PHOTO: Ohio's John Groce Wins Selection Sunday With Candid Reaction To Bid Announcement

The Ohio Bobcats were a lock for the 2012 NCAA Tournament after earning an automatic berth by winning the MAC Tournament title on Saturday in Cleveland. While their bid was a foregone conclusion, that didn't make the announcement of their bid, along with their seed and opponent, any less exciting for the team and head coach John Groce.

One of the great moments of Selection Sunday is watching the candid reactions of each team as their bid is announced - and Groce provided perhaps the best candid shot of them all. SB Nation's Brian Floyd put together a master post of gifs for each reaction yesterday, but the still image of Groce after the jump is one for the ages.
