Nickel and diming Urban Meyer

Posted on: November 6, 2009 1:50 pm
 
Mike Slive is for real. Well, his threat is for real.

The SEC commissioner wasn't playing around when he fined Urban Meyer $30,000 for a mild rebuke of officials. There is no truth to the rumor, though, Brandon Spikes escalated the fine to $60,000.

While this amounts to nothing more than a used Lexus for his kids, the fine is still significant for Meyer. It sends a clear message that Slive isn't fooling around. Just wondering why it took 50 hours from the time Meyer said, "That was a penalty, in my opinion," to the time the fine was handed down.

Batting next, Lane Kiffin. Can he keep his mouth shut?

Why do all these UF fans always talk about the Zook era as if it was bad for them.  One would think they would realize that their national titles were won by HIS recruits, this current team was built on the laurels that HIS recruits made.  We will see how good Florida stays now that Tenn is recruiting better, bama will be on their regular season schedule soon and miami is getting the best talent in their backyard again.  I can't wait till 2012 when you come back down to Miami and get rolled.  I would say 2011 but you wont be in the national title game with the Canes after you realize that Brantley may be a better passer than tebow but you have no talent on your team that can catch or run hard without your fullback leading the way.

Shocked I Say, Shocked

That Slive actually find his child prodigy Suburban Cryer.  I figured that the edict about the officiating applied to everyone except Cryer and Tricky Nicky, but I guess I was wrong.  Slive is really going out of his way to cover up the conspiracy that he has orchestrated this year,  Too bad the rest of the country has figured out what a joke the Soft Easy Conference is.

Hey waterhead, UT got their championship in 98, the way I remember it that was two years on a calendar after UF won (1996).  Oh and the dominance of UT,6 titles in over 200 years, UF 3 in 100.  Who has owned who recently?  Bring it next year, because with or without Tebow UF will beat the dogs**t out of that snotty a** punk Kiffin, the only sad thing is the one good coach, Monte will have to endure the punishment as well.  UT is not only a sad excuse for a football team but its been almost 5 years since they last beat Florida, which came under Ron Zook, so UF was handicap anyways.  Since the BCS era who has more national titles?  Get onboard with the facts, Tennesse would be better off changing conference's, but Kiffin is to cocky so the as* whoopings will continue, good luck in the Enron Toliet Bowl this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And our minds still work... your USC Trojans have TWO LOSSES and are OUT of the national championship picture.  Quit whining or else we are going to change your motto to "Cry on!"

have you ever heard of Les Miles?  There have been all kinds of freaks in this conference...  You are a fool if you don't think most Kiffin's pre-game praise is intentional.  I am just glad he hasn't cried like a girl in a press conference after losing (see LSU 2 years ago)

first of all 12/76 does not equal .263 sorry to tell you (the 12 years where you had a better conference record than others in the EAST).  but those 12 would only be years that you were best in one half of the conference.  8/76 is nothing to brag about.  I am pretty sure Vandy can boast that too...

How can so many people be talking up a 4-4 UT team? I mean, Monte is the head coach, not Lane. Recruits are going to UT to play for Monte, well, and to avoid pumping gas after they get their degree. Lane Kiffen is like the sports PR guy, he runs off at the yap and daddy saves his bacon. Has anyone else noticed the week before UT plays against one of the teams Lane mouthed off too he's all, "Florida is the best team in the nation, I just hope we stay with them for 1 quarter". "I want UT to play football like Alabama plays one day". "I grew up idolizing Stever Spurrier, thats why I'm so arrogant". He goes from lunatic to sycophant faster than Rosie O'donnel can eat a leg of lamb. And as soon as the game is over he puts the bullseye back on and the distraction tactics continue. I would be so embarrased of him if he was my teams coach. Never in the S.E.C. has such a freak been a head coach.
