ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

FUCK ME TOO!

Not a fan of the whole me too movement?

Oh hell yes fam!!! We won!!!!

Were you sitting on my lap because you were sitting in my lap :) All jokes aside, these guys played their FU*king balls off. The crowd, the energy, the stuff! That ridiculous fade dime from QP4 was a wet dream come true. I did leave a bit early because dude behind me started screaming personal shit about Ryan and I didn't want to punch him in the throat. It was bad. This game and the energy has me thinking these bois are starting to buy in.

Should have just moved seats. There were plenty.

Shouldn't have to really. I was in my seat. I removed myself from a situation that would have ended in a fight and jail time.

Repeat comment

I mean, I'm not commenting on whether it was right or not lol. I'm just saying one of the options meant you got to stay and witness one of the craziest games in VT history, rude fans be damned.

I totally get that and knew what you meant. I sit with my family and in-laws and felt it best that I removed myself at the time. I was at the tailgate for the OT's right outside screaming and pissing whenever I felt like it, haha!

Close shot of Sticking It In

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.

Brings tears to my eyes.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I've been waiting a long time for the band to play my song!

"If you think you can or if you think you can't, you're probably right." Mark Twain

One of my good friends from Tech was the reason they stopped playing it. He played in the band and on the Thursday night Clemson game they were playing stick it in and ESPN put him on national TV doing the dance.

The next day all the old folks in the Blacksburg area were upset about this ludicrous dance and song and Weaver pulled it.

What's
Important
Now

My personal theory is that the band decided that the man that banned it is now dead and his ban died with it. We've been downhill ever since the ban, so fuck it! And played it anyway.

I've heard band recruitment is way down, and the director felt he had to make drastic changes to stay competitive in the ACC.... /s.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

For a short while, the HT drumline had it learned and would play it every once in a while when Weaver was still around. The ban could only be enforced on the MVs, and our drumline was harder to hear, so we could get away with it.

Now with Weaver gone and Dave McKee not running the MVs, the ban may not have been technically lifted, but I bet there's little concern of it being enforced.

Well the MV's tweeted out about it and the athletic department used

Stick it in

In the subject line of an email about the game. So I think the ban is gone.

Fam, for real, I appreciate the new OT rules

When did they play it? I didn't hear it. πŸ˜₯

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

Started with 11 to go in the 4th. Continued until the Hokies won.

I really don't know how I messed that then. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

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

It was faint in the background of the stadium noise. I was watching with volume up pretty loud.

I could hear it on the tv... I recognized the drum line for sure

The very last play of the game.

Not sure how you missed it most of the stadium was singing along in the OT plays.

Couldn't miss it in the stadium. It was glorious.

I feel my signature needs to change.... I HEARD IT LIVE AND IT FUCKIN WORKED FAM!!!

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

STICK IT IN HAS RETURNED!!!

The complaint surveys from the Karen's should be great this week.

I noticed the band played a song banned under our previous AD, it is very traumatic for little kids

Heard from those inside the band that they were told to practice it on Friday and given the all-clear to use it in the game.

So ban has been lifted.

VT Class of '12 (MSE), MVBone, Go Hokies!

Yep, they had to practice it Friday and prove they could play it without "thrusting."

I bet that band practice felt a lot like this skit from Key and Peele:

Current Roanoke-Hokie
Go Hokies!

Ha,ha! It did take a couple rehearses to not "thrust." I sure hope it's back to stay. Stick It In is quintessential college football and stuff like this is what, imo, makes college fb > all other sports.

I really wish Fuente showed some emotion.

Man after a tough start to this season I'm so excited for these players.

As for me I definitely didn't expect to have that much fun for the rest of the season.

Using /s is for cowards.

I have no idea how we just came away with that win, but I will take it! Fam!!!

FAAAAMMMMMMMMMMM

FAM I LOVE THIS TEAM!

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

that was a hell of a game to stay up all night for FAM!!

"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

Phewwwww..I have been a mess for the past couple hours but holy shit this team has me all in again, love seeing Ladler, Chatman, QP, etc. step up and will a BIG BIG win out. So happy for the team who was put in a tough spot today.

Also, that's the best Lane has sounded in a longggg time

FAM CALL AN AMBULANCE TO COME PICK ME UP

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I'm so proud of our team today....FAMMMM!M!

I laughed, I cried....somehow this game was better than Cats. Fam!

But seriously what the hell did I just watch for 4 hours?

I LOVE VT LETS GOOOO

That was amazing. I bet the recruits were losing their shit like the rest of us. Hopefully we get some verbals after that insanity.

I was sitting a section to the left of the recruits. At some point in one of the OTs, when Lane was legitimately going nuts for the first time since 'nam, I looked over and saw a lot of the recruits dancing along with the crowd and really taking in the Terror Dome. Tbh it was fucking awesome to watch firsthand our recruits eating up Lane when our fans showing up at their full potential.

I can't talk right now. I've got one big raging QUINCY

FAM

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

If a Quincy lasts for more than 4 hours you find more overtimes

Or a Hooker, FAM

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS YEAR WILL END, BUT I LOVE IT!!!!

FAM!!!

Did we sell ourselves to some 'cruits tonight?

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Have to hope so. Most of the students stayed and crowd was insane for nearly the entire game.

I hope Mack enjoyed sandman again!!!

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

Victory lap around the house with the dogs!!!!

The dogs run when I run, they arent really celbrating.

QP inventing the future!

WE NEEDED THAT FAM!!!

After that blocked FG, I knew we'd find a way. Those guys deserved it. This whole program - the players, coaches, and fans - needed this one. And they got it. This is happiest I've been as a Hokie in a very long time.

STICK IT IN, 6 OT FAM!

I'm exhausted!

QB controversy? Hendon and QP looked great today! I don't even care.

Hey, Willis looked great too in the first half.

Na, QP played great and he played well within himself but our offense was limited with him. If Hooker is healthy then he is the guy.

FAM!!!! Can we get a bunch of dejected Mack brown gifs in giftory?

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

Fam what was going on with Mack's eyeball?

"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

Busted blood vessel.

Yeah, folks were talking about his raging pink eye in the game thread. I dunno what that was. If he thought it would make him look tougher, he was wrong.

Did anybody else notice Mack's right eye? Hope he's alright but beating Dazz Newsome makes me feel so good inside. I'm a terrible person.

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

It was like old school Beamerball. Defenses knew a fullback ISO was coming. Didn't matter. VT would physically impose their will.

...these go to 11.

You know, if you ask Alexa to turn the volume to 12 she'll tell you the volume only goes to 10. You can then ask her to turn the volume to 10 which brings it to max volume. However, if you then ask her to turn it to 11 it will get louder.

Hands down, the best game of Virginia Tech Football I've watched on TV. FAM!

I love the tickle of Dickel in my belly

And it was even better in person!!!!! Best (most exciting) Hokie game I've attended other than 1) the 1986 Peach Bowl(as a student being at VT first bowl win ever on a last second field goal on New Years Eve in Atlanta, and 2) the Win at the Shoe over the Buckeyes!

From the 2018 VT-uva game-"This is when LEGENDS are made!"

Ladler really making some plays there at the end. Was he in at Whip in place of Conner? Thought Conner bad an injury and went out at some point.

I was in the South End Zone with the my '69 reunion classmates watching, yelling, and cheering. What a rollercoaster of emotions but how satisfying was it to see QP cross the goal line right in front of us in the 6th OT. Amazing!

The fade to Hazelton on 4th and 3 took real guts to call and we were rewarded with a beautiful throw and catch for the TD.

It's Time to go to Work

Give Willis credit for that throw. As I said in a post-game comment (I was at the game), Willis made a throw that I don't know if any other QB on the team has demonstrated the capability to do. Justifiably deserving criticism for some of his decisions, he made an incredibly crucial play.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Was there ever any doubt!?!?!?

Apparently we broke the ESPN Win Probability tracker, so that's gonna be a big fucking yes from me.

FAM!

I'll drink to this

If they counted the negative yardage from their 5th and 6th OT attempts we would have about 20 yards more than UNC.

This looks like a cardiogram from everyone in the stadium starting midway through the 4th.

Who is to say he wasn't married tonight and is planning his next wedding already? Never a bad idea to have a plan b in place.

My fiancee would kill me if we scheduled our wedding in the fall.

If I wasn't already happily married, I would marry her sight unseen because of her demonstrated superior judgement and priorities. On the other hand, if she would marry me that would ruin her demonstrated superior judgement and priorities record.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

No, my uncle's. My fiancee and I were huddled around my phone around the corner of a retaining wall listening to the last 4 minutes of regulation and all 6 OTs.

Have three actual QB's thrown a TD pass each in a single game for the Hokies before?

That is an excellent question

"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

It really really is

When was the last time we had 3 QBs play? I remember a game years ago where Tyrod, Glennon and Holt all played vs FSU. 2009 maybe?

2019 vs Duke

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

It was 2008. That game sucked.

We've actually had quite a few games with 3 QBs, just not a lot where all three get significant time. Usually, it's the starter, the back-up providing a breather or to deal with an injury, and then the third stringer thrown in to change it up or garbage time. I think the last time we saw three get significant time was against W&M last year (JJ started, Willis played most of the second half, and Hooker finished it up, as we won 62-17).

Plenty of 3 yd warmup runs FAM!

Inspired by new OT rules to fully dip FAM

I am not sure if it's good or bad that people join TKPC with similar decision making to purchase a buy-one-get-four late night infomercial product.

Either way, welcome and thank you!

People use another decision process? I mean this is what people have been harping on VT to do, we win send them a donate email.

You too should follow this mentality, put a fully dipped link at the top of all FAM threads ... well maybe not the ones of 1-AA schools

TBH I had been meaning to since the beginning of the season since I got a better job this year but was finally watching a game at home and on TKP.

Has there ever been a question as to why we didn't throw the hail mary with 2 seconds in regulation on the 50?

Regardless, defense showed up when we absolutely needed them. FAM!

I'd more like to know why they didn't take a look at it to get the clock right. Should have had at least 5 or 6 seconds on the clock for a potential play.

I love the tickle of Dickel in my belly

Came here to see if this question was asked in the post game. I don't really understand the logic in not trying it. I would have even put Willis in for the throw if they thought QP couldn't throw it that far.

It's not like they didn't see an opposing team do it to us 2 games ago.

My guess: Too much risk with the freshman QB. This site would shut down if UNC won on a turnover off a Hail Mary.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

They would have needed to return it 100 yards. Very low probability.

Unless he fumbles or throws another behind the back pass trying to avoid the sack and it gets picked off.

I was thinking they'd put Willis in on the Hail Mary. Low percentage of conversion but he definitely has the arm strength

That twitter account is gold. I've been laughing at their tweets all season.

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

I don't know what all y'all are talking about. I didn't hear "stick it in." There was some sort of drum cadence that went "Get the win get the win get the win." /s

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

Hendon looks like a Star in the making. I sure hope the injury is minor and he can play in two weeks. His ability to make things happen is something you can't teach and he is only going to get better.

Fu said he was expecting him in the second half, but wouldn't have been at full speed so they kept him out. Sounds like he's ok, just needs some rest/rehab.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

1. Fam
2. Wow
3. This YOUNG team is growing up. We get to see it on the field, which means it's not perfect but they are becoming a real team.
4. I'm ridiculously proud of this team
5. Wow
6. Fuente has shown he can bring a fractured, broken group and able to steadily forge a team.
7. Sorry, wow again
8. Quincy is not ready. He really isn't. But he's prepared, growing and yes, obviously the coaches are bringing him along. He's going to be special, just be patient.
9. Once more WOW. They never quit.
10. I'll end at 10. I haven't been this worked up about a game since the sandman Miami ending game. Thank you Hokies, thank you coaches, thank you TKP

That felt like vintage Lane Stadium again. The crowd roared on defense. The Lunch Pail Defense stood firm. The MVs played "Stick it In!" and the place was rocking until the Hokies emerged victorious. I bounced my way down the stands and into the concourse, high-fiving strangers and belting out "Enter Sandman" with what little shred of my voice was left. Damn, that was fun FAM.

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

I really like a lot of the pieces we have on offense. I feel like we have two stars in the making at QB with Hooker and Patterson. Team showed a ton of fight tonight. I definitely think we need a shakeup with the assistant coaches this offseason, but I like that we basically have everyone back. I hope we can finish this year strong and hopefully win the division. That would be a great spring board along with some new assistant hires to push us into 2020.

I also love that we have a bye week and that the ND game is essentially meaningless. I hope we play like we have nothing to lose and give them a hell of a game. Let's go!!!

Hokies!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I think we just stole UNC's soul tonight. As Goggins would say it was Round 14 in Rocky. We got back up and this is the start of better times ahead.

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

Yo, I may be Cynical asshole, but that game made me believe this year wont be a waste!

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

This university ran a fake degree program for athletes for 20 years and got away with it. I think I hate them more than I have ever hated Miami or UVA.

At unc, you can get a fake degree in less time than it took to play that game.

That run early in the game when he left a unc defender holding his jock at the line of scrimmage had me out of my seat.

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

I know this isn't the right thread for this but man how did the coaches slot Willis over Hooker AND QP for those first 4 games?

Just glad they finally swallowed their pride or whatever, gotta give them credit for the pretty ballsy move to pull Willis after that shaky first series in the 2nd half even after he through the TD right before halftime.

Edit: Think he played 2-3 series in the 2nd half before getting pulled.

Let's Go...

Willis "throwing" that no-look pass behind his back/over the shoulder just sealed his fate for getting any more playing time as a Hokie

Yeah, Fuente seemed more willing to run a high school type offense than let Willis back in there...and rightfully so

It seemed like he was slipping back into old habits not throwing the ball away

at first I was like:

but now I'm all:

We all knew this game was over as soon as the rain started late in OT.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Is it better or worse that it was only some sprinkles. But remember Sprinkles are for winners.

It was like they were playing in a hurricane.

It's Time to go to Work

I need to impart a lesson for anyone attending games in the future;

If you need to piss in a tie game situation, go to the bathroom before OT starts. If that game went 7 OTs, my bladder might have exploded. Thank god Patterson scored. As soon as he crossed the goal line, I ran a 4.4s 40 to the West stand bathroom.

Along with about 5k other fans.

Does Cornelson ever do post game interviews? I see Fu, Bud and then a number of players but never Corny!

Now that I think about it, I don't even know what Corn's voice sounds like.

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

I can tell I spent the entire day with the team I honestly talked to Corn's wife and toddler more than he spoke.

Easily one of my favorite games I've been to in Lane. There were so many times I was sure we had lost the game and somehow our boys just kept fighting and pulled out a huge W. What a day to be a Hokie! 6OT FTW FAM!!!

This is the only way to sum up this game fam

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

Y'all that was wild. I'm still in a partial state of disbelief.

I'm also hoarse and exhausted.

What a win FAM! It was lit!

Couldnt' stream b/c it was a regional game and I'm overseas. Woke up and check to see if there was a FAM thread or not, thinking it wouldn't be as I saw the early score on the ticker. Shocked and happy to see there was. Then I watched the condensed version on Youtube (watching the full replay now)....holy hell. After some uninspiring wins and crushing defeats this team puts on this performance. Looked like the D was dialed in the whole game and gave 100%. Awesome to see QP get in and do well. I bet that place was lit. Not a better performance and atmosphere to have recruits at. FAAAAMMMMMM!!!!

In celebration of a good stuff. The defense was lit at times.

Here is some crazy food for thought:

Prior to 2012, VT had never played in an OT game in Lane Stadium. Since then, VT has played in 7 OT games in Lane Stadium:

2019 vs UNC - W 43-41 in 6OT, Longest OT game in ACC History
2018 vs UVA - W 34-31 in 1OT
2015 vs UNC - L 30-27 in 1OT
2015 vs Duke - L 45-43 in 4OT, First 4OT game in ACC History
2013 vs Maryland - L 27-24 in 1OT
2013 vs Marshall - W 29-21 in 3OT
2012 vs GT - W 20-17 in 1OT

We have lived quite a lot of OT history in the last 7 years. Pretty cool IMO.

2015 vs UNC (Beamer's last game in Lane) was bullshit. The receiver didn't complete the catch, it was obvious, but more obvious ESPN wanted to get on to the next game. The review lasted less than a minute, and it was wrong.

Yup, I was sitting very close to the play, and our section couldn't believe that Beamer's last home game came down to shitty officiating.

Last night doesnt make up for the 2015 game but it was pretty sweet to beat them in overtime after that botched replay in 2015. The replay officials and on field officials should have been fired for that call.

Also, that was the first OT game with the new rules.

VT finally came out on the right side of trivia questions, FAM!

Fun Fact: 2012 GT was my first VT game as a student, and until yesterday I had been to every OT game ever played in Lane.

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

I've been pretty down and out on this team lately. The win is great and all, but the fight and grit is what impressed me most and has given me hope. I can deal with close tough losses, I can't deal with blowouts. This team made me proud. That's the first time I've said that in two years.

Also, I need to see Hazelton's 1st TD grab again. IIRC, that was a one handed grab just like the TD grab from QP. That dude is a freak.

To quote coach Fu, "this team is finding its identity"!

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

Long-time TKP lurker decides to stop moping about his team's struggles, get off his ass and do something to appease the football gods. Gets fully dipped. After last night I believe in football gods, karma, also the tooth fairy, easter bunny and Santa (and bet your arse they are ALL HOKIES!!!).

"stick it in" shirt pls

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Man, did we watch our young defense grow up right in front of our eyes, or what? A healthy HH is absolutely our best QB option but seeing QP make a handful of nice throws was very encouraging. What a game!

A couple things I'm thinking; Farley has come a long way since last season. His coverage has been lockdown level most of the time, and his tackling has improved drastically. Pollard is a dog. We can't forget he is doing this as an undersized true freshman that was expected to need 2 years. I'm in love with his motor. Devon Hunter was absolutely solid. Was he perfect? No. But he looked like he absolutely belonged out there. If he started I think he'd grow in to a great player. We really need a game breaking edge rusher. Ashby played violent and shed blocks. My biggest takeaway over the last 3 weeks on defense has been the improvement in physicality. The D as a whole seems to have found that edge and are embracing it. Big hits, knocking players backwards, sacks, hard hits after completions.

On offense it's evident that Corn doesn't really know what to do unless the QB is the primary running threat. Hooker is bailing Corn out big time with hard runs, good reads, accurate throws and no interceptions. I want to see a more complex route tree. With the receivers we have and Hooker throwing hard and accurate there is no reason we can't throw more wrinkles in the passing game. The offensive line is exploding onto the scene. Is it Kill's influence? I don't know. But since he has arrived, they have done nothing but improve and get more physical. If they continue on this trajectory then the sky is the limit because they have all the physical tools an o line could ever have.

I don't know what happened, but the defense was looking fast, decisive, and hitting hard there towards the end. They just looked better. Something felt right. Whatever it was, I hope it continues.

Head is not tieing up the feet?

Yeah the defense looked like it was attacking instead of defending. I enjoyed see it.

When Ladler replaced Connor, the coverage improved. Chapman held up well replacing Farley. UNC's pass plays began to take much longer to develope, allowing our front 6 (?) to get pressure on Howell, who despite being damn good, is still a freshman.
After the first quarter, the defense looked pretty decent. We played a lot of bodies, including Cunningham stealing a few reps in place of Porcher. But when it came to crunch time, Foster definitely stuck with a core group of defenders. I would be 9-10 players played every snap in OT.
Oh, and I thought Waller played a great game taking out his half of the field. He has quietly been my surprise of the season.
Still a way to go to get to LPD greatness, but I like the young talent. Team speed looked great last night.

Waller deserves his own thread or at least an analysis by French. He doesn't even factor into any plays any more. His side of the field is just a dead zone.

The roar of the crowd when QP broke that 53 yard run really shows why our fans are second to none....Also the crowd noise causing that false start in OT was beautiful. And Hazelton will be playing on Sundays in the near future.

This has to go somewhere. Hope its not lost in the depths of this thread! From Yesterday!

Last night was the first time Lane Stadium felt like Lane Stadium in a long time.

The team did a completely 180 relative to the Duke game. They played hard, played with passion.

That is all we can ask for.

Yes, there are personnel limitation.

Yes, there are coaching limitations.

But if VT football plays hard like they did last night, they will win more than they lose.

I am pleased.

Last night was the first time Lane Stadium felt like Lane Stadium in a long time.

Agreed it got real fun again for the first time in a while.

It cannot be understated that the stadium felt right again during a game where the program went all in on Stick It In. It was such a mistake to ban it way back when, that was the beginning of the neutering of our home field advantage.

Maybe one day they'll be allowed to play the goodbye song over the last 5 mins of a decided game again.

Why not both?

From the 2018 VT-uva game-"This is when LEGENDS are made!"

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

I don't know if this has been mentioned elsewhere, and I don't know if they even showed it on the tv broadcast, but UNC took the field a couple minutes before Enter Sandman. Much earlier than most visiting teams take the field. And as we ran onto the field, their entire team walked out onto the field towards our sideline, almost getting to the hash marks, and stared across at us in a unified attempt to taunt us before the game even started. You could see Carolina players barking and talking shit as our players ran by. Their coaches were making a show of trying to hold them back, but it was all bullshit. It was clearly a planned effort on the part of the whole coaching staff.

Mack Brown made the decision to have his team out there early so they could line up and walk across the field to taunt us as we ran onto the field. This was planned, and in my opinion it's bush league.

I hope this loss really stings. They deserve it.

We noticed that from the West stands as well. You could tell the NC players on both sides were chippy. This one meant something.

They showed it and talked about it on the broadcast. They said that Mack Brown wanted his team to experience the entrance and the juiced up fans because it was a special tradition that he really respects.

That may be true, but they were definitely using it as a motivator to fire up their players.

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

Mack just wanted his team to learn what it looks like to have fans actually care about football. He is trying to teach something! He is the only one that is trying to educate at UNC!

Mack Brown's "aw shucks" act is fake as fuck, and has been dating back to his days at Texas. Absolutely can't stand that guy.

I've heard the exact same thing said of Roy Williams, albeit by Kansas fans. I wonder if it's a unc thing.

Dazz Newsome was a prick the entire game. It certainly appeared they came into this game trying to make some kind of emotional cock on the table statement. Glad it backfired so well. I hope the ride home was miserable.

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

He was jawing at the fans hard after those TD catches looking like a toolbag. Glad we got to shut him up and show him not to go play football at a basketball school.

Remember his dad and brother Deon played for Tech, so he's been a jerk to us since he's been at UNC

It's because we slow-played recruiting him and he was rightfully pissed. Honestly, I kind of respected it as he played angry and good. I would have done the same if I was him.

Which was weird coming from a Beamer led staff.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Ill be honest, i dont a see a single problem with that.

It's not a huge deal. But UNC tried to make a statement and set the tone early. And to their credit, they did that. But we answered. We had an answer for them all night. They came into our house and disrespected us. They talked shit all night and it seemed like they thought they were better than us, but we shut them up and sent them packing with a big fat L.

This has become a pretty heated rivalry and there's nothing wrong with some back-and-forth between both teams. But if you're gonna talk shit and try to pull some intimidation bullshit before the game even starts, you better back it up on the field. But we became the aggressors as the game went on. We were the more physical team and we got stronger throughout the night. But those Carolina players kept running their mouths to both our players and our fans. All of us wanted that game badly. The defense fed off the crowd and the crowd fed off the defense flying around hitting the shit out of people. It just felt good to watch those cocky losers walk out of Lane with their heads down.

That was absolutely the win this program and this fan base needed. A gritty, tough, back-and-forth marathon much better for building deep confidence than a blowout W would have been. And the bye couldn't be timed much better either.

I agree with others, later in the game the D looked BACK. They were playing with speed, energy and aggression. HH and QP3 both standing head and shoulders above RW. HH has looked great since he took over for Willis. Protects the ball, good decisions, runs well and throws *beautifully*. I could watch that HH to TT TD clip 10,000 times and not get tired of it. Perfect, perfect toss.

Deshawn McClease looked great today too. Suddenly we have O line, at least one solid RB, 2 solid QBs and arguably the best receiving corps we've ever had.

It's pretty incredible how much better this team looked yesterday than just a few weeks ago.

Hard, smart, tough.

Paging DCWilson and other negative naysayers where you at? lol

They are thankfully very quiet. Let's keep this going.

Yeah he/she likes to come online and talk trash when things go wrong but is eerily silent when things go right. But no worries - because i've posted this, he and others will still find things to complain about.

Man I was already so invested in the coaching search and trying to build a staff that I liked that now I have to let go of my dreams of being the big whistle next year. Dammit Fuente

Thought about saying something myself for the ole Mack and Locksley love and Fuente hate from early this season. However, I think dc's tone has been better lately and more mature, so props to him.

I'm all aboard the feel good train, but get a little perspective. UNC just had a complete coaching overhaul and has a loosing record. There were some great takeaways from the game last night, but nothing indicates that we confidently go bowling or beat UVA. It sure as hell shouldn't give you the confidence to publicly shame the few vocal members that don't participate in the feel good circle jerk. Your post "won't age well" if we get our shit pushed in against #8 ND similar to Duke. How about we all simply enjoy the win and appreciate that the outlook is not quite as bleak as it was 2 weeks ago?

It sure as hell shouldn't give you the confidence to publicly shame the few vocal members that don't participate in the feel good circle jerk

No but should help put people who wanted to fire Fuente and their circle jerk in place. And I'm fine with that.

You own a katana dont you...

I know I might be in the minority but I actually enjoy dc Wilson's input because he conveys what I usually feel like yelling in the moment but never actually do because I cool down before posting. Not saying I agree with it all but after being on this site for 2-3 years now I like his input and think he gets a lot of hate because his devils advocate takes usually spark arguments.

Is it worth considering whether DC might be a member of an opposing fanbase that only comes onto TKP to rile us up?

That would really be an elaborate ruse considering I'm pretty sure he donates a few thousand dollars a year to the Hokie Club.

Maybe he's just really invested in the ruse

He made a comment on my The Class of 1969 / Facing UNC post that he was in the Highty Tighty Class of 93. The content of his comment included things that only an alumni would likely know. I believe he is legit.

One of my buds got on a BT bus in full cadet uniform one day and the driver looked at her and said "Don't worry about pulling out your Hokie Passport. No way you're wearing all that just to get a free bus ride."

This was the kind of game o missed seeing from the team. Big ups to all those kids on the field. By the time this thing was over it felt like a whole new team out there. Proud of all the kids on the field who gave it their all.

So great to see the emotion and decisive, hard hits on defense and the desire to play a full 60+ minutes...FAM!!!

Dazz Newsome really seemed like an a-hole, hope he finds happiness...FAM!!!

QP and HH certainly are looking the part, gonna be a crowded QB room next year...FAM!!!

Crowd was insane, it was incredible to hear it again on the TV...FAM!!!

Go Hokies!!!!

Did anyone else hear John Laaser describe one play using the phrase "slippery Hooker"?

Because I definitely did.

Yes! I was driving home from from a wedding in NC listening to the game on the radio. When I heard that I looked over at my 15yo son...and we both burst into laughter.

Random comment. For those who watched the game on TV how much better were the Fox sports Carolinas guys vs ESPN and the ACC network. To me they did not come across biased, no low-fives, energy for both teams, got players names correct, actually knew facts about the players (my god they seemed prepared) etc. I enjoyed watching the game - TWICE.

ESPN by far has the worst commentators and production value of all the big sports networks. Fox, NBC, and CBS are so far ahead, and it's not even close. Even the regional Fox channels are better than most of ESPN'S big game crews.

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

My only beef with CBS is their 3:30 slot constantly pushes 4+ hours. They oversaturate it with commercials. But the rest of their package is great.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Yes, because you could watch a game with 6 OTs in that amount of time...

ESPN does the same thing. There's no reason that the elapsed time during the Miami game was within 5 minutes of the UNC game.

ESPN's top crew - Herbie and Fowler - are great. ESPN has like 40 broadcast teams because they cover so many games on so many branches of the main network family (ABC, ESPN, ESPN2) and sub-networks (Longhorn, SEC, ACC, etc). Since we are not able to pull the time slots on the big networks, we'd naturally get stuck with one of their C-teams.

Herbie and Fowler are the best in the business, but the drop off after those two is ridiculous. Even the ONE NFL game they cover every week (MNF) has had garbage production value and commentating for a long time.

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

ESPN has some pretty decent B-crews, but the problem is they're all on the primetime games on the other channels, so you don't see them if you're watching Fowler and Herbie.

McDonough, Blackledge, Levy, and Tessitore are solid. Sadly, Tessitore has not been given any decent support on MNF.

McDonough is my favorite announcer ever actually.

Tessitore needs to be moved back to CFB stat.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

Fair point about McDonough and Levy. I somehow forgot about those guys.

Lately I've noticed that the camera work, picture/sound quality, and consistent replays are all lacking with ESPN compared to the other networks.

Is there a way to re-watch the game and where?

Tom Werme, the play-by-play guy, did play-by-play for the Raycom syndicated ACC Network the last few years. He called our game against BC last year, and the Duke and GT games in 2017. (He didn't call the Pitt game as that was the week Raycom split the network and we got the B-team.)

Idk if it's been pointed out, but Oscar Bradburn and two other players (who didn't make up as far as he did - I know I saw Rivers down below and I think someone else) went into the North stands after the game (I think near the end of Enter Sandman).

Celebrating with Bradburn in the crowd will be a great memory for me. By far the most fun football game I've been to (I'm a senior and I've only missed one home game since I started here). Hopefully that kind of atmosphere continues.

We saw that from section 2. Looked like the specialist went up. Bradburn, Shadley, and Romo for sure. I think there may have been one or two more. It was fun to watch the students engulf them.

On a somewhat related note, Brock Hoffman was running through North Endzone during Enter Sandman. Hyped as hell. He's awesome.

Super pumped for Dax, Tre, Hendon and all the other NC guys that probably still get a lot of crap from the unc faithful for going to VT

Fun game to be at last night, a little long but worth it. Great to see the student section not leave at halftime but on the other hand this team last night gave everybody a reason to stay and stay and stay and stay.... It's been a long time since I saw fans did not want to leave the stadium. It was a glimpse of the past and hopefully a start for the future. GO HOKIES!

Because I've been spending all my sports-watching free time focused on my Nats and my Astros lately, and because I had a house guest from outside the country over the weekend, I sadly didn't watch a single play of VT-UNC. The only updates I got were the halftime scored and the end result.

So my question to TKP is this: Should I bother to watch the YouTube replay of the entire game, or is overtime all I need to watch?

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

Not a true fan unless you bask in the glory of the whole game.

Yes. Watch it all.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Yes. You need to experience the WHOLE thing. It was a good game. We agreed when we left the stadium (and other people had this same opinion) that if UNCheat had won, we would have been disappointed at the loss, but not upset/mad because it was a game.
