As punishment for sticking his hand into an opponent's helmet in an attempt to gouge his eyes, Brandon Spikes was suspended by Urban Meyer for the first half of Florida's upcoming game against Vanderbilt. This is ridiculous; Meyer's idea of discipline is a joke.
Compare this to Oregon's LeGarrette Blount, who was suspended for the season after sucker-punching a BSU player after their game. (Blount's case is being revisited by his team and the PAC-10, so he may have his suspension lifed before the end of the season). As bad as Blount's behavious was, I think what Spikes did was worse because the potential damage could have been worse. Had Spikes succeded in his thuggish move, he could have left a man blind. Meyer/the SEC/the NCAA would be justified in suspending Spikes for the rest of the season. The local authorities would be justified in arresting him. Anything less than a 4 game suspension is, in my opinion, a weak response.
