Despite a terrific freshman season that ended in an Alamo Bowl win, Caleb Williams decided to take a page out of Spencer Rattler’s book and enter the transfer portal. And it’s a move that has ESPN’s Paul Finebaum very interested.

Appearing on SportsCenter earlier this week, Finebaum said that Williams’ decision shows that we now have “free agency” in college football. Finebaum called the move “one of the most amazing moves” in college football history. He hinted that Williams’ decision might wind up being based on where he gets the best NIL deals.

“We now have free agency in college football. It’s as simple as that… Caleb Williams was the top player in the country a year ago. He shows up at Oklahoma and what does he do? He supplants Spencer Rattler who’s the Heisman favorite. Not the No. 2 guy, but the favorite. And now

Paul Finebaum Reveals His Pick For The Heisman Trophy

Paul Finebaum knows where his vote is going for college football’s most prestigious award.

Finebaum has had Alabama quarterback Bryce Young as his favorite for a little while now and after his performance against Georgia, that sealed it for him.

He appeared on SportsCenter on Sunday morning to explain his rationale behind this.

“It was masterful,” Finebaum said on SportsCenter. “A week before (against Auburn), he had a Heisman moment, but he didn’t have a Heisman game. This was absolutely a Rembrandt on the canvas for Bryce Young. I don’t want to upset my bosses who are going to be promoting the Heisman award next week, but it’s a non-starter. This thing is over. Bryce Young has won the Heisman Trophy.”

Young finished with 421 yards and three touchdowns against Georgia. He also did most of that work without top receiver John Metchie, who had to

Is the 2021 Heisman Trophy race locked up?

Not quite, but ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum believes we have a clear leader following Saturday’s rivalry games.

According to the ESPN college football analyst, Alabama quarterback Bryce Young has taken the lead in the race for the Heisman Trophy.

“About halfway through yesterday, it was nobody, because nobody seemed to want it,” Finebaum said on SportsCenter on Sunday morning. “At the end of the day, Bryce Young may have won it. He still has a huge game remaining. He had his most pedestrian day yet for Alabama, but all that matters is how he finished. And in the most important drive of the season for Alabama, he was flawless. He was unbelievable. He still needs to finish the job next week

Paul Finebaum Rips 1 Major Fan Base For Saturday Behavior

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 07 SEC Championship Game

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: DEC 07 SEC Championship Game

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum went off on Tennessee fans for their behavior at Neyland Stadium on Saturday night.

Tennessee lost to Ole Miss, 31-26, in Lane Kiffin’s homecoming game on Saturday night.

Volunteers fans lost their cool late in the fourth quarter. The game had to be stopped when Tennessee fans threw countless objects onto the field, including golf balls. Ole Miss players and coaches had to leave their sideline, while Tennessee’s cheerleaders and band were escorted off the field for safety.

A Tennessee fan then threw a water bottle at Kiffin as he left the field following the game. Kiffin, in pretty epic fashion, caught the water bottle with one hand.

Finebaum was disgusted with his alma mater’s behavior.

“I thought it was classless and unconscionable behavior,” Finebaum said on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “It was an absolute disgrace. And I
