Regarding Syracuse and penalties


Oct 24, 2022, 3:09 PM

I want to say I am shocked by all of the outrage, both from Syracuse and nationally, about the game and how Clemson was "gifted" a victory. That word, gifted, is from a Syracuse grad who is a media friend of mine who is downright angry over the outcome. But I was not shocked. It's a passionate game, with passionate fans and players and coaches, and we all overreact at times.

Me? I just don't look at penalties at this big deciding factor most of the time, because you've got 60 minutes to try and win the game. Both teams had chances to put it away - Clemson couldn't because of turnovers, and Syracuse had chances late but clock management issues from their head coach and an interception by their QB ended it. Also....the Orange had several chances to put Clemson away, up 21-10, and didn't do it.

A guy who covers NC State decided to take it upon himself to interject the fact that Clemson was helped by the ACC office, that there was no way the ACC would let Clemson lose, and that Clemson gets all the calls.

Let's take a look at that fallacy - heading into the game, Clemson was sixth in Power Five of fewest holding penalties called against opposing offenses (I think there were two all year). Yes, with XT and Murphy and KJ and TD and Ruke and Bresee and all that talent - sixth-fewest called against. Someone said maybe one since Wake Forest, which is nuts to me). Here is another great stat - Clemson has been called for 6.3 penalties per game this season, as opposed to 6.4 for opponents. So, the same.

Now, Syracuse...that crew is one of the most penalized teams in the nation at nearly 10 per game. They were gonna get called, especially after just two in the first half, because their numbers say that is who they are. And look, you can call holding on every play. On Clemson. On opponents. But when you have a guy get past you and you get him in a chokehold and ride him like the worst cowboy ever at the rodeo, it's gonna get called. And on the out of bounds play where many people feel like Garrett Shrader should have drawn a personal foul penalty, there were at least two instances of holding.

It goes on all game. Both sides benefitted from calls. Both sides had calls go against them, both good and bad. That's where we go back to 60 minutes of football. I ran into Mark Packer after the game, and I will use a phrase he likes to use a lot - score more points. Don't let the officials dictate it. Score more points.

Blaming officials is an easy rallying cry when you get beat. And it's lazy. And should be beneath some of the people commenting. But that's where we are. Headed to get my kid a Halloween costume - maybe I should make him an ACC official and scare some of the other teams.

Oct 24, 2022, 3:18 PM

the officials did not hand Clemson the game on Saturday. In fact, the next time the officials do ANYTHING to help Clemson will be the first time. Syracuse played two solid quarters of football aided greatly by a host of Clemson turnovers and a plethora of holding and PI no calls by the officials. However, a college football game consists of four quarters, and Syracuse got completely dominated and outplayed in the second half, because champions find the will and a way to win. Maybe the Syracuse offense should have scored some points off of all the turnovers or put some points on the board in the second half. They did neither and, at the end of the day, that is largely why they lost.

They were holding the ENTIRE game but didn't get it called enough in first half

Their biggest gripe was the hit out of bounds which were both good calls.

That always annoys me, blaming the officials


Oct 24, 2022, 3:21 PM

In EVERY GAME there are bad calls against BOTH teams. Like DHood said, with subjective penalties like holding, personal fouls/roughing or PI, those could be called on almost every play. The referees have to allow some leeway in there on those type of calls. Some are more egregious than others, granted, but ultimately, for all of those penalties, it's a subjective judgement call by the official based on his (or her, these days) perspective and angle.

Yes, bad calls can kill drives or renew drives. It happens. Frequently to both teams at some point during the game. But ultimately the game is 60 minutes and close to two-hundred plays between the two teams.

The officials are a part of the game. Sometimes they get in the way physically, sometimes they get in the way with bad calls. They're as much as part of the game as the weather. It's one of those intangibles.

I give the Syracuse QB credit - when asked about it he said that he thought the hit on him was worse than the hit they were penalized for on us, but then he basically said that it doesn't matter - it's part of the game. You shouldn't be at a place where one bad call can kill the game for you.

Re: Regarding Syracuse and penalties


Oct 24, 2022, 3:27 PM

I say the officiating was rather poor. Both inconsistent and when the inconsistencies happened, it was game changing. I said in a different thread was that the ref "allowed them to play" and while that benefited Cuse early on, when they did call something, that also hit Cuse more often since they were "encroaching" moreso on things that were not being called. I think the refs were too lose early on and then had to tighten up. That is going to make folks mad. Heck, everyone is going to be mad.

The hit on Cade was correct but it was game changing. Heck, the defender lowered his shoulder and helmet and made helmet-to-helmet contact. Compared that to an extended arm. That was more of a potential targeting penalty - but they relaxed it for the less costly flag. Now, when you had a Cuse QB being pushed OOB, that flag *could* have happened later. However, for cuse but it was not called (likely because they completely missed some of the most obvious holding at the same time).

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Re: Regarding Syracuse and penalties


Oct 24, 2022, 3:29 PM

My take is this - Syracuse got away with holding and PI throughout the entire first half. I think they believed they could do whatever they wanted and not get called for it. This is why their heads exploded when the were called for a few penalties in the second half. I almost get it. They got away with it so long they thought they could keep doing it.

Re: Regarding Syracuse and penalties

Yeah. I can't understand why Syracuse is complaining about penalties. Going into the game (through 6 games), they were averaging 9.8 penalties per game and ranked 131 out of 131 (obviously the most penalized team in FCS Div 1). So 10 panalties against Clemson just maintains there average through 7 games. That's just how they play.

This is all I want: the head of officiating in the ACC to come on the ACC Network and be shown 3 second clips of blatant holding calls, all at the point of attack that allow ball carriers or scrambling QBs to gain yards or get off throws, and explain to the fan bases why they didn’t see what they thought they saw. Just take a shot at it. Despite what Hood says above penalties, or the consistent lack of penalties called, GREATLY affect the outcomes of games. Just like blatant PI with no call affects games. Call penalties so lazy players and coaches don’t benefit from poor technique or purposeful teaching of illegal technique. Is that really too much to ask?

flag link military_tech thumb_downthumb_up

Re: Wanna see a missed call? At around the 12:00 min time in the


Oct 24, 2022, 4:56 PM

So agree. You would have 6 hour games holding were called like it is in the NFL. Especially the teams with really good lines. But eventually it would cease like the targeting hits have.

The fact that Clemson has had so few through the first part of the year while us fans rack up the obvious holding complaints is disgusting.

Wondering if after the FSU game Dabo had had enough and talked the league. Saying if you don’t start to call this I am calling your officials with evidence for what they are. The worst in the country. ACC officiating is the worst by the way based on games I have watched over the decades.

After re-watch it was a no call and rightfully so. Their feet are tangled and qb is going to trip and fall. Qb is actively stiff arming Clemson player, he pushed off to get room to throw. Lb had every right to keep clawing at his jersey to prevent a first down throw.

Having said that, the hit on cade wasn't that bad either. Probably a no call. The cuse player just hit him too hard and it looked bad. Really, cade is in bounds and running up the line.

If this or that had, or had not happen in that game, it's a moot point if Clemson hadn't put the ball on the ground twice, or if DJ hadn't thrown INT's. The "TRUTH" Syracuse was lucky that Clemson mistakes actually made them look better than they actually were against a Clemson team that repeatedly kept shooting its self in the foot.

Screw-um, that's why they never win any championships, they depend to much on team to hurt themselves, or for the Refs to give them something, and that's why their coach is always on the hot seat, as whole, they can't earn a win in a hard fought game, the way that Clemson has done this past decade, and the world knows that the Refs don't give Clemson nothing!!!!

This is precisely why I posted yesterday that the hurry up, up tempo offense


Oct 25, 2022, 11:47 AM

Needs to be used for all or most of the game. We need to score points. Period. We did it against Wake. Why not against these other teams?

The hurry up offense resulted in a 50 yard Shipley TD run. We seem to always move the ball better/easier when we play fast and keep the opposing defense on their heels.

In the 2 drives after that 50 yard TD by Shipley, we went back to trying to milk every second of the play clock and played slow = punt, then fg. We played not to lose. It’s almost as if Dabo said, “ok we’ve got the lead, I don’t want Cade to have to do too much. Let’s just try and play keep away until the game is over”.

Do like the dham 4th quarter video says, and take away the opposing team’s will to win. Play to WIN.

There is a plus with us running a fast pace offense that we didn't have back when we use to be a hurry up no huddle offense, and that is Clemson has been of late, 2-3 deep talented along the defensive line, and that's a PLUS for a fast pace offense.

The Fact CU is 5th fewest calls for, "tells all"!


Oct 25, 2022, 12:42 PM

5th fewest calls against opponents!

To me that says a lot.

It says, "people out there don't want to see Clemson in the CFP"!

Why? Because every opponent we have played to date has not recruited as well as Clemson. In no way, shape or form did all those teams just "match-up straight up"!

If opponents have just Matched-up so well that the play was allowed to just go; we have done a bad job and the recruiting services have done a bad job of evaluations.

I am specifically referring to WRs being held/interfered with and DLs being held.

Perhaps some of our offensive struggles have been made worse by the fact; teams can hold and interfere with our players. Normally when you have a recruiting advantage; it shows up!

The stats support that "it has not been showing up"! If the opponent can get away with it; why wouldn't they do it? Some of the screens against us early season; there were "illegals down field" not called.

The video shows it - if you think this is just Clemson paranoia! Same with the holding of WRs and DL.
What's the end game here?

Re: Regarding Syracuse and penalties


Oct 25, 2022, 1:06 PM

We outgained them 450 - 291 and had one of our running backs run for 172 yards and another running back go for 94 yards. To complain about the game being given away due to the refs calling throwing a flag on one late hit and not throwing a flag for what you felt was a late hit later in the game is beyond stupid when you were outgained by over 150 yards. Syracuse was up by 11 at halftime and scored ZERO points in the 2nd half. How about blaming the outcome on that?

I'd also argue that the Syracuse defending that was flagged for sticking his fingers on the neck/face of CK should have been tossed from the game.
