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.”

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…
