I’m going to do the best I can with what I got. So are my players. That’s all I can ask them to do. I do think that we have some bad luck right now. I think our first year here we had a lot of good luck. I’m also a guy who believes you make your own luck. So I told our players that. The guys I talked to yesterday, I said ‘We have to keep plugging away.’ We have to start - once we start striving to be the best, then we’re never going to reach our potential [sic]. That’s kind of my philosophy on life. The kids I talked to academically, it’s the same thing I told them. If you don’t work at it, you’re not going to get any better and you’re never going to reach your potential. Whether it’s football, whether it’s academics, it’s whether - how you live your life. I think these are life lessons that you learn. I don’t mean to be philosophical, but that’s my belief. So I’m not backing down. I’m not going to stop working. That’s just the way I am. I’m not down. If anything, I’m motivated. I’m going to get this thing right and we’re going to win football games here at Maryland.
