Found this great piece, N.C. State’s Mike Glennon learns from brother’s experience at Virginia Tech, by David Teel from the Daily Press in Hampton Roads, Va. which I thought deserved its own attention:
No matter that Wilson was surrounded by superior weapons — State had no Montee Ball in the backfield — and threw for fewer yards. No matter that Glennon’s protection was spotty.
Making matters worse: With two games remaining in the regular season, the Wolfpack was 5-5, fresh off a brutal defeat at Boston College and on the verge of a fourth losing season in coach Tom O’Brien’s five years.
Glennon didn’t panic. Summoning lessons from his older brother Sean’s rocky career at Virginia Tech, he sparked an improbable, season-ending, three-game winning streak.
“I learned what it’s like being a college quarterback (from Sean),” Glennon said last week at the ACC’s preseason media gabfest. “At times, it’s great. But other times, it’s pretty tough.
Sounds like Sean helped his little brother quite a bit in coping with last year’s Russell Wilson comparisons. Who knew that Tyrod Taylor would end up helping us one day, even if only indirectly?
