Oh boy...  Starting to sound a lot like three Rose Bowls talk.  Lets not start giving him credit for the work his head coaches did.

Wait, so your agrument against his accomplishments as an OC is the credit goes to the HC. (Kirby Smart seems to proving it can be both)

And to prove this you take a slap a HC’s accomplishments? Essentially discrediting it?

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.

What is really his baggage that makes him not a person of integrity? Because he left UT for USC? CBB left Wisconsin for Arkansas a few days after he told his team he wasn’t going anywhere.

Because his AP vote did line up with what he said? CBB’s AP vote didn’t make what his actually ballet did either.

At UT he had some self reported Secondary NCAA violations. Seriously every school has this. CBB mistakenly tweeted an Oline recruit that was supposed to be a DM. Secondary Violation.

IMO Lane’s rep doesn’t match with the facts.

Lane Kiffin, would be a terrible hire. It is so much like what we currently have on the hill. Mr. Integrity, wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole. He stinks.

NOT NO BUT HE%* NO!  All we need is another big mouth bragger!  Now this would be called “win at all cost” ATTEMPT!

better than the "Win if we can, but at least we got a good APR" strategy we're running now.

His wife divorced him for banging so many co-eds on the side. Not sure we need that kind of drama again.
you JUST got thru saying he was divorced. Who cares who he bangs? Let the man coach.

Look at what he accomplished at Tennessee, nothing. He was fired. We don't want another BB hire.

FACT# He wasn't fired at Tennis-E, he left for USC.

All these "Morality Police" fans are what got our program into the mess its in.  We need to hire someone to win football games, not attend choir practice.  If they can do both, great.  If not, give us the wins.

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......

8-5, 10-2 (finished ranked #6), 7-6 (when the NCAA hammer dropped from the previous coach's indiscretions started to show), then 3-2 before getting fired from a team that went on to finish 10-4 and ranked #19.  I think under the circumstances, he did pretty darn good.  If you haven't seen it, watch 30 for 30 on the rise and fall of the Trojans.  There was a lot of corruption and the NCAA came down hard.  The fact that he never finished below .500 given the situation is quite impressive, in my opinion. 

He hasn't coached on a team with a losing record since 2008 with the Oakland Raiders.

Yes he is. Fantastic on offense and will recruit at a level we haven’t seen at Arkansas.

Plus he has that chip on his shoulder all successful coaches have had here

I am sure Saban, Tennessee and USC fans disagree.

??? He did good for Saban. Tennessee fans were so mad he left because they liked him. At USC, he was under sanctions from a previous coach and really did a decent job under the circumstances. Yes, he needed to grow up, but the guy would be a home run hire for Arkansas.

A boring hire talking about a “five year rebuilding phase” is not what we need now.
This guy brings excitement, coaching experience/talent and recruiting power.
