Homecoming started out with a bang as Penn State darted out to a quick lead. After fifteen minutes, Penn State lost all momentum on offense but held on to a 28-point win thanks to the defense. It looked like a Maryland redux, but then came to a screeching halt. With that being said, let's take a look at James Franklin's Twitter mentions to get a pulse on the real-time fans.
Even though it was a noon game, James Franklin took advantage of the time to head out and recruit on Friday night.
If it's not traffic on Atherton, traffic outside of the stadium was an issue and why not send a tweet to the guy with no control over any of it.
.@coachjfranklin the dome is especially shiny today. Love it. Get that W— K (@kmart93) October 5, 2019
Chilly morning, but the sun shined all over the head of the head football coach.
It was never in doubt, but with a night road game at Iowa, there is plenty to work on this week.
@coachjfranklin why is @JORDANSTOUT92 not the primary FG kicker? Are we resting him for his booming kickoffs?— WeDontKnowTheGodDamnWords (@WDKTGDW) October 5, 2019
I dont understand the strategy behind making stout the LION of the special teams unit#PSUHomecoming #psu
If you watched the game, this was when Jake Pinegar missed a field goal.
Noah Cain has stood out and the fan(s) want him to be the primary back.
@coachjfranklin someone please take the play sheet out of franklins hands.— Chris Rich (@crich425) October 5, 2019
Hey @coachjfranklin .... how about we run the ball a little bit, huh?— Leroy Boyer (@Pubsportsboss) October 5, 2019
@coachjfranklin Fire Ricky Rahne NOW. Too predictable, plays not to lose.— Tom Dougherty Jr (@TomDoughertyJr) October 5, 2019
@coachjfranklin do you need someone to come in and just dish out truth? That way you can be all love and hugs. An example...@RickyRahne youre play calling sucks. @CoachLimegrover your offensive line wont execute. #PennState thank god for @CoachPry_LBU s defense— Keith Ball (@kball1027) October 5, 2019
Well, this is more like what I'm used to seeing.
I think I speak for all of Nittany nation when I say, just because we're up 28-7 and Clifford has thrown an INT, we cant go conservative on offense. We always have to keep our foot on the gas and attack because that's when our offense plays their best @coachjfranklin @RickyRahne— PSUFan Account (@107kUnrivaled) October 5, 2019
When we lose 2/3 coming up because of your exploitable calls I want your job gone @coachjfranklin— Jesse Ansbro (@JesseSiao) October 5, 2019
This has escalated quickly.
Penn State heads to Iowa next week and the fans will certainly be back to voice their opinions on Twitter. Expect nothing less than some angry tweets when the Nittany Lions take on a Hawkeye team looking for revenge.
