Gut feeling that Mycah Pittman might have just been delaying his decision for a home-run hire like this.  Wouldn't be surprised to see him now surface as a Trojan commit...

Probably will end up at USC... I was thinking he would end up there no matter who they hired. They got his older brother into the NFL and that's all that Mycah wants.

Any chance this means USC is planning to leave the Pac12 for SEC?

Why would Riley leave OU now? He had to be in agreement or why would the school leave the Big12.

Riley likes being the top guy in his conference. He would be middle-of-the-road if he went with OU into the SEC.

Geat news for the Pac12. Not such great news for the Ducks. If Riley can bring his freshman quarterback with him, he's set. That kid can play.

     Whether the Riley hire makes you nervous or not,  it’s a great move and will be a big factor in west coast recruiting, but not the only factor.  Location and vision play a big part as well in the eyes of recruits.

 

     The disadvantages of being in the LA basin as compared to more inviting and livable environs like Eugene, plus our new indoor training complex that will specifically target warming trends that affect air quality are equally important, especially to parents. 

 

     We’ve got our advantages too, and MC knows that.

Inviting and livable is subjective. Not everyone prefers a small college city feel.

It will take LR at least 2 years to make USC good.

 They might get to "Good" faster than that. But Helton had talent, just never seemed to connect with the team or the fans, and SC fans are frontrunners. Helton wasn't a Name when USC hired him, Riley is a star. Snoop Dogg will be at practices again.

I am shocked! Never believed this hire could or would happen?

 

SC over the SEC? At last the conference gets it right. How long has it been since the conference hired a successful, currently employed coach from the P5?

 

An off the charts hire for the Pac-12. How many guys will follow him from OK? And talk about a QB whisperer with Dart at QB?

 

This may not be good news for Oregon but it is great news for the Pac-12.

Not convinced Riley did much at OU with all his talent. He's kind of a hype hire. He saw the SEC coming and said no thanks. He's in year 5, so as usual with coaches, you might be lucky to keep them 5 years before they write a big check for themselves and start the cycle over. I thought Riley underwhelmed with the deep talent pool they've had since Stoops.

A CFP for Oregon just got tougher.

...or easier. The tougher the PAC 12, the easier for a one loss team to get in.

In the PO every year since he has been a HC? What more do you want?

Now we need a great his for the Fuskies.

 

I know people will hate me for saying it, but we need at least three power teams. If Herm and Chip won't develop them, brand name will suffice.

Nah... UW doesn't have to be relevant with a great coach. Jonathan Smith and the Beavers can take UW's place in the hierarchy.

Oklahoma has been a big fish in a rather small pond... Oklahoma has been the Clemson of the big-12. 

 

Going to the sec would make his job a lot harder for the same expectations. Going to USC means he just has to contend with a rising Oregon which isn't as intimidating as Bama, TAMU, or Georgia... Or whoever takes over at LSU.

On Saturday night, Lincoln Riley confirmed his commitment to working towards making the Oklahoma football program “Better!”

 

“All of us are trying to make this place better, make this program better, and so you don't do that without working together and conversing with each other.

So of course we're gonna continue to do that. We work well together, and we're going to keep working well together."

 

On Sunday, Lincoln Riley provided his solution to how he intends to “Work together” to make Oklahoma “Better!”.....

He should have pulled a reverse USC leaving Lane on the tarmac move and on the ride back to Norman asked them to drop him off at the airport.

He will flip some recruits, we will see.

MC needs a QB guru now, and better grow as a coach, quick.  My couch saw that onside kick coming yesterday, that's poor coaching.  We can't close teams out, all year.  I hope we beat Utah of course, but recruiting CA just got harder, and what WR wants to go to Oregon?  It's good for the Pac, just hope the playoff goes thru the north not the south.  That is, if we can not LOSE 1 or 2 gimme games a year.

Does USC even understand what the Trojan horse was? I mean honestly... The Trojan horse is something you DON'T want... Is this implying that Riley will destroy the USC program by brining it completely to the ground? 

 

In my Latin class at UO we did discuss how USC's classics department wasn't brought in to consult with their athletics. So I suppose the trend will continue.

It looked Oregon was pretty ready for it but that ball bounced PERFECTLY. An Oregon player should have been more aggressive jumping towards the ball but most onsides kicks don't have a bounce quite that beautiful. 

 

However, I will agree the coaching should have had the whole team ready to more aggressively attack the football.

A lot of his own recruits for starters... Then it will be a real battle with Oregon and MC after he fights his current program.

I’m seeing a lot of posts about how this is good for the conference. I can’t argue that, but I’m ok with the alternative “Clemson/ACC” approach. I’d rather Oregon have all the talent in the conference and dominate.

 

The lack of a powerful USC hasn’t been an obstacle to Oregon (the opposite would be) getting to the playoff, head-scratching losses to lesser teams/talent have been.

Napier officially at UF.

 

Riley to SC is big. First time in many a moon that the Pac-12 has hired a successful, on the job, P5 Coach.

 

Hats off to Bohn and the SC administration. At least 1 team besides Oregon is willing to spend the money needed to be a big time competitor.
