It had Wi-Fi, led lights, and they played a NIL commercial with a scannable QR code at half. Their band also seemed better than ours. But glad we beat for those fucks

Their band sounds a little better because they play the same show the whole season. MVs play a new show every game and generally only have a week of practice to put it on the field.

Maybe we should do that then.

Free Hugh

I can't believe I'm about to talk band on thekeyplay, but here we go.

I don't know how else to say it other than the MVs don't really want to emulate LUs band and LUs band doesn't really want to emulate the MVs.

I was in the Marching Virginians at Tech but I was also involved with the indoor drumline that LU sponsored during the winter months as a performer and then later as an instructor. (That group is limited to LU students only now, but it wasn't back then. Lots of kids from around the state and region were involved) There are kids in all the college bands around the state that know each other, and they talk to each other about their experiences. Every college band has its own culture and its own goals. You can really see it when you're around the other band at the bowl games. Heck, just compare the Highty Tighties to the MVs next time you're in lane.

These bands are all "doing marching band" but they're practically doing different activities.

You can't believe you're talking about the band? Have been to this site much? We will criticize the type of bacon player eat. We have in depth discussions about pastries. We analyzed how to eat cucumbers. The band is way more on topic than most of the comments on this site.

P.S. Turkey bacon is wrong

One word: mayonnaise

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

"Is mayonnaise an instrument?"

It's instrumental in making some sandwiches.

To me, that's one of the great things about college marching band. Each one is different. You can't compare hardly any of them apple to apples. Each one is unique and each one does certain things well, even if it is putting on a show with the most hungover members every Saturday.

Stanford's band excels at having fun. On the opposite end of the fun spectrum you have Tennessee's band, who sits practically silent in the stands until they are directed to play Rocky Top.

...Tennessee's band, who sits practically silent in the stands until they are directed to play Rocky Top.

Which they do entirely too often.

The only sound more offensive to the ear than Mississippi State's cowbell.

That was pretty much the joke. It's just about the only thing they play in the stands. Most other bands have at least a handful of either classic rock, classic pop, or current pop songs to entertain with. Tennessee's band doesn't dance or cheer. When anything happens that's cheer worthy, they stand and play Rocky Top. They have all their fun after the game.

FSU's war chant and Arkansas' Woo Pig would like a word. The 2016 Belk Bowl was unbearable in the first half

Someone make me a mash up of FSU Warchant and Arkansas Woo Pig with some Miss St cowbell ambient noise in the background. Play it loudly while we practice moving forward to get ready for away games.

At least the stadium elevators worked

Excellent defense seals this one. Go Hokies!

Pry is the bestest!!!!

Missed most of the first half - who's got a clip of that fake FG for me?

Twitter me

deleting to avoid multiple embeds

Wonder how long ESPN had the score wrong on the bottom line?

ESPN app had us making the 2 point conversion for at least 5 minutes! Worst app ever

What happened with the 2 pt conversion? No ESPN+ so I couldn't watch, the game highlights on YouTube showed it as good too?

Ruled as good initially. Went to commercial, and during commercial it was reviewed. Looked like ball was slipping from Kaleb's hands from his belly down to his leg, he got hit and the ball was fully dislodged when he hit the ground.

A freaking speed option fake FG with the holder, and kicker?!? You love to see it!

The holder was the punter too I'm pretty sure, so you had a Punter/Kicker speed option. Just glorious in a lost season when it goes for an 11 yard gain.

edit: drinking

They've been practicing it all year...Holt finally got Pry to use it!

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

That option was a fucking thing of beauty. Well timed pitch, great block on the edge, stick your foot in the ground and get north fucking south. Somewhere Tom Osborn is smiling.

Man, it wasn't pretty and there is a lot that needs to be fixed, but to see the team play with an edge and get the ground game going, and wow way for Marve to step up calling the D today. Unreal 4th quarter stands back to back on D. Hats off to him/them.

And it feels good to beat that ridiculous/fake program and coach down in Lynchburg. Clowns going to clown.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Just checked the score..,
Hell yes FAM!!!

uva - the taint of the ACC

I feel like we point out all the things that are wrong, but we saw some isolated improvement today:

1. Another game with very few penalties, a definite area of growth since it is now a trend.

2. Game management seemed to match what Pry has been preaching since he arrived to town.

3. Defense showed moments of what we've grown to love in Blacksburg - The defense won the game today!

4. The run game, for two out of the last three weeks, has shown some signs of life.

5. WE BEAT LIBERTY. LET THAT NEVER BE IN QUESTION EVER AGAIN.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I am not sure whether to give the credit to Holston or Pry but that was a heads up play to not score the touchdown on first down. We could have easily made a bonehead mistake there and given them the ball back.

It was Pry.

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

Didn't get to see the game because it was on espn+. Looks like the last Biberty drive resulted in a fumble in their own end. #LunchPailDefense whatup!

Moving on...

Fuente approved game plan

You mean don't score at the end?

D Line came up big on the last drive. Garbutt knocked one loose and Griffin fell on it.

D came up big...fixed (and not in a sexual way either...ok maybe a little)

That is true. They definitely had some help, I just know the boys up front made a couple big plays on that last drive.

We earned/caused the fumble - they couldn't handle garbutt or pollard....all up in their shit. It was glorious

...in Lynchburg

We put the K in Kwality

that's name begins with an "L", also, ironically, what they received!

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

I grew up and was raised in Lynchburg so I have a special disdain for Liberty...so this feels good. The D and Jalen Holston/Keshawn King won this game so I'll do the damn thing...FAMMMMMM

All propers to Holston. He had some nice runs after contact today.

I want to say that all the support VT gave UVA was amazing because this defense saw UVA blue jerseys and said fuck no!

Liberty might have been 8-2. They might have been ranked last week. They might have been playing at home.

But they're still just fucking Liberty.

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

I thought we might have been screwed when they put up the graphic that Liberty has never defeated a P5 team at home. So glad that we didn't becoming yet another "first".

this thread is filled with gold, but I think this one's my favorite

Defense gave up 10. Amazing that they can be effective in the 4th when not losing TOP by 10-15 minutes.

NOBODY send the Virginia Tech Hokies to an eight-game losing streak. NOBODY

FAM! Actually got to watch this game. Gotta say hats off to the team for not throwing the towel on the season and continuing to fight. A win feels good, we should do it more often.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

hats off to the team for not throwing the towel on the season and continuing to fight.

This more than anything gives me hope that Pry's the guy. He's kept the players bought in through a stinker of a season. Past VT teams have given up in less dire circumstances.

Very Beamer-like...even in 92 when we only won 2 games we were competitive in every game except Miami...we won 9 games the next season-just sayin!

Describing some of our games this season as "competitive" is very generous lol...we lost 4 of them by 2+ TDs.

I don't think he was saying we were competitive in every game this season. I think he was saying the players haven't checked out this year despite the record, and that we were competitive in every game in 92. At least that's how I read it, because yeah, we haven't been competitive in some of them this year. Granted, also depends on your definition. A couple where the rails fell off this year, we were competitive until the 4th quarter (if memory serves).

Running out of steam because we don't have serviceable backups and being competitive until then is different than being outclassed for an entire game.

I guess you could say we won the liberty bowl!

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

We'll likely end the season on a winning streak FAM!

1-0 this week.

That's progress FAM. Now let's go win a tournament tomorrow.

He came up huge today. 3 tds, key 4th down conversion, a big play or two. He definitely gets some heat, but today he played his heart out.

I'm going to (re)watch God Forbid tonight to celebrate.

It's a really a great documentary. But I do like see those pious a-holes get it.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Plural of what? Mathematic? I don't think it's because it's plural, I think it's because the word is mathematics so they put the "s" on the end. Maybe I'm wrong, but I have never once heard anyone say "mathematic."

I think mathematics is the noun form and mathematic or mathematical are the adjectival forms.

Chris Marve can stick around...just saying

With marve calling the d, pry should have more time to write notes.

And this was arguably our best clock/game management of the season too. Maybe because Pry had time to focus instead of worrying about defensive play calls.

Some would say that Coach Marve really put the nail in the foot on that last drive.

Others would say Marve calling the game defensively had a shocking performance:

Finally, I think it's clear that Marve shattered expectations in his first game:

VT Marketing Class of 2009
Current Roanoke-Hokie
Go Hokies!

Not so long ago we would've been embarrassed to beat Liberty by one-my how times change

It's what you do when you're knocked down that shows who you are.

Not that long ago we thought our head coach touting our streak of consecutive 10-win seasons was loser talk because winning 10 games a year wasn't that big a deal..

Lol I also remember being a student at VT at the time some people being sick of going to the Orange Bowl so much. What a lovely problem to have!

Fans don't always have the most objective view of things, go figure.

I would argue that if the coaches and admin shared the fans' desire for continued improvement back then, had a lack of complacency, etc., we wouldn't be in the situation we're in today.

Who could forget Frank calling a loss to ECU a scrimmage/pre-season game? I can tell you with first hand knowledge that folks in the athletic department were happy with the "consistency" of 10 wins and refused to force change (job security, right?).

As they say, fan is short for fanatic. They're not always rational, but they're not always wrong either.

Why would we pay them so much perfectly good money????

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

It's ticket share, their stadium is about half the size of ours, so our ticket share in Lynchburg is half of what they get in Bburg

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

I'm not sure that's accurate. It's the payout for a team to come to your stadium. Right Now Tech is getting close to playing 1 million for mid tier P5 team to come to Lane if there is no one-one game. One reason Whit was ok having Liberty was they only asked 500,000 for each trip to Lane and paid Tech for when we went there. It was part of the interview AB did with Whit.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

To be clear, this was my interpretation of Bitters article. It may not explicitly be a ticket share/revenue share, but reading between the lines is that it basically works like that. Instead of paying $1 million-plus for a mid G5 team, you share revenue with local G5 teams in a 2 for 1.

For those who didn't read, he did the overall math with expenses and such, but basically 3 games in a 2 for 1 like Liberty or ODU costs us 250k, where 3 home games against G5 teams would cost us $3 million.

Watching Trevon do some of that funky chicken waddle and then end it with a butt smack to a head bow studder step always makes me laugh.

She doesn't need to see. She has a fifth sense, like ESPN or something.

This was the first set of highlights I've watched where I could tell Joe Rudolph was coaching the offensive line. Absolutely loved the drive on the double teams on some of the inside zone runs.

Play of the game was probably Tucker Holloway's fumble recovery. Not saying it was a skillful thing. We just needed it to happen.

Nah, I'm going to go with the option pitch on a fake field goal

Or maybe the strip fumble and recovery at the end.

All these plays were important, and we finally saw (reasonably) complimentary football in all three phases and won!

I'm kind of torn on this to be honest. I'm genuinely happy to get this win, and the players and coaches definitely deserve to celebrate.

But the long-time Hokies fan in me who was once accustomed to going multiple full seasons at a time without losing 8 games sees this and wants to paraphrase Brad Pitt in Moneyball: "Is this what 3-8 sounds like?"

Edit: The comments below are right. This was a good win, and they snapped a losing streak. They worked their asses off in this game, and they should be celebrating.

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

As someone who also has that long-time Hokie fan in them, I say let em do it. It's been a fun-starved year.

Exactly. You want a culture that hates losing? This is the start

I know Uconn took some fun out of this win, but this was a legitimately good win. They loat to Wake by 1, Uconn by 3. They beat Arkansas two weeks ago who beat a top 15 team yesterday. They beat BYU too.

While we are not where we want to be, we beat a good team.

So how should they react to finally winning a game, in the opinion of those who seem to think our players being happy is somehow bush league?

Should they be sad? Should they issue an apology to all the fans who worked so hard and deserved more wins? Should they say, we'll it's just Liberty so it's not a big deal that we won, and guess we still suck. Sorry we aren't better for you loyal fans who deserve so much better.

This isn't just directed at you, BTW. There seem to be a few folks on here who think the players and coaches shouldn't be celebrating this win. My opinion is that people who feel that way should stop being selfish and try to imagine how they'd feel if they were actually on the team. You'd be happy, relieved, and excited. Stop focusing on the negative, especially in the face of something that is objectively positive. It doesn't make you a realist to mope around like a whiny preschooler, it makes you a selfish child.

If Pry reacted this way to yesterdays win everyone would complain that he wasn't showing enough emotion.

2 Thoughts:

  • Kobe in NBA finals isn't comparable to a 3-8 college football team that won their first game in over a month and very possibly their last game of season.
  • How does Kobe not have a suit that fits him?

I know, you're right. I'm sure every player on that team hates losing, and I can only imagine how hard a 7-game losing streak must be.

I didn't watch the game in real time, but I did watch the whole replay last night. It was a hard-fought game, and it definitely could have gone the other way. It's hard to swallow the fact that we're on tough times right now. On the other hand, this was a good win and it could be a springboard towards working our way back up.

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

A winning streak has to start somewhere, right?

It Start Snow? /s

GOT THE W BOYS!

I really need to watch Shoresey, don't I

This is my school
This is home

Yeah. You do. Even if you haven't watched Letterkenny, Shoresy holds up. Of course it helps to know the kind of character Shoresy was on Letterkenny, especially because he evolves soooo much.

Fuck you Jonesy! Your mama is . . .

Tell your mom to top up the cell phone she bought me so I can FaceTime her late night.

That's probably the most tame one.

My favorite is the ". . . roll up the rim to win."

Tell your mom to trim her toenails, she carves up my thighs when she gets to buckin'

Yes. Yes you do.

I wish that sort of thing would happen. I think it did in Buzz's locker room after the loss to WVA where the media guys had to wait like 2 hours. I think they had that epiphany where they decided they hated losing more than they enjoyed winning.

I'm back to celebrate again because I'm still feeling good. Forgot how good it feels to win.

Especially over liberty. Ain't God good?

ECUADOR BEAT QATAR IN THE WORLD CUP OPENER FAM!!!

sorry, very excited about this because f*** Qatar's government. Didn't think we needed a new FAM thread, though

Onward and upward

FAM! Got the Dub.

I didn't really want to start a new thread, but has there been any word from either camp on the status of game #12? At this point, I am assuming we are most likely not playing next weekend... Either the game is off or moved to December 3rd.

If UVA decides not to play, would Whit consider a replacement game on 12/3? The most likely option there would be JMU since they only played 11 games and are bowl ineligible... But, I don't exactly love that idea.

Since bowl eligibility is off the table, the only reason to schedule any game in place of UVA would be to minimize lost revenue, especially since this was a season where we only had 6 home games scheduled.

Seeing as how the 2018 Marshall game was made general admission, and we only had about 50% attendance, it's probably not cost effective to just put on a random game. At least if we play UVA a week late, people will actually come to that one.

I expect to hear word about the game either way by Tuesday. After all, there are a lot of people with travel plans that will be affected, and they're probably already back home for break by now. (Thinking about people like the bands, who will be coming back early for the game, so they would want to know early in the week if they need to be returning to Blacksburg on Friday or Sunday.)

Marshall didn't replace a game, it was added on to the end of the season, do there is a chance we'd get more fans as many people are still planning to go to VT this weekend.

It replaced ECU.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

It replaced the ECU game. I get it wasn't the same weekend as the originally scheduled game but it was a replacement.

It wasn't a replacement for the fans though, it was an additional game on a different weekend where no one planned to go to Blacksburg. Now it was mentioned below that JMU would not be this weekend so the yes it would be the same as Marshall, but had it been a true replacement (same day/time) then fans are planning to be there right now so why not go just because one team change was my point, which is now moot.

But we wouldn't be getting a replacement game this weekend, it would be the weekend after. All of the other teams are booked this weekend.

This is the answer, it does not replace the UVA game it would be an additional game, thank you.

I wonder what the folks at VMI have going on? πŸ‘€

Tweet by Mike Barber is saying that VT vs uva on 12/3 is a real possibility.

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

Thanks, i was on mobile.

Tech got an important win. For a lot of people this was an upset, but Tech fans know that beating Liberty is never an upset. It is expected just like beating UVA.

Go Hokies!

I didn't expect us to win it.

For those who say Pry doesn't show emotion on the sideline,...he certainly does in the locker room before and after the game as seen here and in the "turn up the music" post game clip.

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

The added sound effects on the hits make me laugh. I can't stop watching now.

Living in Lynchburg, I gotta say, it's been nice talking to all the Liberty fans I work with this week.

It was a closer game than Hokies fans want and expect of our program. It was a better game than they could really expect against us. So in total it was a good game.
