Let's Go!!!

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

Hokies!

I'm ready!

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

orange and maroon glass are on!
we've got a chance, right!?

I seldom speak to loluva grads, but when I do, I tell them I want large fries.

Got my Buffalo Trace. I'm ready for some football.

21-17 Hokies.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

We're going to score THREE touchdowns??

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

Blanche always gets a leg, or at least she thinks she will.

1 offensive, 1 fumble return and another by mistake

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Alright. The offense is done for the night. You're up fumble recovery TD.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Your avatar is so perfect right now.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm ready to get hurt again.

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

edit: trying to have a more positive mindset so let's switch it up to this

In my mind those are two cans of Fightin' Hokies Lager.

Let's win at football tonight!

If the announcer slips and calls us west Virginia or Georgia tech like last week we riot

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

Pry shaved?

Beard energy wasn't working for some reason maybe?

Will take a first down by penalty.

2 good runs by Thomas.

Dear Football Gods,
Please find the sacrifice that HokieEnginerd made acceptable. I will be happy to wear the ceremonial pillow hat if need be. Please accept these offerings in hopes of a Hokie win.
Thank you,

Sack followed up by a false start....great

Edit: back to back false starts

Followed by another false start

What the fuck with these penalties

another false start on the season by Hanson

And that's about all I need to see tonight

DOUBLE FALSE START

Triple

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

Who let Corn in the booth?

3rd and 22...

Hand off

At this point i don't give AF if we have to get kids roaming around campus to play on the OL. Get the effing guys on the bench if they keep jumping offsides. This is ridiculous.

Is coronavirus over yet?

3 false starts on the opening drive. The refs missed a 4th one as well on the third down

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

I think he just felt bad for us.

Or maybe his arm was just tired

3 penalties so far....clearly the bye has helped

I just got up from the couch and got flagged for a false start.

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

So did I.

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

Can't even line up... Pitiful and embarrassing. Penalties and piss poor play calling make this squad unwatchable this year.

In the OL defense, I have been there, it can be loud.

Welp, offense still looks like trash. All self-inflicted with way too many garbage penalties still. Wth. Looking more and more like an OC change or reassignment is warranted.

Well, good to see we ironed out the penalties in the bye week

They mentioned where NC State ranks nationally in penalties, but I'm surprised they didn't mention us. We're lower than them.

they did. we're 116th

Great punt. Now we need a pick 6 to take the lead.

Feels like another game where we need the defense to get takeaways so we can score. In some ways we are going back to the Beamer years...

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

What happened to our punter? He used to drop bombs now I doubt he'd be starting on any other team

Maybe has the yips if he thinks his protection isn't as good as previous seasons, because the guys on the field aren't as good as previous seasons

Long snapper moving him 2-3 steps to the side every time

"That's it guys. Let's get out of here. That cold drink's waitin' on us, let's go." - Mike Young after win no. 300.

I expected a few things from this team but I would've never thought they'd be this undisciplined when it comes to penalty's.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

Bums!!!!

A THIRD FALSE START.

WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK. HOW DO YOU FALSE START ON A GODDAMN PUNT FORMATION? YOU LITERALLY LOOK DOWN THE LINE AT THE LONG-SNAPPER FOR YOUR SIGNAL.

Sorry. Rant mode disengaged.

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

Well....we got two 1st downs. One from them and one from us. Baby steps.

I want to throw the remote through the tv. Three false starts in a game is understandable at a PSU White Out or LSU night game vs Bama. Three in the first drive at NC State?

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

More yards in penalties than on offense. Does that have a familiar ring?

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Extremely generous spot there

Lunging and poor tackling on defense...

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

We got lucky on the facemask no call

LOL that was a blatant facemask, not sure how they miss that

ACC REFS

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

I mean, BLATANT.

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

Refs falling asleep too

Everything looks more blatant in slow mo but yeah that was a penalty

Hokie Club member since 2017

3 missed tackles on that QB run play. Only to match the 3 false starts in the same drive. Now that's consistency.

Pry saying "we got our work cut out for us" lol

Hokie Club member since 2017

I caught that too... I don't even know what to say to be honest.....

Warning- Filter lost.

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

"Grant Wells...he can run with his feet."

Hell of an observation by this announce team.

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

I heard that and started to wonder if we are supposed to be running with our hands and that's our offensive problem...

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Wow, ran it right into the pile third and short

Still can't run the ball for shit

Running out of the shotgun on short yardage situations will be the death of me.

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

Another 3rd and 1 we don't get. Granted NCSUs LBs are good.

JESUS CHRIST I CANT WATCH THIS ARE YOU KIDDING ME

HORSE SHIT

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

And a ANOTHER false start

Everyone in the stadium knows what we are going to do when we line up on O. Unbelievable.

Have a false start?

Moore has the yips

How many times have we needed one damn yard and this team can't make it happen

How many more times do we have to do it from shotgun to realize it ain't workin.

Pry called the coaches out for vanilla play calling and I see no changes after a bye week.

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

I get the desire to build a culture and running the ball, but we don't have the players for it. Change up the tendencies to lighten up the box!

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

Yeah, I don't understand. He's called out play calling and not having the right personnel on the field.

Yet I don't see any changes! He's the leader of this team! He needs to make those changes happen.

Malachi up the middle, malachi up the middle, malachi up the middle. Yeah, Tyler has added some real imagination to the offense in the bye week.

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Over under 45 combined punts!

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

That makes the third terrible spot by the officials....

And there's another false start. I wasn't expecting us to be great this year, but I was expecting this team to be more disciplined... It's disappointing.

At the game, how the heck are we false starting every other play? Are we breathing wrong or are these guys just jumping for no reason?

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

We need to find a new Punter.

No. He had a great year last year. We need to figure out what gotten into his head and get it out of there.

Easy. He knows the people in front of him ain't gonna block and he's scared shitless

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

But he's on a list

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

Or a new ST coach

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

I just don't understand how Moore has gotten so bad at the one thing he needs to do well.

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

Shame to hear they're switching quarterbacks I was liking that guy

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

Just go for it on that 4th and 1. What's the worst that can happen, we go 2-6?

These coaches need to show me something this season, because they are not even a little bit so far. The team is getting worse, cause in point...punting. The penalties are getting out of control

WTF happened to our punt team? Serious regression on that unit and I don't understand why what may have been the best unit on the team to start the season is now bad.

More flags than points tonight?

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

Nice defensive series.

Our best play so far. That NC State punt.

Tyrod did it Mikey, Tyrod did it!!

I am guessing MalACHI UP THE MIDDLE

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

RUNNING INTO THE MIDDLE EVERY GOD DAM FIRST DOWN JESUS BOWEN

Maybe we shouldn't run Malachi every foret down....

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Can we do anything else in the run game?

Thursday Night Football this year

At this point someone needs to be fired. Like, mid game Pry needs to take someone off the staff.

False fucking start again

how do we have so many penalties

Poor coaching...sorry it is what it is

But the cupboard is bare bro /s

They know what we are going to do...and there's another penalty

wide open receiver

Two wide open receives.

maybe time to see what jason brown has.... i wouldn't mind winning a game

Perhaps it's time to move down to FCS where 3* players and 2* coaching can go 5-5.

If he ain't starting by now he just as bad or worse. Might as well put Farrell out there at this point

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

not sure it gets worse

I think the ACC might have to reimburse ESPN for the airtime after the first quarter.

About 5-6 false starts in the first quarter after a bye? I'm out.

Another trips with a dump to the RB in the flat as the primary. What in the world are we doing?

What happened to getting the playmakers (King and Thomas) on the field at the same time?

We put the K in Kwality

King has been injured.

Blumerick, Beck, etc. No reason to rest them. Get your playmakers on the field and put some pressure on the defense. Instead we put 1-2 in, run a slow developing, single-read play and punt.

We put the K in Kwality

And rack up another quarter of hopeless offensive effort brought to you by Tyler Bowen

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Serious question, would huddling to call a play instead of lining up then calling it in help with the false starts? Only thing I can think to reduce the penalties is to reduce time spent lined up?

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

couldn't hurt. I think this would work too.

I seldom speak to loluva grads, but when I do, I tell them I want large fries.

I'm here at a Scottsdale bar with the Hokie alum, after the NC State punt I said "we will punt it from the 50"

It's not even fun to watch. I'm sorry but Pry and his staff have already lost me. I don't mind losing, I've been a Philadelphia sports fan for 3 decades, but watching a team show no improvement is not acceptable. The team doesn't look like they trust him either, to be honest

No we won't. We'll have another false start and end up punting from the 45.

Ok I'm more than willing to be patient, but this many false starts this early is inexcusable and it falls on Pry.

Lack of talent doesn't translate to lack of discipline. That'd coaching.

"... I think he played his nuts off. And you can quote me on that shit."

When your senior-leader-captain is committing these...you're just poorly coached.

We put the K in Kwality

I would say turn false starts into a drinking game..... But that is how we all end...

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

God bless a Chinese chicken!!! There is not enough rum (or whatever beverage of your choice) in the world for the false start drinking game. I think it would deplete the supply.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

During the ODU game, didn't the TV announcers say Bowen's wife just had a baby? Has Bowen been getting any sleep since September? Half joking, half serious.

35 yard punt...on purpose.

We put the K in Kwality

I seriously doubt Pry is going to fire a coach after one year but man Bowen has been disappointing.

Uh oh. They brought in the effective QB. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

NC State seems to have their QB...bad for us

35 yards of offense. 25 yards in penalties. Fu got more from these players. That's a horrible tell

We put the K in Kwality

NC State's OC is making play calls to get his offense in a rhythm. Wish we had an OC who could do that

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

Gotta tackle

Had him stopped on 4th down and didn't bring him down.

That's a senior DL who can't bring down a freshman QB...

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

Dumb penalties, can't block, and can't tackle.

I know we are down on talent but I can't forgive how fundamentally bad we are.

Now talk about the special teams!

Great play by Tisdale

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

...absolutely tricked the RB, was tackled/held, and still got the sack.

We put the K in Kwality

Their offense is also up the middle a lot. Defense is playing well.

Tonight's commentators aren't pulling their punches tonight

Wishing now I had bet the under.

I am guessing Malachi up the middle on first down
Edit: we need to open up the playbook and have a choice of two different plays on first down

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Hey diddle diddle
T Bowe calls it up the middle

We have called NOTHING but runs on 1st down. We are so damn predictable.

Either Bowen is the most predictable/conservative playcaller ever, or they are overboard protecting Wells to keep him from throwing the game away with picks. I honestly don't know which is worse at this point.

And we have no faith in Wells.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Announcers calling it out. Make you look like a profit.

We put the K in Kwality

"If you like punts, you're in the right place."

This is starting to have a definite Russel Athletic Bowl feel.

Technically we won that one.

Or that 2021 VT/NCSU basketball game.

these announcers are so bored with this game

The D is hot...

the O...........is not.

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

Other than that missed tackle by Garbutt, the D has played pretty damn well... I don't care who their QB is. Our offense HASSS to get something going.

I thought the earlier play where Chambers ran through 3 sets of arm tackles to get the 1st Down was the worst play on D so far

Defense is playing hard, offense needs to do something, anything.

This smells like Orlando

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

Run up the middle time ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Gotta keep em on their toes

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

Glad...I...stayed...home!

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

I do like Mullen on the call. Hearing what an excellent play-caller would do and then seeing us never do it is fun.

The man is fucking begging for a play action on first down.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

"Wells throws a great, accurate deep ball".

Why don't you call those plays?

"Uhhhhhh...."

We put the K in Kwality

Well how do you feel about inside zone plays?

This is so miserable; what happened to addressing the vanilla predictable offense?

Gotta hand it to Bowen...you call his Offense Vanilla and he comes back with...sugar-free Vanilla??

Bowen to all VT fans:

Good call

Wells felt the pressure, put his hand on the guy, and then spun away from the pressure in the opposite direction. ๐Ÿ˜… He literally just had to take off in the direction he was already facing...???

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

Wells is not good and he's still starting... im not saying Pry and Bowen are offensive geniuses, but it makes you wonder how bad the other guys have looked in practice...

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Wow. Cannot believe they actually called the hold (pulling down Stro).

We put the K in Kwality

Made the right call to not call Catch interference honestly... Stro was dragged into the guy

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Refs got the punt call right, 24 pulled Stro into the catcher.

That's the best call ACC refs have ever made.

Penalties and punts, MY FAVORITE

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

What a reversal of fortune on that kick. Oh an no false start on that punt.

Wow, a competent call

That'll change.

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

We are definitely going to need a defensive score in this one.

Probably 2

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

My new kittens name.... "Punter".

I seldom speak to loluva grads, but when I do, I tell them I want large fries.

Looks like both teams will reach halftime at even par.

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

Oh God, I just realized....

When we played the worst college basketball game ever played, it was against a ranked NC State

We're about to watch the worst college football game ever played.

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

Not unless we lose 3-0 in double overtime.

Not sure on that spot

Man, the scoring streak is going to be in danger every game this season.

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

Sad leg for this comment.

Hell will freeze over before we get a big play here lol the commentator has had it

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

Dan Mullen can't recruit or run a college program, but the man knows how to run an offense.

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

I would fire Bowen at Halftime, slide Mullen over a few booths and Guarantee you he finds a way to score some points after Halftime

Kind of wish I had bet my house on the under now....

Warning- Filter lost.

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

opportunity missed

If you had done that, that has the potential to be the mother of bad beats.

Good job by mansoor avoiding a late hit

Hokie Club member since 2017

we provide no pass rush or coverage...

Bowen is more predictable on first down than Beamer's teams inside the 10

Did anyone take the Under?

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

I took the negative

Lazy effort by Chatman. I get that he was down but no whistle and Chatman decides 2-hand touch was the way to go.

Mansoor and tisdale are flying all over the field

Hokie Club member since 2017

I swear Mullen is going to nut if someone completes a 20 yard pass.

In his defense he won't be the only one at this rate

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

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

Why is it so easy to pick up 3rd and long against us?

We put the K in Kwality

Both teams are false starting...

The Refs (and everyone else for that matter) just want to get this over ASAP at this point.

3 time outs, 1:47 left, 3 runs and a punt, no problem

We have enough time to get the ball back, quick three-and-out and give them the ball with time to score.

We put the K in Kwality

This game is so for the taking right now...

NCSU: we're not going to lose this one

VT: No, we're not going to lose this one

"You lose" "no, YOU lose" "no, please, I insist"

Warning- Filter lost.

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

I am guessing our two minute offense starts with Malachi up the middle

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

Nah, they ran to the right last time. Run will be to the left for a 1 yd gain.

WHy do we run right, Clements is there...not blocking

Waiting for Mullen to start screaming

At least he validates how we all feel.

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

...bet we have three quick passes (short or incomplete).

We put the K in Kwality

Followed by a 22 yard punt and soft cover 2 defense.

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

Uh oh. Only off by 7 yards on the punt and they immediately complete a pass.

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

lol @ Mullen about the bad offenses

Paraphrasing: "NC State has inexperienced QBS..... and Virginia Tech ... well .... "

Now that we have lulled them to sleep, it is time to strike.

Pretty sure I heard Mullen chuckle a little when the play by play guy said Tech is getting the ball back with 3 timeouts. As if we have a chance of moving down the field.

Does backwards count?

Hire Mullen. Now.

Is he available to start in 20 mins?

I really want to win...but this boring shit is just painful to watch. At least lose trying.

We put the K in Kwality

Great start.

We put the K in Kwality

Someone needs to photoshop this with Malachi and Bowen/Rudolph/Glenn/Pry etc around him and call it Malachi in the Middle.

Shades of the 2014 Wake Forest game.

Do you get an extra award if every offensive lineman has a false start penalty before the end of the game?

Real-life Xbox achievement...

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Pretty sure it's a steam achievement. Probably called Twitchy.

Pass on first down. Is that even allowed?

We put the K in Kwality

how in the world does the center false start

...and another penalty.

We put the K in Kwality

I just don't get all the False starts... So bad. When I coached HS football we never had a game as bad as the one's VT has had this year. Where is the discipline??

Is coronavirus over yet?

This OLine sucksssssss.

If you feel the leather in your hand let it rip.

Not in sync on the offensive side, ,,,, I have stronger works for it.

How in the hell do you get 7 false starts in a half?

Especially after a WEEK AND A HALF TO GET READY! after your head whistle says we need to have the coaches be accountable on offense and do better. It's fucking mind boggling. Yet I got shit for saying Bowen needs to go a month ago. Go figure.

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

And we couldn't even run out 1:30 to just escape the half when our D is keeping us alive. Fucking pathetic.

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

We have more false starts than pass attempts!

We put the K in Kwality

ESPN: No FBS game this season has gone to halftime 0-0

VT: Hold our Heineken 0

7 false starts

Going for the RECORD!!!! wooo hoooo

Welp...another 20 second possession.

Anything Pry has to say from this game on is white noise.

Saving our timeouts for the off season.

We put the K in Kwality

Soooo what is the record for most false starts by one team in a game?

Achievement unlocked - most false starts in a half!

If Grant Wells is our QB next season, we are in trouble.

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

We're in trouble now!

It could be Mike fuckin Vick in his prime and we'd be in trouble. This o-line can't even snap the ball or not false start.

VB born, class of '14

Yea. I think Wells is probably a fine QB when there's a half decent OL and some skill talent. He's definitely not good enough to manage a bad offense.

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

This is really bad.

Ngl. I hate college football

I must have read a thousand faces
I must have robbed them of their cause
Sickened thirst, Sickened thirst
Keeps it together
Soft white glow in the cranium
A bullseye made sedated

Time to pull Wells and try something new!

We may not score any points if we pull our starter. Oh...wait.

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

48 yards and 2 first downs for the half... ooof Defense is playing their nuts off, wish the offense could do anything

Go for it

our new two minute offense...multiple false starts and a shitty snap

This offensive line is absolute trash

It really is

Goddammit. Our offense is just INEPT. We can't snap the ball. Block. Run. Move an inch to either side. We don't look like we've ever played football before. And it's the 8th game of the season.

We put the K in Kwality

This ain't coaching at this point. I'm questioning our players cognitive abilities. I'm running out of fingers and toes counting false starts.

Sorry it is completely coaching at this point.

I've never coached anyone older than 10 years old in football and I'm pretty goddamn confident I could find a way to put an offensive line together who could somewhat block and not false start every other down.

my friend you might be surprised. You could put 1 of those things together for sure, but 2 is pretty hard.

Same team that didn't make those mistakes last season.

We put the K in Kwality

This is ridiculous

I was hoping to see some improvement, or really any improvement on offense by this point. But man...

Everything is bad. Roll out the entire 2nd team O after the half.

I...want...history...0-0

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

Only if Pry recreates the Beamer WF pose.

Pry needs to bench some people even if it costs the game. There have to be some expectations in terms of what is and isn't acceptable. This is the year to do it.

My eyes are bleeding

Danny is always open

Would we be in the lead with Corn as OC tonight?

Whenever the B1G calls...it'll be because of this game. We're built for that 11am B1G West kickoff.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

This is just inept on too many levels. I can't watch this much more. Either we put Farrell in and just run some read option type plays and say yolo or just forfeit the rest of the year. This is just sub-awful.

Seriously? That's as far we can punt a football now?

What happened to Moore's stellar punting?

Well with Moore punting they should be in FG range instantly.

Defense is going to have force a turnover in field goal range to have a chance of even scoring points.

What a punt......๐Ÿคฅ

Warning- Filter lost.

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

Dude what the hell is with Moore?!? Has he been sitting in with the offensive coaches?

No confidence in either the snap or blocking

Moore is gun shy; I bet he hates Holt's punt formation

Really need to drop that formation it ain't it

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

What is going on with Peter Moore? Absolutely terrible

Fire Bowen, this offense is beyond shit

They're gonna score with time left on the clock.

We put the K in Kwality

He did punt from the goal line

So close.

Damn right through Delane's hands

Delane is going to be a great one

If we can keep him out of the Portal

Delane Be GOOD. Offense be BAD

Can the defense tackle? What is going on? Are we playing 2 hand touch

QB is carrying the ball like a loaf of bread. Just asking for a strip

Would be nice

Delane is going to be good.

oh Dax should've made that

Need a sack here.

Did I see that right? 7 first half false starts is the most in FBS in the last 5 years???

Absolutely awful

Go for it

I'm hopeful for Pry, but he needs to establish discipline of the players, so many penalties that are re-occurring in a game and week after week.

Matt Barrie sounds like a defeated man who is questioning what decisions in life led him to this point.

He may need a few Lexapro at Halftime to make it to the end

That's what 2022 VT Football has become.

I can't be bothered being mad at that time out call.

We have zero points in the half. This offense is a dumpster fire.

Careful....don't blame the OC or you'll be literally be told to (with all due respect) 'shut the fuck up'

I think that already happened.

Right now Bowen, Holt, and Rudolph aren't earning their paychecks...I know it's taboo to criticize the staff here, but tell me how the OL and Punt units have progressively performed worst during the season, while Bowen has been lost all year. The mistakes tonight are totally self inflicted and not a "they're better than us" situation. And this is coming off a bye week....

Know I might get some downvotes and that's fine, but this is maddening to me.

Why should you be chastized for stating the obvious truth? If they can get bonuses for stellar performance, shouldn't the opposite also be true?

+1

Right on buddy. Upvote for you. I got shit for saying Bowen wasn't cutting it a month ago.

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

Can't believe they've already shown all the highlights of our game.

The fact that anything was considered a "highlight" is impressive.

Defense ain't jumping offsides...there is literally zero good coaching on offense/St Rn

I am having flashbacks to the VT vs Wake Forest Game. No one wants to win!

46 1st half yards says all you need to know.

Our ineptitude on the line and protections has Peter Moore seeing ghosts out there. ๐Ÿ‘ป

Cannot believe we have to get 2 safeties to win this.

We put the K in Kwality

I told myself if we were down by two scores or more at the half, I'd stop watching and go to jiu jitsu class. guess I'm staying and watching.....ok I'm making excuses because I'm tired

The penalties are on one guy - coach Pry. Seems like a good dude, but he has not instilled any kind of discipline or rhythm to this offense. It is bad coaching. The defense is getting after it though.

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

I'm enjoying The Amazing Race right now.

I am just hoping for some points now. Well, I am hoping we come out slinging it like Aaron Rodgers was the QB, but I am a little more realistic.

If you saw him play the Commies this weekend you wouldn't want our QB to look like that.

We put the K in Kwality

Classic Rodgers

D was on the field 2/3 of the half. When they get tired and torched in the second half, please don't rip them. Our O does nothing to support good defense...we can't even run the clock and try to shorten the game.

We put the K in Kwality

WOW! a first down! Haven't seen that in a long while

2 in a row. That's a streak.

This confirms my opinion the Fuente was actually a very good x and os guy, but a horrible relations guy. Nail in his coffin. He would get more out of these players on the field - but then they'd all transfer.

It's called an Orfenst.

Touchdown! !!!

Who replaced Bowen?

LOL!! We have them right where we wanted them. Lull NCState to be complacent with our inept-ness. Then start playing! Now for the defense to for a quick 3-and-out

What the hell just happened! White scored!

That drive was nice. Why would you keep that in your back pocket? Makes no sense

We did it! We scored 2 field goals on one drive. Is that a record?

Woah, a SIX point play?? Why haven't we seen that this year??

Did Pry threaten to fire Bowen at the half if he didn't change the playcalls?

โ€œAlso, a microwave has never danced it's ass off to Jackie Wilson.โ€ - AssPocketFullOWhiskey

Maybe it wasn't a threat?

Streak is intact. Goes back to a 10-0 loss to Cindy to go 0-2 to start, what turned out to be the magical 1995 season.

That Pry was a part of.

Loving all these sarcastic posts after the TD.

Did we just get a fully dipped pussy touchdown?! Man it's been so long! ๐Ÿคฃ

Seems like the opposite. We lay back giving them the first down yardage and try (unsuccessfully) to close.

More false starts! At least that one was NCST

That is at least their third false start. They have a ways to go to catch up to us.

Will be interesting to see if we learned from our success or we go back to run on first and second down m, throw on third and punt.

Did that break the plane ?

Sure looked like it (well beyond).

Me too.

If the next drive isn't 2 runs up the middle and a flat rout short of the sticks on 3rd down I'll be convinced he was canned.

WHo is this team?!?! Where they the same team from the 1st half?

I would LOVE to know why Pry said in that locker room at the half

I'm pretty sure that was an intentional false start to set up the big play

Wells came out hot in the 2nd half

Yep

If we can get one more stop here and a sustained drive we are in a good spot for an upset

I get it now; use the usual second half game plan in the first half so they don't have anything to adjust at halftime; THEN use the first half plan in the second half. 3D chess!

Unleash the D on the freshman QB!!!

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

I figured Pry told Bowen he was walking back unless we scored some points.

For the first time in FOREVER, the D can pin their ears back and get after the QB

Love that Houston signals first down, being two yards short and a holding call.

Seriously what is with these play calls? Why can't we do this all season...or even the first half?

I don't think Bowen has any confidence in the offense and Pry told him he has to open it up.

Think we left Bowen in the locker room.

Maybe he got Coach Kilmer'd

The o-line is gassed! They haven't been on the field this long all game.

You misspelled "season"

ROTFLMAO! Touch! That would be more accurate, thanks for the correction

Not a bad series. Moved the ball, some creative plays that softens the D, ran some clock.

We put the K in Kwality

Some smart calls by Wells. He played smart football on that drive. It could have been a lot worse.

Yeah. The scrambling, keeping his eyes downfield and choosing to throw away was really nice to see.

We put the K in Kwality

Can someone fill me in on what the fuck happened to our punter

think he's uncomfortable with the long snapper and protection scheme, throws his timing off

He's tired

D is jacked. 2 score lead and some confidence in the offense.

We put the K in Kwality

And D held.

240 yds of offense in the 3rd quarter so far.

Pry is struggling to know what to do in a lead with a good margin! Lovin' it. hopefully it's just the beginning

You can't convince me this is Bowen calling plays in the 3rd Q.

21 points and there is still 4 minutes left in the quarter.

The most surprising thing about these 3 scores is that it's been long fields.

This has probably been said here but I'd bet money on Brad Glenn calling plays in the second half

Literally left my in-laws at half and just got home. What in the world happened??

False starting our way on to victory, that's what.

You stopped watching the game.

Nothing. Go back.

Somebody different has to be calling the plays in the 2nd half. Because it has been much better.

We got no pressure that entire drive. Only rushed 3-4. He had all day to sit back and read the field. Need to blitz again. It was working.

Someone tell the D, that just cause the offense has a pulse doesn't mean you shit the bed.

Did we stop blitzing on that possession? Why? Also, Harvey has gotten beat on that route for a TD for three times this year now.
