re: Lane Kiffin - jakesnake66
"I haven't seen this posted but this is the first time he's has a good offer as far as I know. Corral is leaving. Considering his history, I would not be surprised if he leaves." New here? After I posted that Durkin should be fired, I expressed that EXACT sentiment and got blistered for a 2nd tim...

"The people that keep saying “we aren’t a national championship program” or “we can’t expect to be Bama or LSU” are the fricking problem with this god forsaken fanbase. If you truly believe either one of those things and don’t believe those are attainable, you can frick right off because you’re a me...

"Something we all need to do is stop focusing on when he’s going to leave. ---------------- Agreed." I'm not trying to jump the gun, put out bad energy or anything like that. I simply was asking for what I got: counter-points to some of the arguments put forth by others regarding why Kiffin mig...

re: Will Kiffin leave? - jakesnake66
"...posts like this make us look bad...." Why? This is an Ole Miss football discussion forum. I opened by expressing my doubts about posting this topic, but I don't see why any legitimate football topic would be off limits. I get the feeling I may have read more internet scuttlebutt than others. ...

Will Kiffin leave? - jakesnake66
I almost hate to start this topic, but I REALLY want some feedback from people who are closer to the situation. I'm sure most of you have seen the lists of possible candidates for the LSU and USC head coaching jobs, so no doubt you've seen - as I have - that Lane Kiffin is mentioned in every one of ...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
Ok, I'm the guy who started this thread. Some say it "didn't age well." Fair enough. I'm not one of those guys who always has to be right, and I pride myself on admitting when I'm wrong. I'm not a big contributor here. My goal is to ask people to think, which always results in ME thinking. I've been...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
First, I'd like to say CONGRATS to Durkin, Partridge, and all the defensive coaches and players for that incredible performance Sat night. They held a SUPER HOT offense to under 30 pts in the most hostile environment they will ever play in. As much as I'm a Durkin critic, I have no problem giving cr...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
"Probably not. You're relying upon pure stats. I bet the gap in talent between our defense and teams we face in our conference is likely larger than just about anyone else." THIS is the key question, IMO. As I stated in a previous post, I'm aware of this issue. Purdue, AZ state, and Air Force def...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
"So yeah... defensive talent on the team is very bad when 1/2 of that side are starting as 1st yr transfers and two of the rest are converted offensive players." I'm not denying any of this. However, I still don't believe OM's talent is worse than 100 other FBS teams. [as of today the OM D is ran...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
We can discuss defensive particulars forever. I'm of the belief that neither I nor anyone on this board possesses even a small percentage of football knowledge of men who coach at the highest levels. IMO there is absolutely nothing any of us could tell Kiffin or Durkin that they don't already know a...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
"We just beat the #13 team in the nation. Maybe take at least a day to enjoy it before you start bitching. Geez." I REALLY understand and appreciate this POV. I really do. I don't mean to pee on the parade. BUT...Rebel fans seem to celebrate ANY victory, no matter what it took and how small the m...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
"Where’s Tywone Malone? Where’s Demon Clowney? Where’s Iton? The talent is there. This." I totally agree. But at the same time I DO NOT believe it to be a "talent" issue. They have more talent this year than last year, yet their weaknesses are EXACTLY the same! No containment...pathetic tackli...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
Oh...man...what a depressing performance. But I was very encouraged by Lane's comments right after the game. He mentioned "as bad as a defense can play," and he waved off any suggestion that the defense had "stopped" Arkansas. Kiffin acknowledged that it wasn't a "stop" as much as it was poor execut...

"We stuck our necks out to hire him after the mess at Maryland, and it clearly has not worked out. No there’s not a lot of talent to work with, but his defenses have consistently played to (or below) that talent level. We need someone who can get our defense to punch above its weight" THIS is pre...

re: Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
Everyone is focusing on the passing D. Does no one see the QBs and RBs running through the Rebel D like it's made of paper? The damage isn't being done in the air; it's on the ground. MASSIVE holes everywhere. Almost ZERO outside containment at all. This isn't about how much time the QB has to throw...

Time for Durkin to go - jakesnake66
Are there ANY Durkin supporters here? If so, please state your case for a DC who coached a Div I defense to 124th out of 125 teams, and then implied it was his talent. Really? The Rebels had lesser talent than 123 other FBS teams. That's a bit hard to believe. Now this year he has better talent yet ...

Whoever ends up following Corral will be a grave disappointment. I'm guessing optimism isn't your strong suit. LOL. ...

re: Altmyer - Dent? - jakesnake66
Thanks. So I'm assuming confidence in Dent is pretty low? I've watched all his HS highlight vids and seen his HS stats. Other than his relatively low completion % he was pretty impressive. He looks slow, but 6'5" QBs often do. He ran well, gained a lot of yards. Strong arm. There's no way to pred...

Altmyer - Dent? - jakesnake66
Not much to go on in judging the quality of the backups, but does anyone have a sense for the level of optimism (or not) about these guys? One over the other? Also, I'm sure this has been discussed before, but does anyone know why Altmyer didn't seriously consider State, given he's a Starkville ...

re: Where is Momo? - jakesnake66
Thanks. That's the only conclusion I could come to, on he indeed was listed as #2 behind Campbell. And certainly after his freshman year Momo perhaps hasn't quite lived up to his potential, but given his ability it seems really unfortunate that they can't find a place for him. ...
