Big 12 Cob of the Week - Very Late Edition

Thursday? We used to get these things out on Tuesday, when people were still thinking about last week's games. What's happening here? I'll tell you what it is. It's that guy who went through the name change. All cocky now, but can't manage a deadline worth a damn. 

You know, he told me once that in his 19 years of writing in the computer industry, he never once hit a deadline. Ever. So what do you expect here? 

Heading into the last week of the regular season, the Big 12 is settled. The games are being played for pride, for bragging rights, or for a better bowl game. Ooooooohhh, the Cobs will come out! 


Mike DeArmond who covers Missouri for the KC Star gets my cob nomination this week for his smarmy article to start the football season.He called anyone picking Nebraska to win the North as "abso-tooting-lutely nuts" Here is the money quote though-

The Cornhuskers have an inexperienced quarterback, lost just as much as Missouri on offense, don't have a running back of the caliber of MU's Derrick Washington. Shouting The Blackshirts Are Back! seems based more on the hope that Bo Pelini is a defensive genius rather than a first-year college head coach that was simply better than Bill Callahan.

He did post a preemptive defense, basically saying that he WAS right, MU and KU just sorta lost their way, NU does have a good defense but NU isn't really better than at least MU. So for his fine blogging work I nominate him for our Cob of the Week. May he find an appropriate place to stick it, in his office.

Husker Mike: 

Alex Cate, the Cowboys backup quarterback that spotted Colorado a 14-10 halftime lead by not being able to hit the broad side of a barn before being pulled for Brandon Weeden. Cate was 0-9 passing in the first half and if the Buffalo secondary was capable of catching footballs, Cate might have been 0-9-5 or something close. 

Jon J: 

Baylor goes into the Texas A&M game last week and lies down like a dog, 38-3. Quarterback Nick Florence goes 21-for-31 for 177 yards and two INTS. The Bears managed 297 total yards against the 100th-ranked Texas A&M defense formerly known as the "Wrecking Crew". This is the week after Baylor went into Columbia and scoring 40 in a win over the Tigers. Was Baylor wanting to end their season that quickly?
