#25 Superstition Thread: Volume 2

Last year, we summoned the power of the #25 and rode that magical fairy unicorn to heights we thought were unattainable last season.

The #25 campaign worked its magic the last two games of last season and helped establish a secondary voodoo curse upon LOLUVA which enabled them to find countless, yet very original ways to choke away last year's contest...

Today, we have ventured back into familiar waters with a national ranking of #25.

Our game vs. Shittsburgh is on 11/23. Simply put: 1+1+23=25. Coincidence, I think not.

#25 jersey - TBD, but predictions are welcome.

** Keeping with tradition, any comment nearing 25 should be legged up to 25 and remain at that.

** If we as a community truly love a post, then I would love to see a new honor bestowed upon TPK, one of a 250 leg post.

Robinson gets the #25 and takes a punt and a catch to the house!

I was thinking the same.

If we stretch the #25 to pure Beamerball I would be ok with Dax representing as well after his performance of late.

The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about turkey leg votes

Whoever the upman was that recovered the onside kick should get the #25.

That's nice, but what about 2525?

I thought about putting that actually, but wasn't sure if that was too far off a stretch.

The team that played duke earlier in the season is ranked with two games left.

" That's nice but what about 2525"

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

I got 25 problems and pitt ain't one of them!

Prediction: Pitt will score less than 25 pts. Good guys will score more than 25 pts

EatShitPitt < 25Pts < VT

Let's Go

HOKIES

We will have...

...25 receptions against Pat's DBs where he thinks we pushed off.

...25 first downs.

...25 minutes of ToP in the first 3 quarters alone.

...25 points more than them when the final whistle blows.

...25 yards of rushing allowed.

Had to down vote you because you were at 26. Now, I need 25.

Hooker will average 25 YPC on the ground.

McClease will also average 25 YPC.

Meanwhile Hooker will exceed 25 YPA passing

I downvoted the topic score to keep it at 25. Will that work?

Leonard. Duh.

I'd like to see both Garbutt and Crawford rocking #25 at some point this season.

Here for that sweet, superstitious #25 karma

We will average 25 points per play.

Pitt will have 25 penalties including two called on Narduzzi

Narduzzi will be ejected from the game and suspended for the next 25 games for, and I quote, "being an asshat."

Tayvion pls for #25

I am only replying here because at this point it is #25 from the top.

Let's Go

HOKIES

Hooker will be 25/25 for 250 yards in addition to a 25-yard TD run. Deshawn McClease for #25

On Pitt's 25 yardline, there will be a tipped pass, which will again be hauled in by Dax to extend his interception streak.

Dax will return it 25 yds for a TD to put us up 25 touchdowns with 25 seconds left in the game

That tipped pass will go 25 feet into the air and take about 25 seconds to come down.

"It's always great to beat UVA, that makes us all smarter and better looking for a couple days".

Frank Beamer wore twenty-five.

^ That's 25 letters. I did it!

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

#25 goes to Phil Patterson this week, who is normally #8, because we will get our 8th win this week when #8 is wearing #25, and VT will dominate its opponents not 24/7, but 25/8 for the rest of the season.

Patterson will catch a 25 yard TD pass to make the score 25-0 with 10 minutes left in the first quarter (25 minutes left in the half) up from 17-0, after a successful 2 point conversion gives us 8 points on the 25 yard TD.

Hard, smart, tough.

25 x 25 = 625, aka the average number of fans attending a Pitt home game. Eat shit Pitt & Fuck Pat Narduzzi

I'm not usually one for superstition. But I'm also not one to fix what ain't broke.

Agreed ^^^. . . I shaved the beard after the Dook game and for some reason have had the urge to repeat this every Saturday morning. Go figure.

Duke was the only game I didn't bring baked goods to the tailgate. That can't be a coincidence.

25 ounces is the exact amount of a fifth of whiskey. I was happy to find that out. If I go beyond a fifth during a three to four hour span of tailgating/downtown, I will be too drunk to enjoy the game by halftime. I was a shitshow last time I tried to go beyond that

I have nothing meaningful to add. Just here for dem sweet legs. Something something 25!

25รท25=1, as in 1-0 this week, fam.

How about we hold Pitt to 12 yds of passing and 13 yards of rushing? Or even better 0 yards passing and -25 yards rushing from all the sacks?

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:

Dang you're already at 25 legs and this is my favorite: " Hey Patrick, know what's funnier than 24? 25..." ๐Ÿ˜‚

I guess I'll show up and give out a buncha legs

EDIT BECAUSE ITS GOING TO BE HARD TO GET EVERYONE TO 25 LEGS THE MORE NEW POSTS WE GET

1) Does anyone have any idea what Bud Foster's number was when he was a linebacker at Murray State? I've been googling for minutes and the answer is not apparent. Even wikipedia doesn't list any year of Murray State football between 1947 and 1997.

2) Fuente was definitely 12.

According to the recent "Thank You, Bud" video, Bud was #43 because they show a pic of him right at the beginning while CFB is talking.

8 sacks, 3 pick 6s, 4 scoop n scores, 6 blocked punt TDS, 2 blocked fg TDS, 2 safeties. 25 defensive/special teams masterpieces. 99 points because, as someone up above said, I got 99 problems but a Pitt ain't one.

Slightly erratic, mostly sane, always a Hokie.

I just gave out 25 legs in this thread.

Here for them sweet 25 legs. Go Hokies!!

Well, since we've not reached 100 yet, I'll add another. We need some time to cut off comments though as each comment having 25 and only 25 net legs is most important. There are a few posts throughout this thread that are shy of 25, so get to legging folks.

I think it's just leg whoring to post multiple comments here to get multiple free 25s.

People should just be ashamed of themselves. You'd never see me doing anything so obvious. No sireee.
