New Mississippi State head coach Mike Leach and new Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin are old buddies from their PAC 12 days, where they would face off during USC vs. Washington State games. So, what's their relationship like now both being SEC coaches?...

“Lane’s a good guy,” Leach told CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd in a recent interview. “We text back and forth. What’s fun about Lane is, everything they say about him is true, but he’s still a pretty good entertaining guy.”
“Lane’s very hilarious to listen to,” Leach said. “His view on nearly every subject is different than mine. That’s OK. It’s fun to goof on Lane. He’s a fun guy to goof on because he’s a reactor.
“When he was at SC, he always had the upper hand. … He’s kind of a broader net [in recruiting]. It seemed to me he was into more of the national thing. In our case, we stayed closer to home.”
