Penn State coach James Franklin still hasn’t gotten over a key officiating mistake in last Saturday’s win over Auburn.
During the second quarter of Saturday’s game, the referees somehow managed to take two downs from the Nittany Lions on an intentional grounding call instead of one. It essentially led to Penn State punting on third down instead of fourth, which had Franklin fuming at halftime.
Franklin still wasn’t over it on Thursday. On the Penn State Coaches Show, Franklin admitted the team had to “clean up” some penalty issues. He then took the opportunity to take a shot at the SEC officiating crew that handled the Auburn game.
