    Let me see if I got this right. Napier looks like Sling Blade, sounds like Billy Bob and coaches like Earle Bruce. I can’t wait.

      Kiffin comes with baggage and probably wouldn't be long term. But we know that we know he can win in the SEC . He's been up and down his whole career but you're gonna some double digit win years and some explosive offenses at the very least. We don't know Napier's not the 2nd coming of Mike NorveLLLL.

        Kiffin is the clear slam dunk hire, but we're going to hire the Mike White of Football.

          Stacks and stacks of paper towels under the sink and like 20 rolls of toilet paper.

          Wait you’re talking about something else aren’t you.

                This is Butters/Cousin Eddie 2.0 Guys already trying to talk themselves into believing we've got the next Bear Bryant on the hook while in the same breath listing out all the things that "if he does this" he "might be great." Oh my Lord somebody perform an intervention on these people.

                  Picking a coach is like drafting a player in the NFL, some hit some bust.

                  Give me Kiffen. Will he better or worse than Napier? Who knows.

                  At least he’ll be entertaining, and taking him to Knoxville will be epic. I’m tired of boring coaches:

                  Muschamp’s 3 yards and a cloud of dust, followed by a pissed off presser about a midline. Nope

                  Mac: retarded on and off the field. Nope

                  Mullen: sideways offense and “virgin for life” demeanor. Nope.

                  At least Lane will give me some $hits and Giggles, and could hit. Napier could hit, but bringing him to Knoxville will be 5% as much fun.

                    Honestly, we have no idea whether Lane Kiffin can win the games that matter in the SEC. The evidence suggests he cannot. Dan Mullen has been closer against Alabama in his two tries than LK, and also has the head to head. At both ut and now at OM, he’s beaten the teams he should beat and lost the ones in question. It was exactly the same at USC. We just fired that.

                      Lotta boo hooing and nothing has even been announced. If it is Napier you need to save some of your negative energy and one liners. Pace yourselves.

                          The Dan Mullen bus left town already. Did you miss it? Destination Jax I guess.

                                Virgin for life? His freaky wife was sticking her tongue in every male that walked within 10 feet. I guarantee you she has invaded every orifice of his also at least a few times.

                                    He's got Foley in his ear telling him how to do it. With Zook he called Stoops and supposedly Shannahan, before magically deciding on Zook, who was way out of left field. Muschamp was supposedly number 3, but we know it was really his first call. Then came the butters hire. He literally three a dart at a map, hit Colorado and looked at which coach would be cheapest. Not a single person on Earth thought Butters was going anywhere major, but we managed to bid against ourselves. It's like they have to try and find the next "guy" so they can be called a genius, but it's like Wyle E. Coyote always having the anvil drop on his head.

                                      Well he doesn’t talk well. For sure. But it has nothing to do with his accent.

                                      But it has everything to do with his history. His offense is 58% rushing! You all thought Mullen’s offense was terrible? Wait until you see his.

                                      he was fired from Clemson because his offense sucked. He then left Bama to go be the OC for who? BUTTERS!

                                      He then was OC for a head coach for one year before that coach was fired. Went back to Bama and then went to Louisiana.

                                      He’s never been a P5 head coach. He’s never been a successful OC.

                                      Everybody talks about his time with Saban. He was just an analyst and a WR coach. I guess maybe he was a good recruiter for Saban? But who isn’t? That program is a machine.

                                      So how do people know how good of a recruiter he is?

                                      It’s like we’re in the land of crazy.
