the comeback heard ’round the NCAA

This post is basically a week overdue, but I have to jump on the bandwagon and throw in my two cents about the miraculous win Virginia Tech pulled out of thin air last Saturday against the Nebraska Corn-Huskers.  I had the amazing opportunity to be in the stands in Lane Stadium for this game.  It was the best $$ I have ever spent for a flight from WA to VA.   I was convinced that the Hokies had all but lost the game with 2 minutes left.  Let’s face it, we are NOT a “make big plays and come back” team.  Heck when we were down and the tuba line took the field to play the Hokie Pokie I was already thinking how long my flight back to Seattle would be while having to mull over another loss, but no matter what I NEVER leave the stands early (or leave the tv for all the times I’m in Seattle watching a game).  No matter if my team plays 58 minutes of the worse offense in college football I still support my team and refuse to leave the stands till the clock hits 00:00.  Those dumb-a$$ people who left early, poor sapps who missed what I think is the greatest ending to a Hokie Football game in my generation.  One week later I am still unsure if it really happened and I still get goosebumps watching the replay.  I’m fairly certain my heart stopped as the ball was in the air on that 81 yard pass to Danny Coale in stride down the side-line..then I cheered more than I have ever cheered in my life…he was called out of bounds at the 3 yard line.  Again my heart stopped…the stands went silent and from the 11 yard line the ball was snapped and I think I lost 5 years off my life while Tyrod Taylor scrambled for what seemed like an eternity before throwing a bullet into the endzone for a last minute TD to win the game.   Ok…enough of my lame attempt to recap the game, just watch the video after the jump and relive it for yourself.

And if you think that is amazing…check out this amazing stunt to score a touchdown and win a game with only 2 seconds left on the clock…now how they got this entire dance sequence done before the shot-clock expired is beyond me…but if our offense doesn’t improve greatly this Saturday against Miami we very well may need a stunt like this of our own to pull our another miraculous win, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can win the old fashioned with Lunch Pail defense and Beamer Ball special teams…
