According to this tweet from Ross Dellenger, Bob Bowlsby thought Lincoln Riley was too good for LSU.

“Those were certainly surprises,” Bowlsby said on SiriusXM. “Coach Riley had been mentioned in conjunction with the LSU position, and I really thought that there wasn’t much credence to that because I just, I know what a fine guy Lincoln Riley is. He’s an outstanding coach, obviously, but he’s a high-quality person and he is mature beyond his years. And so, you know, it was a little bit surprising that he jump ship (for USC), but I wasn’t surprised that he wasn’t interested in the LSU position because culturally that’s just not what Lincoln Riley is. And I was frankly surprised by the Brian Kelly move.”

Well, Bob Bowlsby tell us how you really feel about LSU and the football program. It sure feels as though he still has some personal feelings to work through after the SEC brought the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns to the conference.

Regardless of how the Big 12 commissioner feels about the hire or Lincoln Riley as a person, he now gets to watch that fine young man raid the Oklahoma cupboard.

All these flavors and Bob chose salty.
