It’s been about a day since Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley met with the media to discuss the first game of the season.
So much information, so difficult to digest. Let’s dig in.
What Lincoln Riley said about the defense: “It’s a process. It’s year one. It’s about consistent improvement. We want to get off to a great start.”
What Lincoln Riley meant about the defense: Hmm. This is a good one, but this statement loosely translates to Riley hoping, for crying out loud, his team can get off the field with a third-down stop, and if we give up 40 points against Houston, there are going to be so many questions next week, and the week after, and the week after, about how nothing’s ever going to change defensively around here. Yeah, it’s year one, but this (expletive) better get fixed, and I mean now.
