After Penn State's frustrating loss to Indiana 36-35, I knew exactly what I would get when I jumped into James Franklin's Twitter mentions. After a long wait, fans were excited for Penn State's season to begin, but it's off to a rough 0-1 start with Ohio State looming.
I will spare you all needing to look at everything I saw but just look at how they changed throughout the game.
Be careful what you wish for Kat.
Penn State baseball coach Rob Cooper sending the team some good wishes.
There is clearly a difference in Offensive principles for PSU this year. Really think what makes @coachjfranklin an elite coach is he hires and empowers his staff.— Dustin Floyd (@DtotheF) October 24, 2020
Another positive tweet, things going well after Penn State jumps to a 7-0 lead.
@coachjfranklin how can you be so bad at your job????— Jack McCarthy (@jackmccarthy43) October 24, 2020
And just like that, Penn State is down 10 points heading into the half.
Por favor @coachjfranklin esteja muito puto com todos nesse vestirio— Nittany Lions Brasil (@pennstatebrasil) October 24, 2020
Penn State Brasil knows James Franklin is going to be heated headed into halftime.
.@coachjfranklin has the team practiced at all this year yet?— #2 (@washeduptiger02) October 24, 2020
Patience starting to wear thin on many fans in the mentions.
@coachjfranklin coach I'm a life long PSU fan. Your offensive coordinator needs to go. The play calls offensively were terrible. BAD VERY BAD!— pastorjeff (@knepper_jeffrey) October 24, 2020
Calls to replace Kirk Ciarrocca in his first game on the Nittany Lion staff.
@coachjfranklin fix this. This is one of the most embarrassing games of your tenure . Unacceptable— Ray Van Dusen (@Ravan22) October 24, 2020
Penn State made so many mistakes in this game, which ultimately sealed their fate.
@coachjfranklin thats on you boss— Matt Hair (@HairHairmatt) October 24, 2020
The late Devyn Ford touchdown set up Indiana for an improbable comeback.
@coachjfranklin Coach. Please please please. Hire a time management guy who knows game analytics. Not falling down on the 3 yard line is simply an inexcusable mistake. Someone has to let the lads know. It was a 1 point game !! That being said. Beat OSU !!— Seve Jordan (@Sevej23Seve) October 24, 2020
More complaints regarding James Franklin's clock management.
It was a rough loss, but some are taking it worse than others.
@coachjfranklin youre a joke. Most vanilla offensive scheming every year. You have two runs. Read option and qb draw. Cant wait to lose by 74 next week.— Nate mancuso (@nate_mancuso) October 24, 2020
I think you get the point. That is all for this week, but with the Buckeyes heading to Happy Valley this week, Penn State has to rebound quickly. There is certainly some cleaning up to do and they must do so in a hurry or next week's Don't @ Me will look roughly the same.
