Was the ground marker correct during end of Louisville game?

The ground marker on Saturday's final fourth-down play against Louisville was placed in a sufficient spot off the sideline because rules don't actually give a standard distance for that marker according to NCAA Rule 1-2-7, a Clemson spokesman said Monday to the Courier-Journal.

"We feel the (unofficial line-to-gain ground) marker, as it's written in the NCAA rulebook, was in the proper spot or in line with the NCAA rules, which don't say a specific distance that it needs to be from the field," Joe Galbraith said to the Courier-Journal.

On the play, a grounds crew member appeared to be cheering for Clemson after the big defensive stop.

"That (need to remain neutral) is something that we will review with the gentleman that was on the sideline for this game and something we'll reinforce with all our chain crew personnel moving forward," Galbraith said.
