Lee Corso Curse: ESPN College Gameday Announcer Drops Expletive, And An Apology

11/19/11 12:41 PM ET   AP

HOUSTON — ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso always ends the "College Gameday" show in outrageous fashion.

On Saturday, he accidentally added a profanity.

On set for the SMU-Houston game, Corso got tangled up with his SMU prop, a cheerleader's megaphone, prompting a two-word vulgar outburst as he tried to make his pick for the game. Corso then put on the Houston mascot head – muffled a few seconds too late.

Corso later came back on air during ESPN's broadcast of the Nebraska-Michigan game to apologize.

"Earlier today on `College Gameday while picking the SMU-Houston game I got a bit excited and used an expletive that I shouldn't have used," Corso said. "I apologize and can promise it won't happen again."

Bleacher Report
Ummm... That would be an F-bomb from Lee Corso.

David O'Brien
What the Corso? Lee just dropped an F-bomb on live TV doing his "headgear pick." Best moment of the year on GameDay.

Lee "Dice" Corso.
