That's a reflection of how far the PAC-10 has slid. USC never recovered from Vince Young and Texas beating them. If Riley has similar success at the real USC as he had at OU look for the SEC's lock on having two teams in the playoffs every year get upended (They won't deny the BIG10 no matter how many blowouts they suffer. They make up the biggest student body and alumni associations in the nation). Riley has put his QBs in position to win the Heisman every year. That's a big draw for recruits and there is very little competition out west.
