SEC Speaks To Kiffin, Meyer About Comments


(AP) KNOXVILLE, Tenn. - Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive has once again spoken to Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin and Florida's Urban Meyer about public comments both have made recently.

SEC spokesman Chuck Dunlap would not elaborate on what Slive told the coaches or when, but told The Associated Press the commissioner considered the matter resolved.

After a 23-13 win by Florida over Tennessee on Saturday, Meyer said his Gators played conservatively after he felt the Vols weren't playing to win. He also said some of his players were affected by flu symptoms.

Kiffin later retorted that he would wait until Tennessee wasn't excited about a performance and blame it on illness.

Slive spoke to the coaches about their verbal jabs before the season.
