It's amazing it's been 5 years.  I was apprehensive on the initial hire, but he's certainly brought me into the fold these last 5 years.  

 

I think John Groce is the kind of basketball coach that you HATE when he's not your coach, and LOVE when he is your coach.  Probably like Bobby Hurley was for UB fans.  I got caught up in those years of hating him as OU's coach so it took me a few to warm up.  The latest news on the extension certainly pushes me further in that direction.  Let's hope we have a long-term solution in place for MBB and football. 

 

Go Zips!

agree, although he's no where in the league of Hurley on level of obnoxious.  I hated him at OU but was totally on the Groce wagon once Zips hired him.  Noting the story in the Transfer Portal thread, regarding players threatening to leave the power conference teams if they aren't compensated...I could see why a coach would want to stay at a mid major and not deal with that headache

Interesting fact. The first time brothers are head coaches in the same conference.

Neat. Never would have known (obviously). Thanks for sharing.

Must be half-brother through his mom?  Proof the "hair gene" runs through the mother's side.

Well if he is going to work out I certainly hope he has a change of clothes; he will get all sweaty in the outfit he is wearing in that photo.

 

We need a head slap emoji. 

 

Man that "2030" makes me feel old.
