Ole Miss football coach Lane Kiffin was once again asked to talk about his future and speculation linking him to the Auburn job.The questions came amid reports that he's the No. 1 candidate to fill the coaching vacancy at Auburn — a line some reporters have been repeating since Auburn moved on from Bryan Harsin on October 31.
