The Best Tweets Of Pitt-Penn State Hate Week

#PittHateWeek is coming to a head and I honestly cannot recall the last time so many people were so mad online. People seem even more upset than they were during #OhioStateHateWeek, and I just can’t wrap my head around it.

This is supposed to be fun. Football is a game.

Take a break from all the Sandusky jokes and chuckle along with Twitter users who actually seem to get what “hate weeks” are all about. Because if you can’t laugh at yourself, life is going to seem a whole lot longer than you want it to be.


This is the issue we should really be worrying about.

A topical meme + a relevant Penn State reference = 15 minutes of Twitter fame.

Every time I think about the fact that a recruit listed Pitt as his 5B option, I giggle.

Here we have an extremely true fact. Nobody lies on the internet.

A picture is worth a thousand words.

I’m a firm believer that almost any situation can be joked about if you do it right. That’s why, when I perused the #PennStateHateWeek hashtag looking for funny tweets, I was disappointed. Pitt Twitter misses the mark because it generally pokes fun at the act of child rape, not anything else surrounding the situation that could be funny. There is nothing remotely funny about what happened in the Penn State showers, and if there was, it would’ve stopped being funny the millionth time someone cracked this joke.

I did find one good tweet, and I’d like to inform any Pitt fan reading this that I laughed at one of their jokes for the first time today. I simply did not see this comparison coming:
