Penn State Football Morning Briefing: Deion Barnes Profiled, James Franklin the Best Hire of '14, and Other News


First, VBR wants to wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July. Even though it’s now officially the middle of Summer, we still have football on the brain. Sure, this holiday is great because of fireworks and cookouts, but for me, it’s one of my favorite because it means the college football season is getting even closer.

In today’s Penn State football news, there’s a profile of defensive end Deion Barnes and PennLive takes a closer look at Penn State’s special teams unit. Elsewhere, the Nittany Lions find themselves at top of two lists. James Franklin is called the best coaching hire of 2014 by 247Sports and NFL.com ranks Penn State’s classic uniform as the best in college football in 2014.
