Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin won't be taking part Saturday in the SEC championship game, but he doesn't mind taking part in the buildup to the game.

Kiffin broke down the Alabama-Florida showdown this week on Knoxville radio station WNML-AM 990, and it's pretty obvious that he thinks the Crimson Tide have a decided advantage in the coaching department.

"It's kind of hard to call," Kiffin said. "There's a bunch of great players on both teams. Florida has so much speed. I think you'll see that Alabama will out-scheme Florida, and Florida has given up 28 sacks this year when a bunch of guys come free. But the problem is Superman [Tim Tebow] is back there. It comes down to: Can you tackle him.

"It will be a real interesting matchup. Florida has better players, and Alabama has better coaches."

Think that last line was an early Christmas present to Kiffin's good buddy, Urban Meyer?

The subtle digs keep coming.
