Lee Corso emotional after watching ESPN montage honoring 20 years of headgear predictions

It's become tradition.

Every Saturday during the fall at 11:59 a.m., Lee Corso puts on the mascot head of the team he thinks will win the week's biggest game featured on ESPN's College Gameday.

Corso, 81, has done it for 20 years, even after suffering from a stroke in 2009.

Saturday, ESPN honored Corso and the 20th anniversary of the first time he put on headgear on during live television.

The montage featured several college coaches, including Miami head coach Mark Richt who joked by saying he "cringes" when Corso puts on his team's mascot head "because he's most of the time wrong."

After the montage, Corso became emotional. He thanked ESPN for keeping him on the show after his health issues.
