Chances are that were if not for the monster we know as Jerry Sandusky, the Nittany Lions would be playing in a more prestigious bowl. However, after the backlash of the sex abuse scandal, Penn State finds themselves in the “Ticket City Bowl” and many of their players are unhappy about this.
SI.com has the scoop:
Penn State players may have nothing against the Lone Star State, but it’s not where they prefer to start a new year. Several players expressed their disappointment over dropping to the TicketCity Bowl on their Twitter accounts … “Someone please tell me that the rumors swirling about the Ticket City Bowl are a sick joke,” tweeted redshirt junior linebacker Mike Yancich, from Trinity. “The players are getting punished for things they had nothing to do with.” “Remind me again what we did to deserve this?” said redshirt junior long snapper Mike Fuhrman, from North Allegheny. “Might as well [be] playing against concord high psu vs chs,” junior starting wide receiver Justin Brown tweeted.
The players are upset and they should be.
