Conor and Ashley later make a plan to help Mr. Spanks gain his confidence back in return for canceling all of the detention he dished out. Meanwhile, Wendell is jealous that Franklin will be the school mascot. Franklin later performs a long cheer for Janice, but Wendell comes and crashes it with a better cheer and Janice makes him the mascot. However, Wendell ends up in a dirty costume when Franklin reveals that the awesome costume he was in was made by him and his mother. Meanwhile, while Conor and Ashley are helping Mr. Spanks, he continues to come up with lame excuses as to why he can't participate in the game, such as not being able to kick the football properly, but Ashley trash talks him and he gains his confidence back. Later at the game, Janice reveals she let Wendell be the mascot so he would get booed. Mr. Spanks is then put into the game, but double-crosses Conor when he refuses to cancel the detentions he dished out. Unfortunately for Mr. Spanks, he is tackled by everyone on the field, causing Mr. Spanks to break his legs and the cycle to repeat itself.
