The board and president of USC need to pay more attention to running an academic university than to who coaches the football team. Lincoln Riley jumps ship and abandons his team just before Oklahoma joins the SEC, where it will be tough and they will struggle to be a top 25 team. The license plate exclaims “SCRULES.” On Page 1 of the same day’s Sports section is a blaring headline proclaiming that fact that USC has just hired perhaps the premier young football coach in American, Lincoln Riley. Bob LentzSylmar::As a lifelong Bruins fan my confidence was challenged when I heard the trumpets of joy that Lincoln Riley was anointed as the new GOAT at USC. Acolyte after acolyte piled on such praise that I thought USC had spirited away coach Bud Wilkinson from his current high position, rather than a mere mortal like Lincoln Riley.
