Holtz is great. Met him a few times and read his book. An inspiring guy

Glad he doesn’t kneel to the mob and get politically correct

Lou is indirectly attacking Biden because Louís entire philosophy is that only YOU can control your actions and YOU are accountable for your own actions. Yes, he attacked Bidenís Catholicism, but heís not technically wrong. Jenkins is towing the libe of forgiveness and imperfection but you can see how thatís tough for someone who holds himself to a higher standard and devout. But, in the end, Lou was a great coach because he demanded his players be accountable for their own actions, regardless where they came from or what had happened to them before. Those are values of progress and success. Anything else is a recipe for failure.

The idea of Louís philosophy of personal responsibility is laughable when applied to support Donald Trump, who will do anything to avoid responsibility.

Where was Lou and his philosophy when nonviolent protesters were tear gassed for a photo op with a bible from a person who doesnít go to church, but wants to court evangelicals?

Where was the commentary from Lou about the sincerity of Donald Trump?

Because Donald Trump is the epitome of accountability. By his own words, he's never asked for forgiveness for anything.


I am sure Donald Trump is a better Christian and Catholic than Joe Biden. He drinks his "little wine" and eats his "little cracker".

Probably hiding in his mansion along with every other affluent citizen who remains unaffected by the chaos unfolding across our nation....

Iím tired of all the sports people thinking I give a **** about their opinions. I just want to watch the guys play! If they want to be politicians then they should throw their hat in the ring and run for office. Until then they should just do their jobs like the rest of us and let us appreciate people being good at their job.
