Hall of Fame college football coach Lou Holtz joined "The Ingraham Angle" Thursday to respond to the likelihood that the 2020 season will be severely curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic -- if there is a season at all.(snip) When you're in a leadership role, Laura, you have to look at things from both points of view. Look at it from the player's point of view, as well as from a coach's point of view," Holtz said. "The way it is right now, they just don't want to have sports and there's no way in this world you can do anything in this world without a risk.

I don't want any football players kneeling. I want them at home sitting on their bottoms on a couch. They were silent when the businesses were bankrupted. Now it is their turn to put on those masks and sit at home on their couches.

Oh Lordy,Sports fans are not going to like me, or what I have to say. Mr Holtz had a fine career teaching football. I betcha he made more money that any other professional at the schools he coached. (that is problem 1.) He had state of the art tools and equipment to guide these young men to play football for his school...regardless of the actual abilities of that student to learn. (prob#2). Then there is the all time top of the list...FTA:"My son's [Skip Holtz] the head coach at Louisiana Tech," Holtz said. "They're supposed to play Baylor [and] Vanderbilt [this fall]. Those are money games, those are very, very important to them. Now we know what is truly important in College football. So here's the deal, Mr Holtz. You provided entertainment. No more no less. That some of your students actually learned something was incidental to them playing football for you. Some of those (speaking collectively) had been pampered so much from High School and through your programs that they think THEY are the center of the universe and have taken upon themselves to act like it. Someone forgot to let them know that there is a structure to "our way of life" and they fall into the 'optional' category. Sadly, some spit in the face of millions of fans. Normally a single offense would get ignored 48hrs into the newscycle, but it wasn't just a few, was it? What the American people and a huge block of the rest of the world saw was a bunch of overpaid entertainers cry about the way life is. Bad news. We aren't taking lectures from pampered 20yr old. A large group of people decided they really didn't need your product and are not willing to pay to see it. Ask ESPN how things are going. At the College level they wanted to be like the pros. So they followed the example. It wouldn't hurt my feelings to have cut every single one of the. the program be damned, this is an educational facility, not a minor league for football. Think anyone dares ask for a new stadium right now? I'm paying a permanent tax for a stadium in a different county..because they wanted a new place. Well pay for it your self! Mr Holtz, be thankful you left the business when you did. Because it's about to undergo a shake up.

As the ND students used to chant “Lou, Lou, Lou!” I knew the schools, teachers and faculty would wimp out. Grocery store clerks and Amazon drivers, bus drivers and garbage men, and medical professionals have worked nonstop. But it is tooo risky for the teachers. And athletics will die on the vine too.

What happened to our way of life? When the very best of our smart young white sons had to give way to females. When our smart young males had to give way to gays, to Africans and Asians. That is when.

I haven't watched a down of the NFL in 3 years. Just a bunch of elitist racist thugs that hate this country but love making tons of our money playing a boys' game while disrespecting the flag and everything good it stand for. Now with the elitist racist thug college football players making "demands" of their universities to play this fall, I am pretty sure I watched my last down of college football in the last National Championship game last January. None of it is the same as it used to be any more. You used to go to a football game, sit there with people of every race, creed, color, and political belief, and just enjoy the game while rooting on your team. Hey, I guess we still have high school football, though sadly I will walk out the first time I see a kid kneel for the anthem, and I will never return again!!!

GQ Magazine was forced to issue a correction after one of its columnists misidentified former segregationist Alabama Gov. George Wallace as a Republican in an effort to smear the GOP as racist. Laura Bassett, who also writes as freelance political reporter, wrote a Wednesday op-ed titled “The Anti-Abortion Movement Was Always Built on Lies,” attempting to chronicle evangelical efforts in building up the pro-life movement. The crux of Bassett’s piece rests on the foundation that the pro-life movement was “bought and paid for the Christian right,” to morph the Republican Party into the pro-life party.

For Mother's Day, I interviewed Craig Shirley about his most recent book, "Mary Ball Washington: The Untold Story of  Story of George Washington's Mother.” Four books on Ronald Reagan, one on Newt Gingrich and one on December 1941 – my own favorite – and now you turn to George Washington’s mother?

Sen. Mitt Romney tore into President Trump’s decision to commute his ally Roger Stone’s prison sentence. “Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president,” the Utah Republican tweeted Saturday morning. [Tweet] It was the strongest statement of disapproval yet from a high-profile Republican after the White House announced on Friday that the president was commuting Stone’s entire three-year prison sentence, which does leave intact his criminal record. Stone, 67, was set to report to prison on Tuesday. An emergency appeal to extend his July 14 surrender date because of the pandemic was rejected

A major teachers union is claiming that the re-opening of schools in its district cannot occur without several substantial policy provisions in place, including a "moratorium" on charter schools and the defunding of local police. United Teachers Los Angeles, a 35,000-strong union in the Los Angeles Unified School District, made those demands in a policy paper it released this week. The organization called on local authorities to "keep school campuses closed when the semester begins on Aug. 18." The union outlined numerous major provisions it says will be necessary to reopen schools again, including sequestering students

Joe Biden’s radical proposal for the Democrat Party platform for 2020 seeks to put an end to America’s suburban communities by forcing low-income housing into every neighborhood and flooding every community with immigrants, legal or otherwise. The proposal, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide instant amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship for the 22 million illegal aliens now living in the nation. Astoundingly, it would also give legal status to all the world’s refugees regardless of the legitimacy of their claim to the status.

Air conditioning units that recirculate the same air in a room should be switched off or only used with open windows, experts have urged, amid mounting concern around the role of airborne transmission to spread Covid-19. Experts told the Telegraph that air conditioning units that only used recirculated air could exacerbate the spread of virus particles if someone was infected with Covid-19. Dr Shaun Fitzgerald, a fellow at the Royal Academy of Engineering, said there were two types of air conditioning units - ones that take air in from outside and expel it out again, or those that recirculate the same

The transcript from the body camera worn by J. Alexander Kueng shows clear evidence that George Floyd was suffering respiratory distress before police laid hands on him. He died from a Fentanyl overdose, not from being choked out by Minneapolis police.

Jeffrey Epstein went to (or was sent to) the grave keeping his secrets. However, Ghislaine Maxwell almost certainly shares the same secrets. The latest allegation is that she has or had videos of two “high profile” American politicians, as well as two other influential people, having sex with underage girls. If that’s true, it’s reasonable to believe that she has more than just those videos. A lot of famous people may soon be in trouble, although probably not Trump, who wised up a long time ago about Epstein. (snip) The Clintons were not so wise. Bill Clinton famously flew repeatedly on Epstein’s “Lolita Express” airline.
