Ole Miss Coach Lane Kiffin is worried enough for this week as he prepares to play No. 1 Alabama and seven-time national champion coach Nick Saban in Tuscaloosa, Alabama on Saturday (2:30 p.m. Central, CBS).
But in the meantime, he has taken some shots from Michael Wilbon, co-organizer of “Pardon the Interpretation” and ESPN analyst, who called him a “clown” during the show on Tuesday.

Wilbon was asked by co-host Tony Kornhaiser which scenario would be best for the college football season একটি an Ole Miss or Alabama would win Saturday.
“Because of North Alabama Lane Coffin,” Wilbon fired. “Lane Kiffin is a clown. Lane Kiffin is embarrassed at multiple stops. I mean no one will run there and say, ‘Yes, I want Lane Kiffin here in my representative logo.’ North Alabama, Tony. “
Kiffin, 46, was sacked as head coach of the Oakland Raiders in the 200 season and USC head coach in the 2013 and 2013 seasons. He then became Alabama’s offensive coordinator in 201 Ala. Florida Atlantic was supposed to be the offensive coordinator in Alabama after taking over the coaching job, playing in the 201 national championships, but coach Nick Saban relieved him of his responsibilities due to his absence.

Keefe was Ole Miss Coach before the 2020 season and led the Rebels to a 5-5 record by beating Indiana in the Outback Bowl. It was Ole Miss’s first bowl since 2015. The Rebels (3-0) are 76 yards higher than No. 1-No. 2 Ohio State in total offense, including a game at No. 12 and 635 yards in the country this season.
Kiffin tweeted Tuesday that he would pray for Wilbon. On Wednesday, he was asked about Wilbon’s remarks at the weekly Southeast Conference teleconference.
“I think everyone has the right to do whatever you want. You can’t control what people do,” Kiffin said. “I get more worried when the person actually meets you and knows you versus someone who has never met you and doesn’t know you at all. It was far above what most professional media say, but it got attention, so Maybe that’s the name of the game. “

Asked if this was a “low push”, Kiffin said, “Professional media doesn’t usually go that far, especially when you’ve never met them and they don’t recognize you at all. Going to be defeated.
