After 12 years of the Jerry Slocum product that didn’t produce a whole heck of a lot of winning, Penguins fans are eager for something other than hoping the team happens to catch fire during the Horizon League Tournament and play the role of spoiler.
While I wasn’t here to witness it, I’ve heard plenty of times the past two years about how when the program was successful, the support was there. And the support for the women’s team has been there better than pretty much every school in the league minus the outlier of Green Bay.
So I feel confident saying while Youngstown is obviously a football town, basketball is a nice fix to tide people over before Indians baseball starts and finally football once again.
So who could be the coach to replace Slocum and maybe bring some of those fans down to Beeghly for a game?
