JF seems like a decent guy...for sure he handled his leaving about as good as it gets. Normally when people are trying to do the right thing, they are in fact good people.

Meh.

Any fan base would have acted the same if their football team got put on probation like that.

Actually kinda surprised the students didn't burn down the campus.

Agree to disagree then. I also believe the bowl ban was unnecessary and punishing the wrong people, but I guess that makes me "disgustingly inhuman" too.

I dislike James Franklin and don't think "classy" is a word that can describe him. That's just me though. Glad he's no longer in the SEC.

In Paterno's own words the coverup was done specifically to protect the football program, when there was more outrage at the NCAA than at Penn State there was something seriously wrong. Children are more important than football.

That's classy. And worthy of respect.
sorry very little respect here, he's already flipped 2 Vandy committs to PSU comitts and reportedly his staff has been recruiting for PSU the last few days even before he was officially coach in Happy Valley

Yea i agree....BUT if you're recruiting a kid for one maybe even two years, I'd try and flip them to my new school as well.

Penn State made a great choice in choosing Franklin as their head coach. He may not produce a 10 win team right away, but his image is something they are in need of up there. They need to change their perception and James Franklin is the guy to do it.

Based on results, Franklin did a hell of job at Vandy. I would have liked to seen him and Grantham get into it a couple of years ago after the GA - Vandy game.
