Swinney on Boulware's comments about grabbing players

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney spoke to the media on Saturday morning and was asked about the provactive comments that Ben Boulware said recently about Christian Wilkins' grabbing of a Ohio State playmaker Curtis Samuels.

"Ben is a bull in a China shop, and he answered it like a bull in a China shop, Swinney said. "It's unacceptable, and he apologized to his teammates and to me. He knows who we are. That's not what we're about. We don't teach that kind of stuff. We play the game with great passion and will to win, but it was inappropriate. It's just not what we do."

"That stuff [backlash] kind of annoys me," Boulware said during Clemson's media day on Tuesday. "The game is so serious, and it's so locked in out there, you try to do stuff just to have fun, to break up the seriousness of the game. Please are trying to say 'sexual assault' -- people that say that have either never played football, have never been in a locker room and seen the weird stuff. We're together every day for years and years and years. You get very comfortable around each other. I know there's going to be that one person: 'Well, I played football, and I never did that.' You either sucked at football, you had no friends in the locker room, or you were the person that went in the bathroom stall to go change because you were scared to shower with the team. We do that stuff just to have fun out there, just to mess with the team."
