    Terrelle Cryer T-shirts recalled by Penn State student group
    By Doug Lesmerises, The Plain Dealer
    November 04, 2009



    Those Terrelle Cryer shirts won't be popping up at Saturday's Ohio State-Penn State game after all.

    The Penn State Marketing Association made 200 of the shirts, which featured a drawing of Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor and a box of tissues, and was planning to pass them out to members of the group and then sell any left over to the public on Friday. Dan Sturman, a Penn State senior and the president of the student group, said today that is commonly done at Penn State, various student organizations designing their own T-shirts for big games.

    But the decision was made last night to recall all of the shirts after the Marketing Association received input from members of the club that the shirt wasn't sending the right message. Penn State's Daily Collegian wrote a story about the shirts this week that was picked up by several other sources, including www.cleveland.com

    "The feedback we received thought it was too over-the-top," Sturman said. "It conveyed our message incorrectly. We wanted to stir up excitement about the Ohio State-Penn State rivalry. It was not meant to be an attack on Pryor. He's an amazing athlete. It's not an attack on him, and that's not what Penn State is about."

    Sturman said the group had passed out about 20 T-shirts to members, but the group knows who has them and everyone has been asked to turn them in.

    Well.... That just "sucks".... It's a big game, and if little Cryor can't handle it, he should just take his ball and go home...

    .... Have I mentioned lately that I really don't like OSU?.....

    This guy seems to get babied way too much. I mean, I know Pryor's not a pro (nor will he likely ever be) but, look at all of the **** that gets heaped upon Sid Crosby by opposing teams fans, since day 1 pretty much. It doesnt get to him, if anything it only makes him work and play the game harder.

    This is all getting out of hand. Football players should be babied and trash-talking between fans should be banned/discredited...this is stupid.

    Maybe fans shouldn't chant at games any more either...or maybe fans shouldn't attend games...heck maybe fans shouldn't watch games on TV either...b/c they might get angry and yell something that might offend.

    Sorry man...it really does **** me off though. I think we should all be forced for the good of humanity to sit together and hold hands and sing a song of peace. Hell, even that would probably offend someone.

    Well... I'm offended by folks telling me what is offensive... The "moral majority" is obviously alive and well in college football.
