Favoritism By The SEC Officials

I feel like my limited blogging this season has all been directed towards the bashing of good ol' Coach Bobo. I'll give him a break this week and point out the fact that whoever makes the decisions on suspensions in the SEC offices are a bunch of IDIOTS.

Should Kwame Geathers have been suspended for punching someone last week after they tried to end his career? I think not, but even if you say yes, was what he did anywhere near as bad as Nick "The Thug" Fairley last year against the Dawgs?

Fairely gets and atta boy for trying to injure a player, and Geathers gets punished for defending himself.

The official statement from the SEC was that "any issues would be handled between the conference office and the institution."

The translation: Auburn has been put on alert that Fairley will be suspended if he engages in any more late hits.

The SEC reviewed tape of the Georgia game and several of Fairley’s hits on Murray. Fairley was penalized in the third quarter when he led with his helmet and hit Murray in the back after Murray had already released the pass.

The fact that Fairley was penalized on the play probably contributed to his not being suspended.

Double standard anyone?
