Would the last national title game have turned out differently had Junior been manning the Alabama sideline? You bet. Just ask him.
It is one thing for Kiffin to feel his absence cost Alabama in that moment. What about now, eight months removed? If Saban hadn’t removed him, does he think Alabama would have won?
“I do,” Kiffin said. “It’s no disrespect to Steve. No matter who it was, you’ve been there all year long. You’ve been there for the quarterback. You’re all he knew. You were undefeated together. We’ve won  straight games together. You feel like, okay, it’s different. As great as Sark is, it’s just different. Again, if it had been 14 points either way . . . when it’s one play here or there, you think if those guys had the person they were used to, it would have made a difference.”
Lane Kiffin is the Donald Trump of college football.
You only get one guess as to which current head coach the comment in the header refers.
Of course Junior’s consulting with Art Briles. Why would you expect otherwise?
You think your school’s had an eventful offseason? Brother, check out Florida Atlantic’s.
Can the Laner hold it all together? If not, the flame out ought to be spectacular.
Really, what more needs to be said about this:
Lane Kiffin has offered a scholarship to the son of quarterback coach Steve Clarkson, according to Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports.
Pierce Clarkson is a quarterback in the Class of 2023, who just finished sixth grade.
Actually, the author of the piece makes a pretty good funny.
A future quarterback battle may already be brewing as Kiffin made a verbal offer to Kaden Martin, the son of USC offensive coordinator Tee Martin, for a spot in 2022 recruiting class.
Odds on either of these two playing a down at FAU? Yeah, that’s what I think, too.
And it looks like everyone’s invited.
Florida Atlantic coach Lane Kiffin will host coaches from Tennessee, his former employer, as well as Michigan‘s Jim Harbaugh and others at the school’s camp for high school players next month.
Coaches from five Power 5 programs — Tennessee, Michigan, Arkansas, Illinois and Vanderbilt — will work at Florida Atlantic’s camp June 5 in Boca Raton, Florida. Harbaugh and Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema will be there with their staffs, and other head coaches like Illinois’ Lovie Smith could join…
Several other coaching staffs could join the camp, including Alabama, where Kiffin served as offensive coordinator for the past three seasons before departing before the national championship game in January. Other potential additions include LSU, Georgia, Michigan State and Iowa.
Gettin’ mighty crowded…
