The two hot topics in the wake of the National Championship game just days away have been one of the teams offensive coordinator getting fired after leading the team to an undefeated season, and the other teams being questioned about essentially committing sexual assault on the field. 2017 is off to a rough start.
A Clemson player was caught dropping an Ohio State player doing his team’s game vs Ohio State in the College Football Fiesta Bowl semifinal. After being called out on it, he said they’ve been touching opposing players in the privates and poking them in the butt all season, all in fun.
Well, another video has surfaced of Tigers defensive lineman Christian Wilkins poking a Buckeye lineman in the butt no no reason whatsoever.

“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?”
