This weekend was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for North Carolina running back Elijah Hood.
On Friday, he successfully proposed to his girlfriend, Shelby Valeriano. And on Saturday — his fiancee's birthday — the newly engaged tailback rumbled through the overmatched Virginia defense for 107 yards and a touchdown.
But what if she said no?
What if Hood, arrested by the horrors of heartbreak, fumbled the ball on his first two touches and was relegated to sideline duty for the second time in three weeks?
