Lee Corso Can No Longer Wear Florida State Mascot Costume, Because Of Bill Murray
Remember when Bill Murray body-slammed Lee Corso on the College Gameday set at Clemson in 2013? It was just before the Clemson-Florida State Game, and Corso was dressed in the Chief Osceola costume, him being an 1857 graduate of FSU and all. Wait, check that. 1957?
Murray, representing Clemson, suddenly attacked and during the melee, stole Corso's spear. Murray chucked the spear into the crowd, and therein lies the problem.
Subsequently, we now have the Bill Murray Rule at FSU:

According to Corso, Florida State will no longer allow its 1957 graduate to don the Chief Osceola costume because trusting that spear to outsiders (or at least one who couldn’t hold tightly onto that weapon, even when confronted by comedian attack) is just a bit too risky, in light of Murray’s actions.
Corso is also not allowed to wear the head of Auburn's mascot, Aubie the Tiger. That's due to a strict Auburn policy that no one but the person depicting Aubie can wear it.
I'm not a huge fan of Corso's old-man schtick anyway: I don't care for prop comics, especially when they're 78.
Love Bill Murray, however.
