Oh and FOUR, and it's hard to find many positives on the 2020 season for Penn State. For the third straight week, the Nittany Lions fell behind early and continued to shoot themselves in the foot throughout the first half. As you might expect, patience is wearing thin for fans on Twitter and they had plenty to say to head coach James Franklin after another frustrating loss. 

Away we go as fans react to the new low point of the James Franklin era.

We haven't featured Mark yet this season, but he continues to eat his weird breakfast.

I am afraid I have some bad news.

One of these wishes was granted.

Nebraska marched right down the field to take a 7-0 lead.

After a first quarter interception by Sean Clifford, fans were asking for a much needed change.

Tom's frustration continues to grow each passing week.

Time to pay up Sam.

Well Sean, how does a very frustrating red zone offense sound to you?

Two of many tweets with this sentiment.

This season has gone worse than the most pessimistic predictions.

Penn State's red zone offense was a total mess on Saturday.

That's about as nice of a tweet left as the Nittany Lions are now 0-4 and face Iowa at home on Saturday. In a season where everything has seemingly gone wrong, James Franklin and his staff need to find some answers and quick. The Twitter mentions have always been a bit over the top, but this season, much of the criticism has been warranted.
