No. 11 Ole Miss opened a 21-3 lead on the road against No. 4 FSU.
And just as the Seminoles were about to start scratching their way back into things, the inexplicable and unthinkable happened: running back Dalvin Cook, who had a clear path to the end zone after a completion from Deondre Francois, fumbled the ball away untouched at the 2-yard line, rolling backward a yard.
Despite the still great field position, his team had to settle for a field goal.
As with any embarrassing lowlight, the internet's thoughts were many.
You know who was smart enough to run all the way through the end zone, Dalvin Cook? pic.twitter.com/bzgu9TaIdT

This is exactly why I use a sack to carry all of my gifts. https://t.co/1K6bf8zotH

Dalvin Cook just did exactly what I would do if I was about to score a touchdown in a football game. That's not a good thing.

But the best reaction came from Baltimore Ravens wideout Kaelin Clay, who had his own infamous fumble back in his days at the University of Utah.
THAT MIGHT'VE BEEN WORSE THAN ME!!!

No, it wasn't, Kaelin. Not even a little bit close.
Thankfully for Cook, his Seminoles stormed back. After trailing 28-6 in the closing minute of the first half, they rattled off 39 the rest of the game to win 45-34. Cook, a Heisman hopeful, rushed for 91 yards on 23 carries and caught seven passes for 101 yards.
