DT: Was this the greatest wr catch in clemson history?


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 10:25 AM
 

I know it wasn't a huge situation other than a nail in the coffin in a blow out win against state but I dont think i've ever seen a clemson wr make a more impossible catch than this one. Every time i see this pic i still can't believe he didn't at least bobble it. That was very Dez Bryant-esque.


Was an amazing catch

Great catch.

I think Jamie Harper's vs Auburn was just as good.

Yep a great catch I was just praying at least a FG a win meant

a certain bowl bid which was a BIG deal back then. There were far less bowl opportunities then nowadays!

4th and 16


A much more meaningful catch. Not as hard though.


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 10:57 AM
 

It was harder for Tajh to put that ball where he did, but Nuk makes that kind of catch all day long.


Re: A much more meaningful catch. Not as hard though.


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 10:42 PM
 

The catch Peake made from Watson in the Georgia game was similar to the catch Nuk made from Boyd in the Georgia Dome. A blinding side catch, through a tight window.

For me, Fuller to Butler . Amazing catch and the effect on the Carolina crowd was wonderful to watch.

Knowing you are going to get rocked over the middle makes catching a lot more difficult.

Posted: Feb 22, 2015 9:58 PM
 

We actually won the 4th quarter, and did well in overtime... we had them beat. An injured Kyle Parker missed a wide open receiver by about 2 feet which would have won us the game against the eventual undefeated natty champs. A couple plays later, Cat Man kicks the worst kick of his career.

Ouch!!! I felt that lick shake my computer. One more catch like that this year, and a sure lock for the 2016 NFL draft. 1st, 2nd, or 3rd team. He will be drafted.

Yes, this catch is probably the best in history in terms of sheer athleticism and actual receiving ability... BUT this catch would probably not be viewed by most fans b/c of the nature of that game. The implications of the catch were essentially nominal... My vote for one of the most incredible/meaningful catches was Nuk in the Chick-fil-a Bowl on 4th and 16. That throw/catch blows my mind... and it meant so much b/c it propelled us to a huge upset win.

those are two separate categories, strictly talkign about


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 2:42 PM
 

impossible catches.

Jamie Harper and Jerry Butler are the other rivals to this one. those were abnormal catches.


Jamie Harper at Auburn is the best I've ever seen

Posted: Feb 20, 2015 11:54 AM
 

I don't know why that play didn't get more attention. I guess because we lost.

Still to this day the most amazing catch I've ever seen by any Tiger

Re: Jamie Harper at Auburn is the best I've ever seen

Incredible clutch catch on the road! Harper was a rb.


Absolutely top 4 or 5 in my lifetime. IDK about all time.


Posted: Feb 22, 2015 11:35 PM
 

Butler and Allen were pretty special. YouTube "Mike Williams Amazing Catch 2014 NC ST game" which I believe was his 2nd(?) TD catch that day. That catch took every inch of his 6'4+" frame. One of the more difficult catches from this past year for sure. Although probably not a top 15, It'd hold a candle to quite a few of the legendary catches in CU history.

Re: DT: Was this the greatest wr catch in clemson history?


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 1:16 PM
 

I say Butler-It looks like he caught the back half of the ball behind his head as he is turning and it also won the game against usuc.


In context: Jerry Butler or Rod Gardner vs. USuCk


Posted: Feb 20, 2015 1:22 PM
 

or maybe Nuk's catch in the Peach Bowl on 4th down.

Out of context, a few that come to mind:

Aaron Kelly TD vs. FSU in '05 (?)



Jamie Harper TD vs. Auburn in '10

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vHb7HSYPc80

Nuk had some nifty catches at CU, eg:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efONDa7SbyM

Peake's one-handed TD snag vs. SC State last year was great too

Agree with Butler and Rod Gardner. Would add Perry Tuttle in Orange Bowl. Younger fans won't have seen those.....great moments to be a Tiger!

Catch in the Orange bowl was beautiful. That catch and the one he made against Maryland as a freshman was my favorite


Re: Martavis Bryant's in the Orange Bowl was fabulous also!

circus catch!


Something about this play that was very disappointing was

Posted: Feb 20, 2015 3:44 PM
 

the commentary by the announcers. They were too busy hemming and hawing over whether it was a catch or not to even sound excited at the amazing play that had just happened. Go back at watch it. After 2 or 3 minutes of "wellll I don't really see any evidence that would overturn this call...blah blah blah..." they finally said something like "but what great effort by Williams"

Terrible broadcasting in my opinion. I hate when they get too caught up in the technicalities to enjoy the incredible plays that happen in the moment.

That being said, I'd list the Williams catch second only to Jamie Harper's TD against Auburn in 2010. That was incredible

Aaron Kelly's last second catch to beat Boston College

[1]
Posted: Feb 20, 2015 3:54 PM
 

Is by far my favorite catch. Not only did it stop an incredible Matt Ryan comeback, but it also secured the ACC Championship game for Clemson. I can't believe this catch isn't even mentioned.

Matt Ryan was drafted in 2008. We didn't make an acc championship game til 2009. I think you might be thinking about someone else.


I think you're wrong

Clemson never beat a matt Ryan lead team to clinch going to the acc championship game. Clemson's first acc championship game was in 2009. Matt Ryan was already in the NFL.

I don't know what I'm missing. He said that Aaron Kelly made a game winning catch to beat Boston college at death valley, while stopping a matt Ryan comeback to secure an acc championship.

When Aaron kelly played against matt ryan and BC at death valley in 2)05, we lost 16-13 in ot.
In 2007 when clemson played matt Ryan and BC, we lost 20-17.

So how could Arron kelly make a game winning catch against BC to clinch an acc championship game at death valley?

vs. BC. Truly wish I remembered it differently, and hope I'm wrong....but I have a distinct recollection of walking out of DV that night.

on that play by Cullen Harper, on a rope from 50 yards.

Not the one in 09' that he dropped going in for the TD?


Posted: Feb 22, 2015 11:46 PM
 

That's the Aaron Kelly catch I hate remembering. Never been so dejected leaving DV in my life. I'm not remembering Kelly having a game winner vs. BC unfortunately. Please post the link if possible, because as great as he was for us, I remember that....of course! Not fair to a guy like him, but I do.
