Lane Kiffin has endured his fair share of slander on the Internet over the years. Some of it has been deserved, some of it (probably) hasn't. But today might go down as one of his worst days when it comes to getting ripped apart by people on the Web.
Sometime this morning, a bunch of wild rumors about Kiffin started circulating on Twitter. It's unclear where they started or how much truth, if any, there is to any of them. But at the moment, Kiffin is trending on Twitter, and it seems clear that Alabama is going to have to say something about the rumors that are going around.

There's yet another about him sleeping with—whoa—Saban's daughter Kristen:
