    There's so many people that I dislike on ESPN, but Holtz has to be near the top. He doesn't use any logic in making his picks on his weekly segment with Mark May. He's a huge South Carolina and Notre Dame homer still. And he spits too much! I feel bad for Mark May, as he's one of my favorite ESPN analysts but he gets stuck with Holtz. Anybody else not like Lou?

    Mark may is a bigger homer than Holtz could ever be and that is saying something. I love ND and I will say Lou is a huge homer.

    Mark may hates certain schools and will never ever say anything positive about those schools and then proven wrong he does nothing but fold his arms and sits there without saying a word.

    As much as I love Lou's passion for ND I honestly do not think either of those guys should be on to discuss there views because neither will give an honest thought out insightful input into the discussion.

    I don't like Holtz either. His "pep talk" segment just drives me crazy and I can't stand to watch a game when he is in the booth. The guy was a great coach, but he has no business being a studio analyst or broadcasting a game.

    Or his Ditka-like incompletion of words. That gets on my nerves. Then again, I've disliked him since his Arkansas days. Notre Dame didn't exactly help either.

    Yes but talking to yourself does not count.
