Yeah I heard that and that is crap. He obviously can't count on them and he shouldn't. They did not have enough time to review two of the sideline catches. Why do coaches have the ability to review if that is your stance. They were certainly not reviewed thoroughly. One by Alford was definitely a catch and the other by Hatcher would have taken many looks and angles to know. It looked like a catch but it was hard to tell if his toe touched before he brought it up again.Just to give an FYI from what Dino said in the pre game for NC. One reporter (Emily) asked about not challenging and Dino indicated that he always ask the official if they are reviewing the play. If the official says yes then there is no reason to waste a timeout. He indicated that all the plays in questioned were being reviewed so he never called a TO to ask for a review. Anyway, take it with a grain of salt. I am more curious was to why they threw three straight sideline bombs before the long FG attempt? All they need was another 10 yards to get into an acceptable FG distance. Dino and staff are really bad at game day management .
I don't think we can count on ACC officials to give us the benefit of the doubt against Clemson. Make the tv show the replay many times from different angles so everyone knows you screwed us. If we don't have our own staff reviewing these immediately to give Dino info and make a decision that is a fail.
