Paul Finebaum didn't mince words about USC head coach Lincoln Riley when dissecting the Trojans meltdown on Saturday against UCLA on The Matt Barrie Show...

"I don't know when I've seen a worse coaching job by anyone than Lincoln Riley this year," Finebaum said. "It's a complete disaster. And, quite frankly, he 'ought to pack up. I don't really see what his path is moving forward."

"He blamed everything on Alex Grinch. They haven't been any better – they've been worse. Well maybe, Lincoln, you 'ought to look in the mirror." Finebaum said. "Maybe you're just a total fraud as a coach. Maybe you just lived off of a couple of Heisman winners and what Oklahoma did for you."

"Lincoln Riley is nowhere near the coach that we all collectively tried to make him out to be," Finebaum claimed. "And have you ever seen a college season ruined more than what Lincoln Riley did for Caleb Williams?"

While he is spot on that’s harsh, I wonder if he has an axe to grind.
Anyway my runner up pick would be how House has used Perkins this year.
At least Perk gets another year. Caleb stock has dropped for sure.

He was born and 3rd base amd thought he hit a home run. He walked into a machine that Bob Stoops nurtured and built. He's a great OC and a middling HC.

Everybody knows that House is a Top 10 Coaching fraud. How many coaching frauds get paid Top 5 $ for their position?
