Cheering in the Coaches' Box
On Saturday, the college football world saw a chaotic scene on the field in Blacksburg as Virginia Tech defeated Nebraska, 16-15, on a thrilling final touchdown drive. But in the Hokies' coaches’ box in Lane Stadium, there was also mayhem unfolding.
Dyrell Roberts caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Tyrod Taylor with 21 seconds remaining to seal the win. The play took a while to unfold, as Taylor scrambled for nine seconds before releasing the ball.
Describing the mood in the coaches’ box during that play, offensive coordinator Bryan Stinespring said: “There’s a lot of one- or two-word statements: Throw it. Run it. Get rid of it. Go. Get open. You’re screaming but he’s not hearing you. Nobody’s hearing you.”
When the catch was made, Stinespring said, aside from the birth of his children, “it was the greatest feeling I’ve ever been around in my life.”
