Penn State's James Franklin has a response to that Texas A&M chatter

Penn State's James Franklin has a response to that Texas A&M chatter

Franklin's attention has been diverted to a report by CBS Sports that Penn State officials are getting ready for Texas A&M to make a push for Franklin as a head coach if it turns out Kevin Sumlin is fired.

Would Franklin make for an upgrade over Sumlin in terms of what he brings to the Aggies? 3 Ranked Team 3.

But would Franklin be interested in A&M?

So that should be that for the weekend and moving forward, as Franklin and his staff continue to travel around recruiting before returning to State College on Sunday to prepare for MI. Franklin inherited a program saddled by NCAA sanctions and got PSU to seven wins in his first two seasons. His recruiting efforts have soared recently after a Big Ten championship in 2016 and a 6-0 start this season, landing prospects from New Jersey, Virginia, Texas, Florida, Michigan and OH, among other states. Despite an impressive overall record for the Aggies (44-21, .677), Sumlin may have to finish 8-4 or better to stay in College Station.

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) Analytical Analysis
The stock of Portland General Electric Company (NYSE:POR) has "Underweight" rating given on Monday, January 4 by Barclays Capital. It is negative, as 85 investors sold GE shares while 816 reduced holdings. 111 funds opened positions while 598 raised stakes.

Franklin, who agreed to a lucrative contract extension in August, has already coached in the SEC at Vanderbilt. Perhaps that's the main thing we can glean from this report, which, to be clear, does not even say Texas A&M *will* go after Franklin.

If A&M wants to poach Franklin from Penn State, the Aggies would have to pay a $2 million buyout for the Langhorne, Pennsylvania native and pay Sumlin the remainder of his six-year, $30 million dollar contract that he signed in 2013.

We're still several weeks away from that potentially coming to fruition.
