Kiffin Defends Game Plan, Takes Shot At Meyer


(AP) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin said he put his Volunteers in the best position they could be in to beat Florida. Then he took one more shot at Gators coach Urban Meyer.

Meyer said Sunday that he kept his game plan conservative in No. 1 Florida's 23-13 win after he felt the Vols didn't appear to be playing for a win. He also said several of his players had been hit by the flu.

Kiffin said Monday that he did not want to respond to Meyer's comment. When asked whether he was worried about the flu hitting Tennessee, Kiffin said, "I don't know. I guess we'll wait and after we're not excited about a performance, we'll tell you everybody was sick."
