Franklin stresses investment not pull back despite consecutive losses


It’s been tough sledding for Penn State recently.

The Nittany Lions blew their second consecutive fourth quarter lead Saturday in a loss to Michigan State. Penn State’s last five losses have been by a combined 12 points. However, despite the loss, Head Coach James Franklin said this is not the time to abandon the program.

“When you invest a lot in something and you don’t have the success you think you should have, a lot of people, a lot of organizations will invest less and I’m a big believer in that’s actually when you invest more. You continue to invest more and you drive through those situations and you drive through those circumstances. I don’t know a profession, I don’t know a career, I don’t know a game where you can have a high level of success without a high level of investment,” Franklin said.

Penn State hits the road this week to take on Indiana with kickoff slated for 3:30 pm.
