It's Landshark Lane

It looks like Lane Kiffin will be the next Head Football Coach at Ole Miss.  Neal McReady tweeted last night:


Multiple sources telling me tonight Lane Kiffin to Ole Miss is as close to a done deal without being official as is possible. At this point, I expect an announcement Sunday.

This gonna be fun.

I’d love to know what dirt Lane has on somebody, to keep getting these repeated chances at coaching Division I and NFL teams.

Oh my....what will Satan I mean SABAN think?

No dirt. In actuality the guy has been a successful coach at every stop except the Raiders which was a disaster to start and he was only 31. Took a Tennessee program that was baron and went 7-6. Took his dream job at USC (who was tainted with ncaa sanctions from previous regime btw) & I believe had around .700 win %. J.g ad a lot of responsibility for Alabamas success when he was there and has completely turned around an FAU school that wasn't even on the map.
I will say I think it's a crap shoot hire (like most) but one worth taking. I certainly dont blame Keith for pulling the trigger. It's a big time hire

The new AD at Ole Miss will be the old AD at Ole Miss before long. This isn’t a bad decision, it’s just plain dumb. Ole Miss just doesn’t do well hiring people who know how to hire people. This school is in desperate need of competent leadership.

Anyone warned the Co-Ed’s ?

I think Ole Miss will regret this decision in every way. In terms of ability to win and in terms of how he will lead and represent the university.

You would think a school that tears down statues, changes bldg names, can,t find a mascot, is losing enrollment numbers, is being dictated by a few wealthy alumni (at least one who is a convicted felon) would look at the character issue when hiring another coach with a history of sexual misconduct.

Should be good for the ABC stores around the Square. The Lane Train seems to move quickly through all its stops (FL Atlantic being the longest at 3 years) with apparently a connection to the heavy brew that seems to be popular in the Oxford area.

The Plantation U Confederates = The gift that keeps on giving. What's the over and under as to when the NCAA moves in to Oxford Town?

I don't follow college football that much, but I've never heard anything but negatives about this guy. On a related issue, does he still have that super-hot wife? If he does, maybe the OM higher-ups think that'd be reason enough to hire him! Maybe he wouldn't pull a Freeze and go looking for a super-hot wife.....

The last 10 days have been as UMiss as they could possibly be. First, lose the Egg Bowl in the most UMiss of ways. Next, fire the most loyal coach you could possibly have just a few days after praising him. Then, go hire the most self-centered, immature coach in D-1 football (which is saying a lot) to come and lift your program back to mediocrity. The school and the coach deserve each other. He won’t be there in 3 years (although the NCAA will), but it’ll be fun to watch the meltdown. You only thought it was a dumpster fire before!

I'd much rather have Freeze back

Enrollment down, contributions, attendance down and go hire a bone head like Kiffin! What on earth is going on at UM. Nuff said!

Coach Kiffin is a great hire for Ole Miss. For him to turn the football program around, they will need to give him time and leave him alone and let him call all the shots. Kiffin matured big time working for Coach Saban, and he's way better than the Mike Shula knock off Ole Miss just fired.

But sorry, he's now divorced from his white hot wife, Layla.

This skit about Kiffin back when Alabama hired him is one of the funniest I have seen.

2 absolute certainties about LK.....he is a great recruiter and he will be an upgrade as a coach over Matt Luke.

We don't need Neal Mcready (whoever the hell that is) to announce this. It was out of of the bag Friday at 9:40 a.m.

Kiffin will either step up and do very well at ole miss, or it will be a 110% dumpster fire and burn the place down to the ground. One or the other and nothing in between.

Oxford babes are much hotter than any in Arkansas... ;))

he is either:

1-going to win and leave for an even bigger school

2-lose and be fired


three years at most..

Anonymous said...

3:40 "contributions & attendance down"
Your argument is exactly why they hired him. Had to stop the bleeding and this is a hire that's going to do that

Anonymous said...

Take a school who is ashamed of it's history, it's founding, it's flag, school song, and mascot and marry them to a coach who has much to be ashamed of but is never ashamed of anything. He would have been a great fit for them in 1962. This will either be a train wreck or great. But if it's great he won't stay.

I am watching coach o, another person the majority of rebels thought wasn’t a good hire, win the sec. you have to have patience of five years for any hire and recognize that African American athletes will think twice before coming to a university that celebrates the civil war

Great coach and great hire

MSU fan here.

OM will pound MSU next year. But OM will be a soap opera. Kiffin is a great recruiter and coach. 4:25 is right. Kiffin will either succeed and leave or the soap opera will get him fired. But Kiffin will coach hammer Morehead.

Don't understand why they could not find an innovator like Slo Mo at Leg Humper U.

No one was talking about mascots and other meaningless tripe when Ole Miss won the Sugar Bowl. Only leg-humpers and dumb provincials talk about it now. The team gets and new coach and the deservedly forgotten man gets mad that he may lose the spotlight. Go cry in your Golden Corral spare ribs.

6:01 another small-minded who attempts to interpret others: "...a university that 'celebrates' the civil war."

No, quit replacing "honor" the civil war with "celebrate" the civil war... and you should understand.

The analysis is astounding. "It'll either be huge success and he'll leave or a dumpster fire". Well no s#$t sherlock's. Isn't that the case with any big time college football hire? Anything in between wouldn't suffice anyway. If hes huge success and leaves he leaves program in better place. If its dumpster fire he leaves program by being fired and program goes back to drawing board. If hes anywhere in between he leaves and program moves on. Pretty standard stuff in coaching cycle. Come to think of pretty standard stuff in executive world regardless of business

I am a State fan and think it’s a great hire. He can begin the turnaround that ole miss needs. That said he won’t be a long term hire 3 to 4 years but he will leave it in much better shape. I wish state would have done something this smart.

“Slo Mo” Now that is priceless!

How many Ole Miss alums does it take to change a light bulb? Answer-100; 1 to change it and 99 to reminisce about it. So keep on talking about that national championship....

Freshwater has people talking. Lots of people.

When Jomo was hired, King could only scrape up 2 comments.

No one cared.

The state fans are just so sad they have another four years with JOMO

Simply an immature hire of an immature individual.....apparently there are no adults in charge on the Oxford plantation. The choice is a complete marketing ploy to radically redirect the narrative away from how utterly embarrassing that school has become. The school is lost and unhinged academically, and its football program has become quite literally cartoonish.

Ole Miss’ 27th Rhodes Scholar was announced just recently. @8:15, if you went to college, how many has your school had?

Anonymous said...

8:15 You are absolutely correct. They should have hired someone with the maturity to face the media after a game won only based on a stupid, immature act resulting in a penalty and then act as if you had just coached a masterpiece for a national championship while stating you aren't here for the fans. Yup, even ol' Slo Mo can be a bit excitable from time to time.

Hilarious!!!

State fans think they are all that. The Egg Bowl was two(2) sorry football teams playing each other and the one that won was just a smidgen less sorry than the other team that won by 1 point. That's too, too rich for most that know anything about football.

The bottom-line is that Ole Miss is at least trying to right their ship while MSU is simply putting off the inevitable firing of a coach that doesn't understand the SEC and even if he did, he doesn't have the knowledge to advance the team any higher than they are now. As to the "10 straight bowl" braggadocio, that string was helped by a loser of a bowl game based upon academic achievement and when they won the bowl they STILL had a losing season of 6-7. Man, you just can't make this stuff up!!!

Yes, two (2) sorry teams in the SEC West, but only one (1) will see a change in daylight come 2020. When will the other one in Starkville right their ship. Not for at least another year.

The SEC West is still the best and LSU has supplanted the big Red Elephant to a mere pachyderm! :D

Anonymous said...

I'm with Slo Mo. We are guaranteed at least 6-6 next year with dynamic offense. Maybe PSU has another backup QB that can come in and give us hope.

Anonymous said...

3:03, congrats on all of the moral victories in your post.

I want Ole Miss fans to remember two things:

1) how much they despised Mullen for trash talk, then watch how they embrace Kiffin's trash talk

2) how they discredit the Egg Bowl like its nothing when they lost, yet tout their victories in the years they win. Its been like this for ages. When they lose it's all "the eggbowl is meaningless(yea because Ole Miss is destined for an SEC victory or NC)" or "LSU is our real rival(well, for everyone but LSU)"

Baaaaaaaaaaaaa. You need to be sheared.

10 bowls in a row is much better than not going to one 4 years running. Congrats on your hire. I'm sure the network is fired up and ready to start buying croots once again.

11:19...get back to me when you guys make a "real bowl" like a Sugary one in the month of January...ohhh, and actually win it should you get there!!! HAGHAHAHA!!!!

Anonymous said...

@3:03, per the lane trane’s new contract terms, your team would have been paying between $50,000 and $1000,000 to your head coach for any and all of the “10 straight bowl game braggadocio”. So apparently people at ole miss do value attending lower tier bowls unlike their fans who seem to know more about football and administration than the ones writing contracts and signing/cashing checks.

I just hope he does not regret the move.

hey 12:51...we aren't into piss-anty bowls like the Musy Cickle one you bottom-dwellers just got. Your team at msu is a lousy one and just a little better than the egg bowl team you beat (HA! by 1 point no less!!!).

Come back braggin' after you get a few Sugar Bowl wins under your belt...hell, that'll NEVER be in my or your lifetimes so DREAM ON, Stump-Pumper!!! :D

All the daddies in the celebration column better be figuring out a way to lock up their baby girls. Or maybe they figure it'll be a celebratory sacrifice.

How about a baseball coach that wasn't retained???

I'd worry more about the bell-ringing daughters on my own campus if I were you...I'm guessing you have some coaches doing some "real bell-ringing" on coeds on your own campus and if not...well, stumps are readily available all over that pasture you call starksville. :D

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
