(Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)Penn State head coach James Franklin was direct to the point after the Nittany Lions’ tough loss to Ohio State at Beaver Stadium a couple of weeks ago.The head coach said that Penn State’s football program was a great one, but it wasn’t “elite” yet.Franklin said he was determined to get Penn State to that “elite” level following his team’s loss to the Buckeyes.Well, it hasn’t happened – yet, anyway.Penn State, the No. 8 team in the country, just suffered one of its most-disappointing losses in recent years, falling to Michigan State at home in the final minute.The Spartans scored a touchdown with about 20 seconds left to win the game, handing Penn State its second loss of the season, basically eliminating PSU from any conference title or College Football Playoff contention.Fans aren’t happy.James Franklin is now 3-11 against Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State.— Chris Dokish (@ChrisDokish) October 13, 2018James Franklin just moved Penn State’s program from “great” to “good”— Buckeye Videos+ (@BuckeyeVideos) October 13, 2018Joe Moorhead left. James Franklin looks very September of 2016 again. #Science— Matt Zemek (@MattZemek) October 13, 2018Starting to think James Franklin is a cliche’ machine. Completely mismanaged a lead and lost to Ohio St at home and now they have lost to a horrible Mich St team at home as well. Tired of hearing about Good to Great…….I read that book too!

D-line coach Sean Spencer was in disbelief. pic.twitter.com/K3pnDvKsVA— Audrey Snyder (@audsnyder4) October 13, 2018Losses happen, of course, but it’s understandable for Penn State fans to be furious after back-to-back heartbreaking losses at home.
