It was a fun slugfest in the Cotton Bowl when Penn State and Memphis squared off. It looked iffy at times, but Penn State never relinquished the lead after going up 14-13 early on. Join me if you will for one last look at James Franklin's Twitter mentions during Penn State's eleventh win of the season as the Nittany Lions prevailed 53-39.

Mark, if nothing else you are one devout fan. You also eat ketchup on bread and you've been an interesting lead off each week. Godspeed.

And then there is Sue, who is just a sweet person and always sending her best, sans ketchup toast.

Then you have this troll. Sigh.

Fans wanted to run the ball and with patience, they would get their wish. They weren't wrong for the record.

Penn State finished the game with 396 rushing yards.

Clock management tweets! We're a fullback tweet away from Twitter bingo.

An early third-quarter interception and Tyler Bowen was getting mentioned.

With Ricky Rahne gone, fans have turned their attention to defensive coordinator Brent Pry.

We're getting closer to a fullback demand.

What is this optimism I have stumbled across?

He has moved on from his demand to fire Matt Limegrover.

That seems like a good way to end it. Optimism will be plenty high heading into 2020. A tip of the cap to the seniors for four memorable years and getting the program to a place few thought possible. Thanks for reading and as dark as it seemed at times with Don't @ Me, it's not all that bad. Go State!
