Our favorite ugly mascot might not make the Rose Bowl trip. The Daily Collegian reports that James Sheep, who wears the Nittany Lion outfit at Penn State games, was arrested on campus on November 22 at 3:15 AM and charged with DUI. As you might recall, Sheep had to report for duty a mere 10 hours later to perform his mascotitudinal function in the Moo U. game. The officer who made the arrest had observed that Sheep was driving a clown car overloaded with other drunks piled on top of each other and obstructing the driver’s view.
This is a great switcheroo: a Sheep in lion’s clothing who is responsible for generating spirit is arrested for consuming spirits instead.
Oh, the humanity!
