So you're telling me there's a chance. Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema said it today. Russell Wilson may not end up as the Badgers starting quarterback when the season starts.
During his Big Ten media day press conference, Bielema was asked, “You called Russell a potential starting quarterback. Is there seriously a chance he wouldn't be your starting quarterback?”
Bielema responded, “Yeah, absolutely. I was very open with Russell during the recruiting process, You will have an opportunity to come in and show us what you can do.”
“I think that's one of the things that attracted him to our program. We were honest, truthful. My parents said if you tell the truth, you don't have to remember what you said. That's what we said, come in, have this opportunity, take full advantage of it, you'll be the guy that reaps the rewards.”
“I haven't seen Russell Wilson compete one snap competitively in practice. I think I might know what will happen, but until it happens, that's where we're at.”
