Franklin then joined in on the recent trend started by Kentucky's John Calipari and continued by Florida's Will Muschamp of calling in with a mild disguise, by phoning the show as "James from State College," which got him on the air.

The whole interview can be heard at CBS Radio Pittsburgh's website, with Franklin explaining the difficulties of proving who you are over the phone.
