Russell Wilson to graduates: Don't throw INT in SB

Print

Russell Wilson gave the commencement speech at the University of Wisconsin on Saturday. Amid the advice on life, overcoming obstacle and perseverance, Wilson tossed in a bit of self-deprecation.

The Seattle Seahawks' quarterback mentioned the most devastating pass of his NFL career.

"Of course, I'm also here to share some things I've learned," Wilson said, via ESPN.com. "Things like, if you're dating a woman that's way out of your league, ask her to marry you. If you can throw a football 80 yards, for some reason, people think that's pretty cool. And if you're playing the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl, and you've got 26 seconds left and you're down by four, and it's second and goal on their 1-yard line, try not to throw an interception. That's purely, purely hypothetical though, of course."

Wilson, of course, is referring to the interception by Malcolm Butler at the end of Super Bowl XLIX.

Wilson attended grad school at Wisconsin after graduating from North Carolina State University.
