We made it to another game day ladies & gents

You know what? That's something.

I LOVE game day!

Anyone with Cox get streaming ACCN through the ESPN App working yet?

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

NO, and if you try to stream contour (Cox Anywhere) anywhere but on your home wifi, it won't work. Cox disappoints to the nth degree AGAIN.

After seeing the rushing attack Kansas put on BC, I am now convinced that VT has a couple fundamental problems with scheme and execution more than lack of talent. I hope to see some improvement today. Basically a week's worth of coaching improvement and a win (is a win) day would be good for me.

I want to see King pop off. I really want nothing more. Well, win too.

Think we cover -23.5?

No

Is it basketball season yet?

Andy Bitter reporting it's another week with no Hazelton.

Laz just said he didn't travel with the team. Um...home game?

We put the K in Kwality

maybe didn't stay at the team hotel?

...or they took his car away.

Touchback pls

I hate that we have no awareness on KO returns. That was -15 yard net return (field at 1 and tackle at 10 vs fair catch and get ball at 25).

We put the K in Kwality

Kaleb MF Smith

We put the K in Kwality

Struggling at the start against... *squints* FURMAN? Jesus Christ guys we suck. I know it's only one series but TWO false starts at home against an FCS team? Come on guys

6 plays, 2 false start penalties and a sack.

We put the K in Kwality

Maybe we should let them know the snap count in the huddle or something /s

We put the K in Kwality

Hooray, 3 and out!

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

but it wasn't?

Gobble Till You Wobble

We held them to 3 and out.

We put the K in Kwality

haha solid save for him by our defense

Gobble Till You Wobble

Its early, but its ugly on the OL again.

Is it basketball season yet?

Their QB needs to visit West End before they leave town.

"How the ass pocket will be used, I do not know. Alls I know is, the ass pocket will be used."
- The BoD

The old, "it's 3rd and 14, we'll throw a 7 yard passing route" play to ensure we don't make a 1st down. Made famous by the Washington Redskins.

Good start on defense

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Offense looking a bit sleepy, . Let's see how the D looks..

Coverage sack! Never thought I'd get to say that

We need to be a pass first team. Establish the pass game and pop some runs.

Good start for the D!

What's the rationale behind not trying to block a punt when the punter is in the back of the endzone and only about 12 yards from the line of scrimmage and we are playing an FCS team?

If you can't handle my shit posts, you don't deserve my memes

Because if we get a 15 yard penalty the fan base will implode. /s

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

Maybe there's a lack of trust that we won't rough the punter.

I know that's what I think about these days.

For some reason, the odds seem higher for a roughing call than a blocked punt these days.

We got it on the Furman 44. No penalty.

I'd say it worked out fine.

Saving the formation for the last game in case we need it.

We put the K in Kwality

Holy shit...do I see a push up front on D?? Positive things!

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Old school VT football start: the D is swarming while the O doesn't seem to know what shape a football is.

Looks like Caleb fumbled. Last we'll see him today.

Lol thought the same thing

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Nice run by King

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

King pops off that brilliant run and they put a different back in. This is the truly the most baffling thing about our team right now...I just don't get it. Can we not give the guy a full drive?

As King got the first down, I guess he was in.

Agreed. Super frustrating

Every play action play looks like there's a massive hole for a run. Why is that?

Started a drive on the Furman 44 & we have to kick a field goal. Just shoot me now please

OL is struggling with an undersized FCS line

Struggling to run the ball against a 5'9" 255 lb nose tackle.

Why can't we run a screen? It's like we've never practiced it.

We put the K in Kwality

at this point i would be happy with jet sweeps all day as long as it results in positive yardage.

Ok the rollout play isn't there, perhaps try something else?

Like blocking!

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

Might as well try it 5 more times just to make sure. Corny is infuriating

With the size advantage of our offensive line why do we need to roll out and why does Willis not have more protection? #74 is trying to stay untouched, and his uniform clean!

This is a great looking preseason...I mean scrimmage...oh never mind.

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

It seems our offensive line is taking this as a scrimmage or a walkthrough.

I mean 3rd and 6 and you call a boundary screen? What in the actual fuck, Corn

"You know when the Hokies say 'We are Virginia Tech' they're going to mean it."- Lee Corso

"thank you thank you"

You're welcome, whoever you are out there.

This is the season so far in a nutshell: "Yay we got 3 points and lead the game" versus "SO many mistakes and missed opportunities, this is BS"

Both viewpoints seem to have equal merit, until you realize that this is freakin' FURMAN.

Any idea what channel the ACC network is for Cox in 757? At the Mellow Mushroom in Williamsburg and we can't find the game on the tv

Try 171

Thanks fam! That worked

Wish I could help - I'm in Williamsburg but watching via Hulu Live and Cox for internet only

the 2nd sack by the Defense. Bud has them ready

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Attendance looks iffy at best on tv 😬

VB born, class of '14

At least Conner came to play. Laying licks

That is how defense is supposed to look at VT!

D looks good. Flying around and building some confidence.

This first quarter is a prime example of why Bud gets a pass.

Long live the King!

Gobble Till You Wobble

You were right man!

Gobble Till You Wobble

Fumble...ugh

Is Fu gonna bench Tre now?

1-0 every week

I came here for the bad words.

You're going to be happy.

We put the K in Kwality

Offense is stupid. I hate offense.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Our offensive line can't open holes in the middle so we're having to throw these crazy outside passes.

It's OK, folks. Turnovers are just random luck and not predictable.

I predict at this rate we will have 50 turnovers this season.....

Soooo does Turner get benched now?

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Is he a running back?

7-3 time to for Fuente to bench himself for fumbling this game.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Momentum changer with the fumble.

FIRST DOWN, HOKIES!

Depends on how many points result.

Our DL pressure is looking good.

We put the K in Kwality

It's Furmun!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

And the Defense has its THIRD sack.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

we're lucky the furman QB sucks

Are our DBs that poor we need zone coverage?

We are soooo bad LOL

We don't have enough money to compete with Furman

We are winning the penalty battle!

Thinking out loud...what ACC games do we win this year?

Maybe GT? Don't see any others right now

It makes me sad that I can't confidently answer this question

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

WTF?

Fell for the cheapest trick in the book.

We are a bad team

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

Our offense is an embarrassment so far. 3 pts against an FCS team after 1 quarter of play?

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

A bad FCS defense.

We put the K in Kwality

So basically the weakness of our team is exploiting the strength of Furman while the weakness of Furman is exploiting the supposed strength of our team.

I wonder what Brian will write about this week?

Is it basketball season yet?

What strength?

Turnovers?

This is gonna be a looooooong season

No doubt

If a tree falls in Scott Stadium does it make a sound?

This reminds me of when we were only up 3-0 on Furman at the half in 2008

Gobble Till You Wobble

A good possibility we're going to fall behind against Furman to start the 2nd quarter. I can't believe how far this program has fallen.

I'm not sure this team makes a bowl this year.

Have you heard that Tech still a really young team? /s

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Wa still suck.

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Will never happen as long as Fu is head whistle...sadly

This needs to go plaid. Brad is not a P5 coordinator, he has no feel for the game.

1-0 every week

LOL getting dragged into the endzone by Furman.

We are losing to Furman.

We put the K in Kwality

FIRE EVERYONE. WE'RE LOSING TO FUCKING FURMAN

No we're not.

Please keep it together.

Edit: I got negative four votes for saying we're not going to lose this game?

I expect to get plussed back up when we win.

Oh the score isn't 7-3 Furman?

I meant we're not GOING to lose. My bad.

English. It will get after ya.

Can we just punt every time we get the ball? At least that way our defense can have some space to work with.

Because they need further to get pushed?

Come on. That shouldn't have happened.

Which part? Giving up a TD on a short field, or the fumble that set it all up?

The defensive line getting pushed back 5 yards.

Our d line just got pushed the f back 5 yards on that td...

And yet some of you people on this forum have the gall to blame the students for poor Lane atmospheres. Look at this on field product.

going back i have no idea why we decided to run three straight passing plays after we got some good yardage on the runs. wtf?

defense is playing well. As long as we can stop getting in 3 and longs, which apparently is our MO this year we should still be alright. Perhaps we should just run the ball more.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

i have no idea why we decided to run three straight passing plays after we got some good yardage on the runs. wtf?

Because we hired an OC who had zero experience functioning at a level anything even close to appropriate to be hired at VT.

We need a better OC.

It's like he's watching the game on tape delay or something.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm glad we've got the Furman game to tune up for Rhode Island. Said no one ever!

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

Defensive line gets pushed 5 yards.

"It's the offense's fault".

Something about a fumble on the 25-yard line.

If we lose this game & Fuente gets canned immediately. Is that better for the program in the long run than us squeaking out a win today & looking terrible the rest of the year?

I am dead inside.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Bruce is probably looking for a grocery bag to put on his head.

He's a better fan than that.

Im gonna fix some homemade mac and cheese

Tales told of battles won

Caligula would grin

Our O-line cant open a hole, but they are good at jumping off-side

hard to watch

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

That was a great hole for MCclease to run into the defender and fall down.

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

Just a reminder ladies and gentlemen, this Furman defense is REALLY bad, one of the worst we've played in quite some time.

Is it basketball season yet?

Not against us

Lmao.

Fire Cornelson at halftime.

Please play Hooker

Do we hold a record for offenses doing 3 and out?

Isn't that FSU's recruiting strategy?

Hokie fan | W&M grad

No, but we sure as hell keep trying to set it!

is there any mistake we haven't made in this game?

Hokie in West Africa...sadly, I can't jump up and down hard enough for it to be felt in Lane

Give it time. They will find a way to make one you have never seen.

Remember when this was supposed to be rock bottom for our program?

The folks here think those were the "good old days".

Holy shit.....Is this a bad dream?

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

Well folks, I'm not commenting much today. But if anybody tries to defend this offensive product out on the field today, you are legitimately crazy.

Youth.

Clearly the problem.

Especially when your OL outweighs their DL by >50 lbs at every position

Not an excuse any longer. Year 4 of the same offense, against Furman. Our 3rd string should be running on them.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

We have to leading the nation in unforced errors.

We put the K in Kwality

Getting ugly ... again and again and again and again and again ...

Consistently bad, and GOOD at that

Welp....this is fun

Georgia State scored 48 on them last week.

I really want to just let loose in the game thread but I now it won't do much.

The illegal formation on the punt pushed me over the top. How the fuck do you do that? Woefully unprepared.

Marshall University student.
Virginia Tech fanatic.

WHAAAAAT THE FUCK IS THIS OFFENSE DOING

Justin is a dog shit head coach. Hokie Fireman could do a better job. Unbelievable.

Offense looking okay. Getting yards, but stalling out and making mistakes. Make critical mistake. Immediate 3 and out.

This is not a formula for success.

We put the K in Kwality

Are you kidding me? Are you watching th VT v Furman game?

Probably watching an Ohio st. game

I don't think you understand what I wrote.

We put the K in Kwality

3rd game of the season, zero excuses for coming out and playing like this

Wasting our time here.

I find it funny that Fuente preaches security and all we do is fumbleπŸ€”

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Keshawn King is so good, maybe we should give him more carries?

He's looking like a potential 1000 yard rusher this year, no offense to the other backs but he's head and shoulders above

Best vision of any VT running back since - dare I say it? - Ryan Williams?

Decisive, gets yards after contact, and explosive. Something the offense has been missing

Seriously, there is no excuse for this quality of play. It can't honestly be done. Watching people defend this team is almost as comical as watching the team fall apart.

...and now the missed tackles come back.

We put the K in Kwality

Hmmm....is this even worse than last year's ODU game?

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

At least we cut the cancer out of the lockerroom!! That was going to solve all our problems!

This comment does not help

VB born, class of '14

How exactly does it hurt?

How exactly does it help?

Spoiler Alert: none of our comments here have any impact on the team or how they're playing. Calling out the BS we heard preseason doesn't mean anything, just like all of your commentary.

You know? Never mind.

You do you.

Maybe the cancer wasn't just the players.

Marshall University student.
Virginia Tech fanatic.

I can take hard fought losses all day long, but becoming a national embarrassment is going to bring down 30 years of work that built this program up from nothing. We don't have the history or nationally recognized name brand to be a laughingstock for a few years and bounce right back to relevance.

I hope the Beamers are out enjoying their Saturday and not watching this mess.

Furman defense is giving up 47 pts per game.

We're going to bring the average WAY down

We put the K in Kwality

This is Furman, we should literally be able to hand them the offensive playbook and still put up 50+.

We need to find $15/million quick to get this guy out of town.

Lotto maybe?

Crawford is having a hell of a game. We should move to him to OL.

We put the K in Kwality

Not sure of the logic there?

/s

We put the K in Kwality

Ah yes.

Crawford really is coming into his own. What a great pickup by the staff!

Is it basketball season yet?

Ok, offense, do... something.

ETA: no, not that.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

They did, add an interception to the fumble.........pull Willis NOW, try SOMETHING ELSE

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

You have got to be fucking kidding me.

We put the K in Kwality

Beat me by a second

I'll drink anyway.

We put the K in Kwality

Yup, here's to you

You've got to be fucking kidding me

Hooker please

Is it basketball season yet?

Here comes Hendon, right??

Hokie fan | W&M grad

Hooker plz

Gobble Till You Wobble

there is zero reason why we do not see a different QB next series. This is absolutely insane that we are this bad.

Willis needs to go at this point.

If Willis is the best we have, how bad are the next few years going to get?

Don't worry, it's just youth.

I keep looking out the window and thinking how much more appealing yard work seems than watching this...

Eli Adams is a damn good player.

ahahahahhahahaahahahhahaha ahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha

Pull Willis!

BENCH WILLIS NOW

Mitch (2)

You have got to be fucking kidding me.

FUENTE. GROW SOME BALLS & PLAY A DIFFERENT FUCKING QB

Ball security? The fuck is that? Dude, burn it all down, put Patterson in and play for next year. This is a fucking travesty!

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

I doubt Patterson is any better. Poor recruiting. That's the problem.

Patterson ca literally fall forward for 2 yards. That alone is an improvement.

We put the K in Kwality

How do we know though?

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

I mean, was he throwing INTs in warmups or something?

We put the K in Kwality

Furman has a RS Freshman QB DESTROYING a supposed D1 Bud Foster Defense. I think we could throw anyone out there and they should actually, idk, not throw a pick every game.*

*Willis didn't throw a pick against ODU, but not for lack of trying.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

The two freshman in the Oline might be hurting us, but Willis is absolutely killing us

Gosh....please sit Willis!!!

Touchdown Tech!!

Did they ignore the block in the back?

He did pull his hand up right after the push. "I'm sorry".

We put the K in Kwality

The obvious reaction that I did do something wrong

They don't usually call blocks in the back behind the line of scrimmage.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Especially 10 yards behind the line with the ref staring right at it.

We put the K in Kwality

I worried about Vegas. Favoring us in any game is a sucker bet.

We put the K in Kwality

Remember when King got.benched for not fumbling

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Yes, because turnovers aren't a problem for us.

Yeah it would be nice if the QB wasn't throwing INTs like he's giving away candy at Halloween

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

BaLl SeCuRiTy Is MoSt ImPoRtAnt

Furman is officially kicking our ass. FURMAN.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Fire Cornelson, Bench Willis, Give King more carries...it's not fuckin hard

1-0 every week

We're getting killed in TOP. This doesn't set us up well with a thin defense.

We put the K in Kwality

This offense gets one more series from me, then I'm watching something else.

The ball security or bench thing isn't going to apply to Willis, is it? He's going to come right back out...

...and turn it over again

Bet your ass he will. King doesn't even fumble and is benched. Fuente is playing 4D chess while the rest of college football is playing lawn darts

Shellshocked at 14-3 and more so if Willis comes out again.......oh, and throw another turnover in there that would really cap this atrocity.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

I'm not even mad.....just disappointed.

Touchdown Tech!!!

This is so frustrating to watch.

SLC

We are losing to Furman. By 2 scores.

We put the K in Kwality

14-3 Furman

Fuente should be fired today if this score holds

FTFY

He should be fired today period.

It couldn't get worse than this.

"Bad seeds" weren't the problem with this team. Its the coaching. Plain and simple.

Maybe some Turkey Bacon at halftime will help? Lmao

Lol...blitz was exactly what they wanted there

We are down 11 to fucking Furman

This is extremely embarrassing.

Ashby is slow as crap.

Ashby's a player. The Furman QB is D-1 talent, he just outran an LB (which should happen). Deablo was the one who whiffed on a tackle on that play.

Is it basketball season yet?

Wrong

Becton gave up contain. Lots of LB aren't going to catch their QB from behind.

He's still slow.

But you're right, the contain wasn't there.

An elephant could have avoided Ashby there, but where is the contain.

This.is.sad.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

I legit don't think we can come back down 2 scores at this point

I don't think we can score twice.

We put the K in Kwality

HH. HH HH HH HH HH

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Our defense shits themselves at any sign of adversity. Offense is obviously atrocious as well.

This is all on the offense. These turnovers make it so that the defense is out there all the time on a short field.

Turnovers are horrible but holding to a FG is a possibility - we are like 0-5 in that category.

No, you can't take all of the blame and put it on the offense. There is plenty to go around.

Offset the downvote. But no, this one is entirely on the offense. The defense has done work. Sacks, forced fumble, etc. Glad the offense is kinda turning it around for the quarter but it was the only thing killing the team so far.

They had negative yards before our first turnover. 14 points off turnovers. Can't play constant defense. The offense had to stop putting our D in a hole to start.

We put the K in Kwality

Barf

I hope to god they send me a donation form next week (Drive for 25). Does Whit think we need to pay extra for this?

We put the K in Kwality

Our offense causes more turnovers than touchdowns. 14 points off of turnovers against Furman. Predictable outcomes my behind.

I wonder if Bud is retiring because of Fuente

Reach for Excellence!

VT Football: It'll get after ya!

Proud Hokie since 2004.

Bud should be our interim head coach the rest of the season

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

Starting at halftime

HokieSpider

I cant believe we passed bud over for this shit show.

I'd love to ask Fuente whether he feels like he would deserve his $15mil buyout if/when he gets fired.

This was all part of the game plan...right?!?!?!?

β€œThe Cup is Going Nowhere Mikey!!!!!”

I missed the first drive because I'm in a car, so I've only watched us do like 6 offensive snaps and two of them were turnovers in our half. The other three were a three and out where we got sacked on third down.

Stay in your car.

And listen to music.

Feeling like my 2nd free Hulu trial to watch us play is a waste again......this is hard to watch, smh!!

Touchdown Tech!!

I hate Fuente

What really makes me mad is this shit turns me into a terrible human being. It's like I am injecting my self with a drug that makes me a raging prick.

Much of TKP seems infected.

What an absolute joke

Go for it

If we lose this game the Fuente has to go.

SLC

No defensive end containment IS the problem

Fuck it. Put Quincy in.

i can't believe Willis is still in there... then again I can

Well, if anybody follows soccer, at least Manchester City are losing.

The Boo Birds are out.

Is it basketball season yet?

WHY WILLIS AGAIN?!?!?!

Booing the Willis!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Can Fuente. Let him take his shit ass OC with him.

VTMidge

Of fucking course Willis is back out there

Fuck you if you're a RB who fumbles, but 7 INTs over 2 and a half games? You good, bro

King Alum of the House Hokie, the First of His Name, Khal of the Turkey Legs, The rightful Heir to the Big Board, the Unbanned, Breaker of Trolls and Father of Gritty

We get it. You hate Fuente.

He didn't say "fuck you" to a running back, he said "get better at ball security". We have other running backs.

But Fuente obviously thinks Willis is the best option at QB. Get over it.

Do you not recognize the damage caused by a leader who holds certain people to hard and fast standards and not others?

If HH or QP are simply too bad to replace a turnover machine that's ALSO his fault, by the way....

I think Fuente plays the best option available.

That's what I think.

The damage seems mostly to a certain segment of TKP.

Losing doesn't seem like a good option.

We put the K in Kwality

But, like, is he the best option? This is a FCS school, no better time to experiment then now.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

You have a point.

Not to mention if Willis isn't SIGNIFICANTLY better than HH and QP, we are doomed the next 2-3 years.

Let's Go...

Willis is not going to win games. Pull him and put in someone who can.

HH and QP have eligibility left.

We put the K in Kwality

Then Fuente clearly can't coach quarterbacks if he has no one else on the team that is better than this.

Either way, the problem starts and ends with him.

It starts and ends with Fuente, but you have no idea what the situation is with Hooker or Patterson.

Nada.

Repeat after me.

HH has been here 3 yrs. QP 2 yrs.

If they are not better than Willis right now, than Fuente cannot coach QBs or his evals stink.

Clemson dominated Alabama with a Fr. QB last year...it doesn't take 3 years to groom a starter.

Clemson dominated Alabama with a Fr. QB last year...it doesn't take 3 years to groom a starter.

I think very few freshman quarterbacks would be able to stay in the game against an Alabama-like team. Trevor

Lawrence was one of the most highly rated quarterback recruits ever, with multiple recruiting experts calling him a "once in a generation" type of player."

Willis' stats (source https://hokiesports.com/cumestats.aspx?path=football ) :
Games played: 3
Rating: 144.98
Comp/Attempts 62 / 96
INT 4
PCT: 64.58 %
YDS : 739
TD : 7
Long : 55
AVG/G : 246.33

The really bad stat in that list is the interceptions but the rest of the numbers are not bad.

NOTE: This is a post-game post.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

It's too bad that that the stat that might have the biggest impact on the game is the one that is terrible at. These INTs are bad luck, they are indicative of Willis' playstyle and constant staring down of his receivers. So sure, he might be solid at the rest, but he is dreadful at ball security and that kills us.

Fuck who the QB is. We should be able to line up and run the safest plays on the planet and score almost every drive against Furman. The fact that we have to run such high risk reward plays against them is pathetic.

Yep you got me.

I think Fuente is just being hardheaded at this point. Like, if BaLl SeCuRiTy is soooo important to him, Willis shouldn't be playing. From the outside looking in, I don't think they prep the backup QB so if you put them in, they'll be even more woefully unprepared. Solely judging by the fact that they don't let them throw when they do get the chance to play, as seldom as that may be.

I also think Willis is Fuente's dude. It's a hill Fuente has decided to die on, and he just may do that.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

RB who didn't fumble at that

Won't argue with the sentiment, but it's 4 INTs, not 7

It looks like every player on our team is inside their own head.

We may be young but they are playing a freshman QB!!!

β€œThe Cup is Going Nowhere Mikey!!!!!”

Young doesn't mean they don't know how to play.

Overcrowded campus, falling academic standards and rankings, professors leaving the university, crap football team. The administration need to get their shit together.

This is so true.

I am not donating to Virginia tech for a large variety of reasons. They are witch hunting fraternities, they are trying to make the campus all "woke" and push social agendas instead of university core values and good academics, and their football team now sucks.

Train wreck.

Your post is so on point and ironic to the title of this thread "Hokies looking to put together complete performance"

Would like to hear more about this...

Not typically a popular opinion with fraternities due to the stereotypes but i'm glad you brought it up because they're absolutely being forced out. Every group, affiliated or not, has their bad apples. I'm even willing to concede that fraternities proportionally may have more than the rest of the student body (though i don't actually believe it). What frustrated me in school and continues to is that these organizations are under a constant microscope and witch hunted at all times. People should be punished when they do wrong, as should organizations. But the independent act of a fraternity member does not represent the whole. If it is an organization wide issue, by all means burn it down. In contrast, if one kid in Lee Hall smokes weed in his room, don't punish every resident. Disappointing to see alot of good people all be labeled like that. Rant over, hoping it made as much sense as I thought.

This is an absolute train wreck. The Furman defense is HORRIBLE and Fuente/Corny can't get anything going. Based on the product we've seen so far, I'm not sure we have a single ACC win on the schedule.

I am glad they pulled Dzansi. He has been underperforming all year. Penalties and just getting beat. Then he turns around dumbfounded and watches Willis in the pile behind him.

The entire staff needs to go. There are problems all over the place. So disgusted right now!

This is embarrassing. I was withholding judgement before, but this staff has to go. Team is ridiculously undisciplined, the o-line is getting whipped by a bunch of 200 lb FCS players, and the play calling is being done by a blind dog texting and drinking a smoothie.

Yep. Bud has to be beyond checked out at this point. Just get through the season and move on.

When is the last time we recovered a fumble or intercepted a pass?

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

It honestly doesn't matter if we win from this position. Being down 14-3 to fucking Furman at home at the half is absolutely pathetic and should never happen.

You're right, that shouldn't happen, but it does matter if we win.

I didn't think it was possible but this team looks worse than last year

I honestly think the defense looks better. The O looks worse.

Is it basketball season yet?

Hope everyone has a good Saturday, hopefully with some good beverages of your choice, maybe get that project done that you have been putting off. I'm signing out for today.

1-0 every week

Lets hope for some major second half adjustments.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I cannot remember a single time our O made in game adjustments.

We put the K in Kwality

I get it that during the flow of the game that might be how you feel but now (after the game is over) it did look like they did make some adjustments. The offense ended up scoring 21 points in the second half and held Furman to 3. I admit that this is a post-game comment and during the game it did not look good for the Hokies.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I agree it was an in-game comment. But I really didn't feel like we adjusted. We ran pretty much the same plays, the offense had no flow (and it's usual boneheaded calls). We just executed those same plays better.

We put the K in Kwality

Not intended as an argument but perhaps the better execution was due to blocking adjustments or something else that the coaches did. That is what I want to be true, but I will defer to others that have better insight into such matters.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Ok. I'm done. Put willis back in after he's thrown 2 picks and got us down 14 to 3 at the half against FURMAN!??????? I'll tune back in when this dude's not behind center for VT. I hate to be this
way but this situation is turning me off of football not just VT and I LOOOOOOVE football.

quick edit: I'm working night shift 60 to 70 hours a week. Hadn't went to sleep when I posted this. He had thrown one actual pick at this point. I was wrong. Still that one pass should have been a pick and would have been against FBS db's so I was still counting it.

It is a natural gift I posess to create friction in sensitive situations.

Man that was a suck 1/2.

HH comes out in 3rd!

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Phew. Just got spared a TD.

Let's Go...

What if we just demoted Fuente..... would we still have to pay 15 mil? Let Bud coach as HC for the rest of the season.

Im on board with this.

Because our offensive coaching staff is clueless.

The fact that it's virtually impossible to fire Fuente after this year, and he has nothing really to lose at this point by putting in Hooker and still won't do it is the most telling to me.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

What does it tell you?

That he constantly sticks with what isn't working, similar to the offensive playcalling.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

That he's hardheaded and clueless.

That he'd rather break a hammer trying to bash a square peg into a round hole.

And that the transfer portal will once again be filled with Hokies this offseason.

It tells me that he believes that HH or QP will play worse than a QB with 5 (might be 4 but the point still stands) picks in 2.5 games. Which is pretty bad. So both of our backups are also pretty bad, and that means that we have 3 QBs who have been with the team 2+ years and none of them are good.

That is a problem.

Get Angry, Bud!

Tells me he thinks proving himself as Willis' coach is more important to him than winning games.

I'm looking forward to the commercial breaks at this point ... considering investing in those 14mg gold plated buffalo coins that I've now seen advertised more times than VT has points thus far... $50 retail, marked down to $9.99!

To good Friends... good health... and the besting of Hoos.

Funny thing, Cornelson flips those Buffalo Coins to determine his next playcall.

Those things are magic, I tell ya!!

Unfortunately that fake coin may be a better bet than VT in any game this year. ☹️

this comment gave me the best laugh of the day. thanks!

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

I hate to be Captain Obvious here but I'm just looking at the team stat line.
We have held Furman to 107 total yards - 42 passing, 65 rushing. Furman has 0 return yards in both pr and kr. And those stats - those meager stats have us down 14-3 at half. I don't even know what else to say, think or do.

Turnovers are a bitch.

Especially when combined with 3 n outs the inability to get the sticks moving on your other, non-turnover possessions.
I would consider me one of the more optimistic fans on here but man - I'm feeling like I might just be an idiot.

I'm right there with you.

Do you need a turnover chain?

Is it basketball season yet?

I might need that and a woobie. And a beer. And then another one and some whiskey. And then get to the point where I just run around my backyard with my turnover chain, crying.

We have a chain of turnovers.

I think we're doing it wrong.

This made me laugh!

Is it basketball season yet?

Ok so, I see some Fuente defenders aren't defending him right now, Twitter, here, Insta.... Stadium is quiet or booing. I'm not sure what bizzaro world I'm in, but I don't like it. I'm proud of this University, my time at the school, and as fans we are all proud. We can't stand for this. We play for ACC titles and a shot at the playoffs, every year. That should always be the expectation. So, yes please, demand more, demand better. I hope we light it up in the 2nd, but this shit hurts.

ESPN has Furman's win probability at 57.1%. It's an uphill battle but we can still get it done. We just have to play clean football. Stop the dumb penalties and eliminate the turnovers on offense. I don't know why this is so hard for us.

Also, credit to Furman for actually playing clean football. A first half where they have 0 turnovers and 0 penalties.

Cause we have a shitty head coach that's why its hard

Tales told of battles won

Caligula would grin

Yeah Fuente's so bad that he personally threw those picks and lost those fumbles, something no other coach has ever been able to do

When it's hard to pinpoint exactly which players are the problem, penalties build up, play calls take a long time, substitutions are sloppy, these are hallmarks of a culture that does not contain attention to detail. These are hallmarks of a poor coaching staff.

Get Angry, Bud!

Poor coaching. I'm an expert because I have had to watch Ron Rivera repeatedly torpedo the Panthers, mismanage their talent and give half-assed excuses. Lots of Panthers games look like this game.

Get Angry, Bud!

VT leads the nation in turnovers with 9. 5 by Willis, keep him in. Good stuff.

I was sitting in my Bandwagon Construction shop doing some work and I just got a massive order for more bandwagons from the Fire Fuente Coalition. Business is booming!

This game is no fluke. Both teams are equal in the stats column except ... VT two turnovers, Furman none, and VT five penalties, Furman none. Which team is more disciplined?

True.

But you'd hope we'd be both more disciplined AND better.

The answer is right on the TV screen. Hire Richt if he's willing to come out of the studio...

If we fire Feunte we won't have the money to hire anyone except maybe a half decent FCS school.

Can we save all the shit for after the game please. Let's see how the coaches adjust and if we end up losing we can flip shit. No need to get all mad now if we end up coming back.

I first read that as "no need to get all mad cow".

Was good for a chuckle, and I needed one.

But it's so much fun to overreact!

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

We shouldn't be in the spot to need adjustments to beat fucking Furman

Yes, I'm purging my negativity starting now. Maybe we can collectively muster up some positivity that will somehow get it's way into the football team. Make your own luck baby!!!

A comeback would be nice, however there is no reason that Virginia Tech should be losing to Furman 14-3 at the half. People are understandably upset.

This is a loser mentality, and would demonstrate complacency.

There is no excuse for this first half, and giving any coach the benefit of the doubt is a mistake, doesn't matter if we end up winning by 50.

Uhhh, have you been watching the last year of Hokie football. I'd say we are the definition of a crap team in the second half.

Is it basketball season yet?

It has really been a Jekyll and Hyde team. Terrible first half against BC, good second half except for turnovers. Good first half against ODU, mediocre second half. Dismal first half here against Furman, so please keep the trend alive. Loving me some King and Crawford though.

POSITIVITY TRAIN STILL ACCEPTING TICKETS AND THIS BAD BOY IS A HIGH SPEED RAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!

You're the sole reason that Tech is winning the game haha

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE AND YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE!!!!

The best 3rd quarter we've had in over a year!!

Is it basketball season yet?

I'M SAVING A SPOT FOR YOU

This does not forgive first half cesspool

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Sad thing is, a massive 2nd half will only mask our actual problems for another two weeks unfortunately....

Yes, and when we play teams that we don't have a massive talent advantage over, we won't be able to pull off 2nd half comebacks.

Much like last year, when we struggled to score in 2nd half of many ACC games

Running game is pretty good as of now

Caligula would grin

I'll give Willis some credit, beautiful throw.

Let's Go...

Apparently the back shoulder fade is the only ball Willis can consistently throw.

I criticize knowing full well I could never do what these athletes do.

If it takes old-school Hokieball to get this offense producing, I'm here for all of it.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Did we get a new OC during halftime?

One of my guys at the stadium said he has been in the bathroom since halftime.

"Vick, dashing back . . . here he comes again . . . Electrifying . . . and have you ever seen anything like this?"

Tell him NOT TO LEAVE>

Make no changes.

I give Willis credit for his toughness, I really do. Several times per game he's out there lowering his shoulder and going for yardage.

As I said in another post, Willis is more like a Logan Thomas or a Michael Brewer than a Vick or Taylor. He is a gritty player.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Agreed but would rather have Thomas or Brewer

Let's Go...

Radio says King is ok cleared to play

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

Wish we could've snapped the ball before Tre had a defender on him

But on the other hand, I like watching him burn defenders.

No, I *don't* want to go to the SEC. Why do you ask?

We don't love dem Hoos.

Credit where credit is due on that drive. Willis made an excellent read on that read option.

The screen playcall to just get the first down on second and short was good, and on the fade, we showed the same power formation that we showed on a power run earlier, ensuring complete isolation for Tre.

Is laying on top of a defender not a hold? Lol....

Better question...why are we getting pushed to the ground by Furman?

LET'S GO D, GET EM OFF THE FIELD

HOLD ON TO THE LEGSSSS DAXXY BOY

He can't stand up because his wrist hurts?

I mean, don't boo him, but that's a bit transparent. I guess it makes sense to save a timeout.

He flopped to the ground to get the injury timeout too.

Recruit Prosim

YESSSSSS, GET OFF THE FUCKING FIELD FURMANNNN

Why fair catch inside the 10?

"Hey Bud, you wont have to hold the opponent to 17 points anymore."

22 bringing the wood day. Easily the player of the game up to this point.

Willis missed that read.

Is it basketball season yet?

Commentator said it was a good read.

There was an unblocked linebacker.

That was also the same commentator who mentioned earlier that Furman was in man coverage when they were in zone (this list could be very long here).

Is it basketball season yet?

The same commentator who has been saying 'Dalton King' and was talking about King's ball security issues earlier?

King did have some ball security issues.

It has been discussed thoroughly on TKP.

I think you're missing the point. The commentator is clearly not terribly knowledgable about the game or the players playing the game.

Edit: And your boy gets a down vote for that? Classic

Is it basketball season yet?

aand there's the Willis who can't read again

When people say Willis makes the wrong read on the read option ....

Yeah

The O-lineman with the tackle.

Is it basketball season yet?

Cornelson is back from bathroom apparently.
