Heard it from one of his coaches at Bella Vista.Is this where you heard that from?
Groce was over his head but did a good job masquerading it for awhile. Never should have been hired.IMO Underwood is ahead of Groce bc he has a better percentage of bagging those top guys (though he has brought in significantly less of them). I just get this feeling like Groce & staff was a little pie-in-the-sky Pollyanna, where Underwood & staff has a bettter pulse of reality.
He was basically the best that Mike Thomas could land - which is more of an indictment on MT. I don’t blame John Groce for aiming high - he really thought he could do a great job, bless his heart.Groce was over his head but did a good job masquerading it for awhile. Never should have been hired.
If we got DJax we would have been very much okay. But, ya know, we didn't and we very much were not okay.He was basically the best that Mike Thomas could land - which is more of an indictment on MT.

Never did. He was handed nothing and tried to make a team out of it. Year two was a total rebuild, so could be considered year one all over again. And you can't build a team in one year. He stayed positive with the players he had, but is trying to recruit a balanced team that is able to play the style he believes will win. I never felt that Groce had a plan other than to play hard. Underwood knows what he is trying to build. Now we just have to wait and see if it works. But it won't be because of the job being to big for him.
From an X’s and O’s perspective, not at all. If Underwood is able to consistently recruit Big10 caliber talent, he will not only fit right in, but also be recognized as one of the better coaches in the conference IMO.
Really a great job by Underwood and staff to keep this group together.The fact that there were no transfers from last year's squad speaks volumes about Underwood IMO.
Available online. Never tried it.So I know this isn’t the beer thread but did you actually buy these cans somewhere? Where? They look like close to 16 oz cans which with that stuff Seems like overkill.
