I don't think ESPN can afford that.

I like to think that I'd get out on the ice and then have a full-on Falling Down rage session at everyone involved. Then the audience, teams, managers, and owners would hang their heads in shame for 30 seconds before remembering that they want this world and pelting me to death with team-logo merch.

What's with App State fans and overalls? Seems a lousy clothing choice for a football game.

It was a deliberate shot at the A&M Yell Leaders for the incredibly lame speech at their midnight rally.

Texas mocking another region about education is like Texas mocking another state about their governor.

I mean, they had a Heisman quarterback who needs to have a homeless guy vouch for him to get the farking Browns to draft him.

Any school that goes that apesh*t over football probably isn't worth going to

video was still hard to see the 4 panel one.

Yeah, the winner was the only one with visible, legible text at a distance.

Best I can tell, the Star Wars 4-panel one goes "We paid App State $1.5 million to come play in College Station." / "And you [something] them to a [something] win, right? [...] You won, right?"
Still got absolutely no idea what the text at the top of the third one is.

The first panel is something about paying $1.5 million App state to come play them

Amidala is like and you beat them with a large blow out right!!!

The 3rd panel is Anakin looking like someone killed his best friend

4th panel is Amidala going.....right?????

Back when cold fusion was a thing, some wag pointed out that no school without a D1 football team had been able to replicate the result. In fact Texas A&M was found not have have committed fraud, but did experience "breakdown in scientific objectivity".

Eh, there are worse things ESPN can buy with their revenue.

I hate that it comes to stunts like this to make college affordable, but that isn't really ESPN's fault.

Reminds me of when Appalachian beat Michigan (no, we're never going to stop talking about it). Some Michiganders were making cracks about App having outhouses and no electricity. Hah!

My bad

The best I can make is Rock and Rollneers but I can't tell what the football player is holding. The jersey has a 6 on it though.

Shirley Ujest: I have always thought that Blue Mountain State was modeled after App St.

This is what Eric Falconer said in an AMA on Reddit several years ago:

"We never really decided on a specific location for the school. We wanted to treat it like the Simpsons treat Springfield... could be anywhere in the US. We drew inspiration from all big party schools. We looked specifically at Boise State and University of Miami back in the 80's and early 90's."

Exhibit A of why the current system of colleges bribing other colleges to come play against them in a football game is stupid.
