How come hurricanes generally hit the week we play Miami? Is that some kind of cruel joke?
No one wins. That Clemson game was awful. That seems to be the theme of the season. When we win, we look decent, when we lose we look like CGally is playing QB, DiP is running back, and BDubs is coaching. That is not a good look for us.
Moving forward, Miami is at the same terrible 4-4 record as us, both needing two wins to get bowl eligible (side note: is anyone else as nervous as me that we won’t make a bowl game this year? Like serious nervous, not just “oh noes, no bowl game” but like “really? I might not be watching the Hokies play around Christmas?”) We’re playing Miami at Miami on a Thursday night. This could be awesome or it could be terrible. Or it could be mediocre and an embarrassing prime-time win where we scoot past a conference rival. Could be anything. I may not be looking forward to the game tonight. Man, I sound like a pansy.
Ahem: WE WILL CRUSH MIAMI AND MAKE THEM RUN BACK TO THEIR MOMMIES AFTER WE DEMOLISH THEIR OFFENSE AND OBLITERATE THEIR DEFENSE!!!1!!! THE HURRICANES BETTER BE SCARED, BECAUSE WE ARE ON THE WARPATH TO VICTORY!
Onto this week’s predictions!
BDubs: The only relevant hurricane to even consider thinking about is the one reaping havoc on the east coast. The ones in Miami are just a bunch of pansies who think they know how to play football. I predict that I yell at the TV about play calling, moron coaching decisions, and bad overthrows/drops at least ten times. My alcohol consumption line is set at 6 – I am thinking OVER at this point. However, Hokies still win and take control of the Coastal with a 27-13 win.
DiP: 27-24 hokies…..spread covered somehow
d_w: wait wait wait.. we are still playing? I thought we were rolling right into basketball season instead.. so this week in Miami we get reminded that it is still football season and that we are still better than miami.. Hokies win 34-21.
Wright: Hokies win 23-20, key sack late seals the game. Good luck to my sister’s boyfriend, who I think is supposed to be getting the start at center for us.
CMU Football Analyst: Hokies will come out of the off week well rested and prepared for a mediocre Miami squad. 33 – 24 Hokies
Hokie Ambassador to Philly Milwaukee: We are not a good football team. Luckily for us neither is Miami. Tech wins a good game between two very mediocre teams. Final score: 27-17
Maniak: it still sucks to be U…Hokies 38, Canes 17
Hokie Guru: Virginia Tech 24 Miami 21
GWay: While the same problems continue to plague us, the defense shines and the offense at least limits the mistakes. Hokies 24-“da U” 16
CGally: Take a good look at how far Miami has fallen. It’s like looking into the sad, sad future for Virginia Tech.
Hokies 31 Canes 24
The Northerner: [Insert witty Hurricane Sandy Joke] Hokies win 27-21.
It looks like no one is in danger of getting the banhammer next week, which is a good thing. Keep the forced optimism up reader(s)!
