Any word on injury report?

Wake may be out a top WR.

He is wearing a boot so he is out.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

According to Bitter/Teel twitters, Bradburn is punting in warmups and doing nicely. Hooker is warming up well.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

So they claimed we would be able to watch the Bud tribute on ACCN.

They lied.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

OLD ENOUFH FOR KISSES

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Are we the worst kick return team in the country?

Is it basketball season yet?

Close

QP starting again today?

No hooker

What did you just call me!?

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Stuck looking at gamecast looks like they are coming out throwing. Thanks for nothing comcast!

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

Looking at gamecast too... I was hoping it was only because I'm out with the wife....smh

God we got ourselves a slippery hooker

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

2 4th down conversions....Fu is going for it today....

Love the time of this drive!

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

Honestly, I think hooker is proof that people can be gamers, and it's not a crazy idea to pull a struggling qb (a known) in favor of a younger inexperienced guy (unknown) to see how it might spark team chemistry

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Issues with handling the snap was one of the main reasons he was on the sideline, like we saw on that 1st & goal. The ball's on the ground multiple times almost every practice so the coaches felt safer going with Willis. It is what it is at this point & i'd much rather play hooker, but we just have to accept that's going to happen sometimes

Fucking snap issues

Good start......setting the tone....now let's punch it in....

This is one way to neutralize the Wake offense

Typed too soon.....

Amazing gameplan by the coaches. Long methodical drive with the chance to go up 7 while keeping WF off the field. And then Hooker does what he seems to do once or twice a game & fumbles the snap... taking us out of any chance we had at a TD... Still got a FG but damnit that would've been huge to get 7 after that drive.

That wasn't really Hookers fault, that was a pretty poor snap.

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

I know, that one was a little low, but he's had an issue with that all season & especially in practice. Just a very frustrating way to end a drive. Great gameplan by the coaches though

Wow really fooled them on that third-down.

Terrible playcall

3rd and goal from the 18. Not a lot of high percentage plays there.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Nice long drive there. If we can wear their D out and keep Newman off the field that is a win.

Gonna need 7 next time though

Should have gotten 7. WE chewed 9 min of clock!

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

Well already better last time...

Tough to settle for a FG, there but we shortened the half by 9 minutes which will help the D especially without Waller for the first half.

Time to see what Buds D can do.

Let's get after em.

Let's see if Bud has any tricks up his sleeve to get us a quick TO

I guess I'll watch this game Monday or Tuesday. I fuckin hate Comcast...

is it intentional or just coincidence they are playing AC/DC in the stadium after Brian Johnson splits the uprights?

Ring the Bell(mar)!

LETS GO BELMAR!!! LPDDDD

Huge sack by Belmar. 3 and out!

Those "not so special" teams showing up...

Is it basketball season yet?

Seems minor, but getting some yards on that return rather than going backwards would have been big for momentum.

Really need to figure out how to get some sort of positive return game going. It is been uniformly bad all season

Agreed. Not exactly sure why 6 cut back and left instead of going right where he seemed to be going at first.

We need to throw some double moves at the uber aggressive wake defense.

Where's the beef?

are. you. fucking. kidding. me.

he may as well take his pads off... Fuente isn't going to let him see the field again today.

Good. He needs to sit. Not a fan of the return game either.

Son of a bitch

Did Wheatley fall asleep on the play there?!

Out of all people.. why tf is wheatley the person we choose to run that play with?

DOGGONE IT WHEATLEY

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

That was just poor thinking by 24; no awareness.

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

Need the D to step up.

Perfect play call with that pop pass, god damn it with that fumble though.

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

Another big 3rd down.

Wheatley is done for the day

Welp, they had set the pop pass up for weeks. Totally squandered it.

Hopefully we'll score way more points; however, that was a 10 point swing.

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

I hate to bash on a kid, but hopefully that means someone else is returning kicks as well.

Is it basketball season yet?

It appears that we have a good game plan if our players can stop muffing it up

I thought Wheatley was supposed to be fast? He caught that in full stride & looked like he was jogging at half-speed. They caught up so quickly & he had absolutely no awareness. Damn it man that would've been such a big boost. Gotta run that with King, not Wheatley

What a great play call though. Wheatley fumbled because the defender got to him on the absolute negative of his arm swing. That was a great play call, great execution by hooker, and were at 0s at the bottom of the first. We look like the better tram and all of you should take that to the bank!

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

LOL! He's actually back in the game

Maybe we can get it at the 25.

I leave for 2 min we have the ball then wake is kicking a FG

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

Jesus just fall down! Now it's 3 & 4 and not 3rd & 1

Idk if it's being taught or what, but I feel like our receivers never cut up field, they always try to make a move & wind up gaining 0 or losing yards after the catch. Just make a cut & go

3 and out

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

Why do we turn back to the outside and give up 4 yards....damnit

Jesus christ... Hooker's gotta take some heat off that 3rd down pass. It's a slant you can't rifle one at someone's helmet

This is gunna be a long game.

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

Why? Because we had 1 three and out?

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

Because it's been super sloppy on both sides with a ton miscues and less then desirable play.

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

"Long game" is usually used to say we will lose badly and I hate my life. If that's not the case, touchΓ©, but the timing of your comment makes me believe otherwise. Go Hokies!

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

Yeah I have no idea what people are talking about except for the fumble play calling and execution have been great

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

I feel ya. It was in reference to the quality of play. I haven't a clue how this game is going to turn out!

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

So far the game plan has been excellent and the execution pretty good (minus a couple of plays). Should be a good game based on this first quarter.

Is it basketball season yet?

I'd be okay if they realized that there is more than one wideout. I'm getting tired of Hazelton already this game.

3rd and long. Another opportunity to get the D off the field.

Defense is doing their part. Wake is getting shut down on O. Offense needs to step up, should probably be 10-0 right now without our mistakes.

Offense also doing their job.

Burning clock, putting points on the board.

These are the things that kill me about Fuente...preaches ball security, yet has RB carrying the ball loose and low on the inside arm running down the field.

Doing the small things right and practicing them until they are instinctual (not just saying you want to) adds up...makes the difference between leading 10-0 and being tied 3-3...eventually might make the difference between winning and losing.

You mean Zohn?

Not sure if anyone aside from the the announcers and guys on the Two Deep podcast has said it yet... But Wake has the weirdest play action handoff I've ever seen.

These are the times I wish we still had Tim settle, so he could tackle both at the same time

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

WTH is Grimsley doing?!?!?!

good god

Wow... Our special teams is on the struggle bus.

Is it basketball season yet?

get away from that!!!

Shibest is so overpaid. We have one of the worst special teams units in the country aside from Bradburn.

Our special teams are gonna give me a fucking heart attack!

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

WTF is Grimsly doing

Mitchell with 1st down!

This offense is a well-oiled machine under Hooker this season.

Corny seems to be calling a great game so far.

Dang Mitchell had a lot of open grass there

Ugh how many targets did Mitchell (and Keane) get last week at ND? I like this short passing game a lot better than the deep passes to Tre and Damon we kept trying last week.

Did Tech offer that Wake DL from Roanoke?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

If Nester would block, the offense will be much better

Loving the aggressiveness from Fu today. Need a TD here!

Hooker to King for 1st down on 4th and 2!

I havnt seen this level of play calling in a good long while

Why does this kind of feel like the Georgia tech offense

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

Time of Possession. We are chewing a ton of clock on these drives.

winning TOP=W.I.N. Am I right?

The offense not pressing for the long bomb every play is a good thing. Use the short pass to weaken the D

I think that's being dictated by the soft coverage that wake is playing. We've taken advantage of it though.

Wonder what would have happened if king was eligible last year against ND. Probably would have gotten to the final four.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Gotta finish these drives.

Hooker needs tight on these passes, trying to force the ball. He needs to relax .

Hooker.. what the fuck was that? We need Touchdowns god damnit

If I took a drink every time they said "boogie basham", I'd have needed a new liver 10 minutes ago

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

They said it three times.. god save the queen

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

They're clearly trying to make that a storyline for whatever reason

Little Bobby Tables should be The Spirit Of Boogie Basham for Halloween next year

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

We need 7!

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

Gonna have to score some TDs at some point if we want to win this game.

Is it basketball season yet?

Can't rewind but was Tre Turner wide open?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

I couldn't tell, but Hooker was wide open for the first down if he wanted it.

Is it basketball season yet?

We're gonna need some long TD plays because this offense (and most college offenses) just can't put together a 10+ play drive without screwing something up.

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

^^^^^^This

Reminding Bud what the offense looked like for 75% of the games he has coached here is quite the tribute.

Not sure that's accurate. We would have gone 3 and out 2 of the 3 drives if it was our "vintage" offense.

We have a game plan, and we're not going three and out.

It's a team in progress, but more offense than we've traditionally had.

Of course they had to show the 2014 game stuff, ugh.

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

Becton is looking good today.

Spoke too soon, on queue, there is a play with no pass pressure. Consistency would be nice.

Too much time in the pocket.

3 man front

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

They're moving the ball but FGs won't get it

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

That pass was incomplete, but the holding will offset it.

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

Why out of everyone do we have Quillen on Surratt??

He was wearing an Armani suit on that play

What a play by Chatman

Great play Chatman!!

What the hell do our safeties do in pass coverage? Deablo standing flat footed while the WR runs past him

And here we go 45 yard gain on 3 & 10

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

Conner getting worked today

Is it basketball season yet?

Cant' leave receivers wide open all game.

3rd and 10 and we give up a huge play. Sigh.

Huge pass play on 3rd and long. I'm SHOCKED.

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

Im starting to notice a trend with this 4 man rush thing.

Edit: It was a 4 man rush.

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

Yeah, doesn't work more than one play in a row.

No kidding.

It worked so well in the 4th quarter last week.

Need to hold them to a FG.

Shit

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

POOR TACKLING!!!

It's a sad state of affairs that Wake Forest has better coaching and personal than we do

The game plan has been good.

Our defense is too thin.

Wake outclasses us offensively at QB, WR, and OLine from the looks of it. And the coaching to utilize it

They don't have better personnel, they have the oldest team in college football and we have one of the 3 youngest. Its science, really.

Is it basketball season yet?

I haven't been able to say this all year, but I think we are outcoaching wf right now. I wonder why you think we aren't?

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

If Fuente had offered Surratt out of high school this site would have thrown fits. Same with QB, Newman.

Fair point, but that just reinforces the coaching point. What players have we seen get better developing under this staff?

He wasn't better then, but he is now

Basically every single starting player has improved since the Duke game.

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

Time to come back, own up to your negative comments and eat some crow.

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

Embarrassing effort there.

Thats a touchback!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it basketball season yet?

Where was the review?

That's why FGs wont help

And that.. is why we need to convert on those long drives. Wake is going to score TD's while we're kicking FG's inside the redzone. Not a recipe for success...

We don't have an OC that knows what to do at that part of the field

Settling for field goals'll get after ya

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I'm not sure they're settling. We have gone for it on a couple of 4th downs.

But yeah, we'll be needing a passing game.

Moving the ball seemingly at will between the 20s and then everything grinding to a halt in the redzone = settling for field goals.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Come need a TD before half!

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

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

We should have 13 points to their seven. That fumble earlier really screwed things up for us.

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

That was a touchback, should be our ball on the 20, 6-3

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Need our offense to get motivated.

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

How to squander scoring opportunities, lose the lead and give back all the momentum.

Well done.

Should be 21-10 VT at worst now. Running and milking the clock is good and fine, but we need to come away with points. Stalling out in the red zone isn't going to cut it.

That play should have been reviewed... TOUCHBACK

Is it basketball season yet?

Bud needs to dial up pressure on the QB. The 3 man rush isn't getting it done.

Remind me again why Wheatley was in on that pop pass instead of King? King has so much more breakaway speed

Why was the defender allowed to hit King out of bounds?

Sack

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

I hate that conservative shit on 2nd and long. Conceding a punt

Feeling like Duke. Please respond

I had a weird feeling about this game. I now know why.

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

ugh, 3 and out returns...

Wow. What a fucking waste of a drive. Let's give them the ball back with momentum, what's the worst that can happen. At least we have Bradburn

Get rid of Corny, this is a terrible offense right now.

Pour some Beer on it

We'll be needing a defense this series.

How the fuck do we only have 6 points

Dumb mistakes by players on both sides of the ball. Mishandled snap, bad fumble by Wheatley, blown coverages, poor tackling. Terribly coached team

Hooker doing his best Ryan Willis impression on that 3rd down play

Disappointing that we waste a really good return with a 3 and out.

Kinda tired of getting put in these bad spots because of the offense.

They have the ball on what, their 10 yard line?

Wow, pressure on the defense.

It's first and 10 at their own 11. Not really a bad spot here.

I meant in general. We should be blowing Wake out right now.

Or maybe we are in this game because of Our offense.

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

About to get ugly.....

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

3 and out. Pressure forced the incompletion.

Good stop.

Huuuge stop by the D. Needed that badly. Gotta get points on this drive before the half

Damn Heze is scaring the shit out of me this year

Yep, special teams is gonna give me a heart attack.

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

Yeah, what's Grimsley doing out there?

Why do we run, when the O-lin cant open a hole?

I hate the inside run on 2nd down

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Hazelton is turning it on!!

Everytime we have a play that puts us behind schedule we run a draw or dive the next play.

That's a huge first down.

FUCK. SO MANY DUMBASS PLAYS! JUST GO DOWN

Fuck. 3 fumbles

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

Another fumble.... UGH!!!

Can I keep doing this to myself every Saturday?

Crap another lost fumble.

Hooker, you have to protect the ball.

.... Because of the offense

Yea corn should really hold onto the ball better

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

Ridiculous

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

Disgusting lack of care for the football today sloppy stuff and we won't be winning shit

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

Just not our day today. Too many fumbles.

Just pissing it away...

Where's the beef?

Playing desperate, not smart

So Willis throws interceptions and hooker fumbles can't win

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

We're really gonna let them get in FG position with 50 seconds left off some runs?

Just do the little things. Sheesh

Is it basketball season yet?

Trash. Doesn't matter how many yards you chew up if you continually fumble in the redzone. Hooker sparks the offense, but CLEARLY is not ready to play.

Time for an interception

Just one Saturday I'd like to see us stop stepping on our own dick against decent teams.

They get the ball to start the 2nd half. We really needed those points. How many times can we shoot ourselves in the foot. This team is so frustrating to watch man

Fuck

Huge sack

Does QP fumble?

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

Well just like last week, this is all Bud's fault. /s

I'm happy with that half time score.

We get another corner back in the second half. Hopefully, we took some air out of their defense.

Their coach whining like a little girl. That's a good sign.

We are different people. I'm not sure how you can actually be happy with the score. Content, maybe. The defense has played well so far this game (NOTE that Wake gets to make adjustments). However, if our offense was competent, we'd be in the lead. That I would be happy with. Not trailing against an offense that has the ability to pop off. I'm glad you can be happy loosing though, props to you.

Am I happy we're not winning?? No. But I'm realistic, and this game is within reach. We can win this fucker.

I was worried about the first half, with only one serviceable corner. Hopefully, their defense will be a little looser in the second half, and we'll be making adjustments, too.

I'm happy because it's a winnable game. But yeah, we'll be needing to play better.

That TOP though...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Cornelson has called a great game so far aside from a couple plays. But damn the players are really costing us this game. Gotta step up & make plays. Turnovers have been momentum killers

Yup.

Agree can't blame this half on Corny. We need to protect the football and Hooker needs to settle down in the passing game.

The D is going to need to get a takeaway or two in the second half.

Hooker has been good in the passing game, he's 67% completion for 158 yards. The fumbles are killing us right now.

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

Poor ball security, not handling the snap, muffed punts, busted coverages, bonehead penalties, and not taking the touchback on kickoffs have all been way too consistent for this team over the past 2+ seasons.

All of these issues were present at the beginning of the Fuente era too, but we had the horses on both sides of the ball to cover it up.

This is not a well coached team.

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

Underclassmen. They'll get after ya'.

I don't know that you suddenly start doing all the little things right when you're a 3rd or 4th year player. I just don't know if we emphasize those little things enough. Do something over and over again it becomes habit.

Too much youth.

What are you going to do? It's a multiplier problem.

I know we are a super young team, but simple things like not carrying the ball in your outside arm, not protecting the ball with two arms while going down, poor kickoff return decisions, and not knowing the location of the first down marker are things that we shouldn't be seeing multiple times per game at this point.

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

Remember the fan reaction when he made King sit out part of a game?

Sort of hard for Fuente to make everybody sit out.

Hooker knows how to carry the ball better than that.

It's not as much about punishing players who make mistakes as it is teaching the fundamentals of the game. It's why we keep losing to teams with far inferior talent.

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

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

What was clawson crying about on the sideline?

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

Something about equipment people coming out on the field and being not very sportsmanship.

Post game comment: I think I heard that his complaint was that some people (Hokies presumably) were squirting his players with water (???). That doesn't sound like much but as cool as it was I can imagine that was pretty uncomfortable. If true, that is poor sportsmanship on our part.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

Clawson is such a bitch boy. Hope we come out & light them up in the 2nd half. One of my least favorite coaches in the ACC.

he's got a long ways to go to catch up with Nardouchy, but he's giving it a try.

I hate to break the bad news to you, but we aren't a great second half team.

Then again...looks like some things are changing.

VTCC '86 Delta Company, Hokie in Peru, Former USNR, Former FBISA, Forever married to my VT87 girl. Go VT!

Lordy I hope so.

Is this the way we pay tribute to Bud?

I mean, he's dealt with an incapable offense for most of his tenure here...so yeah

If you want level-headed opinions, don't go on a message board or sports forums

Offense is protecting the D in this one.

The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about turkey leg votes

20 minutes in time of possession in a HALF... and we only have 6 points to show for it. Embarrassing that Fuente promised Bud he would bring a prolific offense so defense wouldn't have to carry us & this is what we put forth in year 4.

What was Clausen so upset about?

Jimmy probably threw another pick somewhere. But Clawson was upset that our "equipment guys" were squirting water on their way to the lockerroom. I probably would be too, but I still find it pretty funny

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

Funny or not, it is low class. Reminds me of WVU throwing batteries.

I like the game plan but gotta stop shooting ourselves in the foot.

The first rule of Fight Club is we don't talk about turkey leg votes

Hopefully we have a little bit of a passing game in our pocket.

We should be up at least 3

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

Lol, who was spraying people with water

They probably looked hot.

But nobody needs to be doing that.

We have shot ourselves in the foot so much this season im surprised we're still standing πŸ˜‚

Tales told of battles won
Of things we've done

Hooker has 0 touch. He rockets everything

You noticed that too? Yes he needs to throw in more catchable ball when he rifles it

The polar opposite of Willis who only floats the ball and is scared to throw inside the hashes.

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

Jeez if I see one more Willis floated, under thrown jump ball I may end it all

Please see my post script!

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

Edit: Make me eat crow Fu!

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

We still dont have 17

Maybe Clawson will be so pissed about the water boys that he will forget to coach football at halftime.

Now we see if we can make better adjustments

There we go Waller! Great stop by the D to start the half

Great coverage! We've been pretty good in man coverage today.

Is it basketball season yet?

Hell yeah Tayvion! Thank you Fuente for taking Grimsley out from PR!

Force a three and out and get a good return on the punt. Good start to the half.

Loving the aggressiveness here. Moving the ball well, gotta score TD's at some point with these drives

HELL YEAH!! Way to answer out of halftime on both sides of the ball. LETS GO HOKIES!!!

Thr ia more likew it! Drinking!

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

Well, we broke the seal!

HOKIES!!!

Nice start to the half. 3 and out and then a TD drive.

They made that look easy

Everyone's got to admit these third quarters are a lot better than last year lol

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

Lol, last year we knew the wheels were coming off in the 3rd. ... Damn, I forgot about that. Haha

Come on D!

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

That was a full team TD. defense with the 3 and out, big return by special teams on the punt and the Offense doing work! LETS GO!!

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

Wtf is Herzlich talking about. Farley barely touched him on that long pass

More PI

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

They're both hand fighting. How is that on Waller?

Need to bow up here and force a fg

That was a makeup call.

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

ok that was PI????

Need to hold to a FG or get a TO.

Well Waller is getting used!

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

how does our defense still look so flat footed when tackling? I swear everyone of them waits for the ball carrier to hit them but then gives up another yard or two rather than attacking them and stopping them

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

I was wondering WTH Deablo was doing just standing there waiting for the ball carrier to challenge him

fuck

That was way too easy.

Things didn't look too great there.

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

It's so obvious Herzlich hates VT.

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

Here comes the shootout.

So on that one play where it was 2nd down & they got stopped like a foot short, the refs just gave them a first down & didn't review it or anything. Anyone else notice that?

Yes

Yep

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

Pisses me off

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

Yes.

They moved Surratt into the slot on that one... Gonna get quite a bit more difficult if that is where they decide to utilize him the rest of the way.

Is it basketball season yet?

Their receivers were the same distance from the line on the TD play as our were last week. Flag should have been on Wake for illegal formation.

HELL YEAH TRE!!!!! What a run

BIG PLAY TRE!!!

Fast

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

Mclease eats a great block there!

Is it basketball season yet?

Was it a tasty block?

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

Now I lost radio reception. What is this the 50's???!

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

Offense is clicking. Need another TD

Hell yeah McClease! Great blocking on that play

McClease was HUGE on that drive

Good job, McC!

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

Nice patience by McClease! Touchdown, Hokies!

RUN DMC!!!!

This doesn't have enough love folks.

Is it basketball season yet?

Keep Frank in the booth!!!

Hire Cornelsen!

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

The Answer! The backs seem to have gotten much more patient as the season has gone on. It seems they are better at hitting holes (and maybe there are more and bigger holes too.)

Big holes happen when 2 guys chase after a hooker

Need more evidence of the QB run threat being yuge for this offense? Both unblocked defenders followed HH and neither went to McClease

It looks like the O is starting to click...this would be a great time for a 3&out...

How about a big man interception?

Nah, we'll take a 1 and out.

WOOOOOO!!! Big Man INT!!!

love it when the DLine get their mitts on the ball!

Defense had 5 in the box there, could've easily picked up the 1st with a QB power.. why did we call TO?

Shooting ourselves in the foot again......

Wasted timeout

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

Such a stupid timeout.. we had the advantage in the box on a 3rd & 2

Cannon.. are you fucking kidding me? we easily had that FUCK

Should of had a first there. Good play call by Corny, just didn't get enough time

Typical VT football; have opportunity to go up by 10, but end up only stretching the lead to 6.

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

Sooooo many field goals in the redzone. We should be up way more than 6. So disappointing man.

False start out of a timeout at home on a critical 3rd and short... This bullshit is really getting old.

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

I like the game plan of focusing on the run and milking the clock, but man has the offense gone into ultrasafe turtle mode the last two weeks. Can't keep coming away with field goals.

Ashby just got blasted in the back on that screen & no flag.. you cant miss that call

Every fair catch on a kickoff counting as a touchback is so stupid

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

How was that not a fucking block in the back on Ashby on the RB screen!?! WTF!!

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

it was violent too

Time for another 3 and out.

Conner not having a great game today

edit - and then he comes up with the nice blitz sack

So. Many. Stupid. Mistakes.

Big time stop right there by LPD

Nice sack!

Sack Bud is playing Bud Ball!

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

Let's extend this lead.

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

Hooker been a little off on some of those screens

Haze gotta fight for that last yard there

I think he did.

The spot robbed him of a yard.

You have the CB 10 yards off Hazelton on 3rd & 2... why tf would you run it up into a stacked box instead of tossing it out to him on a stick or out or something

TBH if Hooker would have run he would have got it. Instead he tiptoed

We are just trying to not turn the ball over any more at all costs.

Come on guys; we had a chance to extend the lead; that was weak.

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

Horrible spot

What a punt! We got em backed up. Need the D to step up.

That 3rd down call was so Cornelsen...

Is it basketball season yet?

Hooker would have had it easily if he had run up into the pile.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Good job by Bradburn.

What a shit 3rd down play.

Aussie doing his thing. His pic on espn looks like hes 40. Maybe he is!

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

How tf do you give that up Deablo

We can't give Newman that much time. He has picked us apart.

And they get out of the box.

Man.

We gotta stop only rushing 3, It doesn't work.

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

We are bending; would love not to break here.

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

The fact that he even got 8 yards there is ridiculous. We're so bad at tackling... They're probably gonna go for it with 4th & 2 around midfield. Should've maybe gotten 3-4 yards on that

Maybe, but stopping Newman from getting a first down is a win.

I feel like this 4th and 2 is either a go for it or a fake after the commercial break.

Highly likely.

Need a huge defensive stop.

Glad I was wrong here!

Man.. really glad they didnt' go for that 4th down but very surprised they didn't

I'll take that.

The D came to play....pretty much since our O has improved our D has followed suite......

Mitchell = baller

Another Mitchell TE screen for big yards.

Hooker spreading it all around to everyone ...

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

Hooker knows how to spread it.

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

I cna't see Mitchell ran the ball? How?

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

Like a boss.

Hooker handed it off to him and he ran it

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Lined up in the pistol with the RB behind & Keene to the left & Mitchell to the right of Hooker. Sweep to the left with the handoff to Mitchell with Keene & the RB lead blocking. Great play call & great blocking

I yelled "Don't throw the fade!" before that two point conversion attempt... *sigh*

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

Do we get ranked if we win?

Shush, you

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Haha Haha. I can't help it.

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

No, but we get another win.

No, but if we can get to 8-3 for the UVA game we should slide in the 20-25 range.

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

Why go for two there??

Is it basketball season yet?

The difference between 12 and 13 is less important than the difference between 13 and 14

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Not really. Two scores is a HUGE deal when you are facing a clutch kicker. Terrible decision.

Is it basketball season yet?

Correct idea. Had the matchup. Hooker threw a horrible throw.

"I play real sports, not trying to be the best at exercising..." - KP

?????????

13 and 14 are both two TDs. You try to make the lead 14 because then two scores ties it, not wins it. If the lead is 12 or 13, it doesn't matter because then if they score two TDs they're ahead either way. And either way a field goal for us would win it

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Because this late in the game a 13 point lead is usually no better than a 12 point lead.

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

Chart says so. 12 point lead is basically the same as 13. They need two touchdowns, and the deficit being 1 or 2 doesn't change that we'd need a field goal. If we convert and go up 14, best they can do is tie. So it's worth it.

Hate going for 2 there. Momentum killer when you dont get it.

I don't think that killed any momentum.

great offensive drive. Set them up all game for that one.

Tisdale has to make the tackle on that 3rd down

Another big 3rd down.

Looked like a catch but an injury to Surratt would be huge for us

Was the ball moving?

It's super close, I think his elbow was down when the ball came out.

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

That was a fumble. Call on the field is gonna stand though bc it's not conclusive

You'd have to look at that replay very closely, but I suspect you're right.

I hope Surratt is okay......
After the game.

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

That wasn't a fumble and is definitely not enough evidence to overturn the call on the field.

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

Need more pressure on Newman than that.

Delay of game, better than a timeout.

I have a feeling without Surratt in the game they are just gonna chuck it up and try to draw PI.

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

They're continuing to attack the middle of the field with crosses, slants and bang 8's. We just got lucky that the QB missed.

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

Need a negative play on 3rd and 1

Huuuuuuge stop there! Let's go LPD!!!

That was a huge stop.

Connor got beat but Newman missed him.

HOKIES!!

One more

When we get the ball back we need to attack; not go to a prevent offense.

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

YES!

Yes. Great stop on 3rd and 4th downs!

Turnover on downs baby

Oh baby turnover on downz

"Why gobble gobble chumps asks such good questions, I will never know." - TheFifthFuller

Now, offense, seal the deal.

When did our RBs get so good at making a man miss?

They're waiting for the hole to develop.

I don't know how they made that adjustment, but they seem to have worked it out.

And the line is opening better holes too.

Laze also said on the radio that the line seemed to have figured out some of wakes keys.

Hooker.. great decision but not a great throw there

Bradburn is an All-American. What a beast

Great play call there after seeing the LB getting ready to blitz... unfortunate that the throw was just a bit off.

When in the world did it look like they were going to fold? I didn't get that sense at all.

Why do this announcers not understand that Wake is pulling out starters because Wake can still win the Atlantic?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

That's why they're announcers and not coaches.

With two losses?

Edit: I am assuming there is no chance of Clemson losing to NC State

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

Only one of Wakes losses are from Atlantic. If Wake beats Clemson they would have head to head.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

I should have clarified that I think that Clemson's only chance of losing would be against Wake; which would only give them one loss vs Wake's two losses.

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

It's irrelevant if your loss is against Atlantic or Coastal, their conference losses and they all count in your standings.
