Anyone who has a problem with this can go jump on a bandwagon.
Honor this team. They deserve every bit.
Not only do I like it, but I think they should make 2012 a different color so that it stands out.
If true, this is awesome and well-deserved.
These seniors should be honored for posterity. Color me surprised the brass have agreed to what is a good idea for once.
This smells of Coach O' Brien.
"Beer is proof God loves us and wants us to be happy."
They won our university back from the media clowns!!! They deserve to be honored and remembered in a special way!!!! And the "runaways" get nothing!!!! ha ha ha ha.
Lets also not forget we didnt have a true cupcake FCS team on the schedule and could just as easily be undefeated. Without the sanctions and defections, who knows what our record would be.
"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
The team won the respect of the fans and the nation. They deserve the recognition.
I saw the NC teams and the 1994 team play and this team deserves a place of honor along with these teams. I have never enjoyed watching a Penn State team more than this one. They may not have won any championships but they won the hearts and respect of Penn Staters everywhere.
Downvote me if u need to but after reflection i think this a bad idea. Honor this team an other way. Leave that ring for the championship teams and unbeatens.
We should put 2011 up there, too, because we were co-champions of our division in 2011. Wiscy went to the BIG championship game because they beat us straight up.
No we shouldn't. Besides 2012, it should be reserved for unbeaten, national championship, and conference championship teams. Maybe division winners, if we actually played in the championship game.
LOVE this idea. These seniors have been through the ringer. What a great way to show them that their hard work and dedication to PSU and the football program didn't go un-noticed!?

They deserve it.
Maybe they didn't do as well on the scoreboard as some of those other teams, but IMO there is no doubt they won the hardest battle ever fought by any football team (ever)
I have told this story to 3 people that didn't hear of it yet. I don't get 3/4 to the end before I have to stop because I start to choke up. These kids deserve so much credit. As the day ends I asked how many of you would have stayed? Not stayed as Penn State Football Players but stayed in your current job or even your current life? 95% of your who say they would have stayed are lying. We would all stay now, who wouldn't?
But when times were in shambles these guys stayed.
And for that 2012 needs to be seen forever, and maybe even a permanent retirement of 42.
God Bless and go State.
That is awesome, these kids deserve this honor and in my book are one of the best Penn State teams in history. This team is going to be legends.
As a sidebar, wrestler David Taylor will also receive the Hodge Trophy (wrestling's version of the Heisman Trophy) some time during the first half of the game.
MEDIA ALERT:s Penn Stat
heres a pic
I bet people love it for a few years, are ok with it for a few years, and are annoyed by it 50 years down the road.
More than just football
