"We Are Penn State" troll?

I haven't been able to re-watch it yet, but did I see another epic troll of a defeated rival?  They glossed over it on TV but it looked like the Michigan Stadium crew played that PSU anthem where they shout WE ARE PENN STATE.  The whole stadium looked whited-out with phone flashlights.

Was it as awesome as it looked for the 1-second they showed it?  Loving the contribution from Michigan's media team this year :-)

I was there it was "we own Penn state". Fun times.

Understandably so the psu bloggers weren't too happy with that and the Michigan players doing the Barkley and McSorely celebrations. Oh well that's what happens when your d bag coach tries to run it up the year before.

Fans were shouting “We Own Penn State” FYI - there is video of it from the stands if you look around.  (I can’t relocate it but believe I saw it on Twitter or Instagram via Twitter)

While kicking the dead dog, i just remembered the quote I put in on 9/1...had to repost...“I will hurt you for this. I don't know how yet, but give me time. A day will come when you think yourself safe and happy, and suddenly your joy will turn to ashes in your mouth, and you'll know the debt is paid.”

Definitely We OWN Penn State. We used to chant that all the time back in the early 2000s when they were like 1-8 against us since joining the conference. They also sucked at basketball and had no hockey team.

Henne/Manningham I think was the beginning of "We Own Penn State."  Popular basketball chant since we are something like 182-3 against PSU in basketball.

After PSU lost to OSU in an excruciating manner (again,) Franklin claimed they were a great team. He said they weren’t elite because elite teams win those games, but they were “great.” I’ve got news for James Franklin. Penn State is neither.

I liked DPJ mocking Saquon Barkley’s flailing arm celebration after his TD, and Winovich mocking McSorely’s “home run” celebration after David Long’s interception.

I was definitely shouting “We own Penn State” in my section. I’d say 75% of the people around me joined in once they realized what was going on. The student section was chanting loudly as soon as the song started.

That crowd was loud on television--and got louder as the game went along. Loved that chant at that end. I thought it was "We Aren't Penn State" when I heard it over my shitty computer speakers--of course, "We Own..." "We Fuck.." "You Suck,..." are all much better.
