I tried to counter that. Talk about petty.
I've been to games at Lane, and I've traveled as an OSU fan. The Buckeye fans are delusional if they think the atmosphere won't be as loud and crazy as any they've ever seen. The Hokie fans are delusion if they think there won't be an impressive contingent of scarlet among the orange. Basically everyone's delusional - and confident.
I guess I'm the only one who doesn't think it's that big of a deal.
Nothing beats a Chromecast and full games uploaded on Youtube. I've been rewatching these games since February without commercials or editing.
There are 1,000 little things that would have led to a very different outcome if they hadn't happened just right. I'm convinced if we hadn't lost to Virginia Tech we would have lost later in the season and ended up playing Baylor in the Cotton Bowl. There's the punt that stuck on the 1/2 against Indiana in the 3rd quarter that changed the momentum; the personal foul on the extra point in the first overtime against Penn State that started us on the 12 1/2; the 3rd and 23 pickup against Michigan State down 14-7; Evan Spencer's block that let Elliott get through; it's why I love the team's philosophy of playing your absolute hardest for the 7-8 seconds a play lasts. You never know which play is going to be the one that changes the game.
Somebody sure doesn't like shivers, chills, or goosebumps.
"Eric" the Clown put it out with his big shoe.
WHO?! WHO DOES NOT WANT TO WEAR THE RIBBON?!
Which is why I'm on 11W
Afraid not, I have to student harder these next two weeks than I've ever studented before.
Oh don't apologize, I'll be fishing for ways to start using that in everyday conversation.

I've found there's more to Blacksburg than I expected, especially this summer - I thought the town would be borderline empty but there's more here than VT.
100% agree. This would be a great Big Ten matchup. You know, we've got a great engineering program here at VT, if only there was an engineering school in the Big Ten that was an absolute trainwreck on the football field, we could swap for the Hokies...
Ah, but Frank Beamer doesn't wear the worst toupee that any human being has ever worn, ever.
Spot on - you see it after the pick six too from the redhead wearing glasses. They don't even understand that the rules allow other teams to do that to Alabama.
"Displaced"... haven't we all seen that dreaded "displacing the kicker".
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't making my peace at that moment.
I have probably rewatched this game 40 times. Maybe on the 41st I'll notice something I new.
It would be from Back to the Future where Doc Brown says, "The Libyans - they found me, I don't know how but they found me." Someone get on that.
Last year's Maroon Effect was the only time in my life I've left a football game early...
I've heard others say that I just don't get it. I don't mind the maroon and orange.
And I'll be saying it around here until I'm hoarse - do not underestimate this crowd and stadium. I'm sick of seeing polls where the majority say there is ZERO chance Penn State beats Ohio State and I'm sick of hearing people talk like we're playing a scrimmage at a high school stadium here. I hope our team will have more respect for its opponents this season.
To me the band news was much more embarrassing and disappointing. Whether you think the players' actions were really all that bad or not, they broke an obvious rule and I'm glad they're getting some tough love in a game that matters. I expect others to step up and the team will move on quickly. But there is just no way to spin that news about the songs into anything but an embarrassment that will haunt the band for a long time.
Certainly not the band. What a disgrace.
