    College Gameday

    What's up with Corso straight up reading off a piece of paper? He keeps stumbling over his words and seems really unprepared.

    Well, he did have a stroke over the summer. I'm sure that has something to do with it.

    I noticed something was "different" with him.
    My first thought was that he was having a stroke on the air.

    Ohhhh, I had no idea he had a stroke. I'm a bit behind the times I guess.

    He was talking about his stroke earlier.

    He seems to be having more trouble today than other times I've seen him this season. Wouldn't be surprised to see him hang it up after this year, but that's just a guess.

    Re: College Gameday

    Who does ESPN replace Lee Corso with when he decides to leave? I could see them moving you-know-who out of the studio and on site.

    I personally think Chris Fowler is the only truly informed source on the show. Kirk is much too biased by his contacts.

    I like him, but I think they replace Corso with someone of age and coaching history.

    That might be fun, but the guy has little knowledge about college sports. He's a pro guy.

    If by "you-know-who" you're talking about a certain former Notre Dame coach, I doubt it. ESPN has to know how most viewers feel about him. I doubt they'd trot him out there. Besides, would he have any interest in traveling to the locations every week?

    I think they will just have three guys if Corso hangs it up. Just Kirk, Chris, and Desmond.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: College Gameday

    You can tell that Kirk is trying to prop Corso up on today's show.

    I also believe that this will be Corso's last year, and I also agree that they'll try to find an older retired coach to replace him, but who? Phil Fulmer? Lloyd Carr (LOL)? Dave McCartney?
