For many years, Lee Corso has been a beloved member of the faculty soccer group. His legendary “headgear choose” simply made its twenty fourth anniversary, with the primary coming again on Oct. 5, 1996, when he donned the top of Brutus the Buckeye to select Ohio State to beat Penn State. But some followers suppose it is likely to be time for Corso to go down the headgear onto another person.
On Saturday’s episode of College GameDay, Corso appeared to look a bit off his rocker. When it got here his flip to select a winner between Alabama and Ole Miss, he picked… Texas? Oops.
Other followers have been involved once they noticed Scooter choose Florida over Texas A&M, and comply with it up with a Florida State chop. But not so quick, my mates. Corso performed his faculty ball at FSU and earned each his bachelor’s diploma in bodily training in 1957 and a grasp’s diploma in administration and supervision in 1958. He’s all the time achieved the chop when choosing the rival Gators.

There’s little doubt that Corso is a revered soccer thoughts. As a defensive again at Florida State, he set a faculty file for profession interceptions (14) that stood for greater than twenty years. He then jumped straight into teaching, spending the following 11 years as an assistant earlier than getting his first head teaching job at Louisville in 1969. Corso coached the Cardinals for 4 seasons earlier than transferring on to Indiana (1973-1982). He then returned in 1984 to educate Northern Illinois, and coached the Orlando Renegades within the USFL in 1985.
Corso joined ESPN as an analyst on the GameDay crew in 1987 and has been making faculty soccer extra enjoyable for followers ever since. But all good issues should come to an finish finally, and with Corso turning 85 earlier this 12 months, there’ll quickly be a day when he will not get to make us all smile as he places on a mascot helmet.
But, fortunately for all of us, as we speak will not be that day.
