Unsurprisingly, Theresa Lafer Doesn’t Like Penn State Football Practice Noise

Even though the Nittany Lions lost to Iowa just a few days ago, there are still few legitimate bones to pick with Penn State football’s play this fall.

However, that’s not stopping State College Councilwoman Theresa Lafer and a few other neighbors from raising concerns with Penn State playing simulated crowd noise at outdoor practices on weekday nights. According to a recent email chain, Lafer encouraged residents in State College’s Highlands neighborhood to report the noise so it “does NOT become a repeat experience.”

As borough official Douglas Shontz noted in a forwarded email, Beaver Stadium, plus other portions of Penn State’s east campus, fall under College Township jurisdiction, likely preventing them from any effects of State College ordinance enforcement.

Some community members quickly shot down Lafer’s idea once the email chain was posted online.

Exactly what comes of the neighbors’ raised complaints remains to be seen, but it seems incredibly unlikely Penn State would change its practice habits midway through the season as the No. 7 team in the country. Perhaps we’ll hear from some neighbors at the next Borough Council meeting.
