Penn State coach James Franklin "doesn't have as much leverage as he thinks he has"

Veeeeeeery interesting news article in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about Franklin and his name being jostled around the USC & LSU camps and the warning being addressed to him in his current capacity as HC of the Nittany Lions.

When you lose to the Vandy of your conference how do you have much leverage

Also interesting is his change in agents.

Franklin's agent Jimmy Sexton is a master of making millions of dollars off of a little bit of leverage.

I will legit laugh out loud if LSU hires him cementing a perennial 8 win team every year.

A guy that won 9 games the last 2 of his 3 seasons at Vandy and has averaged over 10 wins a year in his 6 full (they only played 9 games last year) seasons at Penn State is only going to average 8 a year at LSU?

Good luck with that.

LSU has kicked the shite out of Georgia since Orgeron has been in charge. You think Franklin is a downgrade from him? Pretty dumb take.

Franklin has won 11, 11, 9 and 11 games his last four full seasons. And won 9 and 9 his last two years at fricking Vandy.

And has gone belly up in the B1G for the last 2 seasons.

Heads up, Penn State isn't Vandy.

There are few and far between that anyone can feel really good about. You never know who will fit into a program well and who will flame.

Just ask t.u

Good read from the thread OP. Link (within that article) to another article directed specifically to Mulkey Man and other LSU/ USC fans...

(www.dkpittsburghsports.com)LSU / USC fans, this writer has some news for you....

I really enjoyed beating his smug arse in the Citrus Bowl. Nobody is scared of that hire.

Wasn't the same said about Dan Mullen? Florida fans can't wait to get rid of him. Just because a coach does well at what is perceived as a lesser program does not mean they will do well at a bigger program.

Not saying you are wrong. Just saying your thought process could be off.

Now do Mullen. Tell us how he elevated MState so much and how he would bring Florida back to their glory days.

Losing a game doesn’t make someone a bad hire.
