Video: Brandon Spikes eye gouging against Georgia

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The most viral of all videos this morning shows Florida Gators linebacker Brandon Spikes literally trying to gouge out the eyeball of Georgia Bulldogs fullback Washaun Ealey during Saturday's rivalry game in Jacksonville.




There's not really a lot to say in defense of Spikes here. His actions seem pretty clear, and even if this was in retaliation for something, it certainly doesn't excuse him. You just dont mess with people's eyes. They're kind of important.

At a Sunday press conference, Gators coach Urban Meyer said he'd have a "serious talk" with Spikes about the incident.

There's already a groundswell of writers saying that Meyer should suspend Spikes himself, and not leave it up to the SEC, using the old "eye-for-an-eye" rationale.
