    I like Lou Holtz

    strictly from an entertainment standpoint. I like to listen to him talk just so I can laugh at how insane the man is. Pair him with May and you could have a traveling comedy special. How are these two employed?


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: I like Lou Holtz

    By the thread title, I thought this would be the shortest thread in CF history. ;)


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: I like Lou Holtz

    You have to look at him like a cartoon or comic book character or something to have any appreciation at all ... if you take him seriously, you must hate him

    Re: I like Lou Holtz

    I agree, those two are pretty funny... and most of the time, I don't think they're trying to be. What a headache this Florida love-fest is. I will be cheering my lungs out for the Vols tonight.

    Oh they are definitely not trying to be. That is why it is funny. If they were trying to be funny... it wouldn't be funny.

    I feel bad for Rece Davis. You can just hear his contempt and aggravation when Holtz & May speak.

    I guess we will never know what Holtz did at ND to get fired.

    Who knows. He was a good coach. I don't really mind his opinions but I absolutely HATE Mark May. How he is allowed on television is beyond me.

    Re: I like Lou Holtz

    The best part about Lou is listening/watching him get all fired up or mad about something while he's trying to make a point. When that happens it seems as though he loses control of his lower jaw.
