Glad to see the team hasn't quit on the year, FAM!

This team no matter how bad it's been hasn't quit on each other and it's great to watch it come together tonight.

Glad to see them go out at their last home game with a win. Feels good to have a FAM thread.

Good to have the seniors and staff go out with a bang. It was apparent that the pressure is off everyone's shoulders so they just went out and had fun. Interesting that what will likely be Fu's last game in Lane was retribution for the 2019 Duke beat down, which was the beginning of the end of the Fu era in many ways. Glad for a great senior day.

All those pushups and beers hurt, will sleep good tonight

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:
β€œI served in the United States Navy"

I thought only VMI did that

CAZZATA, MENDENHALL!

Attended a VMI game earlier this year. Their cannon sounds like a pop gun compared to Skipper.

Theirs (Little John II) is technically a 3/5 model of a 1750 British howitzer mortar.

Skipper, however, is based on a Civil War-era design and is full-size.

Also, VMI was gifted their original cannon by the Virginia government. The Cadets of the VTCC conceived, funded, and delivered Skipper all on their own. The Commandant of the Corps had no idea that it was happening.

Thus those eternal words: "VMI sucks".

Coming from a VMI lineage and going to Tech, I've heard great stories from both sides of the old rivalry. I also am happy they have a solid football coach right now

FAM that felt good even if the refs did their best to make it hard to watch. Offense found some fun plays and thought the defense played angry

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

Meh!

But in all seriousness, beat UVA, go bowling, and VPI owes me $40 😎

Nah, beat Miami and UVa

Oh gosh, no. I mean I am so torn. If we somehow manage to win the next 2 and the bowl game as well, we could be stuck with Corn-Fu another year.

No chance. It is done.

A member of the BOV posted on 247 (non-paywall) essentially saying it is done. Just a matter of when and who.

Yeah man even if we finish 8-5 it's just done

It's Mehul. He posts fairly frequently over there actually.

I've been told that the team was told Thurs or Fri that Fu was gone at the end of the year. But I would have expected it to leak out by now. Regardless of how we feel on this board and as fans, a lot of the team actually likes Fu and have felt like they let him down the last few weeks and cost him his job. Things are never as bad as they seem, and never as good as they seem.

As bad as I want a coaching change...I realized today I can't root for the Hokies to lose. Let's win out and let the chips fall where they may.

I feel like if the players were told, it would leak out. At least over the next couple of days. There's just too many people involved for it to not get posted somewhere on social media either via them or those with parents/guardians that are very active on social media about their kid's football activities.

If the players were told, you know Tre's mom would have tweeted it!

We put the K in Kwality

VTJ12: I hope so much that you are right. Please, I am not trying to be a ____. I just fear that if we win out and go 8-5 we will be stuck with this clown show of a coach ... and offensive coordinator ... and WR coach ... and S&C coach and ...

I so hope the whole group is gone no matter what we do the rest of the year.

Fuente going 8-5 is like worrying about a meteor hitting your car. It could technically happen but I wouldn't worry about it.

I thought it felt like the coaches walked with the seniors tonight. They coached it up to win their last home game. Unfortunately they could not coach aggressive until they had nothing to lose. I think we have a chance to look good from here on out, ironically because I believe it is too late to matter

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

I'm terrified of a late-night announcement of an extension for Fuente.

We'll see

care to collect? DM me on twitter (handle's on my profile) and we'll go from there

Why did it take this long to play hokie football.

The tackling.

The pursuit.

The misdirection.

The mistakes

The running game.

Why fuente ... Why!

Gobble Gobble!

Because we don't get to play Duke every week?

Bob: What would ya say ya do here?

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

If there was any doubt they are the worst team in the ACC this year, there is none now.

We won a fucking game. FAAAAMMM!!!!

"... I think he played his nuts off. And you can quote me on that shit."

Fam Hale shoulda been tweeting that shit about 500 yards all along

"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

Don't know if it was said anywhere else, in the pregame lineup intros, they did not announce Fuente. Probably the first time that has ever happened. Assuming it was to prevent the boos. At the end of the day, we won a game FAM.

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

Sloppy FAM ... lots of great moments got giftory

FAM. Great last game for the seniors at Lane.

Very happy for the team! That was cathartic. For the players. For the coaches. For the fans. Let's see if the team can carry that momentum forward against a vulnerable Miami team

Onward and upward

What I've seen from Tyler Van Dyke makes me nervous we can keep up with Miami, but it's definitely not out of the question to win. With UVA I have the hope that their run D being atrocious could be enough for us to score a good bit on them. If there's one thing we can do on offense this year, it's running the ball between a hopefully healthy BB and Blackshear, Malachi, and now King it seems has re-entered the fold.

I'm worried we will keep seeing BB run and eventually need to rely on the backups he did better tonight getting out of bounds but I'm still nervous every time he takes off

Fam...I'm glad for the team that they got a win, especially for the Seniors. Go Hokies.

Go Hokies!

Well done Seniors! First complete game since UNC. Go Hokies!

FAM!!!! Thanksgating in Lot 18 with great food and amazing framily and a big Hokie win. It was a good day.

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

Fam, let's all enjoy these wins.

So happy for the seniors, everybody played with an extra step in their game.

Romo balled out again. Shibest has done a great job with our special teams, after a rough start.

Duke secondary is bad. Wow 😳

FAM! The rest of the weekend is always better after a Hokies win (or two or three as the case may be!)

Hell yeah! Time to pull up the replay and watch the game! Big thanks to my FAM for letting me know it's safe to watch!

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Send the seniors out right FAM! Another bright spot for the team and the fans. LETS GO!

HOKIES!!

What a great game from start to finish FAM! Go Hokies!

It doesn't LOOK like we won but scoreboard don't lie. Big senior day win. But damn 12 penalties for 106 gotta clean that up.

Keep in mind they got 4 first downs on (bs) penalties in the 3rd/4th so that number gets thrown off quite a bit.

Feel like the refs should have a color on that chart...like brown...showing they got the majority of the minutes.

We put the K in Kwality

...like brown...

On the other hand this is how to get stuff done:

that 10 minute td drive in the 4th reminded me of Illinois doing that to an ohio state university maybe 10+ years ago

Danny is always open

Their first TD drive was 20 yards them, and the rest of the field by penalties. They "drove" 80 yards without a single first down except by penalty.

FAM for all the players but especially the seniors.

We finally got some innovative play calling in the 10th game of the season.

See, everyone was correct when they said we'd open the playbook up when we played ..... looks at past comments .... Duke?/s

Me to Fuente:

1-0 every week
