Lincoln Riley buried by Twitter, rival fans during Pac-12 Championship Game loss to Utah




 

If something like this happened - and by "this," we mean Lincoln Riley losing decisively in a big game - you knew the wolves and the vultures would be out in force.

Lincoln Riley got blown up and blown out in College Football Playoff losses at Oklahoma. It happened against Alabama in the 2018 season and the Orange Bowl. It happened against LSU in the 2019 season and that year's Peach Bowl.

"Chokelahoma" and "Jokelahoma" were familiar jabs lobbed at Riley in the wake of those avalanche-style losses.

Now USC is tasting the Lincoln Riley schadenfreude. Again, you knew it was coming.

Simple point: All the hatred coming from the outside is a reminder that USC is in fact back. USC matters again. USC is nationally relevant. Trojan fans should cherish that and let the hate slide right off their shoulders.

Here's what the hatred looked like:

PREDICTABLE

YAWN

NOT THE WORST PROBLEM TO HAVE

THAT'S A NEW RULE

REALLY ORIGINAL

OF COURSE, SKIP

MATH

OKAY, THIS IS ACTUALLY FACTUAL

USC'S TEAM IS GOOD (JUST NOT BETTER THAN UTAH)

YEAH

NO ONE WILL ARGUE WITH THIS

WHATEVER

TRUE

TERRIBLE COACH, RIGHT?

HE'S A BUM

FRESH ANALYSIS

AVERAGE COACH

DID YOU PREDICT 11 WINS BEFORE THE SEASON, SIR?

NUMBERS

NEXT LEVEL
