Except former Nebraska star Jason Peter, that is:
"I still wouldn't turn down the opportunity to spit in Lou Holtz's (bleeping) face ... Each Saturday in the fall when Holtz makes his jovial, dumb ... remarks on ESPN, I hope he knows that there's at least one family on the other side of the screen, the Peter family, that knows what a -- -- -- he really is."Anyone with even the slightest skills at expletive inferral knows what "bleeping" is, but the three sets of double en dashes are mysterious, aren't they? This is fun. I would like to know what those are as long as I don't have to buy Peter's book, which is about his heroic triumph over a bunch of drugs.
Why is the Peter family so anti-Holtz? Peter relates that his younger brother was a highly touted offensive lineman who committed to Notre Dame shortly before he broke a vertebra in his neck. Holtz never called or visited, though two Notre Dame assistants did, and in the fall Damien was "frozen out, ignored, discarded" by Holtz and company.
IMO: weak sauce. Probably hyped up to sell books.
