Lou Holtz officially loses it


ESPN’s Lou Holtz made headlines earlier this year when he predicted Notre Dame would make it to the BcS title game.

Just moments ago, Holtz dropped trou on national television and showed just how truly deep his Irish bias goes.

The former ND coach said the following of Charlie Weis during halftime of the Ohio State-Navy game: “He is the most underrated football coach in the country.”

I’m just… I can’t really… wow.

Did he mean scrutinized?  Does he not know what the word “underrated” mean?

It’s truly one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in my lifetime, that Holtz is gainfully employed on television on a weekly basis.  Amazing.
