Bad calls, horrible calls and missed calls, almost all against Clemson.

I see that the LSU coach played at Northwestern St, and was a GA at NW St and McNeese. Also was at Nicholls St.

Especially the targeting call. I saw several other hits closer to targeting, mostly by LSU, that were not called.

I believe it was a PAC-12 crew, so I'm really not all that surprised.

I was expecting to see some pearl clutching over LSU’s Neck chant.
“He has the physical ability, plus that intangible you can’t coach — leadership skill,” Reid said. “You can’t always find it. But you feel lucky when you find someone who has it. He has it all. He’s Dave Dickenson — one of greatest quarterbacks we’ve had here — in a bigger, stronger, more athletic body. That’s Travis Lulay.”

I had no dog in the fight, but that offensive PI call was so bad I thought the ref had been bribed or extorted!

The LSU receivers have all had acting lessons.

The Backjudge was Joe Johnston from Missoula. I believe he's an ex-Griz. MouseGriz or Blue Pony should know.

Joe didn't play football here, and is originally from Butte. Lives in Missoula now. Great guy.

100% right and one of the best Butte guys I know

He could be a NFL ref before too long.

Grew up with Jiggers. Great guy, provided plenty of fun at the Mo Club/Bodegas back in the college days
So Let me get this straight.....Muslim terrorists fly planes into buildings and we are not supposed to judge all Muslim's for the actions of a few. A few crazy Americans commit heinous acts with guns but it is OK to condemn all gun owning Americans.. there is our congress for you.

Always found it a bit fascinating that Joe has made it so big with his major college football reffing. He didn't play football in high school, but he was the 125 lb Class AA Wrestling 2nd place finisher at state for a loaded Butte High squad (won state by 27 points). Butte's 10th straight state championship....
72-39-5 against state

The targeting call against #46 for Clemson, Skalsky (SP ?) was not only a terrible call, IMHO, but it also totally changed the outcome of the game. His replacement, #15, the DC's son I believe, was almost NEVER around the ball, nor did I see him make a solo tackle. It appeared to me that he spent the balance of his time in the game completely out of the plays. I think that just plain took the wind out of the D for Clemson.
