CBS Sports' Danny Kanell thinks Georgia DB Lewis Cine should be suspended for 'flat out dirty' hit
On Saturday, Georgia sophomore defensive back Lewis Cine was ejected for his hit on Florida tight end Kyle Pitts in the Bulldogs’ 44-28 loss. But it appears some may not think that was a severe enough punishment.
CBS Sports analyst Danny Kanell took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the play after it happened, and he thinks Cine shouldn’t be back on the field for a while because of it.
“That is worthy of multiple game suspension,” Kanell tweeted. “Just flat out dirty.”
For those who may not have seen the play, here’s the hit that caused Cine to be ejected and Pitts to miss the rest of the game:

Cine has been a key part of Georgia’s secondary this season, collecting 31 tackles and a pass deflection in six games, and it would be a big loss for the Bulldogs if he does in fact receive a suspension. However, there hadn’t been any news of potential discipline as of Sunday afternoon.
Despite losing Pitts — who has emerged as one of the nation’s top offensive players — the Gators went on to beat the Bulldogs handily in Jacksonville.
Whether or not Cine gets disciplined, Georgia will be looking to bounce back when it travels to take on Missouri on Saturday at noon ET on ESPN.
