LETS GO!!!

HOKIES!

AW HELL YEAH

Edit: We didn't draw either LOLUVA or Dook for home games on winter break. This is most excellent. Also, where is UNCheat? I'm assuming they scurred of us.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

First game.

Leg. Thanks for the correction. I was looking at our schedule on Hokiesports. Oddly enough it's not on the page yet.

Best draw we've received since entering the league. No major opponent over break. Pretty maintainable away schedule. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I think we are going 20-0 in conference. Actually 19-1, forgot it is forbidden to win @Louisvile.

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

So it is written...

"Don't go to, go through"

At least you're being realistic

That early season UNC game should have some juice - no clue if we will get ranked to start the season, but UNC is likely to start the season top 5 I imagine if not higher.

I don't think UNC thinks of us as a rival per se but I get a feeling that after how last year went they'll be ready to play us.

That stretch down the end - Miami, @Louisivlle, @Duke, Florida State......

Looking on the bright side, we should be ready to play tournament teams after that.

Sometimes we live no particular way but our own

Brad Brownell twice. That always fucking sucks. Maybe we get lucky.

I can't believe they buried the lede.

That is, your defending ACC champion Virginia Tech Hokies

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

GOOD POINT.

"Now Miami wants to talk about it." *Cue Enter Sandman*

No true road game until December 21? Nice.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

So fighting on that bubble again, eh? Better hope the ACC is stronger this year to boost that bubble resume then. Our OOC schedule is rather weak. Any slip ups early could make it really hard to boost your resume later if the conference sucks.

Or we could just win the conference tournament again.

Win one of UNC/Duke, split the UVA series and don't shit the bed against BC/Pitt/Clem and the in conference schedule should help. Also need to not lose stupid OOC games early on

If we win it all then there is no bubble to worry about, so might as well win it all. Again.

Hey it's up to us to prove why we deserve better! Journey starts 11/7 let's get it.

is it too soon for a butts for mutts gif?!

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

Never to early. He came back!

No, but some new ones would be welcome.

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

Maybe I'm misinformed or living off the fact that we won the ACC Tourney last year, but with our returning players, shouldn't we be more on the side of comfortably in vs being a bubble team?

Go Hokies!

Keve is a big loss, but Basille can ball. The guys are confident, count me very cautiously optimistic

We lost our best player... played very medicore in spots for stretches last year, needed a buzzer beater to beat another shit fucking shit Brownell team from a football school, and we play in a tough league- Louisville will be better, Miami will be better, ND will be better. I think we are a tourney team, but it won't be a lock until late Feb.

Louisville will be better,

Might wanna pump the brakes on that specific part. They lost an exhibition to D2 Lenoir-Rhyne and barely beat Chaminade.

They were a bubble team last year that likely was not making the tournament as at-large bid. It's not clear on the surface that the team talent improved either.

Roster Changes:

  • Lost Aluma; Gain Grant Basille from Wright State (a loss in talent, but how much is to be determined; he was a 2-time All-Horizon League Conference player)
  • Lost Storm Murphy; Gain more talent in Pedulla
  • Lost N'Guessan; Gain more talent in Maddox
  • With Maddux moving into a starter role, transfer Poteat likely becomes the 6th man (gain in experience)
  • With Pedulla starting and Murphy gone, VT needs Freshman Rice and Collins to be a solid contributors when Pedulla or Cattoor rest

What the media sees is the following: lose Aluma and replaced with a transfer from a lower-tier conference. And based on the fact they were a bubble team last year, they don't see VT as better than a bubble team this year. It's not a bad assessment, but it underscores the fact that VT didn't play at their true potential for most of the early part of the 21/22 season which put them squarely on the bubble.

I also don't think VT is getting credit for the their experience and development in their roster, especially Maddux. I think Maddux has potential to develop into the best play-maker on the team this year. Combine that with the experience of Mutts, Cattoor, and Basille, and Pedulla's ability to run the point, this team could be really good.

Leg for the Ted lasso reference

He said give to me Roscoe

I also think people are sleeping on CMY's boys this year. I scoffed when I saw we were picked to finish seventh

21st century QBs Undefeated vs UVA:
MV7, MV5, LT3, Braxton Burmeister, Ryan Willis, Josh Jackson, Jerod Evans, Michael Brewer, Tyrod Taylor, Sean Glennon, and Grant Noel. That's right, UVA. You couldn't beat Grant Noel.
