Those watching HBO's 'Mare of Easttown' probably saw the Penn State game on the TV in Episode 3....

Hear John Oliver mentions the Jonathan Sutherland haircut letter on a recent episode...

Oliver wrapped up his short monologue by sarcastically comparing the hair of Sutherland to the short style of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, stating: “I know it sounds ridiculous, but it’s almost as if the haircut doesn’t f-----g matter.”

You can watch the video in the link provided - starts around 7:50 mark (I haven't watched it yet):


Listening to the Serial podcast 'Nice White Parents' (about NYC public schools), the narrator mentions all the classes in this one school are named after teacher alma maters - and she noted three of them were called 'Penn State' (then the kids in the class did a kind of 'We Are Penn State' cheer).

I posted about this show in one of the "Binge" threads, a sci-fi show on Prime called The Lost Room has a PSU reference in episode one. Two detectives travel through the room and end up at a live PSU game after the one detective says "Penn State is playing," it looked like they were playing MN in 2005 at the time.
