James Franklin On Next Week's Game At Ohio State: "You Said We Play Who Next Week?"

James Franklin quote about Ohio State.

Franklin has his shtick down pat.

Penn State head coach James Franklin has made it his thing to claim to never look ahead to games. He took that to a new level after tonight's win over Michigan.

Everyone knows Penn State plays at Ohio State next week. It is a huge game, and the winner has the inside track to the Big Ten East title. Franklin knows this.

But when he was asked about OSU following tonight's game, he intentionally played dumb.

Again, this is part of Franklin's act as head coach. He obviously knows all about Ohio State.

However, don't be surprised if the Buckeyes don't try to use his answer as a motivational ploy before next Saturday.
