Groce might pan out but his resume doesn't look nearly as good as Weber's did at S. Illinois.
Groce is a good hire and realistic Illini fans should not be disappointed whatsoever. I'd bet a good chunk of money that 3 years from now people realize that Frank Martin's a mediocre basketball mind at best and Groce is in the discussion for big jobs.
