In fact or today’s fiction, Mike Farrell looks at three major recent topics in college football and decides whether the claim is indeed FACT or FICTION.
1. LSU needs further from Ed Orgeron.
FARRELL’S RECORDING: FICTION. Let’s get real. LSU struggled last season and was absent this year, but the loss of talent from the 2019 national title team was epic and it’s a little too early to say Ed Orgeron should be gone. Aside from Alabama, the SEC West is all over the map with teams like LSU, Texas A&M and others playing up and down football.
Orgeron shouldn’t be on the hot seat as he has more national titles than anyone not mentioned by name Nick Saban or Dabo Swinney in the country and this is still a young team in many areas.

2. Oklahoma fans should be ashamed of cussing and yelling at Spencer Rattler for his backup.
FARRELL’S RECORDING: FACT. After another nice win over Kansas State this time, one thing has become clear to me: Oklahoma wouldn’t be undefeated without Spencer Rattler’s net worth. With this terrible line of attack from Sooners, Rattler’s ability to move and go through progressions is key.
Yes, Caleb Williams would run more effectively, but he certainly wouldn’t deal with the constant pass rush. Jeering your starting QB and singing for backup despite being undefeated, as Oklahoma fans did against West Virginia last week, is just bush league.

3. Cincinnati decides its own fate for the college football playoffs.
FARRELL’S RECORDING: FICTION. The Bearcats are No. 5 in the nation and Iowa and Penn State will face each other this weekend, so one of them is likely to fall behind Cincinnati if it continues to win. However, the Bearcats have no one left on the schedule with a heartbeat (SMU won’t be ranked when it plays Cincinnati) and we all know that an undefeated Oklahoma or SEC team with one loss will win the wink over a team from a group of five eventually.
I just think the committee will find a reason to keep the Bearcats out even if they go undefeated.
