Kentucky’s governor wasn’t pleased about Louisville’s loss.
Gov. Matt Bevin took to Twitter to express his displeasure with the referees after the Cardinals lost to Clemson 42-36 in a marquee ACC matchup Saturday. Of course, he has a bit of Bluegrass State bias on the subject. But check out his message below, and consider if he has an argument.
Tough loss for @UofLFootball tonight…Hard to beat a team that had 18 players on the field in first half…Great game…No quit either side

In a tight game like the one at Clemson on Saturday night, there were so many moments that played a part in the outcome. It’s unfair to blame the officials alone for Louisville’s loss. Still, the Cardinals were flagged 11 times for 104 yards, and the Tigers were penalized on six occasions for 61 yards.
It’s comforting to know governors are no different than die-hard fans everywhere.
