    Joe Pa who? Coach Franklin has much bigger shoes to fill replacing Bill O’Brien than any other Penn State coach that there’s been. What Coach O’Brien did for Penn State football is two steps short of a miracle! I do really like Coach James Franklin but it’s going to be a tall task in front of the man.
