Week 8 Cobs: Drinking a Cold One, Flattening a Kicker and Losing in the Ninth Overtime

We’ve got a mixed bag of sweet and salty cob nominations this week...just in time for Halloween.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

It’s that time of the week again! Grab a cold one and enjoy this week’s cob nominations.


Not related to something that happened on the football field and actually a bit sad but still cob worthy.

Colorado State

What a disastrous ending for the Rams here. Why didn’t you just spike the ball?

Central Michigan

This is a horrific way for the Chippewas to end the game.

A better angle.

Penn State

Losing to Illinois when you’re a ranked team automatically gets you a cob even if it took nine overtimes (the new overtime rules suck).

Connecticut defensive lineman Travis Jones

I can’t even imagine the coach’s reaction to this. Just runs him over.

Oklahoma offensive lineman Marquis Hayes

What an incredibly boneheaded decision.

Big 12 Refs

What a terrible call. Thankfully it didn’t end up costing Iowa State a win.

Ivy League Refs

You know you screwed up big time when you have to put out a statement like this one.

We have an tasty selection of cob nominations for Week 8 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.

Legal or not...crazy play here.

Another week. Another 80+ yard punt from San Diego State’s Matt Araiza.

Nice fake punt from the Wolfpack.

Mike Leach gives his takes on candy. I have to disagree with him about candy corn.
