Ben Boulware steps down as CEO of Clemson's Beard Gang

Ben Boulware's fan favorite beard is gone

Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware has had one of the most impressive beards on the football team this offseason and was once a proud member and self-anointed CEO of the infamous 'Beard Gang' at Clemson.

Boulware spoke with over the weekend about his once glorious beard.

"I want to shave it so bad," Boulware said. "I look so ugly. I look homeless," he said. "I do the best I can with trimming it and combing it, but there is only so much you can do. I look disgusting, and I know it. You don't have to tell me."

The massive beard has been shaved off, sadly, to start anew.

Boulware said on Monday to the media that he looked like a "little baby" with regards to the missing facial hair and detailed his reason for shaving. As Boulware gave his interview, members of Clemson's offensive line (aka Beard Gang) made catcalls from the background and called him "Bailey" Boulware.

"Going six months and looking like crap," Boulware said over the din. "It was cool but I looked disgusting. I crumbled. I lost my manhood and I have to step down as CEO of the Beard Gang. It was just annoying. I had to pull my beard back to brush my teeth. I look like a little 12-year old."

Boulware said he shaved after reading TigerNet's story about the beard.

"I did it at 11 o'clock last night," he said. "I was contemplating my life. I was back and forth and then I just went at it."
