Watch Lane Kiffin have the nerve to take shots at Ohio State's usage of Ezekiel Elliott

Only 13 carries for your star running back. Sound familiar, Lane?

Leave it to Lane Kiffin to be late to the party on making jokes about Ezekiel Elliott's usage against Michigan State.

As Alabama prepares to take on the Spartans in the Cotton Bowl with a spot in the College Football Playoff final on the line, the Crimson Tide's offensive coordinator spoke about how the Spartans have handled some of the better backs they faced in 2015, including Ohio State's Elliott (who received just 13 carries against Michigan State when the two faced off).

Good one, Lane. Especially ironic, given that during last year's semi-final beatdown at the hands of Ohio State, Kiffin chose to give it to T.J. Yeldon just 10 times, and Derrick Henry just 13 times. But yeah, go ahead and keep talking, Coach.
