Lane Kiffin is back in the SEC and everyone who loves college football should be rejoicing. Few things are as entertaining as a Lane Kiffin-led major program.
It didn’t take very long for Kiffin to start producing viral SEC moments, either. In fact, one happened as he got off the plane in Oxford, Miss. earlier this week.
Several Ole Miss fans greeted Kiffin at the airport. One fan had Kiffin hold his baby as he offered up some advice:
“Get you a burner phone.”

Kiffin spoke to ESPN about the moment, saying that he was caught off guard by it, but hey, this is the SEC.
Even Kiffin, rarely fazed by much of anything, is caught off guard by the man’s suggestion.
“I think he was being serious,” Kiffin quips. “But again, welcome back to the SEC.”
Welcome back, indeed.
