Groce: Time for his Illini to 'man up'

But they've lost four of six after a 12-0 start, and the panicked fan base is fearful of a repeat of 2011-12.

"Just because something happened in the past doesn't mean that it's going to inevitably happen," Groce said. "That's on us. We've got to control that with what we can control with our effort, our toughness, our togetherness, our mind-set. I think those things are things that we can control, and we've got to do that. If we can't do that, that's on us."
