On ESPN’s First Take this morning, college football analyst Paul Finebaum made everyone perk up when he claimed Ole Miss' Lane Kiffin outcoached Nick Saban on Saturday, even though Ole Miss lost to Alabama. He thinks that's why Saban accused Kiffin of stealing signs...
quote:Do you agree?
“The other night Lane Kiffin probably came closest (to being the first former Saban assistant to beat the Alabama coach), I mean he outcoached Nick Saban, but of course, he lost the game because he has maybe the worst defense I’ve ever seen in the SEC. But he has also one of the most explosive offenses I’ve ever seen.
“Alabama could not keep up with Ole Miss. I mean their defense was gassed, they didn’t know what was coming and it led Saban to, unfortunately, accuse his former pupil of stealing signals, even though Kiffin very intelligently responded, ‘Oh, we call the plays as the previous play has ended. So, that’s a non-starter.’ And yesterday, Saban very cautiously walked that one back.”
