Week Five Cobs

It’s been that kind of a week. Sometimes, even the weekly celebration of Schadenfreude we here at Corn Nation revel in doesn’t lift our spirits.

Still, life goes on, and just to prove it does we feature the Hawkeyes and three SEC teams. Yes folks, a hat trick of S-E-C hate for Husker fans.

Nominee #1: Iowa QB Nate Stanley’s Fumberception. Trailing Sparty 17-7 in the third quarter, Iowa drove 64 yards in 12 plays and appeared ready to really make MSU sweat. Then this happened.

Nominees #2, 3, and 4 all get rolled together, because, well, they all got rolled.

Nominee #2 - LSU lost ON HOMECOMING to Troy. Not only did the Trojans slap the Tigers around for 3.5 quarters, they were rewarded with $985,000 for their efforts. That’s the kind of deal the late lamented Monty Hall would love.

Nominee #3 - Tennesse was shut out AT HOME by Georgia 41-0. I know, Georgia is actually pretty good, but still. The highlight of the game, at least for those of us doomed to watch this debacle was a brawl between Vols fans in the stands.

Nominee #4 - Ole Miss went to Tuscaloosa and the final result was much worse than anyone anticipated. Alabama’s really good, but still...sheesh. 66-3. That’s a beat down.

In related news, San Diego? Chargers fans want ‘Bama.
