The Clemson University football team shocked the University of Alabama football program with a big 35-31 win in the college football championship game earlier this month. During the game, senior linebacker Ben Boulware recorded four tackles and one pass deflection.
A couple weeks after helping the Tigers win, Boulware also picked up his first big troll of the year.
.@DesmondHoward remember saying this? was thinking of a place to put my National Championship tattoo and what better place than my achilles
Well done, Mr. Boulware. Well done.
As you can see in the graphic above, ESPN analyst Desmond Howard said the Achilles’ heel of the Tigers was their linebackers. During the championship game, Clemson’s linebackers used that as motivation.
Three of the top six tackle totals in the championship game came from linebackers: Boulware – 6 (t-2nd), Kendall Joseph – 6 (t-2nd), Dorian O’Daniel – 4 (t-6th).
However, the placement of Boulware’s new tattoo makes the whole comeback even better. Not to mention, it’s not like the linebacker got a simple Clemson paw tattoo. No, instead he got a tattoo of the CFB Championship trophy to make it all better.
Howard hasn’t responded, but Boulware probably doesn’t care too much. After all, he’s doing all he can to prove the haters wrong.

What makes Boulware’s Twitter so great is his ability to troll so hard in those two tweets. He’s trolled hard before, too, as with his defense of teammate Christian Wilkins’ nether region groping. The thing is, he probably got his troll mentality from the program he played for.
It's a powerful thing. pic.twitter.com/1ZLxMGSClR

Bravo, Clemson and Boulware. Bravo.
