Penn State selling commemorative t-shirts to honor win over Syracuse

PSU t-shirt

Penn State’s 23-17 victory over historic rival Syracuse in MetLife Stadium may not have been pretty, but now fans of the Nittany Lions can honor the victory whenever they want with a commemorative t-shirt depicting the final score from the 2013 season opener.

Yes, now Penn State fans can pull out a t-shirt from the drawer, put it on, look in the mirror and smile back fondly on the afternoon that saw freshman Christian Hackenberg throw two touchdowns and 278 yards, or reflect on how Allen Robinson sat out the first half for an undisclosed reason only to spark life on his first two plays on the field in the second half.

The t-shirts, sold on the school’s official online store sell for $17.95 (why not $23.17?) Other programs have printed shirts for each win of their season before, so this idea is nothing new. It is a new idea for Penn State, at least for a regular season game not tied to any historic milestones.

    Considering the sanctions against them, probably a good idea.

    1. They are cutting a lot of checks for the settlements.
    2. Might be tough to have success of any kind for a while. They are really going to hurt with so many limitations.

    This was good for a laugh. Reminds me of The Mountain Three Wolf Moon Short Sleeve Tee funny review on Amazon.

    The T-shirt should acknowledge their victory in the Child Molestation Bowl, winners of the Fine-Sandusky Trophy

    They are trying to make money that’s what businesses do.

    Give one to Johnny Manziel. He’s a puppet and the NCAA will let him do whatever as long as he’s making money for them.

    Not sure I’d be making a t-shirt celebrating a victory, when they didn’t cover the spread.

    The coaches and players (none of which had any connection to Sandusky) won a very hard fought game against a NY team in a NY stadium. Yet the no life, scumbags that comment on these posts continue to get pleasure out of insulting and degrading them. They have been punished repeatedly for crimes committed by a sick pedophile but that is still not enough for some people on CFT. I wish these kids the best because they show more courage everyday then most of the gutless cowards that post on here have ever shown in their entire lives.

    Congrats to Penn State!

    O’Brien is making the most of the situation and PSU will probably be better than most people think.

    PSU makes it through this year and it’s all down hill.
    Halfway through the sanctions, developing a solid
    foundation, and most importantly, support for the school has never wavered.

    Some B1G schools are going to be surprised.

    Good one BabyFark. I get it. Did you think that up all on your own? Was it something you’ve been waiting to say since the story broke?

    To the person a couple of posts ago, it’s not that one sick person did one bad thing and now they have been punished and it is all ok now. The University as a whole hid behind this JoePa Penn State way crap while the institution harbored and facilitated a monster. Yes, the Penn State Way was culpable and PSU will NEVER get out from under the scrutiny that it fully deserves.

    11thstmoron please get your facts and get educated before you post your assumptions. A university as a whole hid the scandal? Yes all the students and faculty knew of this and hid it. I love how morons like you and all the idiots with the played out pedophile university title keep on ranting and rambling about how the whole school hid this and that. Please grow up.

    @ ironman721

    Well said

    @ 11thstreetmafia

    You can blame the university and like the NCAA they deserve it, but the kids on the field and the current coaching staff (which you didn’t mention) don’t deserve any of it. They weren’t involved and the T-shirts are just a reminder of a game they won in a format that is similar to a bowl game.

    @ Everybody Else

    I fail to see the outrage for a game that had a T-shirt attached to it? Every time a team in the Big-12 beats Texas or Oklahoma they make a T-shirt for it. I know Kansas State has beat in that business the last 2 years and no one cares.

    If you guys just need someone to hate on why don’t you just contact Penn State University directly I’m sure there’s a phone number. That way you can leave CFT for good.

    Actually the trials that will actually determine all this stuff haven’t even happened. Everyone is taking the Freeh report as fact. He did get some things right, but he got even more wrong. In addition the AG that tried the case told out and out lies and is under investigation (hopefully she will loose her license to practice law). All these lies to cover up the botched 1998 investigation by the state is so the Second Mile won’t be investigated. Lot’s of funny things going on there. Lot’s of dotted lines between Colbert, Second Mile, BOT, and more going on here.

    # NCAA getting sued for over reaching and not following its own rules.
    # Freeh being sued for slander (has at least 4 other major reports like the one he did for PSU discredited).
    # AG being investigated and likely to loose her license.
    # Second Mile to be investigate by the federal government
    # Looks like the lawyer for PSU (Cynthia Baldwin) and Tom Harmon (PSU police chief) have colluded to protect themselves and the BOT. Likely perjured themselves at the grand jury and threw people under the bus.
    # McQueary likely was coerced into changing his story with lies from the AG’s office. He even admits he changed the whole way he looked at the shower incident after he was contacted by the AG’s office in 2011.

    I could go on and on, but if you really want to understand what is going on here, then you will actually have to do some real reading and not just read ridiculous headlines. The best source for hard nosed information is Ray Blehar.
