Seems the only person who did not think so was the ####### replay guy

Unfortunately Dabo is not free to speak his mind about the refs lest he get fined. It's a joke. They are untouchable. Somebody needs to give the refs "the business."

Dabo actually came pretty close in his presser.

There is a big drop off in the secondary without Smiths senior leadership. That was a terrible call. He was clearly in the pads and did everything possible to move his head so it was not leading with the helmet. I urge anyone and everyone to voice their opinions to the commissioner etc. There was several questionable calls but the calls were definitely slanted against CU!

And you think the commissioner gives a fat rat's #### about a bad call on Clemson? Really?? I would agree with you, if Swoffy weren't the dude.

No, we will have Peters, but Robert Smith has been temporarily emasculated.

Peters had a stiff and solid argument, I'm sure it was a hard sell though. Too bad we couldn't come to a different agreement. I wonder if Peters found out if the call would stick for the next game making Smith suspended for the first half of the game.

Not sure of the rules. Can officials overturn a suspension

After it was confirmed on the field? For sure not targeting on that call.

Yes, conference officials have the power to either reduce game suspensions or add additional penalties if they deem it appropriate after the game.

IMO, Dabo needs to register an official complaint on that call. Smith should be reinstated, the ref on the field should be suspended a half game instead of Smith, and the official in the replay booth should be FIRED. He's an incompetent idiot for confirming that.

link

I don't fault the official on the field


Posted: Nov 7, 2014, 12:52 PM
 

They are taught to call the targeting penalty on anything that's close (particularly now that they have the ability to even overturn the 15 yard penalty) and let the replay official decide whether it is or isn't. I can see how during live action, and possibly from his angle, that the field official may have thought it was targeting. The replay official however should be suspended for at least a game and retrained on the targeting rule.

Yes they can and they will. They did the same thing to a player from Tenn this season. It was overturned and he was allowed to play the entire game.

Should be overturned. That call gave them another first down


Posted: Nov 7, 2014, 12:30 AM
 

yet again, put them in scoring position, and on a worse night, could have also cost the team the game.

The craziest part is that even if it was overturned, Wake would still have gotten the penalty yardage and a first down. That makes zero sense. That rule must change.

The rule did change if it's overturned the penalty is called back as well as the player can come back the changed the rule this year after complaints last year

Didn't know that. That's good news...but not for Smith. Only way to review that is to watch it at full speed. That was a clean hit. It's football for goodness sake.

Yea I def agree I Forsure thought they would overturn it he hit the wake player right in the chest with his shoulder but I swear they didn't throw the flag til the wake player didn't get up just bc he knocked him out the game doesn't mean it was a dirt hit

Is there a possibility that the play stood because Smith left his feet, rather than it having anything to do with where he hit? Otherwise, it was a clean hit.

No it wouldn't. That rule changed. If it's overturned the penalty goes away. Saw it earlier this year.

If I'm not mistaken, rule has changed and if it is overturned the yardage and 1st down are also taken back.

An apology from the ACC office, not just on that call, but on several other pass interference calls on Peters. That apology probably won't ever happen, because its the ACC. Something needs to be said or done by Clemson to address the obvious jobbing that happened tonight. I know sections 12 and 13 were very vocal in their displeasure. It was arguably worse than a Ron C officiated game.

I've been wrong two times, but this isn't one of them.


This call and the PI on Peters should be used for training

[1]
Posted: Nov 7, 2014, 8:08 AM
 

as what not to call. No way in the world that was targeting and that PI on Peters was awful. So the receiver can run straight at the defender, make no effort to go around or away and the QB can throw it 15 yards beyond and get a PI call? Thats BS. I might, repeat MIGHT be able to understand it if the ref called holding on Peters, but not PI.


These officials should miss out on their next assignment and bring up someone from a high school league to do better.

Very poorly called game, period. The Targeting call was just the apex of crappy calls. Officials were as incompetent as Ron Cherry, and I never thought I'd say that.

Idiot in the booth needs to lose his job however.

The helmets don't even touch.

There's no such thing as a stupid question, just stupid people who ask questions.


I wouldn't have if the referee hadn't waited 10 seconds


Posted: Nov 7, 2014, 10:34 AM
 

after the hit to throw the flag. The referee threw that flag because the right end wouldn't get up and that is complete garbage as a referee. If several referees saw the hit and didn't call it then it was obviously clean but to come in and on your own assumption just throw a flag because a player is bell aching is a pile of #####. I don't even think that referee saw it yet he was the one to pull the flag. Regardless he's a dumbarse even if he did see it apparently he saw nothing wrong with it which is why he didn't throw the flag. But the booth guy really should be fired, you cannot miss things that bad on national television and what makes it worse is you can't possibly miss or mistake that when you can see clear as day even on the full speed clip he hit him with his shoulder pad and no part of his helmet touched him much less his helmet and the wake players helmet didn't touch robert. You know good and well a coach in the sec would be still flipping ##### over that and would come out and call it a terrible call because they do all the time yet in the acc the officials are way more protected and I don't understand why. If you can't take the heat and accept the backlash of your mistakes then don't be a referee, what does a coach standing up for his player and calling a referee out hurt? The referees feelings? Give me a break. Danny ford for acc commissioner

There is an article in the Post and Courier about this and it says that when they agreed to review any targeting penalty, that it will stand if the penalty is upheld. Before the reviews, there was a chance for them to change their mind, mid-week, but not anymore. This is clearly BS - on a flagrant level.

http://www.postandcourier.com/article/20141106/PC20/141109542/1032/clemson-notes-robert-smith-ejected-on-controversial-targeting-call

"An ACC spokesman confirmed to the Post and Courier after midnight that while on-field reviews to appeal ejections were made permissable in 2014, that rule change also did away with lengthier mid-week reviews from the league office, which perhaps could have excused Smith's first-half absence in Clemson's next game."
