Penn State ushered in the Christian Hackenberg era on Saturday with a 23-17 win over Syracuse.
Hackenberg, a true freshman quarterback, was 22-of 31 for 278 yards and a pair of touchdowns, both of more than 50 yards, and made Penn State fans believe that perhaps this could be another good year.
But we’re not sure the win required a T-shirt.
Yes, the university decided to commemorate its “big” 23-17 win (over a team that finished 8-5 last season, one more loss than the Nittany Lions) with a T-shirt that it’s selling on the school store website.
The shirt has the location of the game, the score and the word “Victory” in big letters.
C’mon Penn State, be better than that. We get you’re excited about starting the season with a win, but not every triumph deserves a T-shirt, especially one against a Syracuse team that might not make it back to a bowl game this season.
