i tend to believe that most people are just people
the kids Groce recruited probably aren't very different on the inside from the people that Brad is currently recruiting. if they aren't buying in that's a leadership problem more than a them problem.
there were things i am sure that needed to change from Groce to Underwood or Beckman/Cubit to Lovie, but there has to be buy in from the indians, not just orders from the chief. "We need people to buy in," is such a ####ing cop out and you see these coaches (not specifically our guys i'm speaking globally here) all the time from these petulant assholes like Tom Herman. Hey Tom - they are paying you the $6mm to get the buy in.
i will give Lovie credit that even as guys have left the program he never really shit on them or the team in general. Keeps things pretty close the vest, never tries to publicly shame his team with the coach speak bullshit. Brad i just don't follow as closely but i'd say about the same in terms of keeping it professional.
The end of the Groce and Beckman eras were bad bad times.
And I think Underwood is a complete 180 from Groce
