Use this thread to discuss the game. As a disclaimer I will be asleep during the game due to most likely having to wake up at 3 am for a pissed off 11 month old....so on theory talk to you then!

Late night with the Hokies!
Staying up late. Looking for a Hokie victory.
Almost Gametime, LET'S GOOOOO!
Sup, fellow night Hokies?
Ready to get this win!
They got a pretty decent big man in the middle,could cause trouble for us early.
Woowoo...let's get an early Christmas win
Lots of experience too - starting 5 seniors. Should be a tough game for us all around. Nothing bad about getting tested early though.
613 on directv. Let gooooo.
The offense just doesn't seem very fluid right now.
Here's a nice scoop for you still awake - source inside the team just told me Erick is having trouble getting a handle on the balls being used in Vegas. We use Nike basketballs while these in Vegas are Wilson's, made from a different fiber. He's been having trouble getting used to the different feel - hence some of his issues with free throws/turnovers out there.
Wow. Interesting tidbit. Hopefully, he'll get more used to it as the game goes on.
This team just can't rebound.
Rebounding is a knack and we honestly just don't have anyone with that particular knack.
Depth is hurting almost every aspect of this team right now. We don't legs under our shots, rebounding intensity is low along with defensive pressure. We need more bodies, unfortunately that won't be until next year with some incoming freshmen. It'll be a rough year but I think we're making the best of it so far.
There's a reason we look tired right now, and it's not as much about depth as you would think
Barksdale and Raines just don't act like they want it. Not to be rude or knock on the guys,but you don't see the fire or emotion that you would want to from big men. I understand and can sympathize with being undersized but I can't with lack of effort
It's more of just their personalities. Both are pretty quiet guys. It's not like they don't want it, but I do understand your point.
This offense looks like the goonberg days
We will not win more than 4 ACC games....I just can't see it happening
Seth is laughing. Say what you want about his boring O. JJ has no idea how to stop an average team with a plan on O. Knows how to pass - even the announcers are calling it a clinic. We are about to go down 20 - without an answer for their simple O.
We may not win an ACC game after they all watch this film.
Was fun to watch while we built the 9-2 against little sisters of the poor..
I can see 12-18. Again. Real easy.

Jarrell Eddie has REGRESSED.
Looks like a High School player.
Remember guys, CSU was an NCAA Tournament team last year and are starting five seniors. This isn't a bad loss by any means in terms of the RPI and SOS. However, we are playing miserably and we have some pretty glaring holes in this team's makeup.
In order, imo:
1) Lack of a defensive prowess
2) Poor rebounding
3) Little depth
4) No real secondary scorers
First 8-9 games this year you saw a team that played with confidence and heart. Even if they couldn't rebound or get many stops on D they pushed the floor and Brown and Eddie played with confidence.
Brown and Eddie are horrible right now. They both have vanished from this team after the WVU lose. Green is the only one that is playing with the same heart as he did to start the year. Frustrating to watch right now. I know depth and back to back games aren't helping but there is still no excuse to be blown out by 20.
