James Franklin attends sociology class, calls out players for not sitting in front row

James Franklin was invited to serve as a guest lecturer in Penn State's sociology 119 class recently. Before he got started he wanted to make sure his players who were supposed to be in that class were there. Judging by the smile he sports in the background, that feels like a safe assumption.

Because this is great.

Franklin began his aforementioned sociology lecture by giving his players some hands-on accountability, and it turns out they needed it. Especially defensive end Micah Parsons.

Every Penn State player now knows the possibility that their head coach or someone else in the program could show up in their lecture hall and call them out in front of the entire class. The possibility is low, sure. But it's there.
