FROM THE DESK OF BOBBY WILDER
WE WILL TURN THIS SETBACK INTO A COMEBACK
We are excited as a football program to come back home to S.B. Ballard Stadium Saturday night. After 2 tough road games to open the season our team is ready to play our first game in front of 20,000 loyal fans. This past Saturday at Maryland we were soundly beaten by a better football program at this time….with the emphasis being at this time. Maryland is picked to finish behind Florida State and Clemson in the Atlantic Division of the A.C.C. and deservedly so this year. They are well coached and they have good football players. We will get to that level in the near future. We are a work in progress as a program and we are going to get better every day!
I spoke with our players immediately following the game about dealing with adversity. We all face adversity at some point in our lives and we faced it Saturday as a football team. The best way to handle adversity is with a positive mental attitude. Attack adversity by doing everything is your power to be successful. We will ask ourselves as coaches and players what more can we do to improve and get better. We will turn this setback into a comeback with our positive mental attitude as a football program. We will treat every day as an opportunity to get better as a team.
Thank you for your tremendous support of our program and we are excited to be with you Saturday night!
