The Cotton Bowl wasn't the most exciting affair, as Alabama dominated Michigan State from start to finish in a 38-0 victory. Apparently, Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin also found the contest a bit boring. Well, maybe.

Following a 50-yard touchdown pass from Jacob Coker to Calvin Ridley, which put Alabama up 31-0, Kiffin reportedly jokingly mouthed "boring" to his players. ESPN's Brett McMurphy reported the news.

The question, of course, is whether Kiffin is trolling the Spartans. Instead, he might actually be trolling FOX Sports' Colin Cowherd. Cowherd, who didn't believe the Crimson Tide belonged in the playoff at all, went on a rant two weeks ago regarding Alabama's "bland" program, comparing them to Wal-Mart. You can listen to it here.

Either way, expect this to get some play.
