Coaches getting a Gatorade shower following a big win or milestone is one of the oldest traditions in college football, or sports in general, for that matter. While no one leaves the house hoping to end their day covered in Gatorade, the jubilation of the moment usually outweighs the terribleness of wet clothes for a little while.

But when Penn State players decided to hit head coach James Franklin with a Gatorade bath, Franklin turned around and went after the player.

This was of course all in a playful manner, and there were laughs all around. But even with a fun-loving guy like Franklin, you don't expect him to turn around and make a solid form tackle on the Gatorade carrier.

Although, you never know, maybe he was just giving the guys some early film to look at for next game.
