It turns out that even Junior has a bridge too far.
Category Archives: Don’t Mess With Lane Kiffin
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.
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…
So, Laner, how big was Alabama’s staff when you were there?
… Kiffin was asked about some of the differences between FAU and Alabama, and Kiffin claimed that the support staff at Alabama was so large that he had trouble remembering names.
“I was there three years, and I still didn’t learn everybody’s name in that building,” Kiffin said. “There were so many people. There’s somebody for everything. [Alabama coach Nick Saban] has a very large staff of a lot of people. Obviously, he’s done that so he that he’s got all areas covered and everybody for something.”
I’m not sure if that’s more a reflection of Saban or Kiffin there.
I guess we’ll know the Process has really embedded itself in Athens when McGarity can’t remember the names of all the people he let Kirby hire.
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”.
