ESPN "College GameDay" analyst Lee Corso recently suffered a minor stroke, but plans on being back for the kickoff of the 2009 college football season.

Corso suffered no permanent damage in the minor stroke, which was caused by the blockage to a small artery, according to a statement from Corso. He is expected to make a full recovery.

"This is just a small bump in the road," Corso said in a statement issued by ESPN. "A 'not so fast, my friend' in my game of life. I look forward to making a full recovery and returning to ESPN for my 23rd season analyzing the greatest sport in the world -- college football."

Corso, who played collegiately at Florida State, is a former head coach at Louisville, Indiana and Northern Illinois. He also coached the Orlando Renegades of the USFL.

He joined ESPN in 1987.
