Right after the University of Nevada QB was hand-picked by Jim Harbaugh in the 2011 draft, the Chronicle sent a reporter to Turlock to learn about the rookie. Conclusion: "Look, he's a 4.3-GPA guy, from Wisconsin, with a pet tortoise. If you're looking for a story about a player overcoming the thug life, you've got the wrong guy."

If he went to Wisconsin, why was he not a Badger???

A pet tortoise?! Really???
