Lane Kiffin has entered the ‘Taylor Swift’ phase in trolling Nick Saban

College Football’s Troll King has been busy this week.

First, Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin suggested that Nick Saban had secretly changed defensive coordinators at Alabama. Then, upon Saban’s annoyed denial of such a move, he claimed that someone or someones within the Crimson Tide football office confirmed it to their friends on the Ole Miss staff regardless of what Saban said publicly.

After upsetting that apple cart — and perhaps sending Saban on a mission to smoke out the leaker within the program — Kiffin decided to take to Twitter and just randomly, for no reason at all, offer up his followers a Taylor Swift concert video.

The song? “Castles Crumbling.”

Swift has recorded more than 200 songs. This is a relative-deep cut. So why choose that one (Lane’s Version)?

Well, let’s peruse the lyrics as the 15th-ranked Rebels prepare to visit a 13th-ranked Alabama team that after a double-digit home loss to Texas and a stumbling performance against South Florida look anything like one of Saban’s vintage contenders:

Once, I had an empire in a golden age

I was held up so high, I used to be great

They used to cheer when they saw my face

Now I fear I have fallen from grace

And I feel like my castle’s crumbling down

And I watch all my bridges burn to the ground

And you don’t want to know me

Oh there’s more.

Once, I was the great hope for a dynasty

Crowds would hang on my words, and they trusted me

Their faith was strong, but I pushed it too far

I held that grudge ’til it tore me apart

Power went to my head, and I couldn’t stop

Ones I loved tried to help, so I ran them off

And here I sit alone, behind walls of regret

Falling down like promises that I never kept

This is Taylor Swift, so she doesn’t mince words. And this is Lane Kiffin, so he doesn’t randomly post such a song unless he’s trying to poke the 800-pound bear of…
