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?
Nickel and diming Urban Meyer
