Week 9 Cobs: Schooner Curse, Spitting and Flopping

The dumbest things that happened this past weekend.

It’s going to be hard to top last week’s cob selection but we still have some interesting choices. Let’s check out this week’s cob nominations.


Someone in last week’s cobs mentioned something about the omen of the Schooner crash. I think it’s real after the Kansas State upset. Skylar Thompson was a nightmare for the Sooners as they went down by 25 points in the 4th before scoring the last 18 points so the 48-41 loss wasn’t as close as it seemed.


Horns down! Texas is definitely not back when your quarterback throws four picks in a 37-27 loss.

Notre Dame

The Irish luck has run out for this season. They got stomped by Jim Harbaugh’s Michigan 45-14.

Penn State Defensive Tackle Antonio Shelton

On this week’s version of stupid ways to get yourself ejected: spitting.

Apology accepted?

Texas Tech Defensive Back Douglas Coleman III

Tried to get cute on a blocked field goal and it ended up costing Texas Tech the game.

Auburn Defensive End Big Kat Bryant

I was going to nominate Indiana’s defense for going down easy this week. And then I saw this. Caught in the act...

There were some pretty good cob nominations in Week 9 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.
