Christ, you act like Groce should just be able to put lipstick on a pig and get it voted into homecoming court. 61 games lost to injury. Go find another D1 team with that kind of loss. That doesn't even count DPaul, who I'll concede was a bad idea anyway.
A coach needs to rally these guys to persevere through all the troubles and injuries. Nobody is going to feel sorry for us. Everyone in the media is happy to kick Illinois when they are down. So what you do? You adapt, you overcome and persevere. However he just can’t these guys to realize that.
