Russell Wilson, From Wolfpack To Badger?

How do you think Russell Wilson would look in a red and white football uniform? Wait, those are NC State's colors too.

The last two days Wilson, a three year starter at quarterback for NC State, has been visiting Madison, Wisconsin and according to it went great.

The Badgers are in need of a quarterback. Third-year sophomore Jon Budmayr emerged as the No. 1 quarterback following spring practice. Budmayr only played in three games last season and will be backed up by a red-shirt freshman and a freshman walk-on.

With Terrell Pryor out of the picture at Ohio State UW put there best foot forward in their pitch to Wilson to become a Badger.

Should Wilson decide to wear a white helmet with a red "W" on the side instantly Wisconsin has a experienced quarterback from another BCS conference that can run and throw. It might just tip the balance of power in the Big Ten Conference in the Badgers favor.

Wilson has visited Auburn recently but according to a source: “He definitely liked Madison better than Auburn,”

It does get mighty frosty in Madison in November though.
