Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss is a marriage so volatile it just might work

So here comes a college football coaching marriage the sport needed — a sure-to-entertain, likely-to-infuriate (especially the SEC commissioner) and perhaps even destined-to-succeed partnership between Ole Miss and Lane Kiffin.

Yes, that Lane Kiffin. And, yes, that Ole Miss.

The Rebels are hiring the Rebel, bringing the Lane Train back to the SEC and giving its program a shot at not just wins, but relevance. On the flipside, Kiffin gets another crack at the big time to show his talent might finally outweigh his antics, which could be toned down but are unlikely to disappear.
