He told Gillespie that he does “not” have a lot of energy.”

First and foremost, let me say right away that we’re all pulling and praying for Holtz. We don’t want to see anyone get coronavirus, especially someone who is 83 years old.

As we all know, the virus impacts older people in a much different way than it does a young college athlete.

Right now, it sounds like Holtz’s main symptom is fatigue. Let’s all hope it stays that way. We damn sure don’t need the situation getting any worse.

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we read an update soon that the Notre Dame coach has kicked the virus and is feeling much better.

Get well soon, Lou. The entire world of college football is pulling for you!
