Lou Holtz is awful, as in terrible at his job. He is old, a homer domer, doesn't understand today's game, and is annoying as shit. These are some of the reasons why I 100% loath everything about him. So the topic came up, I said I could write a blog about it and this is my best shot. However, the nation championship game was on last night and the broadcast team of Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis was so terrible and all about Tim Jesus Tebow I cant resist.
They really got the ball rolling in the first half with my favorite moment of the entire game. A lil' paraphrase for you: If you have the fortune to meat Tim for five min or even a half hour you life will forever be better for it. Are you serious? The whole forth quarter was a Tebow love fest the likes of which have never been seen before, which is saying something. Including this gem in regards to the OU defensive back who said Jesus Tebow would be the 4th QB in the Big 12. Thom calls it the most ridiculous statement ever made. (Don’t remember the actually quote, but it was worse) Ever? So that means the entire history of talking correct. I just going to say there might have been a few worse statements made. Just piss poor all around by Fox, makes me happy for the ESPN BCS era, who woulda thunk it?
Speaking of ESPN and the BCS, the most important question we cn ask ourselves is: Will the executives wake up by 2011 and fire Lou Holtz or will he be on even more, and heaven forbid, call a BCS game? Oh what a scary thought. He can't remember players names, he mixes up schools, do we remember the last show he got through without a major mistake? Ok, so is not the best talker out of the talking heads, so that means his information and opinions make up for it, right. WRONG! He really does not understand the modern game. The spread is like a different language to him and it is always clear he has no idea what is going on. His blind, senile devotion to Notre Dame makes ESPN's totality of coverage loose credibility. His best quality is making everyone around him look and sound a lot better. Especially Mark May, a great open mind who's man job is owning Lou. Lou Holtz in general is just the worst person on TV. Whoever gave that man a job should be worse that fired. He should be locked in a room with Lou and made to listen idiot ramblings about football for eight hours a day. Torture!
P.S. He spits all over the place when he talks. I mean come on his job is to talk. You have one job, one job!
