In a performance-driven society, you've got to perform

Came across a good quote a few weeks ago that I'd saved.

University of Central Arkansas Bears in Conway, Ark., rank among the top 25 Division I-AA teams in the nation. At 4-0, things appear to be moving in the right direction for coach Clint Conque's team. But after the Bears beat winless Arkansas-Pine Bluff, 41-17, to move to 3-0 on the season, Coach Conque wasn't happy:

"We're looking at everything from scheme to personnel. We have good kids, but this is a performance-driven society. And if some people are not performing, you find somebody who can. We are better than this. At some point, you have to call people out. People are gonna call me out if I'm not doing things right."
