Even During THON, Penn State Fans Still Hate NCAA & Mark Emmert
In the hour after news about Penn State football players being unable to participate in the THON Explorers program Saturday, Twitter reacted as ferociously as ever. Penn State fans, who have grown to detest the NCAA for a variety of reasons, voiced their frustration with Mark Emmert and Co. in the midst of a weekend focused on giving back to the community.

If Emmert weren’t already on Penn State fans’ short list, this all but reserved his spot next to Keith Olbermann and Sam Darnold.

These ESPN journalists are outspoken proponents for NCAA athletes’ rights, so look out if they take notice.
@ncaa won't let Penn State Football players participate in fundraising for Thon. AKA @ncaa won't let's Penn State Football players help raise money in FIGHTING FUCKING CANCER. How fucking evil are you Mark Emmert?

It looks like #MarkEmmert @NCAA is really pi$$ed off at #PennStaters for spreading #Truth about him after he spread #Lies about us. This is definitely retaliatory action by Emmert which hurts kids. Why does Mark #Emmert hate kids so much? #FireMarkEmmertNOW

All these sentences have most definitely been said by Penn State fans at least a few times during the last few years…
