    I think Kiffin is going to do well at Ole Piss.

    I know he had the issues at Maryland but it’s a solid hire I feel like, he also always seemed to do well recruiting for us.

    He should hire Hugh Freeze at OC to create the land of misfit toys. It’s would be pure entertainment reading the wild recruiting violations 4 years from now when Bama turns them in for their below average bag game discretion.

    Not a Kiffin fan, but his presence at Ole Miss will hurt Hail State in recruiting.

    Hey...look at it this way....

    It'll now be a contest to see who can crawl out of the cellar in the SEC west....
    Will it be Ole Miss...or Arky??

    Maybe we should wait until their coashing staffs are filled, and start a poll. :D

    I think Kiffin might do well and with the name image likeness rule Bama fans will have to get creative when they search for violations.

    Maybe we should wait until our game with Miss next year before we run our mouth??

    Rumors are they’re going to finish off the staff with Bobby Petrino.

    I bet y'all a hotty toddy ole piss wins the egg bowl 2020 and thensome next year and in the immediate future..

    Think what you will about that staff, dudes can coach and recruit.
    I find Lame kind of entertaining. Far moreso than Smart or saban or mcelwain or muschamp or tens of others. Not quite near as interview-entertaining as Ogreron or Leach though lbh. I hope Jameis Winston never stops interviewing because those are always the best

    Durkin is a good defensive mind. I’m surprised Muschamp didn’t find a way to get him on staff here.

    I will say right or wrong opposing coaches will use this Maryland thing against him in recruiting.

    This. Remember 2008 Ole Miss beat a Tebow-led team 31-30 in The Swamp. Seems like sometimes we struggle with UM or MSU, even though, on paper, we are 10x better than them.

    It is also true that we play them at the end of a 7 game stretch with Tennessee, USCe and LSU as 4,5,6.

    We have no idea whether “dudes can coach and recruit” until we see what happens at OM. It’s a different school with bigger colleges competing for players and all the rest of it.

    Because we’ve had such a problem with Ole Miss? Really? Wow that duo really has me worried...not. Both coaches with baggage should be interesting to say the least
