Mike Francesa RIPS Field Goal Franklin

Submitted by GoBlueFrom_RU on September 18th, 2017 at 10:09 PM

For those of you not local to the greater NY area, you may not have heard of the legendary Mike Francesa, who has been a host at the CBS affiliate WFAN for the past 30 years. If you are curious ESPN recently did a 30 for 30 on him and his old co-host.

Today Mike went on a rant for the ages, going nuclear on Field Goal Franklin icing the kicker while up 56-0. All 12 minutes are worth a listen, he even interrupts himself during the live ad read at the end.

Iowa knocks the crap out of PSU. I actually used to feel sorry for that program after the Sandusky mess and subsequent penalties. Now, they all seem like a bunch of cocky ass pricks...like their coach.

Karma can go suck a cock. If karma were a thing, then PSU, MSU, and OSU wouldn't be the past 3 Big Ten Champions. Meanwhile Michigan hasn't won since 2004. I was in fucking 8th grade.

Sorry for the rant. But when I am reminded that PSU won 2 B1G titles, then nearly had their program ended, then came back and won another B1G title, in the timespan that Michigan has done jack fuck and won one meaningless game against Luke Fickell's OSU, it makes me want to punch karma in the dick.

As someone who attended a night game there, these people are the most unrepentant hillbilly ass slack jawed fuckbags in our country.  They have absolutely no redeeming qualities outside the fact that an opioid epidemic will claim most of them at an early age.

They have a shrine to a man who enabled a child rapist, even after it is clearly established that the man enabled a child rapist.  Those fuckheads can all die in a massive collapse of their shit ass oversized high school bleacher of a stadium.

I hope that they all get black lung from coal jobs that fail to generate enough money to feed their future generations.

They have beaten the following teams so far (S&P+)

Akron - #119 Overall, #110 Offense, #119 Defense

Pitt - #69 Overall, #37 Offense, #95 Defense

Georgia State - #120 Overall, #127 Offense, #80 Defense

All of these games were at home.  All of these teams have substandard defenses.  They play their first real opponent this week on the road, at night.  Iowa's defense is ranked #19 FWIW.  You'll get a feel for how legit their offense is this weekend.  No matter what happens, Don Brown will get some real footage of their offense on film versus a legit defense.  I like this game for that reason alone.

Also, I do not feel sorry for their program.  After winning the B1G Championship, it takes an extra special asswipe to proclaim that the "healing can begin now" in the face of denial and delusion.  Fuck them.  Franklin is a douche canoe and his time will come.

say "I was trying to preserve the shutout, I wanted that for our defense."  

Which, fine.  I don't think folk would have an issue with that.

Talking about wanting to get the 4th-team field-goal block unit out there --- that's really not telling the truth.  Franklin does stuff rather regularly that makes me roll my eyes.  This was another one.

Francesa: "he's a horse's ass for doing that".

I sincerely hate Penn State. I didn't like them when they had JoePa, I didn't like them when the terrible news came out about their program, and I can't stand Franklin. My hope is that they win every game until October 21 and Michigan forces Franklin to kick a field goal down 56-0. This way the let down of those delusional fans will be immense. How a sane human can support that college after what happened is beyond me.

Was so disgraceful; it fits right in with PSU culture. He iced the kicker with 11 seconds left in the game so that Georgia State would not score. To then lie about it in his press conference after the game just compounds his disgusting behavior.

They did not show that on BTN.........big surprise.
