The Best College GameDay Signs From Penn State-Michigan

College GameDay took over Old Main Lawn this weekend and the atmosphere was everything we expected and more. If you didn’t get a chance to check out the action yesterday, I can assure you it was electric. But, better yet, find out for yourself next week because ESPN is coming for round two in Columbus.

Of course, the best part about GameDay are the signs. Students and fans came up with hundreds of incredibly unique (and some savage) slogans and graphics to wave around on ESPN for three hours and attempt to knock Michigan off its game and diss its fans. Here’s a collection of the best signs we saw yesterday.

Sources say this pair was taken right off Harbaugh’s legs.


Go green! Go white! Michigan didn’t even put up a fight.

Must’ve been one hell of a sleepover. Perhaps next time hold kicking practice instead.

The only time I like seeing a Michigan fan is when they’re making the above face.

Some would argue (not the NCAA though, apparently) Michigan should be punished for this, but I think Penn State took care of that last night.

That podium will probably be empty for a few more years, Jim.

Does this Korn taste a little bit salty to you?

Huh University of Michigan admissions didn’t mention this when I was considering schools.

A down-to-the second look at how much Michigan sucks.

Don’t even act that surprised Jim.

And we’re talking about the original LionPATH.

AND we make our PAT kicks ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Harsh =/= false

College GameDay: Bring your best sign to Old Main Lawn

Fan: Lmao ok

Post your GameDay signs in the comments and get ready for round two next week!
