Before we get to WFAN's Mike Francesa and one of his classic screaming rants, let's go over the situation that led to it.

On Saturday, Penn State was up 56-0 on Georgia State with 11 seconds left in the contest. The Panthers' kicker lined up for a 31-yard field goal and Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin called a time out.

Guess what happened after that? Georgia State missed the resulting kick and Penn State walked away with a shutout win.

Franklin had an explanation for it - the "fourth team" was on the field, and they had no idea how to get into field goal blocking formation, so Franklin wanted to get his second unit on the turf:

And that's when we get to Francesa. This is gold:

"He's a horse's [butt] for doing that. That's a quote! … WHAT THE HECK DO YOU NEED TO BLOCK IT FOR? Ya jerk."
