Russell Wilsons “Depth Chart” video from his time at Wisconsin is awesome.
I found some free time on my hands yesterday, and found myself on YouTube watching this super old video. I didnt even know it was online, and I havent seen it in at least six years.
Well, Im sure glad I stumbled across it because its another reminder of the amazing job ESPN did chronicling Wilsons arrival at Wisconsin.
I remember Wilson at Wisconsin like it was yesterday. The state was on fire for the arrival of the superstar quarterback, but I dont think anybody thought hed be as good as he turned out.
The man can straight up play some football. I was in the stands when he lit up Nebraska. It was under the lights, the stadium was packed and wed be drinking since sun up. It was gut check time, and we were all waiting to see just how good Wilson was.
He stunned the fans and shot onto the national scene as the next big quarterback. He obviously went on to win a Super Bowl, but I really dont think people are remembering just how electric he was at Wisconsin.
We just need Wisconsin to go find the next Wilson and everything should be gravy.
