N.C. State's freshman quarterback Russell Wilson began the season by getting knocked out with a concussion. It's been all gravy ever since. Yesterday, he became the first freshman quarterback named to the ACC's all-conference team. Today, he was named rookie of the year.

Among his signal accomplishments: He passed for 1,769 yards and led the league in touchdown passes and passing efficiency. Most spectacularly, he threw only one interception all year, and none in the past eight games and 226 passes. Grayson Currin recently posted an appreciation.

And from Chapel Hill comes the news that the Tar Heels, who until three weekends ago still entertained Orange Bowl hopes, will instead play in Charlotte's Meineke Car Care Bowl on Dec. 27.
