Lane Kiffin is a master troll.
The FAU football coach is always entertaining on social media and he knows how to get a rise out of people. His latest Twitter troll job, however, is gaining extra attention because it takes a direct shot at his former boss, Nick Saban.
On Tuesday, Kiffin took to Twitter to fire off a shot at Saban for comments he made last year regarding Ohio State and the College Football Playoff.
At the time, Saban said he believes teams should have to win their conference in order to reach the College Football Playoff. This year, with the Crimson Tide missing out on the SEC Championship, Saban has changed his tune and said his team deserves to be in the final four because of everything they have accomplished.
Well, Kiffin wasn’t going to let that slide, so he fired up the old Twitter machine and let out this gem:
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Can u rat poison urself? https://t.co/ABtCCn0dwB

Well played, Lane. The “rat poison” comment is a dig at Saban’s quote earlier in the year when he said the media’s praise of his team had the same effect as “rat poison.” Lane was ready.
Can we please get Lane Kiffin back to Tennessee so he and Saban can go after each other on the field?
