Football is a brutal sport. It's so much so many parents are beginning to not let their youngsters play the game. The NFL has worked hard to reshape it's image in recent years by enforcing rules that penalize overly rough plays. This has come under much scrutiny to purists who have accused the league of softening the game and making it less fun to watch. Some would argue that college football is infinitely more entertaining than the NFL now, especially if your alma mater is playing. It's considered to be more of a skill variant now than it's NFL counter part. Less focus on being huge, more focus on just playing the actual game.
But in a nail biting game between the Ohio State Buckeyes and Penn State Nittany Lions a few days ago, the action in the bleachers overshadowed what was happening on the field.
Abby Grau was seated in section 9C while cheering on her Bucks. After noticing a pattern some folks were making their way up past her, she whipped out her phone and captured this gem to share with the world. It seems whoever designed the stadium is the ultimate troll because by the time they got here they would all fall victim to the very same step each time.
And it seems like news of that wonky step isn't new.
Can confirm 9C stairs are extremely difficult. That was my section in 2014.— Jonah Larsen (@JRunnerSub5) October 30, 2017
People were mesmerized.
The best part was when the video made its way to the loved ones of the step's victims.
And some victims recognizing themselves.
A grand time was had by all.
This is literally the most specific thing I have seen go viral— James 🌊 (@jamesxanton) October 30, 2017
But why is everyone tripping on that step specifically?
Pretty sure this is due to the renovation from the late 90's. They added to the entire Cdeck, wondering if this happens in each section— #SaveTheCrew (@Docs_world) October 30, 2017
Buahaha. Just be like 1/2" taller than the previous 500 steps. Muscle memory can be a B lol— Omar Collins (@ramocol33) October 31, 2017
Good times. Hopefully no one ends up fixing the step so we get another one of these in the future.
