Ohio State fans (and some in the media) are crying about the play calling.  They are incredibly salty from this loss…

Here’s the bottom line..

tOSU fans are hanging this game on 2 calls:  The Ross non-catch fumble recovery for TD that was overturned and the targeting…

Let’s set aside how much defensive holding the Buckeyes were getting away with..

4 Red Zones with no TD’s

That stupid Roughing the punter..

Maybe the worse was going 3 and out at the end of the second Qtr allowing Clemson to run a 2 minute drill and put them back in the game.

Ohio State could have put this game out of reach had they scored TD’s in the Red Zone..

Clemson made the best adjustments and that was the difference

Yup, the red zone trips without TDs is what they really should be harping on.  The penalties are a bail out for that fact.  Our defense tightened down when it had to, their’s broke.  They have no case.  It shouldn’t come down to a penalty call for your fate.  Their WR also ran the wrong route at the end as well, could of had a chance.  And let’s not pretend they had plenty of opportunity to put us out of reach in the first half.

That was a great game. Clemson took a solid punch in the face and got up and fought back to win. It wasn’t pretty but it was a gutsy win. I agree it was a rough game. Those guys will be healing some bruises after that one.
