Lane Kiffin wants Bama and now we need that to happen

Trollin' Lane Kiffin was in fine form Saturday as his mighty Owls of Florida Atlantic captured the elusive Conference USA title.
As his team whomped the North Texas Mean Green 41-7 a rousing "We Want Bama" chant could be heard in Boca Raton. Asked about a possible bowl foe, the former Bama coordinator had a perfect Kiffin response.
"Did you hear our fans at the end of the game?" Kiffin asked media at the post-game presser. "Did you hear what they were saying? 'We want Bama.' That's what they were saying."
"I would love to play Bama," Kiffin said. "I'd feel sorry for our players, but I'd like it."
Kiffin, who claims to be on good terms with Nick Saban, can't help but troll the Alabama head coach and on a regular basis.
I could go on.
Kiffin has basically defended the constant needling by saying that Saban doesn't know how to use 21st century technical normalities like texting and Twitter, therefore Saban doesn't see them and is impervious.
He basically just defined subtweeting, but with a twist.
Can you imagine the potential for a FAU-Bama matchup? Is it too late to squeeze another not-so-cupcake on to Alabama's schedule in 2018? I'd settle for a two-day lead-up. Maybe even two hours. Please.
