WATCH: Penn State Student’s Backflip Attempt Fails Spectacularly

The #5 ranked Penn State Nittany Lions (11-2) are getting ready to take on the #9 ranked USC Trojans (9-3) in the Rose Bowl. “The Granddaddy of Them All” is the oldest bowl game in college football, and students are understandably super pumped up for the game. One Penn State student let his passion get the best of him, though. Watch this daredevil, presumably with too much school spirit and liquid courage coursing through his veins, butcher a backflip attempt at a tailgate.

We are Penn State 🌹💀

WE ARE…going to need a stretcher. What a goddamn moron. The good news is that his neck broke his fall, but the bad news is that he’s going to have to watch the Rose Bowl at a hospital. At least he did his part to solidify Penn State’s reputation for hilarious flip fails. Remember this jabroni from last year?

Wisconsin has “Jump Around,” Ohio State dots the “i,” and Penn State covers up child molestation and injures themselves doing flips. What a proud tradition.
