Let’s be honest. It was weird. Really weird.

By now, you’ve probably seen Christian Wilkins’ odd touching of Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel in the Fiesta Bowl.

In case you haven’t, here you go:

After that video went viral, Wilkins was remorseful.

“I was being silly, and I apologize for that,” Wilkins said to ESPN’s David Hale. “It’s stuff you do when you’re competing, and I know that’s not a good look. I apologize for that, and I shook hands with him after the game. There was no hard feelings.”

But Wilkins’ teammate, Ben Boulware, had a different reaction to that whole ordeal. During media day for the national championship, the Clemson linebacker was asked about Wilkins’ illegal touching.┬áHe basically chalked it up to “football guys being football guys.”

Here was his rant (via Brian Hamilton):


So yeah. Apparently if you have a problem with another man touching another man’s genitals in the heat of a game, you sucked at football, had no friends or didn’t like getting naked in front of your peers.

It appears Boulware is a big supporter of locker room talk.
