Watch: Bill Walton's 'College GameDay' appearance was hilariously perfect

  Watch: Bill Walton's 'College GameDay' appearance was hilariously perfect Walton injected his peculiarities into basically the entire segment. That included him interrupting the picks for Oklahoma State-Iowa State to ask what a “poke” was. pic.twitter.com/a9YveNASO0 — no context college football (@nocontextcfb) October 23, 2021 The topper came at the end, however. Walton predictably picked UCLA to beat Oregon. So too did Lee Corso, spurning the Oregon mascot and putting on a bear head. That earned him a kiss from Walton. oh noooo pic.twitter.com/4YpiOl9xnr — Timothy Burke (@bubbaprog) October 23, 2021 Just a masterpiece of television.
