Wisconsin Badgers: 3 Reasons QB Danny O'Brien Should Transfer to Wisconsin

0 of 3

    Maryland Terrapins quarterback Danny O'Brien is scheduled to graduate this spring and has been released from his scholarship, allowing his transfer to another school to play football.

    O'Brien is an excellent quarterback candidate. He was named the 2009 ACC Rookie of the Year and still has two years of eligibility remaining

    The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports O'Brien is strongly considering the University of Wisconsin along with a few other schools.

    Here are three reasons why O'Brien should attend the University of Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Has Better Uniforms

    Clothes make the man. If this is true, Wisconsin is a better fit for O'Brien.

    The Wisconsin Badgers football team has classic uniforms that befit the tradition of the university and its football program.

    The Terps' uniforms look like a NASCAR flag threw up on a table cloth that was subsequently wrapped in a checkers board worn by a clown.

History Repeating Itself

    Russell Wilson's success as a transfer also from an ACC school showed that it's possible to resurrect a college career at Wisconsin.

    In his only season with the Badgers, Wilson was pleased to find himself as the starter and captain of a team that won the Big Ten championship and played in the Rose Bowl game. None of which he would have experienced at his former school or any other.

    O'Brien will have the same opportunities to succeed as Russel Wilson. O'Brien struggled this past season under a new offensive coordinator at Maryland and is looking to regain the promise he once showed.

    O'Brien has a potent offense with a Heisman candidate at running back in Montee Ball and a Big Ten championship contender again next year in Wisconsin.

Madison Is the Best Sports Town in America

    Madison, Wisconsin is often in the running in discussing the best college sports town in America.

    If O'Brien doesn't want to take my word for it, take the word of ESPN's Scott Van Pelt, a Maryland native and alumnus of the university, by clicking the video above.

    O'Brien will have the best all-around, on-the-field, off-the-field college experience at Wisconsin. If he's good enough to go pro, he can do that from Wisconsin. If he's not and just wants a degree from a great school while having a great time, he can go nowhere better than Madison, Wisconsin.
