Florida coach Urban Meyer obviously wants no part of a continuing war of words with Tennessee's Lane Kiffin.

Meyer offered several different "no comments" Tuesday when asked about some of Kiffin's most recent barbs. Of course, it was Meyer who fanned the flames following the Gators' 23-13 win when he suggested that Tennessee wasn't trying to win the game and was merely trying to keep it close. Kiffin also took offense to the fact that Meyer brought up how many of the Florida players were battling the flu after the game.

"We're moving on. We're playing Kentucky," Meyer said.

On Wednesday, Meyer was asked on the SEC teleconference how different it was to be coaching this week against a guy, Kentucky's Rich Brooks, who he had a good relationship with and a lot respect for versus what Meyer went through last week with Kiffin.

"The focus has been on our players, and I've never quite experienced anything like that in the past," Meyer said of the buildup to the Tennessee game. "I'd rather stay away from that. I kind of like this, where it's two good teams going against each other. That's what college football is all about."

It's a good thing Meyer likes Brooks. Florida only beat Kentucky 63-5 last season and has scored 45 or more points in three of their four previous meetings against each other in the SEC.
