    I think they are the only ones with this bragging right, but I'm honestly not sure. I can only think of 1 other school, Florida State, with more than 1, but Christian Ponder and E.J. Manuel don't really count. ;-) Anyways, if I'm wrong and some other school has this as well, I'm sure someone will correct me.

    Go Pirates
    Go Tarheels

    BTW, can i assume you are counting Wilson as an NC State QB and not a Wisconsin one?
    Anyway, I'm glad to see Glennon get on the field. Hope your Philip Rivers loses though.

    I like the Pirates. Great logo, nice stadium. Saw them beat UCF in a great game 2 years ago. UNC, on the other hand.... ugh

    Wilson is an NC State alum and did a year of post-grad at Wisconsin so yes he counts. :) Even if we counted him as both NCSU and Wisconsin, I still don't think Wisconsin would be able to claim they had 2 QB's starting in the NFL. Of course, you and I probably went to as many classes at Wisconsin as he did, but his degree is from NC State.

    Yes, I'm rooting against Rivers this weekend (obviously). I really have no emotional connection to him since he was gone before I arrived, but I saw several exciting Wilson and Glennon games at Carter-Finley. When Tampa drafted Glennon, I knew he would start by the end of the year. Then when the whole not-voted-a-captain thing happened with Freeman, I think we all saw the writing on the wall.

    Hoping the Pirates beat the Tarheels this week. But at Chapel Hill probably means it won't happen.
    Yeah, ECU games can be fun.
    I've been to a ton of game at Carter-Finley. It can get wild there.

    Definitely pulling for Glennon.
    I just recalled that NCSU had Roman Gabriel way back when too.
    It's off how some schools have more NFL QBs than others.

    You could boast that more good NFL QBs have come out of NC State than both Texas and Texas A&M combined.

    Don't want to start too much trouble here though.

    I know I am a bit biased, but I really think it is the nicest college stadium in the state. ECU has a nice stadium, UNC's stadium is atrocious, and I've never been to Duke for football, but when I see that stadium on TV it looks like a high school facility. (Never been to Appalachian State either)
    Don't forget Torry Holt..!!
    Heh. In terms of NFL success, I really don't think that could be debated, though I think Tannehill has potential for a good NFL career. Obviously, though, no NC State QB has had the level of college success we've seen from those schools.
