I guess all I want is a little respect from the national media. Instead, you go on Twitter and you find people that are putting down Boise State by saying they just beat a team that consistently chokes against bowl teams. About VT's 1-27 record (or something like that) against top 5 teams. About mentioning last year losing to 'Bama, the year before that to ECU, and the year before that LSU. Can't forget the BC game either against Matt Ryan.

I never understood playing 15 yards off the WR during the 2 minute drill. Some people call it the prevent D. I call it the prevent victory D.

It's painful for me to watch Kellen Moore drive his team down the field in about a minute to score a game winning touchdown with no timeouts, then when the Hokies have the same opportunity it's long failed bombs and incomplete passes. I'll just let the smilies express the frustration I can't put into words right now.

:frusty:: cussing:
Tell me this didn't feel like watching any Skins game the past 4-5 years... Seeing horse-teeth drive down for a late winning TD was like Romo to Williams...

Re: ***2010-2011 College Football Thread***

I'll probably get murdered for this but Tech's problem is that their in-game coaching is embarrassing. Bud Foster must go to sleep at night wondering what the hell the rest of the coaching staff was thinking. He seems to be the only one who can actually coach during the game. Everyone else is seriously a shit storm. Their offensive playcalling is pathetic. Their decision making as a team is just stupid. Why the hell they throw on 3 and 8 25 yards down field is mind blowing. Then when they get the ball back there is no attempt to work their way down the field (even though they have two timeouts and decent field position.) They just send everyone on fly patterns and posts. In the NFL Beamer would get fired for that crap.

Yeah I'm thankful I'm not a Va Tech fan. Every year they are in the preseason discussion as a title contender and they ALWAYS disappoint.

What a great game that was last night. I don't see how Boise doesn't run the table now.

I think the BCS championship is Boise State's to lose now. Unless they stumble, which is possible, they have the inside track.

Except for the fact that they will get their ass handed to them by whichever SEC team they play.

At least Tech plays contenders and not weak schedules like others. People forget Tech played and lost to 3 tough opponents outside their conference in the last 5 years that went on to win national championship that year: LSU, USC, and Alabama. In the latter two, just like last night, they held there own no problem. LSU game they got mopped. Tech is PROVEN they can play with anybody in the country.

Good point, I'm tired of seeing teams play powder puffs.

Re: ***2010-2011 College Football Thread***

Not exactly...SEC is a great conference no doubt, but this aura of invincibility that it has acquired over the last 5 years is laughable. Jacksonville State comes to mind against a solid SEC team this past weekend. Right now Boise State could beat every SEC team, Alabama is one squad where they would have the most problem. But I remember when Utah...yes Utah rolled up Bama like a carpet year b4 last at the Sugar Bowl. Boise State was sloppy againt Tech yesterday as well...there gonna be a well oiled machine by the end of year...ask a very very good Oklahoma team several years ago how Boise State plays in Bowls...An assumption like any SEC team beating Boise State right now is humerous to say the least

Haha..exactly. Like how many times has Boise been written off by all the experts and big programs and they just continue to whoop ass and take names. This team is well coached and can play ball with the best of them, ask Tech. Truth is they could have and should have beaten Tech by a wider margin.

I don't see any SEC team rolling against Boise State, but I guess that's why they play the game.

Great post. Problem is Stinespring is a poor OC and Beamer is too loyal for his own good. If he coached at any other major school either he or Stinespring would've been gone by now. This is nothing new. You can see there is very little creativity in the VT offense and they have tremendous athletes. They're just not being coached properly in the passing game at all.
