Spurrier confronts Kiffin

Posted by Jon Solomon -- Birmingham News May 26, 2009 7:17 PM

Lane Kiffin may be the new mouth of the SEC. But Steve Spurrier isn't going down without a fight.

Earlier Tuesday in Destin, Fla., Kiffin was asked if he would apologize again to Florida coach Urban Meyer for accusing him of cheating. Kiffin responded that he had never received an apology from Spurrier after Spurrier questioned whether he had passed the NCAA compliance test before he began calling prospects.

Told of Kiffin's comment late Tuesday, Spurrier shook his head and faced Kiffin, who was waiting for an elevator with a couple other coaches. "I didn't accuse you of cheating," Spurrier told Kiffin. "I said, 'It is permissible to call recruits before he's announced as head coach, before you take the test?"

Spurrier then turned back toward reporters and told them Kiffin took the test online and was unaware that was allowed. Kiffin's face turned red during the 40-second exchange and said something that was inaudible.

Spurrier was still talking as the elevator doors closed, exiting to laughter from media members and probably quite the elevator ride for Kiffin, Auburn's Gene Chizik, Arkansas' Bobby Petrino and Kentucky's Rich Brooks.



I usually try not to lower myself to this Finebaum/Springer garbage but I cannot help but be fascinated, in this off season purgatory, with this "train wreck" that is Lane Kiffin.  Did he actually take his shirt off? 

The jist of his response in this article when asked if he should apologize to Coach Meyer.: 

Spurrier didn't apologize to me so why should I apologize to Meyer? 

What the hell does one have to do with the other to anyone who is not seven and hanging upside down on a jungle gym in a school yard?

This BOY has not proven one thing on an SEC field,  yet he insists on "Poking Such Bears" as the likes of Meyer, Spurrier and (through Lance Thompson) even Saban. 

Gene Chizik and Dan Mullen had better sense than that. 

Watching Kiffikins crash and burn as a direct result of his total lack of respect for his elders is going to be a joy.  It may even restore my belief in the way things 'ought to be.

Roll Tide!!!
