Photo: James Franklin Tweets, Deletes "NO TALENT REQUIRED" Penn State Graphic

Penn State's football program had a bit of a mishap on Twitter this afternoon. 

Nittany Lions' head coach James Franklin tweeted out a graphic of a player with "NO TALENT REQUIRED" in big letters and words like "work ethic," "body language" and "energy" in smaller letters below, implying that it doesn't take talent to do those things.

The tweet was deleted shortly after, probably because it's not a great look to have "NO TALENT REQUIRED" strongly associated with anything related to your program.

ESPN's Josh Moyer captured the deleted tweet.

Deleting that tweet was probably for the best.
