Inspiring story about UVA's Isaiah Wilkins...


Andrea Adelson wrote a nice piece about Isaiah's struggles with clinical depression, which is something many of us likely didn't know he was dealing with.

Rivalries are fun and sports can be a useful escape from daily life, but I always like to be reminded of the human side of things. People are highly critical of athletes even when they play for their own team. It's important to realize these are kids learning and growing on the fly.

Anyway, give it a look if you have a few minutes. Isaiah is doing a lot by being open about this critically important issue and it's worth your time to hear his story.

Tomorrow will be a great day for Hokies and 'Hoos alike. College Gameday (for basketball!) and a night game will be a big thing for basketball in the Commonwealth.
