Pie's Corner: Think Lou Holtz is a little Biased?

Tim PiekarzContributor IAugust 28, 2008

The things that come out of Coach Holtz’s mouth sometimes amazes’ me. I think he argues most of the time, just for the sake of arguing with Mark May.

The guy knows football he has coached for more than 30 years with an all time record of 249-132-7. With 12 Bowl wins and 1 National Championship, so you think you can trust the coach’s opinion.

But he is the most biased sports analyst I have ever seen. Notre Dame went 3-9 last year and got sacked over 50 times. That’s 4 ½ sacks a game on the Notre dame quarterbacks Clausen was running for his life. They basically were last in every offensive category in the country even with the great offensive mind of Charlie Weis you has not proved himself yet in college football. The only wins that this team had were against Duke, Stanford and UCLA.

After all of the shame from last year Holtz says Notre Dame will win 10 to 11 games this year. What? I don’t get where he’s coming from, or his thought on this team getting back to glory so soon.

Holtz said, “Everybody on the offense is coming back this year, and there ready to play in a big bowl this year”. Wait? The same team that lost to Navy for the first time in 44 years is ready to play in a BCS game.

I don’t think so; they still have huge questions on the offensive line and defensive line. Clausen still looks and acts like a high school quarterback when he’s out there on the gridiron.

Another Holtz moment is when he said, when you go to Notre dame you expect to win every game you play and how that’s why they’re so different from other schools.

I think Mark May said it right that, “Ohio State, USC, Florida and Oklahoma only want to win some games but not all of them. No they want to win them all too”.

I don’t know about anyone else but I don’t think Notre Dame Players are any different than all the other players for other teams in the country. Everyone’s focuses is Winning and leaving it all on the field.
