Twitter reacts to Clemson's loss to Pittsburgh
|Saturday, October 23, 2021, 6:55 PM- -|
Clemson lost against a talented Pittsburgh squad 27-17 on Saturday and dropped the Tigers to 4-3 overall and 3-2 in the ACC.
This was the first loss by 10+ points for Clemson against an ACC opponent since 2014 versus Georgia Tech (53 games). It was also the fifth straight game with 21 or fewer points for the first time since 1994.
It was an eventful game as starting quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei was benched in the third quarter after a pick-six on a shovel pass that changed the course of the ballgame.
The Tigers also lost one of their captains Matt Bockhorst to a knee injury, as he likely will be out for some time.
Check out some of the reactions to the loss on Twitter:

Pitt’s HC Pat Narduzzi told me he passed out gold sharpies to the team last night because this victory over Clemson would be a signature win ??— Molly McGrath (@MollyAMcGrath) October 23, 2021

Pitt gonna close out Clemson. They controlled the whole game. They're very much in the mix to win the ACC.— Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) October 23, 2021

Clemson fans: it's just so hard staying invested in a team this horrible, yknow?— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) October 23, 2021

Just noticed that Justin Foster is also not dressed. In addition to Bresee, the WRs, no Foster, no Galloway, Bockhorst looks long-term, lot of OL out. This team is a MASH unit— David Hood (@MDavidHood) October 23, 2021

Maybe Clemson's offensive woes go beyond who's under center... pic.twitter.com/DGDGH14gdI— RedditCFB (@RedditCFB) October 23, 2021
Clemson had everything in front of them still after losing by a touchdown to Georgia, and this team got worse each week. Mind boggling— Tiger Talkin’ (@TigerTalkin) October 23, 2021
