"I'm a traditionalist and this happened on my watch," he said after Monday morning's news conference at the university's Cordish Lacrosse Center in Baltimore. "Make no mistake, that's a lot of sleepless nights. I'm not responsible because this was a decision made by a lot of people, but I participated in that decision. So when you lay in bed and think, 'Wow, we're kind of altering our path,' yeah, this is such an important entity here. It's a part of the fabric of our community and Maryland. So we thought long and hard about it. I'm sure there will be moments where you think back and say 'Remember when?' But I'm excited when you think about the rivalries we'll be able to keep and you start to compete against traditional athletic programs that are so well respected in Michigan and Ohio State. That's kind of exciting to think about us maybe having a game in the Big House or in the Horseshoe. Those are great opportunities for our kids."
