You first. How does UVA do in big games? Then again, when has UVA been Ina big game? I'll wait
If you want to go through all of history UVA was the first southern team to beat a northern power. I would classify that as a big game. Played 2 games as the number 1 team in all the land, they would be considered big, beat an undefeated FSU team on national TV to give them their first lose in ACC history, I would say big game. If VT were say Alabama, Texas, etc. the hollier than tho attitude would hold some weight, but come on man. 51,100 plus days VT has been open all of which spent with out a single National Title in any sport.
And the classic revert ensues to sports that no one gives a shit about. Okay.. What about during the modern BCS era for those who don't give a shit about 1990? I bet those VMI Keydets still talk about those back-to-back-to-back wins over UVA in 1976, 1977, and 1978..

Just coming back and I see the holiday spirit is going strong. LOL!!
WAHOO 4 LIFE!!
Depends on your definition of a big game. If your asking how we fare when we play Top 5 Top 10 teams, we have fared pretty decent in those types of games, I think somebody looked at it a while back and we were close to .500 in those games and we were the underdog almost everytime.

One of my buddies called me that night saying how great Duke was playing and the big lead, I asked him did he rember Duke beating VT 20-0 after the first qtr and the the score ending up as 48-20 VT. They didn't disappoint again I see.
Your recruiting class is not miles ahead of ours, Come on Man!! I will agree that not many paying members to message boards are the one's that crossover to Duke or UNC for basketball, but there are alot of them that do that aren't on message boards, I see it a lot more with VT fans than UVA fans.
Yeah there goes your rep for travelling great. That was pitiful. Orlando in December is a great trip especially if you haven't been there in a while.
I was shocked to see Nova play that badly, I watched one of their games earlier in the year and he was on. What happened to him. Both offenses looked awful, Both teams D came to play though.
Mizzell is heading to Army All American Bowl right after the Chesapeake Bowl.
You keep saying the same thing over and over again, if he's as terrible a coach as you claim he is he wouldn't be coaching. We all know next year is gonna be a better year for us and 2014 should make a serious run at the ACC. We'll see what happens in the next couple of years before saying he can't coach.
Welcome Back.. Did you get that package I sent you? #Stars&Bars
that wasn't funny at all.
08 was such a shame by the way. that team should have been loaded, but instead it signaled the end for Groh. We lost literally every returning starter to academics or injury. mostly academics.
Ok stat guy you missed again. Wins at Miami and FSU. First college team in history to beat those two teams on the road in the same season. You just can't seem to get it right can you?
Left handed hand shake for you..
Neither of them were particularly good that year. Beating bad Miami and bad FSU teams are not big games.
LOL.... when was the last time the Hokies accomplished that feat? Can you pronounce "never".
When was the last time UVA had an outright ACC title? Can you pronounce "never." There is nothing you can say to defend that. That is absolutely terrible. Almost 60 years. Zero.

But it was a different ACC then, did you know both times we shared the ACC Title we beat the shit out of both teams we shared it with. Hell we beat Duke in 1990 59-0.
and lost to an unranked VT
When was the last time the Hokies won a natty in any sport? Can you once again pronounce the word "never"? You have an empty trophy case that collects nothing but dust. Come take a look at our trophy case. It will be an enlightening experience for you. The likes of which you will never see in that empty trophy case of yours. You will always play the role of little brother.
So Al Groh is a good coach then right? He wouldn't have coached UVA for 9 years if that wasnt true (per your very own words).
Being a coach doesn't make you good, that's why people get fired. Going to make a run at the ACC? Hahahah I'm assuming you are banking on FSU, UNC, VT, GT, Miami, Clemson all leaving. Only logical thought.
And how do you know you'll better? Y'all were so positive you'd be in a bowl this year, you don't have a feasible QB, unless Lambert plays.
just like how all the techsters thought the oline would be ok after losing, what, 4 starters. and how they would once again, win the ACC and make a run at the championship, behind their heisman QB. what i think playahata was trying to say is, that if London doesn't do anything with what he'll have in 2014 he aint worth beans
"Just gotta keep balling out"
I didnt miss anything, everything I stated was a fact. Congrats on that win over 6-6 Miami, thats a huge accomplishment. Nothing like beating a .500 team.
