In our poll Aranda and Kiffen are neck and neck.

Every USC would be entertaining.  Could you imagine an after game report after kiffin beats down USC?

That may be the only reason I would welcome Kiffikins.

What's the definition of insanity? 

 

Making the same mistake over and over and expecting a different outcome.

 

Bringing Lane Kiffin to Oregon is insanity.

If Aranda is an option, there really isn't a question.

 

I am also curious about the candidates no one is discussing, but I'll wait until the full story comes out. Mullens and those making calls have to be checking on the Altman types out there, and it will be interesting to see who they are also looking at.

 

It would be interesting to see what coach has called, slammed his fist on the table, and said I am your guy! I tend to think this is also what we need. Somebody who calls and says they have wanted this job and have been working towards this opportunity their whole life.

 

The Oregon Football Program is falling apart at the seams right now. We need a coach this time, but we also need somebody who can rally the troops too. We need somebody who can keep the foundation we have and get building quick!

Kiffen's actions make me question his character.  He would split in a moment for a better offer.

Lane Kiffin is so humble he thinks Lane county was named after him.

The rumor mill is saying that when mullens said he has had his phone blowing up that it was kiffin(his agent). I don't know how true that is, and the sources of the rumor are about right only 60% of the time but I do think if he is calling he is worth the listen. 

 

before being hired he would new glowing references from ole miss, FAU, and Saban... 

 

We'd also need to recognize that Kiffin probably isn't the stay and coach till he retires at oregon and will make his jump to the nfl if given a shot... so at best we get four years and we would need to set up a succession plan.

Usc was under heavy sanctions due to Bush scandal, including Bowl ban and scholarships pulled.  He did Tenn dirty. Won a title as OC under Sabin. Killing it at Ole Miss, 8-2 record, second best in SEC west. Elite recruiter. Has connections in so cal and sec country. Still risky but is a much better coach than MC.

Why? He was good enough for Nick Saban to hand him the keys to the Bama O. He completely turned around the FAU program. In his 2nd year at Ole Miss the D has been completely revamped and he has the Rebels headed to the Sugar Bowl at 10-2 and having played one hell of a schedule.

There's something about 'Lane' County that just sounds right.

I'm fine with it. As long as we (Duck Nation) go into with the realization that it is a 3-4 year gig.

 

Oregon would be a stepping stone for Lane.

 

It was not intended to be so for Mario.

OUTSTANDING! If it could happen, but I doubt that it will happen. As noted in a reply above.

 

1 Who did Nick Saban trust and hire to bring the Bama offense into the modern era of CFB?

 

2. Who revitalized and turned around the FAU program?

 

3. In his second season at Ole Miss  playing against a schedule significantly more difficult than Oregon's, who went 10-2 and his team on the way to the Sugar Bowl?

 

4. Who did all of the above, knows and understands the Left Coast and the Pac-12 and can flat out recruit.

 

LANE KIFFIN. I do not believe the Ducks has a realistic shot at landing Kiffin? But if Oregon can do so it must do so! How many Pac-12 programs have the sack to hire a winning NY6 bowl bound coach out of the SEC? TWO. And SC has already hired its guy.

 

Why the concerns? Because he left TN after 1 year for his dream job? Because he was fired mid-season by one of the worst ADs in history? I don't get all of the shade thrown at Kiffin?

The eyes of the college football nation are focused on Oregon and how Mullens/Knight are going to respond to having Cristobal smuggled out. They need a big time hire to show the world that Oregon is up to answering the call and plans to continue being a factor in college football's brave new world where money is no barrier.

 

My spidy senses are telling me that Phil Knight is completely on board with a big, stunning, flashy hire to show these johnny come lately nou-veau rich billionaire boosters of the college football world how the old guard big boys play the game. As I told people who were questioning whether Miami could afford what looks to be close to 30 million dollars to hire Cristobal away, big money to you and me is chump change for these guys.

 

When it comes to big, splashy, sexy, "let's make a statement to the college football world about what our name brand is truly all about" coaching hires, Lane Kiffin is hard to beat. Given that the price seems open ended, I'd rather see Aranda or Campbell, but a Kiffin hire might be the big-time statement Oregon feels like it needs to make for this hire.

When Lane was with Saban did you all notice a turn around in his offensive style and look now how it’s evolved into an absolute wrecking ball. If we can get 3 to 4 years out of him it’s well worth the minor risk. Look at what’s happened to the Ducks since Belotti. Do we think we can keep anybody more than 4 years?  

 

PROBABLY NOT.

I would imagine Kiffin has been looking to get back at sc and the west coast. I have no problem giving him the opportunity to do both.

 

We really should be working on a succession system with this new coach. I suppose our succession system is creating an appealing place to coach, and play, not a bad plan.

My last 2 cents worth on the selection of our new coach. Plan A- If Aranda is available he would be my choice. He is a west coast guy. He would recruit well. He would keep our present recruits. The risk is him moving on within a few years.

 

Plan B. Hire Wilcox with the string that he hire the best offensive coordinator available. Bring Steve Greatwood with him as well as Haywood. He is my personal choice. I think he is another Altman. What he has done with the talent he has is outstanding. He will be at Oregon for a long time. This is very important to me. I want stability. I yearn after the old Oregon values. Winning at all costs is not one of them. If Oregon joins the chase for a natty no matter the costs, I just cannot support that vision. If Uncle Phil is willing to pay what ever it costs to win a natty then I understand his quest, but not for me. 

 

Football has become a slave to money. Paying any amount to win a natty is in my mind insane. I find no joy in watching a game that is built on money. As Jon Joseph has pointed out the SEC, Big12 has and will have, because of the size of their market and the value football in their culture, the most money per school. What will happen to Oregon when Uncle Phil is no longer around with his open check book?

 

I see 2 major conferences in the future. With the exception of USC, I do not see any West Coast school being a member. The Ivy league model for the rest of the PAC 12 would suit me fine.

Why?

Simply because he is another snake, just like slick and Mario. It's more of the same. Personally I would like to get off the carousel.

 

Coaching wise it seems to make sense, but I care more about the program as a whole then just wins and losses. 

 

My belief is that if we do the right thing and invest in Oregonians then things will work themselves out eventually. I actually think we would be really surprised by the success a Wilcox + Musgraves + Sirmon + Heyward + Mcclendon team would have with the roster we have.  Heyward and Mclendon are nationally recognized recruiters.

 

Time to stop chasing rainbows..........it's insane.

You are calling Mario a snake.....

 

Because he left for a job in his home town, at his alma mater, and has a desire to be close to his family, especially his mother who is having serious health issues? Oh, and he'll make $8 million dollars a year!

 

And that makes him a snake?

 

Coaches move on.....

We should do this with any coach
