Groce is starting to feel the (sun) burn

John Groce's fair skin doesn't deal well with extreme amounts of sun. So while his and the other coaches' wives soak up the rays in paradise, Groce and the Illini have spent the bulk of their time in the gym and the film room.

"We've got a little bit bigger fish to fry right now," Illinois' first-year coach said Wednesday. "Plus, I'm not necessarily a sun worshipper. I get crushed by the rays, so I'm usually operating with SPF 75 or higher most of the time. I'm taking it in small doses."
