in place within two weeks of the end of the regular season (which wraps up Nov. 23) that has "discipline and accountability" and "honesty and integrity on and off the field."

"Not one player left our program," "I think they believe in the program that we're running."
"We're going to stand our ground and then we're going to work to get back to where we all know we should be, and that's at the top,"
"Maybe we weren't as good as we thought we were. But now we've kind of refocused ourselves. We're starting to play like we expected to play,"
