Penn State beat Kent State 63-10 and tallied 667 yards of offense. The Nittany Lions are 3-0 and the head to Illinois Friday. James Franklin's Twitter mentions are usually mellow for a game like this, but it has become my duty to double check.

Not only did they get a win, but a 95-yard touchdown to celebrate her special day.

Those noon games can require something extra to get the day going.

In regard to the gift basket sent James Franklin, a game vs. Mississippi State would be fun to watch.
Anyone have a brick wall that needs to be taken down?

The hype video has inspired a whole new generation of demolition men.
The Penn State D-Line is DREADFUL right now. Light a fire under their asses @coachjfranklin

By the tweet, you know the game has started and people are antsy.

Look, Mike, I don't go through these tweets for my own health I can assure you. These are valuable suggestions that James Franklin's surely reads.
I disagree with @coachjfranklin taking Miles Sanders out. Use Mark Allen on 3rd down or put him in late in the game. Stop ruining RB momentum.

Mark Allen finished with 62 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries, which equates to a 5.6 yards per carry.
You have Trace in up 38 but freshman in up 14? @coachjfranklin

This is a perfect example of "you can't please everyone."
I love how @coachjfranklin is engaged with every part of the game but still doesnt appear to micromanage. Such a great leader
— Ka'Lee Strawbridge (@Forever_KaLee) September 15, 2018
Quite the change from years ago when micromanaging was one of the biggest criticisms against Franklin.
— Will (@will_conroy25) September 15, 2018
Fair question, but tagging the other account other than James Franklin is questionable at best.
Love you @coachjfranklin

A 63-10 win has the mentions in a euphoric mood, but this is a fickle situation as the season goes on.
— CAITLIN. (@itsjustcaitlin) September 15, 2018
Well, Joe Moorhead did the shopping this week with the gift basket.
My only concern from todays performance is @coachjfranklin last vertical jump. He has to get better. Time2GetGalted
— Justin Grayek (@JG_WeAre) September 15, 2018
James Franklin likely looks at his mentions and this one will stick with him I am sure.

This is a really good quote because regardless of the score, the team knows they can improve. Just like the App State game, a win is a win and the fans will let the coaches figure the rest out. And if the coaches don't, they can always take to Twitter for some top-notch advice.
