As he does every year, President Barack Obama has filled out an NCAA Tournament Bracket. According to the short release on ESPN.com, President Obama’s full bracket will be revealed tomorrow on the 9:00 am SportsCenter.
We have been given a preview, however, as the President’s Final Four has been revealed.
President Obama’s Final Four Picks
President Obama has chosen all #1 or #2 seeds for his Final Four: #1 Kentucky, #2 Missouri, #2 Ohio State, and #1 North Carolina. While this sum total of Final Four seeds does not fall within in the 7-13 range that history suggests is most statistically sound, the majority of Final Fours do include two #1 seeds, so the President’s chalky ways suggest that he should nail at least a couple of his Final Four picks.
Of course, as we all know, all hell has broken loose in the Final Four the last few years, so who knows what to expect.

There is no word on if the President engaged in a handshake like this with Andy Katz at the conclusion of filling out his bracket.
