Colin Cowherd, who never attended USC, has been fawning over the Trojans and head coach Lincoln Riley all over social media as soon as the former Oklahoma head coach bolted for Los Angeles. He took things to a whole new level with a tweet on Tuesday.

According to Cowherd, USC is only going to need 18 months before it’s unanimously a better program than Oklahoma.

Cowherd is literally paid to stir the pot and deliver hot takes. He knew exactly what he was doing with his latest tweet about Riley, the Trojans, and the Sooners, but that doesn’t mean his opinion should just be accepted.

Most college football fans can agree that USC football will be better this season, and will be fun to watch for the first time in quite a while with Caleb Williams under center. It’s Cowherd’s statement about Riley being the “best offensive head coach in college with these weapons” that has quite a few fans angry in the comments.

Riley had plenty of weapons during his five seasons in Norman and mentored two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks. While that’s true, so is the fact that he was never able to take the Sooners to that next step, which is of course a national championship. Riley posted a record of just 2-3 in bowl games overall.

Let’s also not act like Brent Venables and the Sooners are going to take some sort of giant step back this season. Oklahoma is still a member of the Big 12, last I checked.

Cowherd has every right to be excited for the upcoming USC season, just like college football fans have every right to clown him on Twitter for his hot take:
