WF’s Dave Clawson makes complaint to ACC about Clemson’s band


by - Senior Editor -

Wake Forest was completely demolished 63-3 against No. 4 Clemson last Saturday.

Demon Deacon head coach Dave Clawson was seen throughout most of the half screaming and jumping up on the sidelines at the game refs. Most observers just thought he was visibly upset with getting dominated on both sides of the ball.

However, it appears that Clawson was actually arguing about Clemson's band as he pointed at them several times as they played while his team was trying to call plays.

“It was an issue that I addressed with the supervisor of officials on Monday, and he agreed with my perspective on it,” Clawson said via the Winston-Salem Journal, “and there was a situation in the game that wasn’t handled the way it should have been.”

“I knew it, and it was allowed to keep happening, and eventually it got fixed but not the way it should have or when it should have,” Clawson said. “You know, so again, that was — I wasn’t happy with it. I expressed that the whole first quarter.

Clawson eventually got the band situation handled and will move on now.

“It eventually got fixed, but it was not — it wasn’t handled the way it should have been procedurally from their end … I had a good talk with Dennis Hennigan, and he agreed, so we’re moving forward.”

Can you imagine if the Clemson band and the fans had stayed quiet during the blowout? It would have probably only been 55-3 win for the Tigers.

This is classic misdirection and taking your frustration out on something else. Hey, that band is really loud...it's not that we are getting steamrolled physically by a superior team.
