Ok, so the team is 2-2 thus far. Both of these losses were tough. Yes, losing these games did not help Penn State’s RPI, but 2 consecutive bad games will not make or break the season. We should be uplifting these young men. I wonder if they read these message boards? After reading some of these posts, I would hope not!
I’m not gonna lie, I became a nittany lion fan after one of my former players signed with Penn State. I want to believe that “WE ARE” stands for something more than WE ARE fairweather fans. As a coach, you want your team to go through some adversity during the year, because it’s ultimately going to make you a better basketball team down the road.
Have we forgot that they won the NIT last season? Granted, we lost some veteran leadership and quality players, but I think this team has the chance to be great! It may not happen right away, but they will get there. All in all, don’t jump the ship just yet. I plan on riding the waves with the team, even if it gets a little rough.
