While fair weather fans complain about coaching, time out, and players flexing, the true students of the game understand what is going on here and appreciate reggie's coaching and player development. Reggie has a great national reputation because he coaches for long term success instead of the ephemeral gains from a win here and there. He has always been criticized by the novices of time management but I like the way he lets players play through tough stretches knowing that it will benefit them down the road. Just think about how much the players learned from losing the lead and eventually the game. That experience will pay dividends down the road and earn many more victories in the future. tough losses also develop leadership. Let's stop going overboard with criticism after avery loss and wait to see how the season turns out. We were in first place until this last loss. You can't expect perfection every game. i still like how the young players are developing and think we will have a very good year.

That’s what we said about three other coaches at Canisius, they were wonderful people and losing builds character. Let’s see how much character building was developed by these three outstanding coaches:
Mike McDonald 153 losses .414 Winning percentage
Tom Parrotta 121 losses .346 Winning percentage
Marty Marbach 94 losses .343 Winning percentage.

The Canisius basketball team has built a lot of character over the years with those 368 losses in 20 seasons. I guess we owe it to Reggie to let him build a winning program no matter how many seasons or losses it takes. What was the schools tag line a few years ago, “Where leaders are made.”

That kind of thinking about building character around losing reminds me of when President Truman fired General Douglas MacArthur for wanting to go on the offensive during the Korea War and MacArthur’s reply to the firing by stating “Because there is no substitute for victory.”

MacArthur was an arrogant moron who endorsed the use of nuclear weapons in Korea. If MacArthur got his way, the world would have devolved into chaos and violence.

Literally stop. This man has had tons of talent to coach and he’s been wasting it. He’s most certainly not developing the young talent either. It’s time he started acting like the coach we hired to win us a championship.

I do not believe any of this. What young players is he developing?None of our recruiting class are good enough to even get off the bench except Henderson for a couple of minutes a game. The assistant coaches walk around with their hands in their pockets during timeouts while Reggie argues with the refs. It would not be so bad if any of them could recruit some decent D1 caliber players. We specialize in projects and players no one else is recruiting. The results , or lack thereof, speak volumes about the state of this program. It is no longer even entertaining to watch this mess.

"Ephemeral gains from a win here and there"? Give me a friggin' break, guy.

What's really scary is the 4 new guys, supposedly building blocks for the future, and just how little they've contributed this year. They offer no hope, and yet they're right in our face every time we open this board, as if to mock us.
