ESPN analyst Corso recovering from minor stroke

BRISTOL, Conn. -- ESPN college football analyst Lee Corso is recovering from a minor stroke but plans to be back for the start of the season this fall.
ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz said Thursday that the stroke was caused by blockage to a small artery, but the 73-year-old former coach suffered no permanent damage and is expected to make a full recovery.
Corso issued a statement in which he called the stroke a "small bump in the road" and a "not so fast, my friend, in my game of life" -- a play on one of his more well-known quips.
The former Florida State player joined ESPN in 1987 after coaching stops at Louisville, Indiana, Northern Illinois and with the Orlando Renegades of the USFL. He's been a featured analyst on College GameDay since its inception.
