Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin spoke with reporters last week after the team's first spring practice and talked about the Rebel's 'embarrassing' loss to Baylor in the Sugar Bowl. Per On 3:
“Every year is new,” Kiffin said. “Every team is new and we lost a lot. Even when you have a lot coming back, every year is new. We’ve kind of put that behind us. Haven’t had you guys a lot since the last game and that was a difficult game. I felt we didn’t play very well at all on offense. Obviously, I am the head coach, take responsibility for that. It was embarrassing. It was an embarrassing performance and we did not give them many issues at all schematically. I don’t know if I have been a part of 10 sacks like that before.
“It was discouraging and the problem is, it’s your last game. You got to live with that, you don’t have another one to play seven days later. That was difficult to go out that way and especially as you go back and watch the film of the game, you really see how well we were playing on defense. You guys know my tirade after the Arkansas game and our performance on defense. This is right on that level offensively. That’s as bad of a performance as you can have and unfortunately, in one of the biggest games in the history of the program.”
