Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was a guest on The Dan Patrick Show Wednesday afternoon ahead of the Rebels matchup with #2 Alabama this weekend. Topics ranged from the serious to the lighthearted as the segment began with Patrick asking how Kiffin’s team is dealing with COVID and ended with the coach jokingly giving Patrick advice on how to bet on the big game.

“I think college football has a harder time dealing with it (COVID) than the NFL,” Kiffin said. “The NFL, the players, they are professionals. Our players have done a great job, but college kids are not professional adults. College kids go to parties or go out on the town. it’s very difficult. People say, ‘just have them social distance’. Honestly, hardly anyone is social distancing. There are a lot of people, even adults ,who act like it (COVID) is not even going on.”

The focus then shifts to football and Alabama and the mystique of Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

“What do you tell your kids about playing against him (Saban)?” Patrick asks.

“First of all, the coaches aren’t playing in the game,” Kiffin said. “I wish we were because that would make it easier for us. Nick can’t cover me.”

“I don’t know,” Patrick interrupts. “Coach was a former defensive back. He might could cover you.”

“I would worry about him if he tried,” Kiffin responded. “He’s pretty elderly by now… Seriously, he is a great coach and this is probably the best team he has ever had. There are no holes (on Alabama’s team).We are going to have to do everything right in order to just have a chance to win.”

Vegas also believes that Ole Miss will have a tough time pulling an upset, as the Rebels are 23.5 point home underdogs to the Crimson Tide.

“I thought it would be closer to 50,” Kiffin said. “The last few games have been like 63-13. That’s 50 points.”

Patrick adds that he plans to take Ole Miss and the points.

“Let’s go!” Kiffin said. “Just go ahead and take the money line straight up.”

Patrick laughs. “Coach, I can talk about this but I don’t think you can. If I win though, I will share the money with you.”

“I don’t think that’s legal either,” Kiffin laughs.

Even though the exchange was carried out in a joking manner, the tweet of the clip, which the Dan Patrick Show posted on Wednesday night, has been deleted.
