We have a boatload of crazy cobs this week

Another week of college football has come and gone. Let’s waddle our way into this week’s cob nominations.

Fresno State

Losing to UConn gets you an automatic cob. Look how excited the Husky fans are about the win.


Georgia Tech just fired their head coach and the Pitt Panthers just lost to them on their home field. Ouch.


The Badgers were not having a good day. This is when things started to unravel in their blowout to former coach Bret Bielema in the Fighting Illini’s first win at Camp Randall since 2002.


Is the Nebraska curse real? Oklahoma just got blown out by Max Duggan and the Horned Frogs. Are the Sooners out of the Big 12 title picture already?

Alabama Special Teams

Massive screw up for the Crimson Tide. Thankfully it didn’t cost them a win against the Hogs.

BYU Nickelback Jacob Boren

BYU living up to their ‘honor code’ of unleashing dirty hits at the knees.

Iowa State Kicker Jace Gilbert

The Cyclone kicker had a rough day in Lawrence. First hitting the goal post twice in two attempts.

And them capping off the afternoon with this shanked kick in the 4th quarter to cost his team the game.

Ohio State Punter Jesse Mirco

Run a fake punt when your team is up 39 points and you deserve to get drilled.

Ole Miss Fans

It looks like the Ole Miss student section responded well to Lane Kiffin’s comments about leaving the game early. The Rebels also won this game so I’m not sure what they’re fighting about.

We have a crazy selection of cob nominations for Week 5 of College Football but unfortunately you can only pick one.

Mike Leach with some wisdom.

Poor tree

The strut when you go 5-for-5 on field goals for the day. Big redemption after last week’s debacle.

Well that’s one way to get a two-point conversion.

This onside kick was somehow recovered.

A much more graceful onside kick.

Big guy touchdown alert.

Some big cheek action in the Big Sky
