Once again, it's time to honor the worst of the week in college football with the Cob. The good news is that Nebraska is blissfully ineligible this week; the bad news is that, well, there wasn't a lot of Cob-worthy suckage out there. I mean, we probably could have nominated CBS News for using the Iowa State logo for the Hawkeyes, but morning news programs typically don't cover much football. Besides, until this season, nobody outside the state of Iowa really cared about either of them.
But we do have a few candidates to honor this weekend:
Facing third and three from the Florida State 7 yard line, the Tigers decided to spike the ball WITH 33 SECONDS left before halftime. Wanted to save all the time (and their timeout) to make sure they got the field goal...so they'd only be trailing 10-6 at halftime. I mean, being tied is for the birds.
Well, that flirtation with the College Football Playoff was brief with a 49-29 loss to Okie State. The bed is messy, but maybe the Big 12 goes through Stillwater this year.

Asking us to kick the Arkansas QB out of the stadium is not a legit reason to dial 911. #ARKvsMISS— Oxford Police Dept (@OxfordPolice) November 7, 2015
Our Brian Towle predicted that Purdue would go the "superhero one week, fartnoise the next." Well, losing 48-14 to Illinois at home was a particularly moist fart that surely soaked all the way through two layers of clothing.
