Don’t @ Me: A Look at James Franklin’s Twitter Mentions vs. Iowa

Penn State was close to putting Iowa away, but as we’ve come to know, it’s never that easy. A fumble at the Iowa five opened the door, and upped the stress levels for Nittany Lion fans. Penn State held on in the fourth quarter for a 30-24 win, but there is no rest for the weary as I took a gander at James Franklin’s mentions on Twitter.

Confidence levels were high.

Hope he wasn’t looking for a stress-free fourth quarter.

Good stuff early.

It’s been maddening watching Penn State not recover those fumbles.

Iowa got to 14 points with two safeties, a field goal and a fake field goal to a defensive lineman for a touchdown.

Some free advice for Franklin to consider.

It was a weird first quarter.

All is well.

Firing the coaches mid-game still remains as an elusive feat.

Each week the tweets for firing James Franklin become more prevalent. 

Penn State continues to shoot themselves in the foot with mistakes, but this is also the first time I can recall Franklin being referred to as a hillbilly.

James Franklin’s timeout at the end of the half was a curious decision. Luckily, Jake Pinergar made the next one as well and set a new career-long in the process.

After Trace McSorley got hurt, some fans were upset he was back in to start the second half.

Penn State fumbled at their own five yard line, and the fourth quarter seemed like the same type of game they would lose. The tweets were pouring in, but in the end, Penn State prevailed with a win.

Even with the win, James Franklin’s mentions were mostly negative.

I was able to find the positive one.

On to Michigan next week. I am sure there will be some reasoned tweets at the head coach.
