SEC enacts Kiffin rule; unanimous support from conference

Here is the official word from the SEC:

BIRMINGHAM – In a unanimous vote of the Southeastern Conference’s Athletic Directors and with the full support of the Conference’s twelve Presidents and Chancellors, all violations of SEC Bylaw 10.5.4 will be enforced by suspensions and fines, effective immediately.

The length of the suspension and the amount of the fine will be at the discretion of the Commissioner.

SEC Bylaw 10.5.4 requires that coaches, assistant coaches, players, support personnel and others associated with the institution’s athletics program refrain from public criticism of officials.

Head coaches are advised that suspensions and fines for violations of Bylaw 10.5.4 made by assistant coaches or other support personnel will be enforced against the head coach.

“There are proper channels available for head coaches to use when communicating officiating concerns to the Conference office,” said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive.

As is customary practice, the conference office will continue to address reviews of officiating calls on specific plays with each institution’s head coach and no public comments will be made concerning these communications.

    Better late than never. Just sorry that K-Town Crybaby wiggled out of this one .
    Slive’s Balls ( shrinking daily) were slow roasting to do something. Why is it that Issues like this has to fester forever until the People that are in Charge – DO SOMETHING ! Just another case where in the REAL WORLD – your happy ass would be gone. K-Town Crybaby is living a charmed life.
    Lest we forget – The Tenn Prez and AD voted for this.

    Indiana Vol

    Crimson Turd Moron Nation specifically Pluto,

    Get ready for your 2nd season in a row with nothing to show for it!

    Meanwhile, your future owner Lane Kiffin and the Vols will win out and get a good bowl win to propel the Vols back into the national spotlight. Next year, Kiffin will pick up where Fulmer left off, owning the behinds of the Dirty Habitual Cheaters.

    Per Kirk Herbstreit on College Gameday, “teams had better get their licks in on the Vols now, because the Vols are back and will be a force in the SEC for years to come.”

    READ IT AND WEEP; low-life scum!
