For a couple of years now, President Obama has participated in choosing the winner of the NCAA tournament. To no one’s surprise, this year is no different.

President Obama had picked the Tar Heels in 2009 to win and was correct, but hasn’t had the same luck in the past two years. It’s now 2012 and the President of the United States is looking to bounce back strong.

With sixty-eight teams invited to the tournament, choosing winners in any bracket has the potential to become overwhelming for some fans. This didn’t seem to be the case for our president. You’d be happy to know that our leader made crisp and reasonable choices and never failed to provide logical cases for his decisions. It’s exactly what we expected from the President of the United States.

In case you were wondering, courtesy of ESPN, President Obama had a few words regarding his strategy in picking the winner of this year’s March Madness.

“I am big on momentum, especially in a tournament such as this one,” President Obama said. Whoever is looking hotter at the end of the year, those are teams that I tend to be a little more inclined to pick. I like teams with good point guards because I think the ability to control a game, limit turnovers… I think that ends up making the difference. Other than that, it’s all throwing darts.

In review of President Obama’s bracket, our leader immediately counted out VCU [Last year’s Cinderella team that went to the Final Four] and even discounted Murray St. who posted a 30-1 record this year, the best in the country.

It’s clear that President Obama is not giving any team any favors. President Obama had received his degree in Harvard, yet he chose Vanderbilt over his school. As ESPN’s Andy Katz mentioned, it’s the first time Harvard has been in the tournament since 1946, a very long time. With that said, President Obama hasn’t lost his love for his Alma Mater. Regardless of his choice, President Obama has stated that he would still root for his school.

Overall, according to the president, the four teams that will be playing in the Final Four are Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio St., and North Carolina. At the end, the two teams that will be battling it out for the National Title Game are Kentucky and North Carolina, with the Tar Heels winning the 2012
NCAA tournament.

Regardless of the outcome, it’s a great feeling knowing our very own president bleeds sports just like many of us. Enjoy the tournament!

  1. I do appreciate that the President attempts to strike a balance in his life with sports, but I somewhat wish he made his picks independently of the Four Letter.

    • CDR says:

      Yes Jed, balancing your life with sports is always a good thing. It is pretty awesome that President Obama loves sports the way he does. In regards to the four-letter mistake… what can I say… sh*t happens. hehe

  2. tophatal says:

    If ” Bazza” can apply such diligence to the brackets then how the hell can he not do the same with regard to the economy and social woes of the nation ? Oh I know , like all other politicians he’s now become filled with so many platitudes and BS as rhetoric!

    • CDR says:

      Alan, you always seem to find the worst in people. I love it! Only if fixing the economy was as easy as “throwing darts” right? Nonetheless, I commend President Obama for not changing regardless of his stature and continuing to love sports just as he did at an early age.

  3. The Sportologist says:

    I’m sorry but Mr President you will be wrong this time

    • CDR says:

      If you don’t mind me asking, who do you think will win the Big Dance?

    • The Sportologist says:

      I have two different brackets but both have kentucky I believe. too athletic

    • CDR says:

      Betting on Kentucky is never a bad idea this year. The Wildcats just blew out WKU with the score of 81-66. I project them making it to the Final Four easily.

  4. It would have been funny to hear the Prez pick UNC over UK in the final game after saying something like “Well, we all know Calipari can’t win the big one.”

    Keep it real, Barack.

    • CDR says:

      That would’ve been hilarious Chris, especially in his voice! Calipari would’ve hated that! hehe

  5. Sam Brief says:

    I also picked UNC! He seems to go with chalk all the time, but what if one year, he went with a VCU-type team in the Final Four? I would love that boldness!

    • CDR says:

      President Obama for the most part does go with chalk in the brackets. Even I have a hard time being bold when it comes to March Madness because it just doesn’t feel right. But then again, Norfolk State and Lehigh didn’t feel right and look what both these teams did.
