Agreed. But even the ref tues on the Teddy Hefner show called the ball incomplete.

I think the refs are stuck mentally on a situation they are trained on where a player gets a toe in bounds and then fumbles after hitting the ground out of bounds.
This play was different from the training they are drilled on because Shaq caught it. Drew it in. Then took three steps. He had control for quite a while. The refs are judging their training situation. That catch was different than what they were trained on. They werten't looking at the real play. They were looking at the play they were trained on. They are saying the ground did cause the fumble and causes an incompletion.

It was a simple play: Shaq caught the ball, pulled it in and secured it, took three steps and hit the ground. Play over. The ground cant cause a fumble in this situation.

"We still have no respect for you. None. And, even though this crawls all over you, we still own that azz in our series with you.

But deeper than the aforementioned items, we know we're simply superior to you. We have a better university. We have a better athletics department. And we have better fans. Put simply, we're better than you are.

Regarding your football program, it's Spurrier and only Spurrier. That's it. Prior to Spurrier, your program was $hit. After Spurrier, your program will be $hit. You know it. We know it.

So enjoy your brief flash in the warm sunshine. Feels good, doesn't it? We don't just taste it--we've lived our lives in it. You, however, are like white trash who won a small lottery. The whole world knows you'll be broke again in a few years. "

Sometimes certain Clemson fans annoy me.

Dude...I hope you're right. Thought LSU would, but I truly think Saban will unleash fury.

LSU crossed my mind. BUT I tend to think there is a remarkable difference between LSU and Bama in this situation. LSU could not get up for the Chic fila bowl. Bama may not WANT to be in the Orange bowl, but it's still a BCS bowl. They will be up and ready to play. Also AJ McCaron is a tested QB while Mettenburger was a first year starter. Either way, I'll be screaming ROLL TIDE. Paint the town CRIMSON!!

Look, they won the national championship by beating LSU last year. They are hoping for a repeat.

Silly pussies. Saban will have his team ready for the national championship game. They won't be ready for that.

Why play Bama? Their fans are shooting each other. I hope civility isn't gone forever from public sporting events.

Seriously, we could win 20 in a row and there would still be a large population that spews this crap. I think there are loonies out there that would rather do away with the rivalry than admit they're the little brother now.

Clemson has become "Kyle" on that Cadillac ATS commercial...

Oh hayul yes!! Had a guy tell me that if they had a few more possessions they would have won big. You gotta be shittin me. The reason they didn't have more possessions is cuz we didn't let them. Did we not waste field position at least twice?

A few more possessions and they would have had 8 turnovers.

Are they kiddin'? If the game had lasted a few more posessions they would have had a few more fumbles. Nobody can throw an interception better than Sammy Watkins but my favorite was when there own guy knocks the ball from Humphries on their own punt reception. They musta practiced that in the off season.

for CU losing last Saturday. Just wonder how many SC fans did the same thing in 2008. CU was 6-5 and SC was 7-4 (and the better team in my opinion). SC had 4 interceptions and a punt blocked and lost 31-14; it happens. One the positive side for SC; that probably secured the head coaching job for the head cheerleader.

Quite a few of our Gamecock brethren said that "we beat ourselves" last year after the Florida game. I still see posts suggesting that was a game we should have won. Hopefully, we've heard the last of that argument now that we realize how silly Clemson fans sounds making it.

The OP is right.
Clemson played their A game on defense and, until the fourth quarter, their B game on offense.

We played our C game on offense, and about a B on defense.

And even all that, they still couldn't win.

I think they may hurt Clemson fans the most.
They did everything right...they stopped our run game, their pass rush eliminated the deep pass and their offensive running game was looking good.

And yet they lost focus and committed six turnovers.

Proof, no matter how good you are, if you turn the ball over six times, you aren't going to win.
