The important task of nicknaming coach James Franklin

Should the news of James Franklin's hire prove to be factual it is important for Nittany Nation to come together in giving our new coach a fitting and lasting, shortened, nickname. Saying James Franklin takes too long.

Just for the purpose of originality we should rule out giving him the nick name Joepa or Bob. Those have already been used for Penn State head coach nicknames and they really wouldn't work very well to describe James Franklin anyway. Not knowing much about the coach I will just suggest a few possibilities based on his name only.

J Fiddy. Franklin...James Franklin. J Frank. J Money. Ole Dirty Franklin. Coach Franklin. Coach. The young ball coach. Bald Jesus. The wizard of Langhorne. JamesFra.

This isn't going well. Franklin coached under Ron Vanderlinden at Maryland. That doesn't help with the nickname. What if Franklin retained LJ and re-hired Vanderlinden? Maybe the Maryland Mack Daddy? No, there's no reason to give the slow, less developed territory to our south any mention in the nickname, even if they would become our recruiting bottom bitch.

James and the giant Beaver. Coach Frank. Coach eff. The Tasmanian ball coach. Dances with pigskin.

This is going to be a tough nickname.
