“Hey @Lane_Kiffin my guy Dabo told me to tell you he’ll take you on for a 1 v 1 in Basketball anytime, anyplace,” McCuin said on Twitter. “I told him my money is on you big dawg!”

Kiffin is up for the challenge. The Ole Miss head coach is down to play on one condition: he wants home-court advantage in Oxford.
“You know it Coach Yo! Let’s make it happen Dabo #ComeToTheSip for a matchup,” Kiffin responded.

We think we’d put our money on Lane Kiffin here. He’s 6-foot-3 compared to Swinney who’s 5-foot-11. Kiffin’s also younger (45 years old versus 51 for Swinney). But who knows, Swinney tends to find ways to win.
On the gridiron, Clemson football is aiming to bounce back from another playoff loss last season. It’s been two years since the Tigers won a championship, but they appear well-equipped to end such a drought this upcoming season.
Ole Miss, meanwhile, appears to be a team on the rise. The Rebels finished just 4-5 during the regular season, but ended on a high note with a major upset of Indiana in the Outback Bowl. Kiffin has Ole Miss heading in the right direction.
