My Clemson friend tells me this morning that JD had a helmet on helmet hit on Boyd that should have been called and that Larry Williams has made a big deal about the no call. Can someone enlighten me on when this happened. I never saw any bad hit or the announcers discussing it.
I know what he is talking about. I think it was when Boyd threw it right to Holloman on interception. It could have been called roughing the passer or helmet to helmet but it was very close and marginal. Clowney was lined up in middle and not on his usual end position.
It was on the interception. It wasnt helmet to helmet either, it was more of hands to the face. As JC was trying to swat the pass/maul Tahj his hands came right down into his helmet and facemask. Tahj took a decent shot on the play and i could see the play going either way in the instance but nothing dirty about it.
Matt Millen made the comment after the replay that it looked like Clowney went helment to helment on Boyd.
The replay i saw Sunday looked like he pushed him in the shoulder pads as he was releasing the ball.
He did but it did not get called. Just sending him a message.
It was more like double hammer fist on top of his shoulder pads and their facemasks touched. I was surprised it wasn't called, but it wasn't bad by any means.
It was on the Brison Williams interception early in the 4th quarter. It was borderline at best. I will say that the two pass interference calls against them were pretty bad. At least they were consistently bad on both sides because the PI on Legree was a terrible call too.
Millen made sure to go back a point it out. He seemed upset that they didn't call it.
Just Taters tatin'. I love how they are complaining about the 2 pass interference calls on them...the 2nd of which WAS a bad call. But they are too STUPID to realize that they got an interception after those 2 intereference calls. If not for those calls, we kick a 37ish yard FG...so the calls actually probably saved them 3 points. The bad interference call on us actually mattered...it negated great field position and momentum...we woulda had it at the 50.

I thought they hold on that return was extremely weak. It's a hold in the truest sense of the penalty, but with the way they call it now, I was shocked that one was called. Shaq barely engaged him before the flag was out.
Also the tater player pushed Shaq hard right in the head DIRECTLY in front of the official.....no call.
Just tell Taters that the pass int calls saved them 3 points all said and done....maybe then they STFU.
He's also used to NFL games where refs throw the flag if you sneeze on the QB's head.
they were pretty ticky tack the whole night... the personal foul on Ronald Patrick was a push in the back on a defensive lineman at the end of the play.... I don't even think the defensive lineman felt it. Not a whole lot there, imo
That said, I thought there were 2-3 interference calls that could have been made against Clemson on those dump down routes to the backs and receivers in the first half.
We had a TD called back and a few other bs penalties. Part of the game when you have SEC refs. If they really were better, they would have held us on that last TD drive and then scored with their "high powered" offense
WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!! They are too damn soft already, now they are whining about no calls.
When M Davis went out he was hit helmet to helmet and there was no call, screw them.
Who cares what they say to make themselves feel better!?? We BTFO of them

I remember a no-call on a push off. Karma sucks, don't it?
This. Clowney trying to affect the throw. Looked like he couldn't completely pull up and slammed both hands onto Taj's shoulder pads along with minor facemask to facemask contact. Taj fell but got up quickly without making any gestures for a penalty. Good no call IMO.

I thought I saw him hit Boyd hard on the shoulder pads also. He seemed, to me, to come down with both hands hard. It would not have surprised me had a penalty flag been thrown. But then again, no flag was thrown on Boyd's Superman pose either. Ask Johnny Football if he didn't get one for that pose.
It was late, violent, deserved, enjoyed,
Speaking of no gestures for a penalty, go back and watch Legree's overturned INT. Nuk isn't even looking for a PI flag, he just started walking off the field.
None of what we did was as bad as Hall's cheap shot on Bruce, IMO.
Wealth is the product of man's capacity to think.
There are no evil thoughts except one: The refusal to think.
actually the 1st int call on tate was correct. they blew the 2nd one. worst call of the nite tho was on Legree int. that was an egregiously bad call.
Also, 4 holding calls on us???
