You have made my point. So is Ullery the right head coach to bring that to football? The first year was promising but the last 3 years has been a disaster. I am not seeing Ullery build the same foundation as Cupps.I believe there are a number of factors when comparing Centerville to basketball. Let me preface my comment by saying that Cupps is one of the top 2 coaches in the area hands down but you definitely need talent to win without it you'll only go so far no matter what the sport is. However it is my opinion to no fault of theirs that Cville has benefitted from very weak area in D1 there's only 3 good teams in that division area wide and Cville plays both teams 2x times a year.
Secondly, a good coach will cultivate a culture regardless of talent. Within cultivating that culture he or she will instill winning and life qualities such as work ethic, accountability etc...but to achieve ultimate success you to manifest talent by providing a consistent stable culture. Centerville is simply not as talented as they were when Gregg was there they've always had talented line play, quarterbacks, linebackers, D-ends and Rb's, Gregg cultivated and manifested that talent. On that level you"ll win some games but you don't make deep playoff runs by just getting players to play above beyond their limits.
