    Spikes deserves to get suspended, but knowing good ol' Urban Myer, he's not about to loose his "leader" on defense. Spikes has been falling in a lot of mock drafts and I think it may have to be his over aggressive "I'm the $hit" atitude.

    I just wish someone could truck the daylights out of him and bring him back to reality! :pop:

    Houston, again.
    Some duffass called into the Charlie Pallilo show today complaining that he shouldn't have got anything because others that bite and scratch and such in the piles for a loose ball haven't gotten punished. Needless to say, Charlie lit him up.

    If this is all Florida is going to do the NCAA should drop a 4 game bomb on his ass.

    Eye gouging like Spikes did was easily a way he could have did some damage to some player's eyes and got them out for a season even. A Senior at that. That should already have a mandatory sentence of a game or two by the NCAA for an offense like that. He could have potentially hurt someone else's career going forward by doing something like that.

    That punishment is a joke.

    If a DL had done that to Tebow he'd probably be in jail.

    As much as I wish I could just tear into a Gator here, I can't. Sure, it's disgusting and obvious, but I can't help to think that this happens all the time. Rivarly game, there has been 2 or 3 personal fouls. There are a lot of dirty plays in football that the camera doesn't catch or show.

    Anyway, it should have been a 1 or 2 game suspension. It doesn't matter though, it is Vanderbilt.

    Suspended a game against Vanderbilt!?

    Suspend him a game against a real opponent instead.

    kind of an odd situation. Ealey doesn't think Spikes did anything wrong, and says he shouldn't be suspended. after he says that, Spikes "suspends himself" from the Vanderbilt game.
