Welp, good to see Lou Holtz is going to be bringing more of the same crazy talk he brought in 2008. Which is great. Aside from him claiming that Notre Dame was a Top 25 team throughout the entire season last year, it was hilarious whenever that man went on a sometimes-profanity laced rant. Just great, I love Lou Holtz on TV, but not for his analysis. :P

When Emmitt Smith was on TV, he was easily the biggest homer on ESPN. Anything that he said would always somehow end up coming back to the Dallas Cowboys in some way, shape, or form. Same with Michael Irvin when he worked with ESPN. It's weird that even though he does 5 or 6 Cowboys games a year, Troy Aikman manages to stay neutral when it comes to them, compared to the other 2 of the big 3 who couldn't seem to be quiet about the Cowboys.

Lou Holtz is a clown and he knows it. He thinks he's this funny celebrity type and overdoes every bit of his on-air time. To me he comes across as this weird grandpa-type, flailing and spitting on himself. Not a fan.

And just throwing this out there, but who is the biggest homer on ESPN/National TV?

How about the entire ESPN network for a start?

They aren't homers. Just bandwagon jumpers. Get it right. :P

Why is Lou Holtz on ESPN again? That's one of the most blatant homer picks I have every heard...

The comedy. You can't beat the comedy. And the threats on Mark May's life. Gotta hold him in check.

He's the physical avatar of the Notre Dame football program. What do you expect him to say?

If you're gonna have the hater in Mark May, you gotta have the lover in Lou Holtz.

Anyways, if you believe ND is better than everyone else on their schedule except for USC, that means they only have to upset one team to run the table. Just sayin'

If they were homers we'd still have the Whalers :P.

The adored the Whalers on ESPN, the problem was Hartford was too small of market and in the middle of a cluster of teams in a bad arena.

Not that Granny Clampett has a vote, but it's crap like this that reminds me why 1) NCAA preseason polls are an absolute joke. 2) Voting should NEVER determine the National Champion.

Hahahahahahaha. Thank you for this. But yes, Lou Holtz spends his air-time rambling on and on about things he thinks he knows but doesn't. There's no need for him on ESPN, except for the comedy.

On the subject of homers, he's not on TV but on radio - Ron Santo. listen to a Cubs game and it won't take long.

Let's not forget the occasional, inexplicable Godwinning. Which apparently spurred someone in the Republican party to say, "That's our man!"

But at the same time, does one win over one good team get you into the BCS title game? It hasn't worked for Utah or Boise State.
