Offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin has once again missed the Alabama team bus and been left behind.
Lane Kiffin was left behind by the buses at the Georgia Dome after media day.
FACT: The last time this happened, Bama won a national title.

“Yep, got left again,” cracked Kiffin, Alabama’s offensive coordinator and incoming Florida Atlantic head coach.
It was a similar scene last season after Alabama’s 45-40 win over Clemson to win the national championship. Kiffin was still talking to reporters as the team buses were pulling away from the University of Phoenix Stadium. He tried to get officials to stop the buses but to no avail.
“First, I get fired on the tarmac,” Kiffin said at the time, referring to his departure as head coach at Southern California, “and now I get left behind at the national championship.”
