What in the world was Clemson's Christian Wilkins thinking?

Wow. Just wow.

Wilkins's apology following Clemson's big win didn't stop people from sounding off on the groping incident.

While some treated the incident as a joke, many wondered why he wasn't charged for sexual assault.

As inexplicable as that groping was, we are equally dumbfounded by his teammate, Ben Boulware, defending Wilkins's actions and asking if it's "really that big of a deal."

Huh? Is he serious?

We're speechless.

Should Wilkins be arrested and charged for this incident?
