The head coach made all of the other things on the list happen.

Yep. Without him, none of the other pieces fall in to place.

Strength and conditioning staff.

I know Blake hired them so that's probably the real answer. My goodness have I been impressed with their contribution.

Go back and watch their introduction video

All of the above. I would say that belief, a positive attitude (instilled by their leader), and the Strength and Conditioning Staff have been huge.

Blake...a genuine man that the kids can trust to be real with them. The staff also...this change is about culture. The best talent will not provide results in a toxic culture.

Hard to get and maintain all of the best talent in a toxic culture also. Jaylen Warren, even though very talented, the previous staff couldn't maintain.

I know he is not on the list and all the credit goes to BA, but none of this is possible without the balls from Hartwell to get rid of Gary after only 16 games into his contract. He obviously followed it up by hiring an awesome coach.

Blake reminds me of who Gary was the first time he was here. Hard-working, caring, a true believer in the program.

Except for the failed execution of GA#1. He was great in the day for us, but did have coaching fails and played to not lose vs finishing like we now are doing.
