Ole Miss Head Coach Lane Kiffin, known for his wit and entertainment value in college football, finds his program embroiled in a controversy after being caught manufacturing bulletin board material through a burner Twitter account impersonating a Penn State fan.
In the lead-up to the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl matchup between Penn State and Ole Miss, Kiffin retweeted tweets from a supposed Penn State account that exhibited disrespect towards Ole Miss. Despite the low stakes of a bowl game, Ole Miss went the extra mile to motivate their team.
Initially appearing as ordinary banter before a significant game, suspicions arose among internet sleuths due to the account’s recent creation and the provocative nature of the tweets. Further investigation, using the Twitter “forget password” feature, revealed the email address associated with the account, hinting at a potential privacy issue.
Astonishingly, the email address seemingly belongs to Ole Miss’ offensive assistant Fisher Ray, indicating a lack of discretion on the part of the Ole Miss football program.
The use of an easily traceable email address instead of a discreet burner email raises questions about attention to detail. This incident draws parallels to a level of oversight akin to Connor Stalions.
The #10 Penn State and #11 Ole Miss showdown is scheduled for Noon ET on Saturday.
