A humble Lane Kiffin is not the Lane Kiffin America needs.

I mean, shit, where’s the fun in this?

He also thanked Alabama coach Nick Saban for giving him a chance when no one else would.

“I’m very grateful to Coach Saban,” Kiffin told reporters. “My phone was not ringing very much at the time after USC, and that was a very humbling experience after being let go there and to go through that process. You start calling a lot of people that don’t call you back all of a sudden, and you realize things about people.”

He also said, contrary to reports that suggest otherwise, he has a “great relationship” with Saban.

“As he says, I get my ass-chewings from time to time. I’ve learned to accept those. It’s been a great run,” Kiffin said.

Boe.  Ring.

I hope a few wins gets Junior’s head out of his humble ass, ’cause that ain’t gonna cut it.

    “[A]nd you realize things about people.” But not yourself?

    Something stinks about all this. First he’s the best offensive coach Orgeron couldn’t get, next he’s the choice du jour of Houston and he ends up at FAU? It’s not even like FAU threw hugh amounts of money at him, either. His time in TTown was over, clearly. In the end, this was his best option? That should be humbling enough.

    I’m not so sure Senator…”You start calling a lot of people that don’t call you back all of a sudden, and you realize things about people.” Translation: “Yo there’s something wrong with those people, who wouldn’t want me??” It’s subtle but it’s there.

      Someone saw the value of calling him. Because I thought it would be a disaster, I have to give credit to saban on this one and I think it shows that those who weren’t calling, might well should have. He’s a dick and he made one of the worst calls in a big game ever, but for the most part he did what he was supposed to: generate points vs. the few teams that could exploit that defense. Not sure Alabama beats Clemson with the offensive coordinators that preceded Lane at Alabama.

      • Lendale White up the guy on 4th and short with the national title on the line? without even having Reggie Bush on the field? Is that the call you mean?

          No. The call I mean was vs. OSU. Alabama was behind but had grabbed the momentum with about 10 to play. After scoring they forced an ugly three and out. OSU punted and it spun back to about the OSU 23. On first and ten, lane had Blake sims try to hit OJ Howard in the end zone. The FS easily undercut the route, picked it off and alabama was basically done. One of the worst big game, big moment offensive calls I’ve ever seen.

          The one vs. Texas was a play that had worked all day. Bush wasn’t the guy they gave it to in short yardage. That was White. I would’ve punted so that’s on Carroll not Lane.

    Isn’t Steve Sarkesian on the Bama staff now? Its all a process, don’t cha know? Say what you want about Kiffin’s personality, the guy can run an offense. A Lane Kiffin with a measure of humility is a dangerous man.
