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 ,” 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.
