How about Tom Lehman sp? pro golfer from Alexandria I believe who I think went to the U but must admit I am not sure about that, back when Mason was the coach he was always promoting the program in public whenever he could and being a Masters champion, and I believe he won a few other major championships, he had a pretty big microphone back then. Anyway, I think he could be a very respected and well known top tier athlete many could appreciate for this appearance.
Nitpic: Lehman did not win the Masters. He won the Open Championship in 96. UofM grad, though.

Brock Lesnar. It's a no brainer. Imposing figure that is known by people young and old. National champ.

Swardson would be funny but there is too high of a probability he shows up messed up and embarrasses everyone involved.

Plus, Lesnar is a born entertainer. He would not be dull, that's for sure. He won a national championship for Minnesota.

He'd be my vote. Not sure if he's available or willing, but hope so!

Sid and Lee on the same set would certainly be something.
Oh my.

I can't tell if Corso thinks as fast as he used to be able to talk, and his mouth just can't move that fast any more, or if it is really a slowing of his mind. It is unfortunate to see play out live, if you've seen how he used to be.

Gotta think Pop Culture. Brock Lesnar.

Wonder how many celebrities reach out to ESPN to get the publicity.

WWE Schedule-wise it looks like it would work for Brock. They had their monthly payperview last night and his only likely appearance this week would by in Chicago tonight.

He retained the title last night, so he could bring the belt to the set.

This-all logic says it must be so!

John Legend is a sneaky second option-

Sometime they will announce it on good morning america that Saturday morning of gameday. Other it announce ahead. I remeber one time this year they announce Lara Spencer as the guest picker on GMA. That was when they were in Happy Valley for Penn State.

Corso had a bad stroke 10 years ago. He had to re-learn to speak. Nowadays he memorizes a script because it is hard to ad-lib and quickly turn thoughts in to words.

It’ll be interesting to see who it is.

The pick segment is sponsored by a private jet company, who provide the flights, so I don’t think his schedule would really matter.

Those that like to tweet should be tweeting Lesnar and the GameDay account if you want it to happen.

Read some article about this. Kirk has been key to help Corso, in the past, frequently speaking up to cover for Corso when Lee drops his thought or had problems getting his words out. I think Corso is far better now than a couple years ago.
