problem with the conditional statement?

The error says I should check that the conditional is set up correctly, but I can't find any mistake. I used the ! operator to check for an undefined ngModelCtrl, with a direct return if that's the case. Help!

angular.module('treehouseCourse', [])
  .directive('sometimesTwoWay', function() {
    return {
    require: '?ngModel',
      link: function($scope, $element, $attrs, $ngModelCtrl) {
        if (!ngModelCtrl) {

        console.log('my model', ngModelCtrl);

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html ng-app="treehouseCourse">
  <script src="js/angular.js"></script>
  <script src="app.js"></script>

  <sometimes-two-way ng-model="course.description"></sometimes-two-way>

Maybe You require: '?ngModel', and the rest of code You have ngModelCtrl, So try to chnage require: '?ngModelCtrl' if i am wrong ,sorry

Take the $ off of the $ngModelCtrl - link: function($scope, $element, $attrs, ngModelCtrl)
