The bar is being lowered on the low point for Penn State football. It's really bad, but it's consistent with 2020 and the nightmare carries on. The Nittany Lions are lifeless and their record reflects that, but we will carry on. James Franklin is having the worst year of his career and his decision to punt late in the 4th quarter was a depressing metaphor for where Penn State is.

As for Twitter, well, it's bad after a close win and it's even worse now. James Franklin might never want to check his mentions so allow me to head into never neverland.

Even through all this, Mark continues to eat gross things.

When it rains, it pours.

Not even at kickoff yet.

And we're off!

A lot going on here including his Twitter user name and a typo.

The early touchdown was yet another false positive.

Not going well.

A semblance of normalcy.

Minnesota beat Penn State last season.

Three games remain.

It's really bad.

Tom has been consistently mad.

Feeling bad to be honest.

Okay, we know how this ends and it's not good. Penn State is 0-5 and misery loves company so they face Michigan next weekend. James Franklin has many questions to answer, but I don't think he'll address them on Twitter. Happy Thanksgiving!
