In-game comments post: Virginia Tech

This is a critical game for a variety of reasons but most importantly because we don't have much room for error in our path to a bowl game. Virginia Tech tends to play down to their opponent, which should make this interesting. Leave your thoughts and comments below.

Tailgating very light. Everyone is at the Red Sox parade. Lots of Hokie fans.

eagleboston said...

I just counted. There are 50 SuperFans in the student section. #utterembarassment

ATL_eagle said...

What are the stands like?

More Jolie's than Eagles

Hokies

Damn spellcheck

ATL_eagle said...

Good drive. We seem ready for the read option.

ATL_eagle said...

Still a little predictable.

Tim said...

Game is not on TV here in metro Boston because of the parade.

ATL_eagle said...

When they put nine in the box we need to audible.

ATL_eagle said...

See. The Rettig holes have been there all year.

Big Jack Krack said...

Great - stay aggressive on D

ATL_eagle said...

Very nice drive. Nice mix of run and pass and nee looks.

JBQ said...

Great, great run by Williams. Very nice run by Rettig to set it up. So far, so good. As the Bostonians sang on ESPN, "For Boston, till the echoes ring again".

ATL_eagle said...

Thomas is having trouble with our blitz.

Big Jack Krack said...

Watching on my PC. I could not make the game so one of the parents of a starter has my tickets. 50 yard line.

ATL_eagle said...

I know that drive stalled but Chase is playing better.

Bravesbill said...

It's nice to see that Day basically has the same gameplan as he did last week: run on first and second down, and pass on third and long.

ATL_eagle said...

Need to bring more pressure.

Big Jack Krack said...

Need to adjust on D from here on.

Bravesbill said...

Get past the damn sticks! How many short passes have just missed today? Either horrible play calling, terrible situational awareness by the receivers or both.

ChrisB said...

Too predictable on offense ; crowd filling in a bit

Big Jack Krack said...

How many tds did we give up at the end of the half last year?

Bravesbill said...

Geez, looks like the defense is going soft again. A conversion after 2nd and 30?! Unreal.

Bravesbill said...

No pressure. Soft zone. Ridiculous. Spaztastic.

Big Jack Krack said...

Please hold

Big Jack Krack said...

Watch fake fg

Bravesbill said...

Well this game has been fun. No chance they come back now.

Big Jack Krack said...

Well we set that up by not being aggressive on offense with 2 minutes to go in the half.

I hate it when coaches call plays that players never would.

Give these guys a chance coaches.

SLeBC02 said...

At the game. Been to many. This is the most boring game I can remember. Go BC hoops.

eagleboston said...

Very Spazoo-ish end to the half. Unbelievably frustrating. Rettig is playing better but the scheme has been multiple tight ends and run, run, pass. Not built for come from behind. 1st possession is critical. Also, more touches for Willis, please.

Crowd filled in a bit but still many empty seats.

eagleboston said...

Anyone else have a problem with BC taking the delay of game penalty instead of calling a timeout and then punting?

Big Jack Krack said...

Yes - I did.

I am sick of this stupid offensive game plan.

Watch out for 17 to 7.

Big Jack Krack said...

Great break and play.

let's run Williams up the middle a couple

Big Jack Krack said...

I hope Miller and Ramsey are ok in the long run.

BCNorCal07 said...

Gotta play for points with that 4th down at midfield. VT plays for points on 3rd and 17 and it pays off. We only needed one yard and instead opt to go conservative, which backfires. At least had one thing go right with that interception.

BCNorCal07 said...

Can't cover in the middle of the field AND can't tackle. Bad combination.

ATL_eagle said...

Need to answer. Can't win games only scoring 10 points.

Big Jack Krack said...

We are down by 7, bit there is plenty of time.

I suggest we run Williams up the middle on first and second downs to show them who's boss.

Big Jack Krack said...

Watch out for the blocked punt!

ATL_eagle said...

The D needs to hold them to three downs here.

eagleboston said...

I'll say it again, we will not go bowling with Rettig at QB. He cannot lead the team to points. 10 points and 3 of them were defense assisted. That is not getting it done in the ACC.

Big Jack Krack said...

Rudolph out now too.

Great play by D and Edibali

Big Jack Krack said...

Big Jack Krack said...

Perfect throw by Rettig to Sinkovek.

Bravo.

eagleboston said...

53 yards passing after 3 quarters. Ouch.

ATL_eagle said...

Need to blitz more

ATL_eagle said...

I'm pacing here in Atlanta.

ATL_eagle said...

Daniels made that one happen. Great run by KPL.

BCNorCal07 said...

Quote of the day from my girlfriend: "Finally! They covered the middle! See what happens when you do that, guys? You get touchdowns!" Indeed.

eagleboston said...

Whooooooo!

dixieagle said...

If they screw this up, I will blow a gasket. Sick of playing tough (mostly) and moral victories. Want a W.

Big Jack Krack said...

L-o-g-a-n to KPL - don't you just love it?

Big Jack Krack said...

Bull shit

ATL_eagle said...

Terrible call. Pass was uncatchable.

ATL_eagle said...

I think it grazed his fingers.

ATL_eagle said...

Wow.

dixieagle said...

Williams is a major DUDE! Wow!!!

Bravesbill said...

Prevent defense time!

dixieagle said...

If they let VT back into this, I will crawl through the TV to throttle someone.

Bravesbill said...

Nice tackle

eagleboston said...

BC has not finished a big time game in years. Now they have to get 2 first downs.

Big Jack Krack said...

Who missed that tackle? Not to be critical of the player, but bad technique.

Can we get ONE first down?

eagleboston said...

Crap if BC does not get the first down, Beamer is going to bring the house on the punt

Big Jack Krack said...

Disappointing for sure.

Bravesbill said...

I disagree with the announcer wholeheartedly. You play to win the damn game. Do a play action.

ATL_eagle said...

Gilmore is spot on with his analysis.

Bravesbill said...

No difference between 2 mins and 2 1/2 mins in college. Still a ton of time to score.

Bravesbill said...

Not at all. On that call he was incorrect. Thinking like a conservative coach who doesn't want to defend his decisions or be fired. Play to win the game. Lucky they got the fumble.

dixieagle said...

Whew! Very happy about this W. Thank God for the D and Williams.

Big Jack Krack said...

Very happy for our team.

Great win, guys.

We needed it - but more importantly, you needed it and deserved it.
