Tim Dougherty suspended two weeks

New, comments

Louisville's special (don't say needs, don't say needs) teams took yet another hit this afternoon as Steve Kragthorpe announced that starting placekicker Tim Dougherty has been suspended two weeks because of "conduct detrimental to the team."

Dougherty took over for freshman Chris Philpott in the second half of the Kansas State game and promptly drilled a 36-yard-field goal, still his only attempt of the season. The St. X product and Purdue transfer is also 4-for-4 on extra points.

The suspension likely means another shot for Philpott, who has missed two extra points and all but one of his three field goal tries, and a closer look for barefoot freshman Jon Ryan Payne.

No word on what Dougherty did to warrant the wrath of Krag, but you shouldn't have to look too hard for the most popular rumor.

So, yeah, beat Memphis.
