World News – US – James Franklin on Justin Fields: « It’s not just Justin, it’s everything around him as well »


James Franklin was so close to having Justin Fields as a quarterback

When the No. 2 player in the general classification of the recruiting class of 2018 committed to Franklin and the Nittany Lions – ???? do so in large part because of the noisy environment of White Out which was absent on Saturday night – it would have brought transcendent talent to State College

Instead, Franklin has now had a game plan for him two years in a row, and on Saturday night the future pick of the NFL’s top five draft tied his career with four passing touchdowns to match 318 of 28 yards. assists on 34 and a 1997 quarterback rating

Fields is possibly the best quarterback Franklin has coached against in his career, and when asked this exact question have you ever faced a better quarterback than Justin Fields? a???? Franklin got around it and instead referred to the overall talent displayed by the Buckeyes.

– I’m not sure, – Franklin said – He’s talented, and it’s not just Justin, it’s also all the pieces around him I think we have a pretty good pass rush We don’t couldn’t reach him much tonight so they protected him well They mixed up running and passing well They are very talented on the perimeter and wide receiving positions too â ???? all the things we knew one ????

When you have a receiving duo like Chris Olave (seven catches, 120 yards, two touchdowns) and Garrett Wilson (11 catches, 111 yards), a former five-star tight end prospect on the limit of Jeremy Ruckert who wins two catches from touchdown and a game run led by perhaps the best offensive line in the country (one that ends with over 200 yards led by Master Teague’s 110 yards and a score), there’s certainly an absurd amount of talent to be stopped

Nonetheless, Franklin and Co knew what they were up against when entering a match against the No 3 Ranked Team in the country that aspires to the national title.

– We had immense respect for them coming into the game, – Franklin said But obviously tonight we couldn’t play We had a few chances for big games Had a chance for one interception on the sideline You have to capitalize on the opportunities against a team like that We couldn’t get the tackles for the loss they were always falling forward We couldn’t get the sacks or the turnovers ????

Franklin also explained his decision to go for fourth in the first quarter, knowing it would be nearly impossible to stop the fatal Ohio state offense.

– We wanted to be aggressive, â ???? Franklin said That’s why we went there early We came into this game knowing we were going to have to score points, score touchdowns So we wanted to go as much as possible in the fourth downune situations ????
