    No need to spin it. Riley helped recruit Winfrey and gave him a chance to play a great school like OU. I doubt he had a lot of interactions with LR once there. His beef seems to be with Grinch's scheme and how he was utilized. I see no conflict in his statements.

    Another funny thing that Winfrey said is that he felt like the defense played "tight". That's ironic because Speed D was suppose to give assignments specific enough that the players were supposed to be able to go balls to the wall every play and not have to "think".
    That drives me absolutely crazy about Bonitto. I mentioned the other day that PFF loved Bonitto so much that they rank him as on of the best edge, pass rushers in years, although we didn't always see the production. It wouldn't surprise me if he's more productive as a pro than he was here.

Now it's obvious that Winfrey was good enough to have drawn a double team on most snaps if he'd been allowed to play straight up, which really would have helped free up Thomas, Bonnito, etc. Unbelievable.

    if you are going job hunting you really don't need your former employer running you down to people that might be interested in hiring you. my guess is this isn't so much about how the pro's might look at him for having made comments in the past, but more about staying on the good side of Grinch and Muleshoe to keep them from trashing him to any NFL team that came around asking question.

    I think we all agree this is purely a gimmick. I don't see a problem doing it maybe once or maybe twice in a game if it worked, but Grinch's basis for this is flawed. It CAN create confusion for blocking assignments, but the OL will scheme and adapt their blocking assignments for this with a week to prepare. This never really worked consistently if at all, and there's a reason you don't see it in big boy football land. If it's not surprising them, then it's pointless.

    I should add that the Winfrey interview with Gabe and Teddy is absolute gold. They had to give a few warnings on it beforehand because he drops some f-bombs that have the guys rolling.

    He also said the constant substituting made it difficult to ever get warmed up or in a groove.

    I’ve enjoyed dragging the former staff and everyone who went with them and can’t wait to see them lose games, but picking apart what Winfrey’s agent had him say for PR is a little offseason even for me

    Which is really kind of silly as ANYONE WITH A BRAIN knows what LR did was pure trash. Those coaches and GMs aren't stupid. Oh, and if they are, you don't want to play for them anyway.

    Perrion made a number of tweets critical of the coaching staff and the players who transferred out.

    Every time I have to see one of this troll's posts I stick a pin in a voodoo doll of one of the board moderators because that's who I blame for the irritation.

    J/K.....sort of.

    Mods, we need to strike the name Perrion Winfrey from the official scrolls and never whisper the name again.

    With Lincoln Riley and Caleb Williams leaving Oklahoma for USC, there are some unhappy people in Norman, and that includes some players. However, Sooners defensive lineman Perrion Winfrey, who is preparing for the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft, is not one of them.

    In an interview with 247Sports’ Carl Reed, Winfrey explains that he doesn’t hold anything against either Riley or Williams. When it comes to Riley, Winfrey said the current USC head coach had a big hand in helping him develop into one of the top prospects in the 2022 NFL Draft. Winfrey said Riley just did what he thought was best for his career.

    “Sooner Nation obviously doesn’t agree with it, but No. 1,
    Lincoln Riley has done so much for my career,” Winfrey said. “I can’t even begin to bash him because I know what type of man he is personally and the type of things he has done to change my life. Yeah, we might be trolling on Twitter and stuff, but I know that Lincoln Riley
    is a great man, and he made a decision that he thought was going to be best for his family. I can’t knock him for that because, at the end of the day, he wants to see me win, and I will continue to want to see him win.”

    That's been my only claim the whole thread. I said he would succeed at just about any school with even a semi-competent OC. LR clearly qualifies given the proof from the last 7 years as OC at OU. I also said CW would succeed even if LR fails. USC could become the TTech of the Pac12 and CW would be fine from an NFL value POV. I don't agree CW made the best choice by going to USC, but I'm self aware enough to know I'm OU biased. I do believe I'm more objective than most here that are completely anti-LR biased.

Baker was more effective at TTech as a true FR, but again was only there 1 year and then 4 years at OU under LR. Again, attributing his development to TTech is a real stretch. Only Hurts was a 1 year mercenary and I think his year at OU boosted his draft stock - at worse it didn't hurt it. Rattler was on the fast track by the end of last year with 2 years at OU before the shit show of '21 happened. There are a zillion threads here speculating about what happened to the whole program last year that I'm sure you've read. I will say I believe Rattler was at least partly responsible for his own regression given his attitude. CW seems to be much more well liked by teammates and I don't see him having that problem.

Maybe, but both dudes (granted CW was a true frosh) had similar glaring weaknesses that LR seemed to struggle overcoming. Again, coincidence? I dunno, but let's not act like there's legitimate questions about LR's ability to work wonders...with guys only he's trained and/or high profile HS QBs. Kyler was that, but he's an enigma. Dude woulda willed a team like K-State into the CFP... :)
