In the latest edition of the College Football Podcast, J. Darin Darst, Adam Aizer, and I discussed the unusual circumstances surrounding Russell Wilson.  Having been granted a release from his scholarship at N.C. State, Wilson has become the latest "college football free agent."  The interesting bit is that while some reports say there is a "95 percent chance" Wilson plays college football in the fall, the Colorado Rockies organization believes he will finish the season with the Asheville Tourists (which ends Sept. 5).  

So where does Russell stand?  According to his comments/apology to the N.C. State fans he just "wanted an equal opportunity to start."  According to WLOS in Asheville, Wilson only asked for the release to keep his options open.  Wilson wants to play in the MLB and NFL, but how does he plan to navigate towards that two-headed goal.  

We discuss Wilson's odd situation, and make some projections on possible landing spots around the nation.  Tune in, and don't forget to check out the full podcast episode as well. 

(Oh yeah, we also briefly touch on Star Wars Day, Cinco De Mayo, and Taylor Swift on the Maxim Top 100.  So don't be shocked)
