Today, in Nick Saban doesn’t have time for…

… that shit… er, Lane Kiffin.

Saban wouldn’t elaborate on further questioning about the situation. Kiffin said on ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” that the “press box would be ideal” when asked whether he would be on the sideline for the game against Clemson. Saban, however, dismissed that notion.

“That’s really not even possible from a legal standpoint for him to do those things,” Saban said. “So that’s not something we’re interested in pursuing.”

“Legal standpoint”?

Shouldn’t give people ideas, Coach.  What are the odds that some Alabama fanatic is out there right now scrambling to get a motion filed asking a court to issue an injunction against Junior attending the national title game?

Personally, I think the Laner would make an excellent addition to ESPN’s pre-game show.

    Clearly, the non-compete clause…LOL

    So, Kiffin can’t accept a gig to talk about the game on TV during the game? That seems… bizarre.


  3. Play in dirt, you get dirty.

    Or the “Green Room” telecast on the SEC Channel. Lort knows those guys can use the help.


  5. The Nelson Puppet

    I predict Lane Kiffin’s last two jobs will be:

    Head Football Coach, Berry College
    Offensive Coordinator, The Lovett School


  6. Apparently, Junior threw Kirby under the bus this weekend for staying through the championship game last year to rationalize his early departure for Boca. What a d-bag …


  7. I’ll be glad when the Kiffin talk dies off. I’m still trying to get over hearing about Harbaugh’s every thought and every bowel movement. You’d think either of these guys had produced championships or something.

    Not legal? That sounds like total malarky. If Sark could serve that role for Kiffin”legally” why wouldn’t Kiffikins not be able to do it for Sark? Saban just doesn’t want him around at all anymore



    What is the obsession that everyone seems to have with Kiffin? And seriously, how could it be a problem? They have only won 26 games straight with him calling plays. I doubt that is repeated.

    No doubt Kiffin is not only history at Tennessee and Bama, but he is history in the SEC.
    Well, maybe not.
    Do not be surprised if he shows up at Texas A&M after 2017.
    A “traveler”.

    If he can be found I would love to hear Gary Danielson’s take on this Kiffin drama. He had some kind of a man-crush on the guy.


  12. Normaltown Mike

    Kiffin knows QUITE a bit about “Barely Legal”. Fine publication.

    I’m sure his Kiffen rant (if/when it happens) will be added to the “Greatest Hits” one day.

    Legal standpoint, does that mean Lane and Saban got it a verbal altercation and Pruitt punched Lane and now has a restraining order? Happened last year in Richt’s kitchen if you believe the rumors, why not in Bamaland.
