he tempers it a bit with a "if they turn you down it doesn't matter" comment...but good lord...talk about delusional.
Lou Holtz suggests that ND should go after Pete Carrol...lol
Thanks for the link. lol.
hire him on!
Why does ESPN still have him on? All he does is go on rants.
as Mark May.
you're joking right?
As long as he isn't talking about ND.
Back on topic. Eat it MadtownMaize! ;)
Seriously though...Lou Holtz needs to be put out to pasture. And if you aren't convinced, then let me draw your attention to some advice "Dr. Lou" gave to Miami's football team after their first loss this year. This is an actual quote from "Dr. Lou":
"The losing team had 4 players: everybody, anybody, somebody, and nobody.
They were all given an important task. Everybody was to do it; everybody felt sure that somebody would do it, because anybody could do it, but nobody did it. Somebody got mad because it was everybody's job...everybody felt that because anybody could do it, but nobody realized that somebody didn't do it.
In the end everybody got mad at somebody because nobody did what anybody could do."
That's either pure genius and above my comprehension or Lou is fucking crazy. It's nice of ESPN to hire retirees though, I guess.
I think that may have actually been brilliant. Actually, I have no idea.
I translated the "body's" to names ... still not sure I get it :(
"The losing team had 4 players: Lou, Tyrone, Charlie, and Jimmay.
They were all given an important task. Lou was to do it; Lou felt sure that Charlie would do it, because Tyrone could do it, but Jimmay did it. Charlie got mad because it was Lou's job...Lou felt that because Tyrone could do it, but Jimmay realized that Charlie didn't do it.
In the end Lou got mad at Charlie because Jimmay did what Tyrone could do."
from one of those motivational posters you see in corporate employee breakrooms or maybe in high-school bandrooms. (I'd be surprised if anyone is hearing this doggerel for the first time.) If Holtz indeed rendered it correctly then I'm impressed, although failure to cite sources is a scholarly infraction.
ESPN must get a tax write off for charity by having that crazy, saliva splattering, homer on its already tarnished airwaves.
What, your face?
How great is it when they do those mock trials where him and May pick a side. I believe good ole lou thinks he's actually representing someone in real life... I can't stand him, but for some reason I just laugh at how ridiculous he is during those segments.
I don't know if anyone remembers, but at the start of the season Lou Holtz picked ND to win the national championship.
$10 He picks notre dame to win the national championship next year...
Actually if you give me 10-1 odds, I'll take Lou Holtz picking Notre Dame to win the national championship THIS YEAR.
Anyone hear him announce "James Clausen" for heisman consideration tonight?
Yeah and when he said Clausen and Heisman in the same sentence, Mark May looked like he was pinching the hard one
that's what she said (x2)
he already said regardless who the coach is he will win a mnc within the next two years
Ha, we remember.
Lou's one of those inexplicable people who, even though they're wrong, just won't admit it.
What a crackpot.
While he's at it why doesn't he just suggest that Michigan try to hire Jim Tressel.
It's going to take a big man to fill Charlie's shoes. I suggest Mangino. num num num.
Seriously though, the ideas that the media has about who ND will get to replace Weis are way overblown. I'm surprised we haven't heard about how Bill Parcells or Bill Belichick would jump at the opportunity to coach at ND.
I saw last night a story about how ND would maybe want Belichick.
When I read that the Irish were interested in Billick, I thought it was a little presumptious for the Irish to go after the coach of the Patriots.
I plead lack of sleep.
They hired Greg Mattison and then Corwin Brown; that made sure they knew what UM was going to run and the best way to defend it. The best way to ensure that even if you suck, you can still compete in your rivarlry games is to hire someone from their coaching tree. I would expect ND to hire an ex-RR person as one of their coaches on defense soon, too, especially if UM wins next year.
Back to Carroll and USC, hiring the coach who has drubbed them more than any coach in history is a great way to say, "if you can't beat them, buy them."
hahahahahhahahhahahahahahahahaah! I needed a good laugh this morning.
I think ND should offer Nick Saban and Urban Meyer co-head coach positions at ND. Maybe they would turn it down, I don't know. But Notre Dame has to believe that they Saban and Meyer would be honored to co-coach Notre Dame.
You forgot co-coach Stoops, he would be honored as well.
ND should just hire God as head coach. He's on their side already anyways; He might as well just make it official.
Come on Lou, you're better than that! Petey is too dirty/shady.
Why would Lou be better than that? He got most of the schools he coached on probation.
*But*, to his favor, Petey does put more than one safety man on his kickoff team.
It would be cheaper to re-animate Knute Rockne than it would be to get Pete Carrol to leave USC for ND.
To get Carroll to go to Notre Dame.

Notre Dame needs to learn that tradition is completely irrelevant in today's college football if it isn't backed up with wins.
