Lee Corso is the most-beloved college football analyst of all-time and he's been a mainstay on ESPN's College GameDay. Corso's "headgear" segment is arguably the most-talked about segment on in pregame sports show history.

At some point, Corso will be stepping away from the pregame show. Hopefully, the analyst can stay on for several more years, but eventually, the 84-year-old analyst will need to be replaced.

Some college football fans believe they have found the man who should succeed him.

Pat McAfee, a first-year college football analyst for ESPN, has transitioned well into the sports media game following a career as an NFL punter. McAfee was ESPN's guest picker for College GameDay in South Dakota today. Fans were impressed by his performance.

"Here’s a thought: Pat McAfee should be Lee Corso’s successor. He’s perfect for Game Day and college football," Josh Graham tweeted.

College football fans seem to agree.

McAfee certainly seemed to have some good chemistry with Kirk Herbstreit and the rest of the College GameDay panel.

What do you think, college football fans - should McAfee replace Lee Corso on ESPN's College GameDay when the time comes?
