He's the same ole' Russell Wilson and that's a good thing.

Russell Wilson doesn't have a Twitter account, although there is a fake one @RussellWilsonUW. The profile gives away how legitimate it is. Ramblings of the Former Second Baseman for the Asheville Tourists and Savior of the 2011 Wisconsin Badgers.
Yeah, that sounds like what Russell Wilson would say.
He's a man who takes it "one play and one day at a time." Wilson uses that quote a lot with rolling eyes and chuckles from some in the media. But I'll take an athlete who is not a self-promoter and doesn't give a hoot about how many followers he or she has on Twitter.
Russell Wilson has earned followers of college football with his play. His game is about to reach parts of the country that have never seen him play. Thursday night, Wilson will start for the Wisconsin Badgers on national TV against UNLV. Sure he played plenty of games on national TV with NC State but do you think the folks in Wisconsin or the Big 10 payed much attention?
They will now...every pass, every play. Especially his new coach Bret Bielema. "I'd seen him on TV," Bielema said. "I wanted to find out what kind of person Russell is. Any time you see a three-year starter leave a program as a senior, you have some questions."
But they were quickly and positively answered then reinforced when his teammates chose Wilson a co-captain. "He meshed really well with the guys," receiver Nick Toon said. "He came in, and everybody really liked him."
Before practice one day, Toon challenged Wilson that he couldn't throw a football from 40 yards away and hit the goal post. Russell just smiled and let it rip. Ting!!, a completion.
Russell Wilson is a man of guarded words but he delivers on the playing field.
Keep up with a statistical comparison of Russell Wilson and Mike Glennon throughout the season.
