Definitely was a tale of 2 half's. When they failed on the second 4 and, and ended giving Wis a short field score I thought maybe Franklin was running plays out of the Doug Pederson playbook.
Second half all you can say is WOW, PSU almost scored at will and pushed that 300 lb plus line around and dealt with the 2 best college linebackers in the country like they were the practice squad.
The 17 graduating seniors will be missed and deserve this ride for sticking out the difficult events that happened after they signed their letter of intent, but the most interesting thing is watching this team grow.
They have a lot to look forward to and if Franklin does what he does best, recruit, then they should be back as the Beast of the East.
I know I was not on the Franklin bandwagon, especially to the tune of a 10 year contract for a unproven commodity, and could claim his success this season as "even a blind squirrel finds a nut once and awhile" but that would be unfair to minimize the work these kids put into this season.
Hopefully the nomination committee can also look at the character this team has and not feel they still need to be taught a lesson for Sandusky's crimes and really will allow the best teams to play for the championship.
Guess I was wrong about the integrate of the committee http://www.espn.com/college-football...otball-playoff
