Everyone has top 5 favorite plays, but we all have those plays that you wished didn’t happen or could have a “do-over”..

I have a lot of candidates and need to think about this one.  I know that damned “Punt-Rooskie” will be on the list somewhere.

This could be a fun thread.

Lol that’s easy.  My Freshman year and Matt Ryan caps off a 17 point 4th quarter @ Clemson with a deep pass to a wide open receiver with 1:46 left to play going up by 3.

This play took away a division title in front of the biggest crowd of the year during what seemed like my loudest season (and first) season as a Clemson/FB fan. 


It probably just saved us another loss to VT who beat us 41-23 already, however we lot the TO margin 4-0 in that game too and out gained them by 380-210 so who knows. 

If you look at things even deeper it was probably good for the program because we wouldn’t have fired Bowden if he had won the ACCCG 1.5 years before.  So thanks Matt Ryan. 


The next one is probably Bama’s last score in our first NCG with them.

In our first National title game with Bama, we had momentum and they literally broke us with the 95 yard TD run..

I think this cost us the Natty and a 15-0 season

2004 against the mutts. Time running out in the 4th qtr and down by 3 and Reggie ball spikes the ball on 3rd down then throws the ball away on 4th down. Bet most remember that bone head crap.

A lot of plays in a lot of games over a lot of years. 2017 as a whole seems the most fresh.

I was there for the Punt-Rooskie - ouch!
The on-sides kick by Bama.
Missed field goal to lose to USC in 2006
The bad snap that called back a field goal against Auburn. We went downhill after that, and Auburn won the NC. 
Take your pick from the Tommy Bowden era.
