Penn State's head coach, James Franklin, talks about non-conference scheduling as the Big Ten realignment unfolds.

Franklin suggests that a team in the conference is avoiding competitive matchups, without specifying which team.

Michigan fans interpret Franklin's comments as directed at them, with some taking offense.

Fans like Gregg Henson question if Michigan bought out games against Texas or Oklahoma.

Brock Heilig predicts that this situation won't end well for James Franklin.

According to a Penn State source, Franklin was referring to the Indiana Hoosiers for avoiding a game with Louisville.

Regardless of the target, the comments raise questions as Penn State prepares to host UMass this week.
