The state of North Carolina already has beef with Ohio over the whole “First in Flight”/”Birthplace of Aviation” Wright Brothers quarrel. Looks like they may be picking a battle with another state, Wisconsin. First it was a billboard, then Sconnie Nation responded with one of their own, and now NC State is showcasing Russell Wilson memorabilia in its trophy case.

We love random rivalries here at Gamedayr (see: Aggies vs Seahawks), but this one feels a little weird. Like State is reaching. I asked a colleague what he thought about the trophy case and below is the unedited Skype response.
your move wisconsin
watch the badgers erect a statue
i remember the first time one of my school’s former players won something
let’s go ahead and just create a building at UF for all the super bowls, olympic atheltes, nba champions, etc
come on nc state, you’re better than that, even if it is for recruiting purposes
like the girlfriend that’s trying too hard
Okay, then. Your move, Wisconsin.
