    Don't shoot the messenger, heard it from two viable sources. Nothing to report official besides two extended phone conversations about big picture situation at FSU. Sandy was made aware of the situation this afternoon

    The only thing that would make him leave is an AD who can't raise the money needed for the stadium upgrades.

    Screwface should be verifying the balance in the PSU Checking Account. She might need to write James a check to stay.

    Well I think his buy out is only $2 mm.

    Pretty sure we could get s decent replacement if he does leave.

    Now we are not only tracking flights, but also tapping phones? I hear Moorhead has offered Franklin an assistant coach position at MSU and he is seriously considering it.

    I'm no FSU fan but they are on easy street playing in the ACC.

    I don't think it is a better job than PSU... noone would, but if the money is there it is a tough one.

    So does Moorhead's contract have an out clause for the PSU job?

    If there’s one good argument, that may be it. Penn State has to butt heads with OSU, Michigan, etc each year just to win the division. The last two years have illustrated those limitations for Franklin.

    FSU wouldn’t be easy (games vs Clemson, Florida, Miami, etc), but there’s crazy talent down there and it probably would offer a better path to the CFP year in and year out.

    All that said, I hope Franklin sees all the momentum he’s built here and wants to stay to finish the job.

    It is really simple. Franklin needs to hold a press conference and indicate that this is fake news being made up. If he is silent on this then we can only assume it is real. Cannot believe anyone was dumb enough to have a $2M buyout. Buyout should be the full value of his contract. What would he be paid if he was fired?

    PSU would be better off with Sarducci.

    If your sources are anyone other than Franklin's wife, I doubt they have any real information.

    It turned out, we actually improved when he left. If JF leaves, same could happen again. I doubt he leaves, but if he did, there won't be any shortage of qualified candidates to replace him.
