VT OL is has been dominant since the 1st Q. Lots of time remaining but they refuse to beat themselves and our defenders aren’t making game changing plays.

This. He does some dumb shit, but he's got two more years. He's better than any QB to play here since at least Rettig already, and that is generous to Rettig.

What he did to us last year wasn't enough?


Has anyone had a 100-yard rushing performance vs. BC with two difference schools? I'd have to think this is the first. And honestly he had 187 against us for Kansas for I'd imagine we could bump that up to 150-yard performances by the end of the night.

This. He’s more than a big arm. He goes through his reads. For every sack he takes doing so he makes three great plays.

Actually 3 if he wants/needs it. This year does not count toward eligibility.

This is more about the QB extending drives than it is the RB. The terrible discipline in the pass rush has been a problem all year. If they win this game it will be because they stop Hooker, not the Kansas guy.

With this defense, the hole the offense dug might be too big.

Travis Levy is terrible and doesn't belong on the field.

Feel bad for the RB coach. It's Gunnell? Gonna get an earful from Haf is my guess.

If VT puts the latest gift into the end zone it is over and there is no point watching any further.

Eh, this sloppy starts with the head coach. BC hasn't played a game this sloppy in decades. If Hafley blames other people, he's kind of a douche.

Well at least they aren’t stringing us along. This is a really complete performance across the board. You just hope they can learn from such a piss poor showing.

A good deal of this is squarely on the coaches too. VT has been going for the ball (stripping and aiming the helmet toward the ball) all game. We have not protected the ball well.

Time for Hafley to act like a fucking coach. Get on guys. Hold them accountable. There is zero fucking discipline with this group. From the turnovers to the fuckibin penalties. Unsportsmanlike on a PAT? The fuck? The 15 yarders have to stop too. He keeps talking about how he’s making mistakes. There’s been a ton tonight. He needs to start learning.

You're a Patriots fan, you know better. Ball handling is coaching.

Oh wait .. you root for Tampa. I understand now.

This goes back to Hafley saying that they aren't tough on the guys on the sidelines because they want the players to play loose.

It's just dumb.

And look the players are playing loose making stupid mistakes all over the field. This isn't the playground. Hold players accountable when they constantly fuck up.

You'd think after 3 fumbles this would have been stressed at halftime. I don't know if it was, but aside from the Levy fumble, Jurk was VERY VERY close to losing the ball on a scramble on the previous drive. This is careless. Going to need an Omar Epps thing this week ala The Program for all of these guys.

You don't make them not fumble on the sidelines. They should be loose today. Not fumbling is learned in practice. Yelling at them now does shit.
