I don’t think I want to know the answer to this question. Time to bleach my eyes.

Let’s jump into this week’s Cobs.

In case you missed the ending of BYU-Coastal Carolina.

Here are some refs getting drilled with the football.

And some deflected passes which led to catches in the end zone.

And one crazy
