03.Aug.2015 Riley Pretending to be Modern (again)
This is funny.
So while at Oregon State, a few miles from the Ducks and watching them kill him ever year, he never thought to take inspiration from that offense. Now at Nebraska, he does?
Just shows how complacent he’d become. Now that fans have demands (not just expectations), there’s a fire under his ass, and he’s suddenly open to ideas.
Also hilarious is this:
“We just have to be really careful in what we select to do. And then, like I said, we’ve got to practice it like crazy so it becomes our identity. That’s what you’re always looking for.”
Always looking for that identity, Mike. How about this for your identity: a guy who is a chameleon, poseur, changing only to meet expectations of the job and nothing more…oh, and not knowing how to utilize players or timeouts. There’s your identity, buddy.
From a guy who emailed me this article:
I love how he is actually willing to change when someone puts their foot up his ass and he knows his job is in the balance if he doesn’t perform.
Precisely. Well said. Riley is the worst.
