After reviewing film of the incident, head coach Phillip Fulmer suspended Toeaina for the Kentucky game and suspended Gandy for the first half. Clausen, who is nursing a knee injury, may or may not play.
Although Fulmer wasn't happy with the the highly publicized helmet-throwing incident, he wasn't ALL THAT disturbed by it.
"I've thrown my headset," he said. "I've thrown my game plan down in anger or frustration. I pick it up, put it back on and go to work. I'm sure any of us that have played a sport have been disappointed or frustrated."
Although Toeaina started each of UT's first 10 games at right tackle, Fulmer downplayed his absence for Game 11.
"You miss a starter but it's the same as having an injury or something like that," the coach said. "We've had to overcome that all season long at different positions. I think we'll be OK."
Toeaina's spot will be filled by redshirt freshman Ramon Foster. Foster started the opener at left guard but hasn't started since. At 6-6 and 340 pounds, he's better suited to tackle than guard. Still, he hasn't played much tackle this season.
"Not a lot," Fulmer conceded, "but he's worked quite a bit at tackle. Arron (Sears) could go over there but Arron's knee has been bothering him quite significantly the past couple of weeks. Eric (Young) is not a guy you feel like you can flip around. Ramon could play four of the five positions for us."
Asked to assess Toeaina's performance this year, Fulmer replied: "Albert's had a good year. He's been invited to the Senior Bowl, which is a reflection of what people feel he can do. Albert improved a lot from one year to the next. You wish he'd been in the program for four years, rather than just the two, from a football standpoint."
