Former president Bill Clinton has given his two cents on the offensive pass interference at the end of last weekend's Notre Dame-Florida State game, disagreeing with the ACC and siding with the Irish.
Clinton was speaking with a Notre Dame fan at a recent event and said he felt for the team's supporters, who have been outraged by the call that they feel stripped them of their rightful win.
Just met Bill Clinton. He said "The ND-FSU game evoked an emotion in me that I never expected. Sympathy for Notre Dame. Terrible call"— Tom Mendoza (@TomMendozaTalks) October 23, 2014
Clinton also added that he and former Fighting Irish coach Lou Holtz are both big fans of Brian Kelly.
Bill Clinton closed our conversation with "Love your coach. Lou Holtz and I are good friends and he agrees this guy is just terrific."— Tom Mendoza (@TomMendozaTalks) October 23, 2014
Since the game, the ACC's officiating coordinator has who contends the proper call was made on the field.
