We don't know, either.

Frank Beamer's team is 9-1 in its last 10 November games, dating back to 2009. Just one problem: The 2012 Hokies are pretty awful (for Beamer's standards, at least), having lost four of five coming into tonight's matchup.

Still, it's in Blacksburg, so there's a (small) chance of this.

there are way more than 9 teams better than Florida State.  Sorry, I'm a hater.

Florida State players can't help themselves. 
I would love to see OSU play these fools.

Big news! Mike Bianchi's obsession with Urban Meyer continues - now he's claiming that UFMis trying to get Tim Tebow to help recruit for OSU: http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/os-mike-bianchi-tim-tebow-ohio-sta...
Hres my favorite line, where Bianchi is relating the PD article from a week or so ago about Tebow becoming an OSU fan: "'I was pretty nervous," Tebow told The Plain Dealer. "We were literally taking off as they were about to score and then go for the two-point conversion, so I didn't know until we landed that they won. So, it was pretty cool. And I guess as hard as it is for me to say, I am a pretty big fan now of The Ohio State University."
"See why Gator fans are upset?
"Tebow actually referred to the Meyer's new school as "THE Ohio State University." Traditionally, only true Buckeyes actually identify the school in such a snooty way. Which leads me to believe that the Urbanator – that dastardly recruiting genius – really does have Timmy Terrific brainwashed."

I see nothing wrong with a two time National Champion and Heisman trophy winner recruiting for OSU.

Why blame Urban for what Tebow is saying and doing.  Tebow is a grown assed man who makes up his own mind.  He certainly doesn't have to like Ohio State if he doesn't want to.

Va Tech 9 Tackles for Loss in the first half.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Jesse Palmer stated that Va Tech's QB Logan Thomas has the arm strength to make throws that 95% of the QB's in the NFL can't make.........hmmmm.
Uncle Rico can throw it over a mountain, but can't hit the side of a barn either.

If only they put him in... then they would've won states. He would've gotten a scholarship... and then made it in the league...

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

probably my favorite line from a movie is, "How much you wanna bet I can fire this pigskin over that mountain" I say it all the time lol. 

BuckeyeinSavannah's picture

I haven't watched that movie in quite awhile....I think I'll be watching it today.

johnblairgobucks's picture

well doodoo.  Va Tech better start recruiting Defensive backs A.S.A.P.

Florida State has some athletes, but your right JohnBlair, I wish they were on the schedule.

Florida teams don't like playing football in 43° weather.

I stand corrected.

It appears that Beamer Ball has been fully deflated.

Va Tech is going to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.  I should stop watching, but I can't help myself....

cajunbuckeye's picture

Va Tech defense records the fifth sack of the night. Florida State looks pitiful.

Aaannnddd FSU should drop out of the top 15 just for that play. Its a safety!!

lol.  come on cajun, it too cold out for them southerners.  Va Tech is going to choke this one away, IMO.

cajunbuckeye's picture

Beamer Ball Lives!!!

JohnBlair, there going to pull this one out. Until they decide to run the ball. You might be right, they choke.

Va Tech 4th Quarter last 2 minute Defense....... Ring That Bell Man!!!

Kurt's picture

Beamerball = Tresselball.  I'm so glad we now have an offense that given the situation VaTech was just in, we'd punch it in for 6.

Kurt's picture

I bet FSU comes back to win this game.  VaTech gave it away.

Kurt's picture

Yup.
Beamer earned that.

NoVA Buckeye's picture

It's more comparable to Walrusball.

The offseason begins when your season ends. Even then there are no days off.

Kurt's picture

It isn't.  Tresselball was a confusing mish-mash of power-i, passing spread and running power-spread.  Sometimes it took advantage of an athletic qb's legs, but most times it didn't and just sputtered...that's exactly what Beamer is doing.  
Walrus was just straight-up power-i taking advantage of no player's athletic abilities.

cajunbuckeye's picture

I just spit mountain dew!! Thats fu@%ing hilarious!!

The guy ringing the bell finished me off!! I can not stop laughing!! That's insane!! I mean it, it's a game changer!! +1000

You need to warn people before you break that one out again. LOL

Guh. Cannot believe they allowed that score. I do like to see Beamer teams do well. Beamer is, after all, one of Jim Tressel's horcruxes.

johnblairgobucks's picture

Va Tech DB's had a ruff game.

penult's picture

So Arkansas State is in the hunt for the SEC championship now, right?

NoVA Buckeye's picture

Yep. And Kirk Ferentz won yet another B1G COY award while they were at it.

What happened to the kid that got carted off in an ambulance.  I was playing darts at a bar tonight and saw them load him in.  It appeared his arms moved while they were loading him up, but it looked pretty serious.

Michael Brewster started at Guard for the Jaguars last night.

BUCKEYES BABY!
