The Florida State Seminoles opened their college football season with a metaphoric punch to the mouth.

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.

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.

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.
