Overheard on Twitter: Wisconsin Basketball Player Throws Shade At The “We Are” Chant

Editor’s note: It has been more than a year since we last posted an “Overheard on Twitter” feature. I don’t know what we were thinking. We won’t let it happen again. Here is our 159th edition.

The excitement around Penn State basketball has been palpable throughout the non-conference schedule this season for the first time in as long as I can remember. The 12-1 Nittany Lions are one of only three one-loss teams in the Big Ten at this early mark, but after Wednesday, that number will decrease to two, as Penn State tips off the conference schedule with 12-1 and 6th ranked Wisconsin.

That game is apparently not lost on Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky, who took to Twitter during the Pinstripe Bowl jubilation on Saturday to come after Penn State’s sacred cheer.

That comment was not lost on Penn State star D.J. Newbill.

But it’s okay, Penn State Twitter. He must’ve been talking about Marshall.

At the very least, Penn State has some bulletin board material as it looks to upset Wisconsin Wednesday at 1 p.m. EST in Madison. And there are sure to be “We Are” chants aplenty on February 18 when Kaminsky the Badgers come to Happy Valley.

Hometown Brewery Releases Beer Honoring Evan Pugh

Penn State’s first president Evan Pugh was born in 1828 at Jordan Bank Farm, three miles south of the city center of Oxford, Pennsylvania, an hour west of Philadelphia in Chester County. One-hundred eighty-nine years later, an Oxford brewery is honoring one of the preeminent champions of “liberal and practical” higher education in the form of a delicious Porter.
