Edit for the shame

I was just coming here to ask which one of you that was :D

HOKIES!!!!

Gameday just said Miami is without multiple players today.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Game was in flux with them toeing the line closely on the required number of available OL per guidelines.

They're missing 4 or 5 OL, we're missing 3 DE... The stoppable force vs the movable object will decide this game

I don't expect Waller to ever be 100% right this season. Just feels like he's gotta have one of those injuries that just won't get better all the way this season.

Yee

My lips are moving but there's no sound
Someday somebody's gonna get run down

sounds like a perfect storm for our clean hitters to completely miss their tackles

Major shoutout to apparent Nagurski defensive player of the week last week for Tavante Beckett, former Hokie who transferred to Marshall and would almost certainly be starting for us the last two seasons.

Yeah he said he trusted us to stop the run... I was like wait what?

I give him a little leeway assuming he was factoring in the OL issues.

must be watching vintage footage from last decade

DH is not the sharpest tool in the shed except last week when he was the only one to pick liberty.

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

he picked Liberty last week, and this week he's handing out compliments to our rush D?

Alright guys. Are we no longer doing "Let's Go Hokies" first on this thread? We screwed the pouch already.

Meh

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

I mean, the first two posters have ONE JOB...

Anybody else cringe a little when they play the liberty mutual insurance ad?

(freakin' Hokies....)

Think we see more Griffen (who seemed to play more last week too), Wooten, and Eli Adam's today I guess.

We continue to be paper thin at LB.

Pregame show says Ashby warming up and looks good.

We put the K in Kwality

Love the expression from the guy in the original post picture.

Will be watching daughter swim, so won't see any of the game. Fuente and company have an opportunity to turn things around. Will see what happens. If they can pull off the upset (don't care what the line is, it would be a big upset) then we still have a chance to have a pretty decent year. Drop to 4-4 and we could easily be looking at 5-6 in what was supposed to be a good year and transformative recruiting. They better come out with a lot of energy and fire.

Winning today would be really helpful for assuaging the justifiably upset fanbase. I hope for the team's sake too that they stay unified and pull the "upset." Go Hokies!

Will our DBs keep assignments and keep King in check?

Use the short pass game to open the run options for Blackshear.

Good playcalling on the first few plays.

Let's start the Fuente took over playcalling rumors now. They always make me feel better for some reason ๐Ÿ˜‚

I just hope Hendon stays healthy...

Warning- Filter lost.

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

We'te 2.0 point underdogs, Miami is #9, who's thinking we are that good?

You wot

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

What kind of bs is that?

ACC refs

We should've had the first there. Regardless, teams know Hendon is taking that so why not run something else.

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

Wow. What kind of fake is that?

Strange officiating already.... is this a sign of things to come?

Why didn't the ref right next to the downed guy blow his whistle at all? Bizarre

Was the player even down?

Having the play called back sucks, but Hooker run on the 3rd and 2 was crazy predictable. Boring and sad.

They are selling out stop our run today

Going to need to throw to win. I don't have faith in Corny to even realize it.

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

Our D is just bad. They're weak, confused, timid.

We put the K in Kwality

Miami O playing with tempo. Our defense will get tired fast.

thats something we should do

If I'm Miami I go for it.

Absolutely. Although their kicker has a fuckin cannon leg

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Kicker just ran over Chatman.

We put the K in Kwality

That was dumb, they would have gotten it running a normal offense.

It was good for us!

Good stop on the fake field goal.

That's a huge play for the VT defense.

Great start from the defense, if for nothing else but some confidence.

Fully expecting to return from the media timeout finding out we called a timeout before the snap.

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

Manny Diaz with an idiotic call there. If you are not kicking, then just keep your offense on the field. We were definitely playing to stop a fake there and our D is like a sieve on 4th down. Made no sense

Stupid decision by Miami. Just line your offense up, our D is allergic to 4th down stops.

Glad that Fuente had the "fake fg" personnel out there

On NCAA 14, that's "FG Safe." Probably one of the least-called plays in the game.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

That was not a well executed fake

And we were all over it

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

And he still almost got it with that passive tackle.

That was gift by Miami. They had a better chance to get the 1st down if they had just run a normal play.

Manny Diaz with a really crappy call. Tech gives up 90% of 4th downs, but he decides to run a fake field goal instead...

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Bitter says 16-for-21 which is 76%, but I get your point and Miami definitely should've run a regular play instead of a fake

Miami will have the first down when they come back from commercial, watch

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Normally this year, teams have just been going for it on fourth and short.

I guess they thought they might get an easy TD.

Glad it backfired.

Was it just me or was there a false start on that FG try?

That would be our luck!

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

Looked like the TE moved.

Looks like glorious weather for a fall game day in Blacksburg.

Ugh, 3rd and 10. Not where we need to be

Yeah! First down

I'm hoping for a 1995 Miami game. We thought the Hokies would get killed and they pulled the upset.

Eww. Double clutch on an RPO and miss by 5 yards.

Big play for Blackshear we needed that third down.

Good run by Blackshear.

Got it done.

our receivers look disinterested in blocking edit: everyone looks disinterested in blocking

Fairs has been our best WR blocker so his absence may be felt today. Need others to step up.

Nice play on 3rd down. HH felt the pressure and checked it down to Blackshear.

Miami tackles so well. This is a game where we'll miss KMFH a lot.

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Offensive line looking especially sieve like this afternoon

Did Tenuta even touch Philips??

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Our OL is getting worked a little bit by miami's DL.

Wtf is with the tempo?

Do we get the drunk announcers EVERY WEEK?!

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

You know damn well ain't one of them wearing any pants either hahahah

Warning- Filter lost.

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

You know, when you let the defender beat you at the LOS without even touching him, that's just not ideal.

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

***whiff***

Another whiffed tackle in space

Over aggressive without control (or thinking). Too.much practice tackling stationary blocking dummies.

Yeah, not sure I buy the "hardhat mentality" any more.

Great pressure. Now we need to score

Wow, a stop on 3rd down...

Nice pressure on 3rd down by Hewitt to force the errant throw.

Holy shit... a defensive stop??? What is this?!?!?

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Great job by Hewitt on that one.

Defense doing their part early.

New punt returner and it shows.

VB born, class of '14

Finally Robinson lost his PR job

KH getting 7 out of nothing.

Does the O-line respond better to KH as the RB?

HOOKER TO THE BANK!

GREAT RUN BY HOOKER LETS GOOOOOOO

yee yee fam!

Wow the respect they show to Herbert just opened that up for Hooker

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

Amazing how having a RB the defense respects opens up other options

VB born, class of '14

Herbert's presence helps a ton

HH with the great run for the TD!

That announcer that said Hooker was slow now looks like an idiot.

The more games I watch the more I'm convinced it's less that our run blocking is great so much that Herbert is just that elite of a runner. Such a huge difference when he's in there.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Yep. He has abilities that you can't teach. He's just good at football.

Without Herbert, that's stopped for a loss.

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Great call on that TD, the defense played the sweep motion hard

That big beautiful gazelle running free

The difference in the way the defense has to respect Herbert is unreal. It really opens up the entire offense.

We need to stop doing block-tackles and wrap up with their arms.

Despite King converting that third and short I think we actually covered it up pretty well. Good movement by Dax and Griffen to prevent it from breaking

Prevent pass coverage is NO way to win a game

Is Dax sleeping?

It looks like he has responsibility for outside contain today.

Sack. Sack. Take 'em back!

We put the K in Kwality

it's crazy how much better our defense looks this week

Nice sack on that 3rd down. Thought that they left the middle wide open, but Kendricks stunted nicely.

Kendricks just undressed that OLman on that sack

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

Pressure right up the middle has been money for us thus far.

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

Defense bending, but tightening up near red zone.

Great stop by JHAMs defense. Now time for Corn to get 7

VB born, class of '14

They got 3 but that series was win for the D

Big play Tre!

How can #9 be an underdog to a #nuthin'?

Lol I was yelling at that tempo but that was a great play

VB born, class of '14

This team with confidence is really good to see today. Not sleepwalking so far.

Ugh, this play calling...

Mind numbing. Imagine how impressive this talent would be with someone who actually watched the games?

We put the K in Kwality

oh look classic conservative playcall

That 3rd down call is horrific to set up a missed FG

Hate that playcall on 3rd and 7. That's a playing for a field goal call.

Watch that finger LOL thing is deadly

It's a touchdown if Hooker keeps!

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

that was way right

Am I only feeling like I'm seeing a lot of Miami tackles near the facemask?

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

What the hell with that 3rd down call

great job

Third and long, run up the middle. Predictable.

Don't necessarily hate the call. Hooker keeps it and it's a first.

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

Should have punted there. I don't think Johnson is as confident at long range any more.

That FG attempt wasn't even close. Disappointed that we chose to run Blackshear inside on 3rd and 7.

I didn't like the third and 7 call either.

The FG looked like a timing problem, the kick wasn't timed well.

This is going to be great for the ACC.

That was a missed read by Hooker. If he keeps it, we have room on the edge

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Did we learn NOTHING from last week?

VB born, class of '14

3rdand 7 and we run up the middle

Recruit Prosim

It's like he short circuits it seems like. Panic play call.

I wish I could see his situational play call sheet.

Classic Corn Fu. On the absolute edge of FG range so go totally conservative. Stupid call.

I can't stand Fuente and Corn's conservative strategy for every game no matter the opponent, situation, etc. It is sickening.

The coach like they have nothing to gain. They should be coaching like they have nothing to lose...cause they're going to lose their jobs.

We put the K in Kwality

I could see the approach if he had the Ray Lewis Ravens defense. But instead we have a weak defense and a potent offense. Stupid stupid call.

ummm, don't you remember "we don't change,,,based on the result."

There are absolutely plays we run that we know aren't going to get a first down.

That 3rd down playcall was one of them.

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

Anyone else think the ref running across the field at the FG snap was a weird distraction?

"Thatโ€™s a stupid question. Next question."
-Corey Moore

Interior DL decided to show up today!

Who are these guys and what have they done with our normal defense?

25 sacks for Hewitt today?!

He's only on pace for 8

We put the K in Kwality

Miami WR drops are helping us a bunch

"That move was slicker than a peeled onion in a bowl of snot." -Mike Burnop

Beautiful stunt.

Another 3 and out with another sack. This DL is channeling the NC State game.

I'm not trying to be salty, but I can't help myself, we couldn't do this against Liberty?

The rumors of Miami being razor thin at OL today is playing out to be true

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

Wow, the defense making up for shitty play calling...vintage VT

Sketchy review...

The defense actually is working to contain today. I saw Conner make a good play to make sure he kept contain and forced the play back to Deablo. Some improvements from last week

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Place holder question for French: Are we still seeing Hooker make the wrong reads on these options?

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

It sure looked like he had 2 on the drive with the missed FG.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

The 3rd down read was wrong.

Where he was hit 4 yards deep in the backfield it looked like it too. Blackshear ran towards the middle with no one around him.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Do the refs only call personal fouls against Tech on plays and tackles out of bounds? Miami seems to always throw us down once out of bounds and no calls were made

Miami...dirty? No way.

We put the K in Kwality

My knees tremble every time Hooker takes off

thats what he said

Holston with the nice block (even though he kinda got destroyed) to spring HH on that run.

What a good block by Holston

Edit: LOVE THAT THEY FED HIM

VB born, class of '14

I call that the sacrifice block. Likely didn't feel to good.

Holston is playing like he has something to prove, and IS!

Happy to see Holston hit pay dirt

Really good to see JH0 running wild!

We put the K in Kwality

LETS GO FAM

LFG!!!!

Holston looks strooonnngg

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

TD for the doughnut!

.....ok so we all predicted this playing out today....

Is this the same team?

Again, WRs are catching the ball and running backward before running forward. Fortunately, I'm talking about Miami's WRs here.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Man, Chatman had a chance for a HUGE stop there.

BUT that's a tough one on one with King.

Miami was lined up.off side, the receiver!

That WR was lined up a full body length ahead of the line

Prevent SUCKS!

Horrendous series there. Chatman has to know where he is in space on that big pass.

King froze Deablo there

Deablo was in position where he should have been. Conner has to keep the edge and force King back to Deablo

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Diablo played that right. The other DB lost contain badly.

22 lost contain on that TD run.

And because I complimented him before, Conner loses contain and King gets the edge easy

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Conner took himself out of position to allow that score.

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

Refs missing a lot of holds and no review on Miami's longest play?

The catch was good, though. Wouldn't have been overturned.

True, but should have been looked at.

Welp...there's our LBs on cue, giving up contain and letting King walk in for the TD.

Conner blew it also

We lead the nation in overrunning plays on defense.

Nicki struggles when we rush the passer. We might need to blitz like hell the rest of the game to keep them at bay

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

Our DB can't react in zone coverage quick enough...

Our defense is incredibly soft between the 30's.

You mean between August 30th and December 30th?

I'm laughing at this comment all day! Thank you๐Ÿป

It be nice to burn 5 minutes off the clock and get a TD here to end the half.

Saved by the penalty

That was a weak PI call. Don't think it was tipped though but tough to tell.

These refs are hunting to turn the game against Tech

His hand didn't touch.

The O-line is getting pushed around

Blackshear is not really impressing inside.

What has happened to Oscar this year?

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

Boy our playcalling leaves a lot to.be desired.

I'll just be kind and leave it there for now.

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

We needed points and a stop. Instead Miami is going to milk the clock and then score prior to half. Go up 3 and get the ball coming out.

We really need a turnover here

Getting killed on that WR screen

Miami has realized we play 10 ply coverage on the corners, and are just dicing us up on the screen whenever they want it.

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

What is with the soft coverage?

We don't really have the DBs to play tight coverage and JHam has put in more zone.

Correct, no Farley and no Waller, and Webb transferring all hurt in different ways

VB born, class of '14

Great play by Murray there to save a TD.

Barno with the sack to push them back!

Now block the kick. Good stop for the D.

Honestly the only thing I have an issue with today is the offensive play calling.

Hey Hedley - you're the fucking holder. Shut the fuck up and get off the field.

Turns out he's their Aussie punter. And an old guy.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

should've taken a TO with 40 seconds left

I think we need to call more timeouts in the first half to slow the U (any) offense and give our D a chance to catch breath and regroup. Oh we just did! And it worked. Gave up 3 though.
Why go into to the half with TO's left? To me, first half timeouts are for the defense and seconds half TO's are for the offense.

Carolina Hokie

So we're up. D looks better. O doing ok. What is up with our best player Herbert? Came in now gone.

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

Hamstrings can be nagging. He didn't start. Guessing he's not 100% and they don't want to risk injuring it worse after he tried to give it a go for a series.

Herbert still having hamstring issues.

I was working on a painting and only half paying attention.

What in the world is our team?

Split personality disorder

My lips are moving but there's no sound
Someday somebody's gonna get run down

Well, we can definitely play with this team. Convert a couple more third downs without the officials reversing them and we can win.

Beautiful start to the half

Defense is at their best when the commentators are misidentifying them on every play.

Great series to open the half.

Khalil Hubert!

They keep saying Drake D caught his first pass of the season today, but I could swear I saw 89 catch a pass last week and thought "was that Drake D???"

We didn't play last week

QP!

That was a sick run by Holston!

Holston went full on Beast Mode at the end of that run. Wow 10 yard drag

And follows it up with 6 on the next play

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

Holston > Blackshear

Change my mind

"A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it." - K

Anyone at RB > Blackshear

I don't agree, Blackshear may not be as good as the runners we have on this roster, but he's still better than running backs we've had over the last several years. He's just clearly a scatback, not an every down guy.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

He's a good receiver, too. Picked up some big yards on a swing pass and a dump off.

Yeah, we really aren't using him right.

He'd be better used in the slot. The numbers don't lie. He's mediocre as a RB in this offense.

Depends on what you ask them to do. Holston is better at power things, Blackshear is better at speed things (including receiving).

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Doughnut with the run around the end and almost fought into the endzone. And then rewarded with the carry on the next play.

Holston has been a pleasant surprise today. He might be the future when Herbert inevitably declares for the NFL.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Hot damn what a drive after a biggg defensive stop.

VB born, class of '14

Holstein for Heisman!

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

Mooooo!

Is he the bell cow of the offense?

Holston is nasty really like the wrinkle he brings to the field. Like the use of QP as well to play to the power

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

Really could not have started this half better.

Run it down their throats

We need Herbert and Blackshear in on kick off returns, and run/fake the reverse (like the old days with Royal)

Don't know if it's been mentioned, but I haven't seen Tisdale today. Is that right? And if so, any idea why?

Sack, sweet sack

Seems like they worked on third downs this week.

Dax with the sack! And great coverage by Taylor on the first down play.

These boys look fired up

One one end I'm happy to see our defense playing well. Like we actually are playing good fundamentals instead of just getting lucky on turnovers. I'm still fuming that we are so inconsistent and couldn't figure this out last week.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Oh we are drawing up some wonderful blitzes today. That Dax sack was a very well designed blitz.

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

He was the perfect amount of patient

Great return by Blackshear. Should have been laundry as well.

He hasn't played well this yr, but I love when Dax makes a play...the guy raises the energy level of the team

Herbert 10+ YPR are a beauty to behold

Man Miami has tons of late tackles that I think could be flagged

Some things never change

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Penalize Miami? Are you kidding?

Dont love settling for a FG ever, but this team is built well in this situation. Two score lead in the second half with the run game looking effective we should be able to see this out for a win.

You just had to.

Where's the beef?

There's the Brad we know.

Fade on 2nd down.

Slow developing 3rd down play with obvious Blitz coming.

Truth.

Is there any way to make more stupid calls on those 2 downs?

Damn, that was a missed opportunity to really create some separation in this game.

Why do we give up the run there keep it chewing

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

Hate the fade call without a super physical and athletic receiver, but don't think I can kill Corn for that one.

Hewitt is earning #25 again

That last set of downs was not great by Hendon. Wrong read to hand off on 1st down, poor route/throw combo on the fade on 2nd, held the ball way too long on 3rd.

Get Angry, Bud!

2nd and 10 and you throw a fade... WTF?

Bleeding burnt orange and chicago maroon

Wow I thought the flag would be a hold

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Do we know how to do pass coverage?

Man they cannot handle our blitzing today

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

That should be way fucking shorter than that spot

Refs ignoring lots of Miami holds and giving them great spots.

Surprised? Really?

It's truly impressive how consistently wrong these announcers have been about a wide variety of comments today

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

Yeah, 11 point lead but a FG will cut it to 5. math is hard.

He followed it up with a long pause and some quick maths when they finally did get a TD. lol

At one point I heard "VT wants to hold Miami on 1st and 2nd downs". As opposed to what exactly?

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

What a shit spot on that 3rd down.

Can't afford to lose Deablo

I actually think Dax has played pretty well today.

And the Miami holding continues

Alright, the defense has done enough to put us in position to win this game. It's time for the offense to close this game out.

Good job on Dax to deny the 2pt conversion

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

Great play by Dax!

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

Defense back to worrying play. Good stop by Dax.

Let's be real 19 through the first 3 is more than acceptable given what we have come to expect from this defense. They are doing their part to help us win with multiple stops and big sacks.

Offense, our best unit, needs to close this game out.

Dax is making plays today

Dax with a great stop on on the 2pt conversion.

Can we please staple Blackshear to the bench? Gain of zero and then useless in pass protect.

Feed Holston, he's having himself a game

Tenuta just got flat beat

Bailed out by a personal foul

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

Need the offense to get another td.

Lucky break on the flag there

VB born, class of '14

Did Miami just Miami and give us yards?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

here goes conservative corny...trying to run run run 16 minutes off the clock

OFFENSE lets do this thing and close this game out. Don't get too conservative we NEED MORE POINTS.

What happened with the penalty?

Miami safety doing Miami things. (not on the sack, away from the play).

Their safety got a little chippy after the play, apparently

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

They talked about the sack as we were moving the ball 15 yards down the field.

Like uh guys hello.

This is where Corny needs to learn to be a better play caller they make a stupid play are celebrating the sack. We take our time getting up to the line, run a slow developing okay and give them a chance to regroup. Should have run hurry up and taken a quick shot.

We put the K in Kwality

Lets hope KH has juice for the fourth quarter.

The bone headed play of the game is not silencing your phone when you are supposed to be calling a game.

Miami ran 43 plays in the first half. We have run 46 for the game.

We put the K in Kwality

raheem blackshear just isn't it for so far besides punt return... That's a good job for him. Give it to Holston, herbert when his leg feels good or our other weapons. Or maybe I just reverse jinxed him

Hokie Club member since 2017

Grat play Holston!!

Great catch and run by Holston

Incredible by Holston. He has made some HUGE individual plays today.

Jalen Holston is having the game of his life

Run like a senior with your hair on fire.

We put the K in Kwality

or hes proving the coaches wrong that their guy blackshear shouldnt be playing ahead of him....another coaching blunder?

Won't complain about getting some free yards there.

Looked like a gift

Holston is balling out of control today, especially with Herbert still not 100%.

We need points on two more drives I think to win this.

Someone messed up on that screen and it was Darrisaw or Gallo.

Weak ass play calls

Was anyone surprised on that 3rd down call?

Lol QB keeper

Another play call that I hate on third and long in long FG range.

This ultra conservative playcalling to open the 4th is infuriating

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

Straight QB draw, smdh!

every time, 3rd and medium, always qb run, no creativity at all

Miami defense adjusting.

Corny calling the same predictable plays on every 3rd Down.

And Miami has had two straight run blitzes and shut it down

I absolutely hate going conservative with this lead. We NEED MORE POINTS, we cannot expect a mediocre defense to closet his game out. They have done their part to help us win, but we can't force them to make stops every drive for the rest of the game. It may work, but it's bad strategy given that the offense is our stronger unit.

Im out... so fucking out... 3rd and 8 and you run a designed QB run. Just laughable now

Bleeding burnt orange and chicago maroon

The offensive line has slacked up and isn't getting after it and now we look inept without some bad calls by the officials. Nice third down run call cornelson. Bad read on the sweep to keep by hendon though

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

Corny trying to give away the game again. Super conservative

Conservative Cornelson just can't help himself anymore

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

D needs to make some plays here. If they take the lead, we aren't getting it back. Brad has gone into full Turtle Mode at this point

Now is when they would typically pop like a 25 yarder.

Perfect spot for a pick six

Great D stand

Nice D there.

Defense with stop

Need one of those Herbert 50ydrs....

Here comes a three and out

Now run the real offense.

We look so tight and scared on O

VB born, class of '14

Big third down...

QB run incoming

Second chance to put it away Corny

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

...and failed

You must be delusional thinking Corny would want to do that.

corny has no "go for the jugular" instinct in that dome of his

TRASH

VB born, class of '14

Horrific. Horrific. Horrific.

This one is on the offense is we lose. This is so bad.

Fake punt time!

Corny showing his ineptness again.

Kinda weird to say but the defense is what's kept us in this.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

We almost forgot what that feels like. It would be nice to have both the O & D perform well at the same time

I guess I'll take boring over incompetent and losing, but damn. You have the opportunity to put it away, fucking do it. Don't wait until you are down 4 points and on the last drive of the game before trying to push the ball down the field.

Corny is our biggest liability.

He's not even a servicable OC.

At least Stiney was a solid Recruiter.

Brad is literally not an asset in any area

This is not just Corny. Poor execution by offense. They are playing scared.

You can tell they were not mentally prepared to be in a spot to win this game. At least not on offense

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

So, other than the fact that it didn't work, what was wrong with a pass call on third down?

The last 3 series Corny has gone into some sort of prevent offense. Conservative crap calling as if we are up by 3 touchdowns.

They're playing like they have a two or three score lead right now and are looking scared to make a play

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

It's the hope that kills you.

Horrible punt....

I swear this feels like Frank's philosophy, get up two scores and go conservative to protect the ball. Problem is, he doesn't have a reliable defense to sit back on.

Its eerily similar.

Hoping the D can force a TO to make up for O ineptitude.

The VT offense took 58 seconds off of the clock. And the punt exchange gave Miami 15 yards

Interception time

Need to run clock, get first downs. We call three passes and use 0:52 of clock.

We put the K in Kwality

Hey do you guys think this is why D'Eriq King came to Miami? Jesus Christ these announcers...

Boats n hoes is the correct answer

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

This is where it's gonna go downhill...

I have 3 favorite teams. VT, Kentucky, and whoever is playing Tennessee.

Where is Tisdale?

Been sick all week (stomach flu?). Available but not 100%

We put the K in Kwality

Taylor is spooked. King runs and Taylor sits back and gives him 5 extra yards

Again, I think Dax has been really solid today.

Need a turnover or its curtains

VB born, class of '14

Chasing pass coverage...ugh

Miami has figured Tech out.

Okay wtf are these spots? Clearly not a first down...

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

And there it goes

2 consecutive terrible spots

Another first down gain for the refs

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

and this is what happens when our offense plays not to lose

And our defence waits for the ballcarrier to run to them before tackling, or trying to

Hey look Fuente has choked away a big lead

Shocking

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

What do you consider a big lead?

No excuses for the offense if we lose this game now.

They just have Miami two false first downs

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

nice, they're gonna win this without having a lead for 90% of the game

Refs just giving them first downs with horrible spots..

Man Dax again. Great play.

This is my shocked face ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

I've been critical of Dax all year but he's been very good today.

Time for Corn to redeem himself...

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Now that we are behind ....

That's two 2-pt conversions that Hollifield has come up big on.

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

Dax with another stop on the conversion

We again are finding a way to lose. It's not easy. You have to have coordinated screw ups on offense and defense. But we can do it.

Man, only everyone saw this coming. I wonder why corny couldn't?
I present a motion for his name to never be capitalized on this website ever again.

Seconded

Ok let's zoom down the field with ease. Then get super conservative when we get to the Miami 30 so that we can attempt a long FG.
Corny game plan execute.

Expect a QB draw on 4th and 6

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Game.

We can't beat a Miami team with literal scraps put together at OL.

Bye Fuente. Take your gutless and talentless OC with you

If we lose, it's on Corny. Instead of peddle to the metal, he goes all conservative the last 3 drives. Make Hooker run down the clock. Quick, Coach Fu, take over play calling again so we can catch them off balance and keep the gas going.

If we put Blackshear in instead of Herbert this drive, I will be even more frustrated.

Cue the "it comes down to execution" quote from Fuente. The D has played their butts off today, but Fuente's high octane offense has gone into its shell

VB born, class of '14

Doggone it...

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

...Come on man

Lol fucking christ, Cornelson

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

Corny needs to be escorted out now.

Dude, you seconded my motion. WTF?

I will stand here and own my shame.

Wow what a stupid throw and even dumber play call

WTF IS OUR OC EVEN DOING

OH and now we go aggressive with that?

Get outta here Corn

Okay, I'm done. You all have fun torturing yourselves.

wow

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Horrible throw yes. But why that play? We don't need that.

nice route kaleb... way to pick up the ball

"Play calling got.out of.hand", really? You think?

Arm punt on first down.

Fuck

Hard, smart, tough.

Don't know what happened to Hooker there. That was a duck

Circling the wagons isn't going to work this year. Went to the well one too many times.

That play is on either Hooker or that receiver but what a dumb fucking play call by Cornelson

ESPN. The coverage is excellent, you'd be surprised at how much you can pick up.

Never seen an offense that the wide receiver and the quarterback get worse connections as they age within the offense..... Where is Hooker to Turner?

Our defense is balling out today and corny is just pissing it away for the lolz

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

Not my favorite play call, but what kind of throw was that?

was that a leg whip from Dax?

Our team plays with the same level of awareness as our coaching staff---absolutely zero

Defense bails the offense out AGAIN.

STEP UP OFFENSE

Now watch corn go ultra conservative again

do we have a single punt return today?

Blackshear had a big one to set up a field goal if I remember

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Yeah I think Blackshear had a nice one earlier

More notable... zero muffed punts

I think Blackshear was backpedaling a bit a knew he was around the 10. Won't fault him for letting it hit.

Dax!

Hard, smart, tough.

Ok...TIme for a 90 yard drive!!! LET'S GO!!!!!!!!!

Defense is bailing us out. 5 words I didn't think I would say today

I wish we could recruit a QB like Sam Howell. I wish we could recruit. I wish we had competent coaches.

Maybe you should spell it imoH.... lol

Are we now afraid to catch punts too?

I think because of the coaching we're afraid of it...

I'll allow it gif.

Herbert moves the pile!

Time to get something going on offense.

C'mon Hooker.

And here comes ccccorny's FOURTH chance to win this game.......

Edit: apparently that's not enough chances to get it done

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Well, or anybody who is willing to make a play.

fuck a FG get a TD + 2

Okay Hooker put it behind you and play.

Hooker has been holding the ball too long. Need more quick passes

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Jet Sweep

Hooker playing quite tentative last few possessions

Hooker struggles to feel the pressure and just throw it away there to avoid the sack.

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

Regardless of the outcome here there were some questionable play calls in this game.

Defense has played their best game to date.

Way to sack yourself

We are just a comedy of errors

We are the Chokies...this sucks

Man this is just awful stuff

Overall decent game deflating at the end,.

I think one of the biggest knocks on Hooker is that he's not a clutch QB at all, he doesn't have that Tyrod/Logan, even Jerod Evans late game magic

What a complete chokejob today offensively

The only way we win this is with a Miami turnover that our defense scores on.

Not gonna lie, Hooker choked last couple drives

No Herbert no party. Hooker struggles late in games again and we lose another winnable game thanks to awful offensive play calling in the second half.

Not sure you can blame Corny for that last drive.

No, but we can blame him for being in the position where it was a possibility at all.

Get Angry, Bud!

But the 4 conservative drives before that of crap playing calling are on corny.

If King keeps the ball that's going to be ball game...

So done with this Staff

D played very well and Dax really looked great.

Gutless Offensive playcalling gave this away.

Fuente and Brad are mutually awful

you gotta get up and field that... that's 15 yards lost and I'm going to be super pissed if we flat-line at the 50

What is Blackshear doing on the punt return?

not fumbling

Why not just rush 11 if blackshear isn't going to do anything but stand there.

has blackshear fielded 1 punt today? seems like hes let everything hit the ground

Blackshear is not a kick returner. He's scared of the ball.

we dont have time for QB draws

Wtf was that clock management?

burning so much time with no timeouts left

Spending way too much time hoping for a last second fg I imagine

Can't run a draw there

Why the fuck are we standing around with the clock running for 10 seconds after a snap infraction?

How many times can we shoot ourselves in the foot in the 4th quarter?

We are taking way too much time to run these plays

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

If hooker's going to run, it needs to be out of bounds.

that could have easily been called 4th and inches

Offense lost the game

This loss is completely on Cornelson.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

No. It's not.

Some of that was a complete inability to execute on a 2 minute drill.

15 more yards and we're in field goal range.

Bro. Whose job do you think it is to coach up 2 minute drills?

Hokie Club member since 2017

Cornelson can't throw it for Hooker when he's getting sacked.

I know that's not going to be a popular thing to bring up amongst all the coach-bashing that will take over this site at this point, though.

No, but he should know Hookers limitations and strengths and call plays to maximize them instead of putting him in situations where he is likely to fail.

Get Angry, Bud!

We all know them. Not sure what the other option is.

Take advantage of good field position earlier in the game to remove the opportunity to fail later in the game.

Get Angry, Bud!

Cornelson is the QB coach.

Hooker has horrible footwork, zero pocket awareness, and his reads are waaaay too slow.

Cornelson bears no responsibility to develop those things in a guy that has been here 4 years?????

They wouldn't have needed this drive if not for the crap conservative play calling for 4 drives in the end of third and forth qtr. it's on corny.

Who coaches offensive execution? The tooth fairy? Who coached the QB to hold the ball for 5 minutes?

Lol As alum puts it, the Vtkey ride is a wild experience.

Who's job is it to make sure the offense executes?

Recruit Prosim

Corny and Fuente

They both need to go

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

Agreed. Babcock may have an excuse to not fire Fuente because of Covid, but at the absolute least Cornelson needs to go.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

The whole lateral thing never works.

What kind of play was that?

im sure fuente will say thats a play we practice everyday. hes a damn joke

Time to look for a new coach

time to publicly announce we're looking for a new coach

Wasted a good defensive effort. The offensive philosophy is infuriating in crunch time.

Hooker is simply just not clutch

Danny Coale caught it

#MakeTheMove #ItsTimeWhit

Fuente and Corn are completely incompetent.

VT will go nowhere until these dipshits are out of town.

Yes. Wrong fucking coach. It happens

If I'm the defense I'm pissed at how bad the offense was today. Hooker looks lost when forced to throw and cornelson has no idea how to call a 2 minute drill. The offense had FIVE fucking drives to win the game and choked everytime. We ain't going bowling with this awful coaching and qb play

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

Aren't all teams bowl eligible this year since 2020 is stupid?

This. Exactly this.

VT needed ONE freaking scoring drive the last twenty minutes of the game, and the offense couldn't get out of it's own freaking way!

Defense finally plays well and the offense was a complete joke in the second half.

Cornelson was way too conservative at midfield and Hooker has the worst pocket awareness since Glennon.

Yes,that's the Hokie Bird riding a camel. Why'd you ask?

Good effort. Not enough. But good effort by the team. Hooker is weak as a drop back passer - needs to be said. Blacks hear is a steep drop off from Herbert. Herbert is the best player on the team - needed touches in the last 5 min.
