I honestly can’t believe I have to write this piece, but after the 79-7 rout of Idaho, some fans criticized Penn State’s head coach, James Franklin for running up the score. These are also the same people that will always find a reason to be upset at the head coach. If you can’t be happy with the performance on Saturday, you’ll never be happy. That being said, I feel the reason some people are upset at Franklin is simply because they don’t know the unwritten rules of football.

It’s finally time for us to give you our predictions for the first game of the season. As you should probably know by now, Penn State hosts the Idaho Vandals on Saturday at 3:30 PM EST in Beaver Stadium.
The game week tweets from Head Coach James Franklin have become the most beloved tweets for Penn State fans. The only exception may be his #WeAre Better tweets that signal another Penn State football recruit has verbally committed to the program.
Around noon today, Penn State’s leader once again tweeted out that Penn State was entirely focused on their Saturday opponent the Idaho Vandals. He says, “it is time to focus all of our attention on Idaho (x19)”.
For Penn State fans, nothing says football is back quite like Franklin’s weekly opponent tweets. Whether fans like the tweets or not, nobody can argue that it feels good the season is right on the doorstep.
