Fact or Fiction: Coaches Poll, Oklahoma, Ayden Williams

Fact or Fiction - Ayden Williams

Fact or Fiction - Ayden Williams

[vc_row][vc_column][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.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

The Texas first place vote invalidates the coaches poll

Farrell’s take: FACT

Whoever voted for the Longhorns to finish No. 1 in the country in the recent coaches poll is either Nostradamus and will make a ton of money (Texas has a 5,000-1 chance on DraftKings right now) or they will look like a fool. Or someone is playing a bad joke. Alabama, Ohio State, and Georgia got first place votes and then you scroll all the way down to No. 18 and see Texas with a lone vote. It makes no sense for a team that was 5-7 last season and lost to Kansas at home. These polls are dumb anyhow but usually interesting but like the SEC poll where Vanderbilt got a first place vote, someone is ruining it for all.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

Oklahoma will still win the Big 12

Farrell’s take: FICTION

Even before all this drama with Cale Gundy I felt the Big 12 was far too wide open for anyone to be a clear favorite. But based on the coaches poll, OU is the favorite. The Sooners are ranked No. 9 in the country and the highest ranked team in the Big 12. But No. 10 and No. 11 respectively are Baylor and Oklahoma State and I think Kansas State can be a real dark horse here. Give me the field including Texas over the Sooners.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

Ole Miss will win the battle for Ayden Williams

Farrell’s take: FACT

LSU is charging strong and others are in the mix but to me, Lane Kiffin closes this one out in the end. Williams is one of the best receivers in the country that many haven’t heard of and an important in-state target for Kiffin. The offense at Ole Miss is perfect for him and it will win in the end unless LSU shows some unexpected firepower this season under Brian Kelly.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
