Penn State gets savagely trolled for hilariously awful Super Bowl graphic
Penn State looked to take advantage of the Super Bowl this weekend to promote how many Nittany Lions have played in the marquee event. But the image the program tweeted fell flat, and a flood of social media commenters took full advantage.
The original tweet was that Penn State claimed that “A Penn Stater has appeared in EVERY Super Bowl,” but just below that, in very small print, was, “Except for five since 1967.”
By Friday afternoon, it had nearly 3,000 retweets and more than 700 replies.
Plenty of fans also used the opportunity to troll another school, such as Texas or Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh.
Here’s a sampling:

Just need a “Tennessee undefeated vs Florida & Alabama since 2006”
Small font (and by that we mean we finally beat Florida in 2016)

If you have to put fine print on anything, the headline is a lie
So not “every”
Try this headline (which is true)
There has been a Super Bowl every year since 1967 and nearly 10% of the time neither team had someone from Penn State playing. https://t.co/rGF4s6HZjv
