NCAAF  > General NCAAF  > Lou Holtz the worst announcer ever
December 29, 2008, 02:33 PM
Total know it all and master at stating the obvious and as annoying as a whinny old man can get.

Does anyone like this guy?

I mean as an announcer/color man whatever ESPN says he is, not talking about his coaching days.

Anyone see Holtz' Tom Cruise impression last night? It was actually amusing.

I used to hate Lou Holtz, but it's hard to hate somebody who's that old and that far out of touch with reality. The porch lights are on, but nobody's home.

Well I'm old, but only out of touch with things that don't matter anymore. Be sure sure you hope and pray that when you get to his age you still have you're #%*@ together. Your day is coming, I can guarantee it. He's not one of my favorites, but I would enjoy his talks much more than some split tail telling me about college football. He's forgot more than you or I will ever know.

I guess you've never seen Matt Millen on TV. I'm absolutely convinced a gerbil could do every job he's had, and do it better.

On related note, if anyone saw the Wazzu-USC game, and I know that's a stretch, I think one of the announcers was Spicolli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. It was like watching a High School football game from 1988 on public access, from the broadcasting to the production.

I went to a conference once and he was the speaker at the 0900 meeting...everyone was still sleep-walking and grumbling. But, I tell you, when he was done, we were ALL reared up and ready to go. He is a very dynamic motivator.....

Why am I even here, if everyone else is high as hell? Brent Mussberger is a dogdamn legend the size of Howard Cossell. "you are looking live... at my nards". Sincerely, the man is American sports commentary royalty, and for anyone to say an ill word about him is blasphemy. In other words it's like saying that John Smith was a total liar about his book of Mormon. Shut your feces eating faces. Brent!!! Brent!!!! Brent!!! Who the **** names their kid Brent!?!??!!
