Coach Franklin Wants You To
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.
