College football is the time for analysts and TV personalities to make bold predictions and place all their chips on a player’s future in football.
This year, two of the top college quarterbacks are USC Trojan and last year’s Heisman winner, Caleb Williams, and recent Colorado Buffaloes transfer and star quarterback Shedeur Sanders.
With the Colorado Buffaloes off to a hot start (compared to last season), many have taken to social media to choose who is the better player between the two, and a big TV personality has thrown his hat in the ring. Skip Bayless is known for making a living off his bold claims and consistently backing up his claims with his own personal reasoning.
While Sanders has had a great year so far, despite the lack of an offensive line in Colorado, Caleb Williams is on pace to win his second Heisman in back-to-back years. Both players are having great years, with Sanders racking up 1,781 yards and throwing 15 touchdowns with just two interceptions. The first-year Colorado Buffalo quarterback has been impressive and looks to be carving a name out for himself to later be called in an NFL draft. Williams is backing up his impressive 2022 season with an even better start in 2023.
Williams has 1,603 yards in five games with 21 touchdowns and one interception. The Trojan junior also has 71 yards on the ground for three scores.
While Skip Bayless is mostly making headlines by having outrageous takes and living by the mantra, “any publicity is good publicity,” his take on Sanders being the better quarterback between the two is just wrong, especially given the track record Williams has from last year.
Willaims outplayed Sanders in their battle yesterday in all facets of the game. Don’t get me wrong, Sander didn’t have a bad game, but it certainly wasn’t better than Williams. Still, I doubt yesterday’s performance changed his mind.
Most importantly, college football fans should enjoy watching these young men battling it out every week as both quarterbacks look to take their teams far into this year.
