Crowdsource: Favorite Defensive Plays Against UVA During the streak

I am going to put together a hype video for UVA this year, centering around Bud and the defense.

15 years is a ton of ground to cover, so if you are reading and want to help me out, toss up the embedded youtube video, and give me the minute and second mark, and the year the game took place, that would be super helpful.

I'll try to add as much as possible.

Thanks in Advance!

Gotta include the Ken Ekanem/Dadi Nicolas sack pancake.

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

got that slinky neck action

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

That was his last play in a uvanus uniform. After that he transferred to Georgia.

There is nothing in the world like Thursday night in Blacksburg!

2011 Quarters 1 2 3 and 4

I'll go through and get some of the plays I remember after work today.

Definitely not during the streak buuutttt

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

Great note on including Bud's reaction. Iconic moment after that sack.

that one where greg stroman popped matt johns while he was in-bounds and the wahoo sidelines erupted in misplaced whines

also when motu waved goodbye at andrew brown after he threw a punch and was summarily ejected for it

edit: you might get one or two people willing to put the effort into finding the exact timestamp of a youtube video, so good luck!

Chuck Clark's interception with 1:04 left in the 4th quarter to seal the win for Beamer's last game against UVA in 2015

chris ellis wrecking, then trolling, big pouty baby jameel sewell in 2007

I been here since day 0.

Poor move on my part to open this at 8 am on a Wednesday. Now I've got to drink all day

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

Torrian Gray...

Then Jimmy Williams doing it in 2004.

As soon as he got that stop I knew something special was going to happen and lo and behold - next play the fumbled

sauce

That's my favorite as well, and turned out being a game winner. Though looking at now, it would be a big flag for a horse collar.

He also had another big play holding up against a block by an O-lineman (Elton Brown) stretching out a sweep play to prevent a touchdown, forcing UVa to settle for a field goal.

Brandon Flowers jumped route pick before the half in 2007 that allowed us to score a key TD before halftime. BFlower Pick Link

Antone Exum pick in 4th quarter to get us the game winning FG in 2012. Exum Pick Link

Will probably come back and add more to this.

The Exum pick was the first thing I thought of.

Exum game was peak TimeCop. Completely unbelievable how he figured icing Journell twice and going to overtime was preferable to keeping time on the clock for his team to try to score and win.

The forced fumble in OT last year to keep the Commonwealth Cup at home where it belongs.

That was going in no matter what!

Ryan willis running down and saving a sure pick 6

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

Came here to (somewhat) sarcastically say this.

Old sigline: I've been cutting back on the drinking.

New Sigline: lol it's football season.

Also Malleck catch and road grading (what's his name?) in '15?

1:38:35...honorable mention, not a defensive play but Kumah planting Blanding after a fourth down conversion.

1:49:30 same game, everyone's favorite Hokie T Hill with the flop drawing a personal foul.

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

Also add in some shots of the "fixed" logo at Lane North.

Where Logan Thomas decleated that defender after handing off to David Wilson (I think?)

Agreed but I think this is a bud foster tribute.

For me got to be the 2007 Chris Ellis horse-collar tackle of Jamell Sewell in the 4rth quarter. It was a combination of the vicious hit and Sewell saying something to Ellis as he is being escorted back to his sideline and Ellis just sarcastically clapping. It was still a rivalry back then.

If there is no enemy within the enemy outside can do us no harm.

Motu with the scoop and score in Fuente's first year. 2016 52-10 bro.

The blocked punt in 2014

There are wolves and there are sheep, I am the sheep dog

2006 1st quarter 9:35 - Swing pass goes from an open catch to getting swarmed by 4 Hokie defenders for a loss. Classic Foster.

Dax pointing to Perkins to leave the field last year.

don't know the time but here's the link.

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

I remember in 2019 where every pass by Perkins was intercepted and returned for a TD.

That never happened.

He was too busy being sacked and fumbling to actually get any passes off.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Watching some of these clips, I don't remember so many of these games being that close. But damn...when they need to score at least a field goal and the defense makes an interception, or sacks the QB on 4th down...that feels good.

Trying to think of most memorable defensive play.......but my favorite play was the Logan Thomas block in 2011 to spring David Wilson for a TD.

gotta love the fan at 2:00:51 of that clip. "TFW you remember that Tech owns your ass in football and always will."

Love the final defensive sequence where Bud sprints down the sideline fist pumping after he brought the blitz on 4th and 10 and gets the sack.

All of these plays are getting me so hyped. Terry Tate office linebacker is in the building.

Bud took a couple nut shots from that clipboard along the way...

Does anybody have the "Why can't we be friends?" satire video of the VT/LOLUVA rivalry?

This should be your opening to the video.

Sometimes the best defense was a bad offense.

Nothing sums up the last 15 years of UVA football better than this
