Report: James Franklin Is Only Mildly Excited For This Opportunity

In a strange turn of events, James Franklin gave quite the unexpected answer during a recent press conference. With spring practice underway and the Blue-White Game just two weeks away, one would think Penn State’s football program is filled with infectious positive vibes. Think again.

“We’re only mildly excited for this opportunity,” Franklin said. “To be honest, we don’t even want to go 1-0 this week. It isn’t even possible in a scrimmage against ourselves.”

He later added, “I expected to feel blessed, or to be absolutely humbled by this honor, or to have no words for how great this is,” an unnamed player disclosed. “Instead, I don’t know. It’s spring ball and it’s pretty cool, I guess.”

Despite his sudden transparency, Franklin didn’t disclose whether or not he had any new man crushes, nor did he break his policy of not talking about injuries.
