Penn State head coach James Franklin responds to Texas A&M's reported interest

Penn State football is a perfect 6-0 on the season and currently ranked No. 3 in the country. 

The Nittany Lions went to the Rose Bowl last year and are on track to make the College Football Playoffs this season.

So why would head coach James Franklin want to leave after building a championship-caliber program at Penn State?

He probably wouldn’t, as everyone knows. Well, everyone besides Texas A&M, that is.

The Aggies have reportedly shown interest in making Franklin their next head coach.

Franklin responded to the rumor via his Twitter Friday morning.

That's pretty clear Franklin isn't going anywhere. Now in his fourth year in Happy Valley, Franklin signed a six-year extension worth $5.738 million per year before the season. 

Maybe the Aggies should give Johnny Manziel a call. He's available.

Internet sleuths uncover Doug Pederson cameo in 2008 movie

Before Doug Pederson was an underdog, he was a longshot.

Thanks to some super sleuthing from some folks on Reddit, specifically u/nosefinger1, it has been uncovered that Doug Pederson and his Calvary Baptist Academy football team made a brief appearance in the movie “The Longshots.” 

Since we don’t condone piracy, here are some screenshots.

That has to be Doug, right? If you needed more proof, u/dr_rex uncovered some more info.

The movie, starring Ice Cube and directed by Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, came out in 2008 and was a pretty significant box office flop. Perhaps they could have given the future Super Bowl-winning head coach a bigger role.
