There are a million reasons to love Florida Atlantic head coach Lane Kiffin, not the least of which is his obsession with trolling Nick Saban on social media. There's another major reason to jump aboard the Lane Train: The man is about as honest as they come, and that was never more evident than his appearance today on the always-fantastic Dan Patrick Show.
Kiffin dropped a trio of semi-bombs today during the interview, including his belief that backup-turned-hero Tua Tagovailoa was ready to transfer in the offseason, Jalen Hurts may be the one doing so instead, and why the Crimson Tide couldn't have cared less that it lost Jake Fromm to Georgia when Kirby Smart left Tuscaloosa to join the Bulldogs.
Kiffin on Jalen Hurts Transferring and Why Bama Didn't Care it Lost From to UGA
The man who resurrected the Owls' program shed some light on the quarterbacking situation and how things may shake out this spring and summer.
If this second half doesn't flip like this [. . .] people that really know what's going on will tell you that Tua was leaving, because Tua thought that he should have been the starting quarterback.
Kiffin then added that it may be Hurts who ends up transferring after the incredible performance by Tagovailoa in the Crimson Tide's epic comeback against Georgia on Monday night.
He then gave us this gem on why Alabama wasn't concerned in the least that Fromm decided to join Smart in Athens.
Jake Fromm was committed to Alabama, and the story goes that Jake Fromm goes to Georgia after Kirby leaves, but we knew at the time we were probably getting Tua. They're in the same class obviously. We actually were OK with Jake going. That's kind of the unwritten story.
