Coach Franklin Wants You To


Matthew O’Haren- USA TODAY Sports

When he was introduced as the Penn State head coach at a press conference back in January, James Franklin made it be known that he expected Beaver Stadium to be filled for every game, including the Blue-White game. A reporter in attendance referenced 90,000 people being in the stadium for games, to which Franklin replied that 107,000 will be there for every game.

Asking for a full house for a regular season game isn’t that big of a deal. However, asking that many people to show up for a scrimmage is. Franklin has since backed off his expectations of 107,000 showing up for the Blue-White Game. He’s now looking for at least 80,000.

In just a few short months at the helm of the Nittany Lions, Franklin has garnered a lot of excitement for the program. He added recruits to the 2014 class and already has a top class of 11 recruits for 2015. Franklin seems to be doing everything right. Fans need to show their support by flocking to Beaver Stadium, starting on Saturday.

    Why not turn the White-Blue Game into touch football and thus not add to the lengthy list of wounded and out for the season injuries of late? There will be enough teams this fall who will no doubt make their contributions to the lengthy list of walking wounded.
