It’s too bad USC is leaving for the Big Ten, because Lincoln Riley-Dan Lanning would have been fun

Read Time:2 Minute, 17 Second

Lincoln Riley secured some major prospects via the transfer portal. Dan Lanning responded on Wednesday with a massive early sign-up period statement.

It’s unfortunate we aren’t going to see Riley and Lanning maintain an on-field coaching rivalry over the next decade, because they would have been in position to develop quite a battle in the Pac-12.

Because USC is leaving for the Big Ten, USC and Oregon won’t be annual opponents beginning in 2024. While Riley and Lanning may still be at odds on the recruiting trail or in the transfer portals, Oregon and USC fans will not be able to enjoy the drama of watching these coaches play against each other.

USC attracted a top-notch recruiting class in the early sign up period, but Oregon was the largest winner. as national analysts and our friends at Ducks Wire noticed on a day when Lanning took to social media and smoked a victory cigar after all of his huge flips, pulls, and last-minute successes:

“Many of the recruiting services consider Oregon one of the big winners on signing day. According to writer Andrew Ivins of 247Sports:

The news broke shortly after 8 AM on the East Coast that Top247’s quarterback Austin Novosad was switching from Baylor to Oregon. Most Ducks fans on the West Coast were probably asleep, but that’s OK because that Novosad flip was really just a preview for what was to come next.

In the span of roughly six hours, Oregon went from holding the nation’s No. From the 14th-ranked recruiting group to No. 7th-ranked recruiting class to the No. Oregon is still waiting on Bowen’s LOI at time of this article. LSU was also able to be ejected by Daylen Austin, Top247 cornerback.

Dan Lanning is having a great day at work, and Oregon is in prime position for signing its third highest-ranked 10-ranked recruiting class in 10 years.

“While the Ducks are riding high, in the famous words of Ace Ventura, “In every contest, there must be a loser.” According to Ivins, one of those losers is former Oregon coach Mario Cristobal.”

They’re having fun in Eugene, but Oregon and USC aren’t going to be regular football opponents over the next decade.

USC’s departure for the Big Ten will prevent a coaching rivalry from forming, even though the Trojans and Ducks are going to compete for recruits and talent. It’s just not the same when two schools aren’t meeting every year on the field. That’s too bad.
