Yo UM boy,
I would not bring up that game. The Hokies did not pass because your team could not stop the run. If it is not broken do not fix it. The Hokies ran all over UM like they were the Browns. So I know you do not like Mobile QB's they can run all over your boys.
See you next season in the ACC.

Maybe, but if we had a decent QB (Brock won't start next year) your runs wouldn't have mattered. You won this year but you didn't last year so enjoy it while it's lasts. Besides, when was the last time you guys won anything that counts :)

YO UM BOY,
Here is a little recap of VT's mobile QB and your Pocket QB that was benched with 4:35 left in the third quarter....lol
BLACKSBURG, Virginia (Ticker) -- No. 11 Virginia Tech may not have been prepared for West Virginia last week, but it certainly was ready to play Miami.
De'Angelo Hall and Eric Green scored defensive touchdowns as the fired-up Hokies routed Miami, 31-7, handing the second-ranked Hurricanes their first regular-season loss in more than three years.
Virginia Tech (7-1, 4-1 Big East) fell eight spots after last Wednesday's 28-7 setback at West Virginia, but Miami had no answers for the Hokies' tenacious defense. Hurricanes quarterback Brock Berlin faced relentless pressure and was benched with 4:28 remaining in the third quarter.
The Hokies snapped Miami's 39-game regular-season winning streak and 27-game run in the Big East Conference. Miami, which also had won 18 straight road games, suffered its first in-season setback since a 34-29 loss at Washington on September 9, 2000.
Virginia Tech had been 0-19 in its history against top-five opponents.
"It makes you awful proud to represent Virginia Tech and these people," Hokies coach Frank Beamer said. "We beat a great fooball team. They're very talented and very well-coached. A lot of things went our way. I think we made a lot of things go our way."
The Hurricanes (7-1, 3-1) slipped to 31-2 under coach Larry Coker, whose only previous loss came to Ohio State in last season's national championship. The surprising result clouded the national championship picture as it assured a one-loss team will play in the Sugar Bowl.
Oklahoma, which blasted Oklahoma State, is the only remaining unbeaten team among the six Bowl Championship Series conferences.
Miami suffered its worst defeat since a 66-13 defeat at Syracuse on November 28, 1998. The Hurricanes avoided the shutout on backup Derrick Crudup's 10-yard touchdown pass to Jason Geathers with 7:53 left.
Blacksburg has not been kind to Miami, which has lost four of its last five visits here. Two years ago, the Hurricanes escaped with a 26-24 win here when Virginia Tech failed to convert a late two-point conversion.
"This is a painful time for me, for us," Coker said. "We've played awfully well on the road, we've played awfully well in big games. But tonight, particularly offensively, we didn't play well enough to win. The turnovers and field position killed us."
The Hurricanes finished with a huge statistical edge, outgaining the Hokies, 377-219, and holding a 21-11 edge in first downs. But it was the big plays that did in Miami.
Hall, who plays offense, defense and returns kicks, delivered the first one big one for Virginia Tech's defense with a crunching hit on Berlin early in the second period. The ball popped in the air and Hall returned the fumble 28 yards to give the Hokies a 7-0 lead with 12:55 remaining the first half.
The only down note for Virginia Tech came with just over five minutes left when Hall was ejected during an altercation. It means he will not be able to play in next week's game at Syracuse.
"The key thing is not to get too high," Beamer said. "I'm going to enjoy this win but I think the key is not to get too high and come right back next week and play again."
Later in the second half, Miami executed a perfect fake field goal as holder Matt Carter lofted a pass to wide-open tight end Kevin Everett. With no defender within 20 yards, Everett had a sure touchdown, but he dropped Carter's pass in the end zone, an indication of how the night went for the Hurricanes.
"We would like to think it would be a different game (if Everett caught the TD pass)," Coker said. "It was a good call. It was just a drop. That's the thing you can't have and win."
Late in the first half, the Hokies sacked Berlin, forcing Miami to punt from the end zone. Virginia Tech took advantage of the favorable field position to open a 10-0 halftime lead on Carter Warley's 39-yard field goal with seven seconds left.
Linebacker Darrell McClover appeared to give Miami an opportunity to get back in the game with a jarring hit on Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick early in the third quarter. Vick coughed up the ball and linebacker Thomas Carroll recovered at the Hurricanes 34.
But Virginia Tech's defense would have none of it as cornerback Green returned an interception 51 yards for a touchdown on the next play to give the Hokies a 17-0 lead with 9:22 left in the period.
From there, the Hurricanes collapsed. Berlin ill-advisedly threw the ball up for grabs after being pressured by defensive end Darryl Tapp. Rover Michael Crawford made Miami pay, returning an interception 45 yards to the Miami 10.
Two plays later, Kevin Jones powered it in from two yards to make it 24-0 with 4:35 left in the third quarter. Just over four minutes later, Vick put the contest out of reach with a 46-yard TD strike to Ernest Wilford.
"I did hear a couple (negative) comments about us (after the West Virginia loss) and to come back and perform like we did against a great football team is a great win for the program," Beamer added.
Virginia Tech shut down Miami's running game, holding the Hurricanes to 116 yards on 38 carries. Jarrett Payton was Miami's leading rusher with 69 yards on 18 carries.
Jones paced Virginia Tech on the ground with 124 yards on 26 carries. Vick completed only 2-of-4 passes for 44 yards. Virginia Tech ahad zero yards passing through three quarters.
The result also changed the complexion of the race in the Big East as Miami and Virginia Tech trail Pittsburgh by one-half game.
31 - 7..............lol......lol.......GO HOKIES!!!!
