Here's Why Lane Kiffin Is Calling FAU 'LSU'

This is certainly interesting.

Lane Kiffin has been reeling in transfers left and right since taking over at FAU. Just yesterday, he landed West Virginia WR Jovon Durante. Durante was absent from WVU's preseason camp for "personal reasons."

Kiffin has also added quarterback Chris Robison, who was dismissed from the program at Oklahoma, as well as Auburn's John Franklin III and two players from East Mississippi Community College aka Last Chance U.

Kiffin joked today that his team is not the Division I "Last Chance U" but is rather "LSU: Last Strike U."

Kiffin's strategy of taking talented players with baggage or who flopped elsewhere is not a bad one for now.

Is it sustainable? That remains to be seen.
