As Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson approaches his first Super Bowl, some Wisconsin fans are making sure everyone knows the program that made the star quarterback who he is.

That’s why this trolling billboard showed up in Raleigh, N.C., home of the N.C. State Wolfpack.

Wilson spent four years with N.C. State, but when he left the team briefly to pursue his baseball career, he wasn’t exactly welcomed back with open arms. So, he took his talents to Wisconsin and there he led the Badgers to a Big Ten title and the Rose Bowl.

While you have to admire the trolling by this Wisconsin fan (or fans), it probably would have been more effective if they had spelled Wilson’s name correctly.
