Kiffin has been known to say almost anything at any point and Tuesday at his press conference when he dropped this notion about starting quarterback Jonathan Crompton, more than a few heads turned.
"He was so accurate," Kiffin said of Crompton's career-best day against Georgia. "There were two things, one is accuracy, which I talked about the week before when he had not played as well (against Auburn). When your passing game is struggling, if you go into a game and your quarterback isn't accurate at times and you drop the ball six times like we had against Auburn, you're not going to do well.
"Then we go into the next week, we catch the ball and we're accurate. You put them both together, that's what happens. The quarterback ends up being the national offensive player of the week.
"We need to continue to build on that and we need to continue to make plays for him. He was phenomenal on the run (against Georgia). I think scouts are going to come in, and watching that game alone, I think are going to give him a first-round grade. It's almost impossible to find something that he did wrong in those 27 throws that he had."
