Ed. note: Per ESPN, "A contract making Vanderbilt's James Franklin the next Penn State coach should be finalized and approved at a meeting of the school's newly formed compensation committee Saturday morning..." (more news and commentary later -- thanks to ICE for being sober and on-the-ball enough to post this. -MNW)

Either way James has been hired to Penn State. Most people, including me, seem to be really happy with this. Franklin had back to back top 25 seasons at a school that hadn't finished ranked since...... well, the records aren't showing anything so potentially ever.
The only thing worse for Maryland letting James Franklin walk, is James Franklin going to Penn State
