Say what you will about Junior, but he doesn’t quit.

    That is one forced smile on Kirby’s face. In spite of myself I’ve come to sort of get a kick out of Junior the last few years.

      I think that’s a genuine smile on Kirby’s face. I think that they’re friends. They’ve all talked about the “sons of Saban” group text thread that they’ve got, which I seriously would pay real money to get to read. But I’m willing to bet that Kirby learned a lot from facing that Kiffin offense in practice at Alabama and he’s probably kept that relationship going in the years since. It pays off when we play a team like Tennessee or Ohio State that use some similar concepts. And do I think that Lane Kiffin shares his thoughts about Tennessee with any of his buddies who play them? Absolutely I do. lol

      I personally love Lane Kiffin and I’m happy he didn’t take the Auburn job so I would have to start hating his ass. He’s far enough away in the west where I can just enjoy his antics and not worry much about him ruining my day – he’s a puppy who is shitting on someone else’s rug.

    Were they on the same staff at any point with Alabama?


  3. Junior has grown on me. He likes to give Kirby grief in a brother type of way. It seems they actually do like each other and kid around with each other. I guarantee you Kirby wouldn’t give Sun Belt Billy, Hugh Sleeze, or Dumbo that kind of publicity.

      Same here. I want to not like him but he seems like he’d be a fun guy to be around and doesn’t take himself too seriously.

      I can say that I actually like Lane now. I despised him that year in Knoxville, but since his self-deprecating attitude seems genuine. Mind you, I am glad that he isn’t Georgia’s coach. But I think that Lane is good for the SEC and CFB.

    That smile on Kirby’s face bespeaks “I’m nice to this guy, but I need to take a shower after I’ve been around him.”

    On a somewhat related note, there was an old guy sitting behind us at the game, an Ole Miss fan, who has gone to every single SEC Championship game with this 3 sons, and never gotten to see his team play in it…. And most of us thought the wait between 92 and 02 was excruciating!

    Lane looks less like an offensive juggernaut worthy of a SEC, albeit mid tier, bidding war and more like a hotel surfing instructor that also sells weed to high school kids.

    I heard Leach talking about Lane and said he enjoyed being around him. Lane seems like the guy in the group that’s always joking about something and occasionally crosses the line, but everyone just says “oh, that’s Lane.” He doesn’t annoy me like he did.

    Kiffin’s going for that Ernie McCracken look.

    They hate LK in Tennessee and that’s enough to endear him to me.
    Great move when he caught the water bottle and range ball and just joked about it.
    He’s more of an entertainer than a football coach…Spurrier’s wit without the vinegar and the without the wins.
    He’d make a great TV color guy.
    Yeah, he’s doing it all to keep himself in the spotlight, but you can’t blame a guy for promoting himself if he’s not harming anyone. CF is more fun with the Laner around.

    Get a fuckn haircut, Kiffin.
    All y’all saying Joey Freshwater is growing on you probably like that scabby mole growing on your hand that you can pick at until it bleeds.
    The guy is a fuckn douchebag extraordinaire and you’ve been sucked in by his feeble attempts at rehabbing his image.

    • Bingo. Lame probably is jonesing for our OC position thinking it will be one step closer to Saban’s seat. He ducked Auburn to keep that hope alive. In the meantime, he just slipped an Apple AirTag on the KirbyCopter and will grab any recruits we don’t take.

    They are friends. That’s not news.
