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:

Video: UConn Football Pep Rally – 8/28/14

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.

editor’s note: I apologize for the shakiness of the video. I was trying to shoot photos in a few spots.
