College Gameday is the way most of us choose to start our football Saturdays (unless,you’re a Spectrum subscriber, more on that HERE) and an important part of College Gameday is the legendary Lee Corso.
The 88 year old Corso is onboard again for the season, and while you’d be hard pressed to find anyone that isn’t happy to see him, there are some concerns that Father Time might be politely tapping him on the shoulder.
Social media was so vocal about Corso that he was trending #2 on Saturday morning only behind the death of musical legend Jimmy Buffett.
Have a look…

I think we are all happy that he is physically able to be there, and honestly, he doesn’t look horrible
But seeing Lee Corso like this is just depressing… getting old sucks pic.twitter.com/undPzwug0x

Watching Lee Corso is like watching Joe Biden or Mitch McConnell. Please ESPN, you’re doing more harm than good to his great legacy.

Y’all keep talking shit about Lee Corso but he’s going to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2028

ESPN. Let Lee Corso rest, he’s done enough for us.

Lee Corso is a legend and has always been my favourite part of #collegegameday over the years but the man isn't well enough to do this anymore. Give him a graceful send-off and rehire David Pollack so someone on the show has an IQ above room temperature https://t.co/LqrvfEOgx2

Age and sports commentary have always led to controversy because there isn’t always uniformity. NBA commentator Hubie Brown does highly regarded analyst work for ESPN well into his 80s.
