Penn State and head coach James Franklin have had a very good partnership. Franklin has posted five double-digit win seasons, two Rose Bowls with one win, a Cotton Bowl win, a Fiesta Bowl win, and the 2016 Big Ten championship. Yet there is a sense of Nittany Lion fans not being totally fulfilled. Franklin beats who he is supposed to beat but loses to the Big Ten elite (Michigan and Ohio State). Penn State will cap off its 2023 campaign against the Ole Miss Rebels in the Peach Bowl.

The Penn State Nittany Lions have a troubled history of triumph and tragedy. And most of it is tied to the late head coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State won its only two national championships under Paterno in 1982 and 1986. Additionally, the Nittany Lions had three other unclaimed nattys under Joe Pa. Paterno won four Big Ten titles after moving his program into that league after decades in independent status.

Paterno went 409-136-3 at Penn State but was forced out in disgrace. In 2011 Penn State had a sexual abuse scandal blow up on the national news. It regarded former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky raping boys. Paterno admitted he should have done more about the situation when he learned of it. Although he reported what he knew to his superiors, he did not follow up. A cover-up ensued, and Paterno’s career and reputation were ruined.

Great former Penn State players include John Cappelletti, Mike Reid, Chuck Fusina, Kerry Collins, LaVar Arrington, Shane Conlan, Jack Ham, Lydell Mitchell, Curt Warner, and Larry Johnson.

The Nittany Lions have had a long tradition of being “Linebacker U.” Penn State has been a perennial power in that position.
