Legendary football coach Lou Holtz is not happy with college football games being canceled.

Following the Big 10 canceling the 2020 season, Holtz appeared on Fox News to discuss the ongoing situation with coronavirus and came out in full support of games being played. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“Let’s move on with our life! When they stormed Normandy, they knew there were going to be casualties. There were going to be risks,” Holtz explained.

First off, cease and desist stealing my D-Day and World War II examples. I worked far too damn hard to have Lou Holtz go on Fox and steal my lines.

I agree with him, but he needs to choose some different words! I’ve cornered the market on using WWII examples for everything.

Secondly, how sad is that we’re now at a point in America where we just cancel football and Lou Holtz has to defend the sport on TV?

It’s honestly pathetic and shameful. It makes me sad to be an American. I honestly thought we were tougher than this.

Instead, university presidents just cancel the season when things get a little rough. We can play safely and we should be playing.

Instead, we’re cowering in fear.
