Remember when everyone said we couldn’t play college football because people would die and the virus was impossible to contain?
Remember those days? I sure do! I remember those days like they were yesterday!

Wisconsin was hammered by coronavirus during the 2020 season, and the Badgers had to miss multiple games. Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions took care of business and served as an example of what’s possible when we put our minds to it.

Hats off to Penn State for proving that it was absolutely possible to play games and keep everyone safe at the same time.
