    Where is the pic of the Ga player poking Millner in the eye?

    I re-watched the game last night and got a new perspective on this penalty. Yes the UGA player went to poke Milliners eye, yes Milliner retaliated. But the ref didn't throw the flag at that point. It happened right beside Ritter as he was signaling possession. The penalty came a few seconds later when the UGA player pushed Milliner AGAIN, and Milliner did nothing in return except maybe some jawing. Maybe what he said was enough for the penalty, IDK. But anywho, we still win. Roll Tide

    Now there is a suspension if the SEC office is interested in foul play......

    Yea i agree, I think Millner said something, possibly directly to the ref that drew the flag.

    Nothing was said when Milliner was getting his eyes gauged out.

    However, you're partly right ... On one of UGA's TD drives, on a Gurley TD run, Mosley got grabbed in the middle of the field and spun around and was unable to make the tackle at about the 5-yard line... and Gary's reaction was the refs missed one, but that it "happens".... LOL

    I hate for it to have been a 'Bama player who had gotten away with one like that. I'm sure it wouldn't just "happen"... they would have replayed it a dozen times and brought it up constantly.

    I know they called Millner's number, but I thought the penalty was on someone else (Sunseri?) standing slightly away from the play and saying something. The ref looked right at him and then threw the flag.

    I respected Georgia before Saturday, now I know what most Florida fans could have probably told me before hand, they are a team full of low-life thugs. They deserve whatever pain they are suffering today, So does Richt for turning them into a team full of thugs. They won't be back to Atlanta next year.

    Milliner did push the second time around. I saw it live. At first, I was disgusted. Then, I saw the replay. The old saying goes along the lines of "the second person gets in trouble." Answer me this - what do you expect a guy to do when he gets poked in the eye? First, I'd cry because my eyes would water. Second, I'd push/hit the guy that did it. It's human nature.

    they've been that way since Richt got to UGA. Does no one else remember Odell Thurman bragging about his "kill shot" on Spencer Pennington back in whatever year that was?

    Hate UGA. Always have and always will.

    Looks like this player's name is Sheldon Dawson. The talking heads need to call for his suspension for the next game as well. No doubt if one of our players was caught doing something like this, Saban would have the player writing an apology letter and seated for the next game whether the league demanded it or not. We will see what the "Godly man" leading the Bulldogs decides to do. My guess is nothing.

    Nothing is exactly what he always does, which is why he leads the league every year in penalties and player suspensions.
