DOTD: James Franklin Kicks Off A Blue Band Meeting

The Blue Band hyping up a Penn State football meeting (and especially Marcus Allen) was one of the cooler videos from the Penn State community in August. The band’s viral performance prompted James Franklin himself to return the favor at a Blue Band practice.
