Rivalry fun: Lane Kiffin refers to Ole Miss color as 'sissy blue'
Don’t be surprised if Ole Miss wears “sissy blue” this season against LSU.
Rebels coach Lane Kiffin jokingly referred to the Rebels’ powder blue as “sissy blue” Tuesday, referencing LSU coach Ed Orgeron’s viral comment directed at a UCLA fan.
I can tell you today our head coach was @WarrenSapp. Had to get the defense right like @Buccaneers vs @MichaelVick in the @GeorgiaDome and he did it! If you built they will come @OleMissFB Love these players, coaches, and Warren even in our sissy blue! 🐯 pic.twitter.com/CPAbu2rzMb

Considering that Kiffin and Orgeron are close from their days at USC and Tennessee, this appears to just be some light-hearted social media fun.

His friendship with Orgeron, though, didn’t stop him from also getting a laugh out of UCLA trolling the Tigers following the upset victory in Pasadena.
