Dogs, 'Dores hit with suspensions after Saturday chippiness

Two key Georgia starters and one from Vanderbilt received half-game suspensions from the SEC today, stemming from unpleasantries between players and coaches during and after the game.

The Bulldogs won 33-28, but now UGA losesk noseguard Kwame Geathers and safety Shawn Williams for the first half of next week's Florida game. Vanderbilt center Logan Stewart also has to sit for a half.

No word on how the SEC plans to handle the post-game contretemps between Vandy head coach James Franklin and Georgia defensive coordinator Todd Grantham. This is not Grantham's first trip to the rodeo. Last year he was reprimanded for giving the choke sign to the Florida kicker, just before he booted the game-winning field goal against Grantham's players.

Vanderbilt's Stewart took an unbelievable shot at Gathers's knee from behind. He should have received a much greater punishment.

6:36 - I don't know; Grantham is such a chump that anything up to cutting his leg off might be approved of everywhere outside of Athens.
