Kentucky used James Franklin’s words against him. The troll job on social media might’ve been one of the best of the college football season.
The Penn State head coach is known for his one-game mindset. Frequently, Franklin tweets out the name of the Nittany Lions’ upcoming opponent, proving that his team isn’t getting ahead of itself. Before playing the Wildcats in the Citrus Bowl, Franklin tweeted out the name “Kentucky” several times.
But that tweet worked against Franklin after Penn State dropped a 27-24 contest to the Wildcats on Tuesday. Kentucky used his words against him, resulting in a tweet that went viral on New Year’s Day.
Below is Kentucky’s response:

Kentucky got plenty of shots in after Tuesday’s game. Following the win, Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops told reporters to not “ever question who the real blue and white is.”
The Wildcats are a little cocky and confident after the Citrus Bowl victory, and for good reason. It was the program’s first 10-win season since 1977. Who wouldn’t be a little arrogant after that?
Kentucky is getting in as many shots as possible while it still can.
