    in some ways I am glad I wont be at the UNC game, AND it is at noon. I have a feeling if it was a night game, we would see a LOT more of this.

    first game I will miss this year. Asheville and The Smashing Pumpkins are calling……

    All I can say is wow. On tape even. There have to be some criminal charges in there somewhere.

    BTW, packpigskinfan, a buddy of mine in the navy stationed in Florida made the trip to the voodoo fest in New Orleans where Rage and the Pumpkins were playing. He said half the crowd left after ~1hr of the pumpkins because they were horrible. Hope it’s better for you.

    That was sickening. I have never seen such a blatant disregard for the value of a half full beer.

    I just expected the tOSU guy to turn around and punch that guys face into the ground and then keep walking.

    It’s really a shame that young idiots feel the need to behave like this.

    Had those OSU fans retaliated in any way, they would likely be in comas. It looked like they were outnumbered about 25-1.

    packplantpath- The Pumpkins have been my fav band since i was like 12, and I have seen them once before. I am sure I will enjoy! Thanks though.

    Honestly, if it is a choice between Stafford and having to endure idiots like that, I’ll take Stafford. Of course the best choice is to have neither.

    I believe Stafford’s solution would be to ban people from holding beer with their right hands. That should effectively prevent the kids from throwing their beer, right??

    If that was before the game, it must have been crazy after. But i guess those guys had already passed out by then. Maybe they should start calling the white out what it really is, a black out.

    Gee, Penn State might have gotten their asses kicked in the game, but they win the beer chunking competition…if this is what “big time football” looks like, I want no part of it.

    Oh Man, that’s alcohol abuse!!

  12. TNCSU 10/31/2007 at 3:34 PM #

    You should always hold your beer in your left hand, leaving your right hand free to poke the chest of anyone who disagrees with any of your theories about sports, women, music, etc…:)

    BTW, I could not bring up the link everyone is mentioning about Penn State/OSU, but I assume it’s some Nittany Lion students getting drunk.

    Momma must be proud! Stupid behavior and then post it on the internet as evidence. What a bunch of pubescent twits.

    What a bunch of tools.

    Stafford would probably cancel football season if something like that popped up from one of our lots.

    What? Children acting like fools after imbibing their first beer?

    You know not.

    PPSF23, I saw the Pumpkins in July in Asheville. 3 hour show. Unbelievable. Enjoy.

    Was this post referencing this the nonsensical “beer smash gauntlet”?

    The kids line up and run at each other and smash their beers so they fizz, then they race to drink it in one tilt. It looks like a way for lightweights to lessen the beer they drink by intentional spilling, a scornful party foul in my day.


    I’d only play if i got to drink some of the other guys beer after I guzzle him out. My 12 ounce Shaolin Gulp is the best style, I’m certain.

    If you’re wondering what happened to the video:

    sorry, don’t know how to get around posting the link withoug setting off italics.. here’s the content…

    Days after Penn State’s football loss to Ohio State, a YouTube video surfaced featuring several men throwing beer cans and yelling obscenities at two Buckeyes fans.
    The rear of Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, 417 E. Fairmount Ave., is seen in the video. The fraternity’s president, Brendan Wilson (junior-management), said he had no comment when reached by phone last night.
    The YouTube account name of the user who uploaded the video was “crazysacc,” which is also the AOL Instant Messenger screen name of Pi Kappa Alpha Vice President Gaetano Sacco (junior-film).
    Sacco was reached by cell phone but had no comment.
    By last night, all of the videos posted on YouTube by “crazysacc” had been removed, and the account was canceled.
    The State College Police Department is investigating the case, but Sgt. Keith Robb, the officer investigating the case, could not be reached for comment.
    In the video, two men with red Ohio State jerseys are seen walking
    through an alley that passes behind Pi Kappa Alpha. One man became the target of several open beverages thrown from the crowd, but as he walked farther away, one man in a Penn State T-shirt pursued him and continued the attack, encouraged by a chant of “F— Ohio” before returning to a congratulatory crowd.
    A voice in the video can be heard yelling “pike” — a nickname for the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity.
    “You are the man,” said a male voice off-camera. “This dude’s from Pittsburgh. He doesn’t even need to do it, but he does it.”
    Tom Poole, associate to the president for administration, said although the university had released no statement, he had responded to e-mails regarding the issue.
    “I don’t know what can be done about it,” Poole said. “People act like fools.”
    He said Penn State President Graham Spanier’s office had received “an awful lot of mail.”
    This is a “terrible impression to give the world about Penn Staters,” he added.
    Spanier said last night he had no information concerning the incident and had not seen the video.
    Interfraternity Council President Grant Miller (senior-English) also could not give additional information, but said he believes no Penn State student meant to disrespect any Ohio State student.
    Lisa Powers, director of public information, said comments had been made to Columbus, Ohio news stations as well as local news.
    Powers said she was “disappointed and saddened” by these students’ actions that “could give all Penn Staters a bad name.”

    Maybe we should be proud, instead of lamenting, that State has a lower percentage of students in the Greek system than other schools…

  22. bTHEredterror 11/01/2007 at 8:24 PM #

    Sounds like a post we had earlier this season, where State fans had thrown full bears at Lousiville fans.

  23. Dogbreath 11/03/2007 at 12:00 PM #

    I can picture Gaetano Sacco as the prototypical loud, obnoxious, black-haired, large nosed, guido Penn State type. You see them everywhere, most often in places like Orlando and Miami.
