Oh that is just tempting fate

CALPOPPY's picture

Nice work. But I also agree with Matt about tempting fate. These posters have all been done well.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

I might be following suit with Bassplayer.

These are all so awesome!

Walt, you've outdone yourself.  Particularly like the previous game posters in the background.  Nice detail.

Italics are for emphasis.

This one is RAW!        But please lord let us win this game. 

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

Time to put this on my blogger...
A story about Nittany Lions. The reason they got their name was because near University Park there is a hill called Mt.Nittany where lions were believe to roam. Not sure how true this is but a few PSU fans shared this with me. 
Nice job!
 

Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see.

Cougars roamed throughout the United States not all that long ago. I mean Hell there were Bison in Virginia and North Carolina in the 1700's. Cougar range:

I love cougars! almost as much as milfs!

Gone ham, be back soon...

+1 for science and for eliciting some funny responses to the term "cougar"

johnblairgobucks's picture

did somebody say cougar?

Squirrel Master's picture

DAMN! Where's Michigan at?

I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!

William's picture

Also most biologists are willing to admit that cougars are making a come back in the Eastern US/Canada after being extirpated in the early 1900s. Several wild cougars have been confirmed to be living in New Brunswick, Canada as well as Wisconsin/Michigan (most likely came from the Dakotas/Ontario), as well as a possible resurgence in the Appalachians (Especially in New York, Maine, Virginia, North Carolina, Ohio, Vermont and New Hampshire.) 

BrewstersMillions's picture

PFFFT. Come on down to Orland Hills, IL-I've got a few bars I can take you to to see all the cougars you want.
Oh...not THOSE kind of cougars?
moving along.

4-6 seconds from point A to point B and when you get to point B, be pissed off

BrewstersMillions's picture

This....this is just so...I....I don't even know what to say. Perfection

This poster series is so classic.  I tip my winged helmet to everyone involved.  Bravo.

buckeyeEddie27's picture

winged helmet  yuck.    you still get an upvote though.

I know there's a game Saturday, and my ass will be there.

scrappled's picture

Bad ass. Well done.

rickyu22's picture

Impressive sir!!! 

johnblairgobucks's picture

don't see a larynx on that cat, does this mean that incessant kitty-cat noise emanating from their loudspeakers will also become extinct?
love the posters.

avail31678's picture

Oh dear Lord, I forgot about that kitty-kat noise.  Now I really want our D to stuff them just so they don't get many first downs and I don't have to hear that over and over again.  Any chance they got rid of that along with the "Sweet Caroline" tradition?

BrewstersMillions's picture

I do believe they 'turned their back' on Sweet Caroline. I think after a while, it was just easier to close their eyes and ears and pretend nothing happened.

BuckeyeVet's picture

Avail & Brewster - They have stopped the "Sweet Caroline" singing, because of the lines in it like  "Touching me, touching you" was making a few people uneasy. Not making this up -read about it a few weeks ago.
And Walt - just fantastic!

Just as well.  They couldn't sing it anyway.

So far these posters are 8-0. Walts gonna have to make these for the rest of his life.

toad1204's picture

Walt, once again you have out done yourself.  Well done.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02... 

CCatanzaro's picture

So pardon me if I'm out of the loop, but are these going to be available for sale?  Are they already? I think I must have all of them, framed, on every wall in my house.

You can download them for free and print them out at your own expense.

Will do, and thanks for the quick response!

Posted a link to all of them if you want below

Dean's picture

Unfortunately not - there were concerns about legal action from the University if they tried to sell them, if I recall correctly.

ArTbkward's picture

These only keep getting better

cinserious's picture

quite possibly my favorite poster yet. Reminds me of a garbage pail kids card.

Gone ham, be back soon...

osubuckeye4life's picture

Awesome poster Walt and it is now in my wallpaper collection that rotates every 30 mins.
Cougars?
Garbage Pail Kids card reference! It reminds me of one as well, just not sure of what phrase to use Prehistoric Pu......I can't
So much win in this one thread.
Bravo everyone!

Doc's picture

Nice job Walt.  If week nine looks this good cant wait for twelve.

So will they take down the extinct lion skeleton like they did with JoPa's statue?

Kurt's picture

Sort of on this topic...Ohio State just posted this link to the university archives from their Facebook feed... really really great library of old football program covers.

Walt Keys's picture

beautiful. programs like those were/are the inspiration for making these posters. so much cooler and creative than just slapping a photo of the star player on the cover and calling it a day. thanks for sharing this archive, my day is now shot.

Kurt's picture

Hahaha!  Yea, well you can guess how hard I'm working to have found it.  Awesome...I'm sure you'll pull some brilliant ideas from these.    

TatumRuled's picture

Thanks for the link! I'm perusing them now. I especially like the one urging students to vote to make Ohio a 'dry state'.....

The $25 tailor made suit has me a bit nostalgic for an era 70 years before my birth...

Walt Keys's picture

Thanks again everyone. As always, these posters are a blast to make, and your kind words are very humbling.

Go Bucks!

Squirrel Master's picture

Shouldn't it say extinct since 1997 since that was basically the last year that counted?
Excellent poster. Tough to say the best since they all rock but damn if you didn't hit this one on the head. Love the background posters! So much detail. A modern day B1G version of Salvadore Dali!
