You’re not in the microscope as much

This is a humorous blend of “under the microscope” and “in the spotlight”, both meaning to be the center of attention and examined closely.   The sports world strikes again with its treasure trove of malaphors.   One of the Penn State quarterbacks transferred to a smaller school, Robert Morris, and had this to say:

“I really don’t think it’s been that big of an adjustment for me, going from Division I-A to I-AA, but it is different being here,” Jones said last week before a Robert Morris spring practice. “It’s a much smaller school than Penn State. You’re not in the microscope as much.”

Thanks to Justin Taylor for spotting this subtle gem.
