James Franklin gets his panties in a bunch, says Michigan needs to make change

On Saturday, James Franklin and his Penn State Nittany Lions invaded the Big House with the hopes of taking down undefeated Michigan.

Unfortunately, for Franklin and his supporters, Michigan absolutely pummeled Penn State to the tune of 41-17 in a game that was not as close as the score indicated.

What happened during halftime of Saturday’s game?

At halftime of the game, we passed along a video showing players from both teams jawing at each other in the tunnel leading to the locker rooms.

It was later reported that Penn State players were throwing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at the Michigan players as they tried to get to their locker room.

What is James Franklin upset about?

While talking to reporters, James Franklin, who clearly had his panties in a bunch, insisted that the Big Ten step in and make a policy before something “bad” happens.

“Again, I prefer to talk about these things in the off-season, but the one tunnel is a problem,” Franklin said. “It’s a problem, and has been. To me, we need to put a policy in place from a conference perspective in my mind that’s going to stop — we’re not the first team to kind of get into a jawing match in the tunnel. For me, I want to focus on getting my team into the locker room and not jawing back and forth.

“Get my team get in the locker room and their team get in the locker room. There really should be a policy that first team that goes in, there is a buffer. If not, this team starts talking to this team, they start jawing back and forth, and something bad is gonna happen before we put in the policy.

“All there has to be a two-minute or minute buffer in between the two teams. This team is in before that team gets close and however we want to do it. But we’re not the first team that’s had issues like that. To me, under the current structure we won’t be the last. To me, there is a really easy solution. We got to do it.

“But for me, I want to get our team in the locker room. That’s my concern.”

James Franklin should worry about his own team

As noted by Isaiah Hole of Wolverines wire, it was the Penn State players who started the scuffle by throwing PB&J sandwiches at the Michigan players as they tried to get to their locker room, which happens to be beyond where the Penn State locker room is.

It seems to me like the easy solution to this is that the Wolverines go to their locker room first and their opponent goes in second. This way, the entire Michigan team could be in their locker room before their opponent enters the tunnel.

Worry about your own team, James.
