I absolutely love Lou Holtz!

For cryin' out loud—as this charismatic old coaching codger likes to say—how could anyone not absolutely adore this soon-to-be 74-year-old after listening to his commentary during last night’s coverage of the FedEx Orange Bowl featuring the Stanford Cardinal and the Virginia Tech Hokies?

Lou Holtz's candid college football coverage carries clout! Viewers are immediately smitten by the outspoken purity of this grandfatherly pigskin pundit and television's atypical talking head.

Who cares if this retired coach sports a face for radio rather than network television? This colorful commentator is welcome in my living room any day of the week.

The former Notre Dame, South Carolina and Minnesota head football coach may mispronunciate, inarticulate and mis-syllabicate whenever he opens his mouth, but who the heck cares?

The immensely lovable Lou emanates total trust, prognosticates with passion and purpose and generates unbridled enthusiasm out of the ESPN SportsCenter studio.

Football fans look quickly past his saucer shaped spectacles, learn to live with his lovable lisp, and humor him for his histrionics and hair-brained hunches...all because they too absolutely love Lou Holtz!


Straight talk. No static.
