Former Notre Dame coach and ESPN analyst Lou Holtz says he has COVID-19

Former Notre Dame and South Carolina coach Lou Holtz has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

The 83-year-old former ESPN analyst told ABC Columbia that he was feeling lethargic.

“I don’t have a lot of energy right now,” Holtz said.

Holtz is not the first legendary former college football coach to reveal a COVID-19 diagnosis. Former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden was hospitalized with COVID-19 earlier this fall. Bowden said in a statement after he was discharged from the hospital that he wanted to survive COVID-19 so that he could vote for President Donald Trump in the Nov. 3 presidential election.

Holtz has become more known for his political appearances recently. Like Bowden, Holtz is an avowed Trump supporter. He gave a speech at the Republican National Convention in August and questioned president-elect Joe Biden’s Catholic faith.

In August, Holtz said that college football teams should go ahead and play football as scheduled in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. He compared playing the season to the World War II storming of Normandy in a Fox News appearance.

“When they stormed Normandy, they knew that there were going to be casualties, there was gonna be risk,” Holtz continued. “Two percent of the people that go to the emergency room go for COVID-19. But young people, Bill, they think it’s like cancer. They think they’re gonna die.”

4. Bobby Bowden has always been a real stool sample, and I don't

mean oak or cherry.

Lou Holtz is useless and needs to buy some dentures that fit, although that may be a moot point now. Oh well!

5. As a life long fan of Notre Dame football, I am disgusted by Lou Holtz

If the university shares his opinions, I will find another team to follow.

6. From the link

Holtz’s remarks drew a quick rebuke from Notre Dame. The school said the next day that Holtz’s use of his status as Notre Dame’s former coach “must not be taken to imply that the University endorses his views, any candidate or any political party.”

9. Good coach but a lousy human being

A second hand story via one of my late father's friends who was in the administration @
the University of Arkansas when Holtz was there said Holtz was an ass. Lou walked into
the A.D.'s office (Frank Broyles) and demanded more money or he would go some place
else to which the A.D. told him to please go someplace else because he was tired of Holtz's
act.

10. Holtz once said something along the lines

that his High School Graduating class wasn't big on the smarts, and he was last in his class.

Yep. About right.
