Lee Corso, a beloved ESPN analyst on College GameDay, has been dealing with health problems this season. Corso, 87, had a health scare at the beginning of October.
Corso made his anticipated return to the ESPN College GameDay desk earlier this month. The network provided another update on Corso’s health ahead of the trip to Jackson State Tigers football trip.
In a statement posted onto ESPN’s PR account on Twitter, the company said the following, “Lee Corso will not travel to Jackson State for College GameDay this week due to a health issue. Coach Corso is in good spirits, and he hopes to be back on the road with the crew soon.”
Lee Corso not being on GameDay is sad news. It’s especially sad that he’ll be missing the trip to Jackson State to see the Tigers football program up close.
Jackson State is led by former NFL star Deion Sanders, the unbeaten Tigers are taking the SWAC by storm this year. Sanders and Corso would have made for must-see TV!
The primary is Lee Corso’s health. It was reported earlier this month that he had tests conducted to be cautious about his health.
