Hmmmm..... All the arguments of why a good coach wouldn't leave where he's settled to a new school and play Saban every year no matter how much money is thrown at him...

Sounds familiar...................

Penn St is a blue blood program, great tradition, facilities, etc., and they are successful on the field again after winning the Big 10 last year. Now that they have competent coach, why should it be surprising they have recruited well?

Let A&M get into a bidding war for Franklin. A&M has a lot of money, but Franklin would have to become the highest paid coach in CFB to leave a good situation in State College. Can't believe I even said that.

Like I said, he'd be an upgrade and we could do worse
I don't think he's much better than Butch honestly. Better yes but not enough to justify. Although, this program would be in a better place if we had hired him and not Dooley. That's for sure.

You think that Franklin is not much better than Butch? Seriously?

Franklin is a great coach. I wish he would come to Tennessee.

James Franklin is not going to A&M. Is not. Just like the Saban to Texas a couple years ago, it's just click bait to get people to visit their website.

It's not happening.

I think he made just over $1 million at the end, still the highest paid public employee in Pennsylvania.

The thing Franklin does better than Jones is adjust his offense around his players. He rides 2 or 3 key players to whatever glory they can bring the team. I'm interested to see what he does down the line in year 4 or 5 as he hasn't been anywhere past 3 years yet.

biggest downside to being Penn State is exactly what happened last year. They beat Ohio St, win the Big 10 and still get shut out of the playoff in favor of Ohio St.

Now I don't think this same scenario will happen this year but college football and this playoff is all about money. Schools like Ohio State, Alabama, Florida St etc are bigger money teams than Penn State

Had this been before they fired Strong, Texas would be outbidding them. For however much A&M could throw, Texas could throw more.
