I was at the game. I was struck by the overall lack of emotion in the 2nd

half. At the end of the 3rd quarter, almost the entire VT team raised their hand with 4 fingers and came to midfield and starting jumping up and down. The refs told them to go back to the sideline and they eventually did but not after a few moments to let our guys know they were pumped up. Our guys really didn’t respond. And the usual dancing that we do on the sideline seemed less than usual.

I can’t quantify it but it just felt like they were emotionally more invested than we were as the game wore on. And to me, that is inexcusable.
