HOKIES!!!!!

Oh sorry. My mistake

I was wondering when this would pop up. 5:27 pm wins the pool.

And that's because the hype train is out of water and wood.

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

GO HOKIES!

LETS GO

Hokies

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

Go Hokies baby! I hope to wake up to good news. Please let this age well.

In another country?

Meh /s am I doing it right?!

0-1 so far today against duke. Let's even up the series tonight!

We have to have the worst starting field position after a kickoff return in the country.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

First down!

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Wow. Playcalling on 1st 2 plays is awful. Lucky there to convert on 3rd down.

We are a averaging a comment per game minute outside of this comment

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

No more jet sweeps!

Jet sweep is the new stinespring screen

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Game isn't til 8 EST

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

The pre snap motion is the player that gets the ball on nearly every play so far. Hope we start to use this as a decoy at some point. Far too predictable and slow moving on first possession

Offense just never runs a hot route on a blitz. It is beyond their ability.

The jet sweep is so predictable. You've gotta fake it sometimes and either run the QB or have an RPO based off of it. Teams are just selling out for the jet sweep hard against us.

And here I was hoping that a bye week with Jerry Kill would spice up the offense, even a tiny bit.

The jet sweep exists to help set up other things. The thing I can't figure out is why we seem to only have on blocker trying to block 3-4 guys.

Is it basketball season yet?

because we ran it to short side of field and didnt pull any linemen to help

We've run it to both the boundary and the field side and it was the same

Is it basketball season yet?

I see you D!

Using /s is for cowards.

three and out for our defense. I like it.

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

Could... could the D be back?

Outspoken team cake advocate. Hates terrapins. Resident Macho Man Gif Poster. Distant cousin to Dork Magic. Frequently misspells words.

Defense looked good on 1st possession. Did a good job staying in lane and not letting QB break contain.

Good defensive series.

Now the offense gets to start on the Blue Devils instead of back inside our own 20. Come on Offense, show us you've got game!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Certainly less than I had hoped. /s

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Plays look broken before the defense even makes contact. Taking too long to develop and many times going to wrong side of the field like the jet sweep to the short side. Then Willis deciding to run on the final play just infuriated me as there was no chance he was getting 9 yards there. Even if there didnt appear to be something open, at that point of the field giving it two more seconds to pass rather then surrender run at least gives us a chance at first down. Taking a sack there because of field position isnt terrible either with Bradfords leg. At least the defense looked good out the gate.

And he saw the blitz coming and did not audible or run a hot route.

Agree with you on slow developing plays. I went back and watched some games from 2016, and the difference in overall speed and how fast everyone played is night and day. We just look slow and predictable.

Your point is taken. On the positive side, he did not do anything stupid with the ball.

So far, the kicking game and the defense are playing well.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

This game is looking eerily like the Logan Thomas era. Bad offense. Defense keeping us in game.

Encouraging first defensive series, let's turn the field position into something!

Have we seen King yet?

He got a carry on the first series

Thanks I just got home.

This offense :/

This is an offense Evan Williams could love.

So predictable on offense. 3rd down drag route, jet sweeps, etc. Just missing the obvious screen pass

VB born, class of '14

Where is King, get him some touches!

Good news is the announcers said that Bradburn is earning wearing the #25 jersey.........everything must be going great. /s

I know some will think this is an over reaction, but Cornelsen is not a power 5 OC. Our best year was Evans throwing up 50/50 balls and we had good enough WR to go up and get them.

Pitiful offense and all 3 and outs on D. WHAT YEAR IS IT?

Using /s is for cowards.

Bud Foster ladies and gentlemen

"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

Nice return by Grimsley!

Hazelton sighting!

Did that announcer just say that putting 11 men within 9 yds of line of scrimmage is "daring us to run" ?

Okay, so King is McClease, and McClease is King. Got it.

I really wish the announcers could learn to read a fucking number.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

LOL ... Willis gave McClease a tap on the arm before the snap and *surprise* gave him the ball

one of these plays is going to handoff to Duke player in the backfield with the molasses developing time

Why do we keep taking King out? Isn't establishing a rhythm key to the position?

That was an asinine play call.

Which one....the one where you bring in QP and think you're fooling a defense thinking hes going to do anything other than run it....

or

the terrible fade

I'm going to assume you're going to go with....."yes"

Yes.

Quincy Patterson sighting...and he runs it.

Tyrod Taylor stiff armed me at Cassell once. I never washed that cheek again.

That wildcat package is the most infuriating BS I have ever seen........We have to do something different with it other than run the QB

Agreed, even if it's just a one read throw they need to keep defenses honest with that formation

I will say this. For the first time all season I saw Willis decoy with his eyes in one direction and throw in a different direction. Progress!!!

that was intercepted. Wonder how that works with replay and penalty. If turnover was he then blocking Willis on the return?

Talk about getting bailed out

"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

Cornelsen makes Stinespring look like Lincoln Riley

Ugh...

When you can't run the football and when you can't trust your QB to throw it...

Is it basketball season yet?

This offense is flat out ugly and hard to watch. Get gifted a 1st and goal on what should have been an int and still can't punch it in.

Hooray...

Of all the possible play calls right there...

Using /s is for cowards.

Ugly. Only a field goal. And only reason we got a field goal was Duke penalties

Why the hell do you run the ball on 3rd if you know you're not going to go for it on 4th . Smh stupid play calling

On a positive note, we are moving the football.

Is it basketball season yet?

Nope. Only reason we advanced was penalties

Wow that scene with the robot was ridiculous. I get getting the program some ad time but then having it on a board that needed to be dragged off was bad. Put some wheels on it so it rolls off.

It's one dimensional; like our offense.

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

Our DL looks OLD SCHOOL tonight!

Is it basketball season yet?

Thank god for the defensive side of the ball

Duke has only 5 yards total offense in the first quarter! Bud is working his magic!

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

D is swarming! Now it's time for the offense to take advantage of this great field position they've been getting all night. What year is it again?

We can't run for shit for 3 games including games against ODU and Furman....

First and Goal from the 5.... 3 straight runs...
🤦‍♂️

If we win 13-0 I'll celebrate the hell out of it lol...through one qtr the D looks vintage

Thank god for Bud Foster! It is glaringly obvious that Corn has no business calling a P5 offense. Bud will be the only reason we win 6-7 games this year.

Weak ass PI call there...

that was not pass interference. only my opinion.

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

where was the PI at?

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Are we good or they bad....

Yes.

I'm probably gonna go with neither. Unless you mean our defense and their offense. In which case I'm hopeful we're good or at least decent and improving.

Are these QB changes by necessity (injury) or is the QB competition back open?

I'll say it's open again

That probably closed it....

Back open. Willis is sitting and deservedly so

Just wait until he puts in Vick in a few series from now.

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

Hooker!!!

god damn Hendon is elusive!

There's a least one Hooker seeing some action tonight in the burg.

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

Wow. What a run by Hooker

And that's it for King tonight

Everyone clamoring for the QB change should be satisfied now.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Well Willis can't run and to be honest his passing stats have not been good so I think the move is warranted

I'll accept a few initial turnovers in the short term if Hooker can provide a more longer term spark to our offense.

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

Yep....everyone happy now? U got QP and Hooker all haphazardly. Everyone happy?

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

T-118th in FBS.

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

WTH, I left when Hendon was the QB and I come back and Duke has scored?

Can someone actually tell me what Happened?

offense fumbled it. Duke threw a 16 yard pass to a wide open tight end the next play.

Tyrod Taylor stiff armed me at Cassell once. I never washed that cheek again.

A less than ideal exchange between Hooker and King. Ball on the ground. Seems like it was King's fault to me.

Nice seeing King for a little bit tonight, maybe we will see him next game.

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

We're a mess on offense lol...that 7 isn't on the D imo

Yes. That wasn't on the defense and honestly the offense can be blamed for most of our issues this entire season thus far.

😖

Now, instead of making his players sit in timeout, will Fuente coach them up and help them learn from their mistakes with more series?

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

Well that was fun

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

I am so happy to be a hokie.

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

Just like the BC game, spotting Duke 7 on a turnover deep in our own territory.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Why the fuck won't the coaching staff even let Hooker throw a screen? To the slot? Just to maybe make the defense think ever so slightly it might now be a run. The incompetence is absurd. I'm over it. New head coach needed

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

That is one fumble that can not be blamed on Willis.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

If we could score points the TOs wouldnt be so deadly. But when you only have 3 pts after your D gives you great field position. and completely shuts down the opponent for an entire quarter, one wrong move can completely flip the script

Duke has 24 total yards and is beating us by 4.....

This result is vintage Fuente this year.

I'm surprised about the complaints here.

People have been screaming to put Hooker in.

Edit: let me chill

Honestly, the way this season has been, a 4 point deficit to Duke feels insurmountable

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

Agree

Bruh, the amount of ads is killing me.

How can a penalty on a tackle be after the play?

Not only do specialize in turnovers, but wow do we do them in miserable field condition.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Stick'em. I want all the money from the Drive for 25 to be allocated to buying Stick'em.

I'd prefer a competent offensive coordinator...

... Willis back in? What's up? What are we doing?

Desperately trying anything to make the offense work. Really looks like a rudderless ship on offense right now.

Offense has a rudder. They just have no engine and are lost at sea.

I'm sure we'll see Nick Sorensen in at QB before the night is over.

Punishment on Hooker for fumble.

Damn. High school offenses execute at a much higher rate. We look so disjointed

Soooo, only throw when Willis is in, only run when Hooker is in. Dope.

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

Since Fuente only uses the other QBs as running backs, if a fumble occurs when they are in, he doesn't let them play anymore. However, if they were allowed to throw the ball, they would be allowed up to 5 interceptions each.

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

Which is better?

(1) Completely incapable offense, or

(2) High risk / high reward offense

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

This team is one good QB away from being an 8 win team. It's frustrating.

I'd say the same but possibly even 9 or 10.

this is the most uninspired offense i have ever seen in my life, even more so than during the early 2000's. everything just moves slow and janky.

Tyrod Taylor stiff armed me at Cassell once. I never washed that cheek again.

This play calling and clueless coaching on offense is garbage.

Everyone take a very deep breath... its going to be a long night.

Keep those Dazed and Confused gifs comin. Only bright spot so far...

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

This team and coaching is garbage. Mostly the coaching (the coaches didn't fumble that ball). Thank god I have reservations at a nice steakhouse and then laughing to Tom Segura tonight. I'm out.

If the Hokies don't have a real OC by the end of the season, they will lose a donor forever

Have fun. Bye!

Have fun at your steakhouse. Hope you get a nice garbage steak to go along with your garbage attitude.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Chill. No need to go at dude

Nah, I don't take it very well when people come on here and call these kids garbage. They are 18-22 year olds busting their tails off, it's garbage IMO to call them garbage.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Willis has to see the field. Even if Patterson caught that, there was no way he was getting the first down. The football IQ is just so lacking.

What frustrates me is he had a pocket. He had time to go through progressions.

I can't get over the fact that all 3 of our QBs have played with the starter apparently healthy. Does anyone have a clue at all what were doing on offense?

Our head coach and OC definitely do not.

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

This offense is a disaster. The coaching staff has no vision and the lack of standards on who gets pulled when is a complete enigma.

Solid time wasting, we will run the real plays later.

Mitch (2)

My horse for a goddamn Stinespring offense

So far, you're getting it.

Well, except for those long drives.

Nah. At least we wouldn't turn it over every other play

I've only seen one turnover.

Jesus Christ dude.

End of first Quarter.

Bud Foster thought bubble.

"I am still carrying this !*&%! Offense"

Overheard as Duke assistant coaches took elevator down from press box: “Guys, they stopped the run with a three-man front.” - David Teel Tweet 2018

Not with Duke driving now

Anyone in for Oceans 14, rob a bank for $15 mil so we can buy out Fuente and hand the reins to Bud for 5 years?

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

Bud has to go too. I love the guy but we need a whole rebuild

Thanks for fan-splaining to us, Mr. Announcer.

To be fair, it sounds like the students need a bit of fan-splaining.

Oh, how far the mighty has fallen. Our fanbase used to get it. Now they have color commentators explaining things to them.

/sigh

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Idk about y'all but I have been doing a lot of laughing this season. I think it's a "laugh to keep from crying" defense mechanism.

This game so far on offense has done more to lessen my belief that this staff can't fix the offense. It's dead and broken.

Also these announcers suck.

Why are our fans booing a Duke injury when Duke is on offense (or anytime for that matter)?

Why were our fans booing? Not a good look

Taylor, looking desperately throws it deep..HAS A MAN OPEN DANNY COALE WITH A CATCH ALL THE WAY DOWN TO THE FIVE!!!!....hes still open

Probably pent up negative emotions combined with a general lack of football knowledge.

He lost a shoe, then faked an injury. It was bullshit.

To what end? He has to come out of the game if he fakes the injury and they still can't hurry up.

Free time out since they can't go tempo with the lost shoe. It's bullshit and should be delay of game.

If Duke scores here, I honestly don't think we can score 11 more points.

Not catchable.
But why push the receiver down?

To be fair he hands his hands on him then their feet got tripped up, made it look like a push/ tackle

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

Stupid PI on Conner....

Now the defense looks terrible

It's almost like the Duke coaching staff made offensive adjustments.

What are those?

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

Excited for the start of the CMYball era am I right or what?

Using /s is for cowards.

We just suck. Have to accept it at this point.

We missed our opportunity to get up early while the D was playing lights out. The turnover completely deflated the emotions of our young team and we are in BIG TROUBLE

14-3 feels insurmountable

TBH so did 7-3

Lol it really does.

Using /s is for cowards.

insert your own caption... regardless of what it is this gif is appropriate for it

You'll be sorry you left me off the cricket team!

Fuente is just trying to get to next season when he has Braxton Burmeister.

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

Well he cannot be fired so you may be right.

I guess now we are saying wait until Burmeister can play. I have heard that for two years running about Hendon Hooker and Quincy Patterson. We have been kicking the can down the road since Fuente arrived. I do hope that Burmeister will be developed enough to play next year. Our offense is so inept that we don't even look like a division 1 school.

I personally agree with you. I fear that Fuente has completely abandoned Hooker and Patterson due to his complete inability to coach and/or develop QBs. He appears to only be able to play or retain QBs that were coached by others. And yes, our offense is completely offensive.

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

Ok 14-3 this game is slipping away. Or maybe it has already slipped away. I honestly don't think the offense can catch up.

Josh Jackson just threw a pick

make an other games thread and put this in there, I don't give a damn about Josh Jackson anymore and don't care to see his name mentioned in a Game thread about VT vs Duke.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Calm down.

This team is fucking terrible. Which is a shame because there's a lot of talent out there. Justin Fuente is 100% to blame and at this point there's not much reason to think it can improve.

Dont forget, its young talent.

/s

So it's the Hooker/King miscue was his fault?

I mean, half the people on this site were screaming for Hooker in the last game.

Yes. All of our poor play is his fault. He is the head coach and this is his program and it is getting worse every week. That's all his fault.

There's still a lot of game left... But damn, this is a bad looking team folks. I don't think there's really any other way to slice it.

At this point I wouldn't expect either streak to extend this year. It's going to be a tough season and a looong off season

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

I am so glad to be a hokie

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

Now watch us go fast on offense and score. 🤷🏻‍♂️

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

Honestly, I debated watching this game tonight. I'm just not sure I want to care this much about the Hokies this season, because I'm afraid my heart is going to be ripped out of my chest.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Which is a shame because there's a lot of talent out there.

Really?

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

I think there is.

But they really do need to get it together.

There have been a few big miscues, and we're paying dearly for those.

You fucking Fuente homers pointing at Hooker fumbling as a way to defend Fuente not realizing its another indictment of Fuente. This staff has to fucking go.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Arkansas blew a 24-0 lead in the Belk Bowl.

You think Corn just now realized he should've run it on 3rd and 1. Nah, me either

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

We wonder why our transfer portal list grows.......the Tech kids see other teams come in and their skill position players actually make plays other than a 2 yard run or a jet sweep and stay on the field for more than 3 plays, as well as having fun.....they want a piece of that.

Man, Fuente looks nauseous.

Me watching this game

edit:
Nice run

You, and everyone else.

I kinda miss Jalen Holston. It works against us to have two small backs.

And as I type this, McClease gets loose.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Nice run

Tales told of battles won
Of things we've done
Caligula would grin

Fine line between great run and shitty playcall.

That was a good play call with the Defense backed out in full coverage for a pass.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Measured completely by fans via the number of yards gained.

Yes! So happy for McClease. He needed that. WE needed that!

When Fuente makes a poor coaching decision during the game, why doesn't Whit make him sit out the remainder of the game?

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

Because I think Cornelson is next man up.

Another stalled drive. And the boo birds are out. This is just ugly.

The boo birds should be out. This is so ugly.

We blew a big run by McClease...get fucking Cornelsen outta there

Agreed Cornelsen is complete ass

Tales told of battles won

If we cannot even score a TD with Willis in the game, can someone explain how that is somehow better than one of the other QBs? What is there to lose?

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

Bradburn has been a beast today. Doing #25 proud!

The best player on the team

Tales told of battles won
Of things we've done

Duke can soak the clock the rest of the game. Our offense cannot score.

So, I've been a Fuente apologist, but I'm ready to part ways at halftime and let Bud finish out the year... can't be any worse than this shit.

Edit: I'd be willing to give him till the end of the game if he would fire Cornelson at halftime

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

I can't believe it took you this long to see the light.

Fuente is short-sighted and is looking for the most effective way to lose by as few points as possible. He has absolutely no balls. There is absolutely no team in any sport that wins championships with an all-out conservative approach to everything.

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

If Duke goes up 21-3 at half I think you will see another half time exodus

I wouldn't blame the fans if there was

VB born, class of '14

Ouch, this is getting ugly.

Pay the fucking 15 million dollars please

I don't know but this team is gonna be really bad until this coaching staff is gone

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

And that's the nuts

jesus. christ.

Tyrod Taylor stiff armed me at Cassell once. I never washed that cheek again.

What happened to the defense?

Why so many open receivers out there?

Overcompensating because the offense can't do shit

and as my wife just put it..."wow, goodnight Hokies."

Defense just got punked

I'll donate to the Drive for 25 if it means getting rid of this coaching staff

Same

I'm okay with firing Fu and Co after this game.

Someone defend Fuente now. I fucking dare you.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

I think I'm going to do something productive with the rest of my friday night. Good luck guys, hope you pull it out. I just can't do this anymore today.

Can someone make a gif of that guy drinking that water looking supremely defeated? Because that's how I feel right now

I'm shocked he didn't pull out the ass pocket bottle of whiskey.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I knew ACC play was gonna be rough, not this rough. We will be lucky to get out of this season with 5 wins total

The defense sucking can be mutually exclusive to the offense sucking. Especially when both drives where 9 plays

I'd be okay with him being the interim HC, right now. He earned it, after all his dedicated years.

Yep...time for a change of plan....Drive for 15 (million) to get this horrific coaching staff out of Blacksburg

Ok, we're going to be 0-2 in conference. The season is over in terms of any kind of challenge for the Coastal.

Willis is a senior and will be out of eligibility. Hooker or Patterson should start the rest of the way. Let them learn on the job now with the season in the can.

They can't. Fuente has them sitting in timeout b/c his other player fumbled.

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

Lol neither of them probably want to play. Don't want to get hurt for wherever they're transferring to

We are the worst coached team in the ACC.

Justin fucking sucks.

I just watched Virginia Tech get to another 3rd and 10+ 3rd down with 30 seconds left in the half. Fml its officially the offseason again.

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

We look beaten down already. This is what we used to do against Duke. Living in bizarro world😡

This is crippling for recruiting. Inept play calling, defense folding in the face of adversity, and now just lackluster effort with a lot of hanging heads. Fans booing their team. I hope they can come out and turn it around in the second half, because this aura and environment would seem very toxic to me as an outsider.

It's a complete shame how we seemed to have completely fallen off a cliff...

Fuck this team.

Boyz this game is over. The offense has no identity and it totally lost. No way to make up this deficit. I am turning it off and going to work out.

I'm fully onboard for a house cleaning now. I honestly don't think we can win a single ACC game this year. We are the worst coached team in the conference. I don't think Fuente can turn this around because I don't think he knows how honestly.

Fuente fucking punked is.

I have no idea why my username is VT_Warthog.

Whit, please do something! You are letting this guy completely ruin our program.

This is painful.... I think I might just let it play in the background and break out the fly tying desk...

We are getting de-pantsed by Duke at home in a nightgame.

Where are the Fuente supporters now????

This guy is a hack and a joke...you could give him Alabama's roster and he'd be running jet-sweeps into nowhere and eeking out 1-2 field goals a half.

So pathetic. Offensive line still terrible and Willis looking as shitty as ever. All to go along with terrible coaching.

Hope everyone leaves at halftime, and Whit has the balls to fire Fuente.

LOL, seriously that's all I can do is laugh. That 2nd quarter was comically bad.

Justin is a stupid fuck of a coach.

Boosters outside of Fuente's place tomorrow morning

This is gonna be an epic comeback.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

I would love a comeback!

If I could bet $10 on the comeback I would do it! The odds would be so high I could retire if they actually did it...

It is mind boggling how awful our offense is. Fuente is not the offensive genius he was advertised to be. Very frustrating.

'Member when opposing teams feared coming into Lane Stadium for a night game on ESPN?

They haven't feared coming to Lane since Tyrod.

On the bright, I didn't waste 4 hours of my Saturday for this shit.

If this team was a student they'd have gotten "unsatisfactory progress towards a degree" and been kicked out of school.

If these coaches were employees at most other types of companies, they would have been fired at the end of last season.

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

I can live with mistakes if we are building toward something. It is not readily apparent what the target is.

This is what really gets me. I understand that VT doesn't have the money to fire Fuente nor the clout to pull a big name coach in the off season. But this staff just hasn't demonstrated any kind of progress in any way over the 4 years they've been in Blacksburg. We really need to move in a new direction sooner than later because the longer we flounder with no discernable plan or identity the harder it'll be to turn it around and get back to competing in the ACC.

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

,,,over the 4 years they've been in Blacksburg.

Has it only been 4 years? Feels like an eternity.

I repeat, will the CornFu supporters please stand up.

"It's a miracle in Blacksburg, TYROD DID IT MIKEY, TYROD DID IT!"

The season's on the line in the 2nd half. I'm hoping Fuente and Foster are lighting into the guys in the locker room right now. Halftime adjustments and a quick start to the 3rd quarter. Get the crowd back on your side and ride the Lane atmosphere thru the 2nd half. We can still do this.

Are the students even staying? Not sure I would after that

Firing up isn't gonna help at this point.

Its readily apparent that this coaching staff has no answers. The offensive staff due to total and utter ineptitude and the Defense due to piss-poor Recruiting and lack of depth.

Watching Dimukeje eat up our OL is depressing while we have undersized DE who haven't gotten within 10 ft of Harris.

A leopard cannot change his spots. This team either sucks or is mediocre... take your pick. But this season is over.

I am concerned that Fuente needs to do more than just hire Kill. He may need to let go of a few assistants. Not understanding why the coaches put Hooker and Patterson in when they did unless Willis was hurt. Even then it's the coaches fault for not developing the two guys behind Willis so that they are game ready. I will concede the team is young, but the players are playing undisciplined and don't look prepared.

If Fuente doesn't make staff adjustments after this year, the writing is on the wall. He's going to sink with his ship.

Yeah, I'm not sure what that was all about.

I don't mind putting Hooker in, for a series, but that turnover killed our momentum, and then the team sort of fell apart like "It's happening again!"

Up until that point, everything seemed to be going according to plan.

Its called throwing darts at the wall.

It's what you do when you have no strategy because you are clueless.

Even I know it's a running play when Patterson or Hooker is put in the game. These players, if being coached and developed, should know the play book enough to throw the football.

Problem with our offense is that you can guarantee 2/3 plays will be useless which means the other play needs to be more than 10 yards. Sometimes it happens but never lore than like twice on a drive

Have ya SEEN the defense?

I'm not sure a mutiny is advised right now.

Bud's got his hands full getting the defense squared away.

Pretty sure the fumble was on King, not Hooker. Hooker is the truth. Corny should be fired immediately for the jet sweep on the 4 yard line to boundary. Though, to be fair, after that horrible interception saved by the late hit, I wouldn't have been confident in Willis there either. So I guess Corny has a reprieve. We were so close to controlling that damn game. Regardless. Fugly.

via GIPHY

Good analysis.

I think that was on King, but was really the exchange. Bad break for Hooker, bad break for King, horrible break for the Hokies. Different game if that hadn't happened.

Now we're in desperation territory, which we really did not need.

Start the discussion then. What in that half was worth talking about?

The start of the game was pretty good.

Two long drives, three and outs on Duke, controlled field position.

The start on defense was great. the playcalling for the first two drives though still seemed quite inept.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

You must be watching the Duke game from 2017, not the complete shit the rest of us are watching tonight.

it's weird not even having hope for the future of this program

They ask you how you are and you just have to say that you're fine when you're not really fine.

Literally the only way Fuente can manage to maintain any semblance of fan support is if he fires Cornelson and hires another OC. He promised offense and hasn't delivered. Ultimately that's on him but he gets one fall guy (a mulligan, if you will) to try saving face. But if Cornelson isn't gone by January then I'm of the opinion that Whit should wipe the slate clean and bring in a completely new staff

Brian Kelly?

True, forgot about him

That has to be the worst half of VT football I've ever seen. The offense could not be more inept. They had a whole extra week to prepare for this game and this is the result. The play calling is horrific, execution is crap, and what in the hell are we are doing with the revolving QB door? Get your head out of your ass Fuente!

Queue up another jet sweep!

Where's the beef?

QUICK TURNOVER HERE BOYS!!!

I'll take a turnover of the offensive staff.

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

We can't press the receivers because they will throw right over our heads, so we play off and they throw short passes underneath all day.

Must be nice to have a QB that can throw more than one throw

If you gave Cutcliffe our Roster, we would be a top-30 offense. That guy has forgot more in the last week about offense than Cornelson has ever known.

This is a classic case of Professional vs. Dunce Cap....I'll leave you to guess who is who.

For years, many of us hoped to have him as Beamer's OC. Or the Fridge.

But, honestly, I'd take Stiney over Corny. Yeah.

I'm fully willing to bet if they had an "OC for a Half" Raffle at Lane, the winner could at least do as well.

Our players could most likely be more effective calling their own plays. He is absolutely useless.

We don't love dem Hoos.

We've made 0 offensive adjustments. The coaches are unable to do so.

This is the Crap that drives me absolutely CRAZY.

DOWN 18 points in 3rd quarter....running the GD play clock down to 3 secs before every play.

HAVE SOME TEMPO. PLAY WITH SOME URGENCY.

SERIOUSLY, HOW GD STUPID IS CORNELSON?????

Yeah man. ... I've passed the point of anger now. Just watching, dejected.

D is down. Although they got the stop thre was no celebrating or congratulating each other.

for as bad as the O is and people calling for Fuente's head, the D has been atrocious since last year. Nobody wants to hear about youth on Offense (especially the OL) so then what's your excuse for the defense?? Nobody wants to call out foster or wiles or anything.

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

117 yards total offense. Wow they are smokin it

3 yards/carry does not make a first down. Do something else. Anything else that will work.

Going with we don't win more than 1 more game this season. Complete dumpster fire.

what I'm scared about is what if it's not the play calling?

I don't think play calling is the biggest issue. What I'm really concerned with is the complete lack of progress made by the offense in 4 years. On day one the coaches came in saying they wanted to get the running game going. It hasnt improved at all. The player development seems non existent. Nothing about this team shows any sort of progress towards some goal. There is no identity. No direction. I don't care how good or bad the calls are. The lack of development is a major concern. Worrying about play calling is missing the forest for the trees

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

Yea I'm less worried about the play calling and more about how our team is always, ALWAYS, the less prepared team on the field

Well lemme tell ya it's not the play calling. The talent level just is not there

I've come to terms with the team. What I dont get is why Vegas hasn't figured us out. How in the hell was the line at -2.5 for us?

I would say it was probably even on the game with the -2.5 going to home field advantage.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

I just cannot say enough about how amazing this Duke defense is; totally shutting down this high powered, fast paced offensive of ours.

Fuente just looks completely lost out there

Let's spot them 5 yards on 4th and 1 by running out of shotgun

Just dont understand. They have stopped the short runs consistently all night and when you are going for it on 4th down in your own end of the field you go with that? Even if they had pulled out the Ol Gator Jump Stop pass over the top it would have made some sense. That was just ugly.

I know the game is lost. Now I watch for entertainment purposes. How bad can VT look?

Dear Fuente: Pay attention to the game and the poor spot that was given to your team, throw the challenge flag for your team. You are standing on the sidelines with a blank stare and come across as absolutely clueless. Just give up and walk away.

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

Wow. I didn't think we would suddenly come out and look great. But honestly didn't think we would get curb stomped by Duke at home

This is sad. So sad.

This is the 3rd time in 4 games that I've shut it off before the fourth quarter. FUENTE HAS TO ROLL. He is obviously not a good coach. off a buy week and the offensive performance is pathetic. The defense starts off hot and the offense acts like they have a rudder. A few scores to start the game and Duke doesn't get hot like that. FUENTE HAS TO ROLL

I'm not normally a pitchfork and torch guy.

But, somebody has to go. This is broken.

Hate it but Fuente and his staff needs to go! I thought the 1973 and 74 teams were the worst ever. Well this one tops them. I feel for the players because they have no clue!

I think Bud has mailed it in at this point. And I don't blame him.

basketball season pls

One of these teams looks like a high school team. 10 years ago it would have been Duke. Now it's not

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

I swear to beelzebub, the headlines tomorrow better say Fuente and Cornelson are gone.

For fuck's sake we're making Duke look like they're on Clemson's level.

How does it not make sense to make a change?

We had every opportunity to put the clamps on these mf in the first quarter and couldn't.

I wonder what that '99 team is thinking right now.

What the heck is Fuente doing with the QBs? Is he going to play Knox as well?

One good thing about this game is that it should quiet down the Willis detractors. Hookers not ready. That's obvious.

Leonard. Duh.

Ah yes. One bad throw means you're not ready.

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

It's not just one bad throw.

Leonard. Duh.

Tell me more

Do tell?

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

Is that supposed to make things better???

Willis is a 5th yr Sr. who makes Fr. mistakes. HH is in his 3rd year in the program and has barely seen the field. And QP is an Elite 11 who hasn't made any threat of breaking into the QB1 conversation.

It's almost like our QB coaching is completely inept. Who's our QB coach again????? Oh yeah, that makes sense.

There is nothing to gain this year by playing him other than maybe one or two more wins. Let the young guys get experience and provide us with a glimmer of hope for the next couple years. It would be a different story if we were actually competing for anything.

Wow. Blown out at home in a night game at Lane against Duke!

This coaching staff is killing the program. I do think we have talent, but this coaching staff clearly cant put them in position to make a play.

Best example is the impotent offensive line play. You got five 300 lbers and they all just stand up and shuffle their feet down the line playing titty grab with the defense. You gotta fire off the football and mash someone.

Fuck this sucks.

I hope Whit sees that this is a problem that just won't magically fix itself over the next year. There is no spark (or even smolder) in Fuente.

Fuente even put in (Tony) Romo.

And I'm the asshole bc I say Cornelson never had experience. He sucks, and CJF is really disappointing he's willing to go down with that ship.

I can't even really get mad. I guess I would have to care first. Call me a fair weather fan I'm cool with that. This coaching staff has turned me against something I love. Oh Well Maybe Next Year.

I just tweeted Whit something similar, 3 years ago, I would have been livid. But now, this is what I expect

4th quarter belongs to the Hokies!

Let's go!!

Whit would be smart to go for a full reset after this year. Bud's and Wiles are leaving, recruiting is some ass, the fans are after Fuente and Cornelson.

We need something to turn around the momentum of this program. I don't care about the logistics of a 15m buyout, if Fuente stays we will be irrelevant for years to come. We've become apathetic enough we need some excitement.

It reminds me of the 2014 Miami game. That was really low point in franks later years

just increase enrollment and tuition again and stick more kids in lounges and hotels! /s

My birthday gift for my dad was a 9.5 hour drive and tickets to watch this team play Notre Dame. I'm such a dick.

Gobble Till You Wobble

Damn, why do you hate your dad so much

My brother, a UGA grad, texted me to say, "Why does Fuente always have that, 'Two airplanes just hit the Twin Towers, Mr. President' -look."

Facts

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

it's killing us at our defensive ends or not keeping containment allowing them to run outside

game after game

Duke OL pushing out DL back 5 yards on every play here.

I'd venture to say this team knows this game is done

I never thought I'd be pining for Duke's coaches. Yet, here we are

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

VT vs. GT....battle for the ACC Basement.

We can't just can't tackle, we can't catch.

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

Hunter running like burnt molasses on defense there

White pants were a bad idea...

Where's the beef?

Should've worn our brown pants to at least cover what we're doing on the field

This guy gets it!

Where's the beef?

The bye week is more hurtful to us than help. UVA is probably licking their lips at this year's game. Looks like we are not going to be much of a competitor to them, sad to say

Welcome to the cellar of the ACC Hokie fans.

Have some hope.....we might beat GT. We have a chance not to be the very worst team.

Just the worst Recruting one....

Let's not pretend Bud doesn't deserve some of the blame. We have been trash in defense for the past year and a half.

He and Wiles certainly deserve some blame for terrible DL recruiting. The lack of depth and size there is glaringly bad. Duke's DL outclasses us by yards.

But Fuente bears lots of blame for pissing off Torrian Gray and hiring Mitchell who has been an absolute Zero as a secondary coach.

In fairness to Bud he was promised that he wouldn't have to field a perfect defense any more. After 2 decades of incredible defense he deserves a few years of grace. At least it looks improved from last season. Can't say that about the offense

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

What's your next move, Whit?

I've been @ing Whit a lot tonight

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

They're just so much better coached. This is a good Duke team. Y'all are right though we aren't doing shit this year.

That was the same narrative after the BC loss, until they got smashed by Kansas.

Let's be honest...we are a really, really bad football team. With a HC that has ZERO answers.

To be fair I never thought BC was good at all. Blaming everything on Fuente isn't fair but we definitely need an offensive overhaul

I'm happy that I won't be in Virginia in November....

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

I am miserable.

This is just a really bad team...

I've never been more apathetic watching a Tech game in my life. If you watched the ODU & Furman game you knew this was coming. This team just fucking sucks. Fuente is singlehandedly crippling this program for the foreseeable future

Lol your profile pic

I've won 2 National Championships with them in NCAA 13..Wish they had an all black look on there..

This just isn't a scenario where Fuente isn't meeting expectations; he is literally flunking his job.

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

The catastrophic breakdowns on D continue.

Offenses have figured out how to make the reads required in Bud's D too difficult to be consistent.

I will donate to a statue for Bud, but I'm ready for change on D as well.

Evidently, the most interesting thing at tonight's game are our Trombone players

Now I'm starting to question why Willis is still in there. Down 28 with 12 minutes left is a great time to get the backup some reps.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

Hahahaha. Gonna be a looooong season boys!

Where's the beef?

Nope cause I'm checking out

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

I hope we never play a primetime game while Fuente is in charge. I am tired of being embarrassed on the national stage.

I swear we only have like 5 fucking plays.
Run up the gut
Drag route
Screen
Draw
Turnover

VB born, class of '14

We only run the drag route when its 3rd and 5+ and we make sure to the route is always 2 yards short.

Fuck you Fuente.

Fuck you.

Shut up

Nah, i'm done with him. He hasn't done shit the past 4 years and has made a joke of our football program to the point where I seriously doubt we'll ever be able to reach the heights we did under Frank. He can fuck off for all I care.

Honestly, I don't blame Evans for leaving early anymore. This staff clearly can't develop QB talent and he must have known that

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

Jesus. Ryan Willis should never see the field again after that throw.

He literally has no upside at this point, this is as good as it will ever be...cross the body throw into the lap of a safety

Willis threw a pick, im shocked, this is my shocked face.

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

It is totally worth continuing to watch our freshman [5th year senior] QB make these rookie [5th year senior] mistakes. Fuente - get a clue.

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

Willis does a Willis.

Pull the plug

I'm fishing every sat the rest of the Fuentes regime. I can not watch anymore and I remember going to lane in the mid 70's and only 14,000 in the stands. This is just as bad. I love the players. This is not on them. Good luck and health the rest of the way.

Playing and coaching for jobs right now

When does our basketball season start. Time to stop supporting this shit show of a football program

Have you contemplated girls field hockey? Actually better than football!

When does our basketball season start

Wrestling season

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

Willie Taggart is vastly more competent than Justin Fuente.

Damn Duke that was ... hilarious at this point

Well qb2 was warmed up on the sideline looking like he may come in

My biggest concern is that there will be no accountability after this poor performance from our coaching staff. We can't make any major changes at the top because we are hamstrung by a crazy expensive buy out. I am also concerned that Kill was brought in to help some of these assistants coach. I believe the staff is in way over its head and you can't put lipstick on a pig.

At this point I think Fuente might want out too and might agree to a much lower buyout.

Damn Cutcliffe going a little over the top with the fake punt there

Going for the jugular lmao

"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

Just a reminder that we pay Shibest approximately $450k/year to coach our special teams

You mean the ST that doesn't understand you can make a fair catch (getting the ball at the 25) at the 2 instead of trying to run and getting tackled at the 14?

We put the K in Kwality

Another perfect example of how our head coach doesn't understand his responsibility as a head coach. Mind-boggling that he doesn't address that issue with his assistant coach. We see it week after week.

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

Wow, so classy Cutcliff.

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

Like I said...

More evidence of a poorly coached team.

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

So many people have left now even t-mobile now has service for me to comment

Hahaha, that's the first time I've smiled this game. Well done.

Using /s is for cowards.

and USC can have Whit; especially if he doesn't make any changes.

At halftime Fuente was interviewed and said we need to attack the edges (their shorter corners). Followed that up with 3 series of run up the middle and short passes.

WTF?

We put the K in Kwality

Duke just rubbing it in now...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Fuck you Duke and Fuck you David Cutcliffe. That is such a punk ass fucking move up 28 in the 4th quarter.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

They're practicing trick plays for games that really matter.

We are now officially a cupcake

Haha forreal? Nah man, that's a man's move. I love it. Only time I've clapped tonight

#38-0

Sorry that was Busch league by Cutcliffe.

If I was CJF I wouldn't even meet him and shake his hand at the end of the game, fuck that dude. I used to have respect for Cuntcliffe but not anymore.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

I like the coach. I thought and still think he can be successful. But Justin has that "I'm fired" look on his face, and he might be right

Not even mad. I think it took this shit to put football in the proper perspective in my life's priorities lol. Not mad, just don't even care that much.

I'll keep cheering and have no plans to trash anyone over it. Just have no expectations and I'm not scheduling my fall around football anymore.

This is me...I just refuse to get emotionally invested in this shit show again until I have a reason to.

Fuente apparently gets paid a lot of money to stand motionless and speechless on the sidelines. What a pathetic appearance.
