Lou Holtz and Hitler: overrated

October 18, 2008
Do you think Dave Lewis auditioned for a part in “Downfall”? Also, spoked wheel ‘B’ logo > Swastika. That’s right, skin heads. I went there.

Immediately after hearing Lou Holtz say “Hitler was a great leader too” or something to that effect on “College Football Live” my facebook status changed to “James O’Brien thinks that Lou Holtz might be the worst sports analyst in human history.” Sometimes, you just get lucky and slip in when someone makes a big mistake on corporate TV and tonight was one of those nights.

Deadspin thinks that Holtz might have to play the corporate apology game or (fingers crossed) take some time off. Even before this blunder, Holtz was terrible enough to encourage a rapid channel change, but this was just stupid.

(Though I must admit there are probably more than a handful of West Virginians who would compare Rich Rodriguez to the Fuhrer)

Let’s face it, both Holtz and Adolf were overrated, although at least the failed artist accomplished the rare goal of making a style of mustache obsolete. To every one but the perennially unlucky Dave Lewis, of course.
