Great win with some young players stepping up under pressure. Nolley had a tremendous first game.

Oh and FAM!

Landers Nolley walking out that stadium like:

via GIPHY
FAM! Hell of a performance from the kid, scored damn near half our points...

That felt like one of those games we would've lost in the ACC two years ago. Mike Young is all about the details and the fundamentals, you can see it already. Never seen our team rebound so we'll. Just wait till we get a big man that can rebound and provide the outlet pass. Great first win. Like what I'm seeing so far.

I hope Nolley has a long career at VT but I wouldn't be surprised if we have another NAW on our hands.

Good problem to have

HOKIES

Clutch block by Wasaba Bede late!!! /eyeroll

#38-0

I thought I misheard the announcer at first but then he kept saying Wasaba over and over.

You almost heard correctly. He said it that way bc after that block, Bede was like "whuh-suh, B?"

"That's it guys. Let's get out of here. That cold drink's waitin' on us, let's go." - Mike Young after win no. 300.

WE STILL A BASKETBALL SCHOOL FAM.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

Clutch! And I love that CMY picked up his 300th win in his very first game as a Hokie.

I'm just here to sling some legs

I. Like. Winning.

Super pumped we beat them in front of PJ Hall.... Fam!!!!!

"Roll Tyrod"

Hell yeah, nothing better than starting the season with an ACC win baby. Starting things off right

The NCAA didn't want Nolley to play because they were afraid he'd break the game

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

New coach? 10 new players? Only 20% returning scoring? First game on the road in the ACC? None of it stopped us from getting the win FAM!
LET'S GO!! πŸ¦ƒπŸ€

I don't know what a Hokie is, but God is one of them!

In a season where we're ranked near the bottom of the preseason conference rankings, it feels damn good to get off to a good start in conference play. FAM!

You want everyone looking the same way so someone can sneak up behind us?

This team can play LETS GET IT

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

Nolley is the real deal. What a block by Bede to help close out the game.

Bring us UVA. FAM

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Blocked it and got possession. Hell of a play. Clutch free throw shooting at the end too.

Here's a little known stat: Mike Young has the best winning percentage at Virginia Tech in the program's history.

In all seriousness, great win FAM!

The doll's trying to kill me and the toaster's been laughing at me.

I don't wanna be that guy

But I really hate the NCAA for taking away our National Championship last year

You put those words together, those are my favorite words, Popeyes and bahama
- Mike Burnup

Having Nolley and Clarke in last year's rotation will always be one of the biggest "what if" scenarios in Virginia Tech sports history IMO.

"What kind of person would throw away a perfectly good dog?"

Its in the Top 5, for absolutely sure.

In no particular order...

What if Peter Warrick was suspended like he should have been
What if a wind gust took the FSU shot from 30 yards out off course in the women's College Cup
What if the shot that hit the crossbar went in against Wake in the men's College Cup
What if Nolley and Clarke were allowed to play on the 2018-19 basketball squad

Hate to be that guy but you only listed four.

If i was going to add a fifth to your list it would be my number 1 what if...What if Matt Ryan didn't exist? 2007 natty for sure.

Edit: or more seriously...what if J Morgan actually caught the onside kick instead of swatting it to BC players :(

I know I only listed 4, but I just thought of a 5th

What if VIck didn't have a bum ankle for the 2000 Miami game

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 need to stop going down this road or it's going to be a very sad wednesday :/

I also think this one could be something we eventually come back to 20 years down the line

What if Buzz never left VT?

Then again you could also turn this around....

What if Beamer took the UNC job?

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

How about the now classic, what if T-Mobile redshirted in 2007 and as a result played in 2011?

Using /s is for cowards.

What if we had landed any of the high end QB recruits like Tajh Boyd in 2009 so that we didn't have to go with a very raw LT3 after Tyrod left?

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

Sure but redshirting Tyrod was much more of a logical possibility than that.

Using /s is for cowards.

tried to redshirt Tyrod twice (2007 & 2008) and had to burn it both times.

I mean we did burn it but in hindsight we certainly didn't "have to" in 2007.

Using /s is for cowards.

even better what if MV7 doesn't flip into the endzone against JMU, where many believe the ankle woes started!

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

What if Vick doesn't sprain his ankled in 2000

Gobble Till You Wobble

What if Danny Coale caught that ball....

oh wait, am I playing this game wrong? He did catch that ball.

What if head referee Jay Stricherz understood that if there's no irrefutable evidence, you can't overturn a call.

This one's less popular, but I still think it was a big turning point in the game...

What if Jayron Hosely didn't drop the interception against Andrew Luck in the Orange Bowl. That more than likely would've been a pick-6. I know we ended up getting blown out, but that would've been essentially a 14 point swing. Changes the whole complexion of the game.

Although the more important "what if" of that season was Boise St.

Just needed to convert that third down. . .

"That kid you're talking to right there, I think he played his nuts off! And you can quote me on that shit!" -Bud Foster

But if Nolley had a coming out as a badass party with Buzz would he have stayed with Tech? I'm guessing the way VT helped him through the ACT situation made him gain some loyalty to the school and not just Buzz. Butterfly effect.

@hokie_rd

Now I'm not one to overreact but Nolley is winning AP Player of Year as he leads the Hokies to the Natty

So, are we #1 in the ACC?

How does a undersized team of two Jr, a so. and a bunch of freshman defend and rebound like that, first game, league opponent on the road? This team has stones of granite

Could be a post season saving win if we are a classic Hokie bubble team come March.

Let's Go...

Eh, pretty sure we won't be on the bubble after going undefeated in conference play and winning the ACC championship

Great 1st and 300th win for CMY. Great debut for Nolley. Great effort by all the players. Getting a road ACC win in the first game of the season is a big deal for a team with 10 new players.

FAM!

First place in the ACC fam!

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

FAM!

Leading the ACC in basketball!

So are we going to crowdfund a lawyer to sue the NCAA for not letting Nolley play last year and robbing us of the NCAA title? I mean, I'm not rocket scientist but if we get 30 more points every game I'm pretty sure we would have won the title last year.

Tickled is such a tricky word. "Female employee was tickled in the elevator..." could be a #MeToo lawsuit in the making or an anecdote about a genuinely nice coach.

Relax. They also used the name "Beamer", which tells us how to interpret it.

But you're right. Not many people other than Beamer or Young can pull that off.

First off, awesome.
Second, I thought frank wore sneakers, this implies he wore cleats?
Third, This is how you handle winning Mr. Brian Kelly!

What if all sports followed baseball tradition where the managers/coaches wear the uniform...

I think an aging Frank Beamer wearing shoulder pads and a helmet with a headset on would be quite the sight. Maybe a little eye black for intimidation porpoises.

Coulda used the helmet when Cory Holt got him in the ACC Championship game.

I guess this guy might look more intimidating with some eye black, but I'm not so sure...

The answer to this what if is always Jeff van Gundy wearing a basketball uniform.

I think the van Gundy you're looking for is Mike. Also ?mike van gundy tank top" returns no results of mike van gundy in a tank top

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

stan?

whoops, yeah. luckily "stan van gundy tank top" returns no results of him in a tank top either.

Outside it's night time, but inside it's LeDay

perhaps you're thinking of Mike Gundy (not Van Gundy). in which case "mike gundy tank top" yields this image. you're welcome

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

I just got my Gundys mixed up. I expect Mike Gundy to have the majority of his non football sideline pictures to be him in a tank or shirtless.

Clemson sucks at free throws!

Y'all, the Hokies win in Clemson knocked them out of the Top 4 of the CFP rankings!

CMY was impressive in his post game interview too. I don't dislike Buzz, but his often nonsensical ramblings grew a little tiresome when you're really just looking for some insight.

Congrats, Coach!

Laze and Burnop: "What was the game plan and how well did did the team execute it Buzz?"

Buzz: "It really has to do with how well their parents raised them."

....wut....

I really got tired of this as well. It was nice to hear basketball answers about a basketball game.

After this win, I'm totally over that Brent guy.

The game was tied 57-57 with 1:11 left. The final score was a 67-60 VT win. Let the Hokies in the assembly say "Fam".

Landers Nolley had 30 points on 52% shooting from the field and 50% from three in his NCAA debut. Let the Hokies in the assembly say "Fam".

VT outrebounded Clemson 44-36 as every starter snagged at least 4 boards. Let the Hokies in the assembly say "Fam".
