Interesting notes regarding Lincoln Riley

He's the first Oklahoma coach to leave voluntarily. Wow. And after only 4 years.

Was doing a little more looking. While his overall coaching record is 55-10, he's 1-3 in bowl games, and 0-3 in the CFP. But he has won 4 Big 12 Championships and 2 Coach of the Year awards. He kicked butt with OU's rivals - 4-1 with Texas, 4-1 with Ok St, and 1-0 with Nebraska.

Funny thing is he has two dogs, Boomer and Sooner. Wonder how they'll adjust to life in SoCal! How old it too old to rename dogs? :D

His 3 bowl losses were to UGa (54-48), Bama (45-34), and LSU (63-28). His one win was against UF (55-20). Maybe he wasn't too confident about how his Big 12 team would stack up against the SEC?

I would have jumped on that plane to Southern California just like Riley did. We can joke about the toughness of the SEC all we want, but I don't think ANYONE would refute the notion that is is FAR tougher than the Pac 12.

Hasn't been that tough for A&M. They've won 20 more games over the ten year period they've been in the SEC than the 10 years previous.

Dogs are so amazing. They want so little from us, mostly just our love. Sounds like your pup found a sweet home.

He was new to you, and you were new to him...manageable change.
If I start calling my 10 year old dog a new name, she'd ignore me.

So Riley can change their names to Fight and On easy enough.

Bob Stoops didn't leave voluntarily?

I should have said that he was the first to leave

voluntarily to go to another school. I forgot to include that key last part. Others have retired, but he's the first to voluntarily quit and go elsewhere. According to my source, anyway ;)

As a recruiting hotbed, California is on the level of Texas, Geo, Fla, even better for USC; they have no instate competition for the state's annual (30-50) 4 & 5 *s. He should be able to sign a top 5 recruiting class w/ little effort & w/o leaving the state. The weak Pac-12 schedule should allow ample time to prime the Fr & Soph blue-chippers for the CFP-
