Ole Miss coach Lane Kiffin took to social media again Tuesday with his latest jab toward his SEC peers.

The Father's Day meme depicting Georgia coach Kirby Smart in the arms of a buff Nick Saban drew attention from fans across the SEC.

Saban is 23-0 in his career against former assistants, including 1-0 against Kiffin and 3-0 against Smart.

Kiffin and Smart worked together for two years under Saban in 2014 and 2015, winning two SEC Championships and a National Championship.

Smart was perhaps the closest to ending the win streak in 2018 when then backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa delivered an overtime touchdown to DeVonta Smith on 2nd and 26 to spoil the upset and claim a National Championship.
