Suspensions Abound In UK-UT Game

Kentucky-Tennessee week has turned into “Suspension Week” in the Bluegrass and Volunteer states.

For the Big Blue, junior defensive tackle Mark Crawford has been suspended for violating team rules.  He has started five games this year and has 24 tackles for the Cats.

Sophomore cornerback Martavius Neloms was already scheduled to miss the first half of Saturday’s game after he was ejected from UK’s game with Vanderbilt two weeks ago for fighting.

For the Big Orange, sophomore defensive tackle Montori Hughes has been suspended today for academics.  Derek Dooley says the loss is big “because we’re so thin and unproductive at defensive tackle.”  Hughes had just 16 tackles for the Vols this season.

Meanwhile, quarterback Doak Raulston has been indefinitely suspended after being arrested for DUI over the weekend.  Raulston is sitting out this season after transferring to Knoxville from Louisiana Tech.

Tennessee Benefits Twice From Fighting In UK-VU Game

It seems Alabama won’t be the only team to benefit from another squad’s fist-fighting ways.  Tennessee will be aided by the suspension of two players who tossed punches in last weekend’s Kentucky-Vanderbilt game.

This Saturday, Vandy receiver Umoh Udoh will sit out the first half against the Vols.  Then next week — thanks to Kentucky’s bye week — the Vols won’t see cornerback Martavius Neloms for the first half of their game with the Wildcats.  Udoh and Neloms both threw punches at one another during last Saturday’s UK win.

Alabama, of course, will face an Auburn team next Friday that will have to sit defensive linemen Michael Goggans and Mike Blanc for a half due to the punches they threw against Georgia last weekend.

I can’t remember another SEC weekend that produced four suspensions for fightings.
