It's on the main page of ESPN. Holtz argues -- get this -- that Michigan lacks incentive for this game since we cannot win our division! I can't wait to hear Spielman's take during the color commentary -- such penetrating journalism! Go Blue!
Good News! Lou Holtz Picks Ohio
than he is a Notre Dame homer. . .
Really? I throw the challenge flag, i've never felt that about Holtz. From all I've seen from him on TV, he has much respect for M.
I don't ever recall him picking Michigan in THE GAME.
With him and Notre Dame!
The guy is the biggest joke of Saturday football TV (his name and credible analysis or journalism don't belong in the same sentence). He'll be wrong as usual. Go Blue!
From this day forth, I will be negging any post that uses an asterisk in place of a letter in a swear word. Either use the word or don't. The asterisk is stupid.
But the asterick protects those f*cking innocent f*cking kids that read the blog from a**holes that use the word f*ck! Won't you think of the f*cking kids?!
Can you post a brief synopsis of your auto-negs again please? I think you may have added a few recently prior to this one.
And BTW I 100% agree with you here. I you want to say Fuck, say Fuck. Writing F*ck doesnt somehow absolve you of swearing as everyone who understands English knows the word you are saying, hence the asterisk not confusing anyone.
Because I like you and I'm not too drunk yet, I'm more than happy to give a recap:
A) I downvote all MSU threads.
B) I downvote all threads that belong at MLive.
D) I downvote all threads with shitty titles.
I downvote [Mr. Yost] bi-weekly depth chart posts because I still believe you are Em0 v4.0. However, I don't downvote your comments in said threads.I no longer believe Mr. Yost to be Em0, he might be, but I'm not sure anymore
F) I downvote every single thing posted by Mr. Mario aka McFarlin v123.0
G) I mark every single post by Section 1 as redundant, because I signed an E-Contract with ProfitGoBlue to refrain from responding to him.
H) I downvote any reference to points. I would downvote this post, but the system no longer allows you to do that.
PS - Points and Negs do not actually count anymore. The only useful thing about negs/posbangs is that they cause certain people to freak out, despite being functionally useless for about a year.
I downvote any post by Wolverine318, Wolverine319, ProfessorX We made up.
J. I downvote any use of an asterisk in a swear word.
Ammendments Part 2 - Can't believe I forgot this one.
K. I downvote anyone who signs their own post.
As much as I think you can be a bit of a jerk sometimes, I agree with almost this entire list. Also, I'm pretty sure mrmario86 and BILG are the same person
How about that MSU football team? That Mr. Mario is quite the poster huh? Section one always makes informative and new arguments. Hey how come I don't get upvoted more? F*ck Ohio!
It's gotta bug you that you can only downvote this once.
Can you really expect "journalism" from a company that has a fiscal conflict of interest in every sport or game it decides to cover or not cover?
well. I don't watch him much because it's impossible to clean thlobber off of the INSIDE of a computer or TV screen. But when I do he's invariably wrong. It would be nice to be there when his toupe finally falls off, though.
So we can't win our division... and Ohio has already won theirs outright. And Ohio isn't even playing for a bowl. Seems like you're hoist on your own petard there, Mister Holthsz
LOL at thinking Holtz hates Michigan more than he likes ND....Anyways, Holtz is a moron if he believes Michigan isn't going to be motivated simply because they can't reach the BT title game. This is The Game and he probably doesn't realize that this rivalry is actually more important than ND/USC historically and in my opinion this year as well of course.
I always felt it was ND and whoever was playing Michigan with him.
He also predicted that Notre Dame would go undefeated, I think our chances are good. I can't say the same for Notre Dame
Why even live?
Shhthuckerin thucatash! Go Blue!
- Picks Ohio to beat Michigan solely because Michigan can't win its division now
- Picks South Carolina to beat Clemson despite South Carolina not being able to win its division (wait shouldn't they not care now? such consistency!)
- Makes an embarrassingly awkward and unprofessional pitch for his son to remain the HC at USF (back-to-back losing seasons in a terrible conference = success in Lou's mind)
- Committed violations at ND and South Carolina (major) that everyone seems to forget, including many that were swept under the rug at ND
- Has made me have to like/side with Mark May
"- Has made me have to like/side with Mark May"
But me too.
Can't play for a title or a bowl, so...
Does Lou Holtz even understand what the concept of a rivalry is? The prospect of beating your rival is incentive enough. Senile old man......
You know nothing, Lou Holtz.
I quit listening to him talk after literally spit out that Michigan had nothing to play for in this game....... For a guy with Ohio ties he sure is clueless when it comes to Ohio vs. Michigan. The only reason you need is that you're playing Ohio
Not only was the reasoning (?) lacking in any understanding or acknowledgement of the depth of rivalry, but the tone in which he said it sort of came across as "How sad for you..." as well. Both Holtz and Corso essentially follw the script of "I pick team X over team Y because orange water given bucket of plaster".
the second I first heard him speak.
Holtsh picked Mishigan to loosh againsht Ohio? Who would have guessed.
