There really isn't much more I can write about Russell Wilson, a quarterback that no one outside out of a North Carolina seems to know about. Following 368 yards passing and four total touchdowns his Wolfpack are now 4-0 as they prepare to welcome Virginia Tech and Boston College to Raleigh. And they've already knocked off three solid squads in UCF, Cincinnati and Georgia Tech, with two wins coming on the road.
Wilson now has 12 total touchdowns against one interception for the 2010 campaign. And this is pretty much on par with what he's done during his previous two years at the helm. In 2008 he threw 17 touchdowns against one interception. Last year he tossed 31 against 11 picks. His lowest QB rating for a season has been 133.
He may be the nation's best college quarterback.
12 Other Observations from an Interesting Saturday:
1. Last I heard Texas coach Mack Brown remains committed to developing a run game.
2. If you had Terrelle Pryor, Delone Carter and Dane Sanzenbacher in your starting lineup then you get a gold star. If you had those three plus Wisconsin freshman James White then meet me in Vegas.
3. Sure Texas may have been the most overrated team since the Fighting Jim Leavitt's made it to #2 a couple of years back, but there is no way in hell I thought Rick Neuheisel had it in him. A great win for the Bruins.
4. Anyone who watched the Oklahoma vs. Cincinnati game knows that D.J. Woods could really use a hug.
5. As my colleague Chris Bennett pointed out this weekend, this year's Georgia Tech offense bears little resemblance to last year's unit. I realize they just ran it for about 250 against N.C. State, but 5-18 on 3rd and 4th downs combined shows an offense that is becoming predictable.
6. Adam Robinson is the Hawkeye present, while Marcus Coker is the future.
7. BYU, it will get better. With Jake Heaps manning the controls this will be a one-year blip.
8. They may take some lumps during the SEC gauntlet, but there's no way I'd want to play South Carolina or Auburn at any point this season. Both boast a bevy of impressive athletes. Cameron Newton, Michael Dyer, Marcus Lattimore, Alshon Jeffery...oh my.
9. Ryan Mallett giveth...and Mark Ingram taketh away.
10. Like I mentioned last week, Jim Harbaugh ain't messing around, eh?
11. ESPNews' College Football Overdrive could be the best thing in the world.
12. Stay away from anyone associated with Purdue football...you might be struck by lightning.
