Hiring a Scandal

Is Mr Franklin the right man for the job at this time in PSU football history?

Another day in paradise. God hunts on Sundays.

Re: Hiring a Scandal

Would you rather have a coach who did nothing or a coach who was away on vacation and immediately booted the accused off the team upon his return to campus?

Re: Hiring a Scandal

My understadning is he acted quickly when he heard about the incient by kicking 5 guys off the team. Seems rational and appropriate.

Re: Hiring a Scandal

You bet he is. And I fully agree with the article above. Penn state deserves this. As soon as the ncaa sanctions are lifted PSU WILL BE A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH. A solid program a good quarterback and now a good coach. Even all the hatred cant destroy psu

Re: Hiring a Scandal

I see PSU is still all about football and everything else just happens. They did not learn the lesson and sanctions should not be reduced. just my observation.

Better clean your glasses or get your eyes checked.

What, specifically, do you see occuring at Penn State that makes you believe this?

Holy Cheese and Crackers!

Re: Hiring a Scandal

Some of Franklin's players are accused of rape. Emails from the coaches are being subpoenaed. He may be totally inicent but PSU goes and hires him anyway. what happens if down the line 1 of his coaches tried to fix it for the players. Is this not why PSU would not even talk to Bradley? PSU needs to be hyper-sensitive about anything that may tarnish their image. But No! They go out and do what is best for FOOTBALL. I see not 1 PSU fan objected to this hiring. May of the professors have written letters and OPED pieces stating this exact issue. Many in the media nation wide have also expressed concern that PSU is taking a risk that is not worth it. I hope Franklin is totally cleared but why take the chance he isn't, when PSU has so much to lose if he ain't.

Re: Hiring a Scandal

I'm betting PSU's admins and legal council had a ton of communication with LE and such from Vandy. I'm pretty sure they covered their butts. Some people wouldn't be happy if PSU hired the Good Lord himself. I hear what you're saying, but the hiring of a football coach is usually a decision that is made for the best of football, right? They didn't hire Franklin to be president, they hired him for the best interests of the football program.

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,
Look in their eyes ma you’ll see me.
