    Deep down inside I think a lot of people were probably thinking that factored into his decision........

    If it did, its the smartest thing he has done all season.

    Volunteering to go from the Big XII to the SEC is like asking to switch from fighting Jake Paul to Canelo. The payday may be higher, but holy hell you are gonna get beat up.

    Just ask Jimbo how much he is liking the SEC. He has a 34-14 record. CDM just got fired after going 34-15. So yeah, enjoy the West coast and having to play one or two tough games a season. Its the smart move. Its why Kiffin bolts for Miami if that job comes open.

    This.

    And the SECW is a Murderer's Row. Georgia played Georgia Southern and Georgia Tech back to back while Alabama played a hyped Arkansas and Auburn. The West is a butcher shop.

    Georgia played Charleston Southern, a step up from where GSU is currently. Big difference.****

    Yeah.....what a leftist reply. Pretty typical tho. Riley simply didn't want the stiff competition in the SEC.

    If your goal is to win a national championship - you take the job that gives you the best shot. Do you think Dabo is called a ***** for staying at Clemson and bum rushing the ACC and not playing a single good team until the playoffs was a bitch move?

    I sure don't. I don't get why people think that there is a degree of difficulty awarded to the team that wins the national title. There isn't. You make the playoffs and you win two games. Making the playoffs is the key here.

    USC has name recognition and can be a top 10 program with the right coach and has the schedule to make it happen.

    OU is staring at becoming Nebraska. Their knowledgable fans know this is coming. They are about to become Nebraska. No amount of coaching can stop what is coming. They are going from playing Kansas, KSU and Iowa State to Georgia, Bama, and LSU. When you are the first to sell a failing stock, doesn't make you a *****, it makes you the smartest man in the room.

    Yeah, if I was a coach I would do whatever gave me the best shot at winning a NC. Wherever or whatever that might be. The moneys great yes, but most competitors want that championship above anything else and you do whatever it takes to get it. If it means moving on from where you're at you do it, at least I would.

    Dabo has an elite program. Why would he leave? Do you think he'd bolt if Clemson joined the sec? I think not

    ^^^THIS^^^

    Texas and OU have both benefitted a lot from being in the Big 12 and not a stronger conference. Their teams would likely have been better if they had been in the SEC and gotten challenged in the regular season more, but their records would have been much worse. Oklahoma is probably about to turn into A&M, and be a good program that is arguably more relevant nationally than they are in their own conference.

    Of course with a pod system, maybe more SEC teams will be able to stay in the playoff hunt with the entire conference not having to go through either Bama or UGA.

    Dabo has an elite program and still would have his championship opportunities probably cut in half if he joined the SEC. Oklahoma is not quite elite and will go from being in the playoff discussion almost every year to it being the exception. I don't think Riley is a p**** for recognizing that OU fans are going to have expectations that are not realistically attainable with OU being in the SEC.
