If you follow UT Vol football, by now, you know that Lane Kiffin is the newest head coach. As can be expected, there are already plenty of naysayers who say everything from he being too young for a top program like UT, not enough experience, bad with the Raiders, etc...
This to me is akin to saying, "Well, since she has children and is divorced, I won't marry her. I want to marry Miss Perfect!" Well, you will be waiting for a long time then.
Besides, Don Shula was only 33 when he became head coach of the Baltimore Colts. At least that didn't work out too badly. As long as the Raiders are run by Al Davis, they will be a messed up team as will the Arizona Cardinals, Cincinnati Bengals and Detroit Lions. Personally, I think the owners of these teams are senile and blood doesn't flow to their brains either.
So, in a nutshell, give the man a chance before jumping to conclusions.
