ESPN's Lou Holtz continues his string of outlandish comments, saying Notre Dame will play Florida for the Bowl Championship Series title. "They're focused," he said when talking about the Fighting Irish.
Granted, ESPN is entertainment more than information, but one has to wonder why the network continues to employ Holtz. From his comments last fall referencing Adolf Hitler when talking about Rich Rodriguez, to his appearance on a political talk show or flirtation with a run for Congress in the offseason, he continues to explore the boundaries on acceptable behavior for an on-air personality.
The warning signs are many, and something tells us that when the Holtz-ESPN relationship finally ends, it won't be pretty.
