Clemson Football: The worst College Football Playoff committee ever

If I could come up with the perfect CFP committee, then I could also come up with a nightmare committee. Here are thirteen people we should hope never make any important decisions for the playoffs.

Lou Holtz

I’m going on the record, no matter the consequences: Lou Holtz was a really good head coach.

He has a national championship with Notre Dame. “Yeah, but it was Notre Dame!” OK, well name one person who has done it since.

He was winless in his first season at South Carolina and then took them to two consecutive bowl victories over Ohio State. He took William & Mary to a bowl game for goodness sake.

The man can coach. He is also a complete BS artist.

I suppose that can be a good thing for a head coach. Holtz made it an annual thing to convince everyone that Navy could beat Notre Dame. When I was a kid it was kind of funny.

When he took his schtick to College Football Final, it was kind of funny. Until it wasn’t.

Has he had some good one-liners? Yes, but after a while the act was just unstomachable. Holtz was finally dismissed from CFF and I wondered if we would miss him.

Every time he has popped up on the radar since it made me realize “Yeah, CFF made the right call.”

He decided to play the heel when he got a chance to take the mic before this season’s Notre Dame vs Ohio State game, and I suppose if you aren’t a Ryan Day fan you might have enjoyed it, but for me, it just reiterated that the man was never really able to be straightforward and genuine. Lou Holtz without an act is nothing useful at all.
