Oklahoma State Trolls Oklahoma With Lincoln Riley, USC Newspaper at Bedlam
The basketball edition of the Bedlam tipped off on Saturday as Oklahoma State hosted Oklahoma in Stillwater.
And needless to say, the Cowboys were in a trolling spirit. As you can see below, Oklahoma State’s student newspaper placed papers with a picture of former OU coach Lincoln Riley with his new employer at USC.
Ouch. Here’s what it looks like.
Of course it’s certainly never going to be lost on Oklahoma State fans that the last game Lincoln Riley coached with the Sooners was a loss to the Cowboys in Stillwater, who went on to reach the Big 12 Championship Game.
Riley took the USC job just a day after that loss, stunning OU fans and the entire college football world.
Since then, Lincoln Riley has become enemy No. 1 in Norman, especially as he’s poached some of the top players and recruits from OU to join him in Southern California, with quarterback Caleb Williams the most recent and notable one.
Needless to say, the pressure is now on Brent Venables to get OU back to winning the Big 12 and beating Oklahoma State before they leave for the SEC in a couple seasons.
If not, it could be a long couple of years of trolling from the folks in Stillwater to the folks in Norman.
