In case you were wondering (or perhaps worried), Lee Corso is loving life and ready to once again play the roll of clown on ESPN's "GameDay."
And the 71-year-old Corso has much to say.
"Southern Cal could be No. 1 — and No. 2," he told Brian Schmitz of the Orlando Sentinel.
What about defending national champion Florida? "They can't be as good as they were last season without Chris Leak. He beat FSU, Tennessee and Georgia. Hello! Tim Tebow [Leak's quarterback successor] has a ways to go. They'll miss Leak.
"Gators need to look out for South Carolina. I hear they have a pretty good coach [ex-Gator Steve Spurrier]."
"They have a shot at the title — the ACC title. Not the national title; there are too many good teams."
And about that new coach at Miami ...
"Randy Shannon [first-year coach] was a questionable hire. Not that he isn't a real good coach ... but Miami is Miami. I don't know if they're going to give a guy the chance for on-the-job-training.
"Are they going to blame the coach right away?"
