In a stunning announcement this morning, Nick Saban has named Lane Kiffin as the head coach in waiting for the Crim… ok, we couldn’t even finish the sentence without spilling the beans. April Fools!

What do you think this is? Joker Phillips and Kentucky? Will Muschamp and Texas? Big Ten Bielema and Wisconsin? Jimbo Fisher and FSU? C’mon, Nick Saban has Alabama football much too wired to make that kind of move.

Not that we’re not Lane Kiffin fans. There’s nothing better than Kiffin giving the touchdown signal on the sideline while the ball is still in the air. Well, except for the times that Saban chews him out for not running the ball enough.

Happy April Fools’ Day.
