UConn Strength and Conditioning Coordinator Matt Balis leads the team through stretching drills before practice number five on August 6, 2014.
Having been around the UConn Huskies football program since Bob Diaco was hired, the other major thing noticeable besides the change in culture is the difference in the players after the season and now.
The reason behind that is strength and conditioning coordinator Matt Balis.
He has literally reshaped the players bodies. Honestly, if you saw some of them in January and bumped into them now, you’d be shocked.
Watch below as the players talk about Balis as well as Balis’ reaction to what QB Tim Boyle had to say about him.

UConn Huskies football coach Bob Diaco addresses the crowd before the 2014 Blue/White Spring Game at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, CT.
On Thursday night, we saw some of the outside changes in culture that UConn Huskies football coach Bob Diaco has brought to the school and football program with the holding of a pep rally on campus.
But what about on the inside the program, you know, the nuts and bolts of it all.
The overwhelming sense I got when speaking with the players was the sense of brotherhood, being a family.
Having been around them since Diaco took over, I can say unequivocally that what they are saying is right. This is them being honest.
You can see it. And I think you’re going to notice it when they’re on the field this season as well.
Watch below as the players talk about the culture change:
A lot of people have asked me the following question. What kind of team will head coach Bob Diaco have with the UConn Huskies football team?
When looking at the UConn Huskies 2014 football schedule, plusnot knowing what the Huskies are going to look like offensively and defensively, it’s hard to predict the outcome of the games. But I’m going to give it my best shot. [...]

Huskies All Access host Erika Wachter sits down with UConn Football Head Coach Bob Diaco, Captain Byron Jones and Analyst Joe D’Ambrosio to preview Week 1 against BYU.
As part of the culture change around the UConn Huskies football program, which I’ll have more on on Friday morning, head coach Bob Diaco has the players staying on campus the night before a home game in East Hartford, CT.
Usually the team bussed into Hartford the night before a game. But that’s now a thing of the past.
Another thing Diaco has introduced is having a pep rally the night before each home game.
And while Thursday night was the first one, about a 1,000 fans, mostly students, showed up to Fairfield Way on campus in Storrs to listen to Diaco, WR Geremy Davis and LB Marquise Vann speak and pump everyone up for Friday night’s game against BYU.
