Every year, President Obama fills out an NCAA Tournament bracket. And every year, someone out there gets upset about it. So this year, he decided not to fill out a….hahaha. Yeah, right. Did you really think President Obama was going to pass up on the chance to fill out a bracket from the White House one final time?
Once again, the Commander-in-Chief linked up with ESPN’s Andy Katz earlier this week to fill out a bracket. He picked Kansas, North Carolina, Texas A&M, and Michigan State to make it to the Final Four, and he picked Kansas to win the entire tournament. And he even told Kansas head coach Bill Self that he “owes” him for all the times he’s picked his teams in the past, only to have Kansas lose well before the Final Four.
“Bill Self owes me,” he said. “I’m putting Kansas in here. Coach, I’m just teasing. I’m not putting pressure on you. But I think the Jayhawks in a squeaker get past UNC.”
You can watch President Obama make his picks in the clip above. We’ll miss this next year.
