Kiffin could be exactly what we need...
« on: October 24, 2017, 12:12:16 pm »

Picasso realized the value in absurdity & publicity. What better way to mitigate the S- show this Bielema Fiasco has become than Kiffin? He brings talent, experience & HYPE! His wife is also Jen tier.

His wife divorced him for banging so many co-eds on the side. Not sure we need that kind of drama again.

We could do a lot worse than Lane Kiffen, I'd be good with that.

He went 7-6 in his FIRST Season & was offered a Halo job. What is Bielema going to finish in his SIXTH?

The hate for Lane at Tennis-E stems form abandonoing them after 1 year.  They wouldn't care if he hadn't been a good coach. 

He can recruit, he can coach O, he's young, he's wanted to be in the SEC, he's got familial connections to the U of A... alot of things point in this direction.

I think Kiffin could be good....He's doing decent with Florida Atlantic in his first year.....though I do believe he's using FA like Petrino used Western Kentucky......stay a season then bolt out......But I can see someone else snatching him up before we get the chance.....Someone like Florida or A&M (if Sumin's gone which is a possibility) would snatch him right up and throw their wallets at him in the process......The only thing that worries me is USC......He wasn't that great there.....I know he's had a few years under Saban since then, BUT his tenure at USC was a bit disappointing......But I'd be okay with that hire......

At this point don't really care who it is.  I realize that Bozo the Clown just died recently (RIP) but if he could bring us back to National prominence with a very good team, who am I to argue.  Point is, I want to win.  Plainly said.

I have to give him a "mulligan" at USC.  He was HC for 4 years, with yearly win totals of 8, 10, 7, and 3.  That was 4 of the 5-year stretch when NCAA penalties were imposed.  He was dealing with scholarship reductions, a temporary post season ban, a finding of "lack of institutional control" against the athletic department, and all the bad press that goes along with it.  I wouldn't want to recruit against that.  I see it as being more on Carroll/Bush, than Kiffin.  The farther away he got from the recruits he inherited, the more the recruiting restrictions affected USC's ability to compete.

Not convinced he is the answer, but I would support him if that was the decision made.  I don't expect JL to go in that direction.  Too many people asking questions about his character, and if he will get sarcastic with Saban, JL will be like "puppy chow."

Was this being a young inexperienced immature coach or is this still what LK would bring as a head coach:

http://www.latimes.com/sports/sportsnow/la-sp-sn-usc-fires-lane-kiffin-20130929-story.html


"The season also was marked by several off-the-field distractions.

After being told that Arizona Coach Rich Rodriguez had voted the Trojans No. 1 in the USA Today coaches poll, Kiffin said he would not have done that. USA Today then revealed that Kiffin had voted the Trojans No. 1. Kiffin subsequently gave up his vote in the poll.

Kiffin also banned a reporter from practice for reporting that kicker Andre Heidari had undergone surgery. The reporter was reinstated when it was shown that he had not violated USCís policy about reporting injuries that occurred during practice.

Kiffin and his staff came under scrutiny after quarterback Cody Kessler switched jerseys during a game against Colorado.

USC was later fined $25,000 after it was discovered that a student manager had deflated footballs against Oregon.

After the season-ending loss in the Sun Bowl, players reportedly argued in the locker room."


Minor stuff mostly but drama followed him.  Seems like risking a circus because he is a good play caller.

He wasnít bad at either considering the circumstances. Even finished 6th one year

https://lasentinel.net/usc-gets-college-football-s-death-penalty.html

Nice article that documents the penalties at USC he had to deal with. 2 year bowel bam and 21 lost Scholarships. Still went 28-15.

At UT took over a 5-7 team year prior and went 7-6. This year he has won 4 games at FAU for a school that hasnít won over 3 games in 6 years. They havenít won over 4 games in 7 season

Excuses? Iím commending the job he did.  We can also talk about his NC Championships and playoffs as a OC. Which is 2 NC and 3 Playoffs (might have been 3 if Saban let him coach the NC)

Zero chance Jeff Long would make this hire. Laughable people are talking seriously about it. Think about it...how would Lane Kiffin fall into the jeff long integrity wagon? He wouldn't...that guy has a lot of baggage.

There are about 100 or more OC's that could win with Bama's talent. Why? It's because they are there because of NICK.

The problem with Bert's game is he needs to have equal to or Higher talent to opponents at Most positions, to be competitive on the field. Especially at all positions on the O-line.

Arkansas for the immediate future will always be lacking or have less quality (Especially depth) at some key positions every week (With exception to the Coastal Carolinas).  Thus, for success, I think we need a coach who is good at "Smoke and mirrors".  One who can disguise weaknesses with creative game plans.  We will never be able to line up man to man and whip many of the SEC teams in a Straight up Power game.
