Lou Holtz Quotes

“You’ll never get ahead of anyone as long as you try to get even with him”

“If he’s got golf clubs in his truck or a camper in his driveway, I don’t hire him.”

“A lifetime contract for a coach means if you’re ahead in the third quarter and moving the ball, they can’t fire you.”

“No one has ever drowned in sweat.”

“When all is said and done, more is said than done.”

“No, but you can see it from here.“ (when asked if Fayetteville was at the end of the world)

“If you don’t make a total commitment to whatever you’re doing, then you start looking to bail out the first time the boat starts leaking. It’s tough enough getting that boat to shore with everybody rowing, let alone when a guy stands up and starts putting his jacket on.”

“Broadcasting is easy; you just talk until you think of something to say.“

“I never learn anything talking. I only learn things when I ask questions.”

“If what you did yesterday seems big, you haven’t done anything today.”

“If you burn your neighbor’s house down, it doesn’t make your house look any better.”

“The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is most likely the one who dropped it.“

“Absolutely. There are a 1000 better coaches in the cities, but I’m the best in the country.“ (when asked if he was the best coach in the country)

“To my wife…I told you I was sick.“ (Lou Holtz, when asked what he would want carved on his tombstone)

"You're never as good as everyone tells you when you win, and you're never as bad as they say when you lose.”

"If you're bored with life - you don't get up every morning with a burning desire to do things - you don't have enough goals.”

"Don't tell your problems to people: eighty percent don't care; and the other twenty percent are glad you have them”

"Show me someone who has done something worthwhile, and I'll show you someone who has overcome adversity.”

“I can't believe that God put us on this earth to be ordinary.”

"Don't be a spectator, don't let life pass you by.”

"I think everyone should experience defeat at least once during their career. You learn a lot from it.”

"On this team, we're all united in a common goal: to keep my job.”

"Coaching is nothing more than eliminating mistakes before you get fired.”

"The alumni buried me every week. The plots have a view of the dome. It's a better view if you're standing up than if you're laying down.”

"The ability of a defense to dominate and stop the run forces you into a one-dimensional game. You come out wanting to play ball control, field position, but by the second quarter, you're down by 17 and you're forced to throw.”
