    Kicked straight to the dang curb - and most State fans agreed with TOB! Funny how State fans want to claim him as their QB - when they didn't give a flip about him on 4/27/11

    Russell Wilson never will forget the day he was told he no longer was wanted at NC State.
    “It was April 27th [2011],” Wilson said.
    Tom O'Brien, NC State's head coach at the time, had a meeting that day with Wilson and gave him the surprising news.
    Wilson had been the Wolfpack's starting quarterback for three seasons. But Wilson also was playing minor-league baseball, a situation with which O'Brien had issues.
    “But I didn't think he would tell me not to come back,'' Wilson said. “North Carolina State was an awesome experience for me. I graduated in three years and went to grad school. I wanted to finish my senior year [of football] there.
