Yep, this is it. This is the one. The worst bad beat of the college football season came last night and it came at the hands of Lane MF Kiffin. All aboard the Lane Train, bitches!

Let me set the scene for you: The FAU-Marshall line closed at FAU -6.5 last night. Fast forward to the fourth quarter, FAU is sitting on a 30-23 lead with 14 seconds left on 4th down from their own 23. Now they have a few options here. They can go ahead and punt it away, risking the chance for a block and potential game-tying TD or they can run out of the back of the end zone, take the safety, essentially end the game, but also lose the cover and ruin thousands of bets across America.

Annnnd I think you know what option Lane took.

FAU was -6 point spread on Marshall & Lane Kiffin just trolled everybody with the safety 😂😂😂 #Fau #Lanekiffin

BRUTAL. Just a brutal dick kick to all the bettors looking to start the weekend on a win. The Lane Train is no joke, you never know where you’ll end up.

So what was Kiffin’s response after the game?

Just a casual mention of not wanting to cover.

Didn't want to cover because of too much rat poison #keptuwatching #5-0 #cometothefau #playersgetweekendoff

Of course, it was all just a joke

FAU spokesperson says Lane Kiffin was joking when he tweeted "Didn’t want to cover" after taking an intentional safety that impacted spread.
