Lane Kiffin critical of Alabama offensive gameplan at halftime
Despite his beef with Nick Saban, former Alabama offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin is still rooting on the Crimson Tide in the National Championship.
Kiffin is, however, not particularly happy with Alabama’s defensive gameplan, logging on to Twitter at halftime to suggest that the Tide throw the ball downfield.

Kiffin also retweeted a Florida Atlantic fan account praising Kiffin’s offensive mind — and pointing out how badly Alabama was struggling without him.
Once again #Alabama is struggling in the #NationalChampionshipGame. Common denominator? No @Lane_Kiffin. How glad are we as #FAU #OwlNation to have perhaps the greatest offensive mind in the #NCAA right now? #GoOwls! pic.twitter.com/ZzhtHYkx7x

Alabama’s halftime response was to bench their quarterback. We’ll see if that helps — or perhaps they’ll still embrace Kiffin’s suggested tweak.
