FAU head football coach Lane Kiffin joins Off the Bench to talk football, starting with the LSU-Alabama game and how he felt about LSU’s offense when he was at Alabama.
“It was kind of always about 10-15 years behind,” Kiffin said. “Coach Miles won a lot of games that way.”
The offense has caught up to the times now, though, Kiffin said.
“They’ve just really totally evolved,” Kiffin said. “You can’t have a million plays like you used to. They’re doing a great job of it.”
Nick Saban’s comments on Tua Tagovailoa were predictable, Kiffin said.
“(Tua) could have been 100% or 0%,” Kiffin said, “and it still would have been ‘game time decision’ two weeks ago.”
Kiffin said that if the President wanted to talk to the Alabama team in the locker room before the game, he would have a hard time getting Saban to allow it.
“Not a chance,” Kiffin said. “No way.”
When asked about going to Florida State to coach, Kiffin said he felt content in his current spot.
“I’m very happy here,” Kiffin said, “and we’ve got a big rivalry game here against FIU.”
