Vanderbilt, Georgia players suspended for a half

The Sports Xchange

One Vanderbilt player and two Georgia players were suspended for a half of their next games by the Southeastern Conference on Wednesday for their parts in scuffles, and there may be further action take on members of the coaching staffs.

Vanderbilt center Logan Stewart and Georgia nose tackle Kwame Geathers were suspended for their incident, in which Stewart dived in the back of Geathers' legs and Geathers threw a punch in retaliation.

Georgia safety Shawn Williams also will have to sit for a half have being pnalized several times for personal fouls.

Vanderbilt plays Army next, while Georgia has a bye this week and faces Florida next week. The absence of Williams and Geathers for one half may hurt the Bulldogs in that game.

The SEC is taking a look at a confrontation between the two coaching staffs and events that led up to it.
