Penn State Plays Ohio State Today, So Let’s Watch Deon Butler’s Awesome 2008 Pregame Speech

"We are Penn State. We are not normal. We are legends."

The biggest gameday of the year is finally here.

No Penn State game is bigger than the matchup with Ohio State. We ran a post yesterday where we had a few former players discuss the game, and everyone said that it is huge. Nothing sums up how big this game is quite like Deon Butler's legendary pregame speech before the Nittany Lions took on the Buckeyes in 2008. Hell, it's so great that we decided to take the most famous line from it and throw it onto our Facebook page.

So with there being a ton of time between now and the kickoff at 8:00 p.m., take a few seconds and watch this video. Then watch it again. And then, after you've watched it 12 more times, watch it a few more.

"We are Penn State. We are not normal. We are legends. People will tell their kids about us."

Go State, beat the hell out of the Buckeyes.
