Lou was a friend of my grandfather's back in East Liverpool and was always a class act to our family. My great grandfather was the mayor of East Liverpool and always made a point to bring Lou back for every town event that he could. I still have a framed photo of Lou that he signed when I was just a little kid. It read, "Joston, hope you come to Notre Dame. -Lou Holtz"
Even if you don't care for Notre Dame, the way he would stand up to Mark May should be more than enough reason to like this man. He's a class act and an East Liverpool treasure that's possibly even bigger than the glorious Hot Dog Shoppe.
