Maryland head football coach Randy Edsall decided to do something pretty common this morning when he tweeted out motivational lyrics from a song by Drake. There was just one problem: Edsall got the words wrong.
“Work until your idols become your rivals “_ Drake

The lyrics come from Drake’s song “Thank Me Now” off of his debut album “Thank Me Later.” The exact lyrics are “I can relate to kids going straight to the league; When they recognize that you got what it takes to succeed; And that’s around the time that your idols become your rivals.”
We really can’t blame Edsall for getting the words wrong, since the lyrics “work until your idols become your rivals” have become misattributed to Drake, but it’s still kind of funny.
