I had a lot of folks reach out yesterday after Virginia finally ended a fifteen-year (!) losing streak to its hated in-state rival, which was damned nice, considering. Some asked me how the win felt in comparison to Georgia winning.
All I can tell you is I felt the same way watching this play unfold…
… as I did seeing Robert Edwards’ clinching touchdown run against Florida in 1997.
Matt Hinton put it well yesterday.
It’s not that you wouldn’t trade years of losing for something better. Of course you would. But there is something about being in the moment when your team finally overcomes that heavy weight of futility that is worth cherishing.
Sports are great sometimes, yeah?
