Danny Ford vs. Maryland (1985)... what exactly did he say?


Posted: Sep 15, 2013 9:37 PM
 

Can someone please provide a transcript of what exactly Danny Ford says here?
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZFKXOwEORBo

I understand bits and pieces:

"You missed this call... You're a SOB... 25 seconds ran off....[Ref: It's been a tough game, Danny], No it ain't been a tough game...."

Can someone fill in his other words/statements?? Did he say the F word at some point? I've always heard rumors that he did, but I don't hear it here (maybe edited out). Thanks!

He may have substituted for "screwed", and we did get raped up there. Officiating cost us back to back games!

I think you're right..

He does say something about "last week". Perhaps we had the same crew two weeks in a row.

He did, right as they turned the mic away

I think it was less the Maryland game...

and more the embarrasing, pathetic, uninspired loss to Wake Forest in Winston Salem the week after...

GO TIGERS


I know, but the grumbling started after a terrible 2nd half

Was that the game that caused him to have to sit in the booth the next year?

He was referring to a call the same crew made for UNC the week before on a completed pass that was never close to being a completions. So he started out his tirade with " you screwed on a call last week ".

If you watch the touchdown that Maryland scored, three things happened on the play. The left guard jumped early, the pass was never caught and the 25 second play clock had expired. Ford was pissed.


That is correct.....was that UNC game up there where

I was an 8 year old kid sitting on about the 35 yard line in the lower deck on the opposite end of the stadium but on the same North side.

Remember that play to this day.

My friend and his dad who we rode to the games with were around the 10 yard line in that endzone. Said it was not a catch and it surely wasn't we got screwed.

Still ticks me off


Here's What Danny Said..................

Danny: alright that's two weeks in arrow we've been screwed. The play clock ran out! I saw the son of a b**ch.............
Ref interrupts: Danny it's been a tough game..........
Danny fires back: it ain't been a tough game throw the effing flag!
The whimp official stood there until Danny was back on the sideline. He THEN threw the flag on Ford. He wouldn't do it while Danny was near him.

I was 12 and standing at the fence at the bottom of the hill right in front of the play. The ball went right thru the MD receivers hands. Not to mention the play clock was at zero from a good 4-5 seconds before the ball was snapped.

This was also the game were several Clemson players ganged up on a couple of MD players on the Clemson sideline after the game, punching, hitting with helmet, etc. Lead to several players being suspended (as well as DF) for the next MD game.


Here's the Danny Ford Show the next day . . .

Danny and Jim Phillips very candidly discuss the officiating . . . couldn't get away with that today:

Clemson, especially during Maryland games. Anybody remember this "TD" catch during the '09 game right before the half. They even reviewed this one and still called it a TD.

By the way.... I got this photo from the Maryland web site after the game. Guess they're proud of sticking it to Clemson!!
