Huskers, Wazzu, Clempson, and Auburn get pantsed
I’ve tried to avoid nominating the Huskers for the weekly Cob, but because of a lack of suitable nominations not involving the Huskers, and the no-good, horrible, terrible, really bad OSU game on Saturday, they are ...
Nominee 1: Nebraska.
Rehashing this seems pointless and painful, so I’ll just leave it there. Y’all are gonna vote for them anyway.
Nominee 2: Auburn.
The Tigers blew a 20 point lead before losing 27-23 to Coach O’s LSU Tigers. To make it even better, the Auburn mascot dressed up like Troy Trojan to troll LSU. Maybe topping that was that it was the largest comeback against a SEC opponent in Tiger Stadium since 1949!
Nominee 3: Clempson.
The Tigers’ (seems like I’m typing that a lot today) cakewalk into the CFP got a lot more complicated Saturday as Syracuse held #2 Clempson scoreless in the 4th quarter and broke a 24-24 tie with a game winning field goal with 9:41 left in the game. ESPN’s win probability graph chronicles the Tigers’ descent.
Nominee 4: Washington State
The Cougars lost to Cal, 37-3. Washington state was #6 in the nation. It is only the second Top 10 victory in 40 years for Cal. The Cougars committed SEVEN turnovers, gave up nine sacks, and had a one yard punt!
Said Mike Leach about his quarterback Luke Falk:
“That’s the worst game that everybody’s played under me. It’s not like Luke played bad and everybody played great,” Mike Leach said, sticking up for his quarterback. “Luke didn’t sack himself nine times. Luke didn’t give up the number of points as far as marching up and down field. We didn’t play good anywhere – Luke didn’t punt one yard.”
Oh yeah, their AD bailed on Leach too.
