Earlier today on ESPN's College Gameday, Lee Corso got a bit excited during his big pick and dropped the f-bomb for the world to hear.

During the final segment, Corso picked up the SMU megaphone giving hints of an upset. He then tossed it aside while saying "Ah, ---- it," and put on the Houston Cougar head.

The incident immediately caught Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler off guard. The two laughed and applauded in disbelief.

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

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

Obviously there was immediate backlash. It didn't take long for Corso to air a public apology for what was said.

During a break in Nebraska's game against Michigan, Corso read a statement and apologized for his actions.

"Earlier today on College Game Day, I used an expletive I shouldn't have. I apologize and promise it won't happen again," he read.

Corso has been doing this for a long time. It's hard to believe that he meant any harm by what was said.

We are all big sports fans. We all get caught up in the heat of the moment. We all say words looked down upon by society on occasion.

It just so happens that Corso made the mistake on National television.

With the apology, this needs to be dropped and forgotten. No real action needs to be taken. Corso made a mistake and is likely embarrassed as it is. That should be punishment enough.
