Clemson lineman Christian Wilkins was caught on camera grabbing a handful of Curtis Samuel’s equipment. His teammate Ben Boulware, himself no stranger to a little extracurricular activity, defended him. He’s annoyed by the criticism.
Boulware is correct, in a sense. Such antics, if not to that degree, are probably familiar to anyone who has played football or attended an all-male high school. Though, whether doing that to an opponent to “lighten the mood” outside a pile as he’s pinned to the ground in a playoff semifinal with about 800 cameras on you is appropriate is a different matter.
