DOTD: Even The Onion Is Noticing Penn State Football

Penn State has certainly reemerged as a national presence in the past year, and continued that meteoric rise with its first appearance in the top three of the AP Poll since 2008 on Sunday.

The Nittany Lions were profiled by ESPN, praised by Sports Illustrated, and proclaimed to be “back” by The Washington Post. They reached another milestone over the weekend — appearing in The Onion.

Alright, so maybe saying Penn State’s offensive line isn’t trustworthy wouldn’t exactly be satire. But c’mon, even in his dazed and confused state above, Connor McGovern seems like a pretty solid player and teammate.

Welp. At least this week’s appearance in The Onion is better than it’s been in the past.
