ESPN's Lee Corso Won't Wear Aubie’s Head At Auburn GameDays
Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports
One of college football's fun traditions is when ESPN's Lee Corso makes his picks on College GameDay donning the head of a mascot. While on a panel at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta, Corso explained why he's never put on the head of Auburn's mascot Aubie...


Former Aubie from 1991-92, David Reynolds, explains...

One of our roommates was one of the Mikes in the 90's. We put on he head all the time playing around the apartment off Lee & Highland, would stand outside and wave at cars, wear it around the pool, even wore it into daiquiri pub once. I'm sure someone at sometime has put on the aubbie head.

Props barners! Don't dilute your traditions for the sake of publicity. Land grant solidarity.

Auburn is probably on of the least qualified schools for a "holier-that-thou" attitude.

Why should we do anything different to give Corso his jollies? Screw ESPN.

I have a couple of friends that were Mike the Tiger in college. They would occasionally go to Mascot camps to learn new tips/tricks/whatever. He said, they'd all sit around after morning meeting, then put on their mascot outfits in the same room. EXCEPT the auburn guys. they would go into a separate bathroom or something because they didn't want to ruin the mystique that Aubie isn't a person, it's an actual tiger.....to a room full of Mascots

Dear Dr Morgus scumbag...Aubie is the BEST looking character tiger mascot period. Short of Mike the Tiger, (which is awesome) Aubie is the best tiger period.

Big difference in not being allowed and he won't wear it. Larry once again wonderful reporting.

Surely he can just find another tiger mascot head and wear it. Auburn couldn't do a damned thing to stop him.

What part of "the head isn't separate from the rest of the suit" does Corso not get? Short of taking a pair of scissors and cutting the thing off, it can't happen.

It's not a costume. Aubie is real, he has a house. Sorry we don't want to murder a tiger and hollow out his head just for your ego, Lee Corso

This is nothing new. When Corso has picked us in the past, we've given him an Auburn helmet to wear. DWI
