After ESPN talking heads told Franklin he would have to beat Ohio State with their "wrecking ball" best player following the expiration of Young's two-game suspension, Franklin said:
"Yeah that one timed up nicely." Laughter followed by the ESPN talking heads.
Is Franklin implying there is some corruption on the part of OSU and the NCAA on the timing on Chase's return? Perhaps he is just joking.
But it is interesting to note that Zach Smith said on his podcast that he heard from 3 high school coaches in the DC metro area (where Chase Young is from) that Franklin is the one who blew the whistle on Young's loan. If so, he would have been hoping for at least a 3 game suspension so he would be unavailable for the game. I don't believe this to be true, but Smith probably does have connections in that area due to recruiting efforts there, so maybe there is something to it. At any rate Franklin, enjoy your Saturday watching Mr. Young.
