Good afternoon. Here’s the best, and worst, of today’s College GameDay signs from Knoxville—with some help from SEC Nation:
This Lee Corso-Kirk Herbstreit swordfight is unfortunately SFW.
Here, now, is a thing that happened on television.
Longtime viewers of ESPN's College GameDay have come to expect the occasional misstatement or malapropism from Lee Corso; the reality is that Coach hasn't been 100% since his 2009 stroke. Today's mistake, though, was funny enough that Chris Fowler broke down on the set Jimmy Fallon-style, taking almost half a minute…
At this point, we have no grounds for saying whether or not the duck is dead. The duck could be alive, it could be in the final, painful throes of death, it could be totally OK—maybe ducks are more resilient than they look. Maybe. We're not veterinarians. All we know is that the duck was not happy, and if those were…
Lee Corso's College GameDay schtick has for decades been his end-of-show prognostication of the day's feature game—usually involving his favored team's mascot. (Today he picked the hometown Gators to beat South Carolina, and even brought a baby alligator to the set.) But we mostly assumed his interest in the game…
We have said this before: You guys are the best. So very talented and warped and idle in ways we can't even imagine. Yesterday we showed you a wonderful photo of College Gameday's Lee Corso riding a large inflatable duck, and told you to have fun with it. You did, and these are some of our favorites.
ESPN's College GameDay crew is out at USC, shooting some commercials. One of the behind-the-scenes photos is Lee Corso, wearing a 1920s swimsuit and riding a big yellow duck raft. Click the picture to enlarge, and please make some photoshops of this. Put them in the comments, and we'll feature the best later.
The Battle for Oklahoma, and other flyover states rages on as another Lee Corso f-bomb makes it on air. Sort of. Talk about it down below.
So, first it was Lee Corso asking about the whereabouts of "that little kid" while ESPN cameras zoomed in on the Penn State huddle. Today, he kicked it up a notch with a wonderful F-bomb.
Either Lee Corso is a comedic genius, or this is one of the more unfortunately timed hot mic gaffes in some time.
This is an outtake from the promos ESPN's shot for College Gameday, featuring analyst Lee Corso and LSU boss Les Miles. Strangely, it's no less informative than the real thing.
The ESPN transparency project, otherwise known as the giving of a different name to public relations, otherwise known as "Front Row," released the company's new endorsement policies last week and came out with a list of its commentators' "endorsement relationships" this morning. We documented a fair number of these…
Last week, The New York Times reported that three ESPN College GameDay anchors — Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, and Lee Corso — have had shoe contracts with Nike. We've known about Erin Andrews's endorsement deal with Reebok for some time, but the news that these three have worn Nike and agreed to speaking…
Former Texas A&M Coach R.C. Slocum seems like a stand-up guy. That's why we think he won't mind us highlighting some of his favorite photos through the years, as posted on his Facebook page.
