Lee Corso's return to College GameDay for coldest show has fans concerned
Lee Corso is back on “College GameDay” Saturday after a multi-week absence for health reasons.
Saturday’s Week 12 show is originating from Bozeman, Montana.

Corso on “GameDay” is a welcome sight to college football fans everywhere. Some CFB fans, though, are questioning whether having Corso outside in 2-degree weather was the best decision by ESPN.
Here’s a small sample of what’s being said on Twitter:

I’m convinced College Gameday is just trying to kill Lee Corso.

Not sure it's a good idea to have elderly Lee Corso out in cold weather (temp 2 degrees) after he's been out sick for a few weeks? #CollegeGameDay

Why the hell is #CollegeGameDay subjecting poor Lee Corso to this kind of weather? Hello, police? I’d like to report an act of elder abuse…

While this is GameDay’s first trip to Montana, it’s certainly not the show’s first rodeo. Considering Corso’s situation, the elements were presumably considered when giving him the green light to return to the desk with Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, Pat McAfee and Kirk Herbstreit.
Corso addressed the situation with his trademark sense of humor. He joked that the GameDay crew goes wherever Disney says to go, even the single-digit temperatures of Bozeman, Montana.
Hopefully, Corso can stay warm. He can be back home in sunny Orlando before too long!
