Penn State fought back to take a 17-14 lead in the 4th quarter against Michigan, but the Wolverines quickly struck back and took a 21-17 lead. That score would stand as the Nittany Lions lost their fourth game of the season to fall to 6-4. As you can imagine, the fans are frustrated, but much of the ire in James Franklin's Twitter mentions revolve around the failed fake field goal attempt. Some fans have lost patience and it was quite apparent in this week's Don't @ Me.

Things started out promising after the Nittany Lions converted a 4th down on a pass from Jordan Stoudt to Curtis Jacobs. If Charles was mad now, just wait a few minutes.

Charles along with everyone else was baffled at the fake field goal that nearly resulted in a Michigan touchdown.

To James Franklin's defense on the timeout, Penn State only had 10 guys on the field at that point.

Frustration only grew after a lackluster third quarter.

Well, I found one fan who was possibly okay with the fake field goal.

I believe if you made it this far, you get the point already.

Wow, what kind of setup are we looking at here?

If nothing else, we can always count on Sue to send a positive tweet.

That is all for this week and Rutgers is next on the schedule. If Penn State loses that one, I may pay someone to write this for me next week.
