ESPN College GameDay and the wider college football world has been missing broadcast icon Lee Corso over the past few weeks as he's dealt with health issues. But his longtime friend Chris Fowler offered a significant update on his condition ahead of tomorrow's show.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Fowler announced that Corso is feeling well and will be a part of tomorrow's broadcast of College GameDay from Bozeman, Montana. 

"Awesome news! Look who's back?! Mr Corso reunites with the @CollegeGameDay gang tomorrow up in Bozeman, Montana. Hope LC packed his warmest coat! Seeing him on my TV tomorrow will warm my heart," Fowler wrote.

Fans have taken to the replies to express how delighted they are to see Coach Corso back in the seat. Everyone agrees that the show is better with him and his iconic headgear selections:

"Yeah Coach is back. We’ve missed him so much," one user replied.

"This is great news, Chris!" wrote another.

"Surprise Corso sighting in Bozeman! Glad he’s back. And braving the cold right off an illness! That’s dedication. Now it’s going to be the true GameDay experience. Let’s go!" wrote Montana Grizzlies beat writer Lucas Semb.

Corso has missed numerous shows this year due to health issues and there is increasing speculation that this could be his final year on the broadcast. Everyone at ESPN surely wants to savor as much time with the legend as they can.
