I think Dennis and Seth are absolutely right about the connection of
COBBED with "CORNHOLE". However, it is the case that COBBED and REAMED
are a little different in semantic range from SCREWED--COBBED and REAMED
can (for me) mean simply 'defeated badly': Duke was recently
REAMED/COBBED (cf. CREAMED) by EMU at basketball, but they were not SCREWED.
I've always presumed creamed was short for cremated.
