    Players Tribune - Lincoln Riley "Sometimes Life Throws You a Curveball"

    Read up https://www.theplayerstribune.com/po...tball-oklahoma

    I still think he is full of shit in what he wrote.

      Eat a bag of dicks, Lincoln. Why he still craves approval from Oklahoma is beyond me. He took on the role of a villain when he left, and he has moments when he played that role well. Embrace it, Linc...you sorry sack of shit.

      The real question is...as time goes by, which of these two coaches be viewed more favorably? Riley or Howard Schnellenberger?

        It's all spin. The negative recruiting must really be hurting them.

          I remember Schnelly refused to recruit Louisville recruits because he first recruited them on Louisville's dime. So, in my book: Schnellenberger > TBOW

                      It was clear from my opening press conference at the Coliseum that the Trojan faithful were hungry to get this program back to the top of the collegiate football landscape.
                      So clear.

                        Negative recruiting would be what other teams are saying about him. Nobody sells themselves like LR.

                          Looks like he's recruiting a bunch of jockeys.

                              Just come out and tell the truth. There were three very simple factors.

                              1. You didn’t like the direction of the program. Be it administration moves, conference realignment, TV money or something else… you honestly feel in your heart and mind SC is better in this category.
                              2. You have a slimy agent who used the program that made you to steal a record-setting contract.
                              3. You honestly think certain aspects of your job will be easier in LA. Be it recruiting, cheating with SC alumnus money “NIL” benefits or you just wanted to stay in a lame duck conference without a power player on SC’s level— which leads us back to point no. 1.

                              Ultimately, you bitched out. You, every player, recruit and coach who left. Better hope that bottomless well doesn’t have the same issues counterproductive to football operations that the program in Austin does.

                                  4. Asked to leave because you couldn't get your nose out of the bottle and got physical with your old lady.

                                    Everybody sees what you did and who you are Lincoln. Can't believe there was a time I used to be proud you were OUr coach. Enjoy your suck ups.

                                    Didn't see it at the time because we bought into your BS. Looking forward to better times.

                                      Riley didn't receive some of the things that he wanted for the program, and he was left out of the decision process on moving OU to the SEC,
                                      This has been talked about and speculated on for since he left.

                                      Given this last season's poor play from the first game, there is a good chance Riley knew he wasn't going to return because he was pissed off over the above.

                                          I was excited from the day Lincoln to.USC was announced for OU football and nothing Lincoln wrote there changed that.

                                            Upon initial reading I did feel that he was being fairly genuine. I'll choose to believe the part about him wishing he could do some things over again.

                                            With that said, almost immediately I thought of how manipulative he is and how he tried to burn down OU on the way out. I'll bet he's getting negative recruiting and families are mentioning it to the point that either he, his agent, or the AD, said release a statement.

                                              Especially with the recent comments from former players like Spenser and Isiah, i guarantee he was told to "put something out that paints a good picture of you".

                                                Nothing new - you saw an opportunity, but why was that opportunity not at OU? As soon as someone wants to start spilling the beans on what happened all season, then all of this is just a big nothing-burger.

                                                But the timing of this letter is odd - this wreaks of "please forgive me and accept my decisions". Just like you didn't all season, you shouldn't care what we think at this point. If you truly love your new place, own it. California is lovely. If you think you made an impulse mistake, too bad. You still own it. No need to look back.

                                                  So five months after finishing up a half-assed season and slinking out of town under cover of darkness, it speaks.

We are lucky we had compliance watching over him. He will have USC on probation in a few years after he leaves for the NFL.

                                                                                        This has been talked about and speculated on for since he left.

                                                                                        Given this last season's poor play from the first game, there is a good chance Riley knew he wasn't going to return because he was pissed off over the above.
                                                                                        An article like this would actually mean something if he even hinted at that kind of conflict. If OU really wasn’t willing to invest and expand the staff before the conference move the way they are now, it could be bad for one’s job security at a place that expects 10 wins. We don’t want scared coaches here, and it still doesn’t excuse half-assing what should’ve been a title run, but it makes a whole lot more sense than, what, burning OU to the ground on a few hours’ notice so your girls can go (or if anyone within 100 miles has coughed in the last 24 hours, not go) to a more expensive and more ideologically bonkers private school? It at least wouldn’t insult our intelligence.

Instead he wrote some puff piece so he could control the narrative and not face any questions. He is a narcissist but he’s also weak minded because he can’t be a man and face what he did. He’s hiding behind layers of PR. He doesn’t want to take questions or answer for how he left.

                                                                                                  He’s a bitch. He’s not man enough to answer for his own actions. He took the easier path like the bitch that he is. Good riddance. OU is in much better hands with better days ahead. I hate the way it went down, but the end result is a huge victory for OU football.
