What's So Marvelous About Berating Fans?

November 17, 1990

I was disappointed to read that Marv Marinovich lost his control and temper over remarks made about his son, Todd, during the USC-Oregon game. I thought Marv was tougher than that.

Over the past 40 years I have been confronted with similar situations and could have reacted as he did. The need for emotional control was never more necessary than when my son, Bill, played basketball for his dad at USC.

My unsolicited advice to Marv is: Enjoy the highs of success and quietly absorb the painful lows.
