Lane Kiffin says Ole Miss football players, staff are 100 percent vaccinated
The state with the lowest vaccination rate in the United States has college football's first known team to be 100 percent vaccinated. Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin told ESPN's Chris Low on Sunday that every player, coach and staff member on the team has been vaccinated, thanks to a program-wide push before the season. The Ole Miss program had reportedly been far from 100 percent vaccinated at the start of the summer, but made quick progress, especially with the threat of a forfeited game due to a COVID-19 outbreak hanging over their heads. SEC commissioner Greg Sankey indicated at SEC media days that schools would face a forfeit if they cannot field a healthy team.
told Finebaum that as soon as items started hitting the field, he told his players to keep their helmets on to stay safe. And while he was happy with how they handled it, he quickly noted that the cops on the sidelines didn’t handle things as well, in his mind.
“Players keep your helmets on and I kind of moved about 5 yards off the sidelines,” Kiffin said. “There were some cops behind me, which by the way, they didn’t do a very good job.”
“Because when I was walking off, I had the cops that are supposed to protect you,” Kiffin said. “They throw a bottle. The cops duck and I grab the bottle. So I was kind of down on our cops.”
Video of the event in question basically confirms what Kiffin was saying. You can see the bottle head towards Kiffin, who grabs it while the police officers on each side of him duck out of the way.
