What a great poster! Awesome image and meta in the background.
Easily the best poster there's been. Awesome!
Oh that is just tempting fate
Nice work. But I also agree with Matt about tempting fate. These posters have all been done well.
I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.
This is now my desktop background at work. Nice.
Well done. Brings a tear to the eye.

Great poster but still feel bad for the program.

These are all so awesome!
Walt, you've outdone yourself. Particularly like the previous game posters in the background. Nice detail.
A true craftsman definitely never blames his tools.
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.
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!
One day I will valiantly become a political prisoner of 11W jail.
Sightings in north jersey as well.

+1 for science and for eliciting some funny responses to the term "cougar"
did somebody say cougar?
DAMN! Where's Michigan at?
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
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.)
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?
Do I come off as arrogant? Shame on me, I was hoping it would be more obvious.
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.
winged helmet yuck. you still get an upvote though.
Bad ass. Well done.
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.
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?
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.
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.

Best ... Poster ... Yet
So far these posters are 8-0. Walts gonna have to make these for the rest of his life.
Walt, once again you have out done yourself. Well done.
Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...
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.
Dairy-fed intellect and pure, unhinged sass.
You can download them for free and print them out at your own expense.
We should strive to keep thy name, of fair repute and spotless fame...
(Also, I'm not a dude)
Will do, and thanks for the quick response!
Posted a link to all of them if you want below
Unfortunately not - there were concerns about legal action from the University if they tried to sell them, if I recall correctly.
These only keep getting better
quite possibly my favorite poster yet. Reminds me of a garbage pail kids card.
Awesome poster Walt and it is now in my wallpaper collection that rotates every 30 mins.
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.
Nice job Walt. If week nine looks this good cant wait for twelve.
"Say my name."
balsy and classy rolled into one tortilla... a lot like Chipotle, you never know the outcome beforehand.
Lot of comments here saying the same with very good reason - this one is the best one yet & the Nebraska one was already the best one ever!!! Completely amazing - great f'ing work!!!

Best one yet! I feel like a proud father right now!
Here is the link to a blogpost of mine with links to all of the game posters so far.
So will they take down the extinct lion skeleton like they did with JoPa's statue?

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.
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.
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.
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...
Thanks again everyone. As always, these posters are a blast to make, and your kind words are very humbling.
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!
Beautiful! I love that the other posters are in this poster. (insert Inception/Xibit meme here)
Amazing poster, yet again.
God, these game posters are mint every week. Great stuff, always leaves me imagining what is on tap for the next week!

Been working Mids so just woke up. Immediately grabbed my computer to see the new poster. Another home run with this one!! Great work!
These just keep getting better every week. I think this is my new favorite. Well done.
