James Franklin Ends Feud With Jim Harbaugh

Following Penn State's 41-17 loss to Michigan two weeks ago, James Franklin made his opinion clear about Michigan's one-tunnel setup at The Big House.

Yesterday, Harbaugh fired back at Franklin, saying the Penn State coach's actions were "sophomoric" and that he (Harbaugh) has bigger issues he's dealing with when concerned with his Michigan Wolverines. 

While speaking with the media today, Franklin said he didn't have a reaction to Harbaugh's comments, seemingly ending the feud between the two Big Ten coaches. 

"Franklin on if he has a reaction to Jim Harbaugh's comments from yesterday: 'No, I don't'," Franklin said, according to Onward Sports Tuesday. 

It appears that Franklin chose to take the high road here, but his decision to not comment on the matter may be because Franklin himself also has a lot on his plate this week. 

Penn State is hosting No. 2 ranked Ohio State this weekend, and it seems like the Buckeyes are the only thing on Franklin's mind.

"'Ohio State'," was the only statement Franklin made in response to questions asked about Harbaugh's original comments.

Penn State will likely need to defeat Ohio State Saturday to keep their Big Ten title dreams alive.
