We know the score and it wasn't pretty. After Penn State lost to Michigan 42-7 on Saturday, and if you've ever read this article before, you know exactly where this is going. Let's just get right to James Franklin's twitter mentions vs. Michigan where he has been relieved of his coaching duties by the social media users.
@coachjfranklin dont screw this one up in the 4th quarter, coach smart, dont be yourself.

Well, you didn't have to worry about this on Saturday.
Play calling is trash. 3rd and long, perfect time for a screen. Nope, drop back pass and sack

Penn State faced a lot of third and long situations all day vs. the ferocious Michigan defense.
That was a first down and @coachjfranklin didnt challenge ... hes the worst

HOW DO YOU NOT REVIEW THAT?! @coachjfranklin please leave and go coach a sub par program, thats what you are good at. HORRIBLE coaching YET AGAIN
— Matt Sheridan (@MGSheridan33) November 3, 2018
After Trace McSorley scrambled it looked close to a first down and Franklin missed a chance to challenge the spot.
@coachjfranklin Do y'all practice or do you just wing it on gameday?
— Cameron Geresti (@CGeresti) November 3, 2018
Not much working for Penn State all day.

Everyone was getting more and more frustrated, even a former star in Larry Johnson.

TAKE THE BALL AT THE 35 YARD LINE!!!!!! @coachjfranklin

Also kind of sick of @coachjfranklin and his decision making
— Aaron Jon Harpster (@HarpsterJon) November 3, 2018
We're not even out of the first half yet.
Just bench Trace and let Tommy play at this point! Trace is hurt and you can tell! @coachjfranklin is a moron if he doesnt see it!

McSorley battled, but the fans were looking for any spark.
@coachjfranklin i heard Galen Hall is available. Maybe he can fix this pathetic offense. Rahne terrrible.

Now this has gone too far.
— Al (@Alveeno007) November 3, 2018
Probably should put a healthy quarterback in @coachjfranklin
— Jaromir Lager (@JonCheddar) November 3, 2018
Put tommy in @coachjfranklin
— Horizon Kunkletron (@Kunkletron) November 3, 2018
As the game got out of hand, the handling of the quarterbacks became mysterious, but when Stevens got his chance, an interception for a touchdown was the nail in the coffin.
— Ben Leahey (@BRob211216) November 3, 2018
Penn state cant fire @coachjfranklin quick enough
— dennis hocker (@dshocker10) November 3, 2018
Counting down the days until @coachjfranklin is gone. Absolute embarrassment of a coach and is destroying the program year after year and costing us our spot in the playoff.
— Mindess (@US_mindless) November 3, 2018
I think you get the idea.
I want this to be a BLOW OUT. I want a 35+ win. I want a shutout. I want it to be so bad that people are calling for @coachjfranklin 's job afterwards.

Geno, they call for it even after wins, but you got what you wanted.
Next week vs. Wisconsin and really, it can't get much worse that that one. The fatigue of three losses has worn down many fans, but we'll be back in search of some more positive tweets.
