Fair doesn't necessarily mean equal

Good quote from coach Tim Jankovich, who went 25-10 at Illinois State last season, his first at the school after serving five seasons as an assistant to Bill Self at Kansas.

This season, the Redbirds are off to a 14-1 start, their only loss coming earlier this week to MVC rival Bradley.

In this article, Coach Jankovich talks about his teaching style:

"I do think fair does not necessarily mean equal. You can treat people differently but still fairly. The only thing I know is honesty. I try to be 100 percent honest with our team and tell them how I feel, what we believe we need to do and hope they are made up of the right character that responds to that type of teaching."
