Overheard On Instagram: Mike Gesicki Is That Guy In The Squad Who Always Gets Roasted

When @mikegesicki posts a picture on Instagram, a few things are givens: his perfectly hulking physique, a ?emoji, a prototypical student athlete quote that doesn’t make too much sense but still sounds awesome, and a few snarky clapbacks from his teammates. Truly, nobody is safe, not even one of the team’s leading receivers and seniors, who has wracked up a team high four touchdowns and 167 yards on a second-best 20 catches.

Interacting publicly on social media seems to be the norm for Penn State football. While James Franklin owns Twitter and uses it to advise his players on proper bed times, @hammypacquaio, better known as DaeSean Hamilton, is the ring leader on Instagram. The senior wide receiver spearheads the crusade against Gesicki’s posts, questioning everything from his choice of caption to his football mechanics to his accessories.

While Hamilton remains a critic, or as Gesicki would probably say, a “hater,” Trace McSorley is teeming with compliments for one of his favorite targets.

If you have to ask yourself whether or not it’s worth it, then you’ve never experienced success.

Even when he’s FTK, Gesicki still has Hamilton coming for him. We imagine that if Gesicki did show Landon bicep curls, he’d do a lot. Look at those arms.


You know what those emojis mean ?.

Never complacent, forever motivated. ?

Hopefully, the NCAA doesn’t consider this white lie Tommy Stevens that calls him out on as faking class attendance. Then, Penn State would really be in trouble.

Even his backup has something to say. That’s how you know the whole team is ganging up on him.

Forever seeking revenge… ?

At least Gesicki can dish it back to Hamilton.

Never satisfied, just the beginning. See y’all in Indy… ??

We’re beginning to become more confused with Hamilton’s comments than Gesicki’s posts.

And, we are now even more confused.

Overly focused, far from the time to rest now. January 2nd. . . ???

Aaaand, Hamilton has officially lost us.

Been long overdue, got my foot on the gas now. #WeAre

The man just wants just to post a picture with his girlfriend and he has everybody coming for his neck, or at least, what’s around it.

Best view of Pittsburgh with the best date. ? #SixBurgh

Even the McSorley FAMILY has gotten in on the action.

For all the flack he takes, at least Gesicki has one loyal, supportive friend.
