Lou just said Notre Dame was going to win out in the regular season, and said that Michigan's offense was unimpressive last Saturday. He says that WMU almost outgained them in total yards.
Now that his son's not coaching against ND any more, he can go back to his unabashed homerism.
I'm not too surprised.
was insightful and objective, but I will be waiting a while for that. He has to have pictures of somebody at ESPN to keep his job. I can't find anybody (outside of the ND fan base) that likes the guy.
Somewhere a redneck truck is missing its back window.
And its truck nutz.
...and send $5 to Bill Watterson
All I heard was Sufferin Suckotash! Seriously though, If ND cleans their ball handling, this game will be a close one.
This is not news. He openly plays the homer. It's become schtick. Let's just ignore it.
Exactly. It's kind of funny, actually.
but in a pathetic sort of way.
he would have spit on you while saying it.
It's all Notre Dame tongue-in-cheek favoritism at this point. The inside joke that everyone now gets.
Somebody said something mean about Michhh on TV, better head over to MGo and alert the masses.
(Essentially a repeat topic, so I'll repeat my comment)
This is going to happen a lot OMG Shirtless. I hope you are a stubborn fellow.
Listed on the App currently.
It's no worse than you feeling the need to comment every time one of these threads pop up. Thanks though OMG Board Police.
If we're going to have a different thread for every comment made about Michigan by each commentator on each episode of CFB Live. I'll be sure to tell the OP that they're overreacting each and every time.
If you don't like it, don't click on it.
But then who is going to call you an idiot for posting that Lou Holtz, of all people, thinks that Notre Dame is going to beat Michigan for the 100th year in a row?
No amount of stupid analysis from mainstream source surprises me anymore. They don't know what they're talking about, we get it. That's why we're at mgoblog and not ESPN's CFB section.
Here's the one from last year with the ND/UM preview. Too funny
So he spit his way through another ND all the way prediction. How he has stayed on ESPN this long has to be an inspiration to stroke victims across the world.
Does this shock anyone anymore? In Holtz's mind, ND should run the table and with the NC every. Single. Year. Then they proceed to usually lose their big games (UM, USC) and then lose a few more that they should win (Navy, TUlsa, USF).
And if Kelly is going to keep blowing up on the sidelines like that, his players are eventually going to tune him out, and then it's all over.
Permission to give Lou Holtz a cup of warm milk and put him to bed?
..granted, please proceed and don't skimp on the sodium thiopental for the milk.
every time Holtz said something ridiculous re: ND we wouldn't have room for much else on the board.
Mark May stared at him like he was on something (per usual) and Rece Davis pointed out that the offense didn't need to be impressive, because the defense kept scoring and remained on the field.
But, what do you expect from Holtz?
Trolled by the Holtz.
This guy needs to just retire already.
he did already to the old folks home in Bristol Connecticut. They even gave him a "job" to keep him busy. Thanks ESPN.
Lou Holtz thinks ND would go undefeated in the AFC East.
Says ND will beat Michigan, let him..usually works out well for us!
Denard had 144 yards of total offense and we still scored 34 points, shouldn't Notre Dame be worried?
If ND wins out. I'm still not sure they go to a BCS bowl.
OK, they probably would, but one more loss would knock them out I bet. Their schedule is pretty weak.
Yeah they do. Bowls like selling tickets and tv enjoys high ratings. Plus they'll have beaten Stanford, msu, USC and Michigan.
Same thing every year. They could have beaten us last year and the year before, but didn't. They could beat us this year. We'll see what a night game and a roaring Big House brings. As annoyed as I sometimes get at Desmond, at least he's not a homer like Lou.
soo this is like 4 years in a row that he has picked them to go all the way.
It would definitely be a bad omen for Holtz to pick Michigan on Saturday. Good job Lou!
I feel much better about our chances of beating ND now that he picked them.
This shows all is well in the universe and we can expect more of the same for M-ND: the lower rated team upsetting the overinflated favorite.
The worst part is, eventually he'll be right. I just hope it's not this year.
Did anyone actually watch the game on Saturday? Our offense was barely on the field!
Actually said, if I am correct, that he was NOT impressed with Michigan's win, but was IMPRESSED with Notre Dame's loss.
That is about as awesome a quote as you will here.
Even douchebag Mark May thought it was ridiculous.
"the Tweeter". Mark May looked like he couldn't hold in laughter much longer.
At least he didn't call it the twittirola
Western had 58 offensive plays to Michigan's 39 when he argues that Michigan was unimpressive based on total yardage. Western averaged 4.8 yards a play to Michigan's 7.4 yards a play. Of course he is Lou Holtz so I wouldn't expect him to be make any sense.
Just for comparison if Michigan would of had 58 plays on offense, averaging 7.4 yards a play they would have finished with 430 yards to Western's 279.
Michigan averaged 7.3 yards a carry, had one penalty, no turnovers,and averaged 7.5 yards a pass. That isn't eye-popping, but I don't see how you could argue that they were unimpressive offensively. I guess if Denard doesn't have 300 total yards in the game, that means the offense was unimpressive to somebody like Holtz.
Holtz cracks me up. There are a lot of point-counterpoint type pairings on ESPN that drive me nuts, but I actually like watching him and Mark May. You can tell that they really get along, because he basically called May an idiot the other day and the only one who took offense was Rece Davis. Priceless.
