Sugar Bowl: Michigan vs Virginia Tech

18 posts in this topic

What a bummer. Its tough bein a Tech fan. They build your hopes up every year and then let ya down big time one way or another. Theyll be good again next year and do the same thing... Still love em though. They're my team and ill stand behind them no matter how many times they choke. I aint a fairweather fan. I love my Hokies and Panthers!

It probably was a catch.

However, the call to go for a fake punt on the fourth and short in regulation was baffling. Michigan was unlikely to be fooled there. Much better chance if they had just lined up and went for it. Instead they gave michigan's struggling offense a short field.

The fake punt was a terrible call, much like the 4th down in the redzone where they tried to run the same Logan Thomas sneak a second time i a row with the same result. Could have had 3 points but gave Michigan momentum.

I expect this from their play calling now....

The game should've never gone into ot to begin with if VT was more aggressive on offense

Why we don't get rid of Stinespring baffles me

I'm not a VT fan and didn't really care about this game, but I watched all of it and that was definitely a catch.

VT got robbed in the worst way.

Even with their baffling decisions and horrible play calling, VT should have won, wtf is a catch anymore?

Stinespring isn't calling the plays. If anything, what I don't understand is after getting owned by Clemson twice, why didn't they adjust to make up with how teams are going to try to deal with David Wilson. I saw wayyy too many toss plays in the first half get busted up for 4 yard losses and 1 huge one which was a dumbass move by Wilson(he'd have a 100 yard game if he didn't The Golden Calf of Bristol it and go 20 yards backwards).

The truth is though, despite any shortcoming in playcalling and questionable decisions on 4th down, they were in position to win the game and they should have. This has happened too many times to VT. So close, yet not enough. Last year's Stanford game was the only time they were clearly blown out of a BCS bowl.

Also if we're going to draft a WR late in the draft, we better pick up Danny Coale. Dude is Mr. Clutch, is a really good blocker and perfect route runner.
