$30,000 and no Brandon Spikes

That's the final damage tally for the Gators following the Georgia game. While the Bulldogs lost 41-17, the SEC picked up $30k by fining Urban Meyer for saying Tim Tebow should have been protected better by officials after a late hit by UGA's Nick Williams. And the media picked up a scalp after forcing Brandon Spikes into suspending himself.

It is interesting to note that the SEC is coming down hard on coaches for critical comments, but they did not come down hard on Spikes or previous athletes. Contrast this to the SEC Baseball policy of two ejections equaling a one game suspension. It's like the SEC just randomly sets punishment, but doesn't that sound about right for a conference with such a proud history of bending the rules?
