Holy cow!!

Check out the new 90 second spot that Levis has dedicated to Russell. Fantastic!

    Russell will always be my favorite Wolfpacker. Yeah he singlehandedly won some games for us as well as being very responsible for some of our biggest losses but Russell has always stayed positive and never lost his demeanor. What a freaking role model for today’s youth.

    What a tremendous young man. I am so proud of what he has accomplished and wish him nothing but the very best. I grew up a NY Jets fan, I now find myself pulling for San Diego and Seattle. Go Figure. Thank You Russel for all of your contributions to the Wolfpack Family.

    imawolf-I am a long time Jet fan and pull for the Chargers and Seahawks also. When a QB out of your school is playing in the NFL it is unlike any other position.

    Russell Wilson will always be my favorite Wolfpack player for many reasons. Two years ago I stated he would be a starting QB and what is amazing is not that he is but how many State fans watched him will us to victory and still doubted he had a chance. It was all based on the criteria for a NFL QB.

    A truly great role model for today’s young people. A true student-athlete. I wish him the very best. GO PACK!

    I heard Warren Moon, HOF QB and S’Hawks announcer, really talk RW up today on Petros & Money. I’m rooting for Russell, but I still hope GB beats Seattle 🙂

    EDIT: Moon mentioned State and Wisconsin when talking about RW’s college career.

    I have the greatest respect for Russell Wilson and also Coach O’Brien. It was an impossible situation and I am glad that Russell got his shot. He certainly proved that he was NFL material when all the pundits and scouts were pooh-poohing him.

    I also think that it is somewhat ironic that JR Sweezy is on the line protecting him. JR has not recieved the noteriety that Russell got (unfortunately he did receive some from the press and the local LEA’s for some unfortunate lapses of common sense).

    Having said that, I have been following the comments on the Seahawks fan sites. They are beginning to come around.

    One THING does bother me. If you view his player profile or bio, WISCONSIN is listed as his School. There is NO mention of NCSU. There is plent of room for a Wisconsin/NCSU entry.

    So, I will still try to catch his games, but he did spend three years with us and we supported him through thick and thin….maybe we didn’t have Wisconsin’s line….but I went to every home game he played in and one of the Bowl Games. NEVER ONCE did we show any disrespect for him….no matter that he might not have used the best “football” sense in some of his heroics.

    He is about the closest thing to watching Philip play….and you NEVER knew what would happen.

    Just my opinion….others might not share it.

    Adventurous, I generally agree, but one thing I’ve yet to see anyone mention that is certainly a counterpoint, is that Steven Hauschka lists NC State, yet it’s the exact same situation as Wilson, only in the opposite. Hauschka graduated from Middlebury (an outstanding small college) and played a fifth year at NC State. As far as I know, he holds no degree from here.

    ^ I believe it is NFL policy to list the school from which the player entered the NFL on the official player profile.

    Agree that RW is a great role model.

    He’s also a no brainer for endorsements.

    “He’s also a no brainer for endorsements.”

    Ashton doesn’t hurt either, as Levi’s cameras obviously noted. She get’s more air time in the 2:30 version. He’s also has a miniature beagle named Penny that should get some air time in the future.

    I’ll always be a RW fan. I wish him the absolute best in Seattle (except when playing the Panthers).

    “Russell Wilson keeps getting bigger”

    So he can see over the offensive line now?

  13. ancsu87 09/19/2012 at 10:38 PM #

    He was a 2-star recruit out of HS. Amazing!!!

    Love Russell Wilson. That game against Miami his first season as starting quarterback was absolutely amazing. Like Rivers, he never played with a quality defense like we have now. Wonder what he could have done with a good defense. That was Wiscy’s downfall last year.

    I was in Seattle a couple of weeks ago (during preseason) and the city was all consumed with Russell. He was talked about on all sports shows and in the newspapers. He is really loved there. What is even cooler is that he has no fear in displaying his faith. In a far-left city like Seattle that is no mean feat.

    I will pull for him except when he plays Nate Irving and my Broncos.

    Love the message of the commercial. Reminds me of the Dove soap series “I’m ____ and I’m comfortable in my own skin.” Amazing how we’re starting to see marketing with substance.

    Fun Question: Who will be the next NC State Basketball player to strike it big in the pros like Philip or Russell?

  17. Ed89 09/20/2012 at 1:57 PM #

    My bet is CJ Leslie or Lorenzo Brown…or both.

    RW was an example of what a student athlete is supposed to be like.

  19. packgrad2000 09/23/2012 at 5:52 AM #

    Only NC State could have two once-in-a-lifetime QB’s like Rivers and Wilson (and less than a decade apart) and still be perpetually mediocre.
