Lane Kiffin’s mouth and actions as Tennessee’s coach and now USC’s head man have made him one of college football’s biggest villains. A concept which one Internet user took and ran with.
Aug. 14 marked the debut of the Tumblr “Bane Kiffin.” All the pictures feature Kiffin with Bane’s mask expertly superimposed on his face.
The cherry on top of this meme sundae are the quotes from The Dark Knight Rises that have been modified to apply to college football.
Among the gems:
- “I’m the SEC’s reckoning” USC could put an end to the SEC’s six-year BCS title streak this season.
- “Now is not the time for a two-point conversion. That comes later.” Kiffin is known for his penchant to go for two.
- “When the sanctions come down and Penn State is ashes, you have my permission to transfer.” New USC running back Silas Redd, formerly of the Nittany Lions, is also pictured.
“McKayla is Not Impressed” has some worthy company in the sports Tumblr-sphere.
