Russell Mania

Joe Schad reports today that Russell Wilson is "95 percent" certain to play football next year, and that 12 schools have contacted him since he was released on Friday:

Wilson has been contacted by multiple unidentified SEC schools and hopes to play for a BCS automatic qualifying team outside the ACC, the source said. Among the SEC schools that could be interested in a transfer quarterback are South Carolina and Auburn.

Schad adds that Wilson could report to his new school in June, which would really cut his baseball season short. He's finally starting to hit the ball well, too: .296/.472/.556 over his last 10 games. His full-season OPS is now 20 points above league average, though his average remains low.

Among the schools that have reached out to Wilson, per James Henderson: LSU, Auburn, South Carolina, Ole Miss, Arizona State, Wisconsin. Yep, this is going to get painful. But I'll be rooting for Russell wherever he ends up.

Jim Young has some thoughts on the ordeal, while EDSBS has a guest post from Tom O'Brien in which he lists other things that have disappointed him with their lack of commitment. I have to disagree with TOB on the Wheat Thins/Triscuit issue, though. Triscuits are far superior, in my opinion.
