Lane Kiffin was trolled on social media in response to his subtle confidence ahead of Saturday’s game at Alabama.
Kiffin’s Ole Miss Rebels lost 42-21 at Bama and make a bit of a second half comeback after falling behind 28-0 at halftime.
Before the game, Kiffin was interviewed by CBS and told fans to “get your popcorn ready.” The implication was that his team was getting ready to put on a show.

Unfortunately, they fizzled out pretty quickly and got dominated in the first half. After the game, fans had a fun time with the “popcorn” quote on Twitter. They had all sorts of jokes.

Hey, Kiffin promised fans a show, but was never specific. Maybe he was talking about what Alabama was going to do in the game?
