And this is where we agree.....I believe Kiffin would win big time here. Guaranteed he would take the job. He knows the SEC and he would provoke the hell out of Saban....

Would be a gamble just like Petrino but Kiffin I think has learned his lesson. I would love a Norvell or Campbell....but I would take Lane over both of them.

So we're impressed enough with his head coaching record at Oakland, USC, Tennessee, and FAU to really consider him a good option?  In my book, his only real success came while the OC for a stacked Bama team that I think lots of average offensive coaches could have achieved.  Enos would destroy defenses if he had that much talent to work with.

Kiffin wouldn't be on my list.  Maybe I should email my list to Long and Steinmetz.  I'm sure they're interested. ;)

Kiffin couldn't find success at the most high profile program in his conference, failed at the NFL, and did TN wrong.  His play calling cost Bama the championship against OSU and Saban thought so much of him he fired him before another championship game.

Kiffin has them 5-0 in conference.  And itís his first year.

But you seem to think I said Kendall Briles come on down.

I disputed your sex criminal label. If the man participated in a rape, rapes or other scurrilous sexual deviancy, you are correct.

If he didn't participate, he isn't a sex criminal. A scumbag maybe, that is debatable, I mean if some rough men took me against my will and did that, I would be calling the law....not Art and Kendall Briles.

Just my opinion.

He is a better coach than we have up there right now. The dude up there now would be in a dogfight if he played in Goblin stadium against the Goblins tonight. Hell, Harrison would be the favorite if Tom Tice was still coach.

Dude has done a good job at FAU this year. Team was 3-9 last year....I mean was our fearless leader 6-3 after his first 9 games in 2013?

Apparently not Scooter. Or you donít know anything about College Football.

He took over a train wreck of a program left by Charlie Partridge and already has them bowl eligible - 5 game win streak and undeafeated in their conference. Yeh, youríre right...he sucks.

If we could do the same next year with a new coach, everyone would be jumping up and down.

Like it or not, the guy can recruit his arse off, is a great offensive mind, and we would get some national spotlight just for having him.

If you like Petrino and say you hate Kiffin, then you have issues. They are cut from the same cloth. (Actually Lane is more likeable during press conferences and the recruits love him, unlike Petrino.)
