Kiffin says he’ll provide the locale for the pending bout, telling the duo to bring the action to Oxford.
“Do it in the Sip,” the coach tweeted in response to a post about the upcoming battle. “The Sip” meaning Mississippi.
The hashtag #ComeToTheSip is often used in Kiffin’s recruiting efforts, but apparently the shout outs aren’t limited to just football players. In fact, he’s encouraged a number of internet superstars to spend some time in Oxford, most recently courting Hasbulla in an online campaign.

Maybe we’ll see him pull up to a Rebels game this fall.

Kiffin is no stranger to Twitter. He notes that in his profile banner with a photo that reads, “Lane Kiffin tweets too much. He will probably tweet this, too.”
This week, his attention is on that aforementioned heavyweight bout between Musk and Zuck.
Lane Kiffin recruits Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg to Oxford.

“Do it in the Sip,” Kiffin replied since the Colosseum no longer looks to be an option.
The fight has been teased ever since Musk took over Twitter (or X?) many months ago. An online rivalry has since blossomed between the social media heads. Unfortunately, Zuck appears to have recently pulled out of the matchup.
If the contest does in fact happen, we have a venue. We’ll see if Kiffin is able to able to flex his recruiting muscles once again with this latest online offer.
