The Gamecocks Are Not Big Fans Of Lee Corso

Friday, September 14, 2007

Last Saturday on Gameday the team aired a video of Steve Spurrier calling out Lee Corso for stating that the Ball Coach would never win an SEC title if he coached there for 400 years. The video (below) was kind of cheesy and seemed more like a fund-raising tool, but you could tell Corso was a bit ticked off. He didn't even smile after Herbstreit gave him his pateneted pat on the back.

Well USC has upped the ante. They've created a website that features the video and a game where you can throw footballs at Corso's head, and the Gameday Crew isn't too happy about it.

“I don’t speak for what that would mean for the likelihood of ‘GameDay’ coming there [USC]. But I can tell you it doesn’t increase the chances,” Fowler said. “If South Carolina continues to win games, it will always be on the radar for game shows. But it would be a consideration, to go somewhere the show has been targeted.”
Don't you think they might be getting bent out of shape over nothing? If Desmond Howard can go on location to Columbus I think Corso can suck it up and head to USC if they contend for the SEC Championship this year (which they won't).

Jabs at Corso might scare off ESPN (The State)

Corso and OBC should just settle their differences over a DiGiorno.

I'm not a big fan of Corso's, either; He's nothing but a doddering old fool who shouldn't even be allowed near a tv set.

it's a dieing TV show trying to attract ratings because people would rather be tailgating then watching TV.
it's a publicity stunt -- nothing more.

Chris Fowler lifts mega weights. I wouldn't mess with him, sweetheart.

So let me see if I have this straight. That wanker Corso can go on TV every week and say whatever ridiculous crap comes to mind about whomever he wishes. However, no one who has been criticized dare push back or ESPN won't grace their campus with their presence.

Double standard, much?

If Lee is going to dish it out he should be able to take it as well. This is pretty mild after all.

Yeah I'm with the last Anon on this one. A s**t ton of people watch Gameday and it's by far the best program on the Network. Perhaps the only one left after Baseball Tonight has gone down the crapper.
