The defense is consistent in their porous approach between the 30’s.

I actually think this defense is having a great year with a paucity of talent. We will see if it last, but how can people be upset with how the defense has performed for most of the season?

To fumble twice in VT territory and only be down 3-0 is a good result after 2 possessions each.

Agreed. I was harsh on them early on but now that we have a good idea of what type of unit it is, I think they are performing well. They also seem to be improving.

Down 3-0 but if you read this thread without watching the game you would think we were down a helluva lot more.

Not upset about the points against, but then again, we’ve only played one great offense. The missed tackles are maddening.

I get that, it reminds me of the 90s. But in the end, points are all that matters.

Our offense is having their way with the VT defense.

If only we could get out of our own way.

I was going to ask that, Cronan just said the VT pass rush was coming but not coming fast enough and I was wondering if that was the blocking, and whether there was any noticeable improvement.

Offense is moving the ball easily both on the ground and in the air. Our offense is in a similar mode to the Matt Ryan years where a negative play on 1st or 2nd down isn't a death sentence because of the passing game (that play to Flowers that lost yardage SUCKED and it was obvious as hell the ball was going to him).

OL has been tremendous on run and pass blocking. That’s a huge reason for the frustration. They are dominating.

Fair enough. But on the flip side the defense kept them in and didn't let it hurt.

He looked OB. A gorgeous move after that. I’m concerned that he’s also 1 yard shy of the 1st down.

Not for nothing but this OL has delivered tonight. Jurk has all day back there and holes are open on the running plays.

Zay just embarrassed two hokie defenders, wow.

That play was something else... the footwork, the concentration, and the move.

Wow

I am so glad that HJS predicted that Jurkovec would come in here throwing it all over the place. Phew! Had HJS predicted that he was a headcase or something, BC might be in trouble.
