Before we move onto this weekend's Big Eight Championship game, we still have one final task from last weekend, and that's the awarding of the Cob of the Week for the worst of this past weekend's college football. And though Jon wants us to ignore that commissioner guy, he already had been nominated. So he's in the mix, along with several other candidates. So if you want to prove that Husker fans are so over the doofus in Dallas, here's your chance.
Alabama: Blowing a 24-point lead against your rival, especially considering you have two of the best backs in the country to help milk the clock.
Or if you want to make a statement, go that direction as well.
Boise State: Pperhaps the saddest cob of all time. Kicker Kyle Brotzman missed a chip-shot field goal at the end of regulation to send the game to overtime, then misses another in overtime to effectively seal the win for Nevada. If you're one of those guys who focuses on the end, on the clutch, Brotzman wasn't. If you're one of those guys who remembers football is a team game you'd say - where the hell was his team in overtime? They knew the guy just missed an easy field goal - if they wanted to save themselves, they'd have scored a touchdown in overtime and made it tough on Nevada. Kyle Brotzman - sad cob for you.
Ok, ok. So maybe Big Boy could be instantly recognized. But how about somebody else? Maybe, oh, Ed Stewart?
Maybe we're being petty about that. Saturday, he told the Lincoln Journal-Star that he thought Texas A&M's Tony Jerod-Eddie was simply going after the football and nothing more. And since Ben Cotton said the same thing, why should he think anything different? Oy!
