Actually there was. It was flagrant defensive PI. He was holding the Clemson player all the way down, lost his grip and fell.

yeah lets not pretend that the Clemson guy didn't push off....

Did you watch the replay? He didn't push off at all.

I saw it real time and it definitely looked like he pushed off...

of course it was no worse than the PI that nullified an interception by LSU.

I was away on that play and didn't see it. But LSU was doing PI on nearly every play. Rarely called.

Should have been a close LSU win, but the Pac 12 refs helped LSU beat the point spread.

Congrats to LSU. Better team tonight.

Refs were horrible both ways, no effect on the ballgame. When you get beat, you get beat and we got beat.

Work starts tomorrow for out 6th straight playoff appearance. 14-1 is not bad for a rebuilding year, but losing still sucks.

I just checked the stats and penalties LSU had 11 for 118. Clemson 7 for 78.

Including that awful PI call on LSU when they picked off Lawrence.

Maybe you think it fair if LSU got all the flags?

Dabo has built an amazing program at Clemson. If you can keep him from leaving for Alabama, and if the ACC stays soft, you will win another CFP title for sure.

Clemson dude pulled him down by the right side of his jersey.

Ever heard of "lies, damned lies and statistics?":cheers:

They should have gotten more and they got breaks on critical plays. Flagrant pick play on a TD pass. Fake offensive PI on a Clemson TD pass. 30 yard penalty on Clemson for blindside block when the Clemson player was entirely in front of LSU player. Never reviewed the play where the back went out of bounds, giving LSU an extra 20 yards. Did review (and overturn correctly) a Clemson completion. Never reviewed 2 probable targeting calls on LSU while reviewing (correctly) a targeting call on Clemson.

If it wasn't Pac 12 refs, who are known for their incompetence, I would have thought some gamblers got to them.

Right, and holding on every play and roughing the guy with the ball on every play, too, huh?

So you are color blind. It was the LSU player who was holding the jersey and lost his grip and fell down.

They let a lot of holding go on. On that first TD pass, the LSU tackle had the defenders armed hooked. That usually gets called holding even in the Big 12.

I don't have a stake in who won. I just hate the gross incompetence of the officials. And it overwhelmingly hurt Clemson.

Both teams got some bad calls do their way. LSU got breaks on the phantom PI call on Higgins (should have been a Clemson TD) and also the LSU receiver in the first half touched out of bounds with his hand and that was missed.

But Clemson got some as well - the phantom PI on the LSU defender when he picked off Lawrence in the 3rd. And as for Tee Higgins being flagged for a blindside block on that big pass to the tight end, Clemson ended up scoring on the drive anyway, and I was surprised Higgins wasn't reviewed for targeting, it looked like he made helmet to helmet contact on that hit, in which case he wouldn't have been around later to score later TDs.

Overall, as Kaplony Balony said, it was a bad game by the refs and both teams got screwed. But suss that out and they still flagged LSU a lot more than Clemson.

LSU was the better team all season and the better team last night. But the refs definitely made it less close last night.
