Edition 49 “Gator Joke”

Brandon Spikes suspended for the first half of the Gators upcoming joke of a game against Vanderbilt..are you kidding me!!

I cannot believe the SEC approved of this suspension, nor am I happy with Urban Meyer.  Meyer always stresses the student athlete aspect of his program.  How he not only wants to win National Titles, but how he wants his players to come out being good people.  Well Urban, you really dropped the ball on this one.  Watching the replay of Spikes trying to gauge the eye of Georgia running back Washaun Ealey makes me nauseous every time. 

Each time you see the replay, you realize how blatant this act was.  Spikes you are a big man trying to sneak some extra love at the bottom of the pile right?  I hope somebody does the same to you the next time at the bottom of the pile.  But the only difference is, I hope they actually blind ya!

I mean this is such an utter joke.  Oregon running back, Legarrette Blount, was suspended for the entire season for punching a guy in the jaw.  Now I realize that suspension has since been shortened but he has missed over 2 months worth of play for punching a guy.  Sure punching a guy is wrong.  But trying to blind a guy is much worse.  Not only did Spikes try to blind the Georgia running back, he was sneaky with it and tried to hide it as if he did not do anything.

Urban, please man up and suspend Spikes for the duration of the season.  Your team still has the inside track to win a National Title.  But what type of message are you sending to your players and the state of Florida when your best defensive player pulls a stunt like this and you sit him for one half against a team that you will easily beat by over 30 points?

Live up to  your so called “classy” name and suspend him for the duration of the season.  You know what, better yet, why doesn’t the saint himself Tim Tebow step up and say something.  Tebow knows right and wrong and he knows how wrong this whole situation is.

So I am waiting for Tebow, the guy with the real class on that roster to speak up..

So my question for you all today is how long do you think the suspension should be and do you think this lame punishment fits the crime?

Stay tuned for Edition 50.

  1. Believe me, it was messed up. But if this was a player on UC’s team I think you’d be singing a different tune. Urban knows better than to risk his season, no matter how sketchy that may be. It’s a business and while they say the responsibility of these coaches is to prime their players for life, ultimately the best of the best are just looking to win. It is a sad truth.

    VERY EXCITED to see what you have to say about the Kentucky Wildcats exhibition opener tonight for basketball. I know you’ll be all over it… haha

    • Matt, it is horrible. And had it of been a UC player I would of been all for sitting him for the year. Good teams can win without their best players. You have to have that next man in mentality and coaches like Urban Meyer and Brian Kelly stress that they have student athletes who they are trying to make better men. Urban Meyer has thugs and this just confirms it. I gave him the benefit of the doubt on all the issues with the law his players have had over the past few years, but this is the icing on the cake that he is sitting him for one half for this malicious act..it is not all about winning anyways. When all is said and done, less than a percent of these college football players will be playing pro ball..

  3. If it was a UC player he would have been suspended for a lot longer. The thing is Spikes is one of the “stars” for the beloved Florida Gators! How could anyone dare suspend a Florida Gator? Half a game against Vandy?! are you kidding me?! Absolutely a joke. i know that at UK they would condone the actions of their star players but at a quality school they would be more worried about their reputation and discipline instead of winning games. Everyone else is doing it the right way why can’t Florida?

  4. It is a business guys. Plain and simple.
