Some of the 2008 captains did not take to kindly to this. In response Derrick Williams said the following:
“My thought is, after the season we can talk about who is in the top three,” he said. “I really could care less what people say about where Penn State is because no one has played yet.”The subtext is, of course, FUCK YOU MAN! THIS IS MY SENIOR YEAR AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS SHIT!
AQ Shipley was not to be left out:
“You come here expecting to be in the top three, especially with what we have returning,” center A.Q. Shipley said. “What it comes down to is we're coming to the Midwest and we weren't put in the top three, and obviously we're going to leave here with a chip on our shoulder.”Subtext: I am going to try to bury you on the field.
GO STATE! GET FIRED UP!
