USC starting quarterback Caleb Williams may be the favorite to win this year’s Heisman Trophy, but he is having something of a rough week.

First, he got hurt in the Pac-12 Championship Game. His injury, by all accounts, is legitimately severe. Then his squad lost the game and, in the process, their shot at the College Football Playoff.

As if all that wasn’t bad enough, Williams also managed to irk a large segment of the college football-watching world with his mocking of TCU quarterback Max Duggan.

Duggan’s Horned Frogs suffered a painful 31-28 overtime loss to Kansas State over the weekend. Understandably, he was very emotional after the fact because he was worried it would keep his squad out of the College Football Playoff. (It didn’t.)

Robert Griffin III tweeted this out in response to Duggan’s show of emotion:

Williams responded with this now-deleted tweet:

Understandably, the backlash was swift.

The responses to Williams’ act were not especially kind:

As a result, Williams had to come out and address the controversy. He did so with this message:

Fans were not overly-sympathetic.

The reactions were telling:

Williams should know better than anyone what it is like to be scrutinized. This is a guy who had to deal with, not only a teammate beef back at Oklahoma, but also some sorority girls outing him for his alleged foot fetish.

You would understand that would make someone more sensitive to others’ emotional plight, not less.

But alas, that is not the case.

In any event, Duggan is still headed to the College Football Playoff. Williams is not.

Will Duggan be able to get the ultimate last word with a National Championship victory?

Time will tell.
