James Franklin, Pennsylvania State
« on: October 12, 2017, 04:44:54 pm »

I read Dennis Dodd report today claiming Texas A&M is going to try to make a run at him if Sumlin is fired.  Why not us? 

Oh, and in before 'Penn State is his dream job....'

Well 1 he's not leaving penn state

and 2 he's not leaving penn state

but the big reason we shouldn't waste our time is that penn state is a way better place to be than both A&M and Arkansas

and, it's not as big of a reason as 1-3, but he's not leaving penn state.

Even if A&M goes after him he’s not leaving Penn State.

Yep.  He’s home and at a blue blood.  Unless an Alabama, Clemson or such comes calling, no reason to even consider a move.

This will get Franklin a nice raise, and get A&M nothing.

Agree.  Unless the Big of the North drops off he'll always struggle.  You have to think a lot of players won't consider playing there that would have pre Sandusky.  I'm sure a lot of coaches won't consider going there now, too.

Did Hogville say he's not leaving Penn State?  I would agree; he's not leaving PSU

We, technically they will get something.

Turned down is something.

Anyone who's spent time around rabid Penn State fans quickly realizes it's a cult.

Do you want a mob of cult crazies mad at you for stealing their coach?

I've never been around many Penn State fans but I'd put aTm's cult craziness up against anyone.

Maybe Lanny will create a new forum for all of these type posts that clutter the boards.  It's almost asinine to believe Franklin is going to leave PSU for Arkansas.

He took a vandy team in 3 years and won 2 bowl games, finished in the top 25 twice, and won 9 games in back to back seasons....Absurd to say he's smoke and mirrors.

About the closest to his dream job as humanly possible.  He's from PA and Penn State is still a viable football program operating in a recruiting hotbed and essentially owns the East Coast in regards to the most popular football program.

I like threads about James Franklin.  It gives me a chance to share my theory that James Franklin is in fact Pitbull.  Have you ever seen them both at the same time?

Remember when PSU had to fire their coach because he helped cover up and was complacent in the systematic abuse and rape of multiple young boys for decades, and the fans flipped news trucks and rioted in protest?

Them folks in Happy Valley are legit psychopaths.

James is from Pennsylvania.  Penn State was his dream job.   Kinda like Meyer at OSU.  James isn't leaving happy valley anytime soon.

No, we should aim for Nick Saban as our HC, Chip Kelly for OC, and Brent Venables for DC, as long as we're being delusional.

A person like that has no business on our campus.


Penn State is obviously less concerned about such things.

Why leave? He is at the premier football school in the Northeast. He is winning big. Oh, and recruiting....

He is not going anywhere. Just idiot reporters speculating.
