Here’s something you didn’t know about Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey: He once had a pot-bellied pig named Terrance that died of obesity.

Let’s just say our sentiments are in line with this:

To be fair, pot-bellied pigs may not be easy to keep on a diet. But man, there is a fine line between fattening up a pig for an epic bacon breakfast and letting the poor thing die of obesity.

This is just one of the interesting things about McCaffrey, who is quite an eclectic young man (watch him own a harmonica).

McCaffrey is one of the top Heisman Trophy favorites entering the 2016 college football season (list of favorites here).

He will be one of the most exciting players to watch this season, and we can’t wait to see what he’ll do to top his record-breaking 2015 campaign.
