In a recent interview, Wilson sought to clear that up for the public. “First things first, that’s football; people argue,” Wilson said, before smiling and adding, “But I was right. … I want to clear that up for everybody.” Wilson said the spat was blown out of proportion. “That’s the media,” he said. “That’s how they work. It’s a little argument. If ya’ll had cameras on the sideline, we argue like that every series.
