Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson wouldn't reveal what will happen to Clemson players if they grab him in sensitive areas during the national title game, but he suggested Wednesday he won't react well.

"They better not try me like that," Robinson told reporters, according to Marq Burnett of SEC Country. "That's all I got to say."

Tigers defensive lineman Christian Wilkins made headlines in the Fiesta Bowl when he was seen grabbing Ohio State running back Curtis Samuel below the waist at the end of a play.

Wilkins' teammate and star linebacker Ben Boulware defended the grope earlier Wednesday, saying Clemson has used the tactic all season in an attempt to throw opponents off their game.

"I know there's going to be that one person: 'Well, I played football and I never did that,'" Boulware said. "You either sucked at football, you had no friends in the locker room, or you were the person that went to the bathroom stall to go change because you were scared to shower with the team."

Boulware also claimed Samuel's lack of reaction to the grab proved that it wasn't a big deal to those who play the game, though a tweet from Samuel later on suggested otherwise.

Alabama and Clemson square off in the national championship game Monday in what will be a rematch of last year's title tilt.
