As noted at various US news sites that day, Lee Corso was caught dropping the unscripted phrase while doing the preview for the match between the Southern Methodist University (SMU) and University of Houston.

Corso, 76, who has been working for ESPN for two decades, was with fellow commentators Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit, along with former Olympic athlete Carl Lewis when the incident happened.

“Ah..F*** it!” Corso said, after throwing the SMU megaphone he held earlier and then wore the head of Shasta, the mascot for University of Houston. The crowd went wild as his co-hosts burst with laughter.

“Shasta, shame on you! Wash that mouth out.” Fowler said, as Kirk Herbstreit, who was on Corso‘s left, threw his pen in the air and screwed up his face to closed his mouth.

During the Nebraska-Michigan match, which is about half an hour later, Lee Corso appeared at ESPN again and said he was sorry for what happened. It also was shown on ESPN2 and ESPNU.

“Earlier today on College GameDay while picking the SMU-Houston game, I got a bit excited and used an expletive that I shouldn’t have used. I apologize and can promise it won’t happen again” Corso said, while reading his letter of apology.
