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.
