Brother Of Penn State Quarterback Christian Hackenberg Is Not Happy With Nittany Lions Offense

Yesterday's season opener was brutal for Penn State. The Nittany Lions, who some thought could win nine or even ten games with a relatively easy schedule, lost to Temple for the first time since 1941. In the 27-10 blowout, quarterback Christian Hackenberg, once thought of as a possible first round pick, had an incredibly poor showing, completing just 11 of 25 passes for 103 yards, no scores, and an interception. Much of the criticism has been directed at offensive coordinator John Donovan—and now that includes members of Hackenberg's family. Christian's brother Brandon, a Penn State soccer commit, had this to say:

Hackenberg is certainly not alone. Penn State football alumni ripped the staff after the loss, and the Nittany Lions were trolled pretty hard by Ohio State and Maryland commits. Depending on who you ask, James Franklin has gone from the next great PSU coach to one on the hot seat in one weekend. Temple is a pretty good team this year, and is a contender to win the AAC, but with the talent at PSU, it is hard to blame fans for considering a loss to the Owls unacceptable.
