Because of Lane Kiffin, the SEC may add new policy to pregame warmups
It looks like Lane Kiffin might persuade a league-wide change for pregame procedures.
Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel is reporting that the SEC is in talks about creating a new policy about teams warming up before games in indoor facilities instead of at the stadium, as Ole Miss has done at times this year, including before the Alabama game.
Here’s what Thamel tweeted about the potential new policy:
Sources: The SEC is discussing whether there should be a policy about teams running through their pre-game warm-ups in adjacent indoor facilities, as opposed to in the stadium. Ole Miss has done this in games where it has rained this year, prompting the discussion.

Whether this policy will ban the practice of warming up away from the stadium or make it OK due to COVID-19 is unclear in Thamel’s tweet.
If and when the league decides something on what Kiffin and the Rebels have been doing, we’ll have more answers. For now, though, it seems Kiffin is at least keeping everyone at the SEC offices busy!
