And now tell us how you feel about Kirk Herbstreit: Todd from Georgia Southern University garners nationwide fame by holding up a simple sign in the background of ESPN's "College Game Day" last weekend -- "Lee Corso Is A Penis".

These guys are in show business...what they say is no more right than what you say, and what you say may mean more, if you follow your team each day.....What I want to know is why Steve Petersen is still the A.D. at the University of Nebraska....what he has done is disgraceful, and the longer he is there, the more disgraceful is the University of Nebraska ! What do you think ?

That sign rocks. God Corso sucks. I would love to think of another fitting body part to call Herbstreit. Elbow maybe???????

what they say is no more right than what you say, and what you say may mean more, if you follow your team each day huh? What I want to know is why Steve Petersen is still the A.D. at the University of Nebraska.... How does this have anything to do with Lee Corso being a penis?

The relative pudenditude of Mister Corso aside, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. With the layout of the show and the rowdy background stuff being encouraged, they seem to be inviting this kind of thing.

I have ignored Lee Corso every since his thrice weekly proclamations that Gino Toretta was more worthy to win the Heisman than Marshall Faulk. Herbstreit on the other hand has good insights and is always prepared no matter how obscure the team he's covering.

pudenditude The word rocks. On a minor point, in this case 'phallitude' may be more appropriate.

Herbstreit is always prepared but since it insists on dumping all over my Wolverines I'd like him to take a long walk off a short pier.

what they say is no more right than what you say, and what you say may mean more, if you follow your team each day exactly. Todd does seem to take Corso way too seriously but if he didn't we wouldn't have this awesome sports culture moment! Now if only I could figure out how to make that photo in the story my wallpaper...

I think you are taking these people much to serious, just like what was said before these people are in show business so they need to say and do things to keep there rating up. I am a West Virginia U. fan and have been all of my life, so I know what it is like to have your team put down all of the time. But they have a right to say what ever.

Don't forget Lee's other wonderful moment. Herbstreit went to OSU, didn't he? Can't imagine why he dumps on Michigan.

If Corso is, indeed, a penis, perhaps there is a link to PETERsen being the Nebraska ad.

I hadn't heard about that wheels-off moment with Corso on The Ticket in Dallas. I guess he's a fully clothed penis.

Is Corso a BIG penis or a lil one? After all, Size matters doesn't it?

This happens from time to the time a guy was holding up a sign that said "I wanna Bohn Linda Cohn"...can't comment on the guy's taste in women, but it was funny to see on CGD nonetheless...

Corso doesn't really bother me. He's a clown. I find him so easy to ignore and dismiss, that I haven't given him the chance to irritate me. Herbstreit, on the other hand, is a pretty damn good analyst.

None of which will ever top the Wade Boggs + cross-country flight + 64 beers sign.

posted by yerfatma at 11:42 AM on November 09

WOW - yerfatma....I had forgotten that one!!!!! Awesome reference!!!!!

posted by sinisterfoot at 01:44 PM on November 09

Where was that one?

posted by tron7 at 01:57 PM on November 09

This page links to PTI interview with Boggs regarding the 64 bottles of beer on the plane, along with some other stuff Boggs-a-holics will appreciate.

I find the trio rather entertaining! Herbstreit is alway prepared and very forthright in comments. Lee Corso is a funny, funny man. Not the greatest of coaches. But does entertain me.

I know he went to OSU. Therefore long walk off short pier.

In Ohio?
