What do you do if you’re Lane Kiffin and your team is winning by 31 at the Boca Raton Bowl, about to tack on another extra point but you remember that the day before the athletic director talked a bit of trash at a luncheon about his team beating your team? You instantly recall just who the hell you are and realize that a Lane Kiffin that turns the other cheek is a Lane Kiffin that simply doesn’t exist so you send your offense back out and go for two and pummel the Zips to the tune of 50-3.
That’s what you needed to do. That’s what the world needed you to do. I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say that if Lane just took the mild ribbing he heard at that luncheon by some slick tongued administrator then the Earth would have stopped rotating. And you can tell that it Lane knew he didn’t even had a choice in the matter when he said it was “his bad” on why he went for two. George Van Horne(no relation to Keith) the AD in question, basically sealed his and his team’s fate when he just had to get in a couple words and look strong in front of other old administrators. The man thought Lane would just lye down and accept you clowning him at a harmless lunch. Won’t be making that mistake next time you get to the Boca Raton Bowl.

After the game, Kiffin was asked about the it and initially said, “We’re not going to talk about that.”
After a brief pause, he couldn’t help himself, explaining he wanted to run up the score in response to some trash talking the previous day from Akron Associate Athletics Director George Van Horne.
Thank you L̶a̶n̶e̶ Joey Freshwater for just being you. I know it was e̶a̶s̶i̶e̶s̶t̶ hardest thing in the world for you to doubleback and and let everyone know that no one and you mean no one, not any AD from any school, not Nick Saban not anyone crosses Joey Freshwater and gets away with it.
