What We Want To See On Penn State Hoops’ ‘Believe’ Poster

Penn State men’s basketball team earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2011 after a gritty winning streak in the Big Ten Tournament. Micah Shrewsberry’s No. 10-seeded squad will play No. 7-seeded Texas A&M at 9:55 p.m. ET on Thursday, March 16, in Des Moines, Iowa.

Perhaps partially responsible for giving the team a morale boost was a Ted Lasso-inspired poster pictured in the team’s locker room. The sign simply read “Believe.”

This poster made our staffers think — what could’ve been a better fit to display on the poster?

Bring Back Creamery Milkshakes

In 2020, Penn State’s Berkey Creamery halted the production of milkshakes. It has been three years since milkshakes have left us, and we think it’s time to start talking about bringing the shakes back.

Pat Kraft Extend Me

Micah Shrewsberry led the Nittany Lions to the NCAA Tournament in just his second season as head coach. Along with securing the highest-ranked recruiting class in program history, Shrewsberry potentially possesses an all-time trajectory within the program.

Though, that’s only if Pat Kraft does what it takes to keep Penn State’s best baldy in Happy Valley, rather than letting him walk to Notre Dame or Georgetown.

2023 Rose Bowl Champs

The joy of the Rose Bowl win didn’t stay in Pasadena. We will be talking about that game until the Nittany Lions win the 2024 National Championship over Michigan.

How sweet would it be if Micah Shrewsberry used his increased platform to show cross-department support?

Bring Coca-Cola To Penn State

Aidan Conrad | Onward State

With Penn State currently mulling a change in its current soft drink partnership, many students are anxiously waiting for a change to Coca-Cola.

Pepsi has been partnered with the university since 1992. Enough is enough. We want to have our Diet Coke fix while on campus.

Gritty Not Pretty

A familiar phrase connected with this team. Not every game can be a pretty three-point shooting barrage, but when a team plays with grit you can find yourself on the winning side of close games.

Program Legends

It’s important for the players to keep in mind who came before you –– most importantly, those who helped shape the program, even without the opportunity to appear in March Madness. Players like DJ Newbill, Lamar Stevens, and John Harrar deserve the recognition.
