwatch streams I like Seagull a lot (he's the one who showed me the genji combo). I've heard moon_moon is good for tanks. Adam (plays for C9 professional team) had a good support stream to watch but he doesnt have a set schedule yet i dont believe, plus his commentary is meh but he's all that i know of.

Seagull imo is the go to for all though...he eventually plays all roles over the course of his streams

Hit up practice mode and you can select a couple different options - static target practice, moving target practice and full maps vs AI. Great way to try out a character and all their abilities in a low pressure environment.

I remember last time we came into the tournament an 8, playing a 9 from Wisconsin. Hopefully this year we will look better against the 1 in the second round than we did that year.

I am pretty sure Nova doesn't have a guy named Larry Bird on their team. GO HOKIES!

I thought he was referring to the 1996 win over UW-Green Bay in the 8/9 game and blowout loss to eventual champ UK in round 2.

This would be correct!

That is the one I remember.

I was teaching high school algebra at the time, and used different concepts for picking brackets based on odds of an upset as an excuse to watch the tournament during math class. A couple of the students got the whole class homework by talking trash after the VT-KY game, and then had to listen to a lecture on how valuable a lesson they were learning on the value of knowing when not to talk trash.

For those that are into stats, the winning bracket was chosen blindly by assigning cards per upset. (one black for a 1 losing, for red for a 4 losing) and draw to see who loses. It beat out whoever did the bracket on TV, Vegas, assuming higher cede wins, and all the students and teachers that participated. Rolling the dice (electronic random number generation program) to determine a winner based on Vegas odds was near the bottom, finishing worse than a 50-50 coin toss no matter the odds.

I actually remember us being pretty good in the first half against kentucky in 96...and then the wheels fell off in the second.

This is going on my Lieutenant's desk after he leaves for lunch. He's a Badger. Already walked in this morning with my VT flag draped on his chair.

Well, on the plus side, Wisky can't delay this game until 2024 like their promised football series with us.

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

We'll have Drew Harris by then.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Fuck Wisconsin...and Pat Narduzzi...and Matt Ryan

Or this one

Bumping to see if anyone is interested in bringing back MascotMock (I'm willing to do the leg work) for football season.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

The last football Mascot Mock that I remember was before Duke in 2013. And we all know what happened then. I'm not superstitious, but maybe I'm a little stitious...

I think Hatin' On has taken its place, but it could be fun to revive it.

Yeah, didn't want to impede on any other weekly postings nor did I want to step on Box's toes. I don't mind doing it - might not be a gif every week but the cutouts and photoshops are pretty easy.

I would like to know about the biology of the trees. This would overlap the Hatin' On but I do like hatin' on.
