Not all Ohio State players are buying Clemson LB Ben Boulware’s explanation.
The Clemson player, when talking about Christian Wilkins’ awkward grope of Ohio State’s Curtis Samuel during the Fiesta Bowl, said the Tigers have done it all year.
Boulware also said the media blew it up and that it breaks up “the seriousness of the game.” Boulware added that the people who are “freaking out” about it have never played the game.
Well, some Buckeyes players completely disagree with Boulware’s take.
DB Marshon Lattimore said “Naw can’t relate bro!” in a tweet that included Boulware’s thoughts on the incident.

Ohio State DL Tracy Sprinkle also disagreed.
“Don’t know what he talking bout we don’t do that this way,” Sprinkle tweeted.

As for Wilkins, he apologized for the grope and said he was “being silly.”
Curtis Samuel also responded, even including Wilkins’ Twitter account in a tweet.
“If I would of felt that I would of got ejected!!!”
