Lou Holtz Goes Off On Colt McCoy During Late Night Segment

Monday, October 13, 2008

I was going to make the title "Lou Holtz Temporarily Loses His Mind", but I'm pretty sure it's officially gone at this point. Holtz was doing the late night College Football show with Rece Davis and Mark May late Saturday night/early Sunday, when they decided to have a little debate. Holtz had Tim Tebow, May had Texas QB Colt McCoy and Davis was moderator. Watch as Lou, who thinks they've gone to commercial, flips out after Davis gave the win to May following the debate. Via CFT...

That was just amazingly awkward and somehow still hilarious! The guy never ceases to amaze me. I think I'm going to coin a new term in this spot and that is the "Trainwreckability Scale" (which has no affiliation with Simmons' "Unintentional Comedy Scale"). Right now Lou Holtz's trainwreckabiltiy is sitting at an easy 95 out of 100. After his pep talk this week, he could shoot past 100.

Oh and the other thing is.....he was right. Colt McCoy was not a great QB last year and there were no stipulations about the debate being just for this year or just for one game.

That's hilarious but you can see why guys like Holtz and May were exceptional athletes and/or coaches. Lou said it. He hates to lose whether it was a Saturday afternoon on the field or made up debate on an ESPN set.

He lost because it was a DEBATE and Lou doesn't speak English.

Aspeaking of trainwrecks and on air cursing, last night after the ball skimmed him a 2nd time and subsequently hit into a double play, Fox showed Dodgers' catcher Russell Martin heading into the dugout screaming the f-bomb, unedited.

1) LOu Holtz was correct. Tebow is the better college qb
2) Holtz has won more games than most have even watched.
3) He should have made sure the Mike's were off, and then launched further into his defense
4) You cannot debate the heart of a winner

Dr. Lou was right

Why crack on an elder of NCAA. Holtz knows quite a bit about football...certainly more than the common wank job that posts here.

Holtz is all right. Of course, I can't understand him when he speaks so that sucks.

It was obvious Lou had no idea he was on air and, even though I'm not a fan, it was unfair to let him go off like that instead of just cutting to commercial. Maybe someone there was trying to get rid of Dr. Lou and hoping he would say something that would get him fired.
