For $3 million a year I just don't think you can say Underwood is a good hire. Groce was making half that at Illinois.
I'm going to keep going back to Underwood being literally the exact same as Groce. A good not great mid-major coach who you just hoped pans out.
Can I ask why people keep saying Underwood's resume is better than Groce at SFA?
Do people realize Groce went to the sweet sixteen and also upset #3 Georgetown in a previous appearance? Do people realize in the sweet sixteen he lost to UNC in overtime? Does Underwood's owning of a weak conference make him better? Keep in mind he didn't resurect that program, they made the NIT and tournament a 2-3 years before he started there.
I think people here have a STRONG receny bias going on right now. Unless you say you would've paid Groce $3 million in 2012, this is not a good deal at all.
