I find it hard to understand how he was such a horrible coach (and he was) yet his son coached Blythewood High's first ever football team to a State Championship.

He was, but after his inside info ran out, he was demoted.

Nope. He has been out of coaching the last few years.

I remember in the early Spurrier years people used to blast Coach Holtz because of his final season, and some of the (minor) issues he left behind. To me, Lou Holtz deserves just as much praise for where our program is now, as Steve Spurrier does.
Good post CACK ! Your assessment of "Sweet Lou" is accurate.

No offense but Lou Holtz is not the reason for our success now. Sorry but someone had to tell you that. It isnt, it is all Steve Spurrier, and you should know that.

it isn't all Steve, but to try and give Lou half the credit is laughable. Spurrier turned this program around.

Holtz winning two bowl games, particularly over Ohio State, is something worth mentioning. I don't think he has nearly as much to do with our current success that some people want to give him credit for, but Lou did help pull us out of the college football cellar, even if that's all he did.
