Holy Eastern bias in the names of these awards, Batman! Also, how does Bill Beaney for Most Valuable Player in Playoffs make any sense?

Don Roberts Award: Adam Krug (Adrian College Bulldogs)
Awarded to the coach adjudged to have contributed the most to his team’s success

No disrespect to Adam Krug, but watching Trinity play, those players won because of how well they were coached, they executed their plan perfectly. In my Opinion I think Trinity's coach contributed the most to his teams success in winning their National championship. Everyone on the team blocked shots in the defensive zone, no one was selfish in the offensive zone either.
