I'd take him as HC of the Hogs.  It's not gonna happen, but I'd take him.

Getting fired before is the only reason to not hire someone (especially since one was the NFL) the Nick Saban and Bill Belichick wouldnt be he HOF coaches they are.

Fired before 40. Kiffin is/has only improved and is better prepared than some Asst. or non P5 HC coach will be.

eh, I admit, even though I could care less about the Vols, I did feel sorry for the way he up and left in the dead of night. 

Of course we hired a coach who did the same thing to the Falcons so...shrug...

He might do well and it might really tick Nick Satan off to have to go up against him every year.  Of course Nicky would probably hang 3 or 4 more TDs on us to prove his point if Kiffin became our next coach.

If Lane Kiffin were out HC he could take back to where BP had us.  He knows it would be his last chance.  Risk is there but the rewards could be great. I would roll the dice on him.

When he was at Tn he landed a helicopter at kids HS game to recruit a kid.

He is only 4-3 at FAU.

FAU hasn't won more than 3 games in 6 years. Over 4 games in 7 years.

Your dismissal is laughable.

Itís possible they win out. Which would be an amazing turnaround in one season

Currently 3-0 in conference average margin of victory in conference is 28 points

Here the thing. He will get a non-compete to other SEC schools. Then there are only a handful of that pay this much. Itís the same reason Mullen canít get out of MSU even though he tries every off-season. He canít/wonít take a the 1.5 paycut.

Outside SEC job that can pay what we can, Texas, OU, OSU, Michigan, Penn State, and USC. They arenít coming for Kiffin for various reasons. This is also a reason we were able to keep Petrino.

So now everyone thinks we are just a stepping stone to a better job?  If that is true CBB took this job as stepping stone for somewhere else.

I donít and Our history show this. Twice NFL HC have left for Arkansas. We pulled the 3 straight Big 10 Championship Coach. Because good coaches know they can win here.

But I also understand there are some programs that are better jobs.

Hello.
Eddie Sutton was drunk and no one is talking about basketball.
Hatfield did not get along with the AD and the fans were hard on his butt wanting him gone.
When football coaches are in favor here (the point of my response) they donít voluntarily leave.

I think you are correct if Kiffin is the OC, BAMA wins.  But that could have been true with any OC who had been there longer.  Saban rolled the dice likely thinking he could make the difference himself.

Kiffin at Arkansas would not scare Saban.  Saban knows his personal work habits are why he does better than most.  He knows that most coaches will not put in the time and effort to be great.  He might ease up on us like he does for Bret if Kiffin was the HC.  We wouldn't improve our chances of beating BAMA if Kiffin was the HC.  Kiffin is one of several who could get us to 8 wins most of the time and 9 to 11 on occasion.  Others are Gus, maybe Venables, maybe Morris at SMU

Let's be honest...who at Arkansas might scare Saban? 

Saban doesn't strike me as the kind of guy to put his tail between his legs.

This. Iím not looking for a coach to go head to head with Saban. But if we can find a guy that beat the teams we should like Petrino did. We will be headed back in the right direction.

Kiffin can do that

We need to forget about Sabin and concentrate on the games we're supposed to compete in and win. When facing Alabama we need to play conservative and as much as possible avoid injuring our players. Once we develop a competitive team then we can think about jumping on Alabama. I would play my third team more to give them experience.
