Not sure about Reggie but Dugout Doug MacArthur's performance in the Korean War is not a good analogy.

His performance in Korea ranks alongside Ambrose Burnside or the other poor generals of the Civil War.

Ignored his intelligence and totally misjudged the timing and extend of China's involvement; overextended his lines and divided his forces in northern North Korea, and led to the needless deaths of thousands of US soldiers in a vain quest for glory when he should have stopped at the 38th parallel.

MacArthur did not spend one night in Korea while he commanded the US forces there. Matt Ridgeway saved our bacon with one of the greatest displays of generalship in the 20th century.

No Canisius College men’s Coach has an overall winning percentage over .600 since either scandal plagued John Morrison or whoever coached in the 1950s. John Beilein? He has recorded roughly a .640 winning percentage everywhere he’s coached. Except for Canisius. The Reggie detractors have to get a grip. Canisius is a horrible basketball school. Now that UB has completely overshadowed the Griffs, the future is bleaker than it ever has been. I indeed wonder whether the college will even be open in 20 years.
