What's everyone got for the "Terrible #goACCN Broadcast" pool?

I've got my $5* on "broadcasters get hotmic'd while on a bathroom break"

I'll go with one of the announcers consistently using a wrong or mispronounced term...like "Corpse of Cadets" or "Virginia" (without Tech) or "Fu-en-tez".

I wont lie....if we hosted a Halloween game going forward:

"Corpse of Cadets" - an army of zombified military men and women in the South End Zone coming on the field to do Michael Jackson's Thriller at half time... that's worth the price of admission.

Give me "the game is off and so we get a three hour block of commercials instead but also it's the same twelve minutes of commercials that just repeats fifteen times"

If there's no game, wouldn't it just be three hours of the host of the Huddle trying to generate some conversation topics, Richt staring blankly into the camera, and Mac Lain and EJ trying to fill the void with whatever playing story they could tell?

That happens anyway, just depends whether the camera is on or not

I'm high rolling it with "2+ occurrences of nose whistling while breathing" and "1+ cellphone rings during broadcast"

Post election. No more SC senate ads. Bring on the spurtle and tac shaver.

It's ACCN...they will be airing them until mid-December. Gotta fill the slots, and you know they don't have replacements...

Let me introduce you to the TacMug. This mug is designed for people who want to feel like they were in the military! It's waterproof, watch as we pour this water into the mug with out leaks! Amazing. It comes in 1 color, military! Let's hear it from the online reviews:

"Just buy a yeti"

Now you can drink while you're underwater. There's just nothing like it on the market today.

Proud author of one plaid comment.

How are you going to identify the enemy in a tactical situation with a regular mug? Look at this totally not exaggerated scenario where you get sudden clarity the moment you sip out of the TacMug. Its military grade, so you know its good.

Really hope Liberty gets that #25 spot next week. Really want them to come in undefeated and ranked so we can pants them in front of the whole country

A win over a ranked team would be awesome.....

not sure if this should be sarcastic or not.....

Glad it is not primetime given how bad we are this year and how well they are playing. Hopefully we pull the upset...

I am legit scared for this game. If BC or NC State Virginia Tech shows up, cake walk. If Wake Forest VT shows up we're screwed and Fuente shouldn't be allowed back in the locker room if we lose.

If we lose this game, it'll be interesting to see how quickly excuses are made on here

if we lose this game, living in Lynchburg will be unbearable.

It'll be unbearable to be a VT fan anywhere. We cannot lose to Liberty, period. If we do, we'll have to immediately make wholesale coaching changes to retain any kind of credibility in the recruiting circuits going forward.

State of the program: Having legit discussions on 'what if we lose to Liberty' and realizing losing to Liberty is actually a possible scenario.

How far we've come

Let us not overlook how far Liberty has come. Hate 'em with a passion, but we have to watch out for them.

I will not return to the site for awhile if we lose this game.

If we lose to liberty, maybe fuente will just head straight to baylor and bypass heading back to blacksburg

But...it's a home game.

Well, Lane stadium is very conveniently located near the Blacksburg airport. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

...I could say that, but I normally start posting again around Thursday after a loss. Lol

Haven't you heard? We don't have the resources. Only Clemson/Bama could be expected to pull off a win against the Flames. The talent is so spread out everywhere else, and everyone has caught up to us. Also Liberty has some of the best coaches and players just execute their scheme perfectly. But we cant do the same because we don't have the competition on our roster to force our players to focus and execute each week. Oh but don't worry this season is fake and doesn't really count anyway. /s

I would expect pitchforks, not excuses. But the mere fact that we're talking about this as a legitimate concern, in itself, has me concerned. We shouldn't be concerned about winning - we should be concerned about how much we'll win by and not getting anyone injured. Not going to make this political, but a loss to this team would do more than put Fuente on the hot 4-alarm fire seat and will have many putting sights on calling for Babcock's resignation.

We are not going to lose to Liberty. Wake is a good deal better than them. Let's relax and not get mad at Fu for something that hasn't and won't happen.

After Old Dominion, I don't discount our ability to lose to anyone at any time.

Yep, and there's lots of teams that see beating VT as a program-defining win for their team. And one that's quite within reach, these days.

Exactly. These games are these teams Super Bowls. They always punch above their weight and we always play down to their talent to some sort of average. Not to mention they have a legit P5 coach. I don't like this game at all.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

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

Is Hugh Freeze a legit P5 Coach? He won with players he got caught paying. I think to be legit, you have to not get caught doing that.

That criteria would disqualify a lot of P5 coaches.

Would it? The getting caught part I mean. I don't recall Dabo or Saban or Meyer really getting caught, though I guess Orgeron/LSU find themselves in some hot water currently.

What difference does it make if they were caught or not? He still won with them. No need to split hairs over this. If you want to discredit his record that's fine, but it just makes us look dumber if we lose.

I was mostly being tongue in cheek about good coaches cheating without getting caught.

I really wish we weren't playing them. I really hope Fu and Co don't make me wish we didn't play them

but if we lose, imagine the dumpster fire this thread will be...

1. This team has the guts, skills, and will to lose to anyone. I think decades of hokie football has shown that
2. We shouldn't play Liberty at all. Their football team doesn't deserve our acknowledgement that they exist

Liberty Biberty Just saw the other one. I'll drink

Liberty Biberty. I was just looking for an excuse.

No, it's ok. I'm glad other people do it. I can't hear the word liberty without thinking that phrase.

Liberty gets the #25 ranking going into our game with them on Saturday, and Miami is #11. Big opportunity for us to get two wins against T25 teams and pick up some momentum.

Does anyone know Jaden Payoute's status? I believe this is week 8 of his 4-8 week recovery. Would be cool if he could get back on the field for Miami or at the very least Pitt.
