Didn't he pick us over Oregon in 2015 and we were underdogs there? Or were we the favorites?

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

Ohio State was a touchdown underdog to Oregon

The Bucks were underdogs in all three of the post season games that year

God bless and go Bucks.

30 picks and never the dog in big games.

Ohio State has been an underdog in big games [see 2015 Sugar Bowl]; Corso [wrongly] picked the favored teams, instead.

Game Day, with no college crowd in the background, is pretty lame.

Need to edit the cover article; calls him "Corson" = "Lee Corson picks Ohio State as an underdog for the first time, donning the Brutus mascot head"

Living the life!  Go Buckeyes!  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Why is Desmond Howard always laughing? Is it meant to be a psychological ploy like the laugh track on sitcoms?

Some consultant clearly told every studio analyst to fake laugh at everything anyone ever says. I have no idea why.

He's like the guy on the end of the couch on the late-night shows.  Laughing at the host's jokes is his only job.

I was thinking of Ed, of course, but wasn't sure if the younger end of the 11W commentariat would be able to relate.  (I just looked it up, and JC has been off the air for almost 30 years. Yikes!)  I also didn't know that he was from THAT state.

I’m actually starting to think that’s what his role is. Because it sure as hell isn’t talking about football intelligently.

Fact of the day:  Out of 351 total "headgear" picks, Corso's accuracy is 65%. 

Book the Nola flight.

65% isn't a passing grade lol

HS

Still is the majority, FWIW

That's a Buckeye touchdown!

HS
BigTom's picture

In gambling on sports?  Keep in mind when he picks with headgear its usually a big game.  Its not OSU vs SW La Tech.   I’d say 65% in competitive games is pretty darn good.

if you're talking gambling - corso % means nothing - he picks straight - no line.

I mean it is College Gameday, and 65% typically = a D in college. Thus D’s get degree’s lol. Go Bucks

I grew up watching Lee and College Gameday, & have a lot of good memories watching that show. Love his head gear picks, & hes always seemed to be in our corner. However, I think it’s time he retires. As a man who was once so sharp, it PAINS me to watch him struggle through his words each Saturday.

HS

I havent watched gameday since week 3 because i just cant watch him. I love the guy but absolutely agree he should retire.

Kinda like when ABC kept trotting Dick Clark out there for New Year's Eve after he had a stroke. That was really hard to watch.

Corso to me is for entertainment, not analysis. As long as he's having fun, I say let him do his thing. I think ESPN should just adjust his parts as he gets older. Let the younger folks do the X's and O's. On that note, I would can Desmond Howard in a heartbeat before Corso. Corso at least provides some laughs. Howard is just a mouth breather taking space.

Number one, win the rivalry game. And number two, win every game after that.

I hope not.  That said, I haven’t watched ESPN at all this season.   The FOX show is much better.

Lee Corso is the only class on that set. The man had a stroke, so he can't be judged on the quality of his work. But he has a true passion for football and he doesn't have the bias of the other bus waxers on that set.

Go Bucks!

HS
buckeye1964's picture

name your issue with herbstreit? i general, he does a good job -  hell, he's picked ohio state as the best team all year.

danny

HS
Bucks62's picture

Are you just trying to pick a fight? I saw you ask this to someone yesterday also. Anybody who has watched Herbstreit over the years can legitimately not like the way he generally overcompensates (against the Buckeyes) to show how he is not biased. It has helped make him a national success, but it does not mean that Ohio State fans have to like it or him. Also, his two boys are on the Clemson football team. Hopefully this answers your question so you quit asking anytime someone says something negative about Herbstreit. 

HS
CowCat's picture

I personally don't care what Herbstreit says, but the hate he has gotten from the rotten portion of the OSU fanbase is real. He moved his family out of Ohio for a reason, and he talked about it (I'm too lazy to dig up a link).

The point being that Herbstreit is held to a collective standard that we don't hold other former Buckeyes to. Everyone is happy for Joe Burrow at LSU, but if Herbstreit says anything that can be perceived as remotely negative towards Ohio State, the haters are waiting.

Kind of agree with what is said about Corso and his age and stuff, but really, you gotta love the guy. I think he makes college game day what it is. Wouldn't look right if one of the other guys put on the headgear instead of Corso. I hope he stays....!!

HS

that tradition should die when corso leaves the show - anyone else does it - they look like an idiot. only corso can pull it off right.

Always enjoyed Coach Corso years ago.  But since the guy on the left joined have had greater and greater difficulty watching.  Then Fox coming along this year made it easy.  

Both guys mentioned are difficult to understand.  But I have sympathy and maybe even admiration of Coach for staying after it.  But at some point ............

Corso and the orangutan agree.  

I wish they had been correct though...
