WVU HC Neal Brown on Penn State’s Last TD: ‘Stuff Like That Comes Back Around’



WVU Football HC Neal Brown

STATE COLLEGE, Pa – Running up the score and classless or just part of the game? It’s a debate in sports that will never end as long as teams are playing until the clock hits all zeroes.

After enduring a 38-15 loss, West Virginia head coach Neal Brown was asked about if Penn State scoring one last touchdown instead of taking a knee in the final seconds bothered him. “I wouldn’t have done but it doesn’t bother me. Stuff like that comes back around,” said Brown.

Those words from Brown certainly sounds like a guy who didn’t appreciate the move by his coaching colleague James Franklin. But at the same time, it also sounds as if Brown is trying to downplay the situation and not make it a big deal.

Either way, Penn State won, and won convincingly. To no surprise, Mountaineer Nation doesn’t seem to be appreciating the Nittany Lions racking up more points in garbage time.

“Didn’t impress anyone with a classless move like that,” one fan responded to a comment about Franklin needing to throw up style points to impress the College Football Playoff Committee.

“We’ll have to remember this when Ohio state and Michigan do this to him later in the year and he complains about it,” said another West Virginia fan who mentions that Franklin may find himself on the other side when Penn State faces off against the top teams in the nation.

Either way, complaining about what happened won’t change the outcome and won’t turn a loss into a win for the Mountaineers. And that’s probably why Brown wants to just move on.
