When we look back at what Caleb Williams’ college career looks like, it’s possible that Notre Dame football’s manhandling was the beginning of the end.
After suffering the kind of beating Caleb Williams did at the hands of the Notre Dame football team, it’s understandable that he might be contemplating wanting to call it a college football career. To follow that up with another loss to a Utah team that has become his nemesis, would only make a quarterback who is seemingly guaranteed a first round and perhaps first pick slot in the NFL draft think harder.
But is Caleb Williams really considering calling it quits on his college football career with a month to go? The answer to that question is that no one really knows, but there are at least some out there who seem to be pushing the USC QB in that direction.
Among those doing the pushing is college football analyst, Samuel Ocho. Ocho took to Twitter on Saturday shortly after Williams’ team lost its second straight, though at least this wasn’t the pounding it got from Notre Dame football.
It was still enough for Ocho to feel as though it’s time for Williams to call it an NCAA career.
"With National Championship hopes gone, Caleb Williams should consider sitting out the rest of the season. The Heisman is a long shot, CFB Playoffs are even less likely, and he won’t play in the bowl game. The risk of playing FAR outweighs the reward. Business decision."
Notre Dame football might have essentially ended Caleb Williams career
It seems extremely unlikely that Williams is actually thinking about calling an end to his season with regular-season games to play. USC is still, after all, in contention for a Pac 12 title, even if it will now be an up hill climb.
On the other hand, we’re in a new era of college football. And it would simply be hilarious if Notre Dame football was the program that showed that Williams isn’t the unbeatable god he’d been held out as for most of his team with the Trojans.
