Lane Kiffin responds to Nick Saban's comments wondering if Ole Miss stole Alabama's signals
Saturday’s game between Ole Miss and Alabama turned into a must-see shootout.
The two teams were locked at 21-all heading into halftime and 42-all early in the fourth quarter. From that point on, Nick Sabana’s Crimson Tide outscored Ole Miss 21-6 for a 63-48 win.
After the game, Saban admitted that Alabama did not do a good job defensively in the game. It led Saban to wonder if Lane Kiffin and the Rebels knew Alabama’s defensive signals during the game.
Though Saban admitted teams knowing the signals of the opposition is not unheard of, Kiffin took the time to respond to the thought on Sunday. It was definitely a classic response by Kiffin:
FYI when u go as fast as we do we call our play first. Stealing signals wouldn’t help us at all because we are snapping the ball why they were still trying to just line up. #facts #ComeToTheSip @AlabamaFTBL go win the natty @OleMissFB https://t.co/6EvFe8PX4R

Now that Kiffin is back in the SEC West, you can count on the Ole Miss-Alabama matchup to be must-see for the foreseeable future. The first matchup between Kiffin and Saban certainly did not disappoint.
