Lincoln Riley May Have Been Smart to Leave For USC

The SEC is about to go to 16 teams. That makes winning the league even harder. If the Playoffs don't expand to a point where 4-5 SEC teams have a chance to make the tournament every year being a coach in the SEC is going to be even harder than it is now. It's already getting to the point where 3 years is considered long term for a head coach.

Would a guy like Venables or some other "top" candidate want to walk into that? It would have to be mainly for the money because I don't see Oklahoma or Texas walking into the SEC and immediately dominating and whoever is coaching either of those teams is going to be under a microscope.

Lincoln Riley has a better chance to succeed at USC than he would long term at Oklahoma. He'll probably get Caleb Williams to transfer to USC and have a QB ready to go. Heck, maybe DJ would go home too.

For a whole host of reasons.

I think you are likely right about the SEC angle, but I think also USC is simply in a position they could dominate the West coast and become a perennial playoff contender. Way too much talent is out that way, and the PAC is ripe to be dominated by a dynamic offense.
