SEC commish puts kibosh on Kiffin-Meyer hostilities

Do you hear that sound coming from down South? No, you don’t, and there’s a good reason for it.

After spending the early part of the week escalating the sniping, both Lane Kiffin and Urban Meyer received a phone call from their friendly neighborhood commissioner, telling them in not so many words to knock off the playground taunting.

According to USA Today, SEC commish Mike Slive dialed up the coaches from Tennessee and Florida and reminded them of they’d had an earlier conversation this offseason about lobbing verbal grenades at each other. We’re assuming both confabs included something along the lines of “silence is golden”. Or “STFU”. Or something.

Meyer took the advice to heart, liberally offering up “no comments” whenever Kiffin’s name has been brought up the past two days.
