New Footage Shows Clemson LB Ben Boulware Also Inappropriately Touching an OSU Lineman (Video)
After Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins was spotted inappropriately touching the butt and genitals of an Ohio State Buckeyes player, he came out and apologized, stating he was just being goofy.
Clemson Tigers linebacker Ben Boulware came to his aid and said the entire squad has been doing stuff like that all year and it’s not that big of a deal.
“We’ve done it all year to mess with players,” Boulware said. “No one has done it as aggressive as Christian did. We try to be more discreet about it. He grabbed a handful.”“The game is so serious and locked in, and you do stuff to break up the seriousness of the game,” Boulware said. “People are trying to say sexual assault, and people who say that have never played football, never been in a locker room, seen the weird stuff — we’re together every day for years, and you get very comfortable with each other.”“Christian went a little too far,” Boulware said. “But I’ll mess with somebody, poke them in the belly button, grab someone’s butt. People freaking out about that have never played the game or they were losers with no friends when they played. It’s annoying it’s brought so much attention to it, trying to divert the attention that we beat them by 31 points.”“The worst thing I’ve done all year was poke Zach Bailey in the butt. Should I really be suspended because I touched his butt?” Boulware said. “People trying to get Christian suspended for grabbing this dude’s butt — he didn’t stomp on his ankle or punch him in his private parts. He didn’t do anything but grab his butt. Is it really that big of a deal?”
