Lane Kiffin Went On A Twitter Tear After Getting Fined By The SEC

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin was fined $25,000 by the SEC for his public criticism of the conference’s officials in the wake of a blown call in Saturday’s loss to Auburn. Here was the full statement from the SEC...

On the kickoff return in the Auburn at Ole Miss football game at 5:43 in the 4th quarter, the SEC has determined the replay official should have stopped the game for further review of the play. In the football officiating replay process every play is reviewed but, when appropriate, the game is stopped for further review.

Because the play was not appropriately stopped for further review, the necessary slow-motion view of the play was not viewed by the replay official to determine if the ruling on the field should have been reversed.

The SEC Office conducted a review of the play and appropriately communicated its findings above to Ole Miss head football coach Lane Kiffin and other athletics department personnel per conference protocol. However, Mr. Kiffin’s use of social media Saturday following the game to publicly criticize officiating is in violation of Conference Bylaws and Commissioner’s Regulations that govern Sportsmanship and communication with the Conference Office on officiating issues.

Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin has been fined $25,000 for his use of social media Saturday after the game made in violation of SEC Bylaw 10.5 related to officiating in the Auburn at Ole Miss football game of October 24.

It's pretty cool and kinda badass, but I'm glad our coach would never do that dumb shite.

Lane's boat has 3 motors on it that probably cost around 25K each. Sell the boat Lane, send the kid to college.

SEC use of replay review is also real inconsistent and in some cases mind numbing. Its one thing in fast action to miss a call but to watch it in slow motion and uphold a bad call is another. Nothing good comes out of Birmingham.

Inn still amazed, though I shouldn't be at this point, at the mediocrity of SEC officials. Big respect for a coach who calls them out.

Kiffen should not have to say the call was blown. The commissioner should have a press conference every Monday to explain every blown call in detail, then it will stop.

I love it. Their officiating is absolute garbage and they need to be called out on it.
