of guys he recruited, guys motivated by what he was selling, guys whose imaginations were inspired by his vision. Hoke and company did pretty well with the tail end of Carr's recruits. I realize many things contributed to that but I wouldn't dismiss that Hoke spoke the language of Carr when it came to the program. Things like that are what leaders use to rally the troops. Leaders rely on shared values to motivate.
I see many are discounting the role of leadership. I couldn't disagree more. Every successful organization has strong leadership. The source and styles may differ but it isn't absent.
