Cut-off sleeves

I no longer allow athletes to wear cut-off sleeves in the Performance Center, unless it’s a uniform issued by the school.

Cut-off sleeves signal a culture: “People like us care about how we look.” I’d rather it be, “People like us care about how we perform.”

The culture is exactly what you want it to be: “People like us do things like this.”

Better to define the culture ahead of time than to let the culture get ahead of you.
