Special thanks to PennStateBasketball at Black Shoe Diaries for the picture (click on it to enlarge).  And no.  Your eyes are not deceiving you: "Everyone Wear White" to the Temple game.

Well, not so fast...

A ticket misprint showed the September 25 Penn State v. Temple game as the White House game for 2010.

But a White House game was never actually scheduled for the 2010 football season, Paternoville President Alex Cohen said.

"Honestly, it was just a ticket misprint," Cohen (senior-marketing) said. "There was no White House planned for this year."

Even with no White House game scheduled, fans should still get excited and can still wear white to the game, Associate Athletic Director Greg Myford said.

In the past, the whiteout or "White House" has been staged against high profile foes like Notre Dame, Illinois and Iowa. Temple's reputation would have made it a curious selection for 2010, so it's no surprise that the athletic department is trying to clear up the mistake.

That said, the situation is no less humorous. "Wear White...no, don't wear white...well, you can wear white, you just don't HAVE to wear white...even though you don't technically have to wear white even if we were telling you to wear white, which we're not, even though it really looks like we're telling you to wear white..."
