DOTD: James Franklin Echoes ‘No Fall Weddings’ Sentiment
“No fall weddings.” It’s the de facto catch phrase of every die hard college football fan. Around here, Saturdays are for the Nittany Lions, not the nuptials. After this weekend, we know James Franklin agrees.
It all started when a Penn State couple tweeted a photo of themselves on their wedding day — a bye week! How considerate of them.

James Franklin responded, saying he totally agrees that true Penn State fans hold their weddings on the bye week. And to those who don’t plan it that way: “Are you committed to PSU FB or not lol”
I agree 100%, I don't understand people who don't plan it that way! Are you committed to PSU FB or not lol

Another fan responded to the same tweet, telling Franklin they have a cousin who’s getting married next weekend. Honestly, this might be the cardinal sin of wedding planning. It’s not only a game day, but also a night game, a Big Ten matchup, AND it’s the White Out. Oh, and did we mention ESPN’s College GameDay is making the trip to Happy Valley?
Sounds like a time to Choose your PSU family, 110,000 brothers, sisters and cousins! If your cousin REALLY love you they will understand

Coach Franklin really isn’t giving up on his #110kStrong campaign. Moral of the story? If you love Penn State football and/or you love your friends and family who love Penn State football, then please — no fall weddings.
