The NCAA President Who Stole Football

This poem was originally posted by our friends at Penn State Memes and republished with their permission.

Every Penn Stater down in Happy Valley, the tall and the small,
Was cheering without any program at all!
He HADN’T stopped the love of our University from coming! IT CAME!
Somehow or other, it came just the same!

And Dr. Emmert, with his Grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling:
How could it be so?
It came without JoePa! It came without goals!
It came without scholarships, statues, or bowls!

And he puzzled and puzzed, till his puzzler was sore.
Then Dr. Emmert thought of something he hadn’t before!
“Maybe Penn State,” he thought, “isn’t just a football store.
Maybe Penn State… perhaps… means a little bit more.”
