Lou Holtz is a beloved man of ESPN. If you don’t know him, get to know him. He is one of the nicest people you would probably come in contact with as you can tell by his fun-loving personality on ESPN. He’s so nice he even flips out at Rece Davis and flips a podium in the process while walking off set. Wait, what?

Yes, Holtz was on a recent ESPN ‘courtroom’ segment in which Davis acted as the judge while Holtz and Mark May were left to debate on the state of the Texas Longhorns‘ football program. Holtz made his point, then it was May’s turn and he apparently swayed Judge Davis’ decision.

Check out the video here:

The old coach took offense to the situation, calling out Davis for not knowing anything about college football because he is “waiting for college basketball to get here”. He claimed he was getting picked on and flipped a podium on his way off the set.

You could tell that Davis and May were laughing awkwardly in order to keep the set in good spirits, seemingly trying to trick the audience to think that it was somewhat of a joke, but it didn’t seem to be that.

Holtz has had some rants before, but this one took the cake. He gets fired up about college football and he doesn’t care who sees. This went too far, though. Lou acted like a baby and whined because he was getting picked on by a guy who knew nothing but college basketball — apparently.

Tough day for Lou.
