Relive The Best Penn State College GameDay Signs From The Last Two Years

College GameDay will be making its third consecutive trip to State College for Penn State’s White Out game against Michigan.

Over the past two years, fans have covered Old Main Lawn with creative and beautifully harsh signs, per GameDay tradition. Here’s a look back at some of the best to remind you of some of the best Penn State football burns and inspire you in your sign making this weekend.

You can’t go wrong with the classic “Michigan still sucks” sign. The creativity with the analog clock gives it a rustic feel as if to suggest that it has truly always been this way.

Here’s an example of high-level trolling at it’s finest from last year’s GameDay pre-Ohio State rally. If you can’t beat them on the field, beat them on the lawn, right?

Jim Harbaugh and his ever so famous khakis are the easiest Michigan target available. This sign, however, literally goes above and beyond with a massive, soaked-khaki display to get the message across.

And you thought the Alma Mater was Penn State’s greatest lyrical poem. It’s all in the details here — a sweet school colors jab and a smattering of different fonts to catch the eye.

This Onward State-made sign made use of former Michigan quarterback John O’Korn’s convenient name.

LionPATH: not great, especially back in 2017 when this sign was made. For the kids reading this and wondering just how bad was the platform used to be: It was compared to an offense that scored 25 points per game, cycled through three quarterbacks, and needed to turn the reins of its offense back over to a former starter who was benched.

The Michigan “M” turned upside down is the Wikipedia “W.” Coincidence?

You can’t go wrong with a reliable “The Office” meme.

We’ve seen the Wolverines strike this pose often so far this season.

Nickelodeon is a treasure trove of meme material. Here’s a “Fairly OddParents” reference that’ll be fairly hard to beat this weekend.
