Penn State QB Deletes Social Media After Multiple Death Threats From Own Fans

The more things change, the more they stay the same. 

In Penn State, we are often told the culture has changed. They've moved on from the Joe Pa years to a new era with James Franklin. Sean Clifford may disagree with 

SOURCE-"I usually delete closer to games, but I completely deleted it after the Minnesota game," Clifford told reporters at media availability. "It's kind of sad to say but you know how fans sometimes get. ... It gets a little crazy. I was kind of, I guess, sick and tired of getting death threats, and some pretty explicit and pretty tough-to-read messages.

"I was kind of, I guess, sick and tired of getting death threats"

That's kind of....completely fair?

Clifford has been great this season. He ranks 11th in QBR. 22 TDs to 6 INTs. 5 TDs on the ground. His game against Minnesota was probably the worst of his season, 3 INTs. 

However, the transition from Trace McSorely to Clifford has been great. He has Penn State in the playoff race in his first season as a starter. Sending him death threats truly doesn't make any sense, unless you're from Happy Valley, of course.
