For Penn State juniors and seniors, Iowa has caused nothing but heartbreak and disappointment. For that reason and many others, tomorrow is the biggest game of the season for Penn State, and, for us, it's personal.
It's that time of year again, where for whatever reason, the extremely weather-appropriate demographic at Penn State celebrates the slightly less than warm weather. We just have to admit it and realize there is no use in denying: it's SNUGG season, everyone. Spandex, North Face, and UGGs: these have become the obligatory novelty that no one seems to point out, despite its ubiquity ad nauseam. There is no coincidence that UGG is also a self-referencing onomatopoeia for those of us who just can't deal with this ridiculous trend anymore.
Don't get me wrong, I don't really care what people wear. It's the frequency that I see girls wearing this exact outfit that bothers me. And it's not just how often I see that bothers me, it's really why I see it so often that does. It has become a fashionable way to dress down. Which doesn't make any sense.
Everyone know sthat this time of year, once the weather turns chilly and crisp, there's a few things that girls reach for before they brace the weather outside of their apartment. Yes, I am referring to SNUGG. Here, SNUGG stands for Spandex, North Face, and UGGs. In fact, as I write this, I, too, am sporting this uniform.
Penn State (4-1) is coming off a terrible performance at Indiana last week. Iowa (3-1) comes into Happy Valley boasting a high-powered offence that easily dispatched Louisiana-Monroe, 45-17, two weeks ago. It will be a battle of the Penn State defense against the Iowa offense on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
Try to think of the last time the Penn State women's volleyball team was a home underdog. Let that sink in for a minute, because Saturday night, the tables will be turned. Undefeated Illinois visits Happy Valley for a matchup of Big Ten powers with the two squads having very different seasons so far.
The process of finding an apartment at Penn State is stressful for many students. Is there a better way?
