2021 Blue White Game

Petitions and email campaigns yet Penn State officials have not made anymore revisions to their Blue and White game plans coming up on April 17th.

As it stands freshmen will be the only ones inside Beaver Stadium on Saturday.

And no tailgating will be allowed outside of the stadium.

The Dark Paw website reads,

“The decision makes zero sense. Freshmen will have 3 full seasons and 3 Blue & White games left to experience Penn State Football. Seniors, though? This is our last chance to ever experience a football game as students.”

They sat it’s disrespectful to seniors students who have spent their college years as dedicated season ticket holders and most of all, Nittany Lion fans.

Penn State officials tell me they sympathize with the seniors however, they are allowing freshmen in because they have had no opportunities to fully understand Penn States traditions.

So far the group has sent 99 anonymous emails to Penn State Athletic Director Sandy Barbour and received nearly 12,000 signatures on an online petition.

The website says they will delete the site once Sandy Barbour quote makes the right call but until then, they plan to continue fighting for what they think is right.

Officials say after the governors recent lifted mitigation efforts, they considered allowing more people into the stadium but they write

“While we considered allowing some additional attendance to include seniors, the surge in student and community COVID cases after the period of traditional spring break, coupled with the rise in more transmissible variants, caused us to pause for community health concerns.”

Meaning Penn State has no plans to expand the attendance policy.
