So for now, here are all the words I've written about this Davidson team over the last four years. It's been quite a journey through this post-Elite Eight era, full of tension and frustration and a beauty and grace all its own. I wouldn't ask for it to have gone down any other way. Over and over, through the cycles of forming and growing a team and building community, we see it come back to this peak of gratitude, pride and hope.
I don't know if it happens quite the same any other place, this life-brimming small town where we root our hearts deep in the North Caroline dirt.
I guess I did have a few words in me after all. And here are many more, from 2009 to now. Tomorrow let's enjoy the ride, just like we always have. Go 'Cats!
