Lee Corso's pick for Saturday night's Miami-Florida State game was quite intriguing. He was born in Miami but went to school at Florida State.
Which side is he going with and how will he announce his pick to the world?
Instead of going with the usual head gear or firing off a loud gun, the always entertaining Corso decided to take viewers back by revealing his 1954 Florida State jersey. He had it under his suit the entire time! Like Superman coming out of the phone booth, the 78-year-old college football icon removed his attire and rocked the old-school uniform that he represented so well many years ago.
If he lost some of the baby fat, Corso looks like he could still help out the Seminoles on the gridiron right now.
I just wonder how long it took to get that bad boy cleaned at the dry cleaners. Hanging up in the closet for several decades, it had to have gathered enough dust to design a sofa cushion.
Anyway, for all you young people out there, Corso was a talented football player for the Seminoles before he became a popular television personality. He played both quarterback and cornerback in the 1950s and actually set a school record with 14 career interceptions, a record that was later broken by Monk Bonasorte.
Corso also played baseball while in college and later became a graduate assistant for the school in 1958 once he graduated.
This was a nice blast from the past to begin what should be a wonderful week of college football.
