    It's like @ShAArk92 and me constantly running airplanes off runways or taxiways and not only keeping our jobs but actually being promoted.

    "You ran planes off runways at Frontier? Great! We'll hire you."

    Is it fair/accurate to consider college coaching jobs as government employment?

    Sorry, Joe, but no one can match the federal government for incompetence, wasting money, and under productivity.

    “People who work for the federal government, work for it for a reason NO ONE else will hire them. They can’t get a really job’”

    Coaching is the finest example of the “Peter Principle”

    Great point. Which brings up my “Reverse Peter Principal” philosophy, which contends that some coaches never reach their job of maximum competence because they were not highly proficient in their former roll.

    With this is mind, i just wonder if Todd Orlando might be a better HC than DC. Frankly, I hope that someone gives him that chance.

    Is it possible to have a “significant” conversation with Kiffin since he can’t spell the word or many others over two syllables?

    Well see, that might be considered as improving airline travel quality....

    Kiffin seems to be a good coach, but he tends to jump ship after a short period of time. I remember when Pat Haden fired him at the airport, then drove off leaving Kiffin without a ride at 3AM. The team bus had already left as well, so he had to call his wife to take him to campus to get all his stuff, so the story goes.

    Hahaha! Imagine if coaches were government employees. Limited to 40 hour work week, no games on any federal or state holiday, no work on weekends so no games on weekends, a high paid chach would be something like a G15 (or what ever) making something like $105K per year. One the other hand, ticket prices might drop some. Nah, fuh-ged-da-bow-dit

    They’d be better off giving Petrino his motorcycle and coed back.

    Kiffin can coach a ballgame (at the college level). It's his off-the-field statements and antics that raise eyebrows.

    If I’m Arkansas I hire Kiffin but write an ironclad contract loaded with behavioral and ethics clauses, and also penalties if he jumps ship early. They have the leverage, not him.

    Duke, I love ya man but Kiffin has all the leverage here. He lives in Boca Raton now. He should pass on Arkie

    You might be right but my take is that Kiffin wants to get back to the big time and success at AR would be a stepping stone to get him there.
