Fact or Fiction: USC, Big 12-Pac 12 Issues, Texas & Oklahoma

Fact or Fiction - USC

Fact or Fiction - USC

[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:

USC is a good bet to win it all at 25-1

Farrell’s take: FICTION

I saw that USC was the most popular pick in Vegas to win it all and the odds fell to 25-1 and I wondered to myself — do people have money to flush? USC will be improved under Lincoln Riley we all know this. But are people forgetting this is a 4-8 football team from last season? And that an undefeated season is likely needed to even make the playoff as a Pac-12 team? Everything would have to go perfectly for USC to get there and even then they’d be hammered by Alabama or Ohio State. This is a bad, bad bet.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator][vc_column_text]

Fact or Fiction:

The Big 12 and PAC-12 are ignorant

Farrell’s take: FACT

This annoys me. Talks consisted of a few zoom calls and now the two dying conferences are done chatting. What they need to do is get in a room and figure out a plan of survival, i.e. a merger, or they can continue to watch teams get picked off by the big boys over and over again.

Fact or Fiction:

Texas and Oklahoma will still leave early

Farrell’s take: FACT

I don’t care what the athletic directors at each school are saying, I still think the Longhorns and Sooners get out of the Big 12 before 2025. So much can happen between now and even the next Big 12 media day in college football, and staying in the Big 12 is not only uncomfortable but it hinders progress greatly. And I’ve also learned that people in power love to lie, so I’m treating everyone in college football as a politician.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
