March Madness: President Barack Obama’s Bracket For The 2012 NCAA Tournament [Video]

President Obama’s bracket for the 2012 NCAA Tournament will be revealed this morning. Yesterday I told you about his Final Four picks, which are predictably (and smartly) chalky.

Here is the President with Andy Katz discussing his Final Four choices:

Though the complete bracket has not yet been released to the public, here are a few observations we can make from the preview video above:

  • The term “Barack-etology” is awesome. I wish my name lent itself to a clever March Madness pun.
  • President Obama has Indiana advancing to the Sweet 16 and then losing to Kentucky – as an IU fan, I would take this. (Also, considering that the other fan bases IU would have to go through would be New Mexico State, Wichita State, and VCU, keeping the large, vocal, and probably right-leaning Hoosier Nation happy is definitely smart politically.)
  • President Obama’s bracket has Syracuse advancing to the Elite 8, suggesting that he did not execute any executive privilege in gaining inside information on Fab Melo’s status. The news has potentially ruined his bracket just like the rest of us!
  • POTUS has Michigan State in the Elite 8, but he thinks Missouri’s guard play is too strong for Sparty. He agrees with Andy Bottoms!

Here is a behind the scenes video ESPN also put out with Andy Katz and the great Doris Burke at the White House.

The President’s complete bracket will be released at 9:00 ET on SportsCenter apparently. Whenever they provide the link to it on ESPN.com, I’ll provide it here.

Update: Here is the President discussing his entire bracket with Katz:

    NOW maybe he can give us an energy policy. A new space policy. A border policy..  but at least ESPN has been airing Little Bill Simmons’ commercial about him and ESPN is airing 30 minutes of free publicity   NICE ESPN… 
     ESPN radio has been updating his bracket and his game viewing about every 30 mintues.. I know this because I work at an ESPN affiliat and sycophantic pove affair for the guy is endless..
