ESPN’s College GameDay means different things to different people. If you’re a student when the show travels to your school, it involves doing some arts and crafts the night before and then waking up at an ungodly hour, filling up a flask, and hoping someone on the internet will take a screenshot of your sign. If you’re a normal person, it’s an excuse to start drinking earlier than you probably should, and if you’re Lee Corso, it involves having any analysis you might give overshadowed by whatever comically large mascot head you decide to don when picking a favorite team.

Corso has been a part of College GameDay since its inception over 30 years ago, and he’s shown a penchant for oversized headgear during his time behind the desk. I’m not sure if “Most Mascot Heads Worn” is recognized by Guinness, but if the guy who set the record for the world’s longest fart got an award, I don’t see why Corso can’t.

Given his experience, I think it’s safe to say Corso is an authority when it comes to mascots. In a conversation with AL.com’s Mark Heim, he was asked about his least favorite head to put on and revealed there was one that gives him more trouble than any of the others.

“I hate the Florida Gators anyhow, being a Florida State man. I hate to put the Florida Gator head on. The Florida Gator head is long and funny looking. It scrapes my nose. Every time I put that thing on I get scraped and blood comes down my face.”

Given their record last season, he might not have to worry about that for a little while.

Frequently described as "freakishly tall," he once used his 6'10" frame to sneak in the NBA Draft before walking around the streets of NYC masquerading as the newest member of the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to land him a contract, so he was forced to settle for writing on the internet for a living instead. If you're mad about something he wrote, be sure that any angry tweets you send note the similarity between his last name and a popular insult, as no one has ever done that before.
