Lou Holtz: US Should Hold People Accountable for Their Choices

Legendary college football coach and ESPN analyst Lou Holtz tells Newsmax TV that his advice to graduates is to make the most of every opportunity.

That said, he told host J.D. Hayworth on "Newsmax Prime" on Monday that any rumors he might seek political office are unfounded.

"No, there's absolutely no chance," Holtz said when asked about running to fill the U.S. Senate seat in Florida being vacated by GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio.

"I'm so old now, my birthday candles cost more than the cake," Holtz said. "I don't want to run for the Senate. I just want to run after my wife of 54 years."

But Holtz said that he hopes whoever is elected to the office is someone who will hold people accountable for the choices they make.

"Whatever you are, good or bad, it's because of the choice you make," Holtz said. "Choose to do drugs, drop out of school, join a gang, have five children out of wedlock, get tattooed from head to bottom — you're choosing to have difficulty in life, and don't blame me for the decisions you make. We don't hold people accountable for choices."
