Paul Finebaum Thinks Lane Kiffin Outcoached Nick Saban On Saturday
© Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports
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...

“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.”
Do you agree?

Finebaum doesn't know anything about Xs and Os. How would he even know what "out-coached" looks like?

Turning into a young man’s offense game. Defenses suck right now until they figure out how to stop this new offense. WB play in SEC is better than ever too

He was outcoached. Bama has way more talent.

If Kiffin outcoached him, he would have won the game. I do think you have to ask the question though if the signs were stolen why would they be the same as they were when Kiffin is there? Why would you not change them?
