Brandon Spikes Eye Gouge Video: Gators LB Accused of Gouging
Most of the time Brandon Spikes appears to be one of the best college linebackers in the country. During last night's game against Georgia, however, the Florida linebacker looked more like Moe from The Three Stooges. During the Florida-Georgia game, Brandon Stokes appeared to gouge the eyes of Georgia running back Washaun Ealey after making a tackle.
As any football player can tell you, things can get pretty nasty in a pileup, just ask anyone who has tried to recover a fumble. But even by those standards, the Brandon Spikes eye gouging looks pretty nasty.
Florida coach did his best to diffuse any controversy stemming from the Brandon Spikes eye gouge.
On his teleconference Sunday morning, Gators coach Urban Meyer said he hadn’t yet discussed the play with Spikes. “I’ll talk to him today, Meyer said. “He’s a very emotional player. If that’s the case, I’ll have a very serious talk with him.” That talk should end with Meyer suspending his best defender for Saturday's game against Vanderbilt
Brandon Spikes has yet to be disciplined for the eye gouge although it is possible he may face a suspension from the SEC.
