"I think we all understand the expectations that come along with a program like the University of Virginia," he said. "We've created this thing and probably only have ourselves to blame. In the end, it's who we want to be. We want people to have high expectations for our program, and the issue is – in a more philosophical sense – for a lot of the public, there's only a very, very narrow window where we are allowed to define a successful season, and it really is winning the last game. And that's just not going to happen all of the time. I feel like my job is to sort of deflect that away from the players as best I can. There have to be other parts of this journey that are valuable, and if we happen to not to win, we still have to define ourselves as being successful. So I never talk about the national championship, I never talk about the end of the season. At the same time, we want to start every September thinking that we have a chance to be playing on that last weekend, and that's how we sort of prepare ourselves. We can sort of apply that to everything that we do."
