Coach Lou Holtz
of the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame is quickly becoming legendary in his adherence
“When it comes
to discipline here,” Holtz says, “We ask three questions: Will it
make him a better man? A better student? A better athlete? If the answer is
yes, we make him do it. The next step is up to him. An individual has a choice
when you discipline him: either to become bitter or better.”
Judging by his
squad’s record, Lou Holtz’s charges have become better men.
