Lane Kiffin has his Florida Atlantic Owls rolling, and they will play for the Conference USA championship if they can beat rival Florida International on Saturday.
The Owls are favored to beat FIU by 15, and ESPN gives FAU an 88.5 percent chance of winning. Kiffin posted a screenshot of a graphic from ESPN and called it “beyond rat poison” in a reference to Nick Saban’s rant earlier this season.
Saban said the media hyping up Alabama was like “rat poison” to his program, and now Kiffin is having some fun with his former boss.
Saban probably wouldn’t find much humor in Kiffin’s comments, but he then again he probably wouldn’t care that much about what Kiffin said on Twitter.
Meanwhile, both Saban and Kiffin can both play for conference championships if they win their next conference games — despite the media’s rat poison.
