This is adding insult to injury.
Safety Jayron Kearse made a game-saving play late in Saturday's win over Louisville, chasing down Louisville receiver Eli Quick to make a tackle that saved a touchdown. Clemson's defense held on fourth down, but defensive coordinator Brent Venables gave Kearse a minus on the play.
Senior corner Garry Peters explained it this way: "We were in cover two, and Jayron was supposed to be high on the other side of the field. But he got out of position, and thank goodness he did because I don't know if he would have caught up to him otherwise. I was just watching and hoping he could catch him. But because he was a little out of position, Coach Venables gave him a minus on the play."
Kearse told us it as miscommunication.
"I got the wrong signal. I didn't see it was a Cover 2," he said. "I look at it as a blessing, because if I had been outside the hash I don't know that I could have caught him."

As you've probably seen by now, a Clemson fan somehow found his way onto Louisville's bench in the middle of the game last Saturday. The university was not happy about it, and has offered up the following statement:
The individual had an authorized credential issued for a group allowed on the field for halftime. He is not a member of that group, and action will be taken against those individuals who were authorized to distribute the credentials. As an athletic department, the security of our fans and visitors are of the utmost importance, and we will continue to evaluate and reinforce visiting team bench security in future games.
