The Big Blue Daily Mail -- Florida and Tennessee have not yet stopped the contest

It seems Urban Meyer and Lane Kiffin have decided that Saturday's game should continue with a few verbal jabs.  No need to end it just because the weekend is over, I guess.

First, Meyer:

''I think there's so much pressure on this team to perform perfectly, which is good,'' Meyer said. ''I'd rather be on that end than on, 'Boy, great job. We lost by 10.' I don't want to do that. There's a lot of pressure on these guys and I felt it in there.''

 Then, Kiffin fired back (well, no so much fired, really, as harrumphed):

On Monday, Kiffin said he didn’t want to respond to Meyer’s comment. But asked whether he was worried about the flu also hitting Tennessee, he said: "I don’t know. I guess we’ll wait and after we’re not excited about a performance, we’ll tell you everybody was sick."

So there you go.  These guys really should get a room.

Of course, lest you think Rich Brooks is a above a little verbal jousting, Steve Kragthorpe made this comment about playing against Trevard Lindley, "We weren't scared of that guy. We were going after his ass."

To which Brooks responded:

"It's amazing how people can pound their chests for going after a good player. All-Pro cornerbacks get beat for touchdowns. I just hope people keep going after Trevard Lindley. Keep pounding your chests and go after him."

Probably just my partisanship showing, but I think Brooks got the better of that one.  Now, for the news.
