#2 Virginia Tech vs Clemson Game Thread

The top seeded Hokies open ACC Tournament play tonight at 7pm on the Regional Sports Networks.

The 40-11 VT Hokies take on the 35-22 Clemson Tigers in Blacksburg.

Clemson comes in on their last gasp, while the Hokies enter as ACC favorites and in the national championship conversation.

Hokies have the advantage in ERA, batting average, OBP, and Slugging %, and despite playing 6 fewer games, the Hokies have 68 more total bases.

Despite being in the same conference, this is the first scheduled meeting between the two teams.

I know it technically doesn't matter if we win (top seed in each group only has to go 1-1 to advance, the other two teams have to go 2-0), but I want to see us run-rule these guys 12-0 and close up shop before the top of the 8th.

As someone subject to blackout, I hate RSNs with the fiery passion of a thousand burning suns.

fiery passion of a thousand burning suns.

I think they make antibiotics for that.

Just here to say that the format of the ACC baseball tournament is ridiculously bad.

With that said...Lets Go

Hokies

Aren't the games being played in Charlotte?

My bad. I got ACC Tournament mixed up with the Super Regionals in softball.

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

What's the best way to watch this? If I use a VPN will this be somewhere on watchespn?

I just wish the ACC had their own network that they could show every tournament game...

We put the K in Kwality

What, and deprive everyone of a month-old replay of the NC State spring game!?

Some weather headed this way in CLT. What happens if we get stormed/rained out tonight?

We have tickets for tomorrow night, so trying to figure out how all this works with the scheulding so tight.

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?

Looking pretty dark in Concord....

Up in Davidson. Tornado warnings out to the west but looks like CLT is in the clear for a bit longer.

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

Yet another to run Homer by Clemson

10-6

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I guess when you are guaranteed to be on the bus home win or lose, you can go ahead and burn your entire pitching staff...

Bases loaded walk.

We're gonna break the hammer again. 13-6 Hokies.

14-6 at the seventh inning stretch

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

I'm guessing weather delay as nothing I'm using has updated in a while

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

yeah, weather delay.

No. wonder this is taking so long. And most networks feature their best team. #GOACC. Imagine how things would be worse if we were not the #3 team in the country and an great come from nowhere story.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Excuse you. Number 2 team in the country!!! The rest is valid.
/s

You could almost start to feel bad for Clemson.
I don't, but you could I suppose.

Carson fucking Jones has 7 home runs in 5 games🤯

Here they come
Here comes the bastards
I heard it from a confidant
Who heard it from a confidant
They're definitely on their way

I read this as Cardale Jones and was momentarily very confused.

18-6 Final

Hokies Win

Never Forget #1 Overall Seed UVA 54, #64 UMBC 74

Turned those Tigers into Rags.

Onto tomorrow!

Fam!

.... this is the most perfectly written thing I've ever seen on this site

ND is beating UVA 3-0 top of the 9th.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Final ND won 3-0.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Anybody know what time we can get in the gates with our tickets tonight? It says 7pm so I guess it's not for the earlier games too but I was thinking about just going down early.

Based on the softball rain delay, I would say stop at a bar and stay until about 7:30 and make the walk over then.

I am not sure what to do with my hands now

It's been perfect weather in Charlotte all day. Great night for a baseball game.

VT BSEE '98, VT MSME '01

I'm thinking there's a "rain delay."

I'm drinking one now.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

Yikes UNC up 3 top 1st with 1 out

Going to bottom 1st down 4... UNC sent 9 to bat

Bring the lumber this game, boys!

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Hackenburg pulled after 1 inning for Firoved

Looks like they used all the mojo last night

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

Is this it? If we lose are we done?

Is coronavirus over yet?

We are out of the ACC tournament. NCAA still ahead.

I do not understand bag sport tourneys at all I thought they were still going on what a sad way to end the ACC tourney as a 1 seed.

Ironically, if Clemson had beaten UNC, we would still have advanced even getting embarrassed like we did last night.
The (stupid) format is: whatever team goes 2-0 or the highest seed advances

It looks like UNC vs. NC State in the championship.

Go Hokies!
