College football fans, programs troll Penn State for hilariously misleading Super Bowl graphic
Penn State’s social media department has managed to turn an impressive accomplishment into one of the biggest jokes of the week.
On Thursday night, the Nittany Lions tweeted out a highly misleading graphic about the number of Super Bowls a Penn State player has appeared in. Note the fine print:

So of course, folks on Twitter have been mocking this claim since it was posted. The ironic thing is, this is actually an impressive feat — having an alum appear in 49 of 54 total Super Bowls is a remarkable accomplishment.
But the claim’s fine print makes it so preposterous that fans haven’t been able to resist making fun of it.
By Friday morning, a few other college programs had mocked up their own graphics that poked fun at the Nittany Lions. Here’s one from Ole Miss:

I’m not saying Penn State’s Super Bowl graphic had anything to do with this.
But I’m not NOT saying it, either… https://t.co/0lLcvZo8FY
