    I would say he is but I dont think he will be fired this year because of the circumstances. He did a lot to undo what he was working towards in a short period of time. I wouldn't personally fire him because I dont know who we'd be able to hire that I'd consider better.

    Giant buyouts to try and make money off of your coach leaving, then having that coach suck is textbook "when keeping it real goes wrong."

    Who? He’s landed 1 of the top 16 recruits this year in state. Including a legacy instant starter on the OT, McCord who would start in two years, whom would’ve brought Harrison Jr with him. Missed an instant starter last year in Fleming, missed out on Jurkovec. Took Kunitz (who hasn’t played) instead missed out on Pitts

    matters on who leaves and if Franklin can change the mindset. You have great players and a whole lot of shit.

    Also look at Indiana, you dominated them and now Allen has them believing they can beat anyone. Momentum is a thing. Also NW last year vs this year

    He’s had a top-15 class almost every year he’s been there. For non-PSU fans that’s pretty impressive. Cuz there aren’t a lot of selling points (that are on-par or exceed what other programs can offer) to going to Penn State. So getting any big time players is 100 percent a testament to the staff.

    And unless I’m remembering incorrectly, Penn State has basically been in the top-10 in the polls and playing for Big 10 titles since he’s been there. And plenty of PSU fans saying he’s the best coach in the conference (post Urban).

    One bad season with opt outs, and now he’s a bum? Lol. All these NFL openings and potential better college programs looking for coaches. You really think you could get an upgrade? Some PSU fans confusing themselves for SEC fans lol.

    Not to mention, he’s made chicken salad out of chicken shit at QB through this tenure.

    the QB issue is a problem of his own making, but yea I think most of this is accurate.

    for the record I don’t think there’s many PSU fans that think there’s an immediate upgrade out there.

    No... and I don’t think any psu fan has called for it.

    “one bad season” is a bad take though. We’re not 2-3. We’re 0-5 getting blown out to Iowa and Maryland.

    The worst coach and recruiter of the Mcelwain era (Greg Nord) who somehow convinced Kyle Pitts to come to Florida.

    Franklin's actual coaching has always sucked and imo Moorhead got a major bump from guys like Feldman who hyped him up. I think he'll turn things around recruitingwise in future years but if he can't there's really no reason to keep him, he'll never beat anyone through x's and o's.

    Nowhere in the post
    "Don’t know if Franklin knows what a good QB looks like, based on the players he’s offered from previous years and how they turned out"
    do you talk about landing a good quarterback. you said he didnt know what they looked like based on the players who he has offered.

    How is “one bad season” a bad take? Lol. Franklin has literally had one bad season. And I’m sure you know this but based on your post I’ll have to state the obvious, doesn’t matter if you’re 6-7 or 0-13. It still only counts as one season. His team’s performance in the first 5 weeks of this year does NOT retroactively reduce his success in all the previous season. Dude was 7-6 his first two seasons which was decent based on transitioning to his players and still dealing with the Pedo scandal fallout. Since then he’s been 42-11, competed for Big 10 titles, and made BCS bowls. That pretty damn good. And doesn’t matter how bad you look this year, it doesn’t change those numbers.

    So yes, he’s had one bad season. And I’ll need you to explain to me how that’s a bad take.

    Plus, not having Parsons there is probably a bigger reason why you’re 0-5 than anything Franklin is doing. Ask any team/coach how much of a difference there is in effort and attitude when your “Alpha” player is on the field.
