I think Alabama is going to greatly regret hiring Kiffin as OC, unless they have an aesthetic fetish for the bubble screen—which is the only play Kiffin knows how to call.
He's most successful when he's not allowed to mess up or do any other Lane Kiffiny stuff.
Some NFL players around Kiffin's age are still playing (Peyton Manning is ten months younger than Kiffin) but this is his fifth high-profile coaching job. He hasn't done much at all in the last three, and I'm not sure how much credit he deserves for his time on Pete Carroll's staff. Recruiting skills and interview-ability can get you far.
People must really love and respect Monte Kiffin.
Under Kiffin and Sarkisian in 2005 the USC offense produced numerous school records, averaging 49.1 points and 579 yards per game and becoming the first in NCAA history to have a 3,000 yard passer (Matt Leinart), two 1,000 yard rushers (Reggie Bush and LenDale White), and a 1,000 yard receiver (Dwayne Jarrett). Steve Smith fell a few yards of also surpassing 1,000 yards in receiving. In Kiffin’s three years as recruiting coordinator at USC, the Trojans had the No. 1 ranked recruiting class in college football every year. The Trojans finished first in the Pac-10 in passing efficiency by averaging 142.8 passer rating, produced two, 1,000-yard receivers – Dwayne Jarrett (1,105) and Steve Smith (1,083) – and a 3,000-yard passer John David Booty, with 3,347 yards. The team produced top 20 statistics in most NCAA offensive categories and concluded with a 32–18 win over the then #3 ranked team the University of Michigan in the Rose Bowl. Kiffin helped guide USC to a 23–3 win-loss record during his tenure as offensive coordinator, an 88% win percentage
Nick Saban builds great defenses and wins a lot of football games,
that is a heck of a resume
I don't think anyone has given serious thought to how absurd it is to ask fans to possibly travel to three straight neutral site games located coast to coast on six days notice. College football has unmatched atmosphere in American sports, this system is certain to rip the soul of the sport out of its biggest games.

It's kind of hard to say UF underperformed on the recruiting trail this year, no?
Alston's basic theory is that the NCAA and its member institutions, along with the five major conferences, have unlawfully conspired to save money at the expense of Division I football players. This comes in the form of athletic scholarships (grants-in-aid), which are capped to include the cost of tuition, room and board, books and fees and, until recently, were only guaranteed for one year. Alston charges that these limitations make athletic scholarships several thousand dollars lower in value than the actual cost of attending college and are substantially less valuable than if there were a free market. The NCAA, according to Alston, has "cloaked its actions in government-terminology, such as 'constitution' ... and 'infraction'" to lawmakers into accepting this system as fair.
