Lee Corso Apology: College Gameday's Analyst Dropping F-Bomb Is Not a Big Deal

College football is a game of passion.

The fans are passionate, the players are passionate, the coaches are passionate and even the media is passionate.

Today we all saw that first hand on ESPN's College Gameday, when Lee Corso dropped the F-Bomb on national television.

During the final segment, Corso picked up the SMU megaphone giving hints of an upset.

He then tossed it aside and put on the Houston Cougar mascot head. In the process, he let out a little emotion by saying, "Ah, ---- it".

It's not the first time something like this has slipped out over the air, and it certainly won't be the last.

The incident got a good laugh from co-hosts Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Folwer. Herbstreit's face is priceless when he realizes what was said. Folwer just puts his head down to the table.

"Glad there's a delay," Herbstreit said.

"Shasta, shame on you. Wash that mouth," Fowler commented.

Nobody was actually offended. In fact, most find it hysterical.

How many times have you said an expletive in your life? It happens.

Corso is a passionate guy. He got a little fired up and carried away with his pick and the words just slipped out. It's not a big deal.

Being the politically correct society we are, Corso did issue an apology during a break in the Nebraska game against Michigan.

At the end of the day, who really cares? We are all human and we all make mistakes. Corso just made his in front of a huge audience.

A little slap on the wrist and this should all be forgotten.
