On Monday, Alabama released a statement expressing its "disappointment" at being placed in the noon ET kickoff window for its Sept. 21 game vs. Southern Miss. Less than 24 hours later, true to form of the great Iron Bowl rivalry, Auburn coach Gus Malzahn had a heaping amount of shade prepared in the opening statement of his press conference to directly (indirectly) address it.

"Our guys are excited to be back home for our second home game. Playing a very solid Kent State team," Malzahn said, his face deadpan before delivering the kicker. "6 p.m. kick. Personally I wish it was at noon so we'd have more time to prepare for our next opponent."

Alabama complained Monday about being put in a noon kickoff vs. Southern Miss, setting up Gus Malzahn for an all-time press conference subtweet.

Did you see that? No side grin, no wink, no giggle. Expressionless. That, friends, is how you deliver shade.
