Lincoln Riley talked about himself and Caleb Williams today: “Could you have gone through more as a player and a coach in a calendar year?”
Give me a break.
The fanboys will agree with Riley but I wouldn’t say they went through a lot of adversity. Riley’s making $10 million a year and living in a $17 million house in Palos Verdes. Williams has more NIL deals than just about any player in the country and was anointed the QB
Both made their own choice to leave Oklahoma for USC.
If you want to talk about adversity look at USC players who had Lane Kiffin, Ed Orgeron (interim), Clay Helton (interim), Steve Sarkisian and Helton as head coaches in a four-year career. Or the offensive linemen who had five different position coaches from 2012-2017.
That was adversity.
