What is the worst officiating call in Clemson history?

[1]
Posted: Jan 22, 2019 3:25 PM
 

Heard something similar on the radio this morning but for all of CFB.

Worst officiated game might be the Pitt game 2 years ago, but what was the worst call in Clemson history that resulted in a game loss.

said, I can think of more non calls that should have made. Shoot, our DLINE the last two years was constantly being held, sometimes by two guys at the same time.

The bad call that gave Maryland a game-winning TD on an incomplete pass and the 1985 ACC Championship, and subsequently got Danny banned to the coaches box by the conference the following season at Maryland for being picked up on TV cussing at the officials.

This is the one I was thinking. I was at that game and it still ticks me off.

Yep-1985. Danny was caught on mic after the game cussing out the refs...awesome

First one I thought of too. That call was insane!!!

2019 white level member

Multiple calls on that one. The reason

Danny was so mad was the same crew worked the previous week when we lost to UNC on a ridiculous pass down to the one yard line that the UNC WR caught the ball, held it for a half second, was hit by our DB, he dropped the ball, and our DB recovered. So, the call should have been either a completion and a fumble, or incomplete. The ref called a completed pass and forward progress stopped,first and goal at the one with less than a minute to go. UNC scored a TD to win 21-20.
Same crew the next week against Maryland. Danny had enough.


To add to your description. The receiver for UNC was facing

the UNC QB, squared up. At the instant the ball hit him in the chest, he was nailed in the back by our Safety. The ball popped out immediately and the receiver was standing straight up! Incomplete or fumble with Clemson recovery were the only two options....or so we thought. Refs ruled the receiver was down immediately upon contact...

Maryland game is the one for me too.

Amen. I've never been so mad. And neither has Danny!***

Receiver did not have possession. They called a TV timeout, but TV decided not to take it. Danny runs out on the field to explain to the ref why it was not a catch.

Also, IIRC, that whole game had a lot of bad calls, bad


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 3:50 PM
 

spots and no-calls go against the Tigers. It was obvious that the refs had their marching orders from the conference.

Just football? I think Pitt was horrendous for sure including MW7 being out of bounds while touching the ball but they still gave the possession to Pitt. But the 1985 BLOWN call on the field for Maryland to lead to a Clemson loss was horrendous!

If anything in Clemson sports the Duke vs Clemson basketball game when the refs put significantly too much time on the clock that led to Duke scoring the game winning basket has to be up there.

Yeah, the Duke basketball game was not only a blotch call like the Maryland game but rather a concentrated effort to bend time and space to hand a meh Duke team a win.

Was that the Clemson Uconn Game?1990

In the words of Kirk Herbstreit during the Pitt game "Thats now 21 unanswered points due to questionable calls".

Duane Heydt and his crew were alter suspended, likely for conflict of interest as Duane Heydt was founder and CEO of a company called "Tegra Analytics" whose biggest customer is the University of Pittsburg.

We have been victims of some bad officiating by ACC refs over the years. I was at the Pitt game two years, and that was bad enough.

The worst ever goes back a long time to Chapel Hill in 1965. UNC was up either 3 or 4 points, and the Tigers came to the LOS with first and goal at the heels' 1 yard line. A TD would win the game, and there were 25 seconds on the game clock, but we had no time outs left. ACC referee Lou Bello stood over the ball those 25 seconds and refused to let the Tigers run a play. The clock ran out with Bello still standing over the ball, and we lost the game to UNC.

That was a long time ago, but that was the worst act by a ref that I have ever known.

I agree, I've seen that trick at other games. Back in the 60's it happened to Marshall twice, on the road with a chance to beat a more connected school.


Interception turned catch vs BC - 2005/2007 maybe?


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 4:22 PM
 

I remember a game vs BC where we intercepted a pass only to have the call reversed on replay due to "simultaneous possession". Can't remember the year, but was thinking it was one of the heartbreaking losses to BC toward the end of the Bowden era.


I can’t remember the year....it was a while back....


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 4:29 PM
 

But a game winning catch by a tarheel that hit the ground and he caught it on the first bounce. And it wasn’t a close call. The receiver tried to catch the ball running up the sideline and he knocked it down and it bounced up and he caught it at waist height! I bet some old timers remember this. Probably in the 70’s. Impossible to miss that call... but they did!


Tate George anybody?


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 4:33 PM
 

he did a whole lot of stuff in 1.0 secs. Caught ball, came down with it, caught his balance, spun around, AND shot.

Dammm I remember I was a freshman at Clemson on spring break in Daytona in the nasty bar it’s 80/20 uconn kids. That was a terrible ending of a basketball game but the beginning of an interesting evening.

1986ish at Death Valley. Maryland Offensive lineman jumped before ball snapped. No call. MD scored.. Danny went irate.


MD in 85 or any of the phantom holding calls vs GT 2009***

with a golden parachute. That was a horrible call.

Sure we would.


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 8:02 PM
 

Tommy was destined to be fired with or without a contract extension. He wasn't taking another job he was just extorting enough money to sit on his lazy asz for the rest of his worthless life. The sumbich knew Clemson football program had fallen all to hail.

Tie:

Bobby Bowden somehow getting the clock stopped after the puntrooskie with no time-outs left...

Coach K getting 3 seconds or so put back on the clock to prevent a Clemson victory in Cameron

Most recently and besides the Pitt game, I would say

the Orange Bowl vs Ohio State in the 2013-14 season.

15 penalties for 144 yards against the Tigers and I remember being angry the whole game.


The catch II....signed classof09

Oh wait, you meant a Clemson loss....

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

I forget the year..but Clemson was playing UNC...


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 5:32 PM
 

the Valley with Woody Dantzler at QB and Julius Peppers was at UNC. Tommy Bowden spent the whole game complaining that Peppers(who was dominating the game) was lining up in the neutral zone on EVERY play(obvious when I saw my tape of the game when I got home, pretty obvious in the stands). No calls. UNC wins in an upset. Fastforward a week and UNC is playing Duke at Durham. Julius Peppers gets called three times in the first quarter for lining up in the neutral zone, five times altogether, is not a factor and Duke wins. That has po'ed me ever since.

For me personally it would be 1999 at nc state. 2 touchdowns after clear delay of games where our players stopped playing. We lose 35-31 and officials get suspended. Back to back pass interference calls on first round draft pick antuan Edwards at Virginia in 1998 walking them up the field for the game winning kick 20-18 would be a close second.


The Maryland game in the mid-80's by far. I dont


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 6:33 PM
 

remember what the call was but Danny Ford went ballistic which cause Danny to be suspended.


Re: What is the worst officiating call in Clemson history?


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 6:40 PM
 

The worst call I have ever witnessed against a Clemson football team occurred in 1965 against UNC in Chapel Hill. Late in the 4th quarter, our wide out clearly caught a pass in the end zone, took 2 steps and ran out the side of the end zone. He was very much in bounds when he caught the ball. The refs ruled it out of bounds. That TD would have won the game for us. Following the game, Coach Howard sent the game film to the ACC offices in protest.

1985 football vs maryland they blew 3 calls on one play resulting in ford going on the field

A long time ago, TB years...BC game


Posted: Jan 22, 2019 7:38 PM
 

I can't remember what the play was but whatever it was was so obvious on "replay" but we got screwed BIG TIME. Wish I could remember the specifics but we ended up losing the game.
