If you had to associate Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson with one university, it would probably be Wisconsin, right? That seems to be the consensus, despite the fact that Wilson spent four years at North Carolina State, before transferring to Wisconsin in 2011 for his final year of eligibility.
It is no secret that Wisconsin has certainly claimed the Super Bowl quarterback as one of its own. Just take a look at the team’s official Twitter feed, @BadgerFootball.
Also, there’s this billboard on Capital Blvd. in Raleigh, N.C., the home of North Carolina State University. The only problem is… They spelled Wilson’s name wrong. Check it out.
“Proud to call you one of our own, Russel! #GoBadgers”
It’s unknown who paid for the billboard, whether it be Wisconsin fans, NC State fans or someone else.
