I'll be a at bar with lots of wings and beer to distract me from the product I'll be watching on the TVs.

Fail. The responsibility of the first poster in this thread is to start it with a "LETS GO!". Sigh, we are doomed to lose now.

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

We're actually 2-0 when it's started with "let's go" and 0-2 when it hasn't. Just sayin

⬆️ Facts

Yep, that's why we are now doomed to lose.

I'm ready for Hooker. I'm ready for Bud to blitz again. I'm ready for these coaches and players to play without fear. You have nothing to lose at this point guys leave it all out there.

Thank you!

Dropping eight and letting a qb have all the time in the world does not work

Being a Tech football fan right now:

Watching the Purdue-Penn State game (Mrs MattBoard is a Nittany Lion) and I saw something that disturbed me.

The Purdue ad featured... a horse on a treadmill.

College football has taken everything from us. Please, Hokies, we need something in Miami today.

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

I can't remember where I read it, but it was spot on... This team appears to be playing "tight" and "scared". I don't think Fuente and Co. have done a particularly good job at allowing these kids to play loose and have fun out there on the field. I hope that changes and we get to see these kids find some joy and excitement on the field today!

Is it basketball season yet?

Please, for the love of God, don't let Trevon Hill go ham and have a career day against us.

Just win pls

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Damn

Here we go.

That ESPN intro was HORRIBLE.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Excited to finally see what we have in Hooker. Good or bad, it's about damn time.

Lol at ESPN trying to make it sound like a good thing Miami's stadium is an hour from campus

Here lies It's a Stroman Jersey I Swear, surpassed in life by no one because he intercepted it.

Everyone hold on tight. It's going to be an exciting ride.

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

DBUUUU

Ok waller!

Is it just my feed or does espns audio sound weird?

VB born, class of '14

Sounds hollow right?

I think it's the crowd πŸ˜‚

Lol I was gonna say that a few minutes ago but I was like... Imma wait and see if they ramp it up when we're on offense. Nope!

It's football guys!

Looks like that 1st half Louisville offense vs ND we talked about a while ago!

Is King hurt?

No he fumbles to much

/s

We can't expect King to have 20 carries a game if we want him around the entire season (and next). Might as well start McClease to keep him engaged and give King his 10-15 touches throughout the game.

The future is now! Go Hooker!

That is one fast Hooker.

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

Touch down tech!!

Hooker!!!! Guys are playing fast and swarming for the first time in a long time. Let's f*ckin go!

A good start. The running dimension that HH is providing right now is something we haven't seen all year.

Hope he can show something in the passing game besides the WR screen.

There was a window for him to hit Hazelton on that pass and he missed badly so I hope that was nerves.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

That was huge...hope is creeping back into my heart

LET'S GO HOOKER!!! This is why he should've been starting after BC

FACT: With HOOKER, WE HAVE A RUN GAME!!

#RESPECTTHEQBRUN

Let's Go

HOKIES

Hooker for president 2020!

Now for the offense to be consistent, posession after possession and let the D rest.

Im hopeful that Hooker can continue to shine.

That hooker has nice legs!

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

As long as the LB's are bailing Hooker can do that all day. They'll pack the box sooner than later though and we'll have to throw it downfield. Until they do though I say run Hooker run.

Using /s is for cowards.

Hooker looks fast...GO HOKIES!!!

I was prepared for disappointment. I wasn't prepared to have my hopes restored.

Don't you toy with me, Hokies.

Same.... same

VTFC/FRS

Gonna have to open up the pass a little bit to have longevity in this game on offense, but this is one heck of a start.

Exited to see what the next few drives hold.

HOOKER SZN

Farley has looked much better tackling this year.

Everybody keep doing your jobs, and VT will have a good day.

Hey, can we borrow that chain thing since UUUUUUU don't need it?

Don't get sucked in, don't get sucked in, don't get sucked in...

You're gonna get sucked in! Just let it happen.

Just go with it.

Never know how many of these you will get this year.

Just let it happen.

ahh, ahh, Ahh, AHHHHH, FUCK IT, LET'S GOOOOOOO!!!!!

Not sure who is on the field in the white jerseys because this is certainly not the team that we saw last week.

Thank God.

Now lets see what Hooker can do with a long field.

Turnover chain what?

It's so getto

Isn't that Miami in a nutshell?

Hooker does need to settle his past game down a bit. Then things will be even better!

Dangerous throw by Hooker there 🀐

VB born, class of '14

I think that Miami should let Bud Foster wear the turnover chain.

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

Who are these guys and where have they been?

I'm just here to sling some legs

Well they are letting Hooker air it out.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Great punt, ...but the 3 and out is not good.

QB has to at least give the WR a chance instead of airmailing it 5 yards out of bounds.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Yikes. Hooker's passes across the line of scrimmage have left a lot to be desired.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Well, when it's only the third or four time throwing downfield that's probably going to be be the case.

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

Hooker's accuracy hasn't been perfect but I'm loving his decision making

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

I think we are seeing why Fuente was so reluctant to pull Willis. HH does not have any accuracy throwing downfield. I hope he gets it figured out. We'll only be able to run screens so much.

And to be clear, I'm not knocking him. Our O has been much more effective with his running.

I'm looking to see if it improves in the second half. Could very easily be first start jitters.

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

The pass game with Hooker will get better. I'm sure he's still got a ton of nerves for his first start. We have seen him sling it a little bit in spring games.

I think he will. But I am still a little concerned about how many yards our defense is giving up.

Tisdale sighting.

DBUUUU X 33333333

3rd and long - gotta get the stop here.

Ball hawking! I love it boys!

LETS GOOOOOOO LPD!!!!

Alright give us the chain I guess

We don't want it.

We have a lunch pail.

We haven't had crap for turnovers and we get 3 in ONE quarter!?!?

Third pick!

DBU BITCH πŸ’₯

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

We have as many takeaways in this quarter than we have had all year!

WHAT IS HAPPENING??

I love it!!

Oh LAWD can't stop laughing!

But I like it a lot! Go Hokies!

Keene!

Three!!

LET'S GOOOO HOOKER. WAY TO STAY IN & TAKE THE HIT!!

I really can't believe this...this is great

Different team!

FULLY.
DIPPED.

VB born, class of '14

Hooker!!! Best I've seen tech look in two years. Unreal.

Unfortunately, it didn't take much to surpass the last two years.

The offense with Hooker looks so much better. The misdirection actually worked!

LETS GOOOO!!! It's happening!!!

Go Hokies!!! 3 INT and 2 Scores?!?! Wow

I'm just here to sling some legs

Williams has thrown 6 passes and we've caught 3 of them.

VT BSEE '98, VT MSME '01

I think HH has thrown 6 passes, too. And we've caught of them too!

That was a really nice pass by HH!

Hooker SZN is off to a great start.

Why the fuck didn't Fuente start Hooker earlier?

Why the fuck are you complaining right now?

Gift horse, don't look into mouth.

Because we should be 4-0. But I am excited about this new momentum.

Also, defense showed up today.

I'm going to choose to accept all of it.

Stunned silence in Miami.

I like it.

Those 22 fans have really quieted down since the start of this game

Who is this team & how the hell did they lose by 35 to DUKE. Talk about a stark contrast from last week. Wow.

Looks like we are about to see perry

Hooker pls

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Well color me burnt orange and Chicago maroon surprised!! I'll take it!

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

Are they gonna put Tathan in?

Feel sorry for the nerds who decided to not watch this game

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

Any chance Miami puts Martell in at QB? I'd love to see our D sack his ass.

Edit: guess not

Umm ESPN why aren't you showing us that replay!! Looked out.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

It's a fumble!!!!!

FUMBLE U X 1

Miami switches quarterbacks.

Wow.

Can we get a replay????

4 TURNOVERS. WHAT IT DO BABBBYYYYYY

oh wait Tathan is 3rd string?

BUD FOSTER HAS ENTERED THE CHAT

Best comment of the thread thus far

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

Another turnover!

And its reviewed - should be our ball.

Holy shit. Turnover chain wut

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Don't want it.

I like the lunch pail.

How about we take their chain and bury it somewhere on campus?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I think we should just Miami keep it in their safe.

... and then can we bury their safe?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

HOLY SHIT

ridiculous that they ever blew that dead.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Clearly didn't get the NFL memo of letting everything play out.

Sigh. Immediate whiff by an O lineman sighting.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I don't know if these are the real Hokies out here or not, but they're welcome to hang around as long as they want!

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I knew that lunch pail was sitting around somewhere

And I thought Willis was an aggressive runner. Go Hooker!

This really does feel like a good game of Beamer Ball

Really nice to see another team besides us imploding.

Hooker is so damn athletic. Really wish we had mad the switch a lot sooner

Wow,

That Hooker running dimension is pretty sweet.

WOW......who is this team that we're watching.....I LOVE IT!!!!

Touchdown Tech!!

Half the distance. From the two.

I'll take it.

Oh look a jet sweep scored a TD.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

I hate that sweep by Mitchell cause they use it too much in the red zone but hell it worked!

Agree, he should have been tackled at the 4 for a loss.

Basically all college football games are decided on blown assignments or missed tackles. Making one person miss to score should be possible sometimes, we've just been really bad at it recently.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

RIP Ryan Willis' playing time

Wow. This was a fun quarter to watch.

There was a Fuente celebrating (sort of) sighting.

You missed him celebrating with Hooker after his rushing TD?

Two personal fouls on the U and none are from Trevon Hill? Didn't see that coming

That last run by Hooker was Vick-esque. Holy crap guys. I'm floored. So proud of this team right now.

I would have laughed in your face if you told me we'd be up 21-0 in the 1st Q but I am having a wonderful time

What the fuck is going on?!?! This is not a drill!!!!

Touchdown Tech!!!

is Corny not calling plays? is Fuente calling plays? Is Miami just plain bad? actually I don't care, I'm finally enjoying football season

All good questions

The canes are tackling like we have been. I'll take it, though.

Can we please get some shots of Trevon Hills face?

I have so many questions right now. So many.

Bud Fucking Foster

Conner is showing DBU

Good god, Conner!

Defense has shown up to play today.

Alright that 3 and out is a little bit of a regression by the D but I'm sure they'll bounce back. /s

Using /s is for cowards.

Running QBs are a staple at VT, we should never stray from that formula.

Tackling, turnovers, scoring? We Bak? Lol

Ask me after the game.

I'm only able to follow on line. Who's winning TOP?

VT: 6:32
Miami: 7:37

For those interested. TOP for the 1st half:
VT - 18:01
Miami - 11:52

Tackling looks better, but still a little suspect.

Look at that defender mouthing off at Hooker.

Probably not the first time he's mouthed off to a hooker.

Showing their frustration, let it rain!

Still, we have a weak Oline.... ugh

OK who is this team in white and what have they done with the virginia tech hokies?

* in previous weeks...

We should be thanking whoever took the Virginia Tech Hokies for giving them back!

I bet we see Williams back in later.

Hopefully still losing by 21!

Who is this running back, "McClease"?

I'm just here to sling some legs

McClease can run when he gets up to speed.

I was ready to get sad drunk at the bar after work today but now it's gonna be happy drunk. LET'S GO!

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

I am no expert but can't help but notice th possibility that this offense doesn't work without a threat like Hooker.

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

Could be true, even if Willis is the better passer.

There is something to be said there.

Maybe it's just the camera angles we're getting today, but Fuente looks really fired up and animated on the sidelines from the few shots I've seen of him today.

A lot more to be animated and fired up about today.

It's like that at my house, too.

I guess knowing that you are hanging on by a thread makes you throw everything to the wind and just let go.

Completely agree, he has all the passion!

Go King!

...What do we have to do to get Trevon Hill mic'd up for halftime?

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

Has he even played yet? I've been too busy watching our team run the ball down their throat

This running game !!!

RUN A REVERSE!

Man if we keep this up our Hooker is going to wear down that Miami D...

Using /s is for cowards.

Hill just gpt punked on that third down play. Love it.

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

I enjoyed Keene doing that a lot

I think with HH our offense is going to look a lot like TT's freshman year.

so splitting time with a white guy QB? ;)

Trevon Hill and limping off the field. Name a more iconic duo

T Hill looking desparate.

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

Trevon Hill for giftory consideration

Travon Hill is faking BIG TIME!

Lol I'm not sure T Hill didn't flop offsides

Using /s is for cowards.

Hill knows damn well why he was dismissed.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Oh man, I laughed so hard at that. He absolutely knows.

Huh....12 players on the field and offsides by hill, where is the penalty?

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Looks like they ruled a retrospective injury time out.

He wasnt offsides but they called it dead for an "injury". Abuse of the rule right there but we're STOMPING them

Those Hokies who made the effort to be there today deserve this game.

It's not so often that you get beat by a Hooker!

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

Hooker is going ham in Miami.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

This is the Hokie offense we've been looking and waiting for. Im glad ourr had arrived

So why wasnt Hooker starting earlier?

That's the $15 million dollar question.

Hendon Hooker is the truth ladies and gents. I will gladly eat whatever crow you put on my plate. This team has responded in a loud and clear way. Proud we are showing some Hokie pride.

TEU

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

Losing to Furman 14-3 at home at halftime. Lose by 35 to Duke at home. Lead 28-0 in Miami in the early 2nd quarter.

One of these does not belong.

I would say none of those things truly belong...

I love you all!

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

I'm feeling the Hokie love today.

Yo, so Hooker is really looking like the real deal.

It does raise the question that we quite clearly function better when the QB is a run threat, but how the hell did we go this long without using one?

Nothing wrong with a simple short pass game to go along with a legit running threat.

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

I'm absolutely loving this. But it begs the question... why was Fuente so reluctant to play Hooker. It seems the team has really rallied behind him & he fits our style of offense SO much better. Why did it take this long? Props to Fuente for finally making the switch but would've much rather seen this against Furman/ODU and maybe last week doesn't happen.

When Fuente's offense is clicking, it's just a thing of beauty. Run to score, throw to win. Let's keep it up.

In Sam Rogers we trust.

I'm too happy about this game right now to even stop and think about how mad I am it took this long for Hooker to play

Gobble Till You Wobble

Personally, I think they were "beholden" to Willis after they lost JJ because he didn't automatically get his spot back.

Wow, 28 in the first half, this is good.

Seems to me that Fuente's offense CAN work, after all.

just needs a running qb

Sure looks that way.

The running threat might just be more important than the passing threat.

Thank goodness the portal didn't take Hooker away
edit: And McClease too

Keene is getting his Chris Cunningham on today.

Using /s is for cowards.

Hooker making Cornelson look like a genius.

Deleting to undo my apparent jinx of the defense

I'm just here to sling some legs

Uh, wut?

Edit - whatever you did worked to unjinx it.

I commented on how well the defense was playing. Suddenly Miami was first and goal from the 3. Deleted my comment and the Hokies held (INT by Farley in the end zone). The delete worked!

I'm just here to sling some legs

This didn't age well.

Edit: OK, I stand corrected. Leg for whatever you did to your comment, because it worked.

FARLEY!

Williams looking like he might be coming back on the field at some point.

Why was he wide open?

And then there is blown coverqge

Let's keep them out of the end zone...

Hopefully we can hold them to a FG attempt.

I prefer zero points!

My thought is that Cornelson doesnt imagine his offense as being predicated on having a true running threat QB, just a QB that's mobile enough and has the arm strength

But I think Hooker is proving this wrong. He is showing how much the running ability can negate the lack of arm strength and ability to throw in the middle of the field that's required of a Cornelson offense

Who just barfed on the field lol

Pretty sure it was #34. So I guess Tisdale according to the roster

Did anyone else see someone on D throwing up?!

Yup. I thought I saw that too

DBUUUU X 44444444

Did someone on D just blow chunks on the field?

Did Tisdale just vomit?

I'm just here to sling some legs

Yeah it was Tisdale according to David Teel on twitter

Did tisdale just puke on the field before 3rd down??

Warning- Filter lost.

"Look at this... This is just spectacular.... These people are losing their minds"

FREE THE "STICK IT IN" CHANT!!!

Something definitely exorcised itself there

Yeah, that was worrying. I think it was him

Farley's coming alive wow

hahahahahahhahhahahhaa GO HOKIES!

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

Wow!

LET'S GO!!!!!!!!

I'm just here to sling some legs

HOKKKIEEEEESSSSSSSSS

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

Incredible

DBU baby

Farley and Waller having themselves HUGE days

Floyd played great on the goal line stand, too

Back to back great coverages on Brevin jordan

So, will Farley or Hooker get to wear 25 next week?

Technically both could!

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

LET'S GO FARLEY!!!!

Also, don't know if anyone picked up on it live, but if you have the chance go back & watch Keene's celebration after that last TD. He did the bow celebration that Hill always did after he made a big play for VT & this comes after he already pancaked Hill a few minutes ago. Pretty clear the guys don't love Trevon

Upset UVA fans is hilarious but pissed off Miami fans is a damn close second πŸ˜‚

Woooooooooooooooooo Ddddddddddddddd Bbbbbbbbbbbbbb Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

The old Puke and Pick lmaooooo

Touchdown Tech!!!

Seriously, what was that?

Plaid comment hall of fame

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

Leave it to Bud to design some crazy ass plays on his last year

I'm just here to sling some legs

I guess we won't be 128 in turn over margin after this game!

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

Let's get back to that barf though...

I'll allow it gif.

HOLY F*#@ING SHIT!!!!!!!

Where the hell has this defense been?!

We have an exciting dual threat QB, and we have an opportunistic defense that is playing lights out. God I love it. Vintage.

Somebody get video of our defender projectile vomiting then going straight into the play like nothing happened

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

I don't know this feeling

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

Can we put the lunch pail on a chain at halftime and break that out for the 2nd half?

Don't change anything.

You really don't like messing with the lunch pail, do you!

Right now I mostly wanna see Tate Martell come in and turn it over twice........

We are on track to go from -8 turnovers on the season to +2 in one game.

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

Lololol first down on the offsides

VB born, class of '14

Why do we try and run inside when the offensive line cannot open a blasted hole!

I think this is setting something up for later

Bingo

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

That's one way to play zone defense...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Despite the public comments, looks to me like Fuente has his hands in the Offense more so than prior.

It's clear that there is more there than we've seen up until now.

Or he told Kill to look at what worked at Memphis and do more of that.

Wow, that's going to be a first down now.

I like when Miami gives us first downs on penalties.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

I think I'm out...but then here they come...dragging me right back in. I LOVE IT.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Best we've played all year and I'm at a wedding.

Well you better find a lot more weddings to attend this fall.

Um, yeah, we're gonna need you to schedule a wedding every Saturday for the rest of the season. Jus' say'in.

Gotta be at one for Norte Dame as well. Hell if this is the result I'll start crashing weddings. Now I'm getting the evil eye from my wife for posting during the ceremony. Sacrifice has to be made.

THREE personal fouls and none on Trevon Hill, Really didn't see that one coming.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

I would love some more points; however, a well executed scoreless drive until 0:00 would be fine in this situation as well.

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

Way to hold on to the football Hooker.

Yeah, he got drilled

No return on this punt pleaseeeee

These ESPN guys are awful. They run replays and don't even know where the players they want to highlight line up. They point to wrong players. Not to mention their clear Miami bias.

Your comment seems like you're surprised. This is nothing new for our games

This is on the mothership main channel at least expected them to have done research and have decent replay guys.

Yea that TD call shows the clear Miami bias. Fucking homer announcers.

β€œTHE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

10 sec runoff?

So the ref falls down so they don't have to run the play. Like a free timeout.

Edit: I stand corrected.

They spiked the ball on the 3rd down.

Ah, OK. Thanks.

I didn't catch that.

What a fluke score....but if those fools want to break out that gaudy jewelry down 3 scores let them.

WOW

Crap

Bullshit catch in the end zone.

We're not out of this yet. Gotta continue to be aggressive.

Of fucking course

Justin to me seems like a guy I'd like to have a few beers with and get him all riled up and pissed off about VT football. I think it's in him but he just can't break through.

...dammit

That was some bullshit. You have to be in front of the receiver on a hail mary.

That last score was disappointing. We get the ball to start the 2nd half. We'll need to get a good drive out of halftime.

Man, so good to have unbiased announcers...

When hasn't ESPN slobbered all over Miami's knob?

Jesus could the ESPN guys be more hype about a team down 21 at the half?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

My wife just came out and said "is it normal for the announcers to be rooting for one team?"

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

i wasn't comfortable being up 28 at half. nowhere near comfortable being up only 21.

Jesus, you weren't gonna feel good about a team that was supposed to lose by two scores potentially being up by four scores at half? What did you need to be cozy, the Russian's to nuke the Hard Rock Stadium off the face of the earth so there would be a stalemate? Give the boys some credit.

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

...aaaand this is why i wasn't comfortable being up only 21 at half.

Not ideal end to the half, but I'll take everything that the first half had to offer.

No biggie. That'll be the one highlight for the Canes from this game. Just go out and score on that first drive Hokies

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

Let's Go!!!

Hokies!!!

Hokies!

HOKIES

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

Lmao celebrating like they won a fucking Super Bowl down 28-7

Miami's reaction is as if they are up 28-7.....it's the reason I am not worried about the comeback....

This is why it is so easy to hate them

Crappy way to end an amazing half. I would have died if we picked that Hail Mary for our 5th pick and 6th TO forced of the game

Totally different Vibe from the coaching staff and it started in warmups. Coaches were hype jumping around and just seemed more lively. It carried onto the field and Here We Go (Joker Style) Amazing to see these kids vibe with confidence and just play into the hype.

FINISH IT

Thanks for posting this... awesome to hear!

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

Also, did anyone see on the punt return before the last series where the Miami player took not one, but two swings & connected with a shot to Quillen's helmet? Isn't that supposed to be an immediate ejection? Is that something they can review at halftime?

I saw, you saw, the official saw...and yet nothing was called.

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

Has anyone put out a APB for the VT football team? I'm not recognizing what's on the field. But in all seriousness, I love it. Hooker is making this offense run

He's running this offense

On offense, he's running

Theme of the second half should be, to quote Ryan Willis, "scared money don't make money".

There's more to getting approved by the NCAA than a good cause (reason), and apparently we did not pay.

I'm sorry, but it's time for VT to take the NCAA to court. I don't care if it downs our football program. I'm over corporate America

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

Out of town and no TV. Just checked CBS sports WTF is going on!!

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

As someone at home watching the game, I'm still not sure. This certainly doesn't look like the same Hokie team from the past few weeks!

Miami got a bullshit Hail Mary.

Should be 28-0

But it did work.... :-(

The U is back.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

How was the first half 2+ hours?

EDIT: I'm an idiot.

Hokies offensive stats not spectacular, but when you are winning the turnover margin, ball control works pretty well. Smart and steady.

Not to mention they didn't have far to go for 3 of those TD's

Score when I was out to lunch with my family 28-0, score when I started watching after getting home 0-7.

Danny is always open
23 can't read

time for second lunch fam

I was just sitting here wondering who to blame...

Has anyone seen Willis on the sidelines? I haven't spotted him in any of the sideline shots.

Yes, they showed him once or twice.

Right at the beginning was watching play call and reading his wrist band.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Ok cool I just didn't see him in any of the celebration shots and was wondering

Yes they showed him earlier in the game

Are you happy now!? Look what you did

I'm so sorry

I feel like this upcoming drive will tell is a lot about this team. I don't want to jinx it by breaking down what I mean by that, but it's hugely important.

Start the 2nd half with serious momentum... and drive and score

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Oh no. Willis time?

FUCK

Great.. Play QP at this point & just run it. Don't want Willis turning it over

you nailed the collective Hokie nation concern..

Just a cramp (I hope). Would be a good time for a Quincy sledgehammer run.

Hooker will be back out in a sec. Hakuna matata

"I don't know how many years on this earth I got left. I'm gonna get real weird with it." -Frank (Reynolds, that is)

We're barely throwing it as is, might as well run QP out there.

Hooker may be faster.

Cramp? Twisted ankle?

The problem isn't Willis, but since the BC game I have been on the Willis is not helping the situation train

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

Why do we run in the middle!?!?!

It was working first half

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

60 missed his block on that 3rd and 1.

We really couldn't bring QP in to run up the middle there?

Well, that was uninventive. Did Corn finally find directions to the stadium?

Denied!

Floyd is ballin today

Man our DB's are battling today.

Using /s is for cowards.

Why the hell was Belmar 25 yards down the field?

He was covering the TE (Brevin Jordan)

Did our 1st half team forget to come out for the 2nd?

Not the 3 man Rush, Bud.

Perry is awful unless you give him copius time.

"Good open field tackle on the play"

Something we haven't heard enough of this year. Glad to see it.

fuck

Diablo needs to be more aggressive - he waited for the receiver to come to him instead of going after him.

Need to get some momentum back

Proud of how we are playing

What's with the Miami-lovin' announcers?

We need to step on their throats and not give them life.

Ok Bud can't look at this film and see Dax and keep him in.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Why is he having such a down season from last year?

I just don't think he has the speed to play OLB. Needs to be at Mike.

I agree. We need Tisdale on the field (if he's not sick).

Well this half has not gone to plan

I would argue that last half was the one that didn't go to plan

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

the ship is waining....

We ain't bak?

Where's the beef?

Took us all of 5 minutes for that sorry defense we know and love to show it's ass again.

Well this looks familiar again.

This is where we see what this team is

We know what this team (INCLUDING COACHES) is and saw it last week, the week before and the two years prior. Expect a complete implosion and maybe even a 2 TD loss. I hope to eat those words.

Refs certainly helping them on that drive. Several uncalled holds & a questionable DPI. GREAT

And...

Miami is back in it.

The announcer seems to be loving it.

They're going to lose this game. Nothing gets a hot-seat coach fired faster than a loss when giving up a huge comeback. See Kevin Sumlin.

Get outta here with them negative waves.

Nah get that outta here.

I'll allow it. I don't buy the feel-good circle jerk going on right now. It kind of feels like a few holes have sprung in the dam. The last 4 drives have been runs up the gut into a stacked box. This is starting to look familiar.

Even with us winning the holes are evident. Good plays by Hooker and balls thrown straight to our secondary don't patch the issues even to my untrained eye. It is nice to be winning and playing hard though.

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

Floyd needs to cover #9 rather than biting on every fake.

That PI Farley was iffy. He made the right call to prevent the TD, but Osborn initiated the contact. I don't agree with the way the announcers described it.

And this is where our offense ineptitude comes back to haunt us +5 in turnover ratio and somehow in a ball game now

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

Yeah the offense is to blame for an 88 yard TD drive after dominating TOP and coming out of the half.

Seriously i know VT fans default to blame the offense after all these years but the defense can have a bad drive without it being the offense's fault. That was what happened.

Joffrey, Cersei, Ilyn Payne, the Hound, Jeff Jagodzinski, Paul Johnson, Pat Narduzzi.

We need to score to stop this momentum.

Prahduce?

Using /s is for cowards.

Fuck Miami.

We need a good drive by the Hokies.

Hooker needs to throw it.

Hooker needs to get the pass game going.

We are up 14, still got to have confidence. I know momentum is shifting, but let's get it back!!!

Travon Hill eats fake up. Clocks McClease.

That's the most celebration I've ever seen from a player on a false start penalty.

Clown.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

And the meltdown has begun.

Go suck an egg, Trevon!

Where's the beef?

I'm really hating Hill right now.

I truly hope VT wins this.

Have no idea what happens in our lockerroom at Halftime, but it needs to stop.

This is textbook how to give 100% of momentum back.

My 2019 Season Challenge: only comment with Star Wars memes.

If you see these characters, they represent specific people (as of Oct. 2):

Palpatine (Fuente) || Vader (Hooker) (probationary)

Are they really painting the picture that the guy who got kicked off the team for wishing injury on a disabled kid is the victim in this situation? Announcers love fest for Miami is getting annoying as hell

Their portrayal of him is super ignorant.

Also, it seems they want Miami to win, so fuck that

Lets go Hokies. We fucking got this. Fuck miami!!!!

No screen. No jet sweep. No run. We need to throw the ball. We won't be able to bleed the clock. 35 points may win this game.

Agreed. Let's get 42 just incase.

Throw the ball.

I don't care if you get a completion, but no interception, please.

Run game isn't working because they're keying on it.

We MUST make a stop, here

I swear once we got up 28-0, we started playing to not loose.

I'm OK with that pass attempt.

Fuck Hill.

Same here.

If Hooker could throw downfield, we'd have a very dynamic offense.

One stop baby!! We can win this game!!

Glad to see Miami still hurting themselves with penalties.

We don't seem to have an answer on D right now.

Need the defense to step it up in this series.

KEEP TISDALE IN THE FUCKING GAME

Defense set the tone in the first half, offense set it in the second half.

JK

Nice job by Ashby!

See told you. Meltdown.

How was hill taking out hookers legs not a penalty

Danny is always open
23 can't read

Thats a fucking back breaker

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?! THATS A BULLSHIT CALL!

3rd and 20 and you rough the passer.

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

He pushed Perry....that's a horrible call....

So was the miss on hill to hookers legs

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

That late hit was bs!

GET IT BACK D LETS FUCKING GO

What a BS call and these announcers suck ass!

What the duck, Hewitt??

Stupid move by Hewitt.... you can't put your hands on a QB

we're losing

Let's keep them in 3rd and long situations.

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

Are y'all listening to ESPN?.......Apparently Hewitt slammed Perry to the ground....smh

THEIR O LINE IS SWISS CHEESE. ONE STOP

Was that really all that late? I don't get it.

"Hit" as he let go of the ball & he barely even fucking touched him. Bullshit call & the announcers made it worse by endorsing the hell out of it. Fuck this

It was more acting than a hat, and the ref watched it all and GAVE it to him

It was certainly unnecessary!

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

It was the incredibly stupid push at the end.....identical to the one where Willis got away with what would have been an interception a few games ago.......D U M B

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Crazy spotting. It must be reviewed

The acc called the refs at halftime and forward them some Miami money

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

What is going on? He was like 1.5 to 2 yards short.

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

That wasn't close to a first down.

Checks must have cleared. Two yard spot. That wasn't a first down.

I feel like we always get shafted by terrible announcers but these guys really are a new low... what bozos. Calling out Hewitt with no mention of hills hit? I smell home cooking

Gokies

That was a horrendous spot, but I'm still stuck on our pick to their 5 getting called back by Hewitt. We were about to end this comeback dead in its tracks and now they have life.

Dallas just shoved the ref away from him. That's supposed to be an ejection?

Griffin needs to look for the ball....that should have been a INT....

Please stop them on this 3rd down.

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

Need a stop here on 3rd and 21.

Big stop. A little fight left

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

Great stop.

That was. a huge play, even if the announcers don't notice.

N'kosi Perry with a nice hand off to Manti Teos' girlfriend there

THIS TEAM IS PLAYING WITH HEART RIGHT NOW

Hell of a stand by the defense after that bullshit by the refs & all the momentum was going towards Miami. Love the fight & aggressiveness being shown by our guys!

Yeah, man, it was huge.

Offense needs to put together a drive, at least to give the d a breather

VB born, class of '14

A TD DRIVE HERE CAN END THEIR HOPE

Dear dear please not a successful fake punt

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Yeah we def need to score to cool this comeback off. We can't just try to wait them out.

Okay, need a drive for a td now.

Offense need to put it away here with a nice drive and score.

A score would quiet the crowd.

the 3 and Out game is back. Bad play calling has returned.

Corny calling plays again? So bland

Gokies

Great play calling Corny. 2 runs against a stacked box when we need to create a drive to get us to a predictable pass on 3rd and long. Love it

Hooker had plenty of time to throw, and an open receiver.

Offense..

I hope the coaches realize we will probably need to score again to win this game.

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

We cannot just try to drain the clock here...

Corny's going to try but at least Bud's still bringing pressure.

Using /s is for cowards.

Personally, I think we should run it up the gut more on 1st and 2nd down.

Why have we not tried this yet?!?

If we can, but we are having problems getting 1st down..

This the same third quarter shit we did on offense all last year. Three three and outs... it's like we want the defense to be worn out.

Miami's O-line is horrible lmao!

H_O_K_I_E_S-HOKIES!

Proud Member Of The Key Play Community Since January 2012.

If we score 0 points in the 4th quarter we have no shot at winning this game

Alternatively, we could probably win it with one score.

To be fair, neither does Miami.

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

ITS A WIN TO GET TO THE 4TH WITH A 14 POINT LEAD!!! D IS PLAYING THE BEST IT HAS ALL YEAR. ONE MORE STOP AND WE CAN WIN THIS GAME.

Deablo should be permanently benched for his effort on that punt return

Dramatic take... but he probably shouldn't wear 25 next week.

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

We really need to do some misdirection when we get the ball back.....use their aggression against them.....

Now usually I don't do this....leg to Newport....lol

One quarter to go. Come on tech.

D-line is picking it up on the last few plays. Nice sack to end the 3rd.

Well, we only gave up seven points in the 3rd quarter; therefore, at that pace, we should still win this one. (very) /s

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

Fuente out there high fiving "let's fucking go". Good to see

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

So did we change play callers at the half?

The only choking i see happening in this game is these ESPN announcers choking on Miami's dick. Hokies are showing a helluva lot of fight after what happened last week & all the momentum Miami has in the 2nd half. Keep it up for one more quarter Hokies!!

It's pretty annoying... it's like we've already lost

"What are you going to do, stab me? - Quote from Man Stabbed

I don't think Hooker has kept the ball on a running play this half.

Doesn't matter if it's cake or pie as long as it's chocolate.

Oh, the nail-biting of a Virginia Tech fan.

A feeling we all know.
