Penn Staters Furious Over Freshmen-Only ‘Blue-White’ Practice Invite

Despite being granted entrance into Beaver Stadium for graduation ceremonies, seniors won’t be able to see Penn State football play in person anytime soon.

Instead, Penn State opted to let first-year students in to watch the Nittany Lions’ final spring practice. President Eric Barron said they were selected so they could be introduced to the Beaver Stadium experience they’ve missed out on…just like seniors.

Naturally, folks were pissed online. Some could barely believe the announcement was real.

Words of disappointment toward the university were not minced.

Other folks wondered where the logic of the decision came from. Many called back to the infamous freshmen “twerk circle” at the beginning of the fall 2020 semester that didn’t make a great first impression.

The logic behind the decision is still yet to be determined.
