App State Makes Embarrassing Mistake Involving Hall of Famer

Appalachian State Football is in the spotlight right now.

After beating Texas A&M on the road the weekend before last, ESPN’s famous College Gameday held its show on Saturday at the App State campus in Boone, North Carolina.

The students and fan community were not disappointed.

Additionally, the Mountaineers won their game against Troy with a dramatic walk-off Ave Maria.

The reverse emotion of the game-winning radio call was a Troy sorority.

As good as Saturday was for the Appalachian State, they were responsible for one embarrassing mistake.

Though he won several FCS national championships before moving up to FBS, the most notable win in App State football history was an upset win at 5th-ranked Michigan in 2007.

The game ended with a blocked field goal attempt by safety Corey Lynch.

Lynch is one of the biggest players in program history.

He was a three-time All-American and a three-time National Champion with the Mountaineers.

Corey Lynch played 5 seasons in the NFL. He was honored by his alma mater during Saturday’s game.

There was only one problem.

App State released a picture of Pro Football Hall of Famer and current general manager of the San Francisco 49ers, John Lynch.

Corey Lynch himself commented on the snafu via his Instagram page.

If you’re wondering if they look the same, the answer is no.
