Let's GOOO!

HOOOKIES!

Fuck Hugh Freeze. Did I do it right?

I hate rude behavior in a man. Won't tolerate it.

Stellar execution

I've never seen a combined tweet like that. (edit: it shows up as "Liberty Football βœ… & Virginia Tech Football βœ… " in the app)

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

It's a newer feature. You can co-tweet basically, so both parties approve it and it shows as going from both accounts.

I AM WILLING DUB NUMBER THREE INTO EXISTENCE

Nice work, where has that will been the last seven?

"Don't go to, go through"

Liberty puts the student section in the first few front rows right behind the visitor bench. Why am I not surprised by that.

Hokie Club member since 2017

We used to do the same thing. Corps of Cadets used to sit right behind the visiting bench. We moved my sophomore year bc of new league rules.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

Fuck this whole ass thing.

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

I hate this game. I think we'll get blown out, but I'm here for it. Hopefully we'll see some progress in some way today.

Is coronavirus over yet?

No names on the jerseys....okay

OMG WE BLOCKED THE LAST GUY STRAIGHT INTO OUR RETURNER

To be fair, Beck could have made it to the edge and beaten everyone down the field.

Is coronavirus over yet?

He probably scores there if we don't throw the last guy straight into him lol.

At least my ESPN+ app doesn't keep randomly dropping the game and going back to the home screen

wow first game of the year I am unable to watch. Banished to ESPN+, and no I don't want to pay 99.99 a year to watch this one game. Funny thing is I had it scheduled to record on some channel and we apparently got booted by Bally for something else, which seems, well, appropriate

The LewDew, Professional Golf Bum

What an AWFUL spot

Is coronavirus over yet?

Honestly, think we did it to ourselves. Lofton fighting for the spot after getting pushed backwards probably cost us the forward progress that would have been right around the line to gain.

I think if he's just driven back there he gets the forward progress...but he broke free and made a football move. But I'm no official. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

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

Classy AF

liberty's QB looks like a chipmunk.

2 time Longwood grad married to a Hokie.

Gonna be annoyed if Holloway's redshirt gets burned to just fair catch some punts today.

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

Pry and Co. Didn't have a choice. He and his family have told coaches they don't want him to redshirt.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Join us in the Key Players Club

Then he needs to work into the WR rotation.

We put the K in Kwality

Yep just hope they work him in at receiver today and can get him out in space.

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

*shrug* Holloway and his parents want him to play

We don't need to be concerned about whether Holloway is here in 2026 or not, imo.

I moved my good chair to the corner for this game and I have to say, it's actually a pretty nice view.

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

The bigotry they are, the weller they fall

I thought the ACCN commercials were terrible.

We put the K in Kwality

Another week of watching the game being illegally streamed on YouTube.

Wells with awareness to avoid the sack. Damn.

We put the K in Kwality

Some else calling plays today???

We put the K in Kwality

If Gallo had jets that would've been a TD lol

Halloway had a nice block set for him at the goal line.

We put the K in Kwality

Stupid play by Wells. Scramble then throw it out the back of the EZ. Don't take a 10 yard sack.

We put the K in Kwality

Meh, sack there doesn't really matter as long as its not so significant that it knocks you out of field goal range. It's better than risking a turnover by forcing a pass that isn't there.

I disagree. It's situational awareness. You can throw the ball 20 rows into the stands. He was outside the pocket and as long as it crossed the LOS.

Luckily the penalty bailed us out.

We put the K in Kwality

TD! Hopefully not the last of the day!!!!

We put the K in Kwality

Nice drive and way to finish. Thanks Liberty for the redo on third down.

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

Good drive

Nice to get a TD early. Solid drive too. Let's keep it going!

Get ready for ten straight non scoring drives! 🀣

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

The having scored points streak lives to see another game

I guess it's ok to say, praise Jesus! 🀣

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

Why the hell can't we snap a FG or punt? Been shaky since the first game.

We put the K in Kwality

We were spoiled with Oscar Shadley

Wells is an idiot. I want him gone.

Even when you get skunked; fishing never lets you down. 🎣

Not how I would describe it, but I would certainly prefer an upgrade at the QB position next year as well.

He's being asked to play a system he wasn't recruited for.

We put the K in Kwality

The same applies to everyone on offense.

He was recruited by this staff to this offense

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

Incorrect. He was recruit for the system we ran in the spring and the first half of the year. We adjusted to an RPO system, that's not his game (but he is better at it than Brown).

We put the K in Kwality

Gotta get pressure. Too much room in the secondary.

We put the K in Kwality

LOL they just gave their TE two extra yards on that spot!

Bill Roth: "That's something new, Tech didn't get inside the 20 last week..."

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

Didn't we in the 2H when we didn't convert the fourth down?

We put the K in Kwality

.. Good job D, ... Now let's put more points on the board. I like that.

Sounds like my typical Saturday. Baby!

We put the K in Kwality

I am already fuming we are playing at Liberty.

I'll settle for a couple of first downs, moving the ball. Get in a rhythm.

We put the K in Kwality

...or two yards and 3-and-out.

We put the K in Kwality

You'll get a three and out and you'll be happy that it wasn't a turnover /s

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

This is what we've become.

We put the K in Kwality

So we've already benched King again?

We put the K in Kwality

This is the part where the offense goes dormant for three quarters, right?

Of course we don't get the loose ball.

We put the K in Kwality

Fucking Chatman

At least it wasn't his first blown coverage

We put the K in Kwality

That Douglas kid is having a bad time.

How many BLATANT holds are not going to get called??

Is coronavirus over yet?

So bad

Hokie Club member since 2017

Really well executed hold on the DE.

We put the K in Kwality

I'm not the only one that saw that then? It looked like he just full on grabbed the hell out of him.

Damn, would have been a huge pick there to kill their momentum.

It's alarming how much better coached and better executing Liberty's offense looks. We absolutely have to make a change on that side of the ball this off-season, something, anything.

Laziest corner blitz I've ever seen coming from Chatman on that last play

I saw better effort from Albert haynesworth when he was in the league.

He would have bounced off him anyway!

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

At least they made it looks easy.

We put the K in Kwality

How could I see a QB draw coming on that and none of the players or coaches seem too?

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

Wow. Was it super obvious to anyone else how they were setting up that run? Jfc

I mean we've only been giving it up for 4 straight weeks.

We put the K in Kwality

This is where the wheels fall off, right?

Is coronavirus over yet?

Suboptimal defensive possession there

It was, but there were blatant holds in front of the ref on two of those 3rd down plays. Not sure how those weren't flagged.

Is coronavirus over yet?

You could see that qb draw coming from a mile away!

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

Terrible tackle "attempt" on that. Reach out your arms and get posterized stiff arm.

We put the K in Kwality

Shit, here we go

Beck is the fastest man on the field. Line him up as WR!!!

We put the K in Kwality

King with a big play. Time to sit him for the rest of the game.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Oh, look...King back in for a big play.

We put the K in Kwality

Great block by 86

No idea where Wells was going with that one

And King pops a massive run. Why wasn't he starting the game? Terrible personnel decisions on O.

So...if you get King outside, he can break a decent run off, who'd have thunk it.

Jalen not sure what to do with open field

I honestly feel bad for the guy. He's been a true Hokie his entire career!

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

And Holston tackles himself.

Holston slips and falls🀦🏻 If king had that hole it woulda been 6

Hokie Club member since 2017

Holston didn't know what to do after no contact...lol

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

Situational awareness.

We put the K in Kwality

Now that was a truly horrific decision

He thought Parker clements was the TE

Hokie Club member since 2017

Wells is a fucking idiot

Holy crap he had Holstein in the flats. Wtf

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Boneheaded play by Wells. Just killed our FG chances.

what an incredibly dumb play

It was a terrible play call to start. Nothing they've done leads you to think a screen would work. The intentional grounding was actually smarter than taking a sack.

We put the K in Kwality

Also if we don't find another QB next year, nothing else we do is going to matter.

Yeah it would be nice to have continuity at QB, but this guy ain't it

Agreed. People say QBs get too much credit/blame but I really don't think so

Hokie Club member since 2017

The whole fucking offense had no idea what they were doing.

Why the F didn't he just toss it to Holston at the start of the play??? He had nobody on him

I thought that was the planned play.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

It was a screen call. Idea is to chip the rush, let them pass and then throw over them. OL forgot to touch anyone. Wells had no chance. Only thing he could've done better was take a knee as soon as when saw the screen blown up.

We put the K in Kwality

I hope we just take the points here. We are doing a decent job moving the ball. But a stop on fourth is momentum change.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

It would be progress 🀣

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

Wow

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

I mean why not

The kicker option play. I love it.

Really ballsy play call! Like us playing with nothing to lose at this point.

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

Running a fake on Liberty? Let's go lol

FAKE!!!

First smart ST call this year.

We put the K in Kwality

Most creative thing I've seen out of the offense/special teams all year!

So King just has a nice run then he sits until the series.

We put the K in Kwality

LET'S GO

HOKIES!

HOKIES!!!

We put the K in Kwality

TD Holston.

Wow. Just wow. Hurry up and go for it on fourth. Pry finally found his balls.

We put the K in Kwality

Got some fight in us today!

...but we still have the 2H.

We put the K in Kwality

Even the kicker is out here breaking tackles!

So we're just going to let Black and Duke transfer because we're playing a senior.

We put the K in Kwality

I assume Duke has played in 4 games so they're saving his redshirt? No reason not to IMO.

"GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM LITTLE BROTHER, THE CUP IS COMIN’ ON HOME!”

πŸ™„ it's dukes first year.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Chance Black sucks, he's gone anyways.

Duke is a freshman...

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

This offense is way more fun when we can run the ball.

EDIT: maybe I haven't noticed it before, but this tweak with Gallo motioning in to block on a Duo run is pretty interesting. Liberty is starting to catch on, but it's helped pop a few runs now.

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

We keep running this play and I'm not sure if we've seen a single counter off of it.

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

Clean snap on XP. I'm happy.

We put the K in Kwality

I wonder if we were saving that fake for UVA, but given that we might not play the game, Pry called it here.

It's pretty sweet to have a freshman kicker that athletic.

Damn. That sack was HARD

We put the K in Kwality

Give me moar

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

We put the K in Kwality

Lawson needs to play more. He's really growing through the year. Starting to get head away from his feet.

We put the K in Kwality

He's going to be a huge piece of the puzzle as it relates to the rebuilding process, but right now he's completely lost out there (for the most part). I suspect, now that they seem to have settled on his position, he'll grow leaps and bounds this off season.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Keli Lawson is a part of our future

If he can put on some lbs and keep his speed. Damn.

We put the K in Kwality

Like the aggression from Conner attacking the Qb there. Even though he didn't make the tackle, he slowed him down and prevented a big gain.

I also believe Marve is calling the D today. Which probably has helped free up Pry to help with game/clock management better.

This is what I was gonna ask. It looks like he is from the camera.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Pry said Marve was ready for it, but wouldn't say if he was actually going to be calling today at his pressers. It's past time, so I hope he's giving him a shot today.

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

Does anyone else think Marve might be calling the defense? Coming out of that kickoff they showed Pry a couple times without a play sheet in front of him with his mic up and cut to Marve looking at a play sheet talking into the mic.

Edit: Drink

Nice defensive series, there.

Does Marve has any eligibility left? Dude looks like he could suit up and okay today...losing the glasses, of course.

We put the K in Kwality

The glasses give him the early Bud Foster jacked-up nerd look, and I'm all about it.

16 yard punt... I'll take it

Did we flip the punters curse?

We put the K in Kwality

Noticed our LT?

We put the K in Kwality

Slid Danz down to RT and playing Chaplin.

We put the K in Kwality

Blue you're my boy!

Blue has had two nice catches today

VT +140 to score first πŸ’²πŸ’²

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

Two players who really, and I mean really stood out on the sideline when I was at the GT game: Keli Lawson and Xavier Chaplin. They look different than the guys around them.

DaeQuan Wright lets go!!! MORE TO HIM

He needs to play. A LOT. More.

We put the K in Kwality

Especially with this offense's clear emphasis on TE usage. He's the kind of guy who can be a difference maker.

Houston is just not a receiver. Doesn't have the body motion to adjust.

We put the K in Kwality

Most RBs in the country wouldn't have been able to catch a 100mph fastball from a QB. It hit him in the hands, so yes, technically he should have made the catch. But that was on Wells. He has zero touch.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Not necessarily that okay. Just in general. He doesn't adjust to the ball (typically turns the wrong way, instead of upfield). He should be in on passing downs.

We put the K in Kwality

Dzansi was going to kill someone on that QB run...but there no one there.

We put the K in Kwality

He still ended up putting a Liberty player on their backside.

I love it. He needs to be aggressive and move forward. Too often he is on his heals, passive. That's when he gets cooked.

We put the K in Kwality

That was a crappy 3rd down call

I would have liked to have seen a TE drag route there.

Would have liked to have seen something to the far side with king just outrunning people

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

All the momentum and made a scared call.

I wanna be Lenny Kravitz when I grow up.

We put the K in Kwality

Annnndddd, special teams strikes again.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Oh good.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Son of a bitch...

Fire Stu Holt into the sun

Here we go again. 2 score lead and then just immediately implode.

And that's why we can't have nice things

Our typical 2nd half collapse is coming a bit early today.

And least this gives the defense some extra time to breathe before the next drive

Stu Holt and Bowen really need to be looking around...

Will be a big test if Pry can make the needed changes Fuente couldn't

Hokie Club member since 2017

Won't happen this year or next. Only hope is for adjustments.

We put the K in Kwality

Yeah that's true

Hokie Club member since 2017

If we don't make changes because of money, after announcing the Reach program and putting a ton more funding into the assistants pool, because we overpaid unqualified coaches and have to hang on from them, that will probably be the biggest signal to me that this program is done.

Except they both have three year contracts.

We put the K in Kwality

What's the opposite of Beamerball?

Hokie Club member since 2017

Stuball

Is coronavirus over yet?

Lots of complaints through the year about Bowen as OC, but our special teams have been by and large pretty poor outside of Tucker Holloway's one game.....

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

The offense needs work, but if anyone needs to go it's holt.

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

And I think that game was less about our ST and Holloway, and more about the GT kicked outkicking his coverage. You could tell a big return was coming after the first two punts.

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

Apparently kick-out block means block in the back.

We put the K in Kwality

Additionally, apparently "stay in your lane" means create space for the runner and be especially careful to not tackle him.

Is coronavirus over yet?

I miss the days when our kickoff guys would just blast them past the endzone consistently

Wind looks pretty strong in that stadium. Sucks, as we'll be facing this direction in the 4Q as well

Microcosm of the entire season right there.

Develop some momentum...then implode spectacularly.

Stu holt can find his own way home. Worst special teams I've ever seen at Tech

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

I bet Jordan Love makes that tackle...

Need to answer strong right here

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

I have emotionally prepared myself for run, run, sack.

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

Run sack sack work for you? Granted after s nice set of downs but ooooooooofuh

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

Oh look, King with a big reception.

We put the K in Kwality

This is going to get really ugly in the second half. again.

Updog for life!

Look at our 4th quarter scoring differential on the season... (source)

Most of the time it has been because the offense can't eat clock and the defense is absolutely gassed in the fourth.

Couple good runs by King.... get him out of there

"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.

As requested. Holston comes in and gets tackled for loss.

We put the K in Kwality

Liberty with the Virginia Tech tackling technique

We put the K in Kwality

...and Wells takes forever and gets sacked.

We put the K in Kwality

Step up into the pocket and throw the damn ball.

We put the K in Kwality

Pretty good throw by Wells... Smith needs to give that some better effort

Throw the damn ball!!!!

We put the K in Kwality

Shitty call, shitty read, shitty result

We are allergic to doing anything well. Got a couple big plays, a good start to the game, go up a couple scores? TIME TO PANIC

King's fault for not scoring on the long pass.

We put the K in Kwality

Our offensive line is the worst I have seen in over 20 years of being a fan. And it isn't even close.

It's not great, but it's not even in the same conversation with those OL's from Curt Newsome. Those were by far the worst ever.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Newsome's teams on the average were extremely bad but you compare Newsome's worst line to this line and this line is easily worse.

Tyrod covered a lot of his ineptitude

We put the K in Kwality

Liberty scores here.

Liberty gets the ball coming out of the half.

Liberty scores again.

28-17 before we know it.

Is coronavirus over yet?

WRs can hold regardless, right?

We put the K in Kwality

Guess so. Cause they've done it on back to back plays.

We put the K in Kwality

Let's see if we can keep a team from scoring right before half.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Need a stop here. I'm more nervous on third and long than short.

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

Heck of an effort my Garbutt. Same thing happened last week and Dax got left in the dust.

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

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

Great result on that play, but HUGE hold by the LT

Is coronavirus over yet?

Holding doesn't exist today. That much has been made clear.

Huge play by Garbutt. Definitely thought the QB had an easy first.

Nice play by Garbutt!

QB change for Liberty. Hmmm

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Held on to Garbutt's face mask for dear life there

Workman-like defensive stand there to shutdown a drive. Something we haven't seen so far this season when momentum started swinging hard the other direction.

Can we just avoid giving the ball back to them before halftime?

Not feeling good about our odds at the moment.

Nope

We put the K in Kwality

Probably not

Have to have one of the worst point differentials inside of two minutes in the half/game.

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

Oh ffs....

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Throw. The. Damn. Ball.

It's like he's waiting until the perfect opening. Run some timing plays and "throw the guy open".

We put the K in Kwality

Man, wells is just so darn hesitant about everything he does. Brutal.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

Wells simply does not see the field at all.

Is coronavirus over yet?

One silver lining, we'll have over 21:10 in TOP if we have the ball going into halftime. A rested defense should help a lot

if we have the ball going into halftime

This offense is apparently not capable

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

Like someone said earlier, continuity at QB would be nice, but Wells really isn't it. I will gladly eat crow if he comes back next year and balls out.

"GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM LITTLE BROTHER, THE CUP IS COMIN’ ON HOME!”

Peter Moore found his groove again there. What a boom.

He started skipping practice.

We put the K in Kwality

Sick punt

For all of the conversation, of which I've been a part, about whether or not Pry will make it, this much is clear - Liberty is as or more athletic/talented than this VT squad.

Is coronavirus over yet?

"there you are Peter..."

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

"Great punt". Not something we've heard a lot about is this year.

We put the K in Kwality

There's the old Peter Moore.

What a punt by Moore!

Moore got his swag back today

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

Terrible PI call

We put the K in Kwality

You know it's bad when the commentators say it's wrong

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

Lol of course

Horseshit penalty there

WR ran back into DB to initiate contact.

We put the K in Kwality

Awful call.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

Weak PI call!

That's a stupid PI. Conner was the one looking for the ball...

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

Weird how we suddenly can't get any pressure.

We put the K in Kwality

Tough when they keep moving the pocket and throwing quick outs.

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

And when our DTs are getting tackled.

We put the K in Kwality

His knee was down.

We put the K in Kwality

But it wasn't holding. Tripping.

We put the K in Kwality

They nailed the tripping call, but haven't called a single holding call yet today? What the actual hell is going on lol.

Not. A. One.

We put the K in Kwality

LOL they really don't want to call holding

Edit: drink

Wont call a hold, but called a trip.

It's not like the holding is right in front of them or anything.

We put the K in Kwality

How does our defense allow almost every team to score right before half. Ffs

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Only a full 2 quarters of the offense going flaccid today. Believe it or not that's an improvement.

Stop me if you've heard this before...we've outplayed the other team this half. But we're not winning.

We put the K in Kwality

I want to be happy that we are competing today as I expected a blowout (which is still on the table), however its Liberty...

Is coronavirus over yet?

Why the hell wasn't the clock running? I know they got the first but that ball was set 10 seconds before they snapped the ball.

I didn't realize Liberty had MB12s little brother on the team.

This angers me.

"GO BACK TO YOUR ROOM LITTLE BROTHER, THE CUP IS COMIN’ ON HOME!”

Yeah. It's his third school in three years. He was advised to retire due to concussions (6!), so he transferred. ...and got hurt.

We put the K in Kwality

Pretty sure he transferred from a Texas school. I don't think he should be playing football with his concussion history.

Baylor. Utah. Liberty.

We put the K in Kwality

And our offense can't sustain a drive when they need to. Like I don't even need points just get a first down.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

2-8. Take a knee. Don't even try to score.

We put the K in Kwality

Running a dive play three straight times, while not running down any clock is Bowen's version of this

That kickoff looked out of bounds

Laundry list for off-season:

1. Move on from Stu Holt. Special teams are putrid

2A. Move on from Bowen. Not ready to be OC at this level. But may be too expensive to move on from/too much collateral damage with other staff to bring in experienced OC, so;

2B. Reassign Bowen to TE/Co-OC and make Glenn Co-OC and playcaller/primary scheme guy. If still bad we can shake up O staff after year 2 and bring in a new guy.

3. Find an impact transfer portal QB. Wells ain't it.

4. 2-3 portal WR, 2-3 portal OL, perhaps a RB if one is out there, focus on DL and secondary for D transfers

2B is more likely than 2A.

If we've learned anything over the past several years, Portal QBs are a crap-shoot (not just at VT).

We have to try. Wells is a known quantity and I don't see him becoming a game changer suddenly. If nothing else we need competition.

I heard Tennessee ended up with a good one. 🀣

True, but they didn't know it at the time. It took an injury to the starter for Hooker to get a chance.

So we open up the second half and kick it short to the one player who we don't want touching the ball...

Is coronavirus over yet?

Big 3rd down play here! Need to stop em!

So now we don't have Halloway receiving punts?

We put the K in Kwality

He looked like he got nicked up on the punt he returned in the first half

Get Wells out of the game. SMH

Is coronavirus over yet?

Seriously. Why is he holding the ball in the EZ.

We put the K in Kwality

He didn't have time to even get a chance to throw it. They should have rolled him out so he could throw it away if he needed. If he throws it away there, its grounding and still a safety.

Depends on where the ball goes

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

Of you're going to run a delayed handoff, you have to block the DE.

We put the K in Kwality

That explains the Duke approach backed up last week πŸ™„

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

Pocket awareness is non-existent

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

His strength is throwing the ball. Throw. The. Damn. Ball.

We put the K in Kwality

So this is going to go well...

I really don't want to watch Wells under center anymore

Wells and Bowen are hot garbage. No awareness at all from Wells, no one at all to pick up the blitz off the edge. Just unacceptable.

Is this rock bottom? Please tell me this is rock bottom.

Bob: What would ya say ya do here?

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

I'd say yes, but I thought we had hit rock bottom a few times before this.

0 wins does seem like an achievable low for us

It's like we have success early, then out those plays in the shredder and refuse to go back to them.

Remember the RPO, zone runs, TE drag across the middle? Gone.

We put the K in Kwality

My theory is Glenn is setting things up early and then Bowen comes in and stinks up the joint.

Bet we don't come back after this. Game is done.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

The way the team is sticking with Wells when he's clearly not good enough and the team is already 2-8 tells me Bowen won't be going anywhere we're gonna be stuck with this shit again next year. This is awful

Go for it

Who do you want to play? Brown is even worse and the two youngsters aren't ready.

I want one of the Freshman playing as many snaps as possible. They should have been playing since at least the Duke game to save the redshirt and let them play the rest of the year. Our season is over, Wells is not the answer, at least if we play the Freshman now and don't land a portal QB this off-season the freshman has some reps starting next year, because if this teams trots Wells out again next year we're gonna be winning 2 games again

Go for it

QBs are like starting pitchers. If you put them in too soon, you absolutely wreck their confidence. Its one of the reasons MV7 was redshirted and he could have started as a freshman.

Our younger guys aren't ready. Its a disservice to the rest of the team to start somebody whose not ready and basically give up. That would be the coaching staff quitting on the team.

Wells might be the worst QB we have started in 40 years

This is my school
This is home

Were you there for Noel?

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

We don't love dem Hoos.

You beat me to it. I was going to reply "Grant Noel would like a word".

We put the K in Kwality

I'd definitely put Wells somewhere above Noel though for maybe second worst. I'd even give Sean Glennon the edge.

Sean Glennon won a lot of games for us. His talent wasn't as a scrambling quarterback and the offensive lines that he had did him in.

Ut Prosim Ad Dei Gloriam

I would compare Glennon and Wells on their ability to hold to ball too long. I remember SG holding the ball forever against GT and taking 100 sacks. And don't get me started on the Peach Bowl.

We put the K in Kwality

Sean definitely had frustrating moments for sure, but he did win a lot of games for us. We were pretty anemic offensively in 2006 but we still won 10 games, and even though he and Tyrod split a lot of time in 2007 he still started the bulk of the time and came up big in the Miami, UVA, and ACC Championship games (think he was even player of the game in that one). Had very good arm talent.

Holding all day on that return but whatever

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

So we run down the field, find blockers, attack said blockers and pay very little attention to the person with the ball.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Does Holt even instruct our coverage team that they can tackle the returner? It's like they think they have to hold them in position for someone else to tackle.

We put the K in Kwality

every LU player looks stronger and faster than the VT counterpart

Probably are. We are that lacking in talent. I am beginning to think it will be year 3 before we see a winning season again.

Which players selected Liberty over us? We're undeveloped. Not untalented.

We put the K in Kwality

Not saying they were direct h2h crootin battles, but rashaud pernell and stephen sings were both DL committed to us who never enrolled and wound up at liberty

How in the world was that not a hold on the kick return????

Holding's not a thing today!

Fair catch at the five!!!!??? What the holy hell?

We put the K in Kwality

that was a line drive too! High odds of it going into the EZ

Why do you fair catch it at the 5? You let it bounce and you have a decent chance at a touchback. No awareness what so ever with any phase of this team.

Why did he catch that?? His foot was on the 5 yard line and its very likely that ball rolls into the EZ. Now the offense will go into a shell, run three times for no gain and punt.

Is coronavirus over yet?

or safety again

Because our ST coach is a moron.

We put the K in Kwality

If you're gonna fair catch on the 5, isn't better to just let it go and take our chances on a touchback.... Not a fan of fair catches inside the 10.

The offense and special teams are just so putrid. The only way I'd want to donate to the Hokie Club anymore is if it were for Bowen and Holt's buyouts

O was averaging 8 ypc. This half 2. We've adjusted out of our own strength.

We put the K in Kwality

Are we going to adjust from running up the middle which they have picked up on or just keep doing it.

If you don't want to recruit clowns, don't run a clown show.

"I want to punch people from UVA right in the neck." - Colin Cowherd

Honestly, nothing leading up to this point in the season makes me think we will ever change this. It's almost like Bowen is determined to prove this can work.

"Well it's bound to work at some point"- Tyler Bowen...probably

Hey Bowen, "What's the definition of insanity?"

Official per the radio guys- Marve now calling plays on D in the second half

Seriously. Who is calling these plays? Liberty knows exactly what we are doing every play.

We needed that scramble. Lets gets some points here and get back on track.

Wells made lemonade from lemons there.

That was a called draw. Thank goodness he broke a tackle.

When you make a play that makes the radio announcers say "why?"..... you messed up.

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

Someone smarter at football than me may be able to confirm. It looks like whenever Wells hands off he leans forward right before the snap and almost steps into it. It doesn't seem like he does that on play action/pass plays. Almost like a pitcher tipping his pitches if that's the case.

I noticed that too

When haven't we shat ourselves in the 2nd half this year?

Why does Liberty call short passes (swing passes, screens) to slow our rush?

It's almost like our O should do something like that.

Our refusal to get the ball in the hands of playmakers in space is mind boggling.

We put the K in Kwality

Because we HAVE to run dives on at least 1st and 2nd down...and 3rd down if Bowen's feeling saucy.

Too busy trying to strip the ball to make a solid tackle.

Two outstanding plays by Garbutt there.

I feel bad for him, played his butt off this year and won't get nearly as much recognition as he deserves because this team is so utterly awful.

If we had a QB who at least had pocket awareness and could see the open guy more times than not, we would have several more wins this season.

Every week, I turn on the game prepared to see an absolute shit show. We watch a quarter or so of average to decent football and I think, "OK, here's some progress." Only to be followed up by the worst football I watch on any given weekend.

I knew we'd be bad this season, but dang...

Is coronavirus over yet?

I agree. All three units have looked capable at times. But none have strung 4 good quarters together. Or even 3 or 2.

I tell myself its a product of having a first time HC, first time OC, and first time DC.

I tell myself its a product of having a first time HC, first time OC, and first time DC.

It is, but this is also where depth and talent come into play. Depth is self explanatory. Talent... if you have one guy who can break a couple tackles and score, it gives everyone a break. Instead, this team is forced to play perfect just to get 5 yards.

Agreed. A few studs out there could go a long ways.

Why doesn't Bowen watch their offense and say "hmm...we could do that". You know, get the ball out quickly to playmakers in space. Such a novel idea.

Everything in this offense is so slow developing. Slow developing runs, or slow developing long pass plays.

With an OL that can't block. Great combination.

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

The sad thing is this is a winnable game. Wells is what he is but EVERY single Holston run has been the same play call and for some reason we can't seem to figure out that King can out athlete this defense.

Wells can't see the field and doesn't know how to avoid a sack.

I've seen progress this week again regarding penalties and turnovers (so far) - and I'm going to credit PRY all the way for that.
But we need some players or this whole campaign is doomed.

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

I stand by this is the worst o-line in 20 years at VT. Wells is ABSOLUTELY not helping and cause some of this but a lot is on this putrid o-line.

OL is bad but Wells is also holding onto the ball far too long and doesn't know how to throw it away.

Can Delane play QB?

Touchdown Tech!

Holston has been playing decently today. Picked up quite a few important yards for us with the 3 tds, 4th down conversion and a few other gainers.

It could be his last game in the Tech uniform if UVA cancels for next week.

If it was, he went out on a high note. He has been a point of frustration at times, but I'm happy he got to ball out and then was unselfish by listening to the coaches and not scoring at the end. Could've had 100 yards and 4 TDs, but put team first and fell down to kill the clock.

I had a feeling that 2pt wasn't gonna stand.

I can't believe they went for that. Desperation is a stinky cologne.

Bob: What would ya say ya do here?

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

Hugh Freeze yet again showing poor game management. Why go for it there?

Maybe he thought that we could run the clock out if he punted it?

psh, what an idiot!

FEAR!

Because he's seen our game film. How many big third and fourth downs have we given up?

We put the K in Kwality

We've been running it well all game. Don't get cute now.

Did someone give Bowens playbook to Hugh?

Think i saw someone in here say Marve is calling plays in the second half? I've been largely impressed

Yup. If he keeps this up I'm good with him. Defense has been plying well for the most part.

I wanted to ask about this... It looked like he's been carrying the playsheet around all game. Was wondering if he was calling plays today.

Now can the offense hold up their side of the bargain or allow just enough time to go down points and not have any time to do anything

THAT IS HOW You RISE To the MOTHER FUCKING MOMENT MARVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow I thought for sure they were gonna convert. Let's run this clock out

Run the ball with authority and eat that clock

Has Wells always done that "lean forward" thing when getting the snap? I don't recall seeing that motion before

I think that's brand new this week. I'm hoping this is a telegraph to hit the pop pass on this next play.

Wife said it looked like a high school stadium from the pictures she saw

Not sure what freeze is doing with the timeouts/game management here. If he was gonna use timeouts this early, why go for it on 4th and 12?

And Grant Wells strikes again

Is coronavirus over yet?

Jesus Christ Wells...

Throw the gaddamn ball. Seriously. What the hell???!!! Take a 15 yard sack????

We put the K in Kwality

It was third down at midfield and we're trying to run clock. Why would he throw it away? We're punting either way and throwing it away stops the clock, what do we gain by throwing it away?

About 20 yards of field positon for the punt. Give them longer field to try and drive.

cannot take that sackk

Throw it away at least!!!

Wells is an accident waiting to happen.

Wells takes another sack. WTF.

And ballgame!

Bob: What would ya say ya do here?

Brad: I already told you! I iron out the minutiae so Justin doesn't have to. I have people skills dammit! What the hell is wrong with you people?

Don't you dare jinx us damn it!

This guy doesn't give his receivers a chance to make plays

They're going to have to come back and take it out of his hand

Awareness is LACKING

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

Yea - Wells needs work. but there really wasn't anything there. at least not an INT>

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

Wells isn't the answer, I hope we get new blood at qb next year

The only positive to taking that sack is that it forced Liberty to use another timeout
