A Football Team and Its Coach Confront the Unimaginable

From a Washington Post story by Barry Svrluga headlined “At Virginia, a football team and its coach confront the unimaginable”:

Tony Elliott stood Saturday afternoon before a microphone on a stage on the floor of a basketball arena instead of in the center of a football locker room, making a speech he should never have had to make. His job seven days earlier had been to inspire young men to win football games. His job now is to inspire still. The charge wasn’t supposed to come with this level of complexity.
