Urban Meyer: That Will Be $30,000 Please

Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive is evidently a man of his word. He last week said he was finished reprimanding SEC head coaches about their verbal outbursts regarding conference officials. From now on he vowed, suspensions and fines would be the modus operandi. Well, Florida head man Urban Meyer has been the first conference coach to feel the brunt of Slive's promise. Friday, the league office fined Meyer $30,000 for his public remarks about certain calls in the Gators lopsided win over rival Georgia. You think Lane Kiffin is breathing a sigh of relief that he wasn't the first one to have to fork out the big bucks? Talk about dodging a bullet. But there's still a lot of football left to be played. I'm just saying...
