“I don’t have many rules for my players. But the rules I have are important, both to me and to the good of our program. We don’t just set rules on top of rules, and we’re always clear that the breaking of a rule will produce a certain result.” –Pat Summitt

“The fewer rules the better. Rules reduce freedom and responsibility. Enforcement of rules is coercive and manipulative, which diminishes spontaneity and absorbs group energy.” –Dale Brown

"If each of you makes every effort to develop to the best of your ability, follow the proper rules of conduct and activity most conducive to good physical condition, subordinate individual acclaim for the welfare of the team, and permit no personality clashes or differences of opinion with teammates or coaches to interfere with you or a teammate's efforts, it will be a very rewarding year." -John Wooden (Pre-season letter to his team from July 23, 1971)
 “If you are unwavering once the rules are set, you won’t have to enforce them as often. Be strong and uncompromising and you will find that you have few repeat offenders.” –Pat Summitt

“Too many rules get in the way of leadership...people set rules to keep from making decisions.” -Mike Krzyzewski
