Twitter is abuzz right now with some funny reactions to the 2013 Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, and that's solely because Lou Holtz is one of the three announcers for the ESPN telecast.

The Sheraton Hawaii Bowl announced on December 13 that a trio would be calling the game, per a press report:

The announce team for the 2013 SHERATON HAWAI‘I BOWL – to be televised on ESPN – includes longtime ESPN anchor Steve Levy along with analysts Hall of Fame coach Lou Holtz and former NFL lineman Mark May. Former volleyball standout Maria Taylor will be on the sideline.

Not to take away from Oregon State's first-half thrashing of Boise State in a game that could turn into a shootout, but Lou Holtz is all the conversation via Twitter.

Holtz is best known for coaching the Notre Dame Fighting Irish and winning the 1988 national championship. However, he's been getting a lot of attention for his crazy antics on ESPN, working as a college football analyst. He's gotten into some crazy debates with Mark May (see the embedded video).

Now, the conversation for Holtz shifts to Twitter during his live appearance on national television as an announcer.

Oregon State beat writer Lindsey Schnell is catching up with the action via Twitter:

Now, let's see what some of you all are saying. Barstool Sports blogger Big Cat tweeted the following:

A clear jab at Holtz's distinguishable voice. College football writer Bryan Fischer tweeted this:

A quick sly towards Holtz's word pronunciation. Who doesn't love how Holtz says Oregon? But Twitter user @LarryPankey doesn't appreciate the pronunciation of Oregon, as he tweeted:

Maybe Holtz will take to Twitter for some constructive criticism. And after a soldier makes his way home for the holidays to surprise his family, aired during the bowl game, WDRB in Louisville sports reporter Steve Andress didn't appreciate what Holtz had to say:

For Andress and others, Holtz ruined a perfect moment. Clearly ESPN made sure to pair May and Holtz together because of their arguments on College Football Live. Remember when Holtz called May an idiot? Sidenote: I don't remember. But see the video embedded for a quick refresher.

Here's what Twitter has to say about the pair. @VTCaceClosed tweeted:

Sorry bud; they can be funny! Maybe? But user @D_EmmertProd is not too happy with ESPN and tweeted the following:

I'm not sure who is in charge, but it appears that Holtz and May will last the game. On the other hand, there is one Twitter user who likes Holtz calling the game. On Christmas Eve, @MetzCamfield tweeted:

Indeed it has! And finally, the tweet of the night comes from Paul Wezner of TigsTown. You can credit Holtz for the wording, as Wezner tweeted this:

Oy! Go to Twitter, and search "Lou Holtz" to keep up with the conversation. I wonder what Holtz will say next?
