Penn State hires James Franklin

James Franklin is the next football head coach at Penn State. Franklin recently led Vanderbilt to three straight bowl games during his three-year tenure, winning two of them and forming the Commodores into a team to be reckoned with. He'll have the usual host of challenges in Happy Valley, but given the turmoil the program has experienced over the past few years, he'll really have to be on his game to bring the Nittany Lions another title.
