Danny Kanell wants Georgia’s Lewis Cine to be suspended for multiple games because of his vicious hit on Florida tight end Kyle Pitts on Saturday.
Cine delivered one of the most vicious hits you’ll ever see on a football field Saturday afternoon. The Georgia defensive back collided with Pitts as the Florida tight end hauled in a pass from Kyle Trask. Both Cine and Pitts took a while to finally get to their feet.

The referees proceeded to make an easy call of targeting for the hit. Kanell thinks the SEC needs to take things a step further, though. The college football analyst wants to see the SEC suspend Cine for multiple games.
“That is worthy of multiple game suspension,” Kanell said on Twitter. “Just flat out dirty.”
That is worthy of multiple game suspension. Just flat out dirty.

Lewis Cine’s hit was vicious, there’s no doubt about it. But a multi-game suspension probably isn’t necessary. The Georgia defensive back delivered a big hit that resulted in a penalty. That’s all there is to it.
The Gators and Bulldogs are engaged in a back-and-forth shootout this afternoon. Georgia got off to a hot start by taking a 14-0 lead early in the fourth quarter. But two scores is a small deficit for Florida’s high-powered attack to overcome.
The Gators quickly erased the deficit to eventually take a 31-21 lead late in the second quarter. You can catch the rest of the game on CBS.
