After Tom Herman, Lane Kiffin was the hottest coach on the market this college football season, but the decision to take a job as head coach at Florida Atlantic University had some scratching their heads. FAU’s new hype video have fans doing the same.
The short video, that looked like more a hostage random tape rather than a hype video, is aimed at getting players to commit to the Owls. An apparent drunk, bloated, Kiffin (who acts like he just woke up from a chloroform nap) talks while trying to shield the Florida sun from his eyes un-enthusiatically attempting to sway some of the “best players in the country.”
Commit to the Owls! Coach @Lane_Kiffin is bringing in the best recruits. Now we need the best fans!

It’s safe to say FAU had players de-committ after they saw this SNL skit of a “hype video.”
