Lane Kiffin trolls Tennessee after NCAA's decision on faking injuries
Lane Kiffin didn’t shy from sharing his reaction to the NCAA’s decision on faking injuries. Friday night, Kiffin quote-tweeted a 247Sports story saying there will not be in-game penalties for faking injuries, tagging Tennessee football’s official account.

Kiffin may have simply been amused by 247Sports’ use of an exasperated Josh Heupel as the featured image, but the Ole Miss head coach’s tweet was widely interpreted as taunting the Volunteers.

Faking injuries was a hot topic after Ole Miss’ 31-26 win over Tennessee on Oct. 16, 2021, the game that will be remembered for the golf balls and mustard bottles thrown onto the field at Neyland Stadium. Heupel was a fitting image for the 247Sports article, as UT opponents were accused of faking injuries to slow down the Vols’ fast-paced offense throughout 2021.
Tennessee and Ole Miss are not set to meet in the 2022 regular season.
