Penn State coach James Franklin is still frustrated about the Pitt defense’s clapping throwing off Penn State’s communication prior to snaps.
While speaking at Tuesday’s press conference, Franklin made clear his thoughts on the intentional clapping. Franklin had previously shared his frustration after Saturday’s game.
Franklin continues to use strong words about the clapping. He may also have a right to be angry.
On Pitt clapping on defense to mess up Penn State's cadence: "It's illegal. It's illegal. You're not allowed to do it," Franklin said.

When asked about the clapping, Penn State QB Trace McSorley said he didn’t see Pitt clapping on film before the game.
Pitt coach Pat Narduzzi said the Penn State complaints are another excuse for the 42-39 defeat.
