He wastes a couple timeouts and then calls THAT play?

And by wasting the timeouts, the game came down to that play, whereas had he kept them, there was still a chance even if the play failed.

Are you kidding me? Franklin just made Tomlin look like Vince Lombardi. What a horrendous call. 4th and 5 and you take the ball out of Trace's hands?? FCK HIM.

And remember...Ohio State was down two starters in the defensive backfield.

This after he had an Ohio State timeout and his own timeout to think about it!

How to you fckin tank a 2 TD lead with 8 minutes left?

Terrible defensive calls on OSU's drives and then that horrid call at the end. I don't have any more words for it.

I've always thought Franklin sucks and tonight proved it again.

OSU screened the shit out of that PSU defense (WR and RB screens) all 2nd half and they had no answers. No adjustments.

I don’t root for either team but I COULD NOT BELIEVE THAT CALL.

That’s almost worse than the infamous 3rd and 6 QB run the Arians called agains the Jaguars back in the day.

That could become a 100 page + thread on this esteemed website. Give it a few weeks and bring it up people will be stewing about it still. I was impressed with what Illinois did against Penn State early and same with Pitt. Penn State looked like they were gonna play a complete dominating game and show everyone who they are. Then they went and finished the game and showed the world who they are. I thought Meyer gave the game away when he went pistol with misdirection with about a foot to go at the 50. tOSU should have run a play called so rarely in the last 5 or more years in Pittsburgh the computers at NSA and Pentagon ping because every cellphone, laptop, desktop, tablet, teletype, stereograph, telegram, you fucking name it smoke signals. Morse code.... Morse fucking code.

Franklin told him to hold his beer as he decided to take the ball out of McSorely's hands and legs when it mattered most. Fucking read option is the literally the only play worse than a fumble on the snap. Who cares if you throw a pick in the endzone! everyone has to go more than 5 yards downfield then play ball to keep it going. Either let the QB with almost 200 yards rushing have a chance to throw or run on a rollout or just drop straight back and let him run a seam if the D was in man and nobody watching him which was the best plays they had sans 3 big efforts which were impact plays.

Splash plays if you will.

James Franklin is a great coach, and I truly appreciated that playcall.

No N. Bosa also.

I thought going into the game PSU's defense was a year away but they did a nice job rotating players. The collapse was bad but that call Franklin made was all time moronic.
HOW do you take the ball out of your best player's hands with the drive/game on the line?
Those attempts at the double QB tosses were another head-scratcher. Looked like they didn't practice it.

I get that he wants to get Stevens some game time but how about getting him in the gun and maybe using McSorley in the backfield or the slot when you go to that set?

Again, what made that call even worse is IT DID NOT HAVE TO BE THE GAME-DECIDING PLAY.

All Franklin had to do was hold on to his timeouts, and they would have maybe had one more shot.

By blowing two timeouts, he tied his fate to one play.

Sub-optimal.
