No more questions as to whether you know what you are talking about either!

Ha ha. Just kidding, but could not resist.

Touché!


These programs get scummier and scummier...

What is your point?  Now wonder why Coach Joe didn't pursue this job.

Many schools pay low base salaries but make up for it with other incentives. Anyway It's not all about joe jumping for money. He's in a unique position right now as the hottest coordinator in the game coaching at his dream school. He's on his way to the rose bowl and james Franklin will be contacted by NFL teams this year.

Joe would have taken a pay cut to go to an Underwhelming UConn job and Franklin will have zero NFL interviews this year.  Keep sitting in your arm chair and continue your QB'ing performance.

No, I am just watching you post these idiotic statements.   Franklin was basically put on probation last year due to his mediocre at best performance.  He hired Joe, catching lightning in a bottle and, in my opinion, Joe turned the Penn St offense and team around.  Franklin was on the verge of getting fired and thanks to Joe the rest is history.  How would Franklin go from almost being fired to now being an NFL head coach in one year?  if I am Penn St. I am worried about how to keep Coach Joe happy..

Coach Joe's stock is rising every time he shreds a big-time defense.  His offense's second half is incredible.  His first half wasn't too bad either.

PSU QB panicked on their last drive.  Bad Interception thrown into double coverage.

Offense in the 3rd quarter looked incredible, 4th quarter not so much. I assume you posted that early in the 4th or possibly during the 3rd.

I felt the play calling was too tentative in the 4th, though hard to say who made the call on that, as I assume the head coach has some say.

Completely agree with that, Ace. The next-to-last drive was much too conservative. I thought I saw the HC in the mix there as the offense prepared to go out. The USC QB was every much as touted. McSorley not nearly as accurate.
Is anyone else getting turned off by the constant "play under review" baloney? are we going to review every single play?

Despite the last second loss, Coach Joe was the offensive "star" of the game. How many times did the announcers refer to him...? How many TV shots of him whispering advice into Franklin's ear...!

Good show by Coach Joe.  Hard to complain about Coach Franklin  given his success this year, but you have to wonder if his rah rah act will get tired with players and alums.  By their demeanor on the sidelines, you would have thought that Coach Joe was the head coach and Franklin was the assistant.

I got the same impression. There were numerous sideline shots and Franklin looked like he was trying to make himself look as relevant as possible. I know our observations are biased, but thats the way it looked to me.

That's not unusual.  In most programs, assuming the coordinator is truly the play caller, the head coach stays out of the way and the coordinator runs the game.  Because of the nature of this game in particular (the pinball numbers), I'm sure Franklin was asking questions but JM was running the show.

I will start by saying I am not a Franklin fan at all. 

I think he is all rah-rah and hype and sells/acts that he is a better coach than he is.  I will say that in general he seems to be a good recruiter but I think that his personality plays into that as he is approaching 17-18 year olds and some will gravitate to the rah-rah.

Prior to this season there is no doubt that Franklin was on at least the warm seat and as a consequence made 2 great decisions: one preseasonn and one in season:
He hired Moorhead
He let Moorhead call the plays

I had spoken to many alums (some even former players) and their opinion of Franklin is well not so great to be nice.  They see what everyone else see, the rah-rah sideline antics and post game hype but they also recognize that he has brought in some talent.  He actually left Vandy with little talent when he left but fortunately Vandy has since gotten their footing back to some degree. 

If PSU did not perform well this year and started off slow next year, he was toast.  Fortunately for Franklin, Moorhead is playing an instrumental part in him keeping his high paying gig in State College.   I think Moorhead is in a great position to and if they have another stellar year, and they should as they have a core of returning starters he will likely he sought by other Power 5 programs.  This is not a prediction but I and I may be biased here, but I would not be surprised if Moorhead ends up being the head coach at PSU someday, but as a return from being successful at his next head coaching gig.  Having Moorhead at Happy valley has made the PSU faitful Happy again (Just not as much had they finished off USC).

Both you and ram spouse are clueless. Franklin took Vanderbilt to back to back 9 win seasons and just took a disfunctional penn state coming off probation and low scholarship numbers to the rose bowl. And oh he's beat Ohio state and won the big ten championship...

So yes he will draw major interest from the NFL and already has you idiots .. just because a few clowns on the Fordham message board "don't like him" doesn't change what he's accomplished

Just curious, who in the NFL has shown major interest?  This is interview season for the league; lots of decisions will be made in the coming weeks.

Just for clarification, PSU got all of its schollies back.  As far as Franklin goes, yes, he is a rah-rah coach, but I think that goes over well with many college players.  And he won't be the first successful HC to rely on assistants to do a majority of in-game work. 

That said, I'd be stunned if he even got an NFL interview.  His act will not go over with NFL players, and NFL HC's have too much on their plates to delegate so much to coordinators.

I get everything but your last sentence. If NFL head coaches have a lot on their plates, wouldn't they want to delegate . . . ?   Huh?

Yes they got all scholarships back but it takes a few years to build back your numbers , talent and reputation after a scandal like this.

Nobody here is an NFL GM so none of us know for sure who is interviewing or will get a job but Franklin was getting NFL interest when he was at Vandy won 9 games in back to back season at vandy and just took penn state to the rose bowl , won the b10 and he is a minority coach so he gets extra attention because of the Rooney rule.

So call him why you will a cheerleader a rah rah guy or whatever you want but the guy wins games in difficult situations. There are plenty of "X and 0" geniuses that become head coaches and it's a disaster.

Bashing Franklin is ridiculous.  The guy can coach.  I've seen him at clinics back in the day. The job he did at Vandy...  Are these guys kidding?   He's as solid as they come.  Great coaches surround themselves with great assistants and they let them do their jobs.   Ever hear of that guy Saban?  Or that other guy, Myer?  Their egos aren't so big that they don't bring in specialists who can update their thinking.   JM is doing a great job but to say he's the reason Penn State has moved forward again is a little bit of an over-reach.  There are a lot of reasons and of course he is a primary player.

Great examples, AOC...of guys who don't get mentioned for NFL jobs or who flopped in the NFL.
