Lane Kiffin came out fired up against Alabama on Saturday. Perhaps he came out too fired up.

After dropping the mic during his pregame interview with CBS, Kiffin’s offense turned it over on downs on its first 2 possessions.

Later in the first half, he went for it on 4th-and-1 again and the Rebels failed to convert on an option play.

The aggressiveness is something fans will appreciate, but when it doesn’t work, it puts the defense in bad situations.

As the first half wore on, fans took to social media to call out Kiffin for gambling too much:

Now that the Rebels are in a hole, it’s probably safe to say Kiffin is going to have to gamble even more in the second half. We’ll see if that ends up working out, or if the Rebels dig themselves a deeper hole against the No. 1 team in the country.
