Subject: Reggie is no Lou Holtz

I loved the irony, the biggest game of the year for Canisius against arch rival Niagara and Reggie make a command decision. He decides to bench his best player during the middle of the game for disciplinary reasons. It reminded me of when Lou Holtz was coaching the Arkansas Razorbacks in the 1978 Orange Bowl against the defending national champions Oklahoma Sooners. Heavily underdog in the 1977 season title game, Holtz benched his best running back and receiver. Holtz used this to motivate his team to beat the Sooners and it allowed Notre Dame to win the 1977 national championship. Then Holtz repeats this tactic when he again benches his best running back in 1988 when his number one ranked Notre Dame has to play arch rival #2 USC on the West Coast. Unfortunately, our Coach wanted to keep the Reese issue “in-house.” So instead of using it to motivate, he leads a demoralized, low energy team on the court. Reese and Hitchon sitting together at the end of the bench said it all.

This will be the at least the third time I say this, I beg you Reggie start Sanks and Faulkner!!
