Clemson’s Ben Boulware Defends Christian Wilkins’ Butt Grab

Were you offended by Clemson defensive lineman Christian Wilkins digging deep into Curtis Samuel’s ass during the Peach Bowl? If so, you’re obviously a non-football player loser who thinks this qualifies as sexual assault — well, at least according to linebacker Ben Boulware.

The media questioned Boulware about Wilkins’ extracurricular activities today, and he didn’t mince words defending his teammate, stating he grabs butts and pokes belly buttons all the time to lighten the mood — more from SI’s Brian Hamilton:

Clemson's Ben Boulware has thoughts on people ripping Christian Wilkins for, uh, grabbing a handful in the Fiesta Bowl.

Not so sure about Samuel being cool about it, Boulware:

If I would of felt that I would of got ejected!! #sweetness @cwilkins42

Wilkins apologized after the game for being so darn silly out there:

Christian Wilkins says he's sorry for the… um… extracurriculars w/Curtis Samuel….
