Lincoln Riley gives Oklahoma players pep talk after first quarter destruction
Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley was trying everything to get his team going after an abysmal first quarter against Alabama in the College Football Playoff.
With the Sooners down 21-0 and on their heels again defensively, Riley had the entire team huddle around him for a pep talk to try to get something going before the game got completely out of hand.
Lincoln Riley just pulled entire team for a chat. I’d guess it’s something along the lines of, “that, that not so much”. pic.twitter.com/I4mJFOHz6d

ESPN cameras caught the chat as well, with Riley aggressively exhorting his team in a desperate attempt to motivate them. Unfortunately, it didn’t really pay dividends, as the Crimson Tide completed the drive to make it a 28-0 blowout early in the second quarter.
