RE: How about This ??? 

Coaches definitely make a difference. Some guys just win wherever they go with whatever players they have available.  Schottenheimer was a guy like that in the NFL.  Snyder is an excellent example, too.  Then, of course, there's Morrell, Braet, and Schaffner -- those guys have had a pretty good track record at Butler.

It remains to be seen whether Flores can be that kind of coach.

I think CV underperformed expectations.  I think most people had CV finishing 2nd or 3rd.  The fact is, they never competed for second, getting convincingly beaten by Hutch and Butler.  They were also soundly beaten by a mediocre Trinity Valley team.  And, they struggled mightily to beat Highland (7-3), Fort Scott (double OT), and AFP (29-23), and just squeaked out a victory over GC to hang onto third place. Their only semi-impressive wins were over Dodge City (52-13) and Independence (38-19).  Sure, it's 5-2 and third place, but it was the ugliest 5-2 3rd place season one could have imagined for CV.  I don't think most fans (of CV or otherwise) would have thought that CV would struggle to a 3rd place finish the way it did.
