    Looks more like the ‘freshman 50’. No wonder Layla dumped him, well, no one really wonders..

    Of all the second tier coaches, Kiffen is the one I wouldn't want at fsu... he's not a championship-caliber cosch imo, but he's a very, very good recruiter.

    By sending Laquon Treadwell $100 bills? And who was the big fat OL he bought out from under us?

    Just got an e-mail from Ole Miss (where I got my doctorate) confirming the hire. Totally surprised me. I know Jon Daley had been lobbying Lane to go to Arkansas. Not sure which is a better job. Now we have to listen to Kiffi's crap at SEC media days. Ugh.

    I don't really get the excitement over hiring Kiffin at any program. Where has he really been a successful head coach other than FAU?

    Look what happened at UT, USC and the NFL. Sure, he could recruit but that was as a young guy with a bit of an attitude that players seem to like. Now he's an older, out of shape guy who probably doesn't have quite the same vibe.

    Not a bad hire for Ole Miss. He's freeze-esque and that worked out pretty well until the scandal.

    Still trying to figure out where he got this rep as a great recruiter.

    I'll be rooting for Lane every game but the game he plays us. Always thought he deserved at least one more shot in P5. Twitter talk of him bringing Briles along and reaching out to Charlie Strong.

    I'll be waiting for his diarrhea mouth regarding Saban and Bama. It should be entertaining.

    roster wise? I’d say Ole Miss. It’s gonna take years for Arkansas to catch up to SEC offenses.

    I’m guessing Arkansas shouldn’t have fired Morris. It was a bad fit, because of the style of offense he wanted to run. That was at least a 5 year rebuild, but they didn’t even give him 2 years.
