2012 Virginia Tech Football: North Carolina Game Guide
Late the other night I watched ESPN's A Season On The Brink, a film based on John Feinstein's book chronicling the 1985-86 season he spent with Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers. While I found the film absolutely terrible, lacking in substance and completely omitting roughly half the season, I begun to think about how the title fit the 2012 Hokies. The situation they find themselves in puts them squarely at a crossroads. Do they respond like the Virginia Tech teams of 1995 and 2010? Or do they falter, give up, and have a nightmarish season like the teams of 1997 or 2003? Anything is possible, but as of now, the Hokies fit the bill of that title more than the team for which the book was written for.
