The long tradition of university football players wearing immediately identifiable clothes, or driving cars with immediately identifiable parking permits, during the course of their robberies is burnished once again in the case of the University of Oklahoma’s Parrish Cobb.

Here’s UD‘s favorite headline:

Oklahoma cornerback Parrish Cobb, burned for 2 Noah Brown TDs, charged in 3 robberies

You wanna get the important stuff out there first, and only after that get around to his off-field activities…

Some nice comments at Deadspin:

(spring practice)

Stoops: Is there any video?

Cobb: I don’t think so.

Stoops: Well take an extra lap. Wait, we’re in a new era. Make it two.

    Perhaps time off the sentence for cooperation with police before the fact.

    “Blonde CarJacked In Broad Daylight!”
    “Botoxed Brunette Busted!”

    You’re right, gotta get the facts out there….

    Greg: Nice idea. Sort of retroactive clemency…

    This comment on deadspin was even better:

    Baylor narrowly dodged a bullet with this guy.


    He wasn’t a good fit in their system anyways. That’s what the recruiting services miss in their rankings. Sure a guy may have considerable skills, but is he a good fit? It’s not as easy as you think putting an armed robbery kid into a rape system.

    John: How in hell did I miss that one? Spectacular.
