[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:

Bru McCoy will be deemed eligible

Farrell’s take: FACT

McCoy’s journey is hard to track from Texas to USC to Knoxville but with USC coming out and saying they have no issue with him being immediately eligible, the NCAA will now make it a priority and allow him to be available for the opener. Why? That’s the way the NCAA works. Things need to be brought to national attention to happen, and now that this made front page news, he’ll be allowed.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

Texas A&M will prove it on the field this season

Farrell’s take: FICTION

Jimbo Fisher says it’s time to shut up and play, and I agree. Between spats with Nick Saban and defending his recruiting class against NIL, Fisher has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. Now it’s time for his team to suit up and play, and he’s confident heading into the season. But after an 8-4 season last year with arguably more experienced talent, I worry another 8-4 season is in the works. A&M is somehow No. 6 in the pre-season poll, but they have tough games on the schedule against not only Alabama but division foes Ole Miss and Arkansas, as well as tough games against Florida and Miami. An upset here and there, and we are looking at another average season and much more talk about Fisher being overpaid.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

The boosters made Quinn Ewers the starter at Texas

Farrell’s take: FICTION

Let’s be clear here. This wasn’t a bunch of guys in 10-gallon hats saying to Steve Sarkisian that golden boy Quinn Ewers has to be named the Texas starter because of NIL deals and other factors. This was a play by Sark to make the QB battle, a legit one, last as long as possible and keep hope in the corner of Hudson Card. Card has talent, and he would be very attractive in the transfer portal, but we all know Ewers is the future. So Sark played up the competition until rumors started, likely born in Norman and College Station, that Ewers wouldn’t be the guy. That’s when he knew the game had to stop, and he had to name his starter — which was always Ewers.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
