College football fans can be crazy. When a team loses one game by five points, it makes people do things that nobody should. In this instance, it’s sending death threats.

This is in no way a correct thing to do, regardless of what the situation is. On Tuesday, Penn State coach James Franklin addressed the matter:

Franklin said that anytime something like this happens to one of his players, he wants to be there:

Franklin is always there for his players. His players likely know that. That’s what makes Penn State what it is under Franklin — an elite program.

You are consistently seeing the Nittany Lions in or just outside the top 10 nowadays. Franklin being who he is certainly plays a role in that.
