We need to talk about James Franklin.

Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

JAMES FRANKLIN WOULD HIRE THIS PRIMER ARTICLE'S HUSBAND BECAUSE IT IS HOT.

THE FOREWORD

With it being another week where men are being terrible to women, especially those in sports, it's a great time to remind you that James Franklin is kind of a sexist jackass! In case you need a refresher, Franklin said essentially that he only hires men with hot wives because this somehow relates to having confidence in front of high school-age boys. Sure, he apologized for it and called it a joke -- but his world view was exposed: women are not humans, but rather things to be accumulated by A MEN MAN. And maybe the comment seems fairly benign until you think deeper: this mentality fosters the culture problem in locker rooms that leads to Matt Barnes leads driving 95 miles to spit in his ex-wife's face and Greg Hardy throwing his girlfriend onto a pile of guns. Your girl is another line item on your resume. Maybe this viewpoint would not be so flawed if women were not also freethinking, autonomous, humans, as men are. Maybe the comment wouldn't be so bad if we didn't live in a country where possessive violence against women is a major problem.

Maybe not.

James Franklin has a nice, charming personality that makes me want to like him. James Franklin's views on women also indicate that he's an idiot, sexist pig that probably doesn't have any business leading an impressionable team of young men on a day-to-day basis.

ROLL DAMN ZANDER

I'm not advocating to go back to the days of switching out quarterbacks at random intervals, but giving Zander a package of plays might not be a bad changeup to put in the arsenal. Just putting him on the field for hand-offs might give the running backs the extra half-second needed to break a long gain as linebackers worry if the devilishly handsome trigger man is going to keep the ball and head to Touchdown City himself. And, of course, he's still a quarterback. If all the misdirection leads to a receiver running free, any ball lobbed in that general direction would go for a big play.

PENN STATE: PROBABLY NOT GOOD

PSU is a tough nut to crack in the early going, loved by the computers but failing the eye test. Maybe not failing, necessarily, but certainly avoiding the eye test. After dropping their opening game on the road to Temple 10-27, Penn State has won four straight, all at home, all to teams ranked 91st or lower. Credit to the Nittany Lions, as they had won convincingly over these hapless opponents until struggling with Army last week.
