Today, in swinging dicks

Really, the shit Nick Saban has time for surprises me sometimes.

To paraphrase The Princess Bride,  Nick, you fell victim to one of the classic blunders, the most famous of which is “never get involved in a land war in Asia,” but only slightly less well-known is this: “Never get in a pissing match with Lane Kiffin”.

“I’m not really big on humiliating assistant coaches in front of everybody.”

We’ll always have the Laner and his smart mouth.

Is Junior smarter than Kirby?

The Laner discusses his decision to leave Alabama before the national title game to take the head coaching job at Florida Atlantic and notes what he observed from Smart’s departure from that program the year before.

“It was a difficult situation and timing,” Kiffin explained. “I saw it. I saw it the year before with (now Georgia head coach and former Alabama defensive coordinator) Kirby Smart taking another job. There is so much to do. You’re trying to coach. You’re trying to recruit. You’re trying to prepare as a coordinator as well. It was difficult trying to manage everything.

Did Kirby’s decision to keep one foot in both camps negatively impact his first season as Georgia’s head coach?  We’ll never know, of course.  But Kiffin suggests it didn’t help.

It’s Junior’s world, and Florida Atlantic is just living in it.

Sure, I doubt this lawsuit has any legs, but the notion that any athletic director would hire Lane Kiffin and expect a normal college football program environment as a consequence baffles me.

“I think a lot of people think of him as this buffoon figure.”

And, so, friends, it’s come to this:  Mitch Mustain is asked to explain Lane Kiffin.

Ladies man

Junior appears to be adapting quite well to life in Boca Raton.

Maybe they were discussing signing day.
