Groce's class didn't have to stay in CU and a number did not, including the top rated player, so Coach U never had those players and they aren't being left to the new program, they would have to be re-recruited in short order. Second, don't cherry pick records and say we were 8-10 in conference, what matters is the overall record. Third, saying that what Weber left was pathetic is ludicrous. They didn't perform under Weber the prior year, but there was a lot of talent left. Paul made the NBA. Who that Groce left will even sniff the NBA (Note, players that had to be re-recruited and could've gone elsewhere at the drop of a hat don't count)? Fourth, NIT is no better than not making one of these silly tournaments, period. It's make the Dance or nothing. 4 NITs in a row is worthless. You make the playoffs or you don't. Stop trying to make a silk purse out of a sow's ear to make your argument.
