Georgia's RB Thinks Spikes' Suspension is Unwarranted

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia running back Washaun Ealey says he
doesn't think Florida linebacker Brandon Spikes should be suspended for apparently trying to gouge Ealey's eyes in Saturday's game.

Florida coach Urban Meyer on Monday suspended Spikes for the first half of this week's game against Vanderbilt after the defensive captain stuck his hand in Ealey's helmet and appeared to try to stick in fingers in Ealey's eyes.

Ealey says he doesn't agree with those who have said the suspension was not stiff enough. He said on Tuesday Spikes "shouldn't, I think, get suspended at all."

Top-ranked Florida beat Georgia 41-17. On Monday, Spikes issued an apology, saying there "is no excuse for my actions."
