Groce's first chance to brag

"I've heard about it from the moment I got the job in late March," said Groce, who Thursday afternoon raced from practice to a press conference in shorts and an orange T-shirt, despite plunging temperatures, howling winds and a rain that was just beginning to turn to snow.

"Our guys are excited to play. You can tell there's more pep in their step at practice. I thought we've been really good the last two days and today was even better than yesterday."
