PSU will name HC tomorrow. He is on his way there now. Who he is isn't known but its coming out tomorrow. I wonder if Al is in Miami today?

Why would they offer him a job only to not hire him? They just followed procedure, but they have already made a decision. Sounds like a technicality.

That sucks. He is a good coach.

Hearing its James Franklin, Rev. Penn St. increased its offer to a point that Vanderbilt couldn't match.

Apparently people were tracking a Penn St. plane which was in Destin, FL, a summer home area for Franklin and it went back to Penn St. When they disembarked new coach was supposed to be there with them but there was no coach, just Pres, AD.

Does this mean Franklin turned them down and they are going back to Golden?

Lol

Holy **** this might be a huge day for the B1G tomorrow. Nuss is coming from Alabama to Michigan to take over for Borges as OC. Paid his ass top five money for assistant coaches.
Franklin might take over at PSU. Maybe now the conference will perk up as a whole.

Apparently in Franklin's contract with Vandy, it had something where Franklin requested like $30 million in upgrades, which was granted, and now Vandy is going to seek that money if anybody nabs Franklin from them.

Would seem like those upgrades would help them hire a quality coach and keep winning. If they can keep winning they should easily make back the money in ticket and merchandise sales. Loser mentality if ever I've seen it.

Fan support for the program hasn't been as strong as Franklin had hoped.
Even with that though, he did one hell of a job there and they should do very well after him if they don't go cheap again.

Franklin was the first guy they truly paid to be HC and put the athletic department behind him fully.

Vandy countered PSU with a 10 year 50 million dollar deal apparently...

Also, that Franklin guy is creepy.

Yeah but he views PSU as a place where he can win a national title.
Vandy was already paying him at least 4 mil a season, some believe possibly 4.2 mil with incentives. So them going up to 5 mil isn't shocking.

Because he has had NCAA sanctions at every stop. He is a dumb ass ego maniacal jag off.
But he is a great recruiter and OC when he is being reigned in.

Literally every program cheats. Every single one of them.

If anyone can reign him in...it's Saban.

Won't happen in his lifetime.

Will he win more games at PSU?

Probably...but a national title? Never.

You're joking right? The bowl ban is only two more years and the facilities they have are insane.
In terms of resources,facilities and putting their might into the program. PSU is like Texas of the East.
Under Franklin they will probably be hoisting that trophy within the next 6 years.

Yes but every program he goes to is in the top 3 of self reported violations.
He ended up getting USC slapped with sanctions under Carroll, he got Tennessee slapped with them during his one and only year there and he still had more issues while at USC as HC.

Everyone cheats(especially in the SEC) but he is a stupendously idiotic cheater.

No...I'm not joking. Penn State will not win a National Title under Franklin or anyone else...This program is not the type of program a coach goes to to win a title. Better exposure...sure. More wins...sure. Maybe compete for a conference title every 5 years....maybe. But a national title? L.O.L. Nope.

Hahahahaha...you think they will win in 6 years? The program will still be recovering 6 years from now. What they got is the closest thing to a death penalty that we will ever see. Penn State if forever tainted.

Love the Doug Nussmeier hire....it looked like Al Borges was going to back for next season, so this was a pleasant surprise.

Nussmeier is also an excellent recruiter.

Interesting that PSU hired a guy who had a rape scandal in his program, after what went on there that got them in this mess in the first place.
