Fact or Fiction - Justice Haynes

[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:

Caleb Williams owned me

Farrell’s take: FICTION

But he came close. If you missed it, the current USC QB and former Oklahoma QB chimed in on my twitter account about something his dad said regarding the OU fan base. He said that the fans and his former teammates were the main reason he considered staying at OU which flies in the face of quotes his dad said about the fans in the LA Times. But when I requested an interview he did say he didn’t want to do one of my “stupid high school interviews” which is a funny comeback. He came close to owning me but the disconnect between Caleb and his dad seems to be a large one.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

UGA should worry about RB recruiting

Farrell’s take: FICTION

Justice Haynes, a legacy and highly rated recruit, chose Alabama over UGA on Sunday with Ohio State apparently second on his list. And I say if I’m a Georgia fan, who cares? Haynes is a talented kid there’s not doubt and an in-state loss but name a team aside from Alabama that has done a better job recruiting and developing running backs than Georgia in recent years. There are certain things I would never worry about — Alabama missing on anyone, Ohio State or LSU missing on and DB and so on. And UGA missing on a RB is right up there.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

Anthony Richardson is a class act

Farrell’s take: FACT

The Florida quarterback, who had been nicknamed AR-15 because of his initials, his jersey number, and that rifle of a right arm, has dismissed the moniker because of all of the mass shootings recently as he didn’t want to be associated with gun violence and an automatic weapon. At first, I was lost for words. I was annoyed that he had to distance himself from a cool nickname because of the insanity of our country in regards to firearms and mental health issues. But the more I thought about it, the more I felt so good about Richardson and his decision. Nicknames are fun and goofy. Automated rifles in the hands of mentally disturbed people are the complete opposite. I for one applaud him.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
