HIGHLIGHTS | fsu 48, VT 47

Virginia Tech loses a heartbreaker on a last second 3-pointer by Snaer to give florida state a 48-47 win, dropping the Hokies to 0-6 at fsu in ACC play. Tech blew a 15-point 2nd half lead.

And yes, I know I botched the final score at the end but it would take too much time to edit that and I’m more focused on Turkey at this point.

    Kudos to you for the quick highlights! It would have taken me a week to work up the courage to watch that again and to comment without breaking down and using foul langauage.

    Hey, we covered the spread! I thought the slowdown (take a knee – I realize you weren’t criticizing, just commenting) was a decent strategy because I was concerned our players were going to run out of gas. So, use some clock and create fewer posessions to defend and run the offense. Also, Eddie had 4 fouls and DFS had 3. At that point they were defending bigs and more possessions means more potential for fouls. We almost stole one – just a devastating way to lose. 6 missed opportunities from two guys who normally would have made 5 of those.

      Let’s just say it is a good thing my commentary isn’t live if you know what I mean.

    I love the half time speeches.. Will and Tom would be excellent coaches.
