Corso wasn't so bad last year, but this year he's been positively awful. It's sad when people get old and confused and Alzheimerish. I think it's especially depressing how they keep putting Dick Clark on TV on New Year's Eve after his stroke. It bums me out so much that I change the channel.
For Gameday next year they should just have Corso come out at the end with a mascot uniform on. Honestly I don't want to hear him try to give football analysis anymore.
Totally agree, I mean he's pretty much a mascot for Gameday anyway.
Seriously though it is sad, I know exactly what that looks like, I watched my dad's alertness slowly disappear. Some days he was sharp as a whip others it was like he was he just checked out, and he was always worse at night. I know overall Corso has been off as far as analysis, but tonight it kinda looked like his blood sugar was really low with the slurring speech and glossed over eyes. My dad got like that a lot, I'd put a couple spoonfuls of sugar in a class of Pepsi and he'd snap out of it pretty quick though.

It's too bad McCoy got hurt. I'm 75% sure Alabama would have still won, but it's harder to say that now.
I don't remember hearing that he had a stroke. That would explain a lot. I still haven't seen him look as off as he is tonight. Regardless of what is causing him to look "checked out" he needs to hang it up. I just feel bad watching him, and I know Desmond Howard is probably just uncomfortable and doesn't know how to react to him, but watching Desmond laugh every time Corso stumbles over his words bothers me too.
