Penn State lost to Ohio State 27-26 on Saturday night in what was one of the best college football games of the season. The biggest moment of the game however, with Penn State down 27-26 and facing a 4th down and 5 head coach James Franklin called a timeout to draw up a play to get a 1st down play. QB Trace McSorley who had broken the single game record for total yardage would have been a good choice to get the ball in his hands. However, Franklin drew up a run play, it got stopped and Penn State lost. Then this bizarre moment happened after the game while Franklin and Penn State were walking to the locker room:

Honestly, how dumb. The fan didn’t even say anything outrageous and Franklin is acting like a big baby:
Then Franklin explained and blamed the play call on himself:

I like James Franklin. However, when talking about being “great” let’s start by not trying to fight your own fans.
