The Internet Reacts To John Donovan’s Futility
It is a difficult time for Penn State football, and the folks are not happy about it. With this weekend’s narrow defeat of an inept Army team, tensions are beginning to heat up within the fan base…and within our Facebook comments as well.
One of my favorite pastimes during my tenure at Onward State has been scrolling through our Twitter mentions and Facebook comments. Sometimes I see our readers decorously engaging in thoughtful conversation, sometimes I find a kind compliment or two on one of my photos, and sometimes I even find an excuse to go jump on a trampoline!
Other times, however, I am aghast with the scorching hot takes that our commenters are spewing in their assessments and critiques of all things Penn State. No one is safe in comment section, and this week it looks like James Franklin and John Donovan have become the primary targets of our commenters’ fiery scrutiny due to a lackluster performance of Penn State’s offensive scheme.
So, in case you missed it, here are some of the very best comments after this weekend’s game:
Hey now, Kimberly, I for one am pretty content with Franklin and “his stuff.” Donovan on the other hand…
Whelp, it looks like the #folks have spoken, Donovan. Also it’s called proofreading Mike. C’mon man.
Going from giving Donovan a break, to taking the names off the jerseys, to comparing Franklin to JoePa, to calling for a (hopefully metaphorical) scalp-hunt against the coaching staff in 2-3 years, to bringing back Tom Bradley as head coach (who is currently the defensive coordinator at UCLA), to preventing Jay Paterno from re-entering the coaching staff, to firing Sandy Barbour…yikes, hopefully no one falls into this trap…
Oh no, this isn’t good…
Rod Dietz Mr. Dietz, CHILL!
Couldn’t have said it better myself Kent!
Unpopular Opinion of the Night goes to…
C’mon Laura Strobl, BE POSITIVE!
Wow. That is one #hot #take, Beatriz. Maybe stick to teaching spanish then, Beatriz.
Wow! So polite! Thank you Tom for being so kind and respectful on the internet. Ya know, this gives me hope about the future of our comments. Maybe one day all of our commenters will learn to get along and engage in thoughtful discussion…
Oops maybe not. Never mind.
