[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image source="featured_image" img_size="large"][vc_column_text]In today’s Fact or Fiction, I look at three big recent topics in college football and decide whether the statement is indeed FACT or if it’s FICTION.
The ACC non-division proposal is the wave of the future
Farrell’s take: FACT
The ACC is leaning towards a 3-5-5 approach and no divisions now that the division qualification is gone for a conference championship game. And this is how it will go in other conferences as well. Three rivals and a rotation over two years of the others is perfect to keep traditional rivalries alive and well but allow more matchups we haven’t seen. It also gives them more freedom to make the schedule a bit more favorable for a good matchup in the title game. Wake Forest and Pitt are fine programs but that’s not what the ACC wants and now they can maneuver better to have perhaps a Clemson-Miami matchup or on a lesser scale a UNC-NC State matchup in the finale.
Jordan Addison will land at Texas
Farrell’s take: FACT
This is just a guess but I’m hearing Alabama is out and it’s Texas and USC. And Addison has relationships with Lincoln Riley and Caleb Williams at USC but doesn’t know the WR coach Dennis Simmons much at all and his relationship with Texas WR coach Brennan Marion is as strong as it gets. I just have a feeling Austin is more like home to him.
Kentucky QB Will Levis could be No. 1 pick next season
Farrell’s take: FICTION
CBS Sports has Levis as their early No. 1 for the 2023 NFL Draft and while I love his arm talent, he’s not going to be that top pick. In March of next season we will hear about him not being able to beat out Sean Clifford at Penn State, the double digit interceptions in his 2022 season and more and more nitpicking that will just keep him from that top spot. It’s just the way it works. He has a chance to be the best QB in the draft, there’s no question about that arm, but CJ Stroud, Bryce Young and others with stronger pasts will win the day.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
