That's a push off. There's no doubt about it. That's literally the definition of a push off. It should be 3rd and 15, not 7-0 Clemson. But of course, Dabo Swinney's best friends, the referees, let it slide and it's already 7-0 Tigers.
I can't believe this is happening again. Two of the best teams in college football, and these Foot Locker employees can't just let the players settle it on the field. Well, it looks like it's going to be another uphill battle this year. Tough to win when you're playing 11 on 18. I'm not going to make excuses and neither is Ryan Day, but the refs just gifted Clemson 7 points to start the game.
