Lee Corso is certainly not lacking for odd moments in his many years as one of the College GameDay hosts. But what he did today at the 2019 NFL Draft might take the cake.
Apparently it’s past Corso’s bedtime because following the 11th pick in the draft, Corso just up and left the set. No reason given, just a simple handshake to his broadcast partners and an “I’ve gotta go” before packing up his stuff and leaving the set.
“See you in the Fall,” he told Rece Davis, Desmond Howard, and Kirk Herbstreit before leaving.
ESPN and ABC likely thought that having the cast of GameDay as a part of their NFL Draft coverage would share the magic of the college-version of the program. But that really wasn’t the case.

Outside of bringing out a Dwayne Haskins headgear to predict him as the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Corso didn’t make headgear selections for any of the other picks.
The No. 1 overall selection ended up being Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray to the Arizona Cardinals.
Haskins wound up getting drafted by the Washington Redskins at No. 15 overall after he left.
It will be nice to see Corso again in the Fall, and hopefully it stays that way for a long time.
