Lee Corso Picks Mississippi State Over Kentucky

Most of the crew on College GameDay believes the Cats will bounce back after a close loss to Florida. Desmond Howard, Young Jeezy and Kirk Herbstreit picked UK to win on the road in Starkville for the first time since 2008.

“Kavosiey Smoke, the freshman running back has been tremendous and I really like what Sawyer Smith did as well,” said Herbstreit. “The balanced attack and I think it’s a game that inspires Kentucky after a gut-wrenching loss last week to Florida.”

Lee Corso stood alone as the only analyst to pick a Mississippi State victory. Corso picking against the Cats, a tradition unlike any other.

    Love Corso but he is dead wrong (hopefully) on the UK game.

    Corso is such a douche. I have no idea why they still have him on there. Half the time, he doesn’t even know what teams they’re talking about. His antics are so old. Getting someone else would be such a refreshing change. And a former coach of IU and UofL will NEVER pick our Cats. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him pick us once.

    He has never picked UK to win. As clueless as Lou Holtz.

      Now that’s funny. / As for Corso he’s basically there on Emeritus status. He has no ability to make a sensible pick and it’s unfortunate.

    I just told my wife that Lee Corso‘s college coaching record was 73-85-6. She says he was a bad coach and what does he know about football. We also discussed that he coached at Louisville and Indiana. So now we know he know why he always picks against us.

    He’s the Dick Vitale of college football

    If we are underdogs, he picks the other team to “win big”. If we are favored, he always says “Upset!” It’s such a blatant bias. Someone should seriously call the guy out. If they ever do come back to Lex., we need the guest UK picker to call the him out big time.

    Cordova is the football version of Dick Vitale. Time to retire Corso!

    Get off Corso, he’s not on there for his deep college football insight…..didn’t think that needed to be pointed out. You people getting upset that an old man didn’t pick your team to win need to get out and get some fresh air

      Funny. Why watch a college football pregame show? Not for the insight, surely! It’s for his circus antics! Oh! Of course! Why would we want former players and coaches to show us and tell us about the nuances of the game?! That’s just boring! When I started watching the show in the 90’s, Corso wasn’t a joke. He gained the spot for his insight into the game. Over the years, he’s lost that. He doesn’t bring anything to the show now but cringeworthy moments of senility and bad jokes. He’s not even as good as Vitale. He just keeps repeating the “Not so fast” gimmick that somehow caught on and the idiotic mascot head that all the attending fans wait for. That’s it. That’s ALL he is now. That is what is so annoying about him. Yes, his UK hatred is palpable. But he’s also the reason I stopped watching the show. I’m embarrassed for him. And you can see it on Herbstreit’s face most of the time, thinking “Just smile and get through this episode.”

      His days on the show are thankfully numbered. He needs to retire. If you watch that show for Corso, then you probably watch a LOT of bad tv, and need to get some fresh air yourself.

    Lee can barely pick his nose these days, plus he has UofL ties.

    That cadaverous old geezer has been wearing diapers since 2006

    GoCatz its not about picking our team. It’s the fact that he makes that show annoying and isn’t really relevant to today’s game.
