    No. Neither did Dan as MSU. He literally proclaimed his love for MSU just a couple days prior to his landing in Gainesville.

    Lets be honest. Coaches never say: "Man, I hate this dump. I can't wait to bail on these talentless kids and this crappy fanbase in this mudhole of a town.".:D

    1. I agree with everything you say about LK. (See the next post.)
    2. But a mod is allowed to click "c'mon man"...or in my case receive a boatload of them. :D

    He’ll give Saban and Coach O fits. I doubt we’ll see him in a SECCG but standby for upsets and disruption in the SECW

    Honestly? I think this is a great hire for both sides.

    Lane is avery good X's and O's guy.

    The problem is he kept jumping intp the deep end of the pool.

    NFL coach?
    Then Tennessee?
    Then USC?

    But this journey has been right finally.

    He was an OC...then head coach at a G5 program...and now a bottom dwelling SEC program.

    My guess is, this works out well for both sides. Not elite. But 8 win seasons may become a common occurrence.

    That said, I think we beat them soundly based on the states of our programs and staffs.

    I just think Lane finally figured this career building thing out.

    This should chap Briles a bit. It’s probably a job he thinks he should land. Not sure what his options are gonna be going forward, maybe a reunion with Lane.

    “FAU could do a lot worse than hiring 26-year-old Charlie Weis Jr. to run that program. #CFB and #NFL personnel folks rave about him. Would be a gutsy move, no doubt.“

    Ole Miss quickly finds a new coach. Contrast that with the cluster in Tallahassee.

    Is Ole Miss offering the bag man recruiting package for the next coach?

    To be fair, I’m sure they could have landed Kiffin if they targeted him. Dude’s been practically begging for a P5 job. Any job.

    “To recap: OM head coach Ed Orgeron had asst Hugh Freeze who became head coach of Ole Miss with asst Matt Luke while Orgeron became asst for Lane Kiffin who got fired & replaced by Orgeron, while Freeze got fired & replaced by Matt Luke who got fired & replaced by Lane Kiffin.”

    True, but they most likely could have landed Norvell pretty quickly as well if they had targeted him. Instead, they made idiots out of themselves by jousting at Stoops, Franklin and Meyer.

    Liked the post/video of Kiffin’s kid being told they were going to Ole Miss and his excitement jumping in the car and shouting SEC, SEC, ...

    Uh...NO!
    He's a garbage magnet. He can't help himself. It's his "calling" to be a POS.

    High risk/high reward, as it always is with Kiffin
