    ESPN Gameday

    Let me start by saying that first off, this is the best pregame show in any sport on any level. NFL pregame shows are overcrowed, forced and lack chemistry. Fowler, Corso, Herbie and in recent years, Desmond Howard, form a great unit and do a phenomenal job.

    That being said, I think it might be time for Corso to hang it up. I'm watching today and I can't tell if he's sick or just lost his voice or something, but he sounds terrible, and he's yet to say anything of significance, and sounds confused/unsure when he's making his arguments.

    Corso is a legend and everyone loves when he dons the mascot attire at the end of the show. He's gotten to that point where he's almost laughed at more than he's taken seriously though (The Lou Holtz Factor).

    I doubt ESPN will replace him any time in the next 5-10 years, but I wouldn't mind seeing DiNardo from the B10 Network on there.

    Corso had a stroke back on May 16 - he had to relearn how to read and write. Give him a break.

    I was unaware of that. This is probably his first go through on a broadcast since that happened, so that might explain the shaky voice.

    That being said, he has slipped in recent years and this isn't something I just noticed today.

    Re: ESPN Gameday

    I was wondering why Corso wasn't around for all the pre-season stuff on sportscenter. I hope he recovers, he is by far my favorite analysts.

    And Tebow is a d-bag. If I played was on the same team as him, I'd kill myself.

    Re: ESPN Gameday

    Say what you will about Tebow, but if Florida wins the NC this year and he has another good year, he'll go down as THE GREATEST COLLEGE QB TO EVER PLAY. Just like everyone else, I get a little tired of all the stories and all the hype, but the guy has delivered and should continue to deliver. His talent, desire and success is undeniable. He's a special person and a special player.

    Here's a link about his stroke:

    After stroke, Corso thankful, goal-oriented - USATODAY.com

    This is a big day for him, after a long road back.
