GameDay Banners: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

College football is notorious for bringing the inner artist and troll in even the best of us. While artist is using loosely here, given the varying levels of creativity and aesthetic ability, troll is most certainly not. The corny jokes and irreverent attempts at humor were running rampant through campus and downtown as Penn Staters prepared to welcome Michigan and College GameDay to town in pursuit of the ever-important goal of making it onto Barstool.

We found some of the best and worst banners students hung from their houses, apartments, and dorms.

The Good: Solid, creative, tasteful roast sessions

One of the key parts to a great sense of humor is the humility to self-deprecate. I mean even if you’re in Triangle, AT LEAST, you don’t throw an interception every 20 attempts.

WalMart is such a great place for college students to shop on a budget that State College has two. However, the retail chain’s selection of offenses is subpar, much like Harbaugh’s choice in khakis.

It’s a timeless classic and was a great reminder to cure a case of the Monday Scaries.

Later in the week, the same house displayed its anti-Wolverine sentiments in a much more subtle way, reportedly because the landlord asked the tenants to take the original banner down. I respect persistence and civl disobedience in the name of Jim Harbaugh.

Michigan has sucked since long before there were phone lockscreens to remind us.

Forget the debate over who should start at quarterback. Here’s a platform that all Penn State fans can get behind.

The Bad: Corny, ad hominem jokes that I laughed at and was disappointed in myself for appreciating

Easy there. Let’s not get too controversial.


No wonder his offense hasn’t scored 30 points in more than a month! Sad!

You mean, when Jim Harbaugh allegedly partakes in this deadly vice, he goes outside and does so safely and respectfully of the people around him and basic fire safety measures? I can’t get over this guy!

We always knew this guy was backwards, but who knew he was a complete outlaw? I’m not sure if I’ll feel safe being in the same stadium as this heathen.

The Ugly: In the words of DaeSean Hamilton, “Man what”

That is quite the slippery slope to walk on..

I mean, he was 6-10 against the Wolverines, but you’re setting yourself up for an easy clapback.
