Mike Slive has SEC coaches shaking in their boots


The SEC's new smiley-face policy on criticizing officials has been taken out for an early test drive by Florida coach Urban Meyer, a move that can be clearly defined as "taking one for the team."

With most of the college-football world lining up against his star linebacker -- and Crest High grad -- Brandon Spikes for his attempted eye-gouge on Georgia runner Washaun Ealey, Meyer fired back. He says the zebes missed a blatant late hit earlier in the game on Gator quarterback Tim Tebow (and anybody who saw the play knows a flag could easily have been thrown.)

Meyer's comments, though, seem to violate Slive's ban on bashing refs. Will the commissioner throw a flag?

In the meantime, this is just what the rest of us need. The defending national champions shooting up with a late-season dose of "Us against the world."

Of all the self-development tools available these days, Urban had to go and join the Lane Kiffin School of Public Speaking. What a shame.
