Not sure if yardbarker is banned or not, but they posted an article where Franklin is quoted as saying:
" I'm in Chicago at a wedding of one of my former players and the most recent things (allegations that late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno was told that Sandusky abused children in the 1970s) come up. I spend all Friday and Saturday on the phone talking to all of our players because other schools are contacting them and telling them the NCAA is going to get involved again and impose more sanctions… The people we’re competing with – Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame – this is just not something they have to deal with. Although we want to move on, those other schools are not letting us move on."
He goes on to say...
"Those programs as well as others know that and use that against us. We have that conversation with every single prospect. We don’t usually initiate it, but it’s coming from somewhere."
Does Harbaugh need to negatively recruit against PSU? No. Am I happy he does? Yes.
Here is to a thousand years of Penn State being trashed for allowing children to be raped on their campus by a football coach, and covering it up.
