Video: Lane Kiffin Jokes With Jimbo Fisher About Landing Jacob Coker, Says "It Must Be Nice To Be That Loaded"

It's all fun and games before the actual season starts. At last night's Dex Imaging Football Preview for L'Arche Mobile, a number of high-profile college football coaches were on-hand to give their thoughts about the upcoming season. Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin, who was hired this offseason to replace Doug Nussmeier after he left for Michigan, gave a mini-preview of the Tide's offense heading into the summer. He also jokingly thanked Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher for sending over Jameis Winston's backup, Jacob Coker, who will most likely be starting at quarterback this fall.

He finished the joke with "it must be nice to be that loaded". Via al.com:

The irony here, of course, is the idea that an Alabama coach is praising someone else for being loaded.

Alabama and Florida State are not set to play each other this season, but most believe that it's very possible that they both qualify for the College Football Playoff. A matchup between Coker and his former team would make for some great television.
