Former Penn State football lettermen took to Twitter on Saturday night (and into the early morning hours) to celebrate the Nittany Lions’ Big Ten Championship win over Wisconsin and share their thoughts on Penn State’s No. 5 College Football Playoff ranking.

Linebacker Michael Mauti and cornerback Stephon Morris, senior leaders of the 2012 team affected by the NCAA sanctions, shared congratulations and sheer joy at the win:

Former defensive tackle Anthony Adams, currently a Big Ten Network analyst and co-host of BTN Tailgate, was non-stop tweeting videos and reactions at the game, and at on-field and locker room celebrations.

Spice had so much fun dancing in the stands that he ripped his pants. Nice green plaid boxers!

Spice didn’t stop dancing though, and showed those youngsters on the 2016 team that he’s still got smooth moves.

Former running back Larry Johnson donned his favorite Penn State gear and grabbed a bottle of champagne, as we all did:

Chafie Fields, a former PSU wide receiver, took his congratulations it a step further, pushing for Coach James Franklin to earn NCAA Coach of the Year Honors

Heisman candidate and former running back Ki-Jana Carter, part of the undefeated 1994 team and 1994 Big Ten Championship team, seemed to never have a doubt:

Keith Conlin, also a member of the undefeated 1994 team and host of the web-based sports talk show The Goon Show, was pretty happy yet salty about the win and made sure to tell the Big Ten and NCAA President Mark Emmert what he REALLY thought (NSFW language).

Some lettermen also shared their thoughts on Penn State’s number 5 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings and a berth in the Rose Bowl. They’re proud of their Nittany Lions but let’s just say that many felt Penn State’s 2016 team deserved more after their Big Ten Championship win.

Former quarterback Todd Blackledge, currently an ESPN analyst, and who led the Nittany Lions to a National Championship in 1982, reminded fans and players that a Rose Bowl berth is a huge accomplishment:

Former linebacker Lavar Arrington congratulated the top four teams, but shared a subliminal message after seeing the CFP rankings:

PSU defensive tackle Brandon Noble, part of the undefeated 1994 team that captured the Big Ten Championship that year, suggested an expanded playoff.

Finally, former wide receiver OJ McDuffie (1989-1992) didn’t mince words (NSFW) on his disappointment in Penn State not making it into the final four of the CFP:

In any case, congratulations to the 2016 Nittany Lions! Let’s go win the Rose Bowl!
