Wow. So tangled up in Franklin worship that you are dogging Joe Paterno.They also got dominated in many of their big games. Just for fun I looked up 97 and 98 where they were highly ranked to start the season.
97 losses were 34-8, 49-14, 21-6.
98 losses were 28-9, 27-0, 24-3
Thats with recruiting classes that would have been ranked in the top 10. Then we got the 99 collapse followed by the dark years. Looks like underachieving to me.
