"The guys are frustrated, but they've got to be mentally tough to get through this," he said. "This is big-boy lacrosse. This is not going on the rec field and throwing the ball around and saying, 'Hey, let's have a good time. It's OK if you throw it away.' No. We have to start to understand how we need to play and how to play tougher, and our guys understand what we're trying to do. They understand we have their best interests in mind, and we're trying to get better. And they want to be successful. They stay late, they come early, they work hard, and they understand. Things aren't going our way. It happens sometimes in sports. We've had nine excellent lacrosse seasons here, really good ones. This one is not off to the start we want. We understand. But in the end, we still think we can make it a good season."
