Christmas comes early.

Honestly, I don’t know what I did to deserve something this good.

Talk about your match made in heaven:  the fake dog peeing football program is hiring what amounts to a fake dog peeing coach.  Junior’s yet to win anything bigger than a CUSA title in his head coaching career, but he’s guaranteed to draw attention wherever he goes.  And Ole Miss is perfect for him — there’s a 99% chance he’ll never win the division, but on the odd chance he ever does, he’ll be out of Oxford like a shot.  You’d think those people would learn something from the Tuberville experience, but this is all about trolling.

And on that level, it’s close to perfect.  The Laner can bring his little brother back to Ole Miss just as he’s coming off that pesky two-year show cause order he’s under.  The most all in thing Kiffin can do, though, would be to try to hire Art Briles.  (Don’t shake your head; he hired Kendall at FAU.)  Greg Sankey’s already got a mild case of heartburn this morning.  Might as well see if you can give him something bigger, Junior.

In the meantime, it’s gonna be a fun offseason.  Ole Miss, we who are about to snark salute thee.

    IT’S A TRAP!

    will the Laner be the Luke Skywalker of the SEC West to Lord Saban’s Darth Vader? Could Monte Kiffin be Yoda?

    This has entertainment potential.

    To the extent talent is drawn away from the legit sec west teams, this is a good move for us.

    A lot of these programs fire their guy only to find out the problem is the program.

    Is Kiffykins an upgrade from Luke?

    Ahh, the Kiffin Kancer, back in the SEC.

    I think the grandparents from Arkansas are about to show up with another round of presents! The Razorbacks best move might be to rehire Chad Morris.

    Doesn’t he have a game TODAY?
    And then he’ll be in Oxford tomorrow?
    What a jackass

    Well, there goes our chance of getting him to overhaul our offense! Bottle rockets are fun at first but they don’t last very long and sometimes pop right in your face. In the end, all you got to show for your $20 is a sooty coke bottle that smells like a fart. Good luck, Ole Miss!

    Can’t believe Arkansas fired first but still no hire. I saw some of their former players want Pittman. I sure hope we don’t lose him.

    Lane gets back in a major conference, and Ole Miss gets a splashy hire who will make them vaguely interesting as they’re finishing in fifth place in the SEC West. Even if this marriage crashes and burns — and it almost certainly will — I can’t think of a more perfect pairing.

      Exactly. Entertainment factor is high here. He won’t win much, but hopefully he saps some talent and energy from the better programs.

    I can’t wait until he starts taking shots at Saban!


  11. RC

    Him recruiting against his old recruiting coordinator Orgeron? Can’t wait.

    But they clearly didn’t learn anything from the Hugh Freeze experience.

    Cool…..should be good for the SECW – : > ). Can see Ole Miss and Bama now fighting over blue chip players. Probably will send Saban right over the edge, hopefully into retirement.

    Good hire for Ole Miss, dude can recruit….I would think he has improved over the years as a HC.

    Joey Freshwater in Oxford. Twitter lore is about to be epic!

    It’s really not nice of the higher-ups to put so much heat on the magnolia state’s bagmen so close to christmas.

    They’re gonna get talent. Because they’re gonna cheat their asses off. If there was ever a second SMU, this could come close. But it will be popcorn worthy until it blows up, and for that i thank Ole Miss.


  15. lakedawg

    Wow, all them pretty Ole Miss co-Ed’s and Laner on same campus.


    • Doug

      That was my thought too. No worries about Kiffin getting tied up with a bunch of escorts; if his track record is any indication, he’ll just be knee-deep in free coed tail before you can blink.

    Interesting. I thought he was perfect for FSU, and I’d love him torturing Side Show Dan every year.


    • Normaltown Mike

      Agree. FSU is such a better situation for success.

      But I love the idea of him needling a tired and cranky Saban in his final few seasons. Sure, it will be a tall order for Ole Miss to beat a Saban team, but those two teams locked in 48-45 shoot-outs is gonna be hilarious

    Why the vitriol against Kendal briles?


  18. PerryDawg

    WTF Ole Miss? Was Bobby Petrino not returning your calls or something? Jesus!!!
