Corso-Samantha Ponder

Bill Murray lays the Smackdown on Lee Corso

In the two decades of College GameDay, we may have not seen a funnier moment than this. First, it was a coup for the show to get the ever-so-elusive Bill Murray to appear on the Selection Saturday segment with Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit. He's apparently filming a movie near the Clemson campus where GameDay visited today. Second, Lee Corso dressing in Florida State Seminole garb had to be seen to be believed. And third, all hell broke loose when Murray decided to body slam Corso and pull some wrestling moves to counter his selection of Florida State for tonight's FSU-Clemson game.

Murray gave history lessons and roundabout reasoning for his selections. Corso came back with "Not so fast, Caddyshack" and "Not so fast, Ghostbusters" in response. Murray should be on GameDay every week. 

Through it all, it led to one of the crazier moments of this year or any other year, Bill Murray picking up Lee Corso then doing knee drops with the old "stomp on the opponent as you pretend to help him up" trick. Plus he threw the Seminole spear that Corso was planning to stick into the Clemson logo. There was pandemonium on the set. Watch.

Check out the look on Samantha Ponder as Corso walked by.

Ponder tweeted that the whole thing was spontaneous. 

Just another typical College GameDay on ESPN. Who knows what will happen next week?
