Crazy Internet Rumor of the Day: Lane Kiffin resigning at Alabama and it’s juicy

All eyes are on Tuscaloosa today as the college football world awaits confirmation of some very juicy rumors surrounding Lane Kiffin and Nick Saban. Kiffin is expected to resign from his position as the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator, and the reason behind the move is (allegedly) one of three bizarre but completely believable stories:

  1. Kiffin slept with a booster’s wife
  2. Kiffin got in a fist fight with Saban
  3. Kiffin slept with Saban’s daughter

I have no idea if any of this is true, but it’s all the talk on the Twitter.com and other parts of the internet today. Stories 2 and 3 go hand in hand, so is there any way that’s real?

All eyes on Tuscaloosa.

    I guess it’s implausible that he’s resigning because his Alabama offenses have been lackluster?

    Or maybe because the Tide lost… early.. and badly… at home….. to Ole Miss…. two years in a row. either way or all the ways – Kiffin is an entitled jerk who has gone far on his father’s coattails and a pretty face. He is the definition of over-rated.

    I hate some of you so called Kentucky fans. Shannon Dawson has coached 3 games and is 2-1 but yet you are bitching. He had a top 10 offense at WVU that he had to build and now that he’s here, it’s his first season and most of his offensive guys are young. So in aother words SHUT THE F***K UP!!! I’m so sick of the bitching from some of you this early into the season. Be happy Florida didnt kick our asses and that we have a young team that is getting better and get behind them. If you cant do that, then do yourself a favor and stop watching the games, stop being a fan, and stop commenting!

      There are some fans bitching, but seriously most of the people are trolls. And I’m not just saying that bc “anyone who says anything negative is labeled a troll.” I’m saying it bc they use the same stupid names they use to troll on football and basketball posts. They trollin hard bc their team is 0-3. They scared.

      Stop being such a drama queen. Besdes that wasn’t his offense in WVU, he wasn’t even allowed to call plays. It helps to know your coach if you are gonna cry.

      2:17 pm September 24, 2015 Permalink

      So basically WVU paid him to do nothing? I love all the comments saying he didn’t do anything at WVU. Yeah…uh…so they just paid him to sit there. Perhaps he didn’t call plays but I’m pretty sure they weren’t paying him to sit there and look good. Let’s hear how well you know him. What did he do at WVU to earn a paycheck?

      It wasn’t asked what he did. Comment said he had a top 10 offense. It wasn’t his, it was Holgorsen’s. Everyone knows that. Well thought everyone did anyway. Learn to read trollin

      I can read just fine, troll. You said “It helps to know your coach if you are gonna cry.” So if you know him, you should know what he did. Otherwise, you’re speaking out of your trolling ass.

      And way to out yourself, card man. First you signed in as Shannon, now card man. Trollin is a habit. Shouldn’t you be worried about your 0-3 team instead of here worried about UK?

      Read this, card man:

      “Shannon Dawson, who helped build some of the nation’s most prolific offenses at West Virginia, has joined the Kentucky staff as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

      WVU went 10-3 and was co-champion of the Big East Conference, one of five league title teams Dawson has helped coach during his career.

      Dawson’s role expanded to offensive coordinator in 2012 as the Mountaineers rated top-10 nationally in scoring offense (39.5 points per game), total offense (502 yards per game) and passing (330.1 yards per game).

      Dawson coached the receiving duo of Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey, who each earned All-America recognition and combined to tie or break 26 school records.

      In addition to his coordinator responsibilities, Dawson coached the quarterbacks in 2013-14 and WVU threw for more than 3,000 yards each season.

      Dawson moved to Stephen F. Austin University as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2008-10. Coming off a winless season and only 16 points per game in 2007, Dawson orchestrated an amazing turnaround in SFA’s offensive fortunes. In his first season, the Lumberjacks ranked third in the nation in passing offense, 13th in total offense and 14th in scoring offense.

      In 2009 and ‘10, SFA led the nation in passing offense while ranking in the top six nationally in total offense and scoring.”

      Didn’t out myself at all. That wasn’t my post earlier, I usually don’t post on here, the clueless BBN during football is a joke. You actually think football will rise at UK. So basically what you have there is a first time head coach, first time OC, first time DC, and you think you can run in the SEC. That’s the funny of it all, the BBN thinking they have something. I’m no Kiffin fan but I assure you he would run circles against your first time OC and Head coach. Although I’m not sure he could do anything with that hippie you have at QB that actually thinks he’s a D1 QB, he should be in the OVC even if that. Good luck to your below average season. As for Dawson, he was in WVU to help QB’s, Holgorsen ran that offense.



    • Card man
      2:59 pm September 24, 2015 Permalink

      Adorable, that’s good that you can copy and paste, but what you don’t see there is that Dana Holgorsen didn’t trust him enough to let him even call plays. But it is the BBN I’m talking to, that actually thinks football will be good enough to compete in the SEC. Congrats on beating a USC team that could barely beat a good high school team. Enjoy your 5 game losing streak coming up. LOL

      “You actually think football will rise at UK.”

      LOL, laughable. If a tier-2 commuter school like Louisville can have some minor success (albeit all the while in Division II conferences), the University of Kentucky most certainly can.

      This dude talks a lot of shit for a fan of a team who has lost its last 4, including a blowout to an SEC team, and a loss to Houston. You still hanging on to that Auburn “moral victory”? LOLOL

      Card man, your team is 0-3. 0-3 0-3 0-3. Again, worry about your team. You call us clueless but here you are on our site, talking about us while we are 2-1 and you all are 0-3. Fact: Our record has improved every year with Stoops, your record has declined since Petrino returned. I guess that road rash scraped off his ability to coach. Talk about our “hippie” Qb, but Louisville doesn’t even have a Qb. they have 3 Qbs that all suck and haven’t won a game this year. Go to Card Chronicle and maybe find some people who like you.

      It’s funny that Dana Holgorsen was the OC prior to being named head coach. Makes sense that he should be capable of calling plays. Its even funnier that a great OC –>HC (Holgorsen) thought enough of Dawson to hire him as HIS OC…..

      Once again, read the copy and past that impressed you so much. Especially the last couple of paragraphs*.

      Yeah, I’m sure Holgorsen hated having that guy on his staff, who he hired himself.

      0-3, bitch. Point blank, period.

      No, no she’s not. The hot one you see when you google her is not actually her. Check out her wedding photos (there are tons of them with her and Nick dancing and such) and you’ll see she’s DEFINITELY not worth losing your ridiculously good job over. Not even close. She’s maybe a 6.5.

      Towles’ Man Bun is correct. You’re probably referring to Sara Jean Underwood, who for some reason pops up when you search for “Nick Saban Daughter”. His real daughter couldn’t wipe the toe jam from Underwood’s size 4 Nike trainers.

    HahHa ya because you just stumble upon your opposing teams website. To then scroll down, and click comment.. Read through comments then comment back.

    But all you all can shove off about Shannon Dawson. He is our dude support him. He is not going anywhere. He is 2-1 not 0-3 we are Kentucky not Bama. And if we don’t quite this gripping about 2-1 to a team we have beat in 29 years! then three couches won’t be here for long once other schools come hiring

    FALSE ALARM. Move along, nothing to see here, people. Alabama has confirmed rumors were completely untrue and without any connection to actual events. Lane Kiffin is still “obviously” employed at Alabama, per their Communications Director.

    Sounds like Tennessee or Auburn fans were a little bored today. As much as I enjoy a dumpster fire, it’s really sad that national media picks up on a Twitter rumor and runs with it…
