Observations and musings on Jacksonville Politics

Watch your tongue, boy!

Now I realize that this blog is devoted to the discussion of politics as it relates to Jacksonville and Florida as a whole; however, there are always moments for occasional deviation.   Today’s comments by Tennessee’s new football coach are the perfect example of when we might deviate…

Memo to Lane Kiffin:  Watch your tongue!

After calling Urban Meyer a “cheater” in an address to Volunteer fans this morning, Kiffin bowed to Florida Athletic Director Jeremy Foley’s demands this afternoon that he issue an immediate apology.

Apology accepted, Lane.  If you’re still around, we’ll continue this conversation on Sept 19.  The coach who actually has a track record to stand on will save up a few timeouts for the end of the game.  Just for you.  See you then.

    According to today’s TU:

    Tennessee football coach Lane Kiffin has been reprimanded by the Southeastern Conference office for publicly and erroneously accusing Florida coach Urban Meyer of a recruiting violation.

    SEC Commissioner Mike Slive criticized Kiffin’s lack of knowledge of recruiting rules and said Kiffin violated the SEC’s Code of Ethics when Kiffin said Thursday morning that Meyer “cheated” by phoning Pahokee High School receiver Nu’Keese Richardson when Richardson was on an official visit to Tennessee last weekend.

    “SEC Bylaw 10.5.1 clearly states that coaches and administrators shall refrain from directed public criticism of other member institutions, their staffs or players,” Slive’s statement read. “The phone call to which Coach Kiffin referred to in his public comments is not a violation of SEC or NCAA rules. We expect our coaches to have an understanding and knowledge of conference and NCAA rules.”
