This one gets a lowercase fam from me. We want Furman!

Another white bronco? The first one didn't go too far.

FAM!

We have lots of work to do.

Still, I'll take the win.

Thanks for summing it up for me.

I'll leave this here too then.

Using /s is for cowards.

Counts towards bowl eligibility so I'll take the fam.

But seriously uninspiring final margin.

The number 7 team in the nation is down 7 in overtime. I'm sure they would take an uninspiring final margin.

Question: WHY should we care about the #7 team in the country right now? What do they have to do with us, at this point?

Because it's Michigan and fuck Michigan.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

Because we handled business and they aren't. Didn't you post in the game thread to "Not screw it up"? We handled business. It wasn't pretty but we did it.

Correct. Flip side of the coin: they did not win in a convincing enough fashion to alleviate the trepidations of the (majoritah) fanbase. While the victory itself is acceptable (& positive verses alternative), it is still insufficient.

I think you belong in the "Meh" thread. How's about you let those of us who enjoy watching VT play enjoy the win we just watched.

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

I'm in both.

Looks like he's in neither now.

HOKIES

They won though so they must be super happy now. /s

Meh

It was ugly, but a win. Lots of mistakes to clean up. Need to run block and run better period. Our Wrs look good. Ready for Furman. Let's gooooooo

Fam! I'll take the win! It doesn't always have to pretty sometimes.

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

Fam!

We all wanted more from this game but we wait through a long ass offseason to watch the Hokies play. We just notched a W so I'm going to enjoy it and think about the other program issues and stuff another day

FAM!

Not the bagman VT deserves, but the bagman VT needs right now.

We can totally compete for a C-USA title FAM!

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Listening to the post game right now and Mike Burnop sounds seriously depressed (or sick or something). He is doing his job and finding some positives, but he certainly is not his normal self.

Is it basketball season yet?

Meh W fam, but it's a W

Bud's saying the defense can't just go 75-80%, that the guys have to learn that.

He's frustrated by it, but they'll keep working.

Sloppy tackling.

Admitted he made a bad play call here or there.

Guys kept fighting.

Need to eliminate mental errors.

Decent pass rush, got some 3-man pressure and blitz pressure, excited about d-line getting better.

Tipped his hat to the fans and fan support.

He also called out the ODU staff and players (basically) for trash talking and for the "clown show".

Is it basketball season yet?

Ya, also that our guys shouldn't go down to their level

Fuente would never

I just sit on my couch and b*tch. - HokieChemE2016

ODUs QB was starting to feel the pressure quite a bit in the second half of the game.

It's Time to go to Work

That was my biggest frustration of this game...if we could've taken down Smartt every time we got near him, this would've been a great performance.

Except, well, mobile QBs are our kryptonite!

I saw no murdering and no donuts. Grrrr....

HOKIES

FAM! fuck the haters, ya gotta take your FAMS when you can

don't wanna be a debbie downer, but I feel like there will be more vent threads than FAM threads this season. Really hope I'm wrong

FAM. Cause fuck ODU! That's why!

This was an uneasy game, but got the bounces and breaks we've missed since November of last year.

Now crush Furman, take a deep breath, and get ready for Duke.

Hey, I'll give a fam for it, but man there are some questions that need addressed.

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

FAMMMMMMMM?

FAM because could you imagine the shit show if ODU pulled it off and stormed the field. Would have been a death blow.

Gotta figure out the running game really quick.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

There have to be two legit running threats in the backfield for a finesse blocking scheme to work; and we are at least one short

Lots of bright spots and opportunities. ODU monkey slaughtered. Let's hope the guys keep improving!

"How you doin', Randy?"

To quote Jimmy Sharpe..."a ween, is a ween, is a ween"

and I think I finally understand Frank's infatuation with the middle drill

We won. We are 1-1. The recovery from last season's toxicity will not be done in an offseason. It will take all of this season and part of the offseason to do so. This team is better than last year. Is this not a fact? Will they continue to improve? I think we will see a slight "see-saw" effect, but progressing up and to the right as we see small "ups and downs". I believe any significant on field improvements will be largely seen next season. Any this season would be a blessing and we would all gladly take it. Now, if a recovery isn't truly happening, we will know before season's end. And, if so, a come to Jesus moment will soon follow Coach Fu and staff.

FAM.

Fam is Fam, no matter what.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Is hoker injured? After his last play he went off slow and was sitting with a trainer

My fault fam

Thought that was Hooker, unless I missed something.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Yea wrong name

He was massaging his left bicep coming off the field. I think it was grabbed/pulled during the tackle.
I would guess that it is nothing too serious.

I saw a coach pointing toward his shoulder while talking to someone off camera.

FAM back in blacksburg for a game, got free parking in Lot18, got to tailgate and free concession food O and HOKIE FOOTBALL WIN!!

FAM! I'll take it. I'll take every single one of them.

Fam.
Go Hokies.

Fam!

Imma spin my normal positives now.

Rashard Ashby and Regie Floyd are my homies. They are the heart and soul of LPD this season!

Let's Go

HOKIES

We didn't lose!
FAM!
We got a much needed tune up game!
FAM!
Our passing game wasn't complete ass!
FAM!
the refs forgot how to call pass interference and killed a couple drives!
FA...nevermind
We won despite some errors (not gonna blame a concussed Willis for a fumble especially when targeting can be called retroactively and wasn't)!
FAM!

In the stands we looked at the play and the long delay. We figured they were going to give the ball to ODU and also eject the player.

There were a lot of missed calls when we had the ball. There were at least two text book examples of PI that the ref's swallowed their flags on.

Fam. We must improve but were good enough today.

NBA!! FAM!!!

If anyone was wondering I was that guy screaming "SAY YOU CAUGHT IT" at Danny Coale after the first quarter fam.

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

We made mistakes, but we kept fighting. That's progress. Fam, we're better than we were, not as good as we want to be. But we'll get there.

And it's going to be Justin Fuente who gets us there, fam.

GIFTORY suggestions are open Fam.

I think the obvious Heze catch and Terrius return should be included.

Read through the play by play and count the underclassmen contributing on this team. If we can figure out a way to keep recruiting on track, the future could be very bright.

The concern of things staying the same is only exceeded by the fear of change

This is a great idea and could be applicable as it's own article this week! Add long term outlooks for each player (lol after 2 games but still) or whether they should only play 4 games this year and redshirt.

When did the cheerleaders start doing the colored smoke when the team runs on? I liked that.

It was new for this year. They can send it bak to Miami. It stunk (smelled bad in the stands).

Also new was the score board modifications that made it hard to track game stats and moving the alumni chant to after the 1 st quarter instead of 3.

I thought the smoke was dope. Sure it smelled a bit but that, plus playing Enter Sandman through the second chorus, added a ton of excitement to the entrance that I feel like we lacked a couple years ago.

The only in-game experience that I thought needed to change was the whole "GET LOUD" thing when we started a critical drive. You're supposed to do the exact OPPOSITE. It used to be that you could practically hear the offense playcalling from the other side of the field.

Leg for everyone who posted in the FAM spirit, and I managed not to down-vote everyone who got this thread confused with all the non-NBA threads! We are on a roll now!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

The fact that there were more comments in the meh post than the fam post saddens me.

Keep the optimism (or even a level head) and legs for yall FAM
