Lee Corso health update: Rece Davis discusses status of popular GameDay host after Week 5 absence
Lee Corso missed last week’s episode of College GameDay when he felt under the weather in Clemson, South Carolina. It was a noticeable absence as Corso has been a fixture on the program since it began in 1987.
Corso remained in his hotel room at Clemson and eventually returned to his home in Orlando, Florida. At 87 years old, Corso could be winding down as a college football analyst. Fortunately, Corso just needed to take the show off to feel better.
ESPN College GameDay host Rece Davis appeared on the ‘’Paul Finebaum Show‘’ and discussed Corso’s status (Via On3):
“He’s doing much better. I talked to him on Sunday. He’s back home in Orlando and feeling much, much better,” said Davis. “He just woke up Saturday morning and had a little dizziness and so forth. They checked him out and he was feeling better by Saturday afternoon. (He) was really ready to go home quicker than they let him but the great doctors at Clemson took care of him, looked after him. Now he’s back home in Orlando.”
For Week 6’s show, College GameDay is set to travel to Lawrence, Kansas for the Kansas-TCU showdown. Whenever Corso returns to the show, he will receive well wishes and love from his co-hosts and the viewers.
