NCAA Tournament 2012: Power Ranking the Sweet 16 Coaches

Ohio University head coach John Groce appears to be begging for something in the above photo.

Whether he's begging for a call or begging his players to up the intensity or begging someone to listen to his story about the one he caught that was "THIS big," his desire is palpable.

It was effective, too, as his Bobcats knocked out a pair of power-conference opponents, Michigan and South Florida, to reach the Sweet 16 of the 2012 NCAA tournament.

Now it gets very interesting for Groce and his team, as he stands among a who's who of college basketball's coaching giants. Six of the Sweet 16 head coaches have won a national championship and three others have been to at least one Final Four.

Trying to rank these leaders of men is a tremendous task, one that should spark a vigorous debate. If your team's coach isn't No. 1, bear in mind that there's probably someone with an impressive resume in front of him, too.
